A fTCH indignation ts expressed at the action of the  "A * ���*���   Chief of Police in sending out postal cards calling  ou those who have not been vaccinated to present themselves at the office of the city health officer on  or  before April 22, there to undergo the operation of vaccination.   No doubt the Chief of Police is acting under  instructions; indeed, his record as chief proves him to  'be a man incapable of such a ridiculous act as  to insist on vaccination when there is not such a  thing as  a case of smallpox in the city.    There are many people who have strong prejudices  against   vaccination,  but ; r the genenl good, when smallpox is epidemic,  it i< deemed wise to resort to a species of tyranny and  insist on vaccination,    just now there is no necessity  lor compulsory vaccination, aud the authorities should  countermand the order at once.   Otherwise, the medical profession may be left open to tlie imputation that  grovelling motives of self-interest are at the bottom of  * he latest order u> vaccinate.    As regards  the   order  'hit those who have   already   been   vaccinated   must  show a certificate from the nhysician   performing  the  operation, or else be vaccinated again, it is simply ridiculous..   There   are   dozens   of. cases, where citizens  ���have'.been vaccinated within the past ..few years thousands of miles from here, and a certificate of the fact  .would be almost impossible to obtain.    If compulsory  vaccination   is insisted  upon  at this time, it -may be  useful in the way of opening the eyes  of our  people  to the slender thread/o.:') which, is suspended our niueh-  ���boasted,libertv..  Among the many unsettled questions.tbafcluttered  up the landscape after Brother Sheldon got through  with the newspaper business was that one of how long  an ordinary man should be allowed to get the paper  after his subscription has run out. Will some  inspired prophet kindly arise in the land and settle  this vexed question. ���. . '  The arrivals ot Japanese hi Canada are, increasing  at an alarming rate. There has been a total of 2,871  Japanese landed at Victoria since the; first day of  January. ��� " ;  Canada's national game is becoming very popular  in the United States. Princeton University has organized a lacrosse club and great interest is being  manifested in the game. Cricket is also played at  this college, but not with the same enthusiasm as lacrosse.  So far no one has yet been discovered who will  undertake the grave responsibility of acting as chairman at Mr. Martin's meeting next Monday night.  The attempt of certain Canadian Sabbatarians to  have the Dominion exhibit at Paris closed on Sundays, is another illustration of the ends to which fan-  aticism will carry some people Why not insist on  the Mohammedans observing our Sabbath as their  day of rest.  Mr \y. IL Ktxrs, for fourteen years manager of  the Victoria Colonist, has resigned that position and  will probablv embark in some other enterprise in the  near future.    There are verv few men in Canada bet-  *  ter qualified for the position of manager of a  newspaper than Mr. Elits.    He knows the business  from  Thh Vernon   News referring  to the   recent Liberal convention at the city  of Vancouver, remarks :..  ' 'Those who hoped that out of the big Liberal Convention, which--' last week met at  Vancouver, would  come some gleam of light that might make more clear  the  immediate political future, have met with  the  most complete disappointment.    It was thought that  something approaching to a definite decision regarding the adoption, by the Liberal party, of the party  line idea, would be reached at such a large gathering  and that the aspirations of Mr. Martin to assume tlie  leadership of the party would either have met  with  endorsement or  rejection.     But   neither of   those  matters   were settled.   Nothing whatever   was accomplished.    The delegates met, fought and parted.  Amidst an uproar that can hardly be described sev-  ' ";-;*!

Joseph Martin  V an<l his side partner, Hon. Smith Curtis,  pened the campaign at Saanichton, Thursday evening last, and will stump the country from now until  election day. There were present at this meeting,  the other members of the Cabinet, but Joe and Curtis  succeeded so well in tiring out the, farmers present,  tint the others members of the Cabinet were denied  an opportunity of airing their eloquence. Among  those present from Victoria were Lord Brltimore,  John McMillan and \V. J.'Iianna, who are endeavoring by hook or by crooic to foist themselves as representatives on Jan already overburdened public.  It is manifest that Joe Martin was grasping at straws  when he took up W. J. Hasina. No doubt he had in  mind Senator Mark Hauna, who so successfully  placed William McKiuleyiii the Presidential chair of  ���the United States* aud hopes that by some marvel  .'louschance W. J. H una may succeed in hypnotizing  .the people of British  Columbia  into supporting  his  ��*>  ro vein menu  1 s  In the course of his remarks at Saauinchton the  Premier asserted that be hachtmple evidence to prove  'the late Finance Minister guilty of ail that he had  charged in the House, and which Mr. Crttou had  been afraid to have a partial committee of his own supporters invesitigaie. He further charged that since  the dismissal of the Government the record book of  the Executive Council in which the falsified entry by  Mr. Cotton had been scored out by Dr. McKeehnie,  lr..d bcm._removed from the public offices, although a  record and property o( the Province. He had traced  nosscssion to Mr. Hume, who had refused to return  it It would thus be seen how Mr. Cotton had taken  care to have the book in question out of the archivest  but was too foxy to take it himself, preferring to "pu  poor Hume up to do it,  ����  Hon, i>. M. Kberts has made the announcement  luat he will seek re-elect ton in his old constituency -  'S.hi ta Victoria���which he has so successful y an I  faithfully represented for the \ ast ten years. The  electorate of S mt i Victoria cannot do better than reelect Mr. Kl>erts.  There appears to be a little dissatisfaction among  the Conservatives here in regard to the action of a  recent meeting in declaring for party lines. Some  assert that by the declaration for party Hues that the  Liberals will be bound to accept the challenge and  will therefore line up and support Joe Martin. Tlik  is a mistaken idea as the anti-Martinites will, under  no circumstances, party lines or no party lines, support Mr. Martin, As a matter of fact they would prefer to see the Conservatives in power in this Province  than have it said that it was a Liberal government  and Joseph was the leader.  i-' ��� .._.������-  .  The stand taken by A. H. McPhillips it? adhering  to the Westminster platform, is commendable. Mr.  McPhillips has always been a devout Conservative  and has done much for the party, and it is to be hoped  that the party will not forget the services rendered,  when the convention is held to select standard bearers  for this city.  There is one matter which the papers have overlooked while discussing the sublime qualities of that  eminent jurist and Unionist leader, Samuel Perry  Mills, and that is the wonderful resemblance between  Judge Mills aud H. R: H. the Prince of Wales, a remarkable peculiarity, Avhich, it is understood, is a  source of gratification to. both Mr. Mills and the  Prince. Be that as it may,, a, story is told of Mr.  Mills,-or perhaps more respectfully speaking, Lord  Baltimore, that while on a visit to a neighboring  American city, on sseirig��� him in his carriage, some  of the prominent business men, were struck with his  remarkable resemblance to the heir to the British  throne. In fact these men conjectured that it was  the Prince travelling incognito. A select. committee  was appointed to wait on H. R. H. Mr. Mills ad^  mitted that he belonged to the nobility* b\it: explained  that he was not the future King of Great Britain and  Ireland..' 4iBlarst mybloomin1 bloody byes,'* said a  ;Cockuey waiter who was a silent observer of-the  whole proceedings, "if hi didn't think.it was.Halbert  Hedward 'imself."  If the C. P. R. paidjoe Martin $15,060 vto leave  Manitoba, how much would the vin habitants ofBritish  Columbia contribute to get .rid of him? There is no  doubt but that this Province would* present: sLpurse  of double that amount to Joseph to continue on his  westward pilgrimage and take up his abode in the  Flowery Kingdom. :   .  John McMillan and W. J. Hanna appear confident  that they will carry the city of. Victoria under the  leadership of Joseph Martin, but Dr. Lewis Hall does  not like the outlook, and is afraid that the.^electorate  do not fully appreciate the great advantage of having  a moral man like the Premier at the helm. As  Charlie Beaven would say, lltobe honest about it,"  the atmosphere will be very chilly when Victoria City  endorses Joseph Martin.  From present appearances, there will be a labor  candidate in the field.   It is understood that a requisition is being circulated asking Mrw George A. ^hade  to gp before the people.    While Mr.   Sha^  is not  anxious to occupy a seat  in the ^gisla^u^  half of the Labor party he might be prevailed up^^  sacrifice his owu^^p^  conversant with tlie labor problems, and would besui  acquisition to ^  tion, he is a good fellow and very popular, and if &  labor candidate can be elected in Victoria, George  Shade is the man.  1      ���>  ' ''8  1 - .

THE NELSON ECONOMIST  ..'i  CHRONICLES  CHAPTER   1.  (-  i. And it came to pass that Ginnis was appointed  ruler over the land of Columbia.  2. Now Ginnis loved Joseph more than all his  children, and made him a coat of many colours.  3. And "when Joseph's brethern saw that their  father loved him more than all his brethern, they  hated him and could not speak peaceably to him.  4. Aud Joseph dreamed a dream and he told it  his brethern ; and they hated him vet the more.  s. And he said unto them. Hear, I pray you, this  ��� beam I have dreamed :  6. For behold, we were binding sheaves in the  field, and lo�� my sheaf arose,.and also stood upright;  and-heboid, your sheaves stood around about and  made obeisance to my sheaf.  7. And his breifaerii said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us ? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for  his dreams and for his words. ��� "    #  8. And it came to pass, when Ginnis, the ruler ol  the land'of Columbia, learned that Joseph's brethern  hated him, he could not refrain himself aud he  cried  "U  *.  Cause everv man to go out from my house.  9. And when Joseph returned to the laud ol Vic  11 nni the lstm\ of Van he brought evil report of his  brethern.  10. And Ginnis was much wroth and said, There  is none so discreet and wise as thou art:  u. Thou shalt be orer my house and according  unto thy word shall all my people be ruled; only in  1 he throne will I be greater than thou.  12. And Ginnis said unto Joseph. See, I have set  thee oyer all the land of Columbia,  13. There was much discussion among the people  ��� if Columbia and thev cried out, We will not have this  man Joseph lb""fiaV<& ~" dominion over us, for Mani-  tobitcs arc ;tn abomination to Columbites, but Ginnis  heard not the supplications of the people.  14. Aud Ginnis spake unto Joseph, saying: If  thou knowest any men of activity among the Columbites, then make them rulers in my house.  15. And Joseph brought iu Jim the son of Vale  and set him before Ginnis: and Ginnis blessed him.  16. A ml 1 im; the son of Yate, blessed Ginnis and  went out from before him.  ���17...- And Joseph placed Jim, the son of Yate, and  Kave him a possession in the laud of Columbia* in the  best  of the   land, in the land of Vic, as Ginnis had  commanded.;- ������'���:��� ���'::'^::;-;''.���:':'';"': ���'..''-'      "���'������: V;>  18/   And it came to pass that Joseph went into the  land of the Green Wood, and  whilst  theri did   see  Kurts, a Manitobite. ���  ���19/   And Joseph said unto Kurts, Come with me,  tarry   notV and thou shalt dwell tit the   land ot   Vie  and thou shall be near unto me:  20. And there will 1 nourish thee: lest thou and  thv household and all that thou hast shall come to  poverty.  deaf ear to the entreaties of Joseph, but fell on his  neck aud wept: and Joseph wept upon his neck.  22. And Joseph brought in Kurts before Ginnis,  and it pleased Ginnis well, and Ginnis blessed  him.  23. And Joseph gave Kurts a possession in the  land of Vic as Ginnis had commanded.  24. And the people of Columbia cried forth in re-  elii3u and said, We shall not have our possessions  iven unto the Manitobites, but Ginnis heeded not  their cries, but said unto them, as it is written in the  Greek, Joesalrit.  25. And Joseph went into the land of Aggas, and  whilst there he saw a son of one of the patriarchs,  whose name was Be.  26. And Joseph spake thus unto Be, Come out ot  the land of Aggas, for the famine is sore in thy land  and thou hast no pasture for thy flocks.  ��� 27. But the Aggasite heard him not, for he was  sore afflicted.  28. And when Joseph saw that Be, the Aggasite,  understood him not: he spake,unto him by an interpreter.  '29, And Joseph and the, Aggasite journeyed from  the land of Aggas to the land of Vic.  30. And when they had arrived at the land of  Vic, they went to the house of Ginnis, the ruler of  Columbia, and Ginnis blessed Be, the Aggasite..  31. And Joseph journeyed to the land of Nimo,  and whilst there didst meet a young man in sore distress whose name was Rider, from the land of Cumber.  32. And Rider thus spake unto Joseph: Hast thou  no possessions that thou canst give unto me iu the  land of Vic, for the people ol my own land have taken  from me all my flocks and hcrdsand ail that I had,  and I am in sore need ?  33. And Joseph answered, Verily, verily, I shall  make thee a ruler in the house of Ginnis. Come with  me, and I will give you the good of the land of Vic,  and ye shall eat of the fat of the land. Aud Rider  bowed down his head and made obeisance.  34. Aud forthwith Joseph and Rider went unto th  laud of Vic, and  to the house of Ginnis, and   Rider  was made ruler over the shekels in the house of Ginnis, and Ginnis blessed Rider.  35. And it came to pass that Ginnis, the  ruler  of  Columbia, assembled together the rulers of his house,  saying unto them:    Proceed throughout the land of  Columbia and proclaim the virtues  of the   house  of  Ginnis,\nd see that ye fall not by the wayside.  1.
