August 1900, 'nil  rampiidment to tlie Dill incorporating  the/Vancouver and New Westminster  Railway,was moved by Mr. Mcliinos.  Tiiis aiiiPiidiiK nt provided that no  person should be, employed in the operation or constructiou of tho Railway  who could not read the Act of Incorporation in a\ European language or  whose nariie was not on the register of  voters or unless he* was a Caucasian or  tin Indian.  This amendment- was of: course intended to exclude Chinese and ��������� Japanese from employment on the Railway.  The amendment was strongly opposed  by' Mr. McPhillips of Victoria and  others. ,      '   '  After a long discussion a vote was  taken and the amendment was declared carried on the following dvii-  sion.  For���������Messrs. Brown, Curtis, Gil-  inotir, Kidd, .Martin, Mclnnes, Oliver,  E. C. Smith and,Stables���������9.  Against���������Messrs. ' Fulton, Garden,  Hunter, Rogers, McPhillips, Mounce,  and Murpliv-���������7. ���������      -" '  It will be noticed that the Opposition voted solidly for the exclusion of  Chinese and Japanese and that every  supporter of'the Government'on the  committee, voted in favoo of these-  people.  This vote is certainly a1 vet-}' instructive one and indicates1 very clearly who  are the strong opponents of Chinese  and Japanese and who are, in spite of  their protestation's to, the���������' contrary;  favorable to these undesirable immigrants. "   .    * , '"   '  In  the  Private Bills  Commit toe on  tlie Gth August the Western-Telegraph  -and   Telephone   Company's   Bill   was;  .further considered.  Tt. was moved by Mr. Smith Curtis  to limit Ihe horrowingepower of I lie  .company' t<i the fair cost price of the  company's corporeal' property! The  vote for, was Brown and Curtis,  against Clifford, A. W." Smith and  Tallow���������Lost.  Mr. "Curtis also moved, to add a  clause wheieby, the government after  the expiration g-f five yeais upon giving one, year's previous notice lias the,  right to purchase, all the property and  franchises of the company at the fail  value of its corporeal property arid  lea ies, togetl er with such bonus (if  any) as it may deem advisable, not exceeding 10 per cent of such fair value.  This*provision carried. "' - ���������  Mr. Curtis also moved that the following clause be inserted:  " No person shall beeiiiplojed by the  company in the construction, erection,  and operation of the. telegraph or telephone lines and plant of the company  who cannot read.this act in a European  language or unless he is,on the last  revised provincial voters'-list or is of  Caucasian or Indian blood."  1 A vote was taken,"Brown and Curtis  voting foi , it and A. W. Smith and  Tallow against it. Chairman Helinc-  ken gave bis vote against,the motion  and it wa< declared lost.  In the Railway Coiiiinitteo a similar  provision wns moved by Mr. Mclnnes  to be inserted in the railway charter  before the committee and a vote was  taken, Messrs. Brown, Cuitis. Kidd,  Martin, Mclnnes, Oliver, Stables and  E. C. Smith-8 for ir and Messrs. Clifford, Fulton, G.nden, McPhillips,  Mounye, Murphy and Rogers���������7 against,  it-  Chairman Pooley who had previously  unnoticed that the policy of the government was in opposition to such a  provision, then claimed his privilege,  under Rule 87 of voting and voted  against the motion making the vote a  tie and by Rule 87 the-motion was  declared lost.  As the motion is aimed at the Chinese and Japanese it is now quite clear  in view of Mr.,'Pooler's specific announcement of I he policy of the government that the latter is going to  object to restrictions upon their employment.

Tin-: Liberal Association of Re\ el-  stoke after mature consideration' and  lecognizing the importance of immediate action in view of the proximity  of the .Dominion elections, have issued  I (r  a ciill for a convention of representatives from the variuus provincial elec-  '��������� toral districts in this large and important constituency of Yale.-Cari.boo���������,  the largest and probably ,the most important in the Dominion of Canada���������  for the purpose of selecting a candidate  ��������� to contest this constituency in the  interests of the. Liberal party. It is  the 'general belief, that the elections,  will take place this f fall, but whether  they taho place this fall, or not until  next June, it behooves the Liberals of  ' Yale-Cariboo   to  get into lino at once,  /;   and nominate   a candidate.,     Prompt  action is   more   necessary  in this con-  ; stituency���������because of its magnitude���������  , than in' any other in'the Dominion,  find were a candidate in the field now,  and the elections as far'oft as it is-pos  siblo they could.be', he would not have  any loO'inuch   time to thoroughly can:  "vass the constituency. We, would  urge upon" the Liberal associations of  Yale-Cariboo the necessity of imme-  diatc and united action and ask their  hearty co-operation in the nuttier of  this convention.  The convention has ibeen called at  ' ��������� Revelstoke not because the'Liberals of  Revelstoke think they arc of more  importance! than the Liberals of any  other section of Yale Cai iboo, 'but  because they believe 'Revelstoke is the  most ^central point in the const latency  and by reason of its fii'.st class hotel  r.ccouimodation it i.s in every way fitted  the holding of audi a eoiTventiun, and  in this   opinion   llioy   arc endo  Miss Celia Cross, sister of,, the groom,  and Miss Nellie McClung, daughter of  Rev.

OUR OTTAWA LETTER:  Miserable  Tactics  Employed   by  the  Conservatives.  *      ',      '       ���������  Ottawa, August i:���������Everyone who  has (ravelled in an express train oi by  ot her, mean.-; of rapid locomotion has  experienced the exhilaration of the  movement, and tin-same effect appears  to be1'produced on (he tor'y politicians  by the rapidity with which development and reform is being carried out  in the various departments of public,  policy by the Lainier government, for  they keep shonting'to go faster.  When the postmaster general, for  example announced a substantial reduction in the imperial letter-rates,���������  a reduction by the way, which his predecessor .a few short years before had  declined to be inpracticable,���������the to<y  press commenced, clamouring for fm-  ther reductions in "domestic lates,  which they knew right well would be  accorded as quickly ,as the exigencies  of the revenue would permit. <��������� Wheirit  was proposed' to reduce the postal-  rates on newspaper's, the Lory senate  even went so far as to throw'out the  bill under the plea that it did not go  far enough, though of course no one  was fooled by this pretence.  Marvellous improvements have been  introduced by Mr.'Mulock in the celerity with .which the mails' ars handled,  collected end delivered, particularly in  the larger centres of population, and  the: improvement in the mail service  generally in this respect throughout  tlie country have been immeasurably  greater in the last two- or three year's  'than in the previous two decades: and  yet the tories,, who did not even attempt any, of these things during the  long period in which they had. the  elrince, .are now clamouring for a free  rural mail delivery suniliar in some de-'  gi-ee to the system which is being developed with considerable promise of  success in the republic to the. south. ,  , It i- vi'i-y'pleasant of course to notice  this streaK of useful activity in the opposition for il is a much better expenditure   of   superfluous     energy    than  .,, I j   , | working up  fake  charges against  the  3 i '"overnment and  wasting  the  time'of  sister associations in other, parts of thy j p.u.H.U])C.nL for m;,,-es, nests.

As Mr. Fielding remarked in  the house last session: every step taken  by the present Government whether  with respect to legislation or to departmental administration, has been in the  direction of removing restrictions and  lessening the price on' oil. The duty on  imported oil,' which existed under Unit,  government, with icspeet to inspection  of oil, which could only take place  after it had been put in barrels, have  been abolished, this facilitating cheap  "and convenient melhods.of handling  ihe oil. The. number of points at  which oil can be inipoi ted inbulk in  tank cars has been increased. Permission 0 lias been given to 'use tank  waggons. The former regulation forbidding the use of tank ships has-been  repeated thus giving along the line of  water communication the opportunity  to receive oil by cheap' transportation:  When, railway companies 'increased  their freight rates on oil in such a manner as seemed likely to prevent competition in the oil trade, the government on the advice of the railway  commit tee of the" privy council disallowed the'increase and ordered the  restoration of the former rales. In  short every step taken'bv the present  government in rt latiou lo-the oil business has been for the purpose of removing 'burdensome restrictions, reducing the cost of handling the oil and  cheapening the aiticle lo the consumer."

<��-      Copyright, 1900, by C. B. Lewis,
,,    "Have I ever killed a man?"-       '    ,
Of a sudden, as he lay dozing on,his
<*��� bed in camp one day, Private Hollins
asked  this  question   of  himself. , He
' ,  had been in battle and 'skirmish.    He
'   had fired away..'liis 40 rounds and tired
to kill, but,as, he began to recall all
his battles be1 could not remember that
,     lie had ever laid an enemy so near and
so fairly before him that his bullet had
surely done the work.   There were few
.   soldiers   who   lioasted   of  taking  life.
There   were   sharpshooters   who,,,'had
brought down a dozen  men. but they
never talked about it.    Men were pro-
.   moted   for   desperate   fighting,   which
-  |sometime:- meant killing single handed,
but they were proud only of the promotion.,,   It   was   a   curious   question
.     Private Hollins asked of himself, and
it'led to strange resells.' He was not
a bloodthirsty'man. and yet as he lay
- thinking the idea came to him that he
bad not done himself,'justice as a soldier. " He had not killed a man. When
the'war was over and he had returned
home, lie would be asked-the question."
His friends and neighbors, wouldn't be
^satisfied with his record of buttles, but
would sweep it aside and sny:
"Yes; we know you Were hi five or
six battles and that yoti-firod. hundreds'
of bullets at the enemy, but eati<*you
truthfully say you ever brought a man
down?"'        ' '     ���
lie couldn't say it', and lie felt that
he would lose caste. This feeling
brought a sudden resolve. It was a
resolve that startled him at first, but
the more he thought of it the more determined he was to carry it out.* Ile-
' would kill a man: he would do it next
time he went on picket. There were
no orders against firing. It wns by
t��ci.t agreement among the pickets that
they refrained. If lie brought one of
the enemy down, lie would not be reproved even if not praised.* He would
not boast of the kill to his comrades,
but when lie reached, home and fanners and,their wives and sons sat listening to his-stories of war he could
answer the question they would be
' sure to put, and answer lu the affirmative. It was a fortnight before Private Hollins was detailed for' picket
duty. He was not impatient. He was
willing that time should pass, but
when the opportunity came he would
kill a mnn. He uever wavered in this
"This Is your post, Hollins," said the
corporal as he left him one afternoon
nl the edge of a wood under a large
-oak. "We don't know exactly where
the enemy's picket is. hut It's somewhere uround that log house. However, if you don't get too fresh unci.,go
- to walking around, in the open lie won't
bother you. There hasn't been a shot
fired along here for two weeks. If you
go In for roasted acorns, don't make
much of a fire."
"Today I shall kill a -man," snid
Private Hollins as he was left alouc,
and he began his preparations at once.
At long rille shot, away across an old
cotlonfield, was a log house with a
few fruit trees standing about it. One
might he sure the farmer was off to
war nnd that wife and children, if they
bud not abandoned the place, were
having a miserable existence. Hollins
crept down to the frluge of bushes on
,hls side of the Geld and peered and
watched nnd waited like an Apache in
ambush. For an hour be saw nothing.
Then a gaunt, ill used dog came among
the trees and trotted about in the open
, hi a sneaking, furtive way. If the dog
was there, the house must be inhabited. He had just come to thi.**? conclu-
���ion when he caught sight of a figure
anions the trees.   It was between the
(Douse and the hushes, where he believed the enemy's picket was lying.
It must be the-pick''! on bis way to
'and from the well. Perhaps be li.-.d
gone'to the bouse to light Ii:s 'pipe or
buil his coffee. There was a gli:n;i>-'
and it wr.s gone. Another glimp.-e. another biding! and then (be figure was
fair to view. It was a long shot, but
a pretty fair target, and without an
instant's hesitation lie drew up bis gun
and fired. When lie looked over the
smoke, the figure was gone.- ���
"But I know I hit liim, and he's lying dead on the grass," said the soldier
ns' he reloaded his gun. "Now 1 can
(ell (hem at homo that I killed -a man.
Mighty long shot, but I dropped him
for sure."
'  The dog wns still in the' open.    A��
the   shot   rang   out, he   looked   b.-wk
nmon~ the trees.  ��� A.tt the echoes died
a.wny he turned his head lownrd II"!
lins and howled dismally.,,  A mirucat
later and  the  tigure  of a  ymiug girl
appeiired'- beside   the   dog.'    Kin/   was
bareheaded,   barefooted  and  not   ovrr
8 years old.    Hesitating for only a mo-,
merit, she began a Jvaneing across i'.io ���
field.    -The, smoke   from   the sol.r.ei's
muskethad located him.    The , dog, followed at her heels, head and tail down,
and with surprise Hollins watched tl.e-
giii's approach. ,  It  took her live minutes   to. cross   the   field.      She   came
straight at-him as Ire *\otu) up among
the bushes, iind when she readied hhri
she extended'her hand and clasped his
and said: .   '
''Come along, you!" ���
He rested bis musket against a log
and permitted her to lead him out iuto
the open and across the field.'  He did
not inquire why she had come.   lie did
not ask where she 'was leading liim.
Xo't a question passed his lips,' nor did
she speak further.   Straight across the
field to the trees among which his victim i had stood, but long before he got
there he saw a form on the grass.   By
and by they were close up to it, and
the girl let go of his hand and pointed
and said:    u ���    '
, "You shot main!"   . '
r It \vasn|t,a ninn lying dead on the
grass, soldier or farmer, but a woman.
The soldier rubbed his eyes and looked
around-In a dazed, way".' -A hoy" of 10
and h girl of 5 came out of the house
nnd stood there and looked from the
soldier tto the dead womaii and back.
They spoke- no word; they shed no
tears. It was true that the enemy's picket post was in the bushes a few rods
away. The man ,on post came'out of
his hiding. He came walking slowly
down, and when he had reached the
body there was a gasp In- his throat.
He looked around upon the children,
looked up at the blue sky ns If speaking to God'.and,'with a groati, turned
his bnck on the place and returned to
his post. ���
"Well?" queried Hollins of tho children ns they continued to stare at him.
They simply pointed to the mother
lying dead-and.uttered no word. The
soldier 'tried to speak again, but lie
could not. With face whiter than the
one on the grass, with quivering chlu
and blinded eyes, he' made his way
slowly across the old Held to his post.
As he lurched and staggered he, heard
the" dog howl again, but no one tired
upon him. no one called to him. When
he reached his post, he snt down ou
the ground1 and covered bis face with
his hands and.groaned. An hour later
the corporal came with the relief. Hollins was lying on the ground with arms
"Sny. boys," snid the corporal, ns he
bent over the body, "I'll be hanged if
Dan hain't gone and killed himself
with his own musket! Who'd' ever
have thought it of him!"
Up there among the trees, standing
about with the awe of death upon
them, the children bad heard the shot,
and ns they looked at each other the
girl hnd whispered:
"Mebbe he's dead too.'"

ns will be readily seen, intellectually
of a very high order. The chief is supposed lo have taken- voluminous notes
at the rehearsals of the play they are
seeing performed, to have consulted
with the manager, to have chatted
with the author���in short, to have
made a close study of the entire work
ou which his "brigade" Is (o be engaged. He Is the spring of the claque.
The men under his orders, scattered
here and there under thp chandelier,
are merely parts of the machinery, rind
they would no more think of applauding on their own account than they
would think of flying.
Once upon a time there was a daring
claqueur who did not von it for the signal, but his short connection with the
profession���he was immediately relieved of his fauteuil for breach of discipline���hardly entities him to the honor
of mention in the same company with
eminent claqueurs. The part he applauded happened to be the only good
scene in the whole play. Ills sense of
art, unfortunately, was stronger than
his Idea of duty. Seized with uncontrollable enthusiasm, he, the only man
of taste among the claque, made tlie
house ring with applause. He is now
