This  gave Revelstoke and the line with the_  great bulk of vtho   riding's population,  20 votes;   points' south 21 votes; Dig  Bend was not, ������iu  it no representative  being   allowed.    ���������J?, J.'Foley, Arrow  Jiead, was' moved to the ���������_ chair.      Tho  only business done was the nomination  of   a   candidate   which   Mr. Taylor of  Trout Lake City   received without op  position..-   ' There   were   no' resolutions  of  endorsation of  the platform, of. tho  party, of  principle  on eight hour'law  or anything else, and' except for.a few  short speeches, remarkable for nothing  but a sneering allusion to this scattered town of Revelstoke by " tho organiser,"  the  proceedings   were   without  interest.    " Mr.  Charles   Wilson,' the'  leader,    was   not    , even     nominated  though   it   has been   generally known  for a long time that ,ifc   was- offered to  him and, it   was said, accepted.    The  Trout Lake   man   had no competitors,  Revelstoke didn't even put a candidate-  up   and   there     was     no . " trouble  brewing"   as     the ' Ferguson   paper  said there would if its man  was  not  nominated.     There    are     legitimate  points .jof  criticism   in    the    calling,  organization and vote distribution'of  the convention and its composition, including as it did, several liberals, could  also be'iidiculedi   Let it. pass for, the  present, however, to  publicly goAinto  them wouldonly create friction in  the  district arid besides  they  will  readily  suggest themselves to the interested  reader.'  , . !    ,  The "party'' candidate, Mr. Taylor,  is personally an estimable young man  ambitious to succeed and this is his  chance.   The'Mail litis no word to say  against him personally, but is earnestly   opposed   to   his candidature as   a  party man, and believes he lias made' a  fatal mistake in seeking public honors  on such grounds.    He thinks differently, however,  and the Mail bespeaks  for him a patient hearing and courteous  consideration of his case in the coming  campaign as lie will have reasons, for  the faith  that is in him.,  There are  other reasons why'Mr. Taylor's eandi-  dalure'should   meet   with   opposition  from the Mail butVthese will appear  in the progress ol the camaaign. ;  Promising Prospect  Of Mining Operations  Cannot Sold  Another Month.

M orris & Steed;  Coursier's Old Stand,  FZROZESTT   ST.  X$#^W*iH"Tf'W^  A Party of,  Politieal Trimmers  The Nelson conservative convention  was regarded with amusement rather  than anything else.   It straddled, the  fence on nearly every question,- especially the ejght-hour law and party line  questions,   and    it    wonld    need   a  descriptive    chart    to    tell   what  is  meant  on    either.     The    eight-hour  law  resolution  ��������� reads:     Moved ' Dr.  -Bowes, seconded Fred  Irvine:   "That  this convention deprecates the existing  disputes between labor and capital and  Fuggests that it will be the function of  tho government to carefully investigate the working of laws dealing with  the industrial conditions, and geneWiI,  regulations botween labor and capital  in the province,  keeping in  vinw the  main object of government!  the pros*  purity of the  count! y  and   tho   well  being of its citizens."   The party line  resolution   runs:   That   the origin of  the liberal-conservative party may be  traced to a crisis in tho history of this  country which necessitated  the union  of the best men of both parties for the  unification and progress  of   the  Dominion of   Canada.   A .serious  crisis  now exists in the province tit present.  The principles of liberal-conservatism  contain the only remedy for one man  government,  sectionalism and undue  influence   of ��������� political    adventurers;  therefore bo it resolved,  that in  the  opinion of meeting forthcoming provincial elections be conducted on party  lirips,   the   liberal-conservative   party  relying not solely upon   party  affiliation in federal politics but also upon  the   brond   principles   of   liberal-conservatism,   which   will    remedy    the  violent abuses of tho ffoveinment In  this province.  Was ever such complete "rot" talked  by a body of sensible men. The eight-  hour resolution may mean anything or  nothing, and the party line motion  '.while deciding on that issue does so  without regard to "party affiliation in  federal politics." This all means, we  must say something and if we can get  labor and liberal suckers to walk into  uu,r pilot' l|iy uiorc (oirjs thoj".

TUESDAY, MARCH, 20. 1800.  Tim   conservatives   of    Revelstoke  riding,  in   common   with   others   in  diileretit'se'ctions of the province, have  in our poor opinion'  done   incalculable  injury to the interests of the   province  in   deciding   i'or'TVhe  introduction   of.  party lines and  selecting   a   candidate  1 to "run" upon'that-issue..   This' province is now facing,a situation of grave  importance'to its. future welfare,  what  ' it needs most-in   this juncture   being  a .strong, staple,' and   progressive   government, and to this consummation ths  'energies'of conservatives   and  liberals  mi������ht ive.ll have been applied. The wei-  fare'of the country is of   more importance than the advantage of a party, and  . in'the present ^state, of  affairs, with a  destructive   demagogue  and- unrepre-,  ' s'ehtative government  in   power,   men  should first be citizens  and   par'tizans  after.   There was no challenge of party  strength thrown do'wii by the liberals,  no conflict of opinion; on .the  contrary/  they stood ready   to  oppose* one   who  trading on their good .name  attempts  ��������� to create division   and   discord. c And  this we. believe is   their   poaitibn   still,  aided by. numerous conservatives   who  cherish individual opinion , and  public  good rather, than   party   cause.    This  is the peoples party ! and its  cause  is  good and well supported.    It stood   to  .win for this province a certain victory  ' for sound and   representative  government with the downfall of Mr. Martin,  but, this  desirable   result   has  hugely  been jeopardized by   the   introduction  of party lines.    A three-cornered   contest throughout   the  country  is   now  rendeted   inevitable   (unless   this' injudicious movement is   recalled) .with  a   three party   legislature as   a   most  likely and probable   result.    There  is  no telling to   what   further  confusion  such a resultniay lead and,   if  parties  are anywhere near equal, it will require  little imaginative stretch   to   conceive  another general election following the  coming one, instead, of,   as   intent   be  the case,   calm    and   steady   progress  under   a'  strong   anti-Martin   government.    There seems no question of .it,  in our minds, that the mr-n responsible  for - introducing   party   at   this   cii-'is  ���������' i i  have tnken an unreasoning and   retro-.  grade step that, must lie rectified by  .the sturdy independent ben.-e of the  rot of the community.  We appeal earnestly to the go< d  5-,en������f! and judgment of the electors in  this constituency to come to the rf-cue  in thi-. cri.Ti'-. We appeal, fir-t, to our  independent consf-rvative ftiends, to  our libera! comrnrjes, and labor coworkers to all unite in M'leoting a man  for whom we can make, common cause  the   interests    of    stability     and  rate the promise and the man must be  considered together. The value of an  I O U, for instance, depends upon the  signature, and it is not different with  a politicians platform. So, when Mr.  Martin lays down a redistribution  plank in" his' political cheap sale  counter, it will not be forgotten by  'the public that but'for his action on  this very subject the' coming election  would be fought on a measure much  more representative of their opinion.  3And, if in this' instance ho sacrificed  public interest to personal ambition or  revenge, why should he no" do it  again. Another plank-'-the discouragement of cheap oriental labor���������is one  he spreads with much ostentatious dis  play before elector1-1. Uut' if In has  forgotten that he did his best to defeat  last session the coal mines regulation  bill, which had'for object, this very  plank he prates of, the p'-oplrf do not,  and vvill remind , him of it at the  proper moment. Conduct they will  tell him is thrt test of ,conviction and  for.all his''fine promises he will be  judged by his fruits. Ho may spread  his wares as cunningly as he likes,- but  they will not tempt 0au intelligent  public to do business.. His is a bankrupt stock, so to speak, filched from  better < hands through ' his sharp  practice, and it will not be long' ere  the shutters are up and the name  erased on the premises, of ' Martin &  Co.,, the company being, of course,  silent partners. ���������  The promises of.an" early spring and  long working season have never been  so ������oodlfor many vears as now. ' The  pity 'tis that the opportunity of -.improvement thus afforded will be lost  through the political deadlock now  prevailing. I'f-Mr. Mar-tin's appeal' to  the people is delayed-as he says it will  it may'be September before appropri-  ations ,can be voted 'for necessary  public works. The remedy;'for the  lieutenant-governor's . action \is said,  properly enough, to lie with the people,  but even that the people are injuriously to their'interests prevented from  doing. u-Thi.s kind of governmental  bluff must stoD. The people everv  where should speak their minds on it.  It, is really the essence of the political  crisis now before the country^yet some  ignore it for ptirfcy. What is, party,  beside ' representative 'government  responsive to a people's will. '-'A  plague o' both your houses" we would  say, but that one only-is blind ���������to its  present duty,, and like our Donny-  brook friend finding no i challenget to  the fight invites one with a request to  step on his trailing coat, as he's just  ���������spoilin for the want of a hatin.  History doesn't say if the gladiator of  the turf got what he was Jooking,, for,  we rather think he did, but we are  sure that it will relate that fact to the  entire .satisfaction of those party conservatives who will not meet the  present situation as it deserves.

At the Odeon theater "Le Depit Aruou-  rent" was being performed as a curtain  rai3er,   and   charming  Sophie .Cherubin,  ,    v.-ho played the part of Marionette, was  still  upon  the  stage  when   Fabrec���������you  know Fabrec, the deputy with the long  ' blond beard, who, in spite of his 40 years,  looks younger than many men of 30���������appeared at the stage entrance,    lle^never,  "'     , you will remember, fails to be present,ut  every first performance of a new piece,  and one expected to see it known that in  a milcl way lie admired In belle Sophie.  On reaching Chei-iib'in's dressing room  Fabrec opened the door, but found it de-  0   sorted, much to his disappointment.'    As  ho was about to retire old Constance, tho  ,'      dressorof the Odeon, appeared from be-,  ' '   ������ hind the screen. ��������� 'a     '        ' ,  t ,      "Ifr monsieur  would' like  to  wait,  ho  '   '   will please be seated.    .Madame is just  ,  (   finishing the act-and will be here rn a  momcut."   '  Having  e.-propsed   a  wish  to  remain,  Fabrec dropped into a luxurious fauteuil  ", and, -crossing one leg over the other, sat-  tapping   the   toe   of   his   patent   leather  f .,,' boots with the end of his cane.    While he  was lost in thought the old woman wont  'l   , to,and fro arranging the articles on the'  toilet table.      '  '  After all, thought Fabrec, what mean-  ;, ing   was, there   in   his   visits   to, Sophie  Cherubin,   these  calls 'upon^ her   behind  '     the scenes? .They were not prompted by  love, not even the whim of a passing fancy.    The  Cherubin .was simply  a  jolly  '-    companion.    lie recalled (a conversation  ���������"  ��������� .they had one day  while be .was .seated  -',- 'smoking a  fracrant cigar.    Sophie chad  A    turned to hini and said:  "Listen to me,, mon chcr Fnbree.    You  , - 7- are, a'good looking fellow",��������� "  4  "You are amiable," interrupted Fabrec,  patting her little hand.       . , _   ���������  "Simply truthful. f I-like you,  but we  must understand each other.    I owe 40,-,  000,000   francs���������too   much   money,? mon  ami. to waste time in thinking about test-,  ing the merit and strength of your affec-  '��������� '  tion."*   ��������� . '  ���������������       ..,���������''.'      '  "Wise little woinan!" replied, Fabrec,  watching the,smoke curl above his head.  .   o    .."You.are welcome here whenever you  wish to come'and have a chat with'me,  but remember we can nevercbe anything  ' " but good comrades."  v    l   -     -   '' ��������� "  : Frankly, Sophie had good reason to deliver .the .aforesaid advice, for 'Fabrec  was a'constant visitor and Cherubin a  pretty woman.   " ,    '  While indulging in various thoughts  Fabrec looked carelessly at the dresser,  and his reverie was interrupted abruptly  by catching tho reflection in the glass of  the withered face of he aged woman.  "What a ruin!" he-thought.'  "How uncommonly ugly, dry as an old stick, withered as an apple iu winter!    Who would  ' think she had ever1 been youngV"    Poor"  old Constance!    Her hair was gray, he*  eyes were dead and expressionless, while  her mouth was sunken in for the want of  teeth.    Fabrac,  whose heart was  kind,  looked regretfully at the poor old woman, who was apparently on the brink of  the grave.    Gently she touched the lace,'  flowers and,varied articles, all the luxu-  , ,   ries and perfume of the dainty toilet table of the actress, and seemed to have forgotten the presence of the visitor,     o  Suddenly  the door was thrown  open,  ., and Sophie Cherubin appeared, a charming vision,  in  her pretty costume.    She  was as fresh as a bouquet of roses, radiant in youth, health and effrontery.  "Ah,  Fabrec," she said joyfully, "you  are most,welcome this evening!"  "I congratulate .myself, to be so fortunate."  , "We are to .bo called for shortly���������1  mean myself and the 1 company���������as we  ' are to. go to the Gnite, where we have  promised to play for a benefit. Meanwhile, while waiting for the'time to start,  we can enjoy a chat."  "How kind!" responded Fabrec,'amused:  "Constance,"   continued   his' listener,  "get my wraps ready.    Now sit dowu.  Fabrec, and be entertaining."  "What can I say?"  "Anything you think of."  The old woman had retired behind the  , screen,   and   the   pair  conversed   freely.  Sophie,  ns  was  her ciiMoni,  teased  the  hniulsome deputy  about  the  gallantries  attributed to him by the member's of the  company in their greenroom gossip.'  "Come. Fabrec. lie frank for^once arid  tell mo about that affair with the leading lady of the Nouvenules."  "You   flatter   mo,   ma   belle;   I, have  nothing to lull."  "Do you expect me to believe you?"  "Certainly."  "Well, I do not: so speak out."  Fabrec smiled at her persistence, but  remained silent. Like an honest man,  he loved women for themselves and not  to feed his vanity by indulging others  with n description of his experience or  their folly.  To all Sophie's Questions Fabrec replied only by je.sts which told nothing,  and at length she grew irritated at his  reserve, being curious for a piquant recital.  "Well, mon nnge," replied Fabrec  laughingly, "since you are so anxious to  obtain information I will tell you about  one story in my life���������my first love."  "It was for an actress, of courseV"  "Ye:<; but 1 must fell yon that the  scene of ncl ion was not the Odean f heater. Moreover, the heroine was not a  Bocictnire of the Comedio Francaiye,    I  ViH. ������9 at the tloie and ticM aqd nt.jf  mg."  "You!"   exclaimed   the   littl  laughing heartily.  , "I was not fortunate in knowing you  at the time and  must therefore be excused, ma belle Cherubin."    "-  "Ob, go on," interrupted his listener.  "Cne evening I attended the first performance of a novelty at the little Theatre des Gobelins.    It was 'La'Berline de  I'Enugre' that was being played.    Well,  I fell violently in love with the leading  woman   of   the   compauy,   whose ' name  was Blanche Lilas.  , From the moment  she appeared  I was dazzled.    She was  young and beautiful; at least 1 thought  , so'then, not knowing, that it was possible for the beauty of an actress to/ take  wings wilh the fall of the curtain and the  application of cold cream and towels."  ,'"You   ungrateful, monster!"  exclaimed  Sophie, with 'a littio cry of horror.    "Is  this what I got for revealing to you the  secrets of the toilet?"  ��������� "Let that pass," continued Fabrec.  "As 1 have said, I was then in blissful,  ignorance of the ephemeral beauty of  the stage; also'the fact that most young  actresses rejoice , in the protection q������  some younger' cavalier or sublieutenant.  In my eyes Blanche Lilas appeared simply as a lovely and desirable womanl 1  dreamed only of her and unknown lavished'upon her a complete rain'of flow-  ,' crs and not a few gifts.- Thanks to her,  I am, familiar ,wilh all the <le,ur old  melodramas of the past. In "The Idiot of  the Mountain' and in many other'plays  she \yas simply adorable. She was the  only woman to ^yholll I have ever written verses."  "You    write    verses    and," yet    have  never sounded my -praises."  "They were execrable,' nevertheless sin-  'cere, but I never had the courage to send  them to her. , During the vacation 1  went to the provinces to visit my family.  I counted the ,hours when 1 would return to Paris. I hastened to the Gobelins, then to'Montparnasse,L to Grenelle.  The. name of my Idol did not figure in  any of the bills. I was,frightfully anxious and finally found courage to interrogate-tho stage,, door keeper of Gobelins  and was told that Blanche Lilas had- not  been ��������� re-engaged, and no one knew what  had' become of her." ,  "You never saw her again?'".''  "No; I made inquiry after inquiry, but  failed.    Belieye me, if 'you will, when I  tell you that^siuce the day that 1 lost all  clew'to tho Lilas I have never known a  sadder hour, a 'more'rtbitter love' experience.,  For months I was inconsolable."  , "Is  that  all':" 'questioned   the  comedienne,        v  ,   (   '-  "All." c  "Fabrec, you are a riddio and are making game at mo'/with this souvenir of  your callow days.",  "Madame! Madame! ' The carriage  has come, and they are waiting foryou!'/.  yelled'the callboy, entering the room hurriedly.    ' ,'    ,   ���������  "Mme. Cherubin, please hurry!" cried  a voice without.   "We are late."'  "Heavens!" exclaimed Sophie, throwing on her velvet wrap and seizing a lace'  scarf from the hands of the dresser. "Au  revoir,' Fabrec! Au revoir! - Think of ,a  better story to tell me next time." ' ���������  In .another instant she was gone, but  the ring of-her merry laugh was heard as  ' she ran across the staae.  The deputy was, about to depart when-  old   Constance   approached.    -Her   steps  were feeble and her face full of sadness.  VMonsieur," she said, "may I speak to  you for a moment?"'   ',' ',    ,   ijS.  '  "Well, what  is it, 'ray good  woman?"  questioned Fabrec. '  ' "1 have a petition to make. You see 1  am .old and weary. My healtlu-is gone,  and I can no longer 'do my work here at  the Odeou. I want fo make application  to be admitted-into the hospital.", l  "All right," said F'nbrec iu an absent  . manner. "When I rail again upon ma-  dame, have a note rcidy for me."  "There is "something more, monsieur,  that 1 would like to say," continued .the  old woman timidly.' "It may interest you  in my favor. I heald all you said while  you were talking to madame, and I wish  , to tell you that I was Blanche Lilas."  .Involuntarily Fabrec uttered an ex-  '-clnmation and shrank from the speaker.  Blanche Lilas, the dream of his youth,  this poor old woman la whom every  vestige of beauty had died. -  "How old are you?" he inquired.  "Not ns .old, monsieur,-as I appear,"  she said, with a sad smile. "I have been  very unfortunate. 1 am GO, and when  you saw me last I was just 40. The  age of an actress is not recognized by  those who see her only from behind the  footlights: I was retired that very year;  they thought me too old. From ihnt'hour  I have known only poverty nnd distress.  This position I finally obtained through  the stage doorkeeper. Me spoke to ttiiti  malinger, 'who gave mo the place as  wardrobe woman and dresser of the  theater. I have tried to do my duty, but  all I am fit for now is the hospital, and I  wish to apply to the public charity for  admission. Since you remember me in  other days, I thought"���������a faint flush  tinted her pale face nnd the words trembled on her lips as her eyes sank beneath  the gaze of the man who had known her  in the past. "My name," she murmured,  "is Constance Fovrenu. Will you do  what you can for her who was once  Blanche Lilas?"  "I will attend to it tomorrow," he said  in a voice that shook with emotion.1  "Kest satisfied; I promise all shall be as  you desire."  Extending his hnnd, Fabrec clasped  sadly that of his companion. Twenty  years before he would have wept with  joy to have held it within his own. Now  In the presence of a painful reality there  remained only the memory of other days.  On the following day Fabrec obtained  at 11'o Hospital of the Incurables a bed  for ilie woman who had given him hia  first'dream of love.���������Translated From  the French For Philadelphia!!,  S90 PACIFIC LSE  .
