CUIUS. FOLEY'S REJOIMtt  To the Kditor ol Tue Inuu-ikdknt:  Sir,���In compliance with a request  made and repeated iby the editor of the  Canadian Socialist that I defend my  position as a memiber' of the Western  Federation of Miners and president of  the Provincial Progressive party, 'I  wrote the communication appearing ln  last week's issue of that paper, in  which I endeavored Jn my own humble  way to justify my position. And, as'l  certainly endeavored to avoid anything  that would -be JlkeQy to grate harshly  on -the ears of the average socialist, I  felt myself entitled to a manly  and argumentative reply. But I was, I  must say, sadly disappointed.to discover that the article following my lei?  ter was written in a vein of childish ridicule, a shout quibbling sentence and  distorted ecread that reflects no credit  on Its author, and certainly tends! to  bring the noble cause It is intended to  promote -into disrepute. On com-  pleteing Its perusal, a feeling of sadness  rather than resentment took possession  of me. And the thought suggested.itself to my mind that" here again ,we  are -confronted with the same old  stumbling block, namely, the Intolerance of the'opinions'of others, and that  blind desire to assault the citadel without flrst becomllng familiar with the  enemies' position, that has so often  'caused iwreck and rutin, 'to , le-  ward the 'noblest eff9nts of ' maa  to uplift, humanity. And I thought,  well may socialism 'exclaim, "Deliver  me from my friends." Bombast, is but  a child's excuse for '  Poverty of Argument.'  "He (Mr. Foley)," the wiriter tells  us, "Vainly, endeavored! to - prove  himself .a socialist and at the same time  prbvei that'socialism was but a Ibubble  ond a dream.", Will the writer please  lay his finger on a Dingle sentence ln  the article under dlsoussion, wlilch,' by  the general accepted course of reas'on-  ing( can, by any means, be made, to  The letterfrom the 'Longshoremen's  "Union,' protecting against reporters b:  ing admitted to the meetings, was taken  up.  ACter a long and somen hat animated  discussion the motion passed at the previous meeingPi allowing reporters to sit  at the meetings, was rescinded Without  a dissenting voice. ,  rt was then resolved that The Independent, the oflloial ongan of the'counoil, as usual be the only paper allowed to report the proceedings of the  council. Carried with but one dissenting voice. x  t The Item in the' 'Longshoremen's  letter that none but members of trades  unions actively engaged at their respec.  tive trades be allowed to hold office or  act on committees was leferred to the  committee on by-laws. '  The laundry, workers reported that  their union had presented agreements  to the three laundries, the Pioneer, the  Excelsior and the Dominion. After  some consultations with the managements of these institutions, the Pioneer  and Dominion laundries decided to a;-  cept_the_unlon.-label.���The���Excelsior,  however, have decided not to sign the  schedule nnd will oppose the union. It  was resolved by the council to assist  the 'laundry workers | in their , light  against the Excelsior laundry.  The printers bi ought to the attention  of the council the, fact that thc secretary of th? .local Tourist Associattioii  had Objected to the union label being  put on the printing used In advertising  Vancouver. '  indicate a desire on my part to prove  either one or   the   other?  The   paragraphs alluded to will speak for theift-  selves.   I did'say that I was a socialist  acording to my conception of socialism.  I did say, and I repeat it, that many of  the brightest minds In tihe limitless field  of thought ito-day look upon socialism  as an iridescent dream that never has  Ibeen, nor never will be, realized.   But  I did not attempt to prove either one or  the  other.   My object   In  making  the  statements alluded to was to illustiate  how easy even the brlgih-test minds may  differ of be mistaken, and ito safeguard  against optimistic insanity rather than  to discourage'the propagation of socialism.   And the strongest argument  in defence of the position taken by nie  is the fact that the editor was unable  to grasp correctly my meaning in so  simple a proposition.   For if his mistake was intentional, the editor as- discredited; and if unable to comprehend  bo the excuse given, then I would bay,  using his own slangy phrase���'but veiy  expressive   phrase,   please���"go   'way  back and sit down and let some lurgcr  flsh into the swim."   However, tlie constant repetition of thete mistakes leads  me to question tlie sincerity raithei than  the intelligence of the winter.   And my  chagrin or disappointment becomes, the  more intense when, glancing back ovor  the  pages of history,    I realize    that  these nightly gatherings on tlie streets,  these   discussions   in   the  forum,   this  ever increasing volume of reform litera  the hands of men who assume that infallible .knowledge of social navigation,  which Is nothing more or less than the  Infallible Indicator of ignorance. The  present methods of socialists vvill, I  fear, .evolve another revolutionary triumvirate���the reign of another Marat,  Robespierre and Danton <w!thout oven  the restraining influence of the dagger  of a Charlotte Corday, whose ndvent  vun be the fore-runner of anothe-  Niagara of hrmun passion, bloodshed  and tears), by the side of which the  French revolution will be lnsigmia  cantt���which may launch Into exigence anttther Napoleon whose military  heel iwlll crush for ever our bright >st  hopes of industrial emancipation.  Agaiin we are told thait Mr.-Foley sa/s  that "the irilners didn't mean It when  they endorsed the socialist platform."  In meply I would say in arriving at that  conclusion, I followed "  -t.  The Editor's Own Line  of argument. "The Provincial Progressives pf B. C," the editor tells us, "are  voting for what they don't want. That  puity, originating with and being mo.*e  largely, composed of members of the  W. F .of M. than any other class, tihe  natural inference is that if the W. F.  of M. In B. C. vote for what they don't  want that the same 'body at Denver,  In endorsing thc socialist platform, was  guilty df this same absurdity." This  egotistical assumption of a monopoly of  knowledge an the past has been just as  fertile a source of human misery as Is  the present monopoly of the products  of industry. Let us .then In discussing  these questions > carefully avoid encroaching upon the, functions of the  all-knowable. Let us keep In mind the  words of the philosopher, '^Man is but  the creature of a moment in time, the  inhabitant of but a speck In' apace."  Again, the editor says, "Mr. Foley says  he didn't say what he did say." Mr.  Foley said that h'e didn't saiy what the  edltorsays^edld. And I, defy him to  prove his assertion, the evidence Is easily obtainable. ( Again, (we are told that  Mr. Foley jumbles his, words, using the  woid association instead -of - party.  (Shades of Spencer,' iwhat an ' argument���*!, .distinction without a' difference.) >.;We have the Liberal  association and a Conservative ossocUn  tion." "What is ithe matter wlth; a Progressive  association.   Such  subterfuge'  will not'cover ip the fact that there is  f       * i     f   "   -i"  a lacik of gray matter somewhere., "Mr.  Foley,", , the  winter  goes   on,, tp^say,  "wanits to see the   i ,.  ;.    ,  THE BLAUTllS MELT.

The death took place on Monday,  August 4th, of 'Eva, Infant daughter of  Mr. and Mrs. George H. Pound. The  little one was buried on Tuesday. The  sympathy of a large circle of friends  ls extended to the bereaved parents.  Saturday, Aug. 16th, is the date of thc  C. P. R. employees' plci.ic to Port  HammoaJ.  Don't fonget It. i    --','  ture, have Invariably been the foieiun-  neis of tlie most awful catafctrophies.  that  have  ever  befallen    tlie  human  race.   I believe, my friends, that  A Gilsis   ,  Is approaching���the most serious that  has over, perhaps, confronted civilization���and the outcome must bo'olthci  socialism or absolute Industrial slavery. Sliall wo madly rush oiver the  precipice icgvudiess of consequences,  or shall vve pursue the slower'but more  conseiv.itlve methods adopted by the  Progressive paity? Remember, we uic  trending on unexplored ground tint  may contain beneath Its surface a sn-  olal magazine. The experience of history lis against us. Then my advlo*  would Jie, go slow, carefully examine  the ground before you place your foot  upon lt. Do not permit enthusiasm, always blind to dangar, to obtain control  of the ship of socialism Wc aie bending wiithout a chart, for unexplored  vvateia thait have, I might say, become  the graves of most reform navigators  ln the post. Then let us study carefully tbe current winds and tides, as  we move along. Do not, I ask of you,  turn the control of the ship over into  ;    Millionaire and the Pauper  'i     '   " i ,  occupy,neighboring seats in our legislative bodies." Mr. Foley never sud  so, the editor's juggling'of words'and  meaning w the contrary iiotvvlthstani-  ing. Mr. Foley did say,' in alluding to  the modern political awakening "among  the workers, that, perhaps after all, the  d��y may not be so far distant vvhen the  laborer and iftie millionaire vvill occupy  neighboring seats in ithe legislative halls  of our country. And I now, wall! add  also that I.belleve the&e conditions  must obtain long before socialism will  be a reality. I do not object .to the  writer's moids, but to .tlie evident intention to mislead. Again, h'e asks,  "Why don't the Progressives vote for  what they .want, not for what th;y  don't want?" I believe that it ii bettay,  to vote' for a, mouthful of vvh.it we  want, and lepeat tt kis oui- social stomachs learn to assimilate the new legfs  lative food, than to tote for a cramming piocess that mull, likely lead to  a-sei ious-ca*e of_iSoci.ai~digpepsy that  may cut short ithe patient's existence.  We piopose to ivote for just what vve  want, and iin ju&t such quantities and  quality as Ave believe we can digest.  And until th2 editor ot the Canadian  Socialist can pioduce credentials to  prove that he alone can correctly      - '  Vancouver Union,  No.  151,  International Order ot Blacksmiths, ls enjoy  In? days of prosperity, overy meeting  night nevv members are joining, and the  work which is being accomplished for  ttwlt individual good as fully appreclnt  ed.   The union blacksmiths ore IioltMn;  the best positions in the city, and re  celvlng the highest  wages,  while the  non-union men, it is pleualng to know  theie are only a few, aro toeing underpay, and have  not  the security and  Independence of spirit that their more  faivored feltow-workers enjoy. ' It ia Impossible for a non-union blacksmith to  get employment ln either   Seaititle or  Victoria, in (both of which places are  two up-to-dmite'unions, and those outside the Brotherhood in Vancouver will  have to pay an initiation fee of $6 If  they do not join within a period of sir  weeks.   It ls shabbily for any blacksmith to remain outside the Brotherhood, as. the dues are email and the  benellts are correspondingly-great; and  morl so ibecauee they are an injury to  themselves and a menaice to those who  wish'to nelp ithem to better their condition. ( A word to ithe iwlse is sufficient.  It Is wiith feelings ot'supreme prile  we learn of the steady progress whlcn  the Brotherhood has attained'throughout the United States and Canada these  last six weeks, for no less than 1,000  members have ibeen enrolUed.    The financial standing of ithe Brotherhood at  headquarters Is iln ia healthy condition,  ovviing ito the administrative abilities of  the general officois, and were help re  quired it .would be generously granted.  It would  be hard  to iind two  more  genial ofllcers In any body of men unit  ed"to protect'.their common'Interests  than -the general president, Bro. John  Slocum, and the igcneral secretary, Bro.

In  conclusion I would say to .Mr.  Editor! please stop quibbling, quote  correctly, substitute alignment for bombast, save your ink and avoid unnecessary friction. C. FOLEY.'  Vancouver, Aug. 8, 1902.  stume of| the work of the Trades and  Labor Council,'referred in particular to  the 'motion-1 brought forward by Delegate J. HI'Wateon ln'giving poiv'er to  the local press to publish'wiithouit discrimination the   deliberations   of the  .i ,  Council, showed some of the ovil consequences which would follo.w, and declared that it iwas a blow struck,  thougih ha believed unconsciously, at  The Independent, the oigan.of trades  unionism nn tbe city. i  "Bio. fWJHiaan Baiclay believed tliat  The' Independent Mas doing a good  work for-the labor cause, and that he  was opposed to anything that would  curtail ilts"usefulness. He did not thmlc  for instance' that the great corpoiations  would open their doors to the press to  pjibllsh their line of attack on labor  unions, and, therefore,,'* -would not be  logical, it would bs ungate to uie a  weapon which would have self-destructive'powers.   -     .,  'Delegate Latham said he was lured  listening to the silly ivaporings of the  stieet socl.-illstrand~ivvas~of the~opinion  that their presence was not for the  good   of   the. labor movement   In   this  T~HE BARBEIRS.

"Now what nre you thinlting  nbout?'- ho nbrnptly nsked. "What  in the meaning of that look you are  giving mo?"  " I was wondering," sho said iin-  potuously, "if that is tho way yon  take your tronblcs and anxieties���  'lightly,' 'easily'���pveu when tliey  iiiviilvo olhnr livi-a! Oil!

Ho was about- to answer hor; but  thoy had como nem- to tho cottage;  and now* before thoni in tho path,  there, suddonly appeared ��� iv vision of  loveliness which elfeetunlly interrupted their discussion. It was Miss  Hnlo, in a dinner robo of a shade of  lavender so osqnisitcly harmonious  with Iho coloring of hor hair, eyes,  mid delicate complexion, that as sho  moved towards thoni down the path,  they almost hold their breath lest the  beautiful picture should prove, an  illusion and disappear into air.  An impulse���which Forney instantly felt to bo unworthy in himself���led  him quickly to glance into the faco of  his companion. What did ho expect  to read in her open countenance?  Hardly that which ho saw. There  was no shade of annoyance at tho superior beauty of tho other woman, but  on the contrary, Hiss Rankin's face,  too, was beautiful with its glow of  enthusiastic ploasuro, as she looked  At Miss Hale.  CHAPTER   Vin.  "'Have you boon out all afternoon?"  "Florence nsked, ns sho and Dr. Forney leisurely paced tho path iu front  of the cottage, nfter Miss Rankin had  gone indoors and loft them alone together. "I a��w you start off directly  after luncheon. How can. you be so  energetic in such warm weather? And  Miss Rankin, too���she wont out about  threo o'clock. I do not see how you  both stand it. "Whoro did you run  across hor?"  "Inthe wooda near ' Mrs. Ryan's  cottage.''  -"Mrs. Ryan's cottage? Oh, yes I  annst go there to-morrow morning.  An inconvenient place to reach. Tho  ���woods aTo so thiok around it that you  have to stop a quarter of a milo this  sido of it if you tiro iu a big carriaco.  But does Miss Rankin go about tho  ���woods alono?"  "Yos, I do not approve of it at all.  But sho won't be advised. Porverse,  liko the rest mt her sex.''  "Eut it is awfully improper���she  will bo talked about���but then," sho  added, with, a ihrug, "I suppose sho  does not think about that."  "I am sure she doos not," he snid  with a laugh.  "How oddly uhe must have been  brought up,'' Florence remarked speculatively.  "You 'can't always sometimes most  generally tell' about that. Now I, for  Instance, was brought up in tho most  6traight-laoed social orthodoxy���tho  conventional little standards of Beacon  ���streotsocioty-were-the-only���social,-  mornl, and religious code presonted to  my youthful mind. And look nt me!"  "Well? "What is the mottor with  you?   You aro not so very dreadful."  "Very positive characters I find are  generally what they are in spite of  their bringing up."  "Do yon call Miss Rankin a vory  . positive character? Sho does not impress me that way. I should say she  probably is what sho is because of hor  bringing np. .As for you���woll. I can  quite imagine yonr having opinions  of yonr own about things, no matter  wlinl you woro taught it wns proper  to think."  " I suspect Miss Rankin of having  a mind remarkably untraininclod���for  -a woman."  "What do you mean by an 'nntrani-  yne''-d mind,' Doctor?"  ���* '."Most women's opinions are mere  prey-dices."  '' I novor heard you disparago womon  befoi"."  "j\:.\ I disparnging them? I do not  anoan to. 'Twere cowardly to do that  ���for tlieir intellectual shortcomings  may justly be laid at man's door���his  /selfish and brutal ascendency over  i those physically weaker, but spiritu-  tally stronger than himself, is what  ias leapt the women back."  "Dear me I Men so seldom tok��  ���sfchat view of it I   But how have you  come to know Miss Rankin so well?  She is so quiet always I"  '' Yes. But occasionally,;she makes  revelations of herself. V   .':;,',' :���  "Do you thiuk she is nice?"  " 'Nice?' Well," he hesitated, "you  mean ?" ������[  "Oh!" she interrupted pouting, "of  course that isiijt the right word, but  you now whnt/l mean. Do. you like  her?   Thore!  /Does that suit you?"  "I like hor���yos," he answered, unenthusiastically.  "You do uot speak very positive-  ly."  "I do uot understand her quite.  She has contradictory traits. But tell  uie, now, what yon have ;beon- doing  all tho afternoon?" He looked at her  ns ho asked the question.  .!' Lying down, sleeping, or reading  most of tho time. Then I took a short  drive. Then I camo homo and dressed for dinner."  "Whioh reminds me that that is  what I must be doing," he said,  jrlaucing at his watch, "if I do riot  want to bo late. Well; I've got ten  minutes more to waste."  "To wasto! You nro civil I I suppose when you ore with Miss i Rankin  you discuss sorions topics all the time.  The Woman Quostion, the Education  of the Negro, and that kind of thing.  And then you don't consider your  time wasted. I should not be one  particle surprised if that girl were an  Infidel or a Materialist or something  of that kindl" ��� !      -'  "You make me shudder I"  "You are laughing at me.   Oh,   if  von were pushed to the.wall vonrself.  ii is more than likely ypu would nave  to own to being one, too. But then,"  sho' added, mildly, "it is 'not bo awfully dreadful in a man."  "From what- thoologoical system do  you cull that dogma?" ���  "You ' must acknowledge," she  said, "that an irreligious woman is  moro shocking than an irreligious  man." ,-��� ' -���-  "That depends upon your definition  jf 'religious,'.", he said, gravely. "I  think I should call Miss Rankin a  very religious girl, though... I do not  kuow her woll enough to feel sure.  As for you,!' he said,!with 'a sudden  access of earnestness,1 which made' her  look up at him in! surprise,'���' "I have  no doubt of you in that line at all. I  suspect, in spito of your assertions to  tho contrary, that you do not find  your shallow society lifo at_ all satisfying. Confess to me," he said,  oagerly, "that you have your most  real happiness in ''  "Intellectual pursuits?" slio brokt  in with a laugh. "No, Dr. Forney, I  have not! I can't boar lutelloctna  womon, and I hate reading improving  things and "  "I was not going to say that."  "What then?"  "I was going to ask you if you do  not find doing kindnesses for "  "Oh, thero you are," interrupted  Miss Matthews' voico from the  piazza. "I have been ^looking for  vou, Florence dear. Dinner is ready  and I wish you would como right in,1  I do liko to be punctual to my dinner," she added, as they came up the  steps and joined her. "My Father  always required us to be absolutely  punctual to the minute' and "  "You will have to be late," Florence said to him, "won't yon? Here  comes Miss Rankin already���it does  not take her long to make her toilet,  doos it? Au revoir t We shall see yon  later, I suppose."  He went up stairs to his apartments, while Florence, Mira, and the  portly Miss Matthows went into th*  dining room.  CHAPTER' IX.  It was late the next evening. Dr.  Forney was alone in his rooms, looking, over the evening's mail. The es-  pression of his face indicated that he  was not in a very amiable frame of  mind, and the abruptness with which  he took up his letters end tore them  opon, might have made a looker on  glad to know that the things were not  sensitive.  He did not really know that he wan  feeling out of humor, for he was not  aware of any particular reason for  the vague discomfort he experienced.  He did foel, however, that the day  had been unsatisfactory and that tonight he-wished.to-he alooe._Not_ev.eii_  Miss Hale in her lavender gown had  been a sufficient temptation to him  to remain down stairs.  In the first place, he had, in ttw  course of the day, dropped in at Mrs.  Ryan's cabin to see how she was getting on. He had learned, there;' that  "the lady" whose laundry tho widow  had failed to finish, had been at the  cabin in the morning and had been so  displeased at finding her work only  half done, that she had taken her  clothes away and had refused to pay  at once for the washing, "though they  was that white I And starched that  stiff!" lamented Mrs. Ryan.  But tho "Other Lady" had made it  up to hor, Bho said.  Dr. Forney's heart hod grown unaccountably dreary at tho intelligence. "Miss Rankin promised me,"  he had regretfully thought, "that she  would overlook Mrs. Ryan's tardiness."  "Did yon ask tho Other Lady about  giving your case to me instead of  sonding you to Now York?" he had  inquired of the widow.   .  "Yes, sir,'and she said she knew  yon was a good doctor and she'd think  about it." v  "You told her I would make no  charge?"  "Yes, sir, ond she sayed that was  no consid'ration.     She   don't mind  payin'. But sho thinks it would be  better if I didn't hnve to (to to New  York. She'd of got you , to ,';take; the  case in the first place���but-'she 'didn't  want herself knowed. You're stayin'  at- Boring Coast Hotel, ain't you?','  "Did Miss Ho���-the Other Lady,"  he corrected himself, "tell yo�� I wm  thero?" ���'���'"-"���'      ''���'-:- A>'/A"  "I don't remember where she sayed  you wns,'' she. answered, receiving  his question as an affirmitive reply  to her ovvn. "She sayed she'd deride  real soon whothor she'd give herself  awny and let you have the case."���? I ''  He hnd come awny. from1 the cabin  fe'eilng depressed, and his "blue  devils" had grown steadily more blue  as tlie dny. moved ou. At' the table he  had been silent and tactiturn, and immediately after dinner, liad betaken  himself to his own apartments.'    : ;  Seated by a centre table - strewn  with books, papers, magazines; and  over which hung a lamp '. suspended  from the chandelier, he. was moodily  aud without"'interost going over his  letters. Most of thorn related to business ; one or two wero from friends;  several from patients. There were a  few invitations���one to a yachting ���*-.  enrsion; oue to a bicycle tour, 'sal  ono to a house party at a summer  homo in Vormout. He groaned at tho  prospect of' having to answer them  all. - ������'';. '��������� ii  "It is not an easy task to ay'truthful James' like myself to have.tocon-  juro np expressions of'gratitude: for  kindnesses which bore me to death,"  he morosely told himself. ,     '.- .,,. ', :  Tho last letter which be picked up  bore a type-written addross. He tore  open the ouvolopo and took a closely  written (but not; typo-written)' sheet  of pale blue note papor; the writing  was a good feminine' hand���the small,  '' literary hand"���not the' fashionable,  angular script; but the first six lines  were written vvith lead and the rest  in red ink.  ,., "My own Darling," it legan.  He turned iu surprise to the signature to learn who was the woman  that ventured to take such liberties  witli him.  "With my constant love,  '    "Mira."  He would not have known who  "Mira" was, for her letters from  Titzel & McVay, which he hod handled, had been addrossed merely to  "Miss Rankin"; but he recognized  the penmanship. However, this was  of course a mistake Why should Miss  Rankin be writing to . him? Surely  she had put the wrong letter into the  wrong envelope. But what had sho  intended to, send him in his typewritten envolope? Accessible as he  was at all hours 'of tho day, why  should she address him through the  mails?  He was puzzlod to know what to  do with the letter.  "Evidently she intended communicating something of which Bhe did  not wish to speak to me, so if I returned this letter in person it might  be very embarrassing to her."  He wondered why on earth she  should have had the envelope typewritten. Thore was a young waitress  in tho house who had a typewriter,  and no doubt Miss Rankin had gotten  her to address the letter to him.  "But by Jupiter!" he suddenly  said to himself, "maybe this is not a  mistakol She is an unusual girl,  and," he grimly told himself, "if  sho did love'mo, she would perhaps  think it deceitful not to frankly tell  me sol Heavon only knows I To conceal the fact might be toadying to  Mrs. Grundy 1   Lot us see.''  He spread it out and read the penciled lines:  "Tho maid ls cleaning my room;  Miss Matthews and Miss Halo are in  possession of the library, and so  while I possess my soul in an unoccupied and noarly barren room on the  third floor, tor from the madding  crowd nnd my ink bottlo, I mean to  convcrso with you."  Here the pencil lines ended, and the  red ink began,���and Forney read on:  "At this point, I spied on the mantel a bottle of red ink���looks like rasp-  borry-ade, but% I know you are not  'proud,' so I'll uso it.

The question then arises7, Why -do  not such explosipns take place' anywhere on the earth's surface instead  of through the crater of a volcano ?  This has-bcem explaincd-by-an eminent scientist, who sajs that thoy do  sometimes tako plnce nt rrndom, so  to speak, and when that happens thc  world boholds thc phenomenon ot the  formation .of a new volcano,  But, ordinarily thc explosion occurs  through the vent, or throat, of an  already.existing volcano,, becauso tho  weakest places in .the earth's crust  are the. places,where ncwlissures-aro  most likely to bo fornicd,. and along  these linos of weakness the volcanoes  stand i like rows of safety valves or  chimneys.  It docs not necessarily follow that  because one volcano breaks out its  neighbors will follow suit. Some-  times there seems to bo some ;��� sympathetic connection between remote  vents, as in the caso of Mont l'eleo  and La Soufrlere!

He had been turned out of his dwelling for rent, and  sought "refuge in the ruined tower of  Mar. A' few years later an ash sapling w-ns growing from the topmost  stone, and,"one member of tho family  Went upland'grasped it'in his hands,  wondering if tho old prophecy wns  going to be fulfilled nt last. Evidently it was, for in 1822 George IV  appe.n od on the scene to seek out the  .Irii-obite families nntl give them bnck  then own, and foremost amongst  them nil was Erskine.,; of,Mar,. ,to  whom the monarch graciously restored his ancient earldom. One-item of  thc pi'ophecy remained, and it, u>o,  was verified. The Countess was never '.presented at St. James's, but she  accidentally met Queen Victoria in a I  small loom in Stirling Castle,   and  tho Q-cen !.i.n.cdltvt��Iy asked wtjp  sho was, detained her, and kisled  her.  There is a'romantic episode in tho  annals of a branch of the family, tho  Loids of Kellie Early in the reign  of George III. a,ship foundered ina  gale off the const of Iloss-shire, and  the, sole survivor was a baby girl,  who was washed ashore in her little  cot on the land of "Adam Gordon, of  Ardoch.. Gordon took the foundling  home to his wife, who brought her  up with their own two daughters.  Sixteen years went by, and ono-  stormy night another vessel-was  wrecked almost, at tho samo spot,  one passenger and' the, crow being  saved. ��� Gordon extended* his hospitality to tho former, a merchant  from Gothenburg, who had no sooner set eyes on his host's adopted  daughter than ho discovered . in her:  un extraordinary resemblance to his  sister. That lady, it appeared,; had  perished in the previous wreck1, ' and  the clothes the baby woro in tho cot  proved beyond a "doubt that tho  young girl Was indeed his-niece. The  girl untl <>hcr uncle went back' to  Sweden, accompanied by Anno Gordon; who there :met;and married: a -  Scottish merchant, Thomas Erskino.  One .wedding led to another, for Joanna Gordon went to stay with her  sister,; and - became tho wifo of.

'  On the death of the Earl of Marin,  1866, the old line was broken, and  as it had more than once already  passed through the female side, the  title was assumed'- by the deceased  nobleman's sister's son.

LICENSE COMMISSIONERS.  Just (previous to the last municipal  eleotions we took t'he stand ithat the  control of hotel licenses should be eliminated from the power of the city council altogether. That if it .were not for  the contending forces ot the temperance  and liquor ek-ments competent men  could be Induced to run for aldenn.'inic  honors. This w.-u, pooh-poohed at lihe  time. (But at la.st -Monday night's meeting of the city council the Roundness  of our contentlonS^-as approved by the  foot that a notice" of motion was give-n  to relieve the mayor of tlhe city of the  onerous duties of chairman of the  license lioai-d. This is a move in the  rlgiht direction, and -should be supported by every alderman on iLhe council.  The -whole board ot license commissioners should 'have full /power ito make  the regulations governing public  houses. The city council must be pureed of the ibiitter controversies of whiskey polit'lts, which are .too much akin  to rellgiio'lus arguments. T/hoi-e are men  on that boaid to-day, were itnot for  the stand alone Ihey took on the liquor  question, would not be elected. Consequently we take the view that the license board should be given Cull. jpovW  ers and,,pe heldlreslponeIble���tOll���tiIe���e"ec,;'  itors for'their actions.". This can! only  be done jjy electing three commissioners, the one polling the highest nmriber  of votes to be chairman, and let the  government appoint the other two as  usual.   As it ia now the powers vested  i Uhe license board are nothing If not  deal.   This  body  is ibut  a .pigeon-  : ale for   the council, as    it were.,  If  tlie board rwere separated from the city  lunoil altogether, the locul temperance  'luestion tlhe'n could be fought out to  a finish nt the ipolls, without injury to  the personnel rand make-up of the citv  council, whose ulutties in a. now erty are  varied and of vital concern to the progress of the community.  At last Monday night's meeting; of  the "My council a notice of motion was  Hlven to create a board bf police commissioners, and that n resident Judge  be one of thein. The daily press generally approves of this. This Is, ino.n  Important to the .wage-c-at'iilng classes,  nnd .savors too much of despotism to  lot the niiutter jkiss .without notice.  Our jud-gt's are appointed by the Jjo-  nvlnlon government. And of course it  would not llk<iy appoint, any one" a  Judge unless he was of the rlRht j-ollt-  ic-al kidney. We ilon't think t'liut Ihorc  Is a Judge in this province who would  be ,iccc\i)table to labor In rthls city .is  a police conniils-loiicr. Alrcudy Judges  arc Invested with too inuoh Jiovver,  whlifli should be curtailed considerably  by law, -without Increasing thait power  to local police affairs.

To the Editor of The Indui-khdhst.  Sir,���Apropos of yonr editorial anont  iny query respecting a certain Socialist  newspaper's criticism of the lirstish  govermont and the Hoers, I would like  to say that 1 am liritish to the core, not  merely in name or sentiment, but in  national life; secondly, I am a Socialist,  and belong to the Socialist party, which  is afliliatcd with all the Socialist parties  throughout the civilized world. We are  banded together in a class-com-cious,  political body for the purpose of going  to tlie polls, taking over the reins.of  govern umt, and running the country  in tlie interests of the wealth-producer,  tlie worker, the "under dog," whether he  works with his brain or liis brawn. The  charge laid at the Socialst's door that lie  is a traitor nnd disloyal, is not true. I Ie  is thu most intensely loyal, patrotic  citizen, since lie has the very best  interetts of the-country in which be  lives, nt heart. I have heard it slid  that His .Majesty, King Edward VII., is a  Socialist, that he is in entire sympathy  with any movement calculated to better  tho condition of-peoplu;-wheruVur-EUch  means am required.

Sociiilinin is Mich a big subject, thai.

For some Mine I haive been taking; m
a few stores ln the 'town aiid' have read

my experience Js -t'hat"unlon-made goods
ane never presented -by union'/ clerks
until asked for. is this fair? I contend that ithe duty'of union clerks ils to
jpusfli union label goods iirst and explain -when he -places them before you
.that ithey are-fair labor-goods. Also
I wlah to ask Is It flair Wiat a person
should toe' compelled to ask for Hair
made goods'when a store'displays a
union clerks' card. I notice they ar3
not particularly prominent, but they
are there If you have good prying eyes
to see them or enthusiasm enough to
ask for them. In /my estimation, the
union cler<k as a general rule is a sort
of weak-kneed Individual, W forfeit?,
as lt .were. He (parades his union only
when '"as_cc& audi I. ipresumkfhe makes
as much ot-every occasion" to his employer as possible fpr ;hl^ Own ne^•son^I
benefit. The union made goods have a
seleot, place to themselves—left to be

your fellow woikers to ask for^nlon
-made goods he Innnedi'ately gets them
and pretends to be enthusiastic too.
Now, the may I readi this is that a
man who believes hi Is right, and has
a pilnctple to buck It, ls willing to pay
a little extra for It.- But look at the
unfair posit/ion - of the' goods. They
llrst Arid out the man and they figure
that, as he wants, fair goods and Is
«oIng to haive them, they can clap on
extra promt,/as I am. sure It>must be,
because it you go in to purchase --without first asking for the card, and aft;r
being shown s.6m« goods 'ask for the

If the Mime of "Battersea" has become a synonym for daring departures,
no lets has that of John Burns become
a synonym for Battersea. The famous laibor member for parliament is
too well known to need nn Introduction.
Besides representing Battersea at
Westminster, Mr. Burns Is Its London
spokesman on the London city council,
ami he has been responsible, personally,
for a good deal of the borough's bplrlt
of experiment. The energetic agitator,was glad to talk about the dlfterent
rrojects he has helped to launch. "I

every s.-itut day end Sunday during the
cummer In the parks, and here In Battersea we made up our minds to find
something to serve as a substitute of
those concerts during the winter, and
found it in the municipal organ, choir
or orchestia.    The concerts are given
eveiy Tuesday, and on church festivals
we have sacred concerts—'the Messiah'
and other oratorios.   And the music Is
good; in fact I sometimes am afraid
thai It is too good and that the flrst
thing we know the 'West End' will discover it and we ehall be smothered by

was small at flrst, but, like Topsy, it
has 'growed', and the organ recitals and
concerts have with our   people largely-
taken  the place of   the music halls,
which have become cheap and vulgar.
Then," continued Mr. Burns, "we went
to work to make some provision for
our boys, and decided to open a recreation room for ourembryonlctoughs and
potential riflians, where we could divert
unimallsm, which is simply manhood
gone1 astray, into   the right channels.

Fnluo was private secretary to  Charles Palms, the Wall street financier and millionaire. Ho had been ln  tho Arm's employ for fifteen years aud  , had worked his wuy from olllco boy at  ?3 a week to private secretary at $3,000  per year.  let us ho sat In tho luxuriously fitted  office he was not the happy hearted,  "lucky dog" his associates deemed him,  for ho was in love���aud ho told himself  hopelessly���with -beautiful Margaret  Palms, daughter and solo heiress of his  employer.

The  old man had evidently no suspicion of  the romance that had- been going on  uudcr his vory eyes.  It had all taken place during the last  six weeks, while Mr. Palms was con:  fined to his home on Fifth avenue with  a fractured kuee. His secretary  brought lilm every noon whatever papers demanded his personal -attention  and received further-instructions. ���..':���' ;���'.'  During these'daily.visits Jack found  himself fast succumbing to the young,  girl's charms.:: The more he struggled  the deeper ho became engulfed Iu the  nil absorbing passion. Margaret, too,  had given him to-understand, as only n  .woman can, that she carcd;for him; yet  ho dared not speak. To gain the covet-1  ed prize he must first convlnce.her father of his financial capabilities.-'-- -  This seemed Impossible, for all that  he possessed In tho world beyond his  salary were a few acres of nonproductive Pennsylvania land; .which' he ha:d  purchased several "years before during,  the oil boom. ���--���'���-x;.-'  Ho recalled all this with "a'El'gh.'Thpri'  his facefliishcd wlthnewborhihope 'as  and then to '200 per share amid great  excitement, which Increased to frenzy  when It became known that Palms'  private secretary was actively enguged  lu the deal.

Popular Books Unread,  i Some light Is.thrown on the position  Which ri public library should take in  regard to the fiction of the day,by the  recent statement of n London librarian  as recorded in The Library World. According to his experience, many of the  :books most conspicuously advertised  are ln great demand, but are not read.  This one huge book, which could hardly  be read inside a week, was drawn  eleven times in a month, nnd It is a  common thing for one of these books  of tho moment to be drawn one day  and returned the next, the consumer  evidently finding the goods not up to  the advertisement. This shows that an  artificial demand can be created for n  book Just as for any other article of  merchandise If sufficient effort and  skill are used In advertising It.

"And so King Charles, who was  unite worn out with travel and hunger," read the voice, "cnnie nt last to  n Inrge barn. lie slept all night with  nothing to eat. and nobody knows Just  what would have become of him If ho  had not found an egg, which he de-  vuur-cd ea-'ger-Iy."  As Harden listened a whimsical determination moved him, nud, leaning  it little farther dowu, he snid gently:  "All thnt is very true, except that I  have not found the egg."  Ills uuislcnl tones glided so easily  iuto the story that the little reader  looked up without even a btart In the  restless and handsome dark eyes gazing down on hers and lu the lines of  the face she saw only the countenance  of the tired Charles. That the story  Lid come to life was nothing wouder-  Tul. All stories were alive If one ouly  recognized It properly. She lookod up  at hiin seriously, dropping her chin on  it supporting hand.  "Why huve you shaved off your  pointed beard?" she asked gravely and  with feminine irrelevance.  "I am too young yet to have it," said  King Charles as gravely In return.  "That-waa later on,-you-know."-  she murmured, "but I don't know If I  ought to do It"  "Ask away," said the monarch cheerfully.  "I'll answer."  "It's about a long word ln his book.  I thought you could explain It"  "Bring lt up here on the hay. You  did not tell anybody that I am here?"  "Course not," said the reader very  reproachfully. "'Sides, there's no one  to tell.

Meilnwhlle their  two heads bent together over tho page,  and the reader delivered her words  with n labored air, troubled by their  undue length:  " 'King Charles might have succeeded in nfter life In making a good king,  for he had many talents, but he was  always of a vu-cll-la-Ung dls-po-sl-tlon.'  Now, what doos that menu?"  "It moans," began tho king bitterly,  and then a sudden Intuition mnde him  look ovor the edge of tlie hny. Thoro  stood tho two men whoso presence on  his track he had most dreaded and who  met his startled gaze with cynical  amusement.  "Como down!" said the nearest  curtly. "XVe don't want no nonsense."  Tho reader saw the color die away  from the king's face, leaving a dull  allien gray, and sho wondered If so  many cpgs had disagreed with him.  She also peered over the edge.  "Who   are  those  people?"   sho  mantled.   "Are they royalists?"  "Yes," said thu king quietly. lie  laid dowu the book and made his way  to the floor below, while the reader  slid after him.  "You didn't think we'd find you,"  grinned tho second inan, "but we are  old hands at this game. Put out your  wrist. I'll see there ain't no divorce  'twixt you and Jim here."  The king held his wrist out silently,  while the wondering render looked on,  watching them handcuff him to the  man called Jim.  "Are those silver bracelets?" she asked perplexedly. "And do you like him  so much that you lot him be fastened  to you? Is It because ho is so loyul to  you? Aro you perf'ly sure everything  is all right?"  "Perfectly sure," returned the king,  with great gentleness.   "Goodby, little  maid.   Be certain Ijvill never forget."  "Nor mo," she answered, a sob catching in her throat.   "I hud you for such  a littlo while, and now you are going  nway���going Into your kingdom."  "Yes, into my kingdom."  "Will nil the people moot you?   Will  they ho very glad?"  "Thoy will bo glad."  She saw the three forms pass out of  sight, the king walking between them,  as befitted his rank.   When thoy were  utterly gojie, she thought forlornly of  how sho  must return  once  more to  mere empty pages.   A sense of strong  desolation  smote  her,  and,  climbing  up again upon the hay, she cried herself softly to sleep.  de-  InconaUtcnf.  , Brown���It's curious about people's  beliefs.

Thoy are In  the bouse, only thoy nre boiled hard,  ready for the picnic this afternoon."  "They will do," returned the king  hastily. "Bring all of them, and mind  you don't say a word to any one,- on  account of the Roundheads, you  know!"  "I know," said the reader confidently. She hurried nway, leaving the hook  of historical tales forgotten on tlie  Iloor, Und not tho king himself step-  pod out of tho loaves?

"That last egg ls sticking half  way down my throat and refuses to  go any farther."  Sho brought the water hurriedly, remorseful that she had no raw eggs to  offer Instead, but the king wns not difficult to please. The last oue disappeared, nud he sighed as though he  might have eaten more. Ilowevor, he  felt greatly refreshed and told tbu  reader so.

She was sitting down  to rest after her walk of a mile or  more when a shadow darkened the  open door and she looked up to find a  tramp on the threshold. Tliero was no  mistaking his avocation; he was lcau  and ragged nnd hungry looking; ho  was sunburned nnd tough. It wns half  a mile to tho nearest farmhouse, and  yet nfter the first thrill of alarm the  schooliun'ani was not frightened. On  the contrary, she saw the opportunity  to read a fellow being a moral lesson  and sho wns rather pleased. Miss  Meeson had Ideas. They were Puritanical aud more.

"Now, then," she ��� continued nfter  looking hiin ovcr, "you nre a luzy good  for nothing and wouldn't work If work  was offered." ,  "K'reet, miss," he answered.  "You go tramping up nnd down the  country, and you do not hesitate to  steal as well as bog."  "Perfeckly true, miss."  "You've probably been In jail?"  "A dozen times." ,,  "I thought so. You have a red nose,  nnd I've no doubt you drink."  "Like a fish, miss, when I can get  it."  "A pretty specimen of a man you  are!" she continued ns she warmed to  hor subject. "A vagrant, a beggar, a  thief und a drunkard! -You are also a  jailbird, and I don't suppose you ovcr  speak tho truth except by accident."  "You've hit It, mls3," replied thc  tramp, with a fleeting smile.  "Cast In the mold of a man, yet witness tho degradation!" sighed the  schoolma'ani.
