Jane Bartlett not a Vampire
In a sermon on  the evil of the
theatre the Rev. Dr. Penfield Stur-
gis, rector of fashionable St. Mar-
tins-in-the-Lane, refers directly to
this year. That place will be heard Jaue Bartlett and t>e grand opera
"Zaporah" of which she is fehe star,
to the quick she accepted
the challenge he had given, determined to make him''eat his sermon,
word for word."
On the strength of the rector's
sermon the Mayor closed the opera
but the Rev. Dr. Penfield having
had a chance, to study Miss Bartlett
loops was  killed afe the front in  at close range, realizes her bigness.
He discovers that out of the goodness of her heart she had been
quietly educating a number of
poor girls, feeding hungry com-
pot-a-!. aud lending a kindly ear to
the downhearted.
Rep3utai_fe, he decides fehat he
owes her an apology which he
made in an open letter to the newspapers. At this his congregation
arises in arms and to preserve his
dignity the young rector offered to
marry the prima donna. She accepted, thus having carried out her
threat. At this point the story

At Somme Fritz seems to have
fallen into the consomme.
The country did not gain anything by the defeat of Tom Taylor
and Lome Campbell.
It will not be necessary to have
a close season for Tories in B. C.
They will all come out of the woods
at the next Dominion election.
The Tories won a great victory
last Thursday. Without their
assistance the Liberals would not
have beaten the Bowster autocracy.
It is quite likely fehat Greenwood will soon have a cabinet
minister, No better man than Dr.
MacLean was "elected in the entire
province lasfe Thursday.
Again Parker Williams has been
elected in spite of all the abuse that
was heaped upon him by his enemies. This province has room for a
few more legislators like Parker.
In this province it is a feast or a
famine in politics. Once we had
too many Tories in Victoria, and
now we have hardly half enough.
The plank has teetered too much
to one side.
So Bill Hunter was elected in
the Slocan last week. Rather hard
to defeat the man who built the
lirst steamboat in the Slocan, and
packed his blankets over many a
hard trail in the early days.
B. C. Mines
The Gold Commissioner at Kaslo
has received 24 applications to
prospect reverted crown-granted
mineral claims in the Slocan and
Ainsworth camp.
About 23 years ago some mining
experts said, that the mines in the
Slocan would not go down, and
that the camp would not be a permanent one. Time and work has
proved fehat they were wrong, for
paying ore has been found in the
Slocan at a depth of 2300 feet.
How much deeper ore will be found
is nofe yet known, but that is deep
enough to prove, that the future
of the district will line up with the
greatest lead, silver and zinc
camps fehat the world has ever
known,
Patriotic Fund
Let us hope that Bowser gets a
seat in the House. The Little
Napoleon is too young for St.
Helena, although his health might
be benefitted if he would keep out
of politics for a few years.
After hoping and striving for
20 years, John Keen of Kaslo, has
at last been elected to fehe legislature. He will be the oldest, and
one of the mosfe lively members afe
Victoria. We appoint John, Minister of Mines. If he will not accept the position we will give ife feo
Jim Thompson, the great; organizer and diplomat of Phoenix.
The votes of the people in British Columbia last week,   plainly
showed that the majority were out
of sympathy, with Bowser and his
bunch   of   phonographic   records.
The result also  proved,  thafe it is
easy feo defeat a government in hard
times,  especially if ife is   tainted
wifeh graft, corruption,  autocracy,
and the forcing of obnoxious officials upon  a long-suffering public.
Bufe fehe pendulum  has swung too
far fehe other  way,  and the province is again beset wifeh fehe dangers that arise from  a one-sided
government, and unless the Liberals take. a lesson  from  the snow-
slide fate of the Bowser government they will climb fehe shaft five
years  from  now.     This province
musfe have a sane, honest and progressive business government.    If
the Libs  can   furnish   the   goods
feheir seats are secnre in Victoria
for   many   a   year.    But,  human
nature is  the Fame, be it Tory or
Lib, and it will be  extremely difficult as  time  goe3    on,    for  the
Libs  and   their   friends  to   keep
from grabbing an undue number of
(he flesh-pots.

Card of Thanks
To  THE  ELECTORS
OF  THE  GREENWOOD  RIDING.
I hereby publicly tend my thanks
to all who so generously and enthusiastically supported me in the
recent election.
A great deal of credit is due the
independent electors of all shades
of political opinion for their support of my candidature. I wish
also to thank fehe Ladies of fehe riding for their assistance. The results of the election in the Province generally is a complete vindication of their judgment.
During my term of office as your
representative it shall be my aim
to so act as to merit a continuance
of thafe confidence.
Yours respectfully,
j. d. Maclean, m. d,
The following is from fehe British
Columbian, and was printed in thafe
paper afe New Westminster, 55
years ago:
The new Land Act, the Pre-emption Consolidation Acfe, 1861, comes
to us like a gushing waterbrook to
the thirsty traveller in the midst of
a vast desert. Good and wholesome laws from Governor Douglas
have heretofore been so few and
far between thafe we have been led
feo exclaim, "Can anything good
come out of Nazareth?" Ife therefore affords us unfeigned pleasure
to be able to record, in general
feermB, onr approval of this Acfe,
and to congratulate His Excellency
upon the success which has attended his efforts in consolidating our
land system, so as to render ife a
complete, simple and intelligible
document. Such we believe to be
fehe character of the document before us.
Were our towns surrounded by
farms under cultivation, the advantages would soon be apparent
in the greatly increased value of
town property, as well as tbe encouraging and inviting prospects
thereby held ont to newcomers,
many of whom turn away in disgust when they see, as at present,
fehe towns closely surrounded by
unbroken forest. The system of
laying out a large area around fehe
towns in suburban lands, and selling these to the highest bidder
without any condition of improvement, is a policy we have always
condemned, the evils of which are
now very much felt in the case of
New Westminster.

Tough Question
A bishop recently addressed a
large assembly of Sunday-school
children, and wound np by asking
in a very paternal way: "And
now, is there any little boy or any
little girl who would like to ask me
a question?"
A thin, shrill voice at the back
of the room called ont: "Please,
sir, why did the angels walk np
and down Jacob's ladder when they
had wings ?"
"Oh. ah, yes���I see," said the
bishop. "And now, is fehere any
little girl who would like to answer this question ?"
Don't hang electric light cords
on nails. The insolation soon
wears off and exposes the live wire.
A short circuit therefrom might
start a fire.
Discovering a crow's nest, Fritz
Helmer, of Winsted, Conn., climbed up and got three eggs in the
pocket of his coat, and on reaching
home hung the coat near the fire
place in which a fire burned all
night. In the morning he heard a
noise and on investigation found
two young crows in his pocket.
The open air is the greatest disease-preventing and disease-curing
agency known.
