Jn consequence of this  the fish are very greedy and bite at  ground   bait and   worms   freely.  There are two principal causes -for  this:   firstly,  having lain   in   the  deeper pools in a semi comatose  state during tbe greater part of tbe  winter they are naturally hungry;  secondly, they "are preparing themselves for the   spawning   season  which  requires them  10   exert   a  good deal of energy.    At this time  of the year, by careful observation,  it has  been  a-certained that it is  usual for fi.-.h lo move about considerable and as the water rises in  the creek? nnd rivers aud food becomes more plentiful they ascend  to the higher reaches, where they  ultimately spawn  on  the shallow  rapids and in the smaller creeks.  I wish to lay great stress on the  fact that by far the greater majority  of the fish in Boundary creek do  not spawn until the end of May  and first week in June. By care-  full observation last year, I found  that the fish were "lying at - the  rnoutli of the smaller creeks running into Boundary creek for some  considerable period before the ISth  ������������������?  ,   it'  is)  Another  barber'shop-has been  opened in Jveren'ieos.  .

ABOUT MEN FOLKS  Nothing They Ever Do Astonishes  Deacon  Spooner.  MEN  FOLKS  TAKE  CHANCES.  "When a Feller Thinks He's Got to  Know His Wife About as Well as  She Knows Herself He's Bound to  Get a Jar," Says the Deacon  [Copyright. 1907.   I>y  R.  C.   Parcells.]  "I wasn't a bit astonished," said  Deacon Spooner as lie s-.it down on the  postoflice steps nt Jericho to wait for  the mall to come In���������"no, sir, I wasn't  u bit astonished when Lemuel Fairbanks came over this afternoon to  where 1 was working In the garden  aud said that his wife had run a way.  Nothing that women folks ever do astonishes me.  "A woman may turn out to be an  nngel orJshe may turn out to be a  tarnnshun mule.  "The feller who marries 'em has got  to take his chances.  "When a feller thinks lie's got to  know  his wife about as  well  as she  "SHE SAT WITH IIER FEET UP IN ANOTHER  OHAIIl AND SAID SHE WASN'T GOINO TO  DO NO JIOItE WORK."  knows herself he's bound to get a jar.,  lie's bound to find out that he don't"  know her at all.  "Take a hog, now, and you can find  out all about bim In nn hour. He was  born a bog, and he's going to stay one  till you turn him into pork. You can  depend upon him until you start to  drive him somewhere.  "It don't take a feller long to learu  the ways of a cow. She'll either jump  fences or she won't She'll either kick  the milking pail over or she won't  She'll either settle down and grow fat  or she'll be trespassing all over the  fields and be as thin as a rail.  "I've got a yoke of oxen ten years  old. I've known the critters ever since  they was yearlings. I know just what  they will or they won't do under sartiu  Barcumstances. If there's solid ground  aci it's a bit downhill under their  feet they'll hump themselves to pull  an oak tree up by the roots. If it's  soft ground and uphill they won't pull  hard nuff to bring a towel off the  clothesline.  "I've got an old boss sixteen years  old. I learned his ways before he was  four. If he gets the lines under his  tall when I'm driving he's going to  kick. Can't say why, but he'll do It.  If he meets a flock of sheep iu the  road he's going to bust for the fence,  one side or t'other. Can't say how he  reasons, but away he'll go, and something will be smashed. 1 know him  from bead to tail, and I drive him accordingly.  Can Understand Most Men.  "A feller can understand most men.  If Lemuel Jackson says he'll bring me  a ton of hay tomorrow nt $16 the ton  I'm going to depend on it. If Darius  Taylor says he'll sell me a bar'l of pork  next fall I'm feeling as safe as if the  bar'l was already In the cellar.

He was the  same the day bis wife got bit by a  mad dog. He was the same when he  fell off a load of hay and broke his  leg. The rest of you are jesftbe same.  We've all had chances to be meaner 'n  plzen toward each other, but we hain't  taken advantage of'em.  "But wheu you come down to women folks-that's different. When Iwas  twenty-five I thought I understood 'em  and would have bet a cow agin a  lamb 1 did. but I ain't talking that  way now. I'm jest saying that they  are o puzzle, and 1 wouldn't bet on  'em nohow._.  "1 ain't sayins nothing but whnt you  nil know when I say that I'm living  with ray fourth wife. Some folks have  been kind 'miff to say that it's two  too many, but I reckon It's as one feels  about It.  "I thought my first wife was an  nugel. Used to run In on her at all  times when courting, but always found  her as placid as a rnlllpond. Never  showed tlio slightest temper, not even  when she stumbled over a hog. Said  that if anything happened to me she'd  commit suicide. Lord, but if any ono  had told me that 1 didn't know that  gal I'd have answered that he'd better  go to the lunatic asylum.  "We'd been married four weeks  when she pulled out a handful of my  side whiskers because I stepped on her  corn.  "We'd been married eight when sh������  .said she wished I was dead.  i   "We hadn't been married quite six  months when I come home with a load  of pumpkins one day and found that  she'd run away with a lightning rod  man. I didn't roller her, but let her  run and have never heard of her since.  Where I thought I knew all I didn't  know the first gosb-hanged thing.  "I wasn't going to he made a fool of  the second time, and nfter I got my  divorce I went up town for the winter  and to look around.

There are men  sitting right here who can remember  the night I brung her home. 1 was  mending the back fence one day a  week later when I heard her swearing.  I went iu, and she swore at me. She  sat with her feet up in another chair  and said she wasn't going to do any  more work. She didn't. I had to do  It all. She got beer and whisky, and  she choked money out of me and made  it tly. Nothing was like what I thought  it'was. I'd made a bigger fool of myself than before, even though 1 had  my eyes open.   ���������  "Two months had gone by, and I was  trying to stand It, when the preacher  called one day. I had taken It that  religion was Sarah's stronghold, but  the minute the preacher mentioned It  she run him out of the house and down  through the gate.  How It All   Ended.  "I reckon there's nobody in Jericho  who don't know how it all ended. One  night after she had pulled me out  of bed and dragged me outdoors I  started for Texas and stayed there  long 'nuff to get my second divorce.  "I'm a-telling you that I don't believe there's a man or a critter on earth  who can make a fool of a man more'u  twice over���������a man with any brains under his hat���������but you leave It to the women folks, and (hey'II do it half a dozen limes over. When I was sorter shying around after my third wife there  was folks in town here who said they  should think I'd had all the marrying  I wanted. 1 didn't pay any uttention  to the remarks. (Jetting married or  staying single is a man's own business.  A tin peddler told me of a widder woman over Iu Dobhs Ferry, and 1 went  over to see her. I was took again at  first sight���������forty years old; strong as  a horse; uever'd had a day's sickness;  could eat raw turnips like a cow.  "I didn't say nothing about marriage  till I'd been over there a dozen times  and asked a heap of people a heap of  questions. I sat with her. I talked  with her. I ate with her. Nothing  wrong; everything all O. K. Then 1  popped, and she said yes. You all remember when I brung her home. Some  of you said she'd be as good as another  yoke of oxen to me.  First Thing She Did."  "Was she? The first thing she did  was to get peevish and find fault with  everything. Then she had liver complaint and back aches and consumption  and I don't know what else, but I paid  out nigh $500 for patent medicines In  two.years, and then she died just at  the time apples was ready for drying.  I ain't n-sayiug a word against her,  'cause she's dead, but she wasn't no  more the woman I took her to be and  all the folks said she was than buckwheat Is like corn.  "I'm now a-living with No. 4. I'm  a-saylng so 'cause you all know so and  'cause most of you remarked wheu 1  was courting her that I ortcr be sent  to the idiot asylum. I hain't never said  anything back. I take it that it's for a  man to say whether he'll quit the Job  at one or two wives or to keep on the  fourth. This one, as you know, was  an old maid, and 1 was two years  courting and finding out about her. 1  hain't got but jest a- word to say. I  started out by saying that we men  folks.don't know women folks and  never will, and to prove It I'm declaring that when J go home this evening  I don't know whether my wife will  precipitate herself into my arms aud  give me a kiss or whether she'll precipitate rue outdoors and give me a  kick.

If a  census on the subject could be taken I  am sure it would be found that the  majority of married people jog along  very comfortably aud are much happier in their united state than they  possibly could have been had they remained unmarried.

THE POPULAR  GIRL  For people ai the North West who  desire to spend the winter in a milder  olimatc tho Canadian Pacific have arranged a series of low rate excursions  for cortain dates in December and  January to Vuncouver and Victoria.  Self CcRGciouaness Is a Great Obstaclt  to Success.  What makes a girl popular in society? is a very difficult question to answer. Popularity, like success, Is a  very Incomprehensible quality. One  girl may be very pretty, fairly agreeable, of superior social standing-and  undeniably accomplished and yet fail  to attract, and another without half  her advantages Is a decided favorite.  Self consciousness is a great obstacle to success. The girl who is continually thinking of herself is handicapped at the outset. A frank, happy  young woman, "with no" nonsense  about her," showing her enjoyment  in her face, establishes at once"a magnetic current with those around her  who cannot help feeling a sympathetic  pleasure in her enjoyment.  Straying attention Is a very, great  damper to social intercourse. If a  man Is talking to a girl and he finds  that she only half hears what he says,  smiling vaguely in a conventional fash-  Ion, lie feels bored at once.  "Nine-tenths of the girls one talks  lo nt a. dance are completely self absorbed." said a man who had been discussing tljjs very question, "and it Is  that that makes them so uninteresting.  You can see plainly that they are only  thinking of their hair, their gown  of possible partners or of an escort to  supper. Their smiles are mechanical  ���������ind rrreanlngless, their answers Inane."  liiifilif  iililifi  MAKING  A  DICTIONARY.  The Colossal Task of Selecting tha  Words to  Be  Used.  One of the men who compiled a big  dictionary talks as follows about the  way the work was done: '  From the largest dictionary of the  language all the words were diligently  copied, and then each of the smaller  dictionaries was checked off iu turn  against this growing list. When the  dictionaries had been thus exhausted  ��������� all the living authors of works that  had an undoubted standard value were  secured to contribute froto their works  such words ns they had used that were  not found in the general dictionaries. .  In addition to this, the services of  about S0O readers were utilized, among  whom was distributed all the standard  literature from Chaucer to the present  time. These readers were instructed  to report such words as seemed to be  new and not found In the ordinary dictionaries aud to locate them by page  and Hue that they might be inspected,  each in its own context. For this purpose prepared blanks were furnished.  Specialists in various trades, arts and  professions were also' invited to send  sucli words,belonging to the technique  of their vocabularies as might be familiar to them, but which were not In  general use, and so had not found their  way into the dictionaries.  It will be seen that the collection of  a vocabulary ou such a plan, though  there were many helpers, was a long  and laborious task, Involving a great  amount of correspondence, which extended literally all over the world.  Added to this was the nearly appulllug  task of editorial and clerical ��������� work,  merely to sift and organize these contributions. It Is not to bo imagined  that words so gathered could or should  be all Included. An organized staff of  editors and philologists was required,  who passed upon the eligibility of each  word.  The conservative care exercised In  determining the scope and limits of a  vocabulary can be. inferred from tho  fact that in one of these offices, after  a "dragnet" had gathered over 500,000  words, more than 200,000 were finally  rejected. These included words that  were still too' completely foreign to  merit a place in an English vocabulary, all the "used but once" words,  considerable slang language and many  technical terms that had good reasons  against them. The fixing of a date before which words should be excluded,  except on certain conditions, resulted  in throwing -"out many.'  When words have been selected for a  dictionary, several distinct things must  be done with them. They must be divided Into their proper syllables, and  the right syllables must be supplied  with accents. They must be pronounced by the use of certain arbitrary  signs used iu a respelling of them to  indicate the powers of the letters they  contain. They must be defined in all  the senses iu which they have actually  been found used in literature. In the  case of a primary form the origin of  the word ia other languages���������that Is,  Its etymology--must be given.���������Chicago  News.  No Stain on His Record.

AN INTELLIGENT ANIMAL  Hunter With Sagacity Almost of a  - Human Being.  A horse which is better than a  watchdog, and has a speaking tube  installed between his table and his  owner's bedroom, is an example of  anirnnl intelligence which it would  be hard to excel even in a circus.  The horse referred to belongs to  Mrs. Wadharn-Petre of Maida-valp,  England, and is an old bay hunter of  fifteen hands. As a consequence of  good treatment and petting for several  years he has developed a really remarkable sagacity.  His name is Birthday, and when  called he opened two doors, raising  the latches with his nose, and came  out in  response to the summons.  Birthday's stable is unq^er part ol.  his owner's house, and Mrs. Wadham-  Petre has had a trap-door made in  the floor of her room on the second  storey and a speaking tube about five  inches in diameter fixed to run  straight down to the stable, where the  horse's end of the tube is over his  manger.  Birthday is often heard neighing or  whinnying in the night, and, -said  Mrs. Wndham-Petre,-"there are about  thirty different calls he can make.  If I go to' the trap-door and say,  "Hello, boy,' I can tell by the tone of  his response whether he-is disturbed  by anything or is hungry, or merely  quite   comfortable  and   content. ���������  "The other night we heard him  neighing persistently, and my husband nt last went down to see what  was,the matter. The horse had evidently been disturbed, and, though  we fourrd no traces of undesirable  visitors, it is certain somebody had  been prowling around.' Birthday is  even better than a watchdog, because he knows exactly who is approaching the house by the sound of  the  footsteps."  TEA  is the Most Delicious and Haf poshing Tea in the wopM..

Dogs  On  the  Battlefield.  Since dogs have proved to be such  able assistants to the ' Paris police  corps why shouldn't they be trained  to re-enioice the hospital and ambulance' service of the French army?  I he advantages of this innovation  have been set forth at some length  by Dr. Biehelorme and Capt-." Tolet,  of the French army, in a volume  which has iuat been published. It is  entitled the "Dog as an Aid to the  Sanitary Corpsi."  That dogs-should be taught to seek  out the wounded on the battlefield is  no new idea. ,The experiment was  tried with success at the time of the  Boer war, and at the battle of Cha-  Ho in the conflict in the Far East  three dogs .sent out by the German  Alliance discovered twenty-three soldiers who had been given up for lost.  In 1890, by the order of the' German  War Minister, two dogs were -added  to the sanitary corps of one of the  crack regiments. Since . then clubs  for the training of dogs in war time  have been formed in Dresden,  Cologne, Cobouig, Aix-la-chapelle and  Neuwied. Similar societies have been  organized in Holland, Sweden and  Italy. In fact all of the European  countries have turned their attention  to the subject at one time or other  except France.  Dr. Bichelonne and Capt. Tolet urge  the military authorities to repair this  omission. There are many good  breeds of dogs in France which would  take .easily  to the  military, training.  It is an undisputed fact! these au  thors say, that after an engagement  there are' many wounded and dying  who are overlooked by tlie nurses  and litter-carriers. A case in point  is quoted. At the battle of Rezon-  ville-Gravelotte in 1870, two injured  soldiers lay for three days in a ravine. The ground had been gone  over many times by the ambulance  service and yet they had rrot been  found. In instances like this the  usefulness of dogs as scouts is unquestioned.  It is a wonder that European armies  have not awakened long before this  last decade to the importance of dogs  as practical helpers in war time, the  author thinks. On the battlefield the  role of these canine assistants would  be very much the same as that of  the St. Bernard dogs���������and they have  been rescuing snowbound travelers  for several  centuries.  Pain Is a Punishment.���������Pain is a  protest of nature against neglect of  Uve bodily health, ugainst carelessness regarding tlie physical condition.  It steals in 'at. the first opportunity  and takes up its abode in a man and  it is sometimes difficult to eject it.  Dr. Thomas' Kclectric Oil will drive  it out in short order. Pain cannot stay  where it i.s "used, but immediately  goes away.  "Ethelinda seems to prefer the  most classical pieces she can find,"  suid the fond mother.

The ^scheme was initiated by Mr.  E. Stewart, soon after his appointment to the office of Superintenden,  of Forestry, and in 1901 tlie distribution was begun. That year 44 settlors v.'ero supplied with trees, the  number of trees sent out being fifty-  eight thousand eight hundred (58,800)  Since then the work has greatly iii ���������  creased, the numbers sent out in sub  sequent years being as  follows:  408,000 to   415 applicants  920,000 to   628 applicants  1,800.000 to 1027 applicants  2,000,000 to 1120 applicants  2,034.000 to  From the beginning of the scheme  a system of inspection has been carried on nnd has without doubt contributed largely to its success. - The  fact that the giving of the seedlings  is followed up by sending inspectors  around -to see that .they are properly  planted and tended cannot help proving-a stimulus to the proper care of  them.  The first work of the inspectors i?  to see land in which it is proposed to  plant trees the following year, an.  make sure that it has been .properly  prepared; this is done the summer-  after the""application has been made.  The spring after this visit, trees a:.1  sent' those who have properly prepared land, and the summer after thi?  short I the inspector makes a second visit  to see that the trees are being properly cared for. During the summer of IflOG, six inspector* were employed.  The success of the tree plantations  has been very encouraging. A couple  of years ago the inspectors were in-,  structed to visit all who had received  trees since the distribution started.  As a result it was found that about 85  per cent of the trees were dong well,  the percentage rarely falling below 75  and often running over 90.  All the trees distributed, with the  exception of the cottonwoods, are now  grown at trie Forest Nursery, Indian  Head, Saskatchewan.  to  The London Tribune prints an ode  an egg.   Good or bad?

Professor Robert Koch, upon whom  Emperor William recently conferred  the title of Excellency in recognition  of his services in discovering the origin  and treatment 'of. the African disease  known as "sleeping sickness," has set  forth in an official report the details  of his prolonged investigations in the  Victoria Nyanza region. He supplements the general results previously  cabled by giving a statistical- comparison showing that only about eight  per cent, of the "sleepers" treated  with an atoxyi injection died, whereas  the untreated "sleepers" who arrived  at the mission stations mostly died.  Prof. Koch's investigations showed  that the Glossinn palpalis fly, which  causes tho "sleeping sickness," subsists on the blood of reptiles and  animals, and cannot live without it  lor more than three or four days. The  microscope showed that the blood  sucked by the flics was chiefly that  of crocodiles The professor therefore recommends a bounty on crocodile:' eggs in order to encourage the  natives to exterminate them. This,  it is added, will be comparatively  eaey. since the crocodiles have certain well-marked breeding grounds in  the Nyanza district, where tho eggs  ftan  easily  be  collected.  Blind Men Get Lost In Fog.  Nothing has such a bewildering effect as fog, says a London exchange.  Only animals which find their way by  scent can get about in it with any certainty. Birds are entirely "confused  by it. Tame pigeons remain all day  motionless and half asleep, huddled  up. either in or just outside their  houses. Chickens remain motionless  for hours during heavy fogs. No bird  sings or utters a call, perhaps be-  .-ause it fears to betray its whereabouts to an unseen foe. During one  very thick fog a blind man was found  wandering about a certain district of  London. This man was in the habit  o' coming up every day from a suburb, carrying notes and parcels, and  had scarcely ever lost his way before,  Asked why he had gone astray, for  he was quite blind, and it was supposed that weather would have made  no difference, he said thut in a fog  the ground "sounded quite differently."

Jimmie Roberts, the ten-year-old  soli of William Roberts, a Big Beaver  township farmer, teased a twenty-  pound turtle by poking sticks at it,  but getting too close it seized his  leg, and all efforts to make it let go  proved futile. Red pepper was thrown  into its eyes, kerosene was squirted  into its mouth, and finally a red hot  poker was trust between its jaws, but  still it held on. Finally Mrs. Roberts grabbed the turtle's tail, and while  she pulled until its neck was well  stretched, the farmer cut off its head  with the carving-knife. This.detached Uie .turtle from the boy, but the  jaws retained their hold on his leg.  The parents were afraid to attempt I  cutting the head loose, so Mr. Roberts, '  Jimmie and the turtle's head got into  tlm buggy and hurried to the office of  Dr. E. C. Kerwin, of Homewood. The  physician succeeded in cutting the  turtle's head from the boy's leg. An  ugly hole that will be a long time in  healing was left.

Bented- with the -freedom of the City  t>f London recently, was described by  Sir Joseph Dimsdale as the great  Pha-raoh of Egypt.  Tubing up the cue, the ex-dictator  of Kgypt also made a few compliments. He inferred to tlie King as  "that very eminent diplomatist,"  praised Lord Lansdowne and Sir Edward Grey for their excellent conduct  of foreign affairs, and said a good  word, for Sir Eldon Gorst, his successor.  Those people who criticized the  Anglo-Russian Convention "because of  the internal policy of the Russian  Government he reminded that one of  the surest methods of achieving success was to pay attention exclusively  to one's own business. The English  people were rather prone to incur the  reputation abroad of offering advice  about matters which did not concern  them.  Turning to the question of the  enormous influx of gold into Egypt  of recent years���������$65,000,000 more than  the exports in the last four years���������  Lord Cromer said a great deal went  into jewelry. Moreover, hoarding was  carried on in Egpyt to an extent  which appeared almost incredible to  Europeans. A little while ago an  Egyptian died leaving a fortune of  $400,000. The whole of that was  found in gold coin in the cellar.  Again, a substantial yeoman bought  a property for $125,000. Half an hour  after the contract had been signed  he appeared wth a train of donkeys  bearing on their backs the whole of  that sum in coin, which had been  buriedlin his garden.  There could be no doubt that the  practice of hoarding was carried on  to an excessive degree. Savings banks,  increased circulation of paper money,  and additional banking facilities  would gradually wean the natives  from this uneconomic habit.  The gradual expansion of local  government in Egypt had his entire  sympathy, but with the Egyptian  Nationalists, who existed in Cairo as  also in Calcutta and in Dublin, he  did not think it was possible to deal.  They would not be conciliated snve  on terms which in India and Ireland  spelt political suicide nnd irr Egypt  would involve n relapse to the mis-  government and disorder of the past.  He noticed the almost culpable  folly of an itinerant M.P?, Mr. Keir  Hardie. had incited the ill-regulated  enthusiasm of a portion, and that certainly by no means tho wisest portion, of the community in Bengal.  The agitators of India, ho did not  doubt, would be kept well in hand  by the firm sagacity of the Viceroy  and the eminent statesman (Mr. Mor-  ley) who now presided at the India  j Office  Lord Cromer declared irr conclusion  that the Government should come  down with a heavy hand upon the  extremists should they overstep the  limits of the law, and not be deterred  by their presence from adopting such  reforms as were calculated to satisfy  the aspirations of all moderate and  reasonable men.  iVIinard's Liniment cures Distemper..

As the bridge  is about completed, the .correspondence in connection with its.  location cannot now be-of very  much importance. A return of  the number of Molson Bank ������20  bills required to secure Mr. N11-  den's majority at Rock Creek  would be of vastly more interest-  to the people here.  .'  British Columbia and the Japs.  The attitude of the British' .Columbia Liberals on the subject of  Japanese immigration is soiuevvhat  amusing. In parliament the other  day, Mr. Macpherson, who i.s their  spokesman, entered a fervent protest against the passage of what is  called the .Natal Act by the  Legislature of this province. This  gentleman holds that a measure  which restricts the Japaneso influx'  by imposing au educational test  would be offensive to Japan. ..At  the same time Mr. Macpherson,  speaking for his friends in the  West, denounced the Government  of British Columbia for not resigning when tho Lieutenant-Governor withheld his assent from the  Natal Act passed at the last session  of the Legislature.  Now, if it is not desirable that  a Natal Act should be passed, why  should tho Governor of British  Columbia be blamed for not assenting to the bill of ,hist.year, '��������� and  why should tlie MqBrido .Government-be rebuked for lieglectiijg to  resign when the' aflse.tife "of. the  Governor was witheld?. Thef-jdea  that a provincial .government  should abandon the trust reposed  in it by the people simply because'  the Governor fails to make operuti vr  bill  for the action of the Federal   Government.    If tho Federal  Government approves the bill, it  can call  it into operation by notice formally  addressed to the Provincial Government.    Jt follows then that if  tlio  action  of Governor   .Dunsmuir  in  reserving the bill was in  any   way  contrary .to   the   public  interests,  the Oltiiwa Government- was bound  (0 remedy tho error.    Kor not taking action', the Ottawa  Ministers,  and Mr. Teiiipleinan in  particular,  are   responsible.     They   are    the  blameworthy   parties.    But   aside  from that fact, what safety   would  there be for the. people if a Government were forced to resign   whenever a Governor   chooses to hold  over a provincial act  for  the  consideration of Ottawa?   A  Government is elected by the. people and  has a majority in  the LegHature.  A   Governor   appointed    by    the  Ottawa Ministers,  who are  hostile  to the Provincial Government, can  at any moment withhold his assent  to a provincial Act.    If a  Government   in list   resign    whenever  an  appointee of the Ottawa Administration withholds his assent to  an  Act of the Legislature, there  can  te no Provincial   Government except   such   as   the   Federal    men  approve of.    All that the   Ottawa  politicians would   have   to do  in  order   to produce   a   turnover   in  Ontario,   or   in   Manitoba,   or  in  British   Columbia,    would    be   to  telegraph to the  Governor, saying  that they hear ho will reserve such  and such a measure and  asking  if  they can rely upon him to  do so.  "\yith  this   hint   before   him, the  Governor   can    withhold,  assent,  whereupon, according to the  Macpherson   doctrine, the    provincial  Ministers must resign.  The constitutional lore which  makes the elect of the. people in  any province subject, to the whim  of the Ottawa politicians, through  their representative in the gubernatorial cnair is too absured for  consideration. Besides, it is well  to remember that .the provincial  Governor is the ollicer of the  Federal Government. It is that  Government, and not the Provincial  Government, that must hold- him  responsible for his act, and must  punish him if he goes wrong. The  appeal to British Columbia to refrain from passing the Natal Act  again because Japan has undertaken to restrict immigration'into  Canada is, however, the most  ridiculous feature of the Liberal  sitiialionin respect to this question.  If Japan is" going to restrict the  movement of population to Canada,  the Natal Act will be very helpful  to it.
