Scott, of the law firm of White!  G-willam &��������� Scott, was united in mar-'  n'age to Miss Margaret Estella Brown,  the ceremony being performed by Rev.1  Dr.Paget, at fet.'Peter's Chui'ch. , Previous announcement having been made,  the friends of the. young couple gathered at the church long before-the  appointed hour, and by the time the  bridal party arrived the church, was  crowded to the doors- with those  anxious to witn'ess the ceremony.  ,Afc' 2:30 o'clock the groom supported  by Mr.-'R. H. Mayne 'took ��������� up his  position, in front- oft tha u'ltar.' :A ft;'iv  minutes later ; Mrs. Brown and Mr.1  tFrank Brown entered the church followed by Miss May Bourne as min'd of  honor. Last of ail enter.ed thebr-ide  clinging,-to the arm of Mr/H. .A.  Brown. 'The bride looked charmingih  a handsome dress of white duchess  satin with veil and trimmings of-silk  chiffon, and carrying a bouquet of  roses and sniilax. The maid of honor  was becomingly dressed in pink silk,'  with white picture hat, and trimmings'  of white silk chiffon.  After the couple had been declared  man and wife according to the ritual of  the English church the party returned  to the family residence to await the-  arrival of' the west bound train- on'  which the bride and groom left for the  coast where they " will spend their  honeymoon visiting the different  cities. ��������� ,_  Amongst the bride's present, which.-  were numerous, might be mentioned  the*'presentation from the groom,  being a sunburst, of pearls and emer-,  aids: a handsome bracelet^'presented  by the. groom's mother, and a table  cover the gift of Mrs. Brown's god  mother, Mrs. Glover, of Hamilton,  Out., mother of the eminent actor R.  G.'KnowIcs.  Death of Wm. Somerville.  Kews.has just been received of the  death ah White Horse of "Billy"  Somerville who left T?evcls(,oke lust  spring for the Atlin country. Mr.  Somerville is well known here, having  been foi mcrly omploj ed as a C. P. R.  bridge carpenter. He was in charge  of (lie B. A. C.'s store house at some  copper pi operties held by the corporal ion near White Horse, and the day  before Christmas went into White  Horse with a dog team. On his return  it is supposed that he slipped off the.  sled and the team ran away. 'Three  weeks later his body was found on the  trail, ne having frozen to death. His  many friends here will be sorry to  learn of his decease.  There is an opportunity at present  for ' some one of our good, reliable,  pushing citizen-? lo secure the agency  of the Imperial Life Assurance "Company, by applying to the Provincial  Manager, J, \V. W. Stewart afc V������n-  courpf,  Ottawa, Feb'.' 10.���������The Parliamentai y  sf-ssion   is once more  under, way and  the debate on the address has been got  tid of   with a celerity' which is in delightful contrast to the dreary wa>..te,of  four weeks occupied  in  the same performance last year.    In addition to the  mover and  seconder there  were only  two   speakers   on either side and two'  sessions of the house was'aII the'time  heeded to dispose of the matter.   Both  gentlemen  who  were entrusted' with  the  task   of  starting   the debate, Mr.  Isaac   Gould!  the   late speaker's /successor in West'Ontai-io, and Mr.'Victor  [ 1    w'  Geoffiiotitthe new  member for Oham-  blev Verchercs,  acquitted   themselves  admirably, speaking briefly, eloqu'ently  and to the.point. ,  Then following'ihe  usual procedure', Sir Charles Topper as  leader-of   the  Opposition, opened the  right proper but instead of the oetho-  dox  general arraignment of <-thVgovernment,   its  policv   and   everything  connected'therewith, the worthy baronet confined  himself entirely to the  discussion of the contingents, leaving,  as lie observed, other mattersto a more  convenient season. , -       '  , cl    .. ' ,  fTHK SAME OLD STORY.        '     , "  There was .little new in his lem'arks.  We have heard it all  before in various  forms.ln the fifty-six-speeches which he  boasts of having delivered' throughout  the1 west.     Summed up in few words ,  his criticism of the government was    '  that   it had  been  too slow,  in taking  '  action in the'first place, and then having decided  that something, must be-"  .clone/it_did ������������������nofc-d'-Hrle: to  r!o nearly  enough.     He approved of what had  been done as far as i.t went, but did not   ���������  approve of the manner of doing it.    In*  the   course   of  a   three'hours speech,  vigorous as ever in its  declamation Sir  Charles   elaborated   his  oft-reiterated  and  familiar indictment; and it,ftociic  exactly one-third of that time for the    '  Premier to so effectively demolish that  indictment the, opposition declinedto  continue the discussion until they had  been able  to sleep over it and recover,  at least in some degree, their equinim-  ity.      ' - s  Dealing  first with   the charge that, ������  the government had been too slow, Sir ���������  Wilfrid pointedly   remarked  that he  could   not   understand    how   anyone ' ..  could find fault with  them for giving  the   most      careful   ���������   thought     and  consideration to a questionavhich" was  unique in  tho experience of   Canada  and of the most 'vital importance constitutionally.  LTiVDEIlRKSl'OXSIULE GOVERNMENT.  Sir Charles had charged that the,  government'-had not moved until the  unmistakable expression of public  opinion warranted' them in doing so!  "Will the honorable gentleman say;"  asked, the Premier, " that we ought to  have done otherwise? Does he contend  that we would have been justified in  spending large sums, of money for  which no provision whatever had been  mad.* by parliament, without the most  unmistakable demand by tin* people  thai, this should be done? If in; doe-., it  only'shows bow incongruous are his  ideas of responsible government. Ours "  is a government by the people, and w������  haye iio power to act in any matter '  save by the authority of the people,  either expressed in parliament, or by  the unmistakable voice of public  opinion."  The. comparison which the opposition  leader had made between the action of  the Australian colonies and that of our  government ,vas disposed of effectually by pointing out the fact that parliament was sitting in the antipodean  colonies at the time, whereas our parliament had recently adjourned without in any way anticipating the  necessity for action. When however  there could no longer be ���������,,:;,- doubt  that the war wa-> inevitable 00 time,  was lost and wilhin three weeks.- of th������  publishing of  President.

Tt was distinctly  pointed out last summer by those who  have, for years freighted on the river  wiih small boats that at such seasons  as the river could be navigated above  the canyon there would be but-little  or no' dii'lL-ulty' in making through  trips from Reveistoke, thus doing away  , with "the necetisity of a wagon , road.  Now, in view of these facts, and there,  being no assurance of the ,road being  built,' Mr. Kellie writes saying that  the party with whom he has been .corresponding in re,gaid to the, placing of  a boat 011 the river is now arranging  for tho pnreh.-.se of engines and ex-'  peels to l>e in Reveistoke about the  cud of March or ilisl.'o. Apiil to con  struct his boat.' This looks as 'if the  great dilHculty which has so, long retarded   the   development   of   the   Bi"  S| '  Bond district is at last to be overcome,  and now that, a move has been made  in this direction it should meet' with  ihe approval and encouragement of  all.    .

At Albert Canyon, the genial  agent,Mr..Edwards.and his fi'iends'hnd  prepared'for our coming, .photogiviphs  were taken, and each member was presented with a very, liberal amount'of  tobacco and cigars, and with much  wisdom and fur el bought, Mr.-Edwards  limiting no doubt that medical attendance would be scat re. provided. 11s with  potions labelled " Doctor'.-" Special,"  thus providing both doctor and uiedi-  ' cine in one.,t At every station along  'fcthe. line we were.hailed with cheers, to  all of which we-responded in a truly  western and lusty f manner, with; the  'result that ,to-day we are all very  boat-so, a net1 if- to be judged' by our  voices, the verdict would be that, we  ��������� were all suffering from a severe attack  of pneumonia.'

Daniel Moss, one of General) Phil Sheridan's' scouts in the civil war, was bom  on Sept. 1G, 1S24, in  Shenandoah coun-  ��������� ty, Va.'   He was a miller by trade and  worked in a mill until, the latter part of  1SG1, when he became a scout in the Un-  ;.   ion' army.    He was' iii uo regular battle.  , ,   His -work was to discover whore the o'ne-  .   my   was "and  in   what  minibers.    Sometimes'he varied this by leading parties to  capture sraal) detached bodies of the enemy.    Of course he was often in peril.  He was on one occasion sitting by -the-  roadside when  four Confederate soldiers  suddenly; rode   up." recognized  'iiini   and  B.iid: "Hello:  What are you doing here?"  He had  the presence of mind  to reply,  "Waiting for the balance of our men to,  . come up.".   There were no men ro come'  ' up.  but'there was a man  plowing in a  field  near by. anil just at' that moment  the heads of his horses appeared over the  hiil. ' The Confederates thought the Union   troops   were,, coming,   turned   tlieir  ���������horses, and away they ,went.������  He was taken prisoner twice.   The lirst  Mime   the ^Confederates   kept   him   about  four days,' ami then he profited by an opportunity to walk off.    He had n������t' gone  far when he encountered 300 Confeder-'  ate cavalry.  ,He-was dressed in a Confederate uniform; they did not'know him,  end so lie escaped,   lie lived at, that time  . about   four; miles  from   Winchester and  ���������-had been home but a few" days when he  was captured the second time.    He did  i not  know .there  were auy Confederates  nbout.,'ns the Union forces held Wiuches-  ;_ ter.    A squad'of Confederates turned up  'there  about  midnight  and   took  him  to  ;IIarrishurg jail. ' " '  There he remained' about seven weeks.  .with six Confederate deserters.'   He pro-  " posed  to'them to got out of there."  Ho  ��������� found* they, "were willing, and one day ho  slipped a knife into his pocket at moal-  \timo.  iOne of his,schoolmates, hearing of  , his being .in jail, came to see him.    His  'schoolmate was a Con'fcclcrate lieutenant.  JMoss' asked  this man to get him'a tile.  ' The lieutenant replied that ho^would do  so on'Ihe condition that if the Yankees  't^ver got him into prison he CMoss) would  .get   him  out.     Moss' promised." and   the  file was so'iit to him in a plug of tobacco.'  Moss made a saw out of the knife he had  kiadfin'h.v filing teeth in, the back.    With  this he,sawed-off the iron bars of the jail  , windows.     The   prisoners    danced , and  sang to drown tho uoise of sawing and  filing.    This'provoked the,, jailor, 'and  so-  they were'handcuffed and hobbled  with  ball and chain and at last were fastened  to staples in tl)e floor. ��������� Meanwhile Moss  Amusements of Fi-eiicliiTonieii.  It would, be hard to tell how Frenchwomen   amuse  themselves,   writes' 'John  Strange Winter.   Personally I have never heard auy amateur lausic iu  France  that   was   worthy   of   ineuiion,   but   all  Frenchwomen   dance   exquisitely,   some  of ,them   swim   very   well   and   most  of  them love some form or other of gambling.    I   have  never  yet   heard  of.any  real   Frenchwomen,   at  least   outside  of  the artistic class, who took auy form of  exercise   from   choice,    unless (vene   cau  count a game of very  mild croquet, or  still rnoi'c mild tennis, in which she never attempts tb take a ball unless it actually comes* begging to  be taken,  which  does  not often   happen.

She  is always ready to go'to a party, a race  meeting,).:! theater, a concert or a charity  function   of  any   description.    .Moreover,  she is ahvnys ready to go to ehurch'aiHi  will   undertake   almost   auy   amount' oi  church   work,   such  as  the care of ,so:ne  particular chapel or altar.    She is altogether unlike her English sister, with her  golf clubs,  her bicycle,  her shootim; and  her  fishing,' her   walking stick   and   her  cigarettes.'"

She   never,   however;   gave  much attention either to dress or to consideration of, feminine elegance'.   Indeed,  she was'perhaps in her attire one of the  most dowdy women in London, and when  Lord and Lady Salisbury were contemp-  uously turned awayfromrJthe doors of the  Casino at Monte Carlo by the gatekeepers, who took exception to the more than  'shabby  attire <of. the  party,  it   was uot  alone in consequence of the shocking hat  of the British premier, but also by reason of the odd cut and color of the'dress  of the maVchioness and the dinginess of  her bonnet and extraordinary blue veil.  ,. Lady   Salisbury's   gowns   during   the  last 20 years of her life were ahvays'of  a'sort of dark   blue, cloth,   which   were  neither a.credit to her dressmaker nor to  her .maid   and > which   conveyed, to   the  public the,impression  that  she had  but  one single dress.���������Philadelphia Press.

In buying an oriental rug one can distinguish between the imitation and genuine not only by the color and pattern,  which may he copied^ but by a careful  examination to sec if each stitch is knotted. If the stitch is knotted and it is  impossible to pull it out. the rug is genuine Turkish, whether the warp is cotton  or wool, but if one can pull the stitch  out it is imitation, no matter bow closely  color and pattern follow the original.  The mariner of testing the quality of the  rug is as follows: A live coal is dropped'  on the rug and allowed to burn a little.  When it is removed, a yellowish mark-  will be left. If this can be brushed off  with the lingers, leaving the original colors unaltered, it is n sure proof of the  genuineness of the rug.  ��������� Steamers call at principal landings  in  both  directions, and at other points .when signalled.

Referring to the charge that be bad
.been inconsistent in, having declared
in an interview in the Toronto Globe,
that the government had no power to
act without {uilhoriljy and then ,so
shortly after, sending out the contingent, the Premier, showed, that there
(was no contradiction or inconsistency
therein ; foi-, be said, when She imperial
authorities intimated the extent of'the
help they would accept, the demands
made -were so moderate that, apart^
from tbe delay that would have been
necessaiy.it would have cost more to
summon parliamt-'tifc to a special .session
than to proceed at once with the mobilization of'tbe contingent.' There was
no denying the fact that in acting as
they bad 'done they weie without the'
law, anil had exceeded their-constitutional powers, and were only 'justified
in the course that they pursued by the
unmistakable expression of the public
will.   ���        '      , .  ,
As to -the criticisms that had been
offered upon the action of the government: in 'declaring-, in the order-in-
council, that, ���' no precedent'' was to be
established by the sending of the first
contingent, the Premier read the order,
lo show that it simply recognized the
indisputable fact that neither from a
constitutional nor a colonial point of
view,"could their action in that matter
be allowed to establish a precedent for
future action. "' We have done this,''
declarert'the Premier amid the cheers
from all parts- of the bouse. " in the
majesty of

ever to do as we consider 'nest under
tlie circumstances that may aris-e. Tbe
