EDITORIAL COMMENT.  - As was.anticipated in .these columns last  week, the end of the eight-hour question has  not yet been reached. The Government, has  decided to inaugurate the eight-hour regular  tio.n,, an d thereby hangs a .tale. Itappears.  ��� that the members of .the. Cabinet were divided ���  as to the advisability and method of -introdue- -  -ing the law,, and it is more than suspected that:  one honorable gentleman was strongly opposed  to the enforcement of-the eight-hour provision.  ������-Evidently this. gentleman's opinions do not  carry much weight in the deliberations of the  Cabinet.  However,. pressure  from blatant agitators  and emissaries from the miners' unions of ihe  United States have accomplished their deadly  work, and now we are. brought into conflict  with, conditions ,that should never have prevailed here had it not .been, for the machinations of a demagogue who would rather rule in  hell than serve in.heaven.., That the Government anticipate serious trouble in the settle-  . ment of this perplexing  question is best evidenced by, the fact that three supporters of the  present administration were in the city this  week���evidently determined to commune with  eash other as to the best mode, of procedure.  It was more than a coincidence that brought  Messrs. Hume, Green and Martin here at the  present time.   They probably realize, when it  is too late, that extreme caution must be exercised in dealing with the prevailing economic  conditions in the Kootenay. Indeed, it is  difficult to understand -how a hard-headed  business man like Mr. Green should ever have  consented to theincorporation of such an in-,  iquitous provision in the Mineral Act. ., .     ^ ;  The simple fact of the matter is, the Gov- ���  ernment has blundered in dealing with, this,  as in all other matters affecting the Kootenay.  They have done noting to inspire the confidence of the men who are developing the c6iin->  try, and in order to keep up a show of doing  something th^y have undertaken' legislation  that will earn fcr Martin and his satellites the-  contempt of not only the mine-owner?, but the  men who are supposed to be benefited by the  eight-hour enactment. '  One of the worst features of the situation at;  the present writing is the daily arrival in this  Province of many of the rascals who have recently participated iii the murders and  other.'  crimes in the Coeur d'Alenes.    Every train  brings in a horde of these outlaws, and all appear to be veritable  traveling arsenals.    No  doubt they will be ready here, as there, to enforce their proclamations, even at the point of  the gun.,. Destruction of property being a part  of the plan, of campaign; it is quite likely that  dynamite will be used to enlighten the British  people, as  to the rights of riotous aliens on  Canadian soil.    With dozens of lives sacrificed  and valuable property destroyed, the people of  British Columbia will begin to realize what it  is to have beneficent legislation such as is now  being supplied  by. Joseph Martin  and   his  brainy colleagues.  If the-citjzens.of the United States-now residing in Ro3sland desire to gain .the respect  and" good-will of their neighbors, they will  place an embargo on the idiotic drivel of Eber  C. Smith, the editor of that last vestige of prehistoric journalism,the Rossland Record. If  it pleases our American irie.nds to celebrate  the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence each.recurring Fourth of  July,, and if they breathe words of hatred to  Britain.and Brithish institutione on these occasions, no one feels any the worse. But it is  asking a little too much for Canadians to join  in these festivities. It is a laudable ambition  to instil patriotism in the heart of. "Young  America," biit Canadians do not feel under  any special /obligation to teach love of .country  to their Yankee cousins on British soil.   To  ?*���  the credit of Americans, jt should be said that  they do not force their celebrations down the  throats of their.Canadian cousins, but ,prefer  rather to observe their national festivals in  their own way among themselves., It remained  with Eber C.rSmith to so far forget wliat was  due the country that made it possible for him  to eke,out an existence as to suggest the cele-,  brationof an event which has not the slightest  interest for Canadians. , We fear this fellow,  Smith belongs to that only too large section of  Americans who are, unconsciously bringing  respectable Americans into contempt. But it  would be unfair to accept Eber C.,Smith as a  fair sample of ��n American citizen. The vul  gar proposal of,,this wretched .creature Smith'  tok celebrate the Fourth. of July in Rosaland;  may result, in driving away British and Canadian capital from that hitherto prosperous  city.  The C. P. R. have imported three Swiss  guides for the purpose of conducting exploration and pleasure parties over the Rockj*  Mountains. The guides, whose names are  Charles Clarke, Edward Eenz and Christian  Hasler, are heavil}r built men in the prime of  life and will probably soon-make a reputation  for themselves iirthe Canadian Rockies. They  will be stationed at Banff, in the Canadian Na-  tional Park, the Lakes in the1 Clouds and the  Great Glacier.  We hear a lot about a Conservative reaction  and about the people who are tired and disgusted with Liberal-misrule, but no effort appears to be .made to bring.these tired people  into line. Where are the Conservative, organizations? What are they duing? What propaganda are they distributing? Where do  they appear on the public platform to expose the evils of Liberai government? The  Liberals will never be driven from power unless there is a stronger party to take their  place���and in this case organization is  strength. It is a" very lazy cry that, give  them rope enough and they will hang them:  selves. If there is no one strong enough to  pull on the rope when they have enough, then  hanging will not injure them.  The foregoing is from the "Kamloops Standard, a publication that maybe said to be sound  on the political question. The Standard  takes the line of The Economist, namely,  that the present Conservative party j'r all right  in..many'.ways, but that iii.th*} matter .0 v -  ei'shio it .'.." needs fixinii."

It is believed by,many that the  mantle of leadership must sooner or later fall  upon the shoulders of Hugh John Macdonald.  In the meantime, practically nothing is being  .done in the way of organizing the party. The  educational methods which are essential to the  building up of a political party are being neglected, and no one seems prepared to undertake the responsibility of making a start in  the right direction.  An Arkansas editor has gone into bank-  . ruptcy with assets of $200 and liabilities of  $196,000. It is surmised that the trouble with  this editor originated in permitting every one  to run his paper. Notwithstanding the fact  that he was losing $400 or $500 a month advertising the town, there were men who would  drop in on him every day and tell him he  should get out a better paper. He did get out  a better paper, and then the sheriff took an  inning. Moral���Never get out a ten-horsepower paper in a one-horse-power town.  As a solution of the problem as to whether  or not women should remove their hats in  church, a correspondent suggests Ja return to  the good old custom under which the men sat  on one side of the church and the women on  the other. "In that way," he says, "the  women could get the full benefit of their big  hatsl Women who remove their hats out of  courtesy to those who sit behind them could.  of course, sit where they choose. The others  could have the full benefit of attempting to  see the preacher through a jungle of feathers  and geegaws."  t , 1  1 n  For some days past the Nelson Miner has  been advertising that it will get put an edition  specially devoted to the interests of the Kootenay district. We are free to confess that we  wished the Miner success in its enterprise, but  subsequent developments have somewhat  dampened our enthusiasm. The Tribune,  which professes to be an authority on everything under the sun, says the Miner edition  will not be printed in Nelson at all, but that  the copy will be forwarded to some point where  printing is cheaper. The Economist has registered several objections against sending out of  Nelson" for what can be done just ae well at  home. This paper has, time and again, pointed  out the injury to our merchants by citizens  sending to the department stores of Toronto  and elsewhere for their supplies. This paper  believes in self-preservation. It would be inconsistent to argue that merchants would not  have just as clear a right to get their printing  done out of the city as it would be for printers  \ to send to Toronto for tneir clothing and dry  1 goods. If all the merchants sent to Toronto  and Montreal for their printing, it would be  impossible for printers to successfully conduct  business here. If the Miner gets out a special  edition and prints it in its own office, The  Economist believes it should be encouraged in  its enterprise in every conceivable manner.  Jf   on the  other hand, the Miner gets out a  special edition and has it printed at any outside point, it is at that outside point it should  seek its support. It is ridiculous to argue  that the printing cannot be done here. There  are half-a-dozen printers in Nelson equal to  any in the Dominion of Canada. We trust  the Miner, before asking for support, will en-  lighten its patrons on this point.  The correspondent of the Rossland Miner  who accused the Nelson football club of according unfair treatment to the visiting team,  must have partaken too much of the hospitality provided by the local team. No honest  man in his proper senses would have made  such an accusation.  The Philippines have a population of more  than 10,000,000, it is estimated, while Cuba  has ��arely 1,500,000. What proportion of  this vast number is ready for civilized methods and prepared to participate in and live  under civilized government is not known.  That it is relatively small may be assumed.  Yet, as we recall the tremendous advance of  Japan during the past quarter of a century  we may not too readily yield to the temptation to disparage the honorable aspiration of  any people to be self-governed. Indeed, everything should be done to help them to attain  that end. No rulers, providing they be just  and truly patriotic, can do so much for a people as native rulers; and if the United States  shall find the Aguinaldo idea possible in practice, it cannot do itself greater honor than by  aiding these 10,000,000 brothers to rise to the  dignity and power of a self-governed people,  with all which that involves and contemplates.  Mr. R. E. Gosnell is writing a series of letters for the Victoria Globe, entitled " Through  Southern British Columbia." The contributions are decidedly interesting, and will no  doubt increase the popularity of the Globe, as  well as add to. Mr. GosnelFs reputation as a  writer.  Commenting upon the inadequate manner in  which criminal law is enforced in Quebec, the  Montreal Star says: "The investigation undertaken by Detective McCaskill into the  death of the St. Onge girl in the northern part  of this province, has disclosed an appalling  state of affairs in that district. Crimes appear  to be reported from all sides concerning which  no attempt has been made to convict and  punish the guilty. So exasperated have the  people become at the failure of civilized government to compel respect for the law in that  neighborhood that ugly talk of ' lynching' is  heard; and if the Quebec government does not  display more readiness and ability to do its  duty in the matter, the fair name of Canada  may be darkened in the near future by that  climax of lawlessness in which a people, despairing of protection from the officers of the  law, take their Bafety into their own hands. It  is one of the highest duties of the Provincial  government to see to it that British law is respected in the uttermost parts of the province.  Closely settled regions are pretty well able to  'police* themselves; but it is in out-of-way  regions that the central power must undertake  the work which the local municipal authorities are too weak to accomplish. Certainly  the condition of affairs up in the Gatineau  Valley district should be looked after; and all  excuse for rash action taken out of the hands  of the people here."  Montreal women have formed a league to  secure the cleaning up of the streets of that 9  city. This is a patriotic move, but we hope  the train on the ladies' dresses will not be increased to a length that would interfere seriously with the convenience of the pedestrian.  The Canadian Press Association is planning  an excursion to the Pacific coast. The Nelson  City Council and the Board of Trade should  extend a visit to the Association to visit Koot-  enay's commercial center.  Once upon a time the sapient philosopher  who edits the Tribune remarked that in making new appointments the Governmant should  see to it that only men who were able to earn  their salaries should get the places. Has the  Government followed the advice of the Tribune f   And if not, why not ?  Hon. Fred Hume is visiting. Nelson just  now. Mr. Hume's friends, and they are not  all importunate office-seekers, are always glad  to see him. The Minister of Mines might  combine a little a little business with pleasure  during his visit. Why not look into the  bunco-steering methods that are said to prevail in certain quarters?  Edmond Gosse writes in the North American  Review: " The peculiar gravity of Mr. Kipling's appeal to the English-speaking races���  for even America is surely not unaffected by  his voice���has been met in Great Britain by  the inevitable chorus of imitators. Every  song writer, every leader writer, every story  teller has a little touch of his magic to-day, a  little strain of what the Germans might call  Kiplingismus. His appearance in our literature at this crisis, with its sweeping away of  the graceful, but slightly effeminate, cult of  beauty and harmony which preceded it, is  one of,those extraordinary coincidences which  occur in the history of the mind. For who  shall say whether athleticism created Mr. Kipling, or whether Mr. Kipling has encouraged  athleticism? The two grow side by side, and  to what harvest who can tell? "  The Fort Steele Prospector never misses an  opportunity to champ ion the cause of East  Kootenay. Here is the latest: "Fort Steele  is the natural center of a great mining district, and capital is being attracted here by  the fame of its mines, and the wonderful surface showings in the mountains all about here.  Several sales of greater or less magnitude have  been made within the past few weeks, and a  number of bonds given on property last year  iL.iMujiMmlullMMHIiaittaMttMCI^^ ->~^}  THE ECONOMIST.  kJi  will shortly be. taken up! It does not need a  prophet to foretell the outcome of the district.  It has been in the shade for, a number of  years, eclipsed by the discoveries in Slocan,,  Rossland and other points close to transportation, but now its mineral resources will be  thoroughly expleited. When this is,,done  East Kootenay will not,be in the' tail of the  procession." ,  The Irish Standard, published at Minneapolis, Minn., is one of the most intensely  American newspapers published in the United  States, and thin is the way it views Eber C.  Smith's suggestion to Rosslanders to celebrate  the Fourth of July in Canadian territory:  " Tpie Economist, of Nelson, British Columbia,  does not relish the idea of celebrating the  American Fourth of July in the Queen's dominions.    It sensibly objects to the day being  , made a Canadian national holiday, as. suggested by an Anglo-American contemporary."  This is the opinion of an intelligent American  journalist, and it is respectfully submitted for  the-consideration of  the  lodging-house  man  . who cuts out editorial for that incoherent mess  of antimony and old lead���the Rossland  Record.  If the men who enacted the eight-hour law  knew anything about the development of  mines they should have known that in-the  majority of the mines in the Kootenay it is  absolutely impossible to work three shifts a  day,rf In this connection it might not be out  of place to ask, why is it that the majority of  miners who take contracts insist on working  14ohours a day"?  A curious discovery was recently made by  the workman who were repairing the steamer  Lady of the Lake, which has run on Lake  JVlemphremagog, Vt., for the last thirty years.  A guld rivet was found in the steamers bow,  which was placed there by the late Sir Hugh  Allen, of Montreal, when the boat was first  built. The rivet was four inches long and  must have cost originally about $300.  From the number of railwav schemes now  before the citizens of Victoria, it might be inferred that the capital city aimed at becoming  a great railway center.  The Toronto Telegram has the following:  " All the blessings of the country were charged  up to the Conservative party in   the days  of  -its power.    Good  crops, high  prices due  to  crop failures in foreign parts, were recognized  as the results of Consertative foresight.    There  was just this element of justice in the Conservative claims that, in so far as prosperity was  due to the effect of the National  Policy  upon  interprovincial  trade,  the party  which had  founded  the   National   Policy   could   claim  credit for the results  of its  work.    Canada's  present prosperity is due to the increased  export trade and the increased   demands of the  home market.   The farmers and stock raisers  of Canada are the authors of the  prosperity  which has followed the increased foreign demand for Canadian products.    The prosperity  which has followed the increased demands  of  the home market is surely the results of those  features of the prospective policy  which  the  Conservative party  founded  and  which  the  Liberals did not abandon.    The Laurier Government   did   not,  found   the policy   which  brought Canadian industry into  relationship  to the  demands  of  the home  market.    The  Laurier Government did not develop the  agricultural enterprise which has increased Canada's export trade.    Nobody thinks that Canada owes her control of the horn a market and  her increased export trade to the Laurier Government, and everybody must know that Canada owes the existing prosperity to the control  of the home market and the increased   export  trade.''  Anna Gould's husband' has been ' awarded  $300 damages against a Paris newspaper that  published a false story of a duel in which his  name figured conspicuously. This is the only  money the Count has earned since he married  Miss Gould.  It is observed by some of his supporters that  Mr. Hewitt Bostock is not meeting with much  success in his attempt to, steer bills through  the Dominion Parliament.  Passenger fare   on  the  Congo  railroad is  33 1-3 cents a mile.    ,.'  The Vernon News maVes the following complaint:    " Last year the report of the  Minister of Mines did scant justice to this district;  this year it  is even  worse.    We  know  that  , much fuller information than that  published  was in posession of the Department in   ample  time to have it embodied in the report; why it  was not done is something that we are unable  to account for.    Since  his appointment, the  chief mineralogist has never visited  this district, nor have we yet had the pleasure of see-  ing the Minister of Mines in Vernon.    There  is plenty here to repay a visit and engage  the  attention of  these gentlemen, and  we trust  that before the publication of the next volume  they will take  the   trouble   to   become   acquainted   with  this  important  part  of  the  province."  Notwithstanding the fact that so many  houses have been built in Nelson this spring,  there is scarcely a residence for rent at the  present time.  The Kamloops Standard thus rebukes  Messrs. Deane and Bostock: "The estimates  prove sad reading to the electors of Yale-Cariboo, and sadder still to Kamloops. The nonentity representing us either has no wish to  serve us, or, what is more likely, is incapable,  For some reason, at any rate, Kamloops is  persistently ignored.    Since Mr. Deane repre  sents us in the local house, our pull has entirely vanished., For this we have only ourselves to blame.    If we are fools enoggh to  send Che hired man to look after our interests,  t>       ' '        '  we cannot expect that he will throw over his  principles for us.    But a great deal more was,  and can be reasonably expected from Mr. Bostock.    His wealth places him above the need  of playing second fiddle to anyone.   If he has  a spark of independence about him he would  ignore party and everything else should  the  interests of his constituency  require it.    But  the poor blind fool   seems   perfectly unaware  of  the storm   of  disapproval his consistent  folly   is   raising   up  for him.   He is  absolutely putty in  the hands of his  numerous  flatterers, and should any of his  true friends  point,out the mistakes of his career, instead of  being grateful, he looks upon him  with distrust.   The city of Nelson was ignored in the  way Kamloops has been, by Mr. Bostock's indifference, but luckily for them, a private citizen,  Mr.   Galliher,  has  been able to secure  what Mr. Bostock could not, and strange as it  may  appear, a  private   individual   receives  ,  more attention from  the government than the  sitting member.    Bearing this in mind,  the  citizens of  Kamloops  should represent their  needs direct to the department at'Ottawa, and  not be,put off in the  manner Mr. Fraser said -  Mr. Bostock was.    Persistent worrying is the  !-  only way  to  get  our' small requirements attended to."  Sulo Brani, an island in the Bay of Singapore, claims to possess the largest tin niine in  the world, with an output of 1,200 tons  monthly.  In commenting on mining shares, Money,  one of the best English financial journals,  says: "Among British Columbians there has  been some buying of British Americas. Investors and speculators will do well to watch  the shares in this section, and also look out for  one or two good British Columbia properties,  which, we understand, will shortly be placed  on the market."  Nelson needs better school accommodations  and the Government Bhouid attend to this  matter at once.  The Provincial Government is liberal in  the matter of donation to the Pacific cable.  This cable will only assist in bolstering up  the flagging interests of a few business men at  the coast, and cannot in any way benefit the  whole province. Why not spend a million  dollars in developing the resources of British  Columbia, instead of throwing that sum away  on a Pacific cable.    Charity begins at home.  The latest trust spoken of is the proposed  massing into one corporation of all the makers  of agricultural implements in the country.  _wa8BttS3StfflS��KH&S  ' ' ''"-^ ^-^c%yii=^*jE��svpn5��ryTaatu.L 'i^^VTjfs^wt-sr,.^'^  JKraw-jj .,- THE ECONOMIST.  THE LITTLE CURATE.  The curate and Miss fedmiston were walking down the main street of the village engaged  in conversation, which, being that of a recently affianced pair, need   not   here  be   re-  peated.-  . ��� Miss Edmiston carried herself with an air  of pretty dignity, made none the , less apparent by the fact that she was fully two inches  taller than her lover, the Rev. John St. John.  He was a thin wiry little man, dark haired  and pale complexioned, and was much  troubled in his daily v?alk with'a certain un-  conquearable shyness. * That he should have  won the heart of handsome Nancy Edmiston  wa8 a matter for surprise and discussion  among the residents in Croxbourne.  " Such a very uninteresting young man I"  , said the maiden ladies over their afternoon  tea. ���       '       ��  " So ridiculously retiring 1 How did he ever  come to propose ?" remarked the mothers  whose daughters assisted in giving women an  overwhelming and not-.altogether united  majority in Croxbourne society.  . " The men, on the other hand, voted St.  John a good sort, and his parishioners, in their  rough ways, owned to his many qualities.  " You're a dear little girl, Nancy," the curate  was'stammering, looking up at his , beloved,  -whenthey were, both stopped short on the  narrow pavement. A burly workman was  engaged in chastising a small boy with a  weapon in the shape of a stout leather belt.  The child screamed, and the father presumably  cursed.  '" Stop !" cried the curate.  The angry man merely scowled and raised  the strap for another blow. St. John laid a  detaining hand on the fellow's arm, the temerity of which caused' the latter such surprise  that he loosened his grip for a moment, and  the youngster fled howling up an alley.  " What the"���spluttered the bully, dancing  round the curate, who seemed to shrink nearer  to his sweetheart.  ,  �� Let us go, dear," he said. He had grown  white and was trembling.  At this juncture two of the workman s  cronies appeared at the door of the alehouse  opposite and, seeing how matters stood, crossed  the road and with rough hands and soothing  curses, conducted their furious friend from the  ^Horrible !" sighed the curate as the lovers  continued their walk.  MUs Edmiston's  nead  was   held   a   trifle  higher. " If I were a man," she said,    I would  ,   have thrashed him.     I would indeed."  �� You think I should have punished him  then ?" said the curate mildly. " He was a  much larger man than I, you know."  Nancy was silent. She was vaguely but  sorely disappointed in her lover He was  not exactly the hero she had dreamed of.  -How white and shaky he had turned I     ,  �� You surely did not expect me to take part  :      in a street   row,   Nancy," he said   presently,  somehow suspecting her thoughts.     He knew  her romantic ideas.     But she made no reply.  "So yon think I acted in a cowardly  fashionV' he questioned after a chill pause.  "I don't think your cloth is an excuse anyhow," she blurted out suddenly and cruelly.  The next instant she was filled with shame  and regret. Before she could speak again,  however, the curate had lifted his hat and was  crossing the street.     An icy " Gbodby I"  was  all he vouchsafed her.  *       *       *       *       # ���     * ,     ���  Mr. St. John was returning from  paying   a  . visit of condolence some distance out   of   the  village, and he had taken the short cut across  the raoor.     It was a clear, summer afternoon,  a week stosa his parting with Nancy.    A parting in earnest it had been, for the   days   had  gone by without meeting   or   communication  between them.     The curate was a.sad  young  man, though the  anger , in   his   heart   still  burned in his heart   fiercely.     To have   been  called a coward by the woman he loved   was  a thing not likely to be forgotton.   His recent  visit, too, had been particularly    trying.     In  his soul he felt that his worns of comfort had  been unreal j   that, ior all he had striven,  he  had failed in his   mission, to   the   bereaved  mother.     So he   trudged   across   the   moor  with plow step and befit head, giving no  heed  to the summer beauties around him.  He was about half* way home when, his  somber meditations were suddenly interrupted.  A man rose from the hether, where he had  been lying, and stood in the path, barring  the curate's progress.  " Now, Mister Parson !" he said, with  menace in his thick voice and bloated face.  " Good afternoon, my man," returned St.  John, recognizing the brute of a week ago and  turning as red as a turkey cock.  t{ I'll l good afternoon' ye, Mister Parson !  No 1 Ye don't pass till I'm done wi' ye !"  cried the man, who had been drinking heavily  though he was too seasoned to show any unsteadiness in gait.  The curate drew back. " What do you  want ?" he asked.     He was   painfully white  now.  11 What do I want ?" repeated the bully,  following up the question with a volley of  oaths that made the little man shudder. " I'll  tell ye what I want. I want yer apology"-���  he fumbled with the word���" apology fer  interferin t'ween a father and his kid.  I licked him more'n ever for yer   blasted  terferin."  " You   infernal   coward 1"   exclaimed  John.  His opponent gasped.  " Let me pass I" said the curate.  " No, ye don't 1" cried the other, recovering  from his astonishment at hearing a strong  word from the parson.  St. John gazed hurriedly about him. The  path wound across the moor, thorough the  green and purple of the heather, cutting a  low hedge here and there and losing itself at  last in the heat haze.     They were alone.  The bully grinned.     ''I've  got  ye   now!"  "You have indeed," said St. John, peeling  o ff his black coat and   throwing   it   on   the  heather. His soft felt hat followed. Then  he slipped the links from his cuffs and rolled  up his shirt sleeves, while his  enemy  gasped  at his proceedings.     ��  <{ Now, I'm readv !" said the curate gently.  " Are ye goin to'fight ?" burst out the other,  looking at him as Goliath might have looked  at David.     " Come on, ye"���  But the foul word never   passed   his  lips,  being stopped by   a   carefully   planted blow  from a small but singularly hard   fist.     The  little curate was filled with a wild, unholy joy.  He bad not felt like this since his college days.  He thanked Providence for   his   friends,   the  Indian clubs and dumbbells, which had kept,  him in trim the past three years.     The blood  sang in his veins as he circled round Goliath,  guarding the giant's brutal smashes and  getting in a stroke when occasions  offered.     It  was not long ere the big. man  found   himself  hopelessly outmatched ; his wind  was   gone ;  his jawwas swollen, and one eye was   useless.  He made a  final  effort   and   slung   out   a  terrific blow at   David.     Partly   parried,   it  caught him on the shoulder, felling  him  to  ' the earth.   Now, surely, the victory was, with,  the Philistine.     But, no.      The young   man  recoiled to his feet like a young sapling,   and  the next that Goliath knew was, ten, minutes  later, when he opened his available  eye  and  -- and found that his enemy was  bending   over  him, wiping the stains from his   face   with  a  fine linen handkerchief.  " Feel better ?" said the curate.  " Well, I'm"���  " Hush,   man ;   it's   not   worth   swearing  about," interposed his nurse.   " Now, get up."  He held out   his   hand   and   assisted   the  But  in-  St.  wreck to its feet.  " You'd better call at the chemist's and  get  patched up.     Here's money."  The vanquished one took   the   silver   and  gazed stupidly at the giver, who was   making  his toilet.  " Please go away  and   don't   thrash   your  boy any more," said St. John persausively.  Goliath made" a few steps, then retraced  them holding out   a   grimy   paw.     "Mister  Parson, I'm���I'm"���  " Don't say another word.     Goodby.  And the curate shook hands with him.  The big man turned away. Presently he  halted once more. " I'm beat 1" he said. It  had to come.     Then he shambled homeward.  St. John adjusted his collar, gave his  shoulder a rub and donned his coat and hat.  As he started toward the village a  girl   came  swiftly to meet him.  "Oh, John, John, you   are  splendid I'   she  gasped as she reached him.     " I watched you  from the hedge yonder." #  " I am exceedingly sorry  Miss  Edmiston.  said the curate coldly, raising   his   hat   and  making to pass on.  Nancy started as though he had struck her.  Her flush of enthusiasm paled out. In her  excitement she had forgotton that event of a  week ago, but the cutting tone of his voice reminded her. She bowed her head, and he  went on his way. He had gone about 50  yards when she called his name.

We are having quite  an  interest taken   in  politics here of late, and to the credit of our  politicians be it said that they take, a very intelligent view of the situation. The general  concensus of opinion is that the one man  power which at present rules in this province  is a decided detriment to it. In no taction of  ihe country..is the misgovernment and mismanagement of the Martinette more injuriously  felt than right here in Rossland. The miserable sum placed in the estimates for roads,  bridge^lraiis, tsic., will not be sufficient to keep  in repair a decent highway, to say nothing of  new roads and, bridges which are urgently  needed to open up some of the most promising  properties in the Trail Creek district. Friend  Joe is now fully recognized as the great source  of trouble, and men who supported his supporters are beginning to feel asahamed of  themselves, and to wonder how they are to  get out of ihe meshes in which they are tangled.

The arguments were so convincing in favor of the choice of the little  party that one could not refute them.

Polly Titjen.  MANITOBA AND THE FRENCH.  (St. John, N. B., Sun.)  Sir Wilfrid Laurier has declared that the  Manitaba school question has, been satisfactorily settled. This view,is not shared by the  Roman Catholic bishops of Manitoba and- the  Northwest, who" are probably a better authority. In a collective letter to their colleagues  of Quebec province, they ask financial aid for  the Northwest separate schools, and add these  significant observations : -  1 "The public and separate, schools, where  they exist, have in certain places but a precarious, existence. You do not ignore, venerable lords, that the school question is far from  being definitely settled in Manitoba, and even  in the' Northwest, in conformity with the  principles of our faith and the simple rules-of  equity and justice.' vFaithful'to the protection  granted by the Holy See:, we wait, in the hope  that our imprescriptible rights will .some day  be restored to us in their integrity."  In the face of this letter, Sir Wilfrid's boasting is sadly out of place. lie is daily contradicted by the bishops.  The  Western -bishops  have  mapped out a  much more ambitious programme, and one in  which  they will no doubt  have  the cordial  sympathy of Sir Wilfrid and his master, Mr.  Tarte.    They desire to " secure for the Catholic faith and French speaking element preponderance  in this land" (the great west.)    To  this end they desire a large immigration from  Quebec province, to offset  the "multitudes of  heretics  or  schismatics, and even tribes that  numbered among the Christian  community."  A French Catholic country west of  the lakes  to the  mountains   appears  to be  the goal of  their ambition.    It is needless to remark that  their  hopes  will hardly be realized.    What  they say, however, coupled with their attitude  on the Quebec question, would seem to  indicate a large field for the exercise of  Sir  Wilfrid's " sunny ways of conciliation." At whose  expense will they be exercsied?  HALF-MINUTE ENCYCLOPAEDIA.!  Turkey has been engaged in war : thirty-  eight years of the present century, considerably more than one third of the time.

C,  who arrived from Victoria this  morning, in dealing with , the  announcement that the Government had decided to enforce the  eight-hour law, pointed,out several  points wherein such action would  seriously injure Slocan in particular, and indirectly the Province as  a whole. lie stated that the enforcement would-havean immediate  adverse effect on the  Slocan coun-  > o  try.

The  early miners and prospectors made  the Slocan a  $3-50   a   day  camp,  and the present owners have   kept  it at such, and are desirous of still  keeping itso.

He  stated that the  eight-hour   law  is  absolutely   impracticable   in    the  Slocan   district,   apart   from   the .  question of wages,   owing   to   the  eonditions'of the workings  in that  country. -  To divide the shifts  into eight hours apiece means a   loss  of three hours on   every   alternate  shift, and,  as  an  instance  of  the  ill-advised   haste with   which  the  ^  legislation   was rushed    thorough  the House, without   opposition   of  any kind, it   may   be   mentioned  that the member for Slocan   afterwards expressed himself   surprised.,  that the   mine-owners objected  to  it, as he was under the impression   .  that they were working eight hours,  and had been.     The result of   the  closing down of the  Slocan   mines  means the cutting off of a disbursement of $125,000 per month within  five   miles   of   Sandon.,   It   also  means a   loss  of   tonnage  to the  different   railroads,   which     start  from that point, of about 5,000. ton's  a month.

Laces and ruffles are out of place  about the billiard table.  Among the bridesmaids luncheons given just now there is to be  one which deserves to be spoken of  as being quite out of the common  in the matter of table decoration  and appointments. Everything is  of the brides' own planning, and  the has worked it out so well that  she deserves great credit. Green  being her favorite color, she has  chosen it for her" bridesmaids'  luncheon, which she gives one week  before she is married.    There are to  be no flowers of any kind on the  table, but instead an exquisite oval  basket of maidenhair fern will be  placed on a centerpiece of Venetian  lace line with pale green silk. The  table cloth and doilies, which are a  present to the bride, and were  brought to her from Paris, are of  the finest linen, with bands of insertion in Venetian lace running  from the center to the edges, which  are finished off with broad lace to  match. The cloth at the luncheon  will be of green eilk, and in and out  of the bonbon dishes and other ornaments will be sprays of ferns.  Four tall green Bohemian glass  vases;: will stand at the corners,  filled with ferns. For dessert, each  girl will have a " biscuit Tortoni "  placed on a plate, decorated with  maidenhair ferns. The bouquets  will be of the fern, and tied to each  one will be a tiny box of gilt paper  containing the brides' gift to her  girl friends���stick pins of a decidedly original design. They were  brought from Vienna and are oi  the finest quality of enamel. To  carry out the idea, of a "fern  luncheon " and " fern wedding,"  the bride ordered these pins to be  made in the shape of a tiny spray  of maidenhair fern, and each green  end is tipped with a small diamond  to"represent a dewdrop.  It has been considered unlucky  to be married in May" ever since  the days of Ovid, and those people  who have spent their time in looking up roots and reasons have given  what they consider to be the origin  of the superstition as follows: In  ancient Rome there was held in  May a festival called the Lemuria,  or feast of the Lemures, which was  a ceremony in honor of the speeches  of departed souls. It became with  the Romans what we should call  *' bad form" to have matrimonial  feasts at the season of a solemn  ritual, being no doubt thought to  be an insult to the dead to marry  at such a time. From this a number of stories grew of the revenge  made by the outraged ghosts upon  those who dared to disregard them,  and if anything unfortunate happened to a couple who had been  married in May it would, of course,  have been put down to retribution.  So the tradition of ill luck arose  and its influence has lasted ever  since, even to our time.  The inquisitorial magisterial inquiries have elicited some humorous answers. An old sailor of 75,  who reminded the magistrate that  he had helped to work the ship that  took Sir George Grey and Bishop  Selwyn to England, was asked had  ..Thorpe's Famous Aerated wafers.

The  plant attains a height of from two  Uofpur feet, with woody stems,  widespreading branches and bright  green foliage. Its fruits are produced in clusters and are of a yellow color. The seed pods are soft  and woolly in texture and contain  too or three black seeds of the sizei  of a Brazilians bean. Their flavor  is a little like opium, and their  taste is sweet; the odor from them  produce a sickening sensation and  is slightly offensive. The seeds,  when pulverized and taken in small  quantities, have a peculiar effect  upon a man. He begins to laugh  loudly, boisterously; then he sings,  dances and cuts all manner of fantastic capers. Such extravagance  of gait and manners was never produced by any other kind of dozing.

Lord .Branwelt, says the biographer of that jurist, uted to tell a  ���*tory illustrating the complete  p ralysis which may . effect the  humsin mind af trying momenta.  One day when he was on b >ard a  Rhine steamboat, he noticed a lady,  evidently in great distress, tryirg  by signB to explain to the officials  some matter of importance. Fancying that she was a countrywoman  of his own, he asked.  " Do you speak English T'  The poor lady had really lost  her head, and she could only stammer out, *'Un }ea"���that is, a  little.  Then Lord Bramwell continued  the conversation in French, but it  became evident that the lady understood scarcely a word. German  and Italian gave equally bad results. Finally she muttered  audibly to herself :  " How I wish I were safe at  home 1'  " But Furelv you do speak  English !" exclaimed t ie baio \  " 1 can't speak anything else,"  she sobbed.

In the  first  and  most expensive   method the  brain was extracted  through the  nose by  means  of an iron probe  and the intestines were   removed  entirely from the body with a sharp  Ethiopian stone.     The   intestines  were cleansed and washed in palm  wine, and, after being covered with  powdered    aromatic    gums,   were  placed in Canopic jars.   The body  was  then  filled with  myrrh   and  cassia,  and   other   fragrant    and  astringent substances, and was laid  in natron for seventy daj s.   It was  then carefullywashed' and wrapped  up in strips of fine linen smeared  with gum.   The cost of mummifying a body in this fashion was a  talent of silver, or about ��240.   In  the second method the brain was  not removed at all, and the intestines were simply dissolved and removed in a fluid state.   The body  was laid in salt or natron, which,  - it is said, dissolved everything except the skin and bones.   The cost  of mummifying in this manner was  22 minae, or nearly ��90. The third  method was employed for the poor  only. It consisted simply of cleansing the body by injecting strong  astringent, and then salting- it for  seventy days.   The cost was very  email. '  If the friends of the dead  were  too poor to go to the expense of even  the cheapest of these methods, the  body was soaked  in salt  and hot  bitumen, or in salt only.    In  the  salt - and-bitumen   process   every  cavity of the body was  filled  with  bitumen and the hair disappeared.  Clearly, it is to  the  bodies   which  were preserved in this way that the  name "mummy"   (derived   from  Arabic  mumia  or   bitumen)  was  first applied.   The salted and dried  body is easily distinguishable. The  skin is like paper, the features and  hair   have   disappeared, and   the  bones,are very brittle and  white.  It may be noticed  that   the   eyes  were sometimes removed and their  places supplied by others of ivory  or obsidian.    The hair was also removed   and   made   into  a packet  covered with  linen  and   bitumen.  At a late period the flank incision  was covered with a metal plate, oh  which a symbolic eye was engraved.  The linen bandages  employed  to  swathe the body were three or four  inches in width ; the length varied  according   to  circumstances ��� as  many as 400 yards are said to have  been   employed   for one mummy.  They are generally coarest near the  body, and finest outside.  Ask for  Eddy's  when you order  matches. Then  you will be sure  of having the best.
