Lincoln, Nebraska, inft1872  was a town of less  tnan  4000  people,   now  it is  the  home town  of  William  Jennings  Bryan  and    25,000    Republicans.  In 1873,   Dallas,  Texas,   was a  growing   town   of   ,'i,000. people,  mostly    Democrats;   taday  it  has  close on to 100,000, some of whom  are Republicans!    hi 1888, Donald  B.

In  1889, Now Westminster had a population  of C^OOO.   two of   whom,  Alec Ewen and Alderman  Tuques,  Bostonians Wade Brilliant Debut.  The Juvenile Bostonian Oom-  pany opened their engagement at  the Edmonton Opera House last-  night before a good house, with  Gilbert & Sullivan's famous opera,  "Dorothy."  Edmonton has recently been favored with a series of good plays,  but if the future performances of  the above company equal that of  last night's,  all  previous records  has ever happened in the mines of  the Boundary occurred at Phoenix  Saturday evening, when the Brooklyn ore bunkers of the Dominion  Copper company dropped 200 feet  taking waste dump, the ore that  was in the bunkers, and two C. P.  R. tracks.' The eave occurred at  7:15 and no men were in the mine  at the timo.  For some months past the  management    has    known    that    the  ground   where   the   cave-in   took  place was none too safe.    In working the property by a  former management some 3'ears ago,   the ore  was taken  out   without   allowing  sufficient support, and this particular part of the Brooklyn mine was  kept clear of  as far as possible.  Recently it was noticed that some  of tho old timbers at the 250 level  were giving way, and tho culmination eiuno last night.  As it happened the-C. P. R. ore  (row had taken out 11 cars of ore  but a few hours before, though usually switching at the time the  cavo took placo.  Some time ago a well known  Chicago University professor made  the following statement in ah address in" Milwaukee: "There are  things you must know if you arc-  to be classed among the educated ;  they are tho 'science of evolution,  the higher criticism of tho Bible,  and Socialism."  The point made was that while  we, "individually, may approve o'r  disapprove or one or. all of these,  the fact remains that all of them  are being discussed and perhaps  accepted by thousands of the  prominent thinkers of the da)'. tt  thero be anything in any of these  things that may prove dangerous  to civilization or to morality(which  terms ought to be synonymous)  it is time for us not to disregard it,  but to find and present the danger  directly ro the advocators*.  The people of the entire country  have been shocked and stunned by  the revelations of graft in political  life. And having laid bare the  fact under the present system we  are completely in tho hands of the  trust octopus, and that there'iis  one code of law for the rich, and  an entirely different one for the  poor. The chief thing now before  the people is to find tho, remedy.  And finding the correct remedy  may be a somewhat more difficult  problem than diagnosing the disease. And this, notwithstanding  the fact that we are overrun with  thousands of paid exploiters who  have the remedy on their tongue's  end.  Undoubtedly the idea of the  originators of our democracy was  that the will of the majority should  rule. This does not guarantee  ideal government, for the majority  may be bad or ignorant. But in  our own ease the great mass of the  people have tied their votes over a  dead issue, leaving tbe government  W  should bo surpassed  In the cast each individual play-1 in the hands of a plutocracy quite  or was good, and would have done as opposed  to  government  by the  credit to an adult company, whilst | people as is  the autocracy of Rus  with additionnl experience some of  the   performers   should   make a  name for themselves in the future.  The exacting character of   the  title role  was  admirably taken by  liose Cole, whose every movement  was an embodiment of natural  grace. Besides being a natural  actress, Miss Cole'has a beautiful  soprano voice which effectively  rendered the many songs which fell  to her part.  sia. Their own fault? Yes, but  we must consider that million;? of  dollars of thc people's money are  spent by this plutocracy quite as  opposed to government by the people as is the autocracy of Russia.

Republican   orators   are  shouting  that Socialism    means   the   overthrow   of our system  of  government, and if this refers to our system of graft, the  nation   will survive.     But any of tho several parties in the field  that can   receive ������������������  tho united vote of the producers of  "  the country's wealth cannot jini; in  time bring relief  from the present  condition   of   coajulaled    wealth.  Mistakes will be  made, of course.  The   Republican   party   need  but *  give a brief review to its 4(> years  of  almost  uninterrupted power to  lie able to condone  mistakes  in a -"  new party.  ���������    To look for immediate and  full .  relief,     however,     from     present  wrongs in  government  ownership  of railroads and other  public utili-'  ties, is  ro  take  too  optimistic   a-  view.    When our churches, allied,  with  evolution,   shall have effaced .  the   quality of selfishness,   which  most of us retain  in  a greater  or  less    degree,    then     the    coming- '  brotherhood of -"man   will  be easy.  But   present   conditions   are   the  ones which must be met.  A limit on the amount of land  ownable by one person or company,  on the number of miles of railroad,  and on the utilities, might check  the-tendeney of.those individuals  who have not progressed far enough  along the scale of evolution to resist taking more than their share.  There is a very common "and satisfactory practice among farmers of '  nailing strips across the top of the  swine trough.  But, after all, the most serious  difficulty is that we are in precisely  the condition of the old lady, who,  having acquired a little property,  thought she would take life easy,  and hired a household of servants  to wait on her. But she worked  herself to death ringing the call-  bell.���������Julia C.

Evert Baker, of Greenwood,  tackled Renshaw of North Vancouver last week, for the amateur  lightweight wrestling championship of British Colunbia and didn't;  get a lookin. Following account  of the event is taken from the  North Vancouver Express:  "The main event, Renshaw vs.  Baker, saw everybody awaiting the  start, and at precisely ten o'clock  the refeiee, Win. Thompson, introduced the wrestlers, amid loud applause.  fn the clinch   Renshaw  got  the  better hold, and   for the  next six  and one-half minutes was continually  on   the   aggressive,   working  with might and Jtnain,   rolling  his  opponent in every conceivable p v-  tion, until the desired moment arrived, when he quickly placed Baker's shoulders on  the  nut.    Tho  throe-minute    rest   did   much   to  freshen the two up. and when  tho  second  round   l.ijgau   it   was  seen  that  their  vigor  had   not  iu  tho  least dis'ippeared.

The stones and  eggs  hurled  at  Mr. Bouraspa have made the riff in  Quebec Liberalism  absolutely  beyond  repair.    A   political   faction  cannot resort to violence and   then  produce    harmony.    Sir    "Wilfrid  j Laurier may reconcile men to graft  by the exercise of corrupt influence  but   he   cannot  make  dishonesty  J popular   by force.    Nobody should  : he better informed upon this   than  "'Sir   Wilfrid   himself.     When    the  right honorable gentleman -wanted  ! to form an  alliance  with  Sir  Ad-  ' olphe ("hapleau  ho  did   not stone  that distinguished opponent.  j    Sir Adolphe, in a speech  deliv-  Minei������'   ["nion  No. Ieied in Chambly,   thus  tells  what  meet." fVfiv S:itnr-! happened,     lie said:  "f have been  I-b-iriil.-ir monthly meetings of  Gieer.wtxxl lodge.

Tie said: "This is what  I pippose. The position of Lieutenant-Governor will be tit our disposal at the. end of IS97, and, if  from now to that time you are not  appointed judge, I promise to place  the Lieutenant-Governorship at  your'disposal." Nor, when Mr.  Blair, because of the extravagance  and the corruption of the Laurier  proposal on the subject of the  ('riuuLTrunk Pacific, declared that  he could not conscientiously support that project, did Sir, Wilfrid  hurl missiles at his colleague. On  the contrary, Sir Wilfrid suggested  that the dissenting Minister retain  his ollice and his emoluments, but  observe absolute silence with reference to the project to which he  was opposed.  Unite, force is, therefore, not, according to thc'tight honorable gentleman's experience, the best solu-  tiod of a dilliculty. 'The resort to  force indicates that nothing else  can-be relied upon. Thus it seems  that tho breach is irrevocable.  That it will widen seems altogether  probable. These difficulties do not  improve with age; and besides, human nature rejects coercion and  sitles with the lighter, especially if  has reason on his side.���������Mail and  Umpire.

Those  who were privileged to hear the  Bostonians in this same little opera  upon the occasion of their visit to  the city last Bpring  were,   if anything, more delighted with the performance last evening, and especially so with  the appearance of little  Halcyon Martin the most juvenile  of the juveniles.    Although scarce-  five years of age, the small tot possesses a wonderfully  strong  voice  and sings her songs and carries her  parts with a  surprising  degree of  the finished artiste in her manner.  The "Rajah of Pazala" is a lively  and   entertaining piece of comic  opera, with a plot just sufficiently  intricate to maintain  the  interest.  The  prominent figure in the play  is "Buttons," the cabin boy of thc  H. M. S. Dominion, in which character appears Babe   Mason,    the  star of the company.    Little  Miss  Mason has lost none of her charms  in the past year and  she received  well   deserved    applause.    Grace  Hutchinson is another of the young  artists who is also  well received.  A. new actress appeared in the role  of Pat Luney,   the  tramp,   in   the  person of Jessie  Macpherson,. but  her presentation  of the part was  fully equal to any  that  have pre:  ceded  her.

Taking into consideration the fact that tho  horse   generally carries  more than   150  pounds of ridor, saddle and gun, one gets  an idea of how much superior ho is.

Bean of Milwaukee  tells the following story about General  Sheridan, which ho says has never ap-  poarcd in print: When stationed in Chicago General Shoridan liked very much to  get away to North lake in Waukesha county for a Ashing trip now and then and  passed many pleasant days on tho lake.  On odo visit tho gennr������l went out early iu  the morning in tho uoat, and after staying  out for several hours with no luck decided  to return. Rowing in, ho landed near a  field where a farmer was plowing.  Shoridan stopped and watched tho plow,  turning the furrow so oven and straight,  the fresh earth rolling away from tho stool  shoe like a brdwn wavo running on tho  ���������hlngle. Leaning on tho rail fence, he  waited until tho farmer camo up, and,  speaking to him, produced a flask of antidote for snake bite and -asked the farmer  to join him in a nip.  The invitation was  instantly accepted,  ���������nd the farmer took what might bo described by an expert as "three lingers."  Wiping his mouth, thu agriculturist broke  the silence by asking, '-'Stranger,  what  might your name boi"'  ".������������������Ph'II Sheridan," was tho reply.'  "Why,   that's   the same name as  the  I great gonorol." -  I "Yes,"said Genoral Shoridan modestly,  "and, < by the'<way, I am tho genoral."  With this hp started to movo away.  The farmer was dazed .for a moment,  and then, gathorlng himself together, and  tho liquor adding somewhat to his luquao-  lty, ho cried: "Say, stranger, that liquor  of yours Is almighty good, but 1 don't  think as imicli of your stories. You General Sherldanl" with a scornful glance at  the little man in tho rough fishing suit.  "Why, General Sheridan was n man 7 foot  high. Stranger, I just think you aru tho  blunkost liar I over met."  Shoridan walked off down tho road  bursting with laughter over thu farmer's  description. Ho minted the encounter to  his friends with great gusto, and It became one of his favorite stories.��������� Now  York pommorcial Advertiser.  An Invlilblo Clew.

Koai.rl In.  tho Cubin of n .Ship.  Hanging in Jiis rorim In tlio cabin of fin  Amoricanbark lauding for South Ai'iiiii,  at n .South street wharf, was a picture, ol  the captain's home anburo, in a I.oufr Island town, not far frdiu thu city. Hut--  easy of access lis this homo is, tlui captain  Bponds very little time in it, for his wife  sails with him, and, ovon In this port, thoy  livu mostly aboard tho ship. At sea and  In furolgn ports, whon they speak of homo,  they mean, of course, (heir homu on Lout;  Island, but practically they make their  homo in thu cabin of tho hark, and a comfortable homo too.  Upon thu walls of tho main ruoin of this  tnbin, which is a ruoin ol spauious <ll-  monsioiiK, thero are two pictures of (ho  hark itself. These are distinctly nautical,  but, aside from Ilium, the fiii'n^liiu<t of  the room is such as might he seen in any  rtiim devoted to like purposes ashore. In  (in alcove on one side is a plane; upon thu  other side Is a sofa, in tho center id' tho  room Is a table, upon which there arc  books and sowing and, here in port, wlioro  thu ship stands on an even keel, a v.-isu o/  (lowers. Thu room is lighted at nl^'ht by  a lamp like a piano lamp, with a broad,  spreading shade, but which, instead of being uphold by a standard with feet resting  on tho floor, is hero suspended frrmi the  dock beams running across under tho skylight overhead. There are here deep upholstered armchairs and other easy chairs,  and thoro aro rugs on tho lloor. it is a  homolike and attractive room.  Forward of this room is cho forward  jabin, which is also thu ship's dining  vooui. Tho lnizzonniust comes down  through tho after part of this room, going  down also through that end of tho fixed  table, giving to this cabin a decidedly  luarino touch. Opening off tho main oniric  tlioro aro a number of rooms, ineludiiifj  the captain's room, which is of ample size.  Thero is.huro also a room for thu captain'a  daughter, who sometimes sails with him.  As is customary on American <lecp watui  ships, there aro. two or three staterooms for  passengers, who aro carried when they  offer. On her last voyago to Africa this  vessel carried three passengers.  Tho captain has sailed for many years:  ho is acquainted in. ports all around the  world, and whorover ho goes theiu is no  lack of social life for himself and his wife.  They havo moro invitations ashore than  they can accept, and they entertain guests  aboard the ship, which is indeed their floating homu, but that they do not forget  their bomb ashore may easily bu imagined  from tho fact that thu ship's name is made  up in part of-~thu name of thu captain's  homo town.���������New York Sun.  t\  a^ms-a^as^s^^  Grocery  Next  Order from the Big Store.  &  AflDON  P..  15.
