[Wc do not hold ourselves responsible for I lie  opinions exprjn-ied by our correspondents.],  Introducing the Spoils System'.  EuiToii Kootenay Mail: "  Sir,���������I  have  waited,1 .and sorry   lo  say in vain, to see  the local press cull  attention   lo an  occurrence  hen- lasi  week which is  without doulit a public  scandal, being   nothing   less than the  introduction   of    what,   is   coii'inmnlv  called in politics  "ihe spoils system,"  a system  so  roundly and justly condemned l>y all good citizens.     We   all  had  ,an   idea  that such  a system did  exist in a mild form and, while pointing  the finger- of scorn at our neighbors in  the United States where this system i.s  practised throughout, the whole body  politic,   congratulated   ourselves  that,  its existence was inure in  theory than  practice in this  country.     But it has  remained for the "fiiends" (?) of  the  piovincial -idiiiirii-lration in this town  to disabii-ie  our minds of   this impression, and word |,ns gone out (hatnone  but   "our'   fiiends"  are to, be beneficiaries  of   .-1111 roprialions   for-   pulilic  works in the matter of gelt ing employment, thereon.Men havebeendiscbarged  and, what seems almost incredible,, tbe  reason   assigned   liy   the    peisons   in  charge of the woik was that they weie  suspected of having voled against, | be  successful candidate at the late provincial   electi mi.    This  is cerUinly the  spoils sys-tsm with a vengeance.   Now,  sir, this is a .statement of fact, and affidavits can be made to substantiate it.  Is  Mr. Taylor or ihe   Dunsiiiuir government .aware of it;   if so will they  shoulder the'responsibility and stand  convicted of an attempt to corrupt and  intimidate the electorate with the public moneys of this province ;  the alternative of course being to publicly disavow  all  knowledge of it,   place   the  blame wherever it  belong.*" and immediately stamp out this abuse.     Weiu  this province do not take kindly to the  introduction of one of the worst a buses  of the United Slates-an abuse whitb  The people who pay the revenue,  should have the say as to how such  ' revenue'ia to he invested. Civic government should -be''democratic, not  autocratic.  (Special to the Mao,!)  London, , Aug.  30.���������Diplomatic circles in   London  appear   to be'satisfied  that  Russia   either   sent   ihe^circular  notes   to   the,   powers , proposing the  opening of peace negotiations or reach-,  ed   an    agreement   with   the   United  States in; regard   to the basis on which  the government, at   Washington^.shall -  take ihe initiative action on' the ground  that thd  United  States .has no entanglements like Manchuria' calculated,' Io  arouse r the  suspicions of" ,tlie'powers. '  'Nothing however seems   to be known'  at.the. legations in London except that  It is a truism 'of  political' economy    Russia is anxious to'end the prevailing  that ypu cannot have an elective body  superior in intelligence to the electorate. This is true of all forms of government���������"municipal, provincial or .federal���������under pur democratic British  system. Any. other principle is  foreign to our institutions, and should  Only find a place in'despoLisms which  govern by what they erroneously call  divine right.    Vox populi, vox Dei.  The personnel .of the city council do  not control the majority of shares  ���������(assessed valuation) in this"corporation  and therefore should give .their fellow  partners (the citizens) a voice in the  affairs of the company on important  questions which may arise in the interim between the annual.) elections.  They, may occupy the place of a directorate but with this difference, they do  not .control a majority,of the stock,  conditions as speedily as possible.  ig Storm at Mafeking.  Mail.)  ' Band Concert.  - Much speculation has been indulged  in duiing'the past couple of months as  to why the baud did not treat the citizens to a little, music occasionally, but  now it seems they have, awakened  from their .slumber und on'Monday  evening will 'render a few selections  from the band stand, commend.<g at  7 o'clock. That their efforts will be.  appreciated by our citizens goes without saying.

My ambition is to make'  of this broad Dominion  of ours  a nation which shall be heard of in future  a������res.   When, the soldiers of Canada  \n>re called upon to fight'for the Queen  in a far distant land they showed   that  the blood which flowed iu the veins of  their ancestors, and was spilled on the  'battlefield,0  had    not    degenerated'."  {G'U'Sil (-.heeling.)

The  deceased was shown to have been a  tyrannical superior. Lewis defended  Williams on the ground that llie superintendent, though a man in form, was  a boast in character; that it was the  indirect order of God some man should  kili him; that Williams simply performed a duty to society.0' An acquittal  followed, to the utter consternation of  the county, the jury going to the extent of inquiring 'if there was no way  in which Williams could be iiidenmi-,  a half he  Lady   L-uirior.   which   was  I he 't'irial j  function of the" .v-as-on.

' Cut it must' be admitted of the two  Storrow's life had been much the more  'innocent,   and   his   affair -with   Miss  Madge Marbury  mhrlit  have resulted  in matrimony ere tills were it not for  the1 frequency of their petty quarrels,  none of which might ever have occur-*"  red if fhp^'. had not had so. much idle  time to quarrel ia.    . '    .  'The excitomont of fhesp little Mil's  had begun to pall upon him, and whop.  tlio last one occurred he decided (hat.  In- would stay in  towi)  \ylfop  Madge  went away.'  In fact, he was hard up  ror a new sensation.

But the butter-  fiios bad Mod to shore and lnountai.u,  leaving Madison avenue to console itself uiii'il iholr" relurp. Miss Madge  Marbury had gone to Bar Harbor.,'  "Goodby;-Mr. Storrow," she had said  to him just before th.cy parted. ."I  hope you'll find somp romance in the  city to compensate you for your self  imposed and solitary martyrdom."    '  These words came buck to him now;  and the recollection jnado him' feel  more than ever resolved lo find his romance during his summer in town. He  would not have Madge Marbury chaff  him on her return.  Ralph''Ralston thoroughly disagreed  with Sam Storrow as to the relative  charms of cily and seaside in summer.  This was natural, for the .two men had  never agreed upon any question since  the day they first met, and neither bore  much love toward the other.  So a few days after the mooting with  Storrow Ralston was in the vortex of  liar lfiirbor's gay life, troubling himself vovy Iii Ho about roirianee and con- ���������  li*ntcwitli agreeable realities.  There was no more agreeable, reality  than his present proximity lo Miss  Madge Marbury on the veranda of a  ooitag'e that nestled picturesquely up  among the [lines.  They wero enjoying the beauty of  tlie cool Maine night. The ififeiiso blue  of lire boavens gave that suggestion of  illimitable va.slno.ss which, though the  suggestion may be always there, is  only borne in on us under the spell of  certain moods; the song of the pines  kept time with (he more distant music  of the Incoming 'tide, and the breeze  came laden with a mingled fragrance  of balsa in' and odor of ocean brine.  ��������� "Can you imagine, Miss Marbury. a  more fantastic notion than his slaying  In town In search of romance when he  might he hf-reV"  Ralston   had   been oxpnfiaUng upon,  the cccfMitricitios of Sam Storrow.

The waltz died away on the summer  air,'mid the murmur of voices became  louder, interspersed with the popping  of corks and the sound of ice against  thin'glass.  ' Jack's gaze returned to the-scene before biin. and it  was at this moment  that he caught sighi of Edith seated at  '  a table a few feet from lili'n.  He had not seen her since they part-  ��������� ed as  friends a   .-var before;  and  be  smiled to think that he should be able  to look at her now with so little per-<  tn'rhation.  He did not believe she knew,'  that   Ik   was  there.    At  any  rate she  gave no sign of having seen him. and j  .lack'watched her at intervals as the  ti'-uro.'- between th-fin swayed.  Apparer.lly she v."as well and happy.  Their bricf'lovo affair had passed over  ihe surface of her life and left no ripple! Jack looked'at her critically, noting her beatitv and the taste displayed  *- '  ' in her atliro.    lie always had -idiii--!c-J  .  tier'dainty way of dressing, and as.Tor  Iier beauty, that was undeniable.    It  Impressed him no less vividly how than  it had  in those other days when he  'adored her.  Suddenly,  without any premonitory  'tuning  of  instruments,  the orchestra  ..broke into a,catchy air that brimmed  .over with contagions jollity and sent a  ripple of merriment  running through  the audience.     '     ���������  A queer ripple'came.over Jack's, face  as he smiled with the others. That little melody ,.was full of memories for  liinj. 'No matter how "completely a  thing pf ,lhe past his lov.e for Edith  miglii be, that'tunc always must brin^  her to liis'in ind.  Thore was nothing sentimental about  ' it. It was loo frankly gay for that, but  it had nevertheless woven itself inextricably through all their courtship. It  began wilh- their tJirst" quarrel, an assumption of authority on his part, unwarrantable as'he looked at it now,  and a Haunting of pride on"hers.      ?  The, next evening they had met in a  ��������� box a't the theater and had avoided  pitch otlier's-'oyes pnt'l, the orchestra  Struck up tiiat air. which by its infec-  linu,s gayiM.v had dispelled their ill humor nnd caused them to look at one an-  j>1hur aud smile.   After that they never  "   heard it 'that  their eyes did not meet  "with a look'of understanding.   It bad  ended many quarrels for them.  "When you can hear that air played  without meeting my eyes. I shall know  that you no longer love me.!' Jack once,  bin! said to Edith Hair iu jest.  The. melody in question, chancing to'  strike the keynote of public favor, became popular, and they heard it every-'  where. Sometimes in a pretty attempt  at dolinuco Edith.resolutely would keep  her eyes-averted and refuse-to look at  her lover, but she never could'carry.  |icr. willfulness to the v\\i] of the tune.  Always before the. music, stopped her  eyes would meet his gaze:  *     And this was what the orchestra was  ,   playing now. and he and she were sitting only a few feet apart, with their  love fo/each other quite dead.   It was  an odd coincidence. Jack thought, sinil-'  ing.   How had that old tune, which be-  .. longed to a past summer, come to find  a place among the popular airs of tlio  present one? There seemed to be some  invisible link that connected them-her  and him and that ,fa'ueif.uUsilly jig.  Well, there .would be no love message  flashed between them this time.  Jack' told himself this with no emotion, and his calmness made him realize bow completely a thing of the past  his love was. He glanced over to where  she sat. The crowd had thinned out,  and be could sec her plainly now.  If the music stirred memories In  Edith, the fact did not show in her  face. Her eyes were lowered, but her  lips smiled as she listened to what her  companion was saying. ������  ������ Suddenly she raised her head and  met Jack's gaze. Whether she had  seen him before lie did not know, but  as she looked her smile faded, and for  ' il few seconds the two regarded each  olher steadily,-gravely.  Then just as the music stopped something in the mail's f.-lce brought tlie  girl's smile back again, not to her lips  this lime, but in her eyes, and Jack  knew that she had not forgotten. He  knew. loo. I ha t his pretense a l not caring had been a farce aud that he loved  her still.  It was'as a man in a dream that he  saw Edith rise and move toward the  exit, followed by her escort. Jack also  rose, nnd in the, confusion, as a crowd  tilled lire elevator, he managed to speak  to her.  "When can I see you?" he asked.  "Tomorrow." she answered  without  looking at him.  The elevator slopped  and 'hey wore  <   i, No Mystery About rolitlcs.  Tliere is nothing peculiar or mysterious about politics or international relations, says Henry D. Sedgwick, Jr., in  Tlie Atlantic. When two or three men  live within hail of one another, political relations begin. Politics begin  when men realize that'oilier men are  forces to be considered. Men meet,  how: each drives his wagon to the  right; one sells, another- buys; they,  fence their acres in. . They 'meet together to chop flown a tree, to mend the  road, to regulate county mailers with  tiieuext community.  Whether lliey like it or not. politics  have begun: ethical relations have be-  g-t'.'.i; religion has come in. .lie it fear,  philosophy, instinct.or habit, every normal man is conscious of this religious  element. .Men cannot separate politics  from ethics nor' cihicsc-froni religion:  they are threefold, yet one and indivisible.' Froiii that union springs ihe normal law.'  Ilightly to understand that power is  the chief problem of life, and mankind  has long been busy at the task: but the  immediate matter for men is to understand that what is true of two men1 and  three 'gathered together Is true of tens  of millions. Are men to recognize,this-  power which acts on the individual and  on society only when the company ,is  small and they can see the whites of  each other's eyes? The,, duty of the  state is to recognize the scientific truth  of the .universality and persistence of  this power aud to put it to use in state  affairs.  Qnlte Natnrnl.

Oh, I just know It  must be a thrilling story.

Thatseems much more manly,  even if the victor in the fray does receive a wound or two. than to just be  laid low or to lay th'e enemy low by  a bullet that cannot be seen. There is  no bravery in shooting a man, but  there is something .knightly in meeting  another face id face with a sword.

There isn't much bravery In  shooting a fellow,'and there Is something knightly about standing up aud  thrusting, and parrying with a blade.  But I got this wound while acting as  an innocent bystander at a Chicago  strike riot. It was a brick."���������Chicago  Times-Herald.  ^.Tt-2--  4* Si  Tlie Soldier nnil Ills Heart.  Very few soldiers who have seen  much service escape what,' is called  battle heart.  The' ordinary state of the heart in  healthy people is one of Irritability,  but in tlie'soldier of five or six years'  service the irritability is so great" that  it constantly affects Jiis,temper.  The soldier wears such tight clothing  that his heart has not room to beat  freely, aud the perpetual struggle' to  do its work .under difllculties injures  It. The soldiers' trousers nre tight nt  the waist. His coat Is buttoned rta  tightly as possible and very often be  squeezes himself with a belt.  Then When ou the march his chest  is compressed by the weight of hia  knapsack, canteen, great coat md  heavy cartridge belt.  If you watch a company of soldiers  when they are doing a long march,  you will observe that most of them  have Hushed faces, red cars, red noses,  swollen" necks-showing that the heart  is greatly overaxed. Some, on the  other baud, are pale, which proves that  their hearts are cot equal to the "work  thrown on them.  When, after o very long march, the  men have to deploy into fighting order,  and perhaps rush a hill, a very large  number break down altogether. Their  overstrained hearts never become  really strong and healthy ngain.-  Auswers.
