Labor in Polities.
The labor unionists of Revelstoke ai e
numerous enough lo .ih-olulelv control
things polil ic.-tl in the city. Had they
taken Ihe trouble to regis t. r, in two
wards they could have'returned both
aldermen,i and there is no doubt they
could have, elected their candidate for
mayor, thus completely conl rolling
civic affairs. They missed Ihe oppoi-
t.unily li}- I'ailingilo regi-t"r.   , '
, H. now appe.ns that if the next provincial general elections, ai e, held on
Dominion patty lines,,the labor men
will have a candidate in the field for'
this lidiug. If i-uch should lie the case
there, will be.no danger of Ihe labor
candidate loosing his depo-it. If the
labor men'"of Ueyelstoke.'and district
will remain independent, keep clear of
both parlies-, .they will lie in a position
to dictate terms to any candidate or,
on the other hand lo yleit, theii own.
They are now building for the future,
[t remains wit h, them ' to build aright.
The .Mail has no hesitancy in siieal--
j.ing of tnis matter so plainly. "-Both old
parlies should recognize the fu'ct that
they have a new element to deal vvith
in the province and disti id., To ignore'
this fact is io invite def'-al. The work-
liiginen a re oi g.i.irziug, are   otgiiiized.

and   were   now   turning, both   inside   and
outside of an orange color, whicli indicated that it vvas past the middle of June.
, Uncle* Buscaboatas knew tlio shape, de-
,gree of ripeness nnd oven the iiuuilx-r of
- thorn���aliove   all,' the   40   plumpest   and
���shiniest specimens,  whicli seemed  to ho
saying.  ''Cook   tne!"   and   he  passed  his
time  gazing   tendeily   at   theiif'and   exclaiming in a melancholy tone, "Soon wo
shall have to part." , >   -
At   last   one  afternoon   he   resolved   to
��� make.'tlio -sacrifice, and, picking out  tlie
"best  fruit of-his dearly ^beloved  "(���iicitr-
hitaceae," Whose.growing had cost him so
great  labor,  he tittered  I lit*  terrible sen-'
"Tomorrow," quoth he. "I shall cat
these -10 and cairy them to C.-uIix uiail'et.
Happy thoy who eat them!"-
Tlicu-'eii'poii lie" slowly walked into, the'
house and passed the night in the distress'
of a father'who. the next d.-i'y. is to give
his clai'ighter.iii in.-ii i ia-,*'e.
"Alas, my piuiipkiii--!" shrhed he again
and again, unable lo woo sleep, hut prer.-
cntly lie heitan to relied and 'concluded
by- saying: "Tot. what else can I do but
, dispose of them? Why, that is just what
I raised, thein'for. They'll bring mo in
nt least 1-3 ���diiros'.' " ��
Endeavor if yoti e:ui to measure the extent'of his com-tei nation, fuiy and despair 'when on entering his garden the
next morning be discovered that d;iri:r.r
the night somebody had stolen tlie -10
pumpkins. To make the story brief,
Shakespeare's Sliyhickv in his paroxysm
of j'agc over tho Might of Jessica wit li his
jewels, could not have been more fren::ied
than ;Unclc Buscaheatas. ,
"Oh, if I find'thee���if 1 find thee!" he
Then, quieting down, however, ho coldly begati'to consider;!rid,comprehend that
his beloved specimens could not he in
Rota, where it would have been impossible to expose them for sale without his
recognizing them and whore, moreover,,
punipkiils weie sold very choap.i
"It is plain to he seen that they .arc in.
Cadi'/.." lie argued. ' "The infamous, ras
cally   thief   must   have  stolen   ihein   between 0 and 10 o'clock las! night and carried   them   off on  the" 1 li (.'clock   fi eight ���
boat.     I   will  go,to Cadi;; today on  ihe
early   passenger  boat,   and   it   will   be  a
caution if I don't catch tlie sneak and re-'
coverahe daughters of,my toil."-
So saying, he remained about 20 mill '.
utes longer on tlie she of the' catastrophe,
fondling ihe mutilated stumps and stems
of tho pumpkins, counting over again Ihe
missing "ones or formulating, the suit .of
accusation that he should make in coin
mencing a suit, until S o'clock 'struck,
and ho started for the pier.
The passenger boat, or hour boat, was
Retting ready to sail. It is an humble
barge that every, morning precisely at !J
o'clock starts for Cadiz, conveying pas
��� Bongers. just as the' freight hoar starts
every night at 12 o'clock, conveying fruit
nnd garden stuff The founer i.s called
tho hour boat,' because in that space of
time, or even in -10 minutes on some days,
if the wind be nMom. it traverses Ihe
three leagues that lie,bet wixt- the ancient
village of the'Duke of Amis and ihe an
cient city of Hercules.
So it was about half after 10 o'clock on
the morning of that day when Uncle
lUtscnlieatas planted himself in front of
a vegetable stall in tho Cadiz market and
said to the puzzled p ilieeman accompany-'
Ing him:
"These are my pumpkins!    Lay hold of
that  fellow, sir!" and  he pointed  to ihe
, stnllkeeper.
"Lay hold of nieV," repeated the huckster, full of surpiise and wrath. "These
pumpkins are mine.    I bought them."
"You may tell that to the justice of the
peace, sir," replied Uncle Buscaheatas.
"1 will not."
"You shall."
"You Uncle Thief, you!"
"You Uncle Bum!"
"Speak  with  more civility,, gentlemen.
Y'ou  arc Indecent.    Men ought  not so lo
-forget  themselves,"  remarked  the  police
officer very quietly, giving each of tlie in
terloculors a tup on the breast.
By this time quite n crowd had gathered round, while the magistrate in charge
ot the public murkets, whose real title '��
judge of supplies, was not long in making
Ills appearance.
The police officer handed the matter
over to his excellency, and the worthy
magistrate, learning how the case stood,
inquired In a majestic tone of the huckster: ,
"From whom did you purchase yonder
"From Uncle So-and-so of Rota," answered the man.
"That is as it should be!" cried out
Uncle I-5'.iscaboatas. "He is just fit for
such business! When his own vegetable
patch, which i.s a very poor one, fetches
him in but litttle. he sets to work to rob
his neighbors!"
"But." continued the magistrate, turning to the old gardener, "admitting the
hypothesis"that 40 pumpkins were stolen
l'l-oin ,yuii*'l.-ist""riight, how can you be certain that those, and no others, arc
"Well, well!" replied Uncle Buscaheatas. ,"Why, because I know them as well
as your excellency knows your own
daughter, if you have any. This one-
look, your excellency���i.s named "Itebo-
londa (round and puffy); this one, Cachi-
gordcta (pretty, plump slice);, that, one,
Barrigoiiil (potbelly): that one, Cooradilla
(dainty colored), and that other one yonder, Miiiiiiela, hocattso it resembles my
.vcongest daughter so much."     ,
And thereupon the poor old man began
to weep very bitterly.
"This is all veiy good." returned the
judge of supplies, "but the law is not
satislied with your merely recognizing
your pumpkins. The auihoiities must
feci convinced .as to the previous condition of the things in question, and ihoii-nf
you must give adequate proof. , ("oinlo-
uien, you liave'no right to smile. I am a
lawyer!" ,. ' 4-    >
""Well, then, your excellency .shall see
how quickly I can prove to everybody
without ever stirring from this spot (hat
yonder pumpkins were gr��wn-iii=r:iy=vi'go--
table garden," exclaimed Uncle Busca-0
bcatas, to the no small amazement of tho
bystanders. ���>
��� And, dropping on the ground a bundle
that he had been carrying and crouching
down till he sat upon his heels, he began
quietly to untie the many knots in the
handkerchief wrapped about the aforesaid-bundle.    '
Tlio wonder of the magistrate! tho stall-
keeper and the crowd increased rapidly.  '
""What is he going to pull out?" they
asked one another. , '    '  .
At the same instant up1 came another,
inquisitive body to see what was occurring,   and' the  stallkeepor,   espying   him,
called out:
"I am glad you have come. Uncle So-
and-so! This man says the pumpkins
tli.it you sold me last night and that are
,1101*0 listening, to the conversation were
stolen.   Now, you ansvyer him.".
The newly arrived turned yellower than
wax and tried to run away, but the bystanders bodily prevented hirn, and the
judge of supplies ordered him to stay
where he was.
f  As for Uncle Buscaheatas, he was nl-.,
ready eying the supposed thief and saying:      ' . ,'      ���,'
"Now you shall see what is good!"
���   Regaining composure, Uncle So-and-so
held forth as follows:
'"    "You are the, one who had better hoed
what you are talking about, for if-you do
not and yon cannot   prove your, accusation I shall have you sent to jail for libel.
These   pumpkins   were  mine.     I   ra'sed
them,  as  likewise  all   the  others .that';I
���have brought to Cadiz this season, in'my
kitchen garden at  IOgido, and nobody can"
prove the contrary." '   "
"Well, you shall see!" ejaculated Uncle
Buscaheatas,  vv.ho.   having at  length  got
the handkerchief untied, drew  foith and.
scattered, on   the  ground   its  contents���a
multitude of pumpkin  stems,  still  greeu.
and dripping moisture���and  then., seated
on his'heels and nigh dead with,laughter,
he addressed tho following speech to the
curious bystanders:
"Gentlemen, haven't you paid taxes?
And haven't you scon the ugly green
book, from which the tax collector tears
off, receipts, leaving still attached to it a
stump or little slip, sons to prove wheth- ���
er such and'such a receipt be false or
,"You refer to tho *?.bro talonario' (stub-
book)," gravely observed the judge, of
supplies. ' .-
"Well,' that is just what I am fetching
here���the 'libro talonario' of my vegetable patch, or otherwise the heads to'
which these pumpkins were joined before
they were stolen'from-.me. Look, gentlemen, and see! .Hero is tho head to llita
pumpkin. No one can doubt Jr. This
next one," as -you see. belongs to this other pumpkin. Ilerc'is one thicker, which'
lits on yonder., 'Exactly! And here is
one for this. .There is another for that.
And this pumpkilugoes on yonder stein."
Thus speaking, he .kept fitting a head
.or stump to, tlie cavity made in each
pumpkin-when torn from the vine, and
the spectators saw with iimazeinent'that,-
in fact, the irregular and crooked onils'of
tho stumps fitted most exactly into the
whitish shape and slight hollow presented by what we may call the cicatrices of
tho pumpkins.   .>
Then all the bystanders stooped down. *
including both the policemen and the
magistrate himself, and began to assist
Uncle Buscaheatas in so singular a verification, all exclaiming in ' the same
breath with childish glee:
"No, no! It is so undoubtedly! Look
here, gentlemen! This goes hero; that
goes there. Yonder pumpkin belongs to
tills stem; this pumpkin to that stem."
And the loud laughter of grown up
men 'mingled vvith the shrill cries of
urchins, with the imprecations of women, with the old gardener's tears of
triumph and gladness and with tlie
thumps' that the buinbailiffs began to bestow itpon the now convicted thief, as' if
Impatient to carry liini off to jail.
There i.s no need to mid that the bum-
bailiffs got their wish; that Uncle So-
and-so beheld himself obliged to hand'
back to the huckster, the 1." duros received from the s.'iine; that the latter
at once turned them over to Uncle Bus-
cabcatas. and that the said uncle wended
his way home to Itota. supremely contented, albeit murmuring to himself on
the road:
"Plow beautiful they looked in the
market! But I ought to have brought
'Mnnuela' back with ml*, so as to have
eaten her tonight myself aud preserved,
tho seeds!"��� Translation From the Spanish For Short Stories.
