NUMBER 48  SKELETONS  Notable Pages in the History  of Noble Houses.  FERRERS THE MURDERER  Grandfather of the Present Speaker  of   the   Commons   a  Prizefighter.  In the great gallery at Lord  Roseberry's palatial home, The  Durdans, near Epsom, among the  portraits of his ancestors, and yet a  little apart from them, is the picture of a young and exceedingly  beautiful girl.  The original of this painting,  which never fails to attract the attention of visitors, was a certain  Kitty Canham, a village beauty of  Thorpe-le-Soken, in Essex.  Mated when little more than a  child to a man whom she disliked,  Kitty fled to London, and, after various adventures, married under an  assumed name the Lord Dalmeny,  who would, had he lived, have  been the third Earl of Roseberry.  The young couple went abroad,  and four years were spent happily  in travelling from place to place.  Then, at Verona, Kitty sickened  and died, a victim to. the remorse  born of her guilty secret.  But ere the end cnme the unhappy girl found strength to confess to Lord Dalmeny the wrong  she had wrought him, and begged  him, as a laet favor," to promise to  carry her body back to the home of  her childhood and bury it in the  village churchyard. The promise  waa readily given and faithfully  kept, the young man traveling to  Thorpe-le-Soken, via Harwich,  with her embahnod remains in ono  big cheBt and her dresses and jewelry  in another.  Arrived at his destination, he at  once sought out the deseased's first  husband, and the two followed her  to the grave next day. Throe yeara  later Dalmeny, broken-hearted,  died also, leaving hia younger  brother Noil to Bucceod to tho oarl-  doui.  Suoh   ia tho   story of tho  bory'a ono family tdcoloton.  pathetio rather than .grisly  tho exact reverse holds good  with  regard to tho history attached to tho  upooimona belonging lothoMnrlof  Ferrers.

Tho victim was  tho murdoror'a own atoward.     Ho  had boon  summoned, thoro by tho  oarl to gointocortain business mat  tera about whioh  thero hud   boon  disputos. 'Thoso dispute's woro, it  would appear, thon and  Ihoro ro-  nowod; and in tho end  tho oarl, a  man of violent torn por, ordered hia  retainer to Bign a pupor containing  a oonfoBBion of dishonesty.   On hia  refusal, he tthot him dead.  Hia lordship wan in duo oourno  brought to trial boforo bin poors in  Westminister Hall, and being found  guilty waa sentenced to death, lie  wan hanged by Tyburn, with a silk-  on rope, for tho possession of which  Iho executioner and hifl ansititunt  .fought throo rounds whilo yot tho  Rose-  It ia  Hut  body was dangling.  The grandfather of Mr. William  Gully, Speaker of the House of j  Commons, was a prize-fighter.  There is little to be ashamed of in  the possession of this brand of  family skeleton; and as a matter of  fact, it is pretty generally averred  that the right honorable gentleman  is rather proud of the fact than  otherwise.  For John Gully, the ancestor in  question, was, despite his profession,  a thoroughly good-hearted, genuine  sort of fellow; a staunch friend and  generous enemy. He got into the  King's Bench Prison for debt when  barely twenty-one years of age,  through "backing a bill" for a friend  and was got out of it again by another friend, Henry Pease, the then  champion of England, who gave a  boxing exhibition in the jail yard  for Gully's benefit.  Afterwards Gully himself entered  the ring, won several battles, saved  money, became a professional bookmaker and before he was forty had  succeeded in amassing a million  sterling. He left behind bim in  addition to his money, no fewer  than twenty-four.children, one of  whom was, as has already been intimated the father of the present  Speaker.  There is no older or prouder  family in England than that of  which Baron Mowbray and Stour-  ton is the present reigning representative. They were a turbulent  lot, too, in times past, and so many  of them have lost their heads for  political offences that the fact of  one among them���the eighth Baron  it was���having been hanged for  murder standB out even more prominently than it probably otherwise  would do.  The victims were two yeomen  farmers named Hartgill, father and  son, who together took a prominent  part in resisting the encroachments  of their powerful neighbor. Lord  Stourton, on the common lands of  the pariah of Kilmington, Wiltshire,  wherein they all resuled.  The Hartgills fought the baron in  the courts of law, and won; whereupon his lordship gathered together  an armed band of his servants and  retainers, wont and seized the two  unfortunate farmers in broad daylight.  They hurried off, bound and helpless, to Stourton House, and there  beaten to death with bludgeons,  Lord Stourton looking on .approvingly, and remarking:, in answer  to ono ofthe actual murdorora, that  ho would soo that "they ehould no  moro bo called to account for it  thun if thoy had killed two sheep."  In thia ho was mistaken, however,  for both ho and thoy woro called  very sharply to uccount for it; nor  could all hia lordahip'B influence  tmvc thorn or himself from the fate  which ho, at all ovonta had richly  merited. His retainers wove gibbeted near tho acono of tlieir orimo.  Lord Stourton waa hanged at Salisbury and buried within tho cathedral, tho ailkon ropo which did duty  at hia execution being Biiapondod  abovo hia tomb.  Frank S.

The following communication  appeared in a recent issue of the  Victoria Colonist. It is of more  than usual interest at the present  time:  "Sir,���Knowing that you have  been a consistent advocate of what  is commonly termed "party lines,"  and that you are a loyal Conservative, I am surprised to find your  leading articles 6ihce the change of  government of a tenor calculated to  sow seeds of discord in Conservative  ranks.  "Force of circumstances has  placed Mr. McBride in a position  where, without disloyalty to his  recent Liberal associates in opposition, he has been enabled to take a  step to advance the welfare of this  province by carrying to victory the  Conservative banner. All staunch  party men will appreciate the manly  stand he has taken, when, if personal ends only were to be served, he  might have formed another hybrid  government, and thus held on to  office for two or more yeara, instead  of responding, as ho has done to  the wishes of tho people and appealing to the electorate. You must be  aware that if he had so desired, Mr.  Richard McBride could havo been  chosen leader of the Conservative  party at the Revelstoke convention.  A feeling of duly to his Liberal followers in tho opposition party  proraptod him to dcclino to havo  his name brought beforo tho convention in that connection.  "Forco of circumstances also  might havo placed, and vory nearly  did place, Coloyol Prior in a poni-  tion to likowihO forward tho inter-  oatfl ol our party. Had tho Lieut.  Governor granted him dissolution  ho would havo acted precisely aa  Mr. MoBrido has done, in which  caso, I a*k, wouldn't you havo  urged all Conservatives to rally to  hia support? I am sura you would,  and moreover, I am oortain that all  of uq would havo responded to your  call.  "Lot ua therefore not forgot personal disappointments and consider tho welfare of our province, which  ia involved in tho success or failuro  of our party at tho polls."  "Tt not surprising to find tho  Grit organ whioh bo recently was  fulsome in ita pro boa of MoHsra.  MoBrido and MoPhillipp, now turning ita vonomoua fangs on thorn for  thoir party loyality. Hut, to put it  mildly, it is disappointing to find  the Conservative organ disponed to  provoko bitterness and joaloUHica  among Conservatives. Lot us pro-  Bonl a united front when we meet  the malignants at tho polls. Lot  every true Conservative proparo to  follow  tho leadership of Mr.  Mc  Bride, until he has proved himself  unworthy, just as we would have  done had the mantle fallen upon  the shoulders of Colonel Prior or  Mr. Helmcken, or any other good  Conservative."  "F. S. Bahnard."  Things are still moving in politics. Dissolution is announcedrto  take place on the 16th of this month.  This decision was reached last  Tuesday evening at a meeting of  the executive after the Bwearing in  of Charles Wilson as president of  the  council.  The intention of the government  is to bring on the election as soon  as possible after that date, allowing  the necessary time to intervene for  the preparation of the lists, etc.  The preparation of the lists will, it  is thought, take about three months.  Premier McBride, however hopes to  accomplish it in a little shorter  time. As little can be done in the  way of preparing for the fight in  tbe various constituencies until the  new lists have been prepared, it is  not likely that the election can take  place until the ond of Ootober or  during November.  ticket, but it is absolutely certain  that Joseph Martin will be one of  the candidates.

There is a  general feeling at Kamloops that  Mr. Deane would make the strongest run of any  Liberal  mentioned.  Before the Royal Labor Commission, at Vancouver last Wednesday, George Dales was examined as  to the principles of Socialism. In  answer to the Chief Justice, the  witness said, that Socialism was international in application and he  did not think one nation could  adopt its principles and do business  with other nations not conducted  under Socialistic ideas.  ' In regard to the public ownership of utilities, Mr. Dale,stated  he was in favor of government  | ownership.  The Chief Justice pointed out  that the Intercolonial Railway of  Canada is owned and admihistered  by the Government.  Witness  replied   that  although  case,  it was  Joseph Hunter will not again  offer himself for Cariboo, his private  business demanding too much of  his time.  adian Pacific Railway were" expro^  priated without the owners' being*  in any manner recompensed. The  Chief Justice pointed out that there  are in Holland a number of people  of small means owning C. P. R.  stock, and asked if it would ba just  to deprive them of that stock without remuneration. Witness thought  it would be all right to do so.  Chief Justice Hunter���Then I  gather that a contract is a small  matter to a Socialist. I gather that  not much faith is to be put upon  the contracts of Socialists, and it is  somewhat remarkable that in the  case of unions with Socialistic tendencies it is difficult to get them to  stand by contracts, Mr. Dale. I  merely wish to get your ideas aB a  representative Socialist.  Mr. Dale did not agree with the  Chief Justice that the word of a  Socialist was not0 as good aa that of  any other person. The applicaion  of socialistic principles might be  looked upon by the capitalist as a  breach of contract.   ���    ji   3 ai -  The Revelstoke lacrosse team will  play with Nelson next Friday at  the recreation grounds.

Like many long-deeired things, party government, now attained, does not look so roEeate  when near as prophetic painters depicted it.  In a comedy that delighted us some years ago  we were told that  "Every little child alive  Is either a little Liberal,  Or a little Conservative."  So we learn now, some of us with extreme  surprise, that our little legislators whom we  had not suspected of any principles, political  or other, are all stanch members of one or the  other party, and we shall probably be invited  to re-elect most of theee honorable and intelligent gentlemen. For five years the province  has stagnated under two legislatures of nearly  the same personnel ; the people generally are  disposed to exonerate few if any of the mem-  hers from blame for stupid and self-seeking  legislation. It is somewhat distracting to be  asked to accept the same men now, who, we  must aseume, have completely changed their  natures by the easy process of renaming  themselves Conservatives or Liberals.  The Economist, unlike some of its esteemed  contemporaries, is not in the habit of swallowing its words.    We have condemned many .of  the present members  of  the Legislature  and  declared them unfit for such .-positions.    We  cannot  change   our   opinions   as rapidly as  thesejjentlemen change their colors.    An anarchist and demagogue is Btill the same to us  whatever organization  he  may  temporarily  join.   We shall, invtho future as in  the past,  advocate Conservative principles and vigorous  development of our country's resources in accordance   therewith,   but    we   refrain   from  pledging ourselves to endorse every candidate  for office who calls himself a Conservative.  The future of tho party in British Columbia  'depends largely on. tho wisdom, of tho rank  and file at the present juncture. We cannot  u fford to burden ourselves with mon of un-  Bavnry political record and self-Booking aims  and dangerous and disreputable methods.  Nelson Liberals did not nominate a candidate on Wednosdr.y night, but a committoo of  twenty was appointed lo select a suitable  man. The Liberals appear to havo somo dif-  ilcully in scouring a candidate, tho slrongoat  mon in tho party feeling that thoy oannot. afford to malco tho sacrifice of time domanded by  duo attention to legislative dutiuc. Tho Conservatives believe thero should bo no hesitation on this score-���lhat a Liberal can offor  himself with (ho fullest confldonco that ho  will never got enough votes to place him in a  position whoro tho Bnori'flcocomplained of will  bodoemod obligatory.  If thoro bo nny truth in tho rumors lhat aro  boing circulated from tho provincial capital  thcHO days, tho politioinns aro having troubles  of their own. There aro reports of  combinations between leading CoiiHcrvalives  nnd loading Liberals, but hy far tho most bo-  riouB charge is tho suggestion that tho Conservatives havo traitora in thoir ranks. In  proof of this assertion, it in i.onlt lulud thut ono  of tho loaders of tho Liberal party has a thorough knowledge of tho Consoavative plan of  campaign and is now in possession of tlm  secrets of tho parly. Indeed, tho report goes  furthor, and IuuIb that tho louder referred to  mil not only direct Iho campaign for his own  party, but also lends   a helping hand to  the  Conservatives in carrying  out  the  details of  the contest.    Of course these charges must be  taken with a liberal discount,   but there   are  many suspicious circumstances in  connection  with the relationship believed to exist between  certain prominent Liberals and   less   prominent-Conservatives.  It is announced that the Legislature will be  dissolved on the 16th, and in the natural  course of events the elections may be expected  lo take place within the next three or four  months. Already candidates are springing  up all over the province, and the contest will  undoubtedly be stubbornly fought from start  to finish. The Conservatives have started  with a decided advantage, but whether they  will be able to maintain tlieir lead, depends  entirely upon the class of men that are placed  in the field. Very many voters will refrain  from pledging themselves to either party un-  *il they know all about the qualifications of the  men seeking election. Nearl}' all admit that  party government is desirable at the present  time in British Columbia, but the fact lhat a  party cannot be greater than the elements of  which it is constructed will be constantly  borne in mind by a large number of voters.  The demand is for the best men on both sides  and the cold shoulder to the grafters.  Scientific research fails to record a parallel to the wonderful case of Cap. Sullivan,  who was examined last week in Toronto with  regard to timbbr limits which he had bought  from the Ontario Government for $250, and  sold for $9,000. The old mariner could not  remember anything except what was favorable  to his employees.  If Mr. McBride would be well advised he  should clean out the traitors, even if he had  to start political life over again.  Three or four years ago, the city of Nelson  invested in an expensive road-making plant.  It was the boast of certain members of the  present council when lhey were running for  office that this plant would b3 put into operation early in tbe year. Has this promise  been carried out ?  Mr. Lennie is receiving offers of support  from all quarters. A careful analysis of the  situation induces the belief that he can carry  the day against all-comers.  Everything points to a successful coleb<:tion  in Nelson of Canada's natal day. The committees report grfttityinB success, and are  working hard to bring about an enjoyable celebration.  If tho amount of travel can bo taken as a  safe indication of timep, Nolson may bo regarded as boing in a prosperous condition.

Even tho Colonist, whioh  has heen regarded us moro or loss Consorvativo  for years, refrains altogether from discussing  tho political situation. Tho Colonist has  novor boon vory certain of its political ground,  and sinco it has become tho inspired organ of  tho very worst elemont in tho Consorvativo  party, its courso is growing moro and moro  erratic.

Kamloops Standard.  With regard to Mr. McBride, we are glad to  see he has resisted the temptation to carry on  a mongrel government, by the grace of Martin, Curtis and Oliver. He has thrown in his  lot equarelv and fairly with party lines, and  will doubtless keep to his pledges at the Revelstoke convention. It is a source of pride to  us all that the first native son ever called  upon to form a government in this province  shoald be a Conservative, for as history shows  U3 the strength of a movement, as of a country, lies in the young men.

The enormous deposits of zinc ore which  have been discovered in British Columbia  promise to bring the province to the front as  a producer of this article of commerce, as it is  now one of the largest producers of the precious metals. The question of cheap reduction of the ore is then a matter of importance  , to the mine-owners of this province and they  will accordingly be interested in the reports  regarding Dr. DeLaval's success in this respect. Experts in metallurgy are now satisfied that Dr. DeLaval has succeeded in producing zinc from zinc ore by electricity.

There is no small amount of similarity between James Dunsmuir and Lord Penrhyn, of  Wales, who had an extended strike on his  hands���lasting so far for some three years.  Both object to their men joining unions of any  kind. Both claimed to own; the mines they  had been working, and that they could do as  they pleased with them. In the wake of Lord.  Penrhyn's obstinacy has followed untold misery and want, and the same may be the result  at the Vancouuor coal mfnes. , In the Penrhyn  case, conditions havo become so acute that  tho government is almost ready to interfere.

One View of a Mo-t Point.  It may be said that tho little -word  "my" placed beforo tho word "dear"  has a significance of it3 own. "When  used between the ladies thus, "My deai  Mrs. A.," it ia to devote an extra  amount of cordiality and friendliness,  and again when a gentleman so writea  to a lady of his acquaintance it has the  same reading. On tlie other hand, "My  dear Mr. B." is seldom or never written by ladies to their den acquaintances,  "Dear Mr. B." being, considered sufficiently affectionate. Elderly ladies,  however, aro outsido of this rule and  writo "My dear Mr. B." to men whom  they have known as boys.���Philadelphia North American.  Unavailing Prayer.  o Thoodore F. Seward, tho organizer  of the Don't Worry clubs, tells a good  story of a little boy who had reached  tho multiplication table in tho course of  his education. One night he was sitting  anxiously over a papor of figures, whon  his mother camo along? and said, " John-  nio, do you find your urithmetio very  hard?" "Yes, indeed, in��.mma, I do,"  was his reply. "It waa so awful hard  that I prayed to God to help me, but  fee's mads  threo  mistakes already.''�����_  Pain and Payn.  Barry Pain relates that he once eon*  tho late James Payn a series of parodies  for Oornhill. Payn accepted them, but  there was a difficulty. One of them was  a. parody of an author, X., who was ��  personal friend of Payn's and a very  sensitive man, who would aot tako tho  sincerfcirt form of flattery In the spirit  in which it was offered. Now, it happens that there is a considerable resemblance between the style of X. and that  of another author of tho same school, Y.  Payn suggested that Pain should taka  out X. 'a name from the title of tho paro  dy and substitute that of the school of  notion to which he belonged. "Then,"  he said, "X. will think that it's meant  forY."  "But," Pain asked, ' 'what about Y. ?"  "That's all   right,"   he   answered.  "Y. will know that it's meant for X."  A Haunted Railroad Car.  Every one has heard of haunted houses,  but the railroad men know there ara  haunted cars as well. For instance, on  the L. and N. there is a caboose known  as "1908" which carries on in the most  supernatural manner. What do you b&j  to a caboose that suddenly begins to  shake and shiver like a man with tha  ague, and this, too, when it is standing  alone on tho track? My informant sol  smnly asserted also that "1908" is subject to attacks of hysteria. It jumps up  and down without the slightest provocation. He says it did the most remarkable thing, however, one day near Richmond. It was standing on a siding with  all brakes set. All at once it started and  ran up grade, over an embankment into  a field. -1 ..���������   -   -    ���   The Old Lndy'a DUcovery.

Whilo sitting in the parlor of  the country hotol in tho evening after  transacting his businoss he was taken  in hand by tho wife of tho proprietor,  who was oxtremoly inquisitive and  ���wanted to know all about hia private  affairs. Mr. Allen took it all in good  part and for a timo was rather amused.  Finally sho asked, "Havo you go* much  Of a family?"  "Oh, yes," said ho, and ho smiled as  his mind rovortod to hia hundreds of  pupils.  "How many children?" nho persisted.  "Woll," Biiid Mr. Allon, with grefrt  earnostnosa, "I havo BOO and all boys!"  Tho good old lady waa speechless for  a moment.

When The7 Are Mated by lottery.  It was a cynic who said that marriage is a lottery, but in the province  of Smolensk, in Russia, this aphorism  has been reduced to a quarterly fact,  for four times a year there is held the  most remarkable lottery ever devised.  i. charge of a ruble is made for a  ticket, only ono prize is to be drawn,  and tt consists of the entire sum yielded  by the ��ale of the tickets, amounting to  5,00& rubles. The lucky winner of tne  prize is bound to marry a certain damsel if he takes the 5,000 rubles.  Should he be married he is at liberty to  turn over the money and tho lady to  any friend whom he may wish to put  in for such a good thing. Should the  lady, however, refuse to marry tho winner they are allowed to divido tho rubles between them.  Cannibalism In Au����r��*ho.  While the authoress of "A flower  Hunter In Queensland" saw nothing  but choiin in the beauty of the tropical  forests, except as regarded the snakes  and the stinging insects and tho chance  of meeting a casual crocodile, she  found, alas, no good thing among the  Australian natives. It is strange to  think tbat they are cannibals still, even  close to our towns. At one place whore  Mrs. Rowan staid the natives had killed  and eaten a Chinaman only a few days  beforo her visit At another place "they  told me," she says, "that on that Tery  afternoon high revelry had been going  on in the native camp as they feasted  off the roasted remains of an old woman, who had been allowed, against their  usual custom, to die a natural death the  day before."  Nor are these savages pleasant neighbors. A settler at whose house Mrs.  Rowan staid at Somerset, Cape York������  the only houso for many miles in that  part of Queensland���can still arm a  hundred men, if necessary, and gun>  and pistols hang ca th* walls, ready  loaded in case of sudden attaok. This  gentleman gave the authoress some  Spanish dollars, cemented together with  coral, which had been recovered from  the wreck of a warship which early in  this century ran ashore on a reef nem  the coast and whose orew were killed  and eaten by the natives. Of such tragic  memories Mrs. Rowan heard even more  in New Zealand, where "almost every  hill is the site of an old pah. Every  mountain, headland, rock and island  has soma history of its own���some grim  tale of savage barbarity or pathetio story  of lovo and courage."  A Plant Sacred.  Tlio plant known as vervain, whicb  is not distinguished for its beauty and  which grows nowadays utterly disregarded, was so eacrad to tho Druids  that they only gathered. it for their  divinations when the great dog star  arose, in order that neither sun not  Baoon should see tho deed.  1 V��t��ii'niiii In Uon_.rn.iB.

For this reason,  as well aa from innate humanity, tho  Turks are tolerant of them, although  visitors to tho city find them tuiamia-  ble. As a proof of their intelligence and  recognition of friends Major Johnson  relates this experience of his own:  One evening I was walking with an  English officer, when a dog came up and  licked his hand. He told mo to notice  that she would follow us to the boundary of her district, as he had onco petted  her and she had never forgotten it. Exactly as ho had said, she followed us a  little way and stopped short in the middle of tho street. Sho wagged her tail  and loofied wistfully after us, but did  not stir when��we called her.  A few nights afterward, returning  alone to my hotol, I passed tho same  spot, when I suddenly felt a cold nose  put into my hand and a tongue licking  my palm. I looked down and saw the  samo dog. She had recognized me as  having heen with her friend, the ofiicer,  and as before, she followed me to the  boundary of her district.  A Siamese Punishment.  Another "decreo of expulsion" has  been issued by the king of Siam, this  timo against one of his own officials,  Chow Pligh Rax, minister plenipotentiary, general adviser, etc., in which it  saidcthat "he shall be publicly stripped  of his Siamese honors,'' that he shall  then have his head shaved for tho better preservation of his health, and "that  ho Ghall be, after the expiration of seven  days, made to cut grass for the royal  elephants for the rest of his natural  life."���Advocate of India (Bombay).

The deceased  was well known throughout the Province, and held in very high esteem, j  lie died in the Itoyal Jubilee Hospital,  an institution which he hud done much  to build up and support.  There is some question as to the  merit of the company giving The Wise  Woman here, hut few are inclined to  give them credit for so much genius as  did Mr. Melville Parry in his telegram  from Kamloops. In many respects the  company is inferior to the organization  when it appeared here last year. This  should be lhe last season of the company, as it is kow constructed, on the  road.  Clara Mathes company will play a  > hortengagement in Nelson, beginning  Monday, June 29.

In many respects the fourth session  of the synod of the diocese of Kootenay  was a notable one. The annual address of the bishop was a review of the  work now being carried on by the  church and uigiug renewed energy  especially in the missionary, iiteld.  There was also a leugthy reference to  matters of worship, which was urged  upon the attention of churchmen. The  reports of the various committees indicate a satisfactory conditiou of affairs.
