It is the duty of the/Lieutenant-Gbvernor to promptly.dissolve'the.legislature and submit  yto theelectors with as little delay as'possible the question which has been raised.

The newly elected independent labor  member from "Winnipeg (Mr. Puttee)  is already getting down to work, and  in a well delivered maiden speech the  other afternoon^ introduced a bill to  amend the Dominion election act. The  amendment he proposes would extend  the hour- of polling until 8 o'clock in  the evening in large ce^itr-ps of population, and substitute standard time for  solar time. Me also proposes to abolish  the Pmooher ballot, and  substitute a  simpler form of voting paper pracf ically  ide.Dtic-������l with that xisra in provincial i Mr. Pnttos th? ������Mt  elections, a reform which tlie Gov<"ii>  merit had already decided upon.

Puttee, who point"d  out th.it nearly 800 ulecteir.-* techuically  spoilt their ballots in the recent "Win-  nipeg bye-election owing to the diHVr-  ence in the Federal ballot introduced  by the late administration, and the  ballot which had been us-ed at tiie provincial elections only a few v.-i-'k*,  before.

FRIDAY, MARCH, 0,   1000.  Tun remark is l-oatd-On every hand  that' tho political situation is a very  complex, one. This is, we believe, a  'miV.*ake. .fristeaei. tire .issue* is tire  clearest over faced by any electorate.  Joseph Martin, by tlie grace of the  jie-ule.nant-governor, is premier of the  province,, and every 0 citizen should  oarnc-tly consider his duty tei British  Columbia. Mr. Martin seeks to intro  . duce; the bitterest controversial' elements into the'coining contest, and by  a party cry as well will attempt' to  further- confuse the electors. Tn ,this  he will 1^: aided by some few conservatives .who, disregarding the advice  of their leaders, will unwittingly lend  themselves to his schemes by insisting  that the, party cry shall be taken up.  This "will, however, have but little  ^effect.    The issue is, too clear..   Martin  , c %  stands for'all that is unstable and disturbing in government, and. all _who  have- the best interests of the province  at heart should   unite in  securing his  ��������� d of eat.  ,   ���������   .        ��������������� -���������  ���������   Ir is-said that  the  local  self-styled  ������ ��������� ...   A  conservatives persist in their intention  to run a straight conservative in the  coming.provincial contest.,' Tliey have  not vet given over their intention to  have an absentee candidate. Chas.  "Wilson, of Vancouver, will be. their  standard, and will .surely lead them to  defeat. The electors of this oonslitu  ency ha\e no u.'-ft fcr partyism or for  absentee members, and a local man  will he found who will be satisfactory  to all classes and factions to represent  them in the , next house. "Who this  man will be is not known as yet, but  tho oeople in a convention called for  the pur-pose of canvassing the merits of  ' the several local men well fitted fur the.  position,,will choose their own candidate, a man well posted on the needs  nf \he district as -veil,as those of the  'province.  The Mail heartily endorses the pro-  po������*itinii   to   organize a British Columbia pi ess association.       There are now  some, fifty publications in.tbe province  ���������mid it is time tb.it the   writers of   the  ��������� ���������rnvince became, acquainted with each  , nt her.      They  are all good fellows but  '   ilic; cio not know it, and if they could  nn.'!-t annually for a few day; wh would  preacher pays the preacher the least;  the man who runs down his town does  the least to build it up : the man who  does not support his home paper,-does  the least to'make the paper a success.  He,says the town is no good and'that  it is dead. ; But ho is mistaken���������he is  the corpse."  United Labor Platform.  The following platform has been endorsed by a majority of the labor  organizations of the province and is  now being considered by ,,the balance  of the unions. It is,'possible that in  some constituencies candidates for Un*  lt-gr'slature may be nominated tostanel  on this platform:  1. We demand of the provincial legislature the enforcement of the eight  hour' law, and its application to rill  branches of manual labor.  2..Legal recognition by incorporation of labor unions and tire- intention  to them'of the same-, rights enjoyed l>y  other corporate bodies.    ���������   .,  3. To provide foradjustmunt of wage  disputes by arbitration on plans simi!--,r  to that now in force   in   Ne-w Zealand.  ���������I. To provide for settlement of public  questions by' direct vote under the  initiative and refe'rendum. '  . 5. Government euvuership of all railway, telegraph and telephone lines to  be cotu-tructed, and the ac'iuiring of  those'already in use as soon as practical; and to prevent^extortion as'far as  possible by the contiol of all railway,  telegraph and telephone lines for public  use and to h'x a reasonable maximum  rate'which they may charge of service.  ' 6. An act to prevent employment of  Chinese in any, mines, factories,' or  public works within the province.,  7. An ��������� act to .provide safeguards' to  lift-' and health, and ��������� tn provide an  efficient urine inspection system to  procure these results.   ' '       ,  J 8. An act to establish county or' local  government throughout the province;  all officers of such, both judicial and  executive, to be elected by the popular  vote of their respective localities.

R. ROSE.  i'!t  ^j<fii!s\������4V'\}V'bv*yiv'\:*vv,v'iw*v  "The well built young raan who stood' at  the    hotel  , entrance    was    evidently    a  stranger in the city:    He  looked about  hi in -with a strong suggestion of curiosity.   'Anon he stared upward at the un-,  . vronted    mingling   of   hi'noke   and   skyscrapers, o  This observant young man's name -was  -  .Tack   Holbrook.    Ke- -ivaa  a  New  Bng-  Ircndei", a Harvard man, a mining engi--  noor, and this was his first visit west of  Albany'.    He,had come to Cleveland  at'  'the .earnest and oft repeated invitation of  liis college  mate  Mid   very  dear friend, '  Tom   I'lyrnpton,   and ' lie  had   in-rived  a  ��������� day, ahead  of time.    He  had  meant to  Btopat Buffalo'for a few hours', confer-  <c ence with a mining expert, but ou the  train had received a telegram from him  stating that he had suddenly been called  to Toronto in connection with an important legal case^ and 'askryg him to deter'  . his, Buffalo visit. . So Jack had come  .   straight-'through  tb  Cleveland,  aud, -be-  ��������� ing of a slightly diffident disposition, had  ,   gone to a hotel instead, of proceeding at  once to his" friend's home. At tbe hotel  he had telephoned and asked for his'  friend, "but the servant who answered  his call stated that Mr.'Tom hud gone'  to Akron, but would return late; in the  afternoon. , Thereupon he ,had spelled  out his name for,the domestic aud added  the name of the hotel,. the maid promising tovjdeliver both name and address to  Tom as soon as he returned.  Then'Jack strolled out'in' front of the  big hostelry nnd watched the tide of buy  nianily  stream by.   .The. tide" presented  some "new types to Jack's observant-eyes  und, the time slipped away rapidly as, he  watched   them.      Presently   he   became  award that a smartly dressed young woman -was  regarding him  with  some  de- ���������  grce  of  intentness.     She  was  a "pretty  , girl, with laughing black eyes, and those  eyes' were fixed upon Jack with a quizzi- ,  cal'interest.    She passed  him hud then,  came   back.     As   she   neared   him   she  [' swung in a little closer.  I������   ' . ,  -'Pardon , me,"   she   said   with   much.,  gravity, ''but am l.niistakcn-Mn.assuming  that you arc a stranger1 in town':".  " Her,'voice was low, and'musical and*  vary pleasant to the car, and,Jack was,  still more lirmly convinced of her extreme degree of prettiness. Both these  "facts firmly impressed themselves upon  ' his mind, although he was quite stunned  for the  moment by the unexpected   en-  i) counter.   .  "1   am   a   stranger  in   this   particular  '   city," he managed to reply, "but not en-  lirolv a stranger,to city ways."  "It is evident," said the young woman, *  with" an  increase  of gravity,  "that you  read the newspapers."  "It is a habit that I have never attempted to conceal," said Jack. '���������  There was a moment's silence.  The young woman" had, as it were,  mesmerized Jack into an unconscious endeavor to keep step with hoi- as she  slowlv moved toward thc avenue.  "You look." she said, "like an honest  ���������  young man." '  "Honesty, like . beauty.", commented  Jack, "is sometimes but skin deep. Tho  fact is. I am really au accomplished pickpocket. Perhaps you'will kindly notice  the sh'abbv lookiug man'who is apparently absorbed in the jeweler's'window  across tho way'.' That's a -famous de-  '   tective who is dogging my footsteps."  "I "see," said the pretty girl with a  charming smile, "that you are a humorist  as well as a pickpocket. It is a pleasant  recreation and in time I think yon would  shine at it. But* pardon me, Mr. Pickpocket, if I briefly digress. As you are  a stranger lu town you cannot be expected to know anything about our customs. Kindly understand, thou, that I.  am an active member of an organization  of Cleveland women who are banded together for thc purpose of extending tho  hospitalities of our city to all worthy sojourners within its gates. We are ex-  ���������roc-ted to meet strangers_ and impress  them with our city's beauties."  Diffident Jack boldly interrupted hor.  "You have'certainly impre.-seil nie with  one of'them." he said. "I don't think 1  care to see the others."  The   smiling   young  flushed.  "When tlie stranger  young and good looking." she said, "one  of the younger members of the committee on transients is sent to proselyte him.  For, vou see, the prime object of the  committee is to win from him a promise  to become a good Clevelander. 1 might  add that tho scheme is strongly indorsed  by the sojourner committee of our revered chamber of commerce."  "Which reflects great credit on the  chamber's   good , taste,"   said  'Jack   the  diffident. .  Just what he thought of tins remarkable adventure he couid hardly tell. The  girl was certainly delightful, even if her  explanation was a trifle labored. He  would see the adventure through.  "And now for",' luncheon," saiel tho  black eyed committee of one, as she led  him. still wondering, into a well appointed restaurant and ordered a toothsome  light repast. And as they sat facing each  other she drew him out by degrees until  diffident Jack was telling freely about  his recent trip up the Orinoco aud hia  shipwreck on tho Venezuelan coast.  Jack was a keen observe*: aud a clem  woman*, slightly  happens   to   bo  story teller, and his audience of one  somehow drew out the best there was in  him. He noticed that his companion exchanged bows with several of the ladies  and gentlemen who passed in and out of  the dining room, and it struck him that  she must be a young woman of some social'eminence. This impression was further strengthened by the deference .with  .which thc proprietor of the place .bowed  to her as she passed to the cashier's  desk. ��������� '    '  "The committee pays all the bills," sho  had said to Jack', aud he was forced to  rest content. ' "I take it for granted,"  she added to him when they reached the  sidewalk, "that you have no, other eu-  ,gagement for the afternoon':"  "It is your privilege to tako anything  you please for granted," said the gallant  Jack.  "Then, as it is Wednesday afternoon,  we will .attend the matinee .at the opera  house," 'said the black eyed committee.  "1 have the seats," she' quickly added,  and thus headed off any move Jack  might have made toward the box oflice.  The play was a pretty comedy, a-newly imported London success, and Jack  enjoyed its wit and raillery ,to the utmost. No doubt his enjoyment ��������� was  much vincreased by the presence���������of his  charming ���������and sympathetic' companion.  She smiled over all the good things that  he did, catching the witty points as fast  as they were uttered, and her merry,'  comments were quite as good as the dia-  ' lo,rUC.' '*  ', And Jack felt that he* couldn't be too'  grateful to hor for not innisting upon the  right���������tc'assume the seat next the aisle.'  It was during the intermission preceding the last act that the committee suddenly said:  "I declare if the Hungerfords aren't  coming over to' speak to us!" ���������   ���������  "Yes,'yes;'here they"come., See here;  ,we must pretend that we are old  friends." '       -    .,  "All right," said Jack. "What's your  name?"  "Lucile.    And yours?" ��������� ,.  "Jack." ,.' -    '       .    '*  And then the Hungerfords were at  hand. They smilingly greeted' Jack's  committee ' and, looked inquiringly at  Jack. Thero were two vacant seats in  the row ahead, and these' the Hungerfords took. ��������� Then Jack's committee  caught a'peculiar "gleam in, pretty Mrs.  Huriger'ford's eye.  ��������� "Oh, excuse me!" she murmured., "I  forgot that you had been away5. You  haven't met Jack, have you? Jack, this  is Mr.' and Mrs. Bob Hungcrford."  ' "Oh, yes;" said Jack the diffident as he  smiled and bowed, "I really feel as if 1  ought to know you.' Lucile .mentioned  your .names several; times when she  wrote. Are congratulations a little late?"  "Rather," said the male ��������� Hungerford,  "the happy event ��������� took place some six  months ago."'- ������ '  u "I think," said Jack, without a trace  of embarrassment, "that your happy  faces made me forget that you were not'  still in the  first quarter of .'the  honey:  ������> '���������  moon.  "That's very nice," said pretty Mrs.  Hungerford, -with a little nod of thanks.,  Then she looked at Lucile, and,if ever  a woman's glance asked "Is this-the favored youth?" little Mrs. Hungerford's  asked it at that moment.  "Stop here long?" inquired the male  Hungerford.  "Only through the last act," replied  Jack.  "I mean in Cleveland."  . "I. don't know.'   I'm in the hands of  the committee."  Tall Bob Hungerford looked , a little  astonished at the, reply, and Lucile  laughed.  "That's the latest eastern slang," she  said. "Jack is an adept at slang. It  .isn't so bad'either, is it���������'in the bands  of the committee?' ",  And just then thc curtain went up.  When Jack and his committee filed out  of tlio house, Lucile suddenly giggled.  "Those stupid Hungerfords gave me a  bad five minutes," she said, "but' 1  rather think I sent them away eating  their hearts out with curiosity."  "I .wonder why you didn't tell thorn all  about tlio committee and its noble work,"  said honest Jack.  But the committee only giggled.  "How would you like to'ride behind a  good horse?" she inquired a moment later.  * "Why net?" quoth reckless Jack..  Ancl. lo! as if by magic, a-tall dogcart  drawn by a mettlesome black horse, appeared beside them, a drab coated driver  stepped out aud handed the reins to the  young woman, and a moment later she  and .lack were speeding away toward the  suburbs. It was a most delightful 40  minutes' ride, and then the tall cart was  suddenly drawn up in front of a handsome residence as a young man came  running clown thc steps..  It was Tom.  "Jack!" he cried as he gripped an outstretched hand. Then he added, ,"I see  Tricksy found you all right."  "Tricksy!" gasped Jack.  Then he remembered that Tom had occasionally mentioned a sister, and somehow he had formed the impression that  she was a fence climbing hoiden in clipped curls and extremely short skirts���������  just a scatter brained, romping child.  And this lovely girl was tho real Tricksy.  What a blooming idiot he had been not to  guess it before!  "No wonder she found you." continued  Tom. "She's stolen all my photos of you  and stuck them up all over her room-  Jack in football togs over the mantel,  Jack starting for the Orinoco on the  dresser. Jack"���������  "Tom," cried the' blushing Lucile,  "you're horrid!" Then she turned to  Jack. ,   q,  "Tho committee on reception w,ill take  a brief recess," she laughed.  "Make it very brief," said diffident  Jack.  "What fresh nonsense has Lucile been  up to?" cried puzzled Tom.  But Jack only clmckled. ��������� Cleveland  Plain Dealer^.   _ ./..  ������ft-S^'^'"������3'SS-r'"'-s'^^  I ' Tnfi���������Massrl  809 PACIFIC LM'"  ' -America's fiMt;'  Trans-GontineiLfal Route  .  .

This  crossing can be put in'for about $600,  while the same kind of a csossing on  Douglas street would cost three times  this sum1.
