'  Not Fop Party Lines,  In spite of rumors to the contrary,  Sir- Hibbei t Tupper seems to bo of the  same opinion on the political situation  as when he.' declared himself at the  meeting of the.Young Men's Conservative Association a couple of weeks ago.  In an interview to-day he blamed the  conservatives for not uniting with the  libeials for the defeat of Joe. Martin  when he first advispd such a course, as  the   act iou   of  conservatives   here in  i iy f  insisting on paity lines had had, the  effect of driving some liberals* into  Martin's camp.

THE TAILOR.  <���������*.,*} o'  , As an illustration of the justification  of his stand, Sir ^'Hibbert said:   "Supposing that   the Zulus   aud'' Basutos  should rise in South; Africa and start  iu ,to massacre all the Boer  women  and children in the Tiansyaal,, would  England look calmly on?   I think  not.  Even before Oom Paul could "ask  Her,  Majesty to aid him in suppressing the  bloodthirsty savages, British generals  would bemarching side by side with  the Boers to suppress the uprising, and'  when the Zulus had been punished in  the interests or humanity, the war between, the British and the Boers would  be again resumed.    It is so  in  British  Columbia.    We have a savage reckless  Zulu element in our politics, lead by a  Zulu named Martin, ,aud the respectable, time-tired, civilized political patties who,have  been  fighting against  each other since the dawn of confedera-  tipn^fSince .-Cahacla ������>vas���������should even'  -now inarch sicl'e*i)jr������i'de against an irresponsible   political   chief   who   would  massacre our fondest hopes,  our most  cherished desires to make British ' Columbia a great country, ruled by*'a wise  and just  crovernrnent���������hopes  and desires that will never reach maturity  during, the domination of Joseph Martini"���������Colonist.    , '  ,    '  &^ <^/&������^>^rt/fy <ty������/������/%^bl'&*to  ,      GRIP AND PASSWORD.

Though   open  to  others it'is the intention of the members to make this' gathering more par-'  ticularly.a re-union of formrr Donald  residents, this being probably the.last  opportunity of collecting their   numbers, as they are. fast   scattering   to  various parts.

The question of the safety of Johannesburg and the gold mines there has not'  been raised. ������������������  He Refused to Take Part.  A prominent llevelstoker whose  name appears as a delegate to the  "conservative" convention but who  was unavoidably absent, today informed the Mail that when first seen  about attending^by Secretary Sibbald  he stated he didn't care to take any  part and refused to appoint a' proxy  even. Indeed, he km id, I had to ask  what they meant by "party lines" so  little did I know about the matter.'  And this is what the Herald looking  complacently over the list of names  calls a representative convention. For  a starter, let it explain the above;  there may be more next issue. *���������  Lucas-Short. ���������  A very pietty and fashionable wedding took place on board the Str.

After  the ceremony the guests partook of a  sumptuous repast- provided by Mr.  Hudson, the steward; then followed  toasts interspeised with songs, and  Mrs. Capt.

'   But   two    applications-   were  brought.before the commissioners, that  of H. A. Brown for a transfer of  the ,  Union Hotel  license to  Ed.   Corning  and,the latter applying for transfer to  the premises known  as   the  Edwards'  Hotel.    A petition  against  granting  of the license   was  receivpd   from the  \V. C.T. U.,   ard   Mr.   Corning  presented one on his  behalf,   both   being  fairly   well  signed. -  After   some  dis- ���������  cussiun, during   which   the.   applicants  addressed the' meeting,   the  following  resolution passed :-r-  Movcd and seconded by Com mis-  sionfii'H Nettle and Newman: That  this board of licenso curnmisMoncrs '  extends to, Mr. Ed.

No Cause for a Hurry.       ��������� .  J. M. Kellie, M. P. P. said today '  when seen'by a Mail man that he had  nothing new to say about politics.  He thought there was still lots of time  for the independent electors of Revelstoke riding to come together and"  choo.se a candidate as Mr. Martin  apparently seemed to be in no hurry  about appealing to the country.

Tt .seems'lo wish  to'deueA'e  or confuse,.lo make mis-statements or  unmeaning  fiddle faddle.    Just, look*,  for, instance, at its position on'   "p.i.'iy  lines   in < provincial   afr'aiiV'    and    say  whether it is shallow ^stratagem   or ,a  distressing density iliat  i-s   responsible'  for such a crop of cross-purpose-i as in  * /  this   .stumbling   stuff tui-en   from ' its  own .columns    within   the    past   two  weeks..  c  On -\iarcb 9th, speaking on this  subject as a conservative paper, it  thought for the electorate that .fresh  inllucncos shoald.be brought into our  provincial aftaiis '"by adopting tho  system which has so long prevailed in  Ontario. Quebec anil ^Manitoba, of coii-  testing our provincial elections along  the lines of the parlies in the JJo.mnii.n  house" and. proceeding on these lines,'  llu; Connervatives hei c;'-'called a convention to "bring out a conservative  candidate "being cuininced that the'  mass of the electors desiie a contest  on party lines''" and/���������'will poll their  votes for a conservative.*"'  On March 20th; three days after  tho convention, it recommends "a  fusion,*"' as .it the time of thc original  formation of tho liberal-conservative  party iu the Dominion. Jt finds a  lo.-tUire of the times in the .fact that-  two or three liberals-were, at. tho ''convention'"'' um] says the. present crisis'  in the province is "too grave to be  , indued for'a mere party tiiumph or  to be twisted into an attempt to  bolster up any political party at  Ottawa." It continues:���������"It is a time  for united action on iho pait of all the  host there is^'ii thc province   .villi   tie  dictory and inconsistent as to require  an explanation removing the suspicion  of insincerity or tomfoolery there is in  them. Either the Herald is wilfully  aud wickedly attempting to win liberal  and general suppott to a purely conservative candidate, to be titled a lory  triumph in event of winning, or it is  unable to stick to simple facts foi; two  weeks together. Which is it ? Play  fair and tell us ! Make no abstract'  explanation, though/of the relation of  liberal and conservative when joined  by a hyphen for in ' principle and  practical politics they are as dissimilar  as antagonism and oppositcnes's can  make them.     "At   once/ liberal    and  conservative" is as sensible as a   north  i-  by south course, and in explaining il-  self���������we hope the Herald will stick to'  the words, liberal and conservative, in  the Siinse of general usage, not o: s.mie  hermaphrodite thing., "at once' libe.-a!  ami conservative."  The political situation is steadily,  clearing, there is actually a streak of  blue in the sky, and our'advice to the  independent' electors of Revelstoke  riding, whether conservatives, liberal or  labor, is to, keep themselves free from  pledges until the situation has still  further unfolded "itself, for just now  things are most decidedly coming their  way. 'J'he "party lines" movement is  already receiving .some pretty rough  handling and its exponents steadily  getting the,, worst of it. The Victoria  Conservative Association has, after its  third meeting adjourned to'meet at the  call of the chair which means practically the defeat of .'��������� party linos" on  the Island. \Tlie Nelsou-Rossland conservatives ' tiimmed disgracefully on  that issue; "without, regard to partv  aliiliation in federal politics/' even  here'at home Revelstoke votaries of  "party lines" are now talking "i'u.sicm'"  '���������and united action of ail that is best."

Can give lrorc comfoit and satisfaction
To a yeaniing stomach than pork and bean*.
When the inner man for a feed Is nay. ins

When the stomach rebels and is misbehaving

The Story of a Young Woman   j>
Physician and a Young*       . ���
' Man Patient.       L     ',,    ��t
It was.n in'ono* day Cor Martha JRvans
Tvbcu, after'fouA.ycars' hard work in a
celebrated nu*(licai:-.fscliool, she returned
to her native city, routed and furnished
n tiny olliee on rhe main street, iiiing a
gilt sign in' the window and sat down to
>awnit a call from some nIHicted'onc.
.Martha, was a "new woman" in the
sweetest, noblest and purest sense "of
that nineh abused word- She bad none of
the coarse, maunis-h alVeetations that so
many women supnose.' they must display
in'order to'impress t\ie world with their
ncntal superioiit.v, but. a holy desire 1o
relieve mankind of a few of the "ills that
. flesh is heir to" made her voice <-ol*t with
womanly .sympathy.
1 Dr. Evans spent the first three days in
' arranging and reai'ra.iisins ^e Utile office
into which she had gathered numerous
tokens of .love'1 received from friends and
admirers, and the place wore a decidedly
feminine appearance. *        "        _
On the moriims of tho fonrtlyla.v. .inst
as she was eiitc-riiiy the olliee door, a loud
ring ar the telephone made her heart' leap
��� with expectation'.    She Cohly ran lo the
instrument and received this mess-age:
"Please call at once at die residence of
Mrs. Grcengo. , Mr. Gr'ooniro is ill."
In her haste to answer the call she almost forgot her medicine en.<cA The
(jreengo residence was only a few blocks
distant, but tlie short walk gave .Martha
time to compose herself, and when ok
Mr*. Grcengo greeted her the youthful
physician was as quiet and dignified as-if
life was an old story.
"You   remember   me,' don't   you.   iny
dear?"   asked   Mrs.   Greengo,   extending
her hand, and Martha replied:        _
��� "To   be   sure   1   do.   but   who   is   Mr.'
GreengoV   I thought you were a widow.
"I am a widow, my dear.    Mr. Grcengo
i�� my nephew, a,very brilliant young lawyer   but somewhat given to melancholy.
He seemed  well enough  when  he came
.down  this  morning,   but  a  few  minutes
,   ago became ill and asked me fo rail .yon.
So saving; the old lady led the way into
the 'sitting -room,   where   Mr.   Grcengo,
clad  in dressing gown and slippers and
'   with  eyes closed,   lay  stretched .-at
leivth on "a great couch before the
fi rein y
"Here   is  the'- doctor,   Paul
annouueed   -Mrs.   Greeugo,
then she seated herself on the couch at
his feet. > , , .   .     .
'    The man on the couch moved his head
slightly, but made no other sign of having
^Martha's quick eye noted the giant
frame, the long black hair and the large,
strong mouth as she drew a chair, to "?s
Bide and, laying her tiny fingers on his
wrist, asked iu gentle tenea:
"What is the trouble, Mr. Greeugo'
Where are you ill V" ,
Without  opening  his  eyes  ho  replied
crossly:, ,
"1 am a lawver. madam, and not a physician. How do 1 know what is the trouble*.'   1 soul, for .vou to find out."
"Yes. sir; I know." said the lady conx-
in-lv.  "but you  imi��t loll  me how  you
&    Your pulse is quick,  but with no
si"ns of fever.   Show me your longue. . .
He extended a largo, red, clean tongue,
*��� and Martha continued in sweet, coaxing
t0"Your tongue is peculiarly healthy
lo'oking. so it cannot be your stomach.
Sow, tell me. have you pain any place
ire you dizzy or faint?" The patient
opened a pair of lanro, mrlancholy brown
Ses. looked her squarely in the face nii.l.
laving bis hand over his left breast said:
���"For  a   long,   long  *<*����   l   l"in'�� ,ljH1d  a
" strangelv numb, empty .feeling riijlit here

mother had punished n.o. I f"cl like

^occasions, by heart has pa!,nlnted so
' wildlv that it made me faint and Ul.
Martha's cheeks Hushed lightly. IvnotM-
Inr beside him, she laid her ear against
.   his chest and listened.   Truly, the pulsation of his heart was peculiarly rapid.
"Are you too ill to  rise*.'*' she asked
'""whr   if It -s necessary, I suppose I
can Btfinrt." ho replied savagely, rising to
WMr?' Gi-P'Miso sbook her head and looked frightened. Dr. Evans smiled roguish-
.,_      ��� ��� *������**''
shoulders. Mr.' Greenm*." she said, (jiiiof-,
ly eving the (all figuie before her.    Shall   ,
I*  stand   on   the  couch   or   will   you   sit
downV   Aud please remove your dressing
He smiled just thc ghost of a smile and
sat down. He was so helpless it required
the assistance of,, both' ladies to remove
his dressing gown. The doctor then
took two , strange looking ius-tniments
from her grip and proceeded to give Mr.
Greengo's h art and lungs a thorough
examination- V> hcu it was completed,
she rcnlaced the <iv. n-uinents. and, seating  herself    iodide   <.- -  couch,  she, said
quietly: ' .-���..,     A    .
��� "Mr. Grcengo, I fail^ro finu the least
symptom of disease about yon. I think
you have overtaxed your nervous system
a little and need some rest and recreation. If you will spend a month in
amusing yourself, mostly in outdoor exercise, and will leave work and boo.-cs
nnd business entirely out of ilie pro* j
gramme. I will give you a little tonic am. i
a promise that you will feel as t'ov.ud a- -
ever before thc nionlh is out." She gave
him Ihe prescription she had been writing while she was speaking and .then.as.
she drew on her glovo.s turned to Mrs.
Greengo'and began an animated conversation about old timoi and old friends.
* Paul Greengo watched her a few, minutes, a heavy frown between his eyes.,
then arose and left the room without a
word. ' n
Two davs later, as Dr. Evans-sat before her own cozy grate fire readinr the <
morning   paper,   the   otiice  door  opened'
and Grcengo entered.   '
"I hav*1 been doing just as you told
jne, doctor," he said, "and lam feeling
much worse. ' In fact, 1 have never been
so miserable in' all my life as I have
these last two days." ,
Martha's "great  blue  eyes   filled' with
tears. , , '
"Mi.-. Grcengo," she said, "you know I
am just a young physician aud have had
little experience.    1   will  be glad  if you'
will   consult   soma  ouu  older  and   wiser
than L." , ,      '  ',
"No; 'I will,' not," he replied stoutly.
"1 don't want any one else. 1 am sure
you can help uio. That is. why <J, called
this morning. Twain to tell you that I
feel horrible when 1 am alone, and 1 believe 1 need cheerful company.' 'I wonder
if you cannot arrange your work so as to
drive with me for au hour or so every
morning:?"     '   ' ,
. Ho' looked bo .helpless and miserable,
this "great giant with the melancholy
eyes', that Martha answered readiW:
"li will, Mr. Greengo, for 1 am vesy
anxious to help you."
And, so it came about that they drove
together^every morning thereafter, and
little Dr. Eva'ns amused her big patient-
with merry conversation, aud he began
at ouce to mend.
The days and the weeks tlew by, and
Martha's', patients increased in number,
but not in importance. ��� ��^   .
One morning in .lune Paul entered tne
little olliee on Main street with a,curious
twinkle in his eyes.
"Doctor." he'said, "1 wish you, would
listen to my heart this morning."
Martha looked alarmed and immediately  arose  and   laid   her  ear  against  the
broad chest from which Paul-had drawn
' his.coat and vest.   , .-. .
"Do you not hear a strange sound
thore, doctor?" he asked.
"No, I  do not', Mr. Grcengo." 'she rc-^
plied. ."It seems to me your heart beats"
wonderfully strong and true."
She moved away,  but he drew her to
"Something is wrong with, your .ear,
Martha," he said, "for 1 hear it plainly���
a little song in my heart that sings^evcr.
'I love you, 1 love you, 1 love you.' "
"Paul Greeugo!" cried Martha, drawing herself from his-embrace andlooking
angrily'into his soft eyes. -Have you
been fooling me all this time?"
"No, darling." he replied. "1 have had
all the symptoms 1 told you of. The
buruin'-' emptiness a iul pain came into
my heart the morning 1 saw you place
that little gilt sign in. the window. After
that every time I saw you or heard your
name or'even .thought of you my heart
.would leap into my throat and there palpitate so .wildly I, could hardly breathe..
Don't give me any more pills or prescriptions, dear, but give me your own sweet
self, and I will.be'well and happy the
rest of my days1.", -
Paul is Martha's only patient now, and
the declares she has all she can attend to:

There were others  who were equally 'positive that he  would do nothing of the���������sort.  Premier Martin returned to Victoria  by Saturday night's train. Apparently he had failed in his mission, though  there, wire not lacking rumors that  some kind of a deal.had been fixed up,  of which more would'be heard later.  Mr. M. P. Gordon, interviewed byga  representative of tlie*Sentinel as to the  objectof Premier Martin's visit, stated  that the premier had come up to Ivam-  loopp to invite him lo .join his cabinet.  ���������No particular porte-folio had been  mentioned. That was a matter for  subsequent "arrangement.' He (Mr.  Gordon) had discussed the whole" situation very!*' thoroughly ,-willi ;-J[r.  Martin, but as to the decision arrived  at he preferred to say nothing for tho  time being.
