FORMALLY the Hon, J. Israel Tarte's resignation became necessary because of his  failure to consult hi* colleagea before advocating a change of policy. Under examination  this would hardly pass: a Cabinet Minister  - does not owe any allegiance to hi* colleagues,  . but only to the Prime Minister, and Mr.  Tarte has asserted, with no denial as yet from  Sir Wr4frid, that he averted his present views  just as emphatically in Sir Wilfrid's presence  ai later in his absence, Be this as it may,  the reason assigned by the Premier i�� frivol-  oas but characteristic ; a formal reason suns  his temperament better than the real cn*>,  which would commit him to something definite. It ifc nonsense t���� assert that a Minister  should confer with his colleague* before expressing his viesvs ; when his views prove to  be at lariance with those of his chief, of course  he should resign, but let the reason be honestly given, let Sir Wilfrid state that Mr.  Tarte's views are not his.  Does he do so? Oh, no; he informB Mr.  Tarte that the economic point raised is interesting, but he does not care to discuss it now I  Instead, he alleges an imaginary breach of  etiquette. This is political cowardice of the  lowest kind. It would be the grossest flattery  to call it childishnens, it is mature imbecility,  The "'machine." may .swallow it (if the Ontario elections have not impaired that beast's  digestion,) bAt the:country will certainly reject it.  To dismiss thte cowardly and imbecile explanation, what is   the real reason for Tarte's  withdrawal ?    He is a   protectionist aB. he always was, he never  drivelled about |C the iniquitous system of protection " or the ct sunny  ways of conciliation ;" he has  steadily advo  oated the National   Policy  of  industrial and  commercial independence.    His opponents in  the Cabinet have advocated nothing and done  nothinpflinoel896 ; since the Joint High Commission adjourned to the Greek Kalends, they  have  forgoeten   that there  evelPwas  a limit  question.    If Mr. Tarte didn't know what his  o, /, \y ��� -'-.I  1 T��.|,^'S,**"��'��||������WfrWl*1''",��"r  ,��u>y,   ,'   ,(,, 1,1,''    '1 '  ,v :yh    ; ,>t 1  chief's trade policy   wa.-, he   was no worse off  than all others *  A few weeks ago, we drew attention to the  fact that acquiescence in Mr. Tarte's policy  meant the retraction by the other Minicters  of every speech they had ever made. They  have seen it finally and have coerced the unfortunate dodger who nominally leads them  into dismissing the only intelligent man in  the Cabinet.  What.are they going to do now ?  Nothing whatever. They dare not tinker  with the tariff; they know now that the  United States will not revi-e hers tp redeem  their foolish promises. Toe late event?, how-  ever, in spite of the Premier's feeble " breach  of etiquette" apology, commit thetn ;o their  obi shibboleth of Free Trade. What excuse  will thev offer now for six years of idleness  with the country c* groaning under the present tariff " ? None at all ; they'll cling to office grimly until they're thrown out, a period  which is now not far distant.  While the irrepressible Irish members  keep the venerable mother of Parliaments  from goirlg to eleep and incidentally from discussing the Educational Bill, and Mr. Tarte's  rapid manoeuvres save Canadian politics  from stagnation, and various other restless  spirits in divers lands contribute, each in his  own sphere, to what we call progress, a part of  the world whose existence we sometimes forget, is forcing��her way in recognition among  the civilized*8tates in most modern fashion,  Talleyrand, the witty diplomat, who served  republic, emperor and king with impartial  zeal, once described the goyernment of Turkey  as despotism tempered with assassination ;  we might imitate Talleyrand and describe the  government of South America as dictatorship  tampered with revolution. There are seldom  loss than three of the South American countries engaged in the genial tempering process.  At present two are at it seriously enough to  keep the attention of the Associated Press in  spite of the rivalry of the Irish and Mr. Tarte  (Mr. Martin is in the hospital so of course we  must excuse him )  ���    I"' . ��  Columbia has had a civil war in progress  for several months and several battles have  actually been fought, not only'with telegrams  but with real bullets, and latest advices assure us that, a naval battle is pending between a government cruiser and .a rebel gunboat. Her neighbour on the east, Venezuela,  the state which furnished Grover Cleveland  with campaign material seven years ago, has  11 little affair on al.-o, just to keep her citizens  from emigrating to Columbia to see the war.  A Mr. Castro was elected President years ago  and although his term of office .e^i^edi^Vr r  eral times since, his influence witp%W;iifB2^  and navy has not, and as the poslffoS^l^e^F  president is neither safe nor o^mm^^^M^  tractive, he has decided to detain^%KfeiSa|^^kS  sibilities and emoluments of o^c^.^a^I^Het  longer.

And  this   is only one of the many  Iwlly offences of which this ignorant clod-  ..pper has been guilty, but it affords  reason  ;r inquiring just how far a drivelling idiotic  German can go in   availing   himself  of  the  /privileges of a   council  committee   to   assault  '  the reputation of  re.-peclal.le citizens ?    Has  anyhmember  of   the council  a  special right  to ;malign   h'tB   neighbor   without rei-d-ring  ' (self amenable  to   the   law?    Finally, d ���  ���Wen maintain that discreet silence which  fy recommend to others as the   best means  Iriursing u-situation ?  Pfieorcefl.HHin,   the  literary  man   of  the  |  C. P. Ei'paid hirt annual visit to  Nelson last  J  ..... Tuesday.     The visitofMr Huintblsyear has  ^ peculiar interest to the citizens of Nelson, inafl-  ;?^Wuch as he was looking c��ver tlie ground from  a tourist point of view.    Thci C. P. U. is making special arrangements to accommodate the  rf  ,.   tourist   travel    of next   year,   and    the   trip  M   through the mountains  will   include a day on  * :'\ the Arrow   Lakes and  thence   on   to  Nelson,  i One would have thought that  tho importance  1 of this arrangement would have induced me.��-  1  berwofthe local   tourist   asBociation   to have  called on  Mr  Ham   ho   thai    he   might  have  been placed   in possession of information that  The   improvement   in-business  conditions  j  cannot, be better illustrated than   by referring  \  to the hopeful  feeling that  has   taken hold of j  the people.    A year ago busing men werede-   ;  cidedlv pessimistic in their views, but   to-day   j  everyone expresses the  belief   that  there is a  \  marked improvement iu trade conditions, and   ;  that at no time during the   past   three   years  \  has the volume of business been so great at* at  ,  present. The opening up of new mints and the  resumption   of   work  on others   undoubtedly  hassomtlhingtodo   with this improved' f��el-  liog,but oth-r things  also  coiitribu:e iiMhis  direction.    This id particularly im* ca^   iivso  Jar as N, Is.hik- concerned.    The almost absolute certainty that th,*   refinery will   be built  during the coming year has revived   faith   in  the mining industry.     But   the future   of the  Kootenays    depends   largely   on   the    people  themselves.    The  disposition   of   certain  elements to quarrel wiih one  another  has, had ��  I  bad effect on outsiders, and the sooner the peo-  \   pie   make  up   their  minds   to give  the cold  shoulder to mischief-makers and disturbance-  breeders the better it will be for ail concerned.  1 j ������*  feM  r-.  ���*  1  y. y  During Mr  Jacob Dover's   visit   in the east  he came in contact   with  many burines.- mem  and .one thing particularly impressed itself on  his mind and that ia the deplorable lack of information in *h'e.east as, regards:i the "preying  ���"ne'rds-.-.of Bruish   Columbia.

They  are   very   few,   but     the    number    he   has  made   are    numerous   enough   to   patch    a  mile of that  particular locality which is said  to have solved the good roads problem by paving with   good   intentions.    Jo&eph Martin is  now in the hospital, having  recently   undergone an operation, but he is very much in the  position of the old woman   who  was  on   the  cart en route to   the scene of  her execution.  She counselled the spectators to be in no great  hurry as the fun would not begin until she arrived.    Of course there are a few new political  parties proposed, but this is so common  thete  days as to be scarcely worth   mentioning.    A  new Conservative club-room  has been opened  at Vancouver, and Bob Green   and D.ck McBride went downthere to consecrate it.   They  said ever so many nice things about the Conservative party, and  vowed  by   the sun,   the  moon and the stars and the leaves  on   every  tree that they would remain constant io Charlie Wilson, which was aluo  a good thing, but  so   far   Mr*    Wilson    has not made   up   his  mind whether, he is  the   tail or   the body   of  the   Conservative   canine.      Coming   nearer  home, Jim  Wilka   persists   iu looking wiser  and    wiser   every    day.      Solomon     wasn't  a marker to Jim Wilks when it comes to looking wise.    Some  days   ago Jim   disappeared  and his friends were thinking seriously of advertising   for   him   when   he   turned   up tie  other evening looking more mysterious   and  winer than ever.    Some say Jim took advantage of Bob Green's  absence  at the coast   to  make a tour of the Slocan.    If  he  did so, he  is not as wise  as   he looks.    B. J. Perry has  that district dead to rights, and   will emulate  the deeds of Hearst by buy ing up and consolidating a bunch of   newspapers  there.    Perry  is a statesman all   right  enough,  ahd   moreover is one of the best friends labor ever li ad  in this country. For years he has been known  as a producer.    Altogether  the   situation   is  one that  affords food   for deep concentrated  contemplation, and amusement.  Truth is stranger than fiction;   The  other  day two gentlemen werfe walking down Baker  Htreet.    Both have   been  residents   of Nelson  for some time.    On   the opposite side of  the  street was a lady strolling along leisurely with  a boy tive or six years old.    One  of the gentlemen remarked to the other that the Woman  with the little boy on the opposite side of the  street  was rather  good-looking, and that she  must be a stranger   in   the city as he had not  seen   her here   before.    His friend   looked   a  little more  carefully   at  the woman, and acquiesced as to her good looks, but added : " 1  rather think I have seen   her."    A few hours  afterward the latter was sitting in the office  room of one of the hotels, when he saw tbe  lady with her husband and the little hoy coming out of tfye dining-room. This time he  knew her and the woman recognized him.  She was his divorced wife and the boy with  her was his son. He had seen neither of  them since he started for the Klondyke  four or five years ago, and was a little puzzled as to how he would be. received by the  woman and her present husband. He was  soon satisfied on this score, for the woman  walked over-to him, warmly shook his hand,  at the same introducing him to husband ,No.  2. The boy was also enlightened as to hi* relationship to the stranger, and a very pleasant evening was spent by all the parties to  this circumstantial meeting. Stranger still is  it that husband No. 1 discovered that husband No. 2 was hisu cousin through another  mystifying complication in the marriage relationship. The second husband, wife and boy  have returned home, but not before extending  a pressing invitation to husband No. 1 to eat  his Christmas dinner with them in their new  western home at Seattle.   .  adapted for the work  wbiofa   will  bs impose  upon him by the duties of his new offie��.  Th  editor of this .paper extends to   his fellow-laborer in the vineyard- his heartiest congratula  tions on the appointment.  Mr Frank I. Clarke, who has been recently  appointed to the position of city editor of the  Victoria Colonist, is a man of considerable  versatility. In years gone by Mr. Clarke  dabbled a little in poetry and some of his  ver.-e fouud its way into the New York papers.    Besides poetry, Mr.   Clarke has to, his  credit something  in   the  line of light opera.  *+  His poetry had more merit than the average  newspaper verse, and might have brought  fame to the writer had he persevered in that  line. He possessed muchfoice as a writer, and  his genius will no doubt make itself manifest  in the columns of the Colonist.  Dave King, at one time editor and publisher ol the Kaslo Kootenaian, is now in New  York Oity. For several years Dave has been  lost eight of, and his friends had about given  him up for lost.

Another witness  who was sued for the payment of a small debt j  appeared in the County Court dressed in rags.

Indeed there is no end to the specious wiles  of witnesses;    About twelve months ago I was  present, at the   hearing of a cas<? wherin a wo-'  manjmed a man for a  large  sum of money,  and in order to gain the sympathy of the jury  for her she brought with her  her little boy, a  child of  six, who   was  deaf  and   dumb, and  whose strange; pathetic, and incoherent  cries  appealed to ihe hearts of the said jury.    It is  true that the case was largely concerned with  an incident connected   with the child, but  I  fancy had the action been a "non-jury" cause  the little fellow would have been left at home.  For judges, you nee, are not easily impressed  and are merely guided by  the legal aspects Df  the case before them.  One of the most extraordinary ruse* that  ever I beheld attempted by a witness was the  following. A certain middle aged man had  been knocked down by an omnibu*, and al-  although he had ouatained no severe physical  injury, he brought an acion against the company for damages in re-pect of'Shook to the  system." On the day of the trial he appeared  SHORT STORIES  Dr. Arthur O'Leary, the witty Franciscan  friar, once told John Philpot Curran, theT-  mous orator, when the latter was laughing _t  purgatory, that he might" go farther and fare  worse. re  On one occasion, Sir John Arebary was  showing the heavens thfough his telescope to  some neighbors and servants,  when one ex.  clawed:    ��I do not wonder, Sir John, that  o ever people find out ^ ^ ^ ^^  bL^tar9 lnd how th*y move; but ���**���  beats me I8 how you  ever  could  tell   their  names.  *<ot long ago a coroner's jury iolreland de-  livered the following verdict on the *udden  death of a merchant who had recently failed  in business: " We, the jury find from the  new doctor's fctateuiem" bat the deceased same  to his death by heart failure; superinduced by  business failure, which was caused by speculation failure, which was the result of failure  to ste far enough ahead."  ���kru any   I   ���       ���   "p|����reu  sustained a life-long injury.

Ypu may hardly credit it, but I have  even  leard of cases where such plaintiffs   have entered the box  leaning on the  solicitors' arms  though   in the last  stage   of exhaustion,  ought about by grief.     The sight of such a  ^ collapse of course induces a violent feeling  Ji?V*he   unfortunate defendant,   and   no  att'erhow slight the evidence in his disfavor  is^safe to predict  that he will  find himself  mulcted in  heavy damages,  simply   because  the/artful   ruee on   the  part of the lady has  galhed the sympathy  of  the   innocent jurymen. �� ' .  ���IM, i. ��� ���      .     .  vf'�� '<���������.     ,  JfA^iIti|n,,B.''no**)��  supposed, however,   that  it  11^ mhtm*l* witnesses who thus endeavor  press juries with fictitious sorrows.

When   addressed   by counsel   he  spoke in   palsied,  quivering  tones, and altogether conveyed the impiession  that the accident had brought  about complete mental collapse.    He was awarded a very   large sum aa  compensation, but  I   happen   to know for a  positive fact that within two hours of the verdict he was dancing  gaily about his residence  rejoicing at the  skilful   manner in which he  had fooled the jury and   well-nigh everybody  else in court.

An amusing story of Queen Horteus^  daughter of tbe Empress Josephine and  wifo of Loois Bonaparte, king of Holland, bus lately been told. After her exile from Holland tho ex-queen sojoaru-  ea ror �� ti mo in a modest habitation  near Coustance," "in Switzerland,  As ber health was. broken down by  her troubles ber physicians prescribed a  visit to tho mountains of Appenzeii.  aud tho ex queen, accompanied only by  a reader or female companion and two  or three servants, went to a rustic  neighborhood in the hills. There she  and her companion--'found nothing better to do.than hunt for four leaved clp^  ver and became quite excited in tncT  search,  44To. lend tho matter interest," the  queen wrote in a letter which kas been  brought to light, "wow-odd assart  that each discovery of a four leaved clover had some prophetic significance.  The next one, if found so and ao, meant  that we should return to Franco; an*  other meant; that I was to receive a let-  tor the next day from my sou Louis,  and so ou. In this innocent pastime we  found positively the only excitement  that was open to us in the place.  "But fioou it was noised abroad  among the children of tho neighborhood  that wo were continually hunting four  leaved clover, and consequently. theM)  children argued, wo must want it very  much. Then all tho children and some  of tho grown people were out hunting  four leaved clover, and soon great  bunches of it were brought to us, for  which wo had to show ourselves very  grateful.  "In another day our only resource for  amusement was gone, for these kind  hut Kuperservieeablo peoplo had stripped tho neighborhood for a milo around  ��f all its four leaved clover."
