OOMK aspiring comic opera author would find rich  v^    material lor a plot on which to exercise  his  genius in the scenes which were presented'in the   Local  U^'isl.iturc Inst week.    Gilbert  nn<\  Sullivan   never  conceived anything half s:* diverting as the spectacular exit ofthe thirty-five members ofthe Local Legislature when the Lieutenant-Governor, decked out   in  all the lojjsery of  his  office, with   speech   in   hand,  made his entrance.    The denizens ofthe  gallery evidently believed they had the worth of their  money,  f'*r they cheered as the gallery does almost invariably  when   nleased   with   the   ballet divertissement, or a  cake-walk ; and here it might be pointed out that one  wh<.   participated in the proceedings, and enacted the  rnlo <>f the Great Presence, has much  in his stride to  rvmind one of a champion cake-walker.  servatives   and eight Liberals are  elected,   or vice  versa, what guarantee have the contestants that  the  chosen leader of the"Vfctwlous party will be eutrusted  with the formation of a Government ?    In   1898, the  Lieutenant-Governor dismissed a Government  without knowing officially  anything of its strength ; in  fact, while contests for two seats were still pending,  and called upon a gentleman   who  had  been over-  whelmingly defeated at the  polls   to  form a Government.    After Mr. Beaven had acknowledged his inability to accomplish the task, His Honor then called  in a gentleman who was  fortunate enough to have  won a sent.    Now he dismisses a Government  and  calls upon a member���absolutely without a following  and who has been declared by all parties to be a political impossibility���,vho proceeds to call iu a couple  of lawyers, one of whom was defeated at the last election, and they undertake to carry on the affairs of the  country without  leave   or license  from the  people.  What a farce !    But it demonstrates the seriousness  of-the situation.    It proves  that our Parliamentary  system is lamentably weak in spots.    It also reveals  the fact that there are individuals in high positions in  this Province vain enough   to imagine  they   possess  more wisdom than   the combined intelligence of the  whole electorate of British Columbia.  But the residents of British Columbia, if one  may  conclude from the ominous murmurings heard   along  '.the streets, and wherever men do congregate, do not  incline to take the humorous view of the performance,  yuitc the reverse; they feel, that matters in this Province have.reached .that pass   when   the   voice  of the  people, is" no longer   potent and the people's  will   is  contemptnously  ignored.    'The pernicious  hand of  despotism, which alone can make a whole people desperate, ' has .manifested its presence in the loyal Prov-  i��ce 01"British Columbia, and now that   the  struggle  between-the people and despotism  has   been precipitated, it does not demand unusual depth of wisdom or  political saeacity to predict the end.    MThe  voice of  tber people is the 'voice of God." >  /-��v  Phe present conflict letwecu the people and despotism presents a series of problems that will be difficult of solution. ��� Assuming that the next election is  lought out on Federal party lines and that thirty Con-  Perhaps Sir Hibbert Tupper put the situation in its  strongest light in his  address to the  Young Men's  Liberal-Conservative Club at Vancouver, last Friday  night.    According to the report in  the   Piovince.he  reminded his hearers that this Province was on 4t the  eve of an imperial conflict; they had on hand a contest for the great principles of responsible representative government.    If the Province  was  now in  the  positioti of a laughing-stock in the eyes of all the provinces and indeed of all the colonies, it was because we  were under the domination of a man who resorted to  very similar methods to those of Oom Paul, whom he  seemed desirous of rivalling.    The Liberal-Conservative party was not desirous of weakening the respect  due to the representative of the Crown; but students  or the   B. N. A. Act  and  of constitutional government would readily apprehend   the  great  difference  between the- Queen and those holding office representing her. To the latter w*as always accorded the respect  due the office.    Still when such  representatives forfeit all  right  to respect, when   they transgress the  constitution, they can and  will be  punished.    So in  British Columbia at the  present time;'--when a man  holding the high office of representative of the Crown  becomes despotic or idiotic, it was not possible for the  people to be quiet and to be told that he  Is  hedged  round with a dignity, that is beyond criticism. Times  have changed.    There is no dignity that will protect  "vii  : -a  .- <\  ... i  #'  ���ftiN  AA��i  . y.

We are  men and there is no duty more important at the  present crises than to show the world that when held  in contempt by a man who has forgotten,' if he ever  knew, the traditions of his office, we are prepared to  resent and rebuke, and constitutionally to drive him  from office at  once and  forever.    There   are   tunny  things to be considered. It was evident a desperate  <*ame was being played at Victoria and the chief actors were Lieutenant-Governor Mclnnes and Joseph  Martin. The latter had reached a position when he was  powerless for good or evil in the affairs of the country  until the former had deliberately chosen to link fortunes with him. The reason for this hold and dan*  gerous game, and for, the extraordinary conduct of  the Lieutenant-Governor, was not far to seek."  From a Conservative point of view, speaking now  from its influence on Federal issues, the situation is  not wholly without consolation. Lieutenant-Governor Mclnnes received his appointment from a Liberal Government, and,th*t party must now assume  all responsibility lor his official acts If he had been  the greatest enemy Sir Wilfrid Laurier had in British  Columbia, he could not, have accomplished more in  the way of bringing discredit on the Liberal party in  this Province. No Literal candidate can go upon  the platform and conscientiously defend, or even condone, this latest official act of the Lieutenant-Governor; and that is why so many Literals throughout  the Province are so emphatic in their condemnation  of his intolerable conduct.  Sir Wilfrid, however, appears to have  found a w y  out of the d lemma.    In   the   House,   yesterday,   he  intimated that the Lieut,-Governor had acted   within  his authority, but whether he acted wisely or not was  the question/   "It  will  be   the  duty  oi'  the  Lieut -  Governor to promptly dissolve the   Legislature, sum-  mon the electors uAhe polls and submit to them with  as little delay as possible, the questions   which   have  been raised.   If the people returned a majority against  the Martin Government   it   will   have   been   obvious  that the Lieut.'-Governor had  taken a   very  serious  risk.     At the present time  the   remedy   was   in   the  hands of the Province of  British Columbia."    There  is  not   much   consolation In ' these   remarks for the  'Lieutenant-Governor or Mr. Martin.  The Semltnites are now taking copious drmghts  of.the medicine administered io Mr. Turner and his  followers twenty months ago by Lietit'-Govcruor  Mcluues.     His Honor gives big doses, too.  In the two months which the Lcgishture'sat nothing in the shape of legislation was passed. What do  we send men to the Legislature for anyway ?  IF anything further is required to indicate the sub  stantial hold that Canada has secured upon the  trade  of Great Britain in natural products it is supplied by  the cable order rccived last week from the Imperial  war office, requesting the agricultural department to  arrange foraTsupply of 3,000 tons of hay per month  forshipmeiti to South Africa as long as the war lasts.

Lord  Roberts has in the past told but little of what he intended doing, and it is probable that the first the out*  side world will know of his movements will be the  notification of what has been accomplished. One  more decisive blow and the Boers, havi.ig demonstrated to the world their quality, may be able to see  their way clear toward the initiation of negotiations  that will bring the war to a close.  The Lieut.-Governor in his repeated onslaughts  on the "constitution" has torn it to that extent  that some people believe it would be tetter to buy a  new one altogether than patch the old one up.  Thk funeral of the British Empire, so long predicted by foreign powers, has been indefinitely postponed.  w*itwkrtwUM#auMr -jj  i umm v MnnwHNnnwy*1  It was hard pounding, and in spite of the cost  General Builer was able to pound hardest and loug-  longest. In British operations around Ladysmith  the tola! losses reached almost half the force sent out to  rescue.

Pj.iAs Rogers has been appointect managing di-  Jcctor of the C. N. C. Co., viceRobert Jaffray, who  ���la-mains first vice-president.  In its issue of August 18th, 1897, The Economist  published the following: ''We observe with some degree of alarm that the Hon. Joseph Martin will transfer his political operations from the Province of Manitoba to British Columbia. Mr. Martin is a man  without whom this Province could struggle along very  well. He is a disturbing element no matter where  his lot is cast, and if Manitoba desired to mark her  friendship for British Columbia, she should have sent  us a blizzard and kept Martin at home- We would  suggest that immediate steps be taken to bind Martin  over to keep the peace while in this Province." It  surely is permissable for this paper now to say, "I  told you so." '���"/;'*  The Lnh Standard, of Minneapolis, says "the Fenians���the men of Irish descent���will cross the bor-.  der and raise the stars and" stripes oyer the Queen's  Dominion." Well, not if the Rocky Mountain Rangers happen to be present.  The Spokesman-RcvifUk contains the following:  "What troops are those?' asked Cronje, as he rubbed  his eyes in the gray dawu and peered at the entrenchments only 80 yards away, "They are Canadians,"  said a subaltern, "and they rushed that position just  before daylight." "Send out a flag of truce," replied the ga'lant Cronje, "it's all off with us now."  The Produce says: " The great majority of Liberals will agree with the view that Mr. Martin can  advance no valid claim to Liberal support in any capacity., If the Liberals of British Columbia wanted  a Provincial Government representative of their party  the new premier would be the last man they would  call upon to form one."  The latest dinner-table decorations in England are,  of course, of a military nature, and scarlet is largely  used. Strips of the bright cloth used for soldiers'  coats are laid down upon the table, and silver baskets  filled with variegated holly and scarlet tulips are  placed in between these. A novelty is a khaki tablecloth, on which scarlet silk is puffed, and the flowers  are tulips and hyacinths, planted in high scarlet milt-  tary boots. A pretty idea is a table centre of pale  heliotrope panne, with silver vases dotted about filled  with variegated foliage and Parma violets.  Thk Grit- press appears to have discovered that  ^���verttl French Canadian conservatives ardently supported the stending of contingents to South Africa.  fiie  question, however, is  not whether this citizen o  There seems to be a growing sentiment with men  .of all shades of politics, in view of the unseemly  scramble for position and power, now witnessed at  the coast, for the Kootenays to unite in sending a  solid delegation.of sound business men, pledged to  fight for the interests of the Kootenays, to the Legislature.' .  ���,-   ,' --M  ," A  i'U  s  ~.~yy -k:  ", A,  . a&1  'AJ  .."-,?>  , ,'' "���'  - ��� 'h41  / -*"A  >\ " -1   ?i!  ��� 'JAt,y���.  <������ *A3  ���   -I _ -. ��� ,1 -f��..  ��� ������"������ -Vf��.

It is contended by some that greater latitude should  i^l^-lpermiUed: amateurs than ;: 'professional's.   and   no  doubt there is justice in this contention, v'..profession-'  als live by the disposal of their talents just as the ra'er*  chant does by selling his wares, andvi.t.."is'���'.maintained'  that neither has a right to misrepresent the quality of  his commodityv.  The   Economist,   so   for as  the  writer is aware, has not made  a   practice  of  unduly  extolling the genius of the professional or the quality  of the goods which the merchant offers to his customers.    This species of dangerous flattery  is left to   pa *  pers which have so far failed   to establish credit .with  the public.    There are  many   amateurs   whose   performances are more  acceptable than   those   of some  professionals, notably in the cases of individual members of the Nelson Minstrels, and on  these .occasions,  this paper accords due credit ;��� but again there are altogether too many amateurs absolutely  barren of tab  cut, who. on every conceivable occasion, force   themselves on the public, and so  often too under the guise  of contributors   towards  charity.     (Charity   covers  multitudes of sins.)    In the cases  of the   latter, the  writer d<pes not feel himself bound to lie   in order  to  mantle their naked imbecility     In this connection, it  is pleasing to note that many   letters   have  been   received from leading citizens-of Rossland thanking me  for-my outspoken remarks with   regard   to   the   per-  ������*�����������������'.

Ah, sweet Kitty Xeil! rise up from your wheel;
Ymir neat little foot will be weary from spinning;
fome, trip down with me to the sycamore tree-
Half the parish is thee and the dance is beginning.
The sun is gone down, but the full harvest moon
Shines sweetly and cool on the dew-whitened vallev,
While ail the air rings with the soft, loving things
Which little bird sings in the green shaded alley.
With a blush and'a smile, Kitty rose up, the while
lie  eye <»n the glass, she wound her hair, glancing.
Tis hard to refuse when a young lover sues,
So she couldn't butchno.se to go oft to the dancing.
And now on the green glad groups are seen,
liaeh gay-hearted hid with the lass of his choosing;
And Pat, without Jail, lead.* out sweet Kitty Neil—
Somehow, when he asked; she ne'er thought of refusing.
Now Felix Magee puis his pipe to his knee,
Ami with nourish so free, sets each couple in motion;
With u eheerand a bound, the boys patter the ground—
The maids move around just like swans oh the ocean:
Checks bright as the rose—feet light as the doe's—
Now coyly retiring, now boldly advancing;
Search the world all round, from the sky to the ground,
No such .-sight sight can le found as an Trish lass dane-
hi«>a ■
Sweet Kate! who could view your bright eyes of deep blue
Beaming hmmdiv through, their dark lashes so mildly—
Ymir fair-turned arm, heaving breast, rounded form—,
Nor feel his heart warm, and his pulses throb wildly?.
Poor Pat feels his heart, as he gazes, depart,
£>uhduc<i by the smart of such painful yet sweet love;.
The sight leaves his eye as he cries with a sigh,
u I).nice light, for my heart it lies under your feet, love!"

The Passing Century Mysteries.
The nineteenth centurv* will leave behi nd a grea
lesracy of mysteries which it could not solve, and
which probably will remain mysteries to the end of
time. The most notable of these is to be recalled in
detail in the April Ladled Home Journal in an article
on 4The Mysteries of the Century." Each one set
the whole world agog with excitement and speculation in its day, but has faded almost completely from

(Review of Reviews.!  Lord Roberts is a soldier as Brindley was a   maker  of canals     When   Brindley   was asked what   rivers  were  made   for    he   replied:    "To   feed   canals/  So    politicians,    statesmen,     and    sovereigns,    tne  migration  of races,   ihi, de/el >p neat yd    military  ambitions-all these turbid forces which govern the destinies of peoples appear to the soldier, whether he is in  cocked hat or in the plain regimentals of the rank and  file, as important chiefly in so far as they culminate in  fijhting.    It is his business, and like the  apostle   he  says:   " This one thing i do:*'    This  conception   of  energy   and supreme devotion to   professional  duty  may   not impress us as representing the highest type  of human evolution, but it is certainly quite different  from the point of view of ordinary citizens���so different  that in reading Lord Roberts' story we are continually  reminded  that he is practically a denizen  of  another  world.    We do not   feel   this in relation to many soldiers.    . General   Gordon/for   instance, although  a  brilliant officer, devoted to the army, never sank the  man   in   the   soldier, .but   remained   philanthropist  statesman,   humorist, and   religious   genius   beneath  his   regimentals.     It   would be unkind   to  say   tliat  Lord Roberts is a soldier aud  nothing else, 'out he is  certainly   saturated   through and  through   w��:h   the  atmosphere of the camp.     He  has   breathed it all his  life.     It   is his world.     He is even mote of a   Tommy  Atkins  than    Tommy     Atkins   hin>el:',   u ho   is  <>f  short service, whereas Loid  Kol ens fa- put in near-  lv fifty years of service in the anuv.  absurdity and anomaly of the game of personal politics, and they are rapidly coming round to straight  partv lines. It is site to say that four-fifths ofthe  Liberals and Conservatives will now favor tying up  ton party with a definite policy and a recognized  lender, instead of choosing a side in'such n medley as  at present exists It is the only way out <d;\ dilemma,  the like of which bus ntver 'been witnessed in this  country.

The average politician  deems it a great honor to serve in one government for  twenty years, in that historic period Joseph Martin  has served in the Greenway and Semlin Governments  and contributed to the defeat of the Norquay Government th" Tupper Government, the Greenway Government, and now the Semlin Government.  Clearing the Air.  (The Province.)  Premier Martin has given the names of his selected  .colleagues and announced his policy. As was generally expected, he has been unable to draw to his  side a man of any weight or prominence in provincial  politics. The composition of the new Cabinet 'is in  facta matter of indifference to 'he public, inasmuch  as any Cabinet with Mr. Marti a t its head would  nave been dismissed as an impossibility. Whatever  chance* that gentleman might have had as apolitical  -leader have  been entirc'v removed through the  oeo-  '>   ���icquaintance   with   his   methods.    While  the,  ,ue .��  'ce i��-ral tendency is to  censme .Lieutenant-Governor  Mclnnes for having landed the Province in thissome-  yhaf. ridiculovs situation, it may be well to look  further aud see whether he is not actually doing the  vpnbiic a service by clearing the   political  atmosphere  , 'of at least one obnoxious element. To thrust Mr.  .Martin into the foremost olace means his most ef-  fc-vvuVd, * impression and the removal of his 'power to  d> further injury.     More than that, the opportunity is  vaaa >> the people to renovate their political house and  ���Maw the adminbaraliou of their a flairs on a proper  aaic,;.

Closing Scenes in the House.  (Victoria Times)  The imposing pageant advanced at slow rr arch up the  centre aisle toward the turone, and His Ii'oner slowly  mounted the steps    It was noticed that between him  and Mr. Speaker Forster not a movement of any kind  in salutation was made.   The two men simply looked  straight at each other, then, the sergeant aUrms having removed  the mace, Mr. Speaker slowly turned  away on   the  left side to the floor of the House, His  Honor   immediately   taking the chair.    The officers  grouped themselves on the steps and on the dais beside His Honor.    All this took only a   few  moments,  to do, but while this was going  on on  the platform  every member ofthe House had left  the  floor, going  out by the doors nearest their  own  seats, and   when  His Honor looked up after sitting down it was to   be-.,  hold the strangest spectacle that ever greeted the  eye  of a  representative of Queen Victoria, or any other  British monarch.    Not a soul was to be seen  on the  floor of the House from the foot of the throne  to   the  north door, where .in old man,  apparently wandered  for the time being, stood peering   into  the hail, fun-  nil v   undecided   whether    to    enter   and ' take    a  seat or not.    From the gallaries burst a storm of derisive laughter, calls and  rappings.    The officers 'of  the   escort   looked   much embarrassed.    His Honor  was visibly vvhiteued snd appeared   for   the   moment  nonplussed.    He couched  slightly, put out his hand  toward his private secretary, withdrew it and  pulled  down the peak  of his  cocked hat; then pressed his  spectacles more  closely  to  his eyes.    Then he took  from the secretary's hands the copy ofthe speech... It  was upside down, so he turned it round and coughed  again.    The uproar  in  the gallaries continued; the  naval and military officers fidgeted a little and looked  somewhat uncomfortable and much surprised.    It was  painful to observe the nervousness of His Honor, who  pressed his hands together in evident  agitation, and  lor   the   time  being seemed not to know what to do.  Mr Joseph Martin stook near the clerk's desk as impassive as a statue; he showed signs of neither  agitation nor anger.    His was, perhaps, the only  countenance in the whole assemblage that was  absolutely,,  immobile.  Read Out of the Party. ,-  (Greenwood Times.)

Then she stamped her foot, and turned savagely  on  Richards.  "Clever! Exquisite! A genius! I never saw any  genius in your silly tales. Silly and sloppy, I call  them. I wish to goodness Vd married Bert Carroll  - nstead o( you. At any rate people wouldn't have  praised him up in order to run ma down. I know  'what they mean. Of course I'm stupid, and brainless and sidy��� tot good enough for you to wipe your  boots on - --"  And then Richards did the most sensible thing possible. He walked out of the dining-room and locked  himself up in his study. Lola, on seeing the lines of  his mouth more firmly ��*et then usual, aud guessing  nothing of the' tempest that surged in his mind,  immediately went off into a violent fit of hysterics,  .'and called the sympathetic hired girl to witness that  "Mr. Richards was a perfect brute.'*  Harold's den wasn't much of a "study ;"'merely a  smoke begrimed den furnished with a second-hand  -.burcMU, two or three chairs, and some shelves of  books. Lola called it 'Harold's sulking-room/f  but I knew that il was the only haven of refuge Richards co j Id find in hisow&i h u*e.  41A man must follow hiso v i fate/' Richards said,  as he sat down wearily at ue bureau, and looked at  the sheets of paper littered over his desk. ** I'm not  the only fool  who has found  marriage a failure; and,  after all, I've got a brain as well as a heart. I'll  give myself up to work, and waste no time in morbid  self-pity. That's a form of cowardice that leads to the  cutting of one's throat; and if I've exhausted the  possibilities of marriage I'll be hanged if I've exhausted the possibilities of life. "  He smiled grimly, and taking from one ofthe  pigeon-holes a notebook laid it on his desk, and began  to read its contents. From that day Richards progressed swiftly through the book that was to make  his name. Thys was his masterpiece, wherein he  would show his best of brain and heart; and, as the  weeks rolled on and the novel neared its end, he realized his work was good, and in that knowledge  could afford to live, and did live, without love and  sympathy.  In truth, he needed every support that work  could give a man. Lola's conduct grew daily more  shrewish and violent, and her tongue less fastidious  in its choice of words.  "So you've taken to locking yoars^lf .;) in your  sulking-room," she cried one day, when Richards had  perforce beeu compelled to answer her heavy banging  ou his study door. "It's a nice thing when a husband comes to lock himself up from his wife! I suppose my society's not good enough for such a clever  man as Harold Vinton Richards!"  He saw that she was in one of her paroxysms ot  rage, and he resolved to control his own feelings.   *  *T   wanted to finish some work," he said calmly,  �����������*Vi.**J*+L�� ���HeVt^Mi'  _>Vu^    #.��.r*t..i  We have opened this week a large shipment of import goods direct from English manufacturers, therefore  we are able to sell goods much cheaper than buying from eastern houses.
