Array ,;'^A^U-,^,  II  .^  A   U.  ��0T24  V  1905        %r  IA/B  VOLUME  IX.  NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1905.  NUMBEB 15  LOAFING IN  PAKLIAMENT  Are Members of the  British  House of Commons Loafers?  Rufus Isaas, the brilliant advocate,  in an interesting maiden speech, made  fie confee3ion that the House of Commons was something of a disappointment to him, writes T. V. O'Connor.  He had been accustomed to see things  done in a business-like way, and be was  surprised to find bow unbusiness like  the methods of the House ot Commons  were.  This is the first experience of every  young Parliamentarian, and the more  lie has been act ustomed to business like  vmethods outside the House the greateXJ  is his surprise, the profounder his  shock, when he enters that assembly.  The first six weeks of a young legis'a  tor's life are often the mo3t trying. He  often asks himself when he looks back  on the amount of time, trouble, and  money he has spent to get a place in  the House of Commons whether he has  not beena fool for his trouble. He finds  that instead of being an important personage there with a.possibility of making a career, he is regarded as an item  whose main function in life is to wait  about for hours doing nothing in order  that at the end of the time he may give  a silent and perhaps not a willing vote  ln favor of the leaders of the party to  which he belongs.  Mr. Lloyd George, who is now an  old Parliamentarian, commenting ox%  the speech of Mr. Rufus Isaacs, said  that veteran members got accustomed  tothe loafing of the Hotise of Commons, to its want of business method*-,  rt'oits.-utilitlesT"'' It. became a habit to  expect nothing but these things ; and  after a while they ceased either to interest or to bore.  Naturally, a member of Parliament  becomes an inveterate and incurable  loafer. Anything like steady work,  except when he has. some big bit of  business on hand, becomes almost impossible to him. He is accustomed to  sje every rational, man in the House of  Commons agreed that a certain reform  is necessary iu the interest of the people, and yet to see the measure which  embodies this reform blocked for ten,  ���' fifteen, twenty sessions in succession  __by-asmalLandobstinate minority.==H-h  beholds powerful Ministries and overwhelming majorities kept in complete  check by handfuls of men; and, in  short, he gets so accustomed to the  creaking, unwieldy, cumbrous, immutable Parliamentary machine that he  loses courage, hope, and even faith,  and sinks into the pessimistic conviction,that everything is for the worst,  and will remain for the worst in the  worst of all possible worlds.  It is, perhaps, difficult to explain to  an outsider why it is that work in the  House of Commons is thus difficult;  but I will try and make him understand. The first great cause is tbat  time is so cut up there. You rarely  know how long you would be free to  attend to any work. Divisions wait  .(like time and tide) for no man. Often  tbe division comes in the middle of  y��ur dinner; often when you have sat  down aud begun to work.  But, secondly, interruption from di-  r vision is but one of many interruptions.  There is always someone in tlfe outer  lobby that wants to see a member of  Parliament; it may be to wirepull  about a bill, or to ask a situation, or  perhaps to get a seat in tlfe gallery.  And, thirdly, all around^.the building  there is the ever constant sense of un  atmosphere of gossip, rumor, all the  other things which belong to a school,  not of scandal, perhaps, but of personal  views.  If youywant to realize how  much a  < loafer the British member is, yon have  only to compare theappearances of our  Legislature at Westminster with that  of any other Assembly in the world. I  know the Legislatures of America, and  I have often been in that of France. In  America politicians have to take their  politics seriously ; it is what I would  regard as little better than a dog's life,  especially if a man be a member of the  House of Representatives. I used to!  be appalled when a friend of mine, who  was a member of that body, told me of1  his occupations, and what he was expected to do. He was literally at the  beck and call of every one of his con^  stituents; he had to be their guide,  philosopher, friend, lawyer, supplicant,  representative, trustee. For one man  he had to see whether a new patent  could be got out-; for another to get a  place as a cadet at West Point; for  another to try and stop a rival from obtaining a postmastership ; and so on  through a. hundred, different details of  life which are done in other countries  not by the poor politician, but by the  solicitor, or the doctor, or some other  paid professional man. -  The member of either the House of  Representatives or of the Senate at  Washington has his seat allotted to  to him. That seat he does not often  leave during a Parliamentary debate.  He us-js it perhaps more, us an official  than I should like ; it is there that he  conducts his multifarious correspondence, and attends to his business,  public and private. But he is there ;  you don't find either tiie one chamber  orthe other of the legislature empty  throughout most of the day as you do  with us���public opinion in America  would not standit.-       "  Look at the condition of the House  just now ; you will see it at its worst.  At 5 o'clock the terrace is literally  crammed with visitors. It is a pretty  sight with all the beautiful,women of  London there, clad in the most beautiful-dresses'.* A garden party on a large  scale could not be prettier, and there is  nothing so pretty as a garden party at  this time of the year and in England,  where the light colors of summer suit  so well the blue eyes, the fair hair, and  the beautiful complexions of Englishwomen.  A stranger coming to such a sight,  and seeing theie three-fourths of the  members of the House of Commons  employed as cavaliers in attending to  beautiful dames, would forin a curious  idea of our Legislature, and of the seriousness with which Englishmen take  the duty of governing that Empire ��f  j^hi_ch^they__talk_so_muoh._____Ana=Irish_  member is credited with the suggestion  that a band should play every afternoon. I don't see any reason why iti  should not.- -The other day there was  a great crowd to see the pygmies; every  other day there is some celebrity or  curiosity trotted out for the amusement of the ladies who congregate on  this sacred spot. I am afraid I must  stick to my theme���that the House of  Commons is a house of loafers.  S A YERS AND  HEEN AN  How the News of the Fight  Was Received.  While a party of men waited in a  New York resort for tlie first news of  the prize fight between Britt and Nei-  son one of them said :  "Receiving the news of a light in  these days is nearly like seeing the  bout from the ringside. I reckon I  am the ouly man in this room who  was living at the time when Heenan  and Sayers met inside the ropes.  ' 'I was a boy at the time. I lived in  a town on the (Missouri river that was  about fi ve days'travel from St. Louis  by steamboat.- There was no telegraph  system there then. The news from  the outside came by stage or steamboat, and for the river town the latter  was the quicker way of getting the  mail.  "The whole country was stirred up  over the Heenan-Sayers, match. Interest was not coufiried to sporting  circles. I remember that my father,  who was an exemplary elder in the  Presbyterian church, talked so much  about the coming fight that my mother, who was one of the leaders of the  congregation, called him down iu the  presence of his children for being  worldly-minded.  4)  "The only daily newspapers received  iu my town were printed in St. Louis,  aud those who took them were yearly  subscribers. They were sent by boat.  The papers were confided to the clerk  of., the boat and he had the bundles  thrownoff at the landing.  ;���������: "In. some way^ my father learried  that a fast steamer was to leave St.  Louis with the papers tliat contained  the news of the Heenan-Sayers'affair.  The steamboat was due at my town  Sunday morning. The night before,  my father called me out to the barn  and gave me a message, which I was  to deliver on the following morning.  " 'On your way back,' he said, land  before you go to Sunday School, run  down to tl.e levee and if the stpamer  from. St. Louis is in sight wait until  she lauds and get ray St. Louis paper.  Bring io up to the store, as I have to  go there in the- morning before I go to  church. I have spoken to your mother  The weather for the annual field day  sports ofthe schools was all that could  be desired, and-the event afforded great  enjoyment to those who took part aud  to the spectators.  A public meeting will be held at  Kaslo ou the 25th inst. t<> consider the  desirability of forming a horticultural  society for that district as at present  defined by the Act.  Work at the city power plant is now  proceeding most satisfactorily.   It is  believed that   notwithstanding the de-!  lays caused   by   litigation,   the plant  will bein operation April 1st,  The Kootenaian announces that tlie  owners ofthe Beatrice Mines intend to  abouTit, so you will not need to- get7  her consent.. Just go away quietly  after breakfast.'  "I carried out my father's instructions. When I got to the levee I was  surprised to find him there, Not ouly  was lie .'waiting' for the arrival of the  steamer, but several other citizens  were on hand.  -"All the talk was about the prize  fight. Tlie postmaster of the town,  who wsis an elder in my father's  church, was more vehement than the  others, for he said if John C. Heenan  didn't lick Tom Sayers lie would resign ottlce. I remember this because  I had heard a number of men say that  they believed that the postmaster  would never give, up his job until he  died.  "It was the most excited crowd I  had ever seen on the levee. When the  steamer came to her landing the citizens made a rush for the gang plank  before it touched the shore, and one,  the landlord of the leading hotel, fell  into the water and was barely rescued.  The clerk of the boat was nearly  mobbed before he could hand out the  papers.  "When they read that Heenan was  the victor they sent up a cheer that  "When we reached his pew the minister had just risen to deliver the opening invocation. As soon as the amen  was pronounced my. father whispered  to my mother���I was seated between  them :���  " 'Heenan licked that Englishman,  all right, as I said he would.' '  "My mother made no reply, but she  looked ninny things. Wben,��fre.ser-  vice was over the wife of another elder  whose pew was just ahead of ours,  shook hands with my mother nnd  asked her if all was well. My mother  replied, right off the bat:���    .,  " 'Philip informs me that Heenan  won.' I  EVENTS AND  GOSSIP  Things Talked of During the  Week in Nelson.  Itis fitting that the hundredth an  niversury of the great  and   decisive  battle of Trafalgar should be celebrated  by   the    subjects   of   King   Edward  throughout   his   vast, empire.     That  battle decided that Great Britain forall  time   should  remain  mistress of the  seas, and to Nelson belonged the credit  I of winning the battle.   No hero in Bri-  "Phillip was my father.     The good   tish history deserved  better, than Nel-  sister who   had beard .the news from j son to have his fame perpetuated, and  it is to the honor of the British people  the world over that to-day they come  my mother said :���  " 'I am so glad.   I must hurry home  to tell Richard���he was unable  to be  together to-do   homage to   the   man  here this morning on account of unex- ] whose name shall live forever.   It is  pected, business at the office.1  "Richai'd was the postmaster whom j  particularly appropriate that the citizens of a city bearing the name of the  r.    . ,, ������'���', ,     .    ,    ,'great naval hero should make this day  I had seen on the levee, and who had ,& .  ������   ������  sworn that he would resign if Heenan  failed to win.' If I have hada tendency  to be a little Sporty now and then I  lay it to the interest which the good  citizens of my town evinced in tho  I-Ieenan-Sayers fight."  GRAVES ARE  LEFT OPEN.  An    Innovation   in   Toronto  Cemeteries.  What was considered an innovation  in tlie cemeteries of Toronto only a  year ago bids fair to become the pre-  vailing custom,.ho>hely,,ihatiOf../placing a screen only oyer an open grave  after the body has been lowered, and  putting flowers on it as though laying  them on a covered grave. It is taken  advantage of by many people in that  city���both rich and" poor���who request  that the screen be placed on top of the  open grave, and not that it be filled in.  The idea is tliat the/shovelling in of  the earth over the coffin and the harrowing sound of its following upon the  casket is heartrending to the mourners.  the occasion of general rejoicing.  '' William Blakemore, accidental editor of the Tribune, has had the misfortune during the.past week to'have  to diet himself on leek twice. One  would think that with all the experience of the food'in question that Mr.  Blakemore has had in the years he has  spent in Canada, from Glace Bay to  Nelson, that he would swallow his  medicine without making such very  wry faces. There are two kinds ot  apology. One is the gentleman's  apology given unreservedly and  straightforwardly, w-heu he discovers  his mistake ; the other is the whine bf  a cur under an uplifted whip. The  demonstrations lately afforded in Nelson, belong,to. the Ja Iter species., First  the Tribune surprised the public with'  the statement that Capt. .Gore had  asked the Tribune to contradict a report that had appeared iu the Daily  News. Now, a contradiction in the  Tribune would do no good in Nelson,  and would not be read any where else.  Moreover the report referred to had  never appeared in the the Daily News.  Capt. Gore promptly repudiated the  Tribune's claim torepiesent him. Then  an apology was made, with a.nasty  snarl at tlieend like the revival of courage in a cur when the whip is dropped.  After the committal prayer has been  read, the body is lowered to the grave, j The second occasion was a leport of an  and  the men  usually  there   to fill in j interview   with  J.J.

This is saying a  great deal, for this really talented  young actor has presented us with  many pieces, and iu every one of them  he has scored a success.  AN UNCALLED  FOR ATTACK.  The capture of the Montana murderer at Vancouver the other day,  once more demonstrates the fact that  the police of this Province are a vigilant and intelligent body of men. Although the capture was made in Vancouver, the work of tracking and locating the fugitive was done by W. H.  Bullock-Webster, of the Provincial  Police at Nelson, and Chief Jarvis.  As soon as they had been notified that  Remy had crossed into the-Province,  they began making investigations,  witii the result that within a few hours  it was known that he had been in  Nelson and had left for the coast. The  Vancouver police were notified, and  the arrest speedily followed.- It is  men of the stamp of Mr. Bullock-  Webster and Chief Jarvis who have  won for British Columbia the enviable  distinction of being the best guarded  Province iu the Dominion.  "Ihe  Dominion   Government  Again to Blame.  John Houston has left Nelson, and  there is no reason why he should be regarded as a factor in the city's afrairs,  nor is it manly to kick him when he is  down. This is probably the general  opinion of the people amongst whom  he .lived so long, .and even his'  greatest enemyawill admit that thereis  no good,.end to be gained in perpetuating the feud. The slur that the Tribune attempts to cast upon John Houston, although framed in the shape of a  "dispatch" from Victoria, is paltry and  mean. No one will believe that there  is any correspondent in Victoria so  foolish or idiotic as to send out that  "dispatch," and it seems as if there is  only one paper in the Province that  would be mean enough to print it. .So  far as Premier McBride is concerned, it  is not likely he has ever given the subject of Mr.'Houston's resignation from  the Legislature a second thought, and  "certainly Speaker-Pooley~is'not losing  any sleep over the matter. As far as  Mr. Houston's debts are concerned, it  is understood tliat they are pretty well  confined to his friends, so his old-time  opponents are not, interested in them  ���financially or otherwise.  There is no place in the world where  anian should be more contented and  happy than in Nelson, yet attempts at  self-destruction are frequent, if not always successful.  Kaslo has organized a brass band,  and so far there has been no protest on  the part of the citizens.  Among the visitors to Nelson this  week were Mr. and Mrs. G. D. Robertson, of Victoria, who have been  spending their honeymoon in the  Kootenays. Mr. Robertson was married to Miss Winnifred Ethel Cullin at  Victoria on Wednesday of last week.  Tbe bride is the youngest daughter of  the late William Cullin, and sister of  Wm. H. Cullin, of the Government  printing-office. She is related to Hon.  R. F. G''cen, and the happy couple  visited with _\Ir.<--. Green at Kaslo for  three days.  The judges, Rev. F. H. Graham and  E. A. Crease, awarded the prize given  by the Sons of England for the best  essay on Trafalgar Day to Joseph Ingram, a pupil of Nelson High School.  The judges highly commended the essays of Albert Middleton, Amy Swan-  nell, Peter Turner, Ethel Ritchie,  Charles Motley and Eya McVicar.  A bitter attack is made on the attorney-general in connection with the  partitioning if the judicial district of  Kootenay. It is as uncalled for as it is  malevolent.. In fact, as we shall  proceed to show presently, the fault  of the delay in court proceedings in  the Kootenays, caused by the refusal  of Judge Forin to act owiug to his commission, issue I in 1896, not covering  the newly created district'of West  Kootenay, is entirely tuat of the department of justice at Ottawa.  Last session of the Legislature the  County Courts Act was remodelled, and  provision was made for tbe division of  the Kootenay judicial district into two  parts, East and West Kootenay. In  accordance with the authority the authority thereby vested in the local government an order-in-councii was passed iu July last creating the new districts. There were several reasons for  this���the greater convenience of the  public, the saving of expense iu the  administration of justice, and the relief of tbe judge from the excessive duties of covering so large a district, and  the consequent increase in efficiency.  Tlie immediate justification of the  order-in-council was the provision made  by the Dominion government for the  salary of the second judge, and as  soon as it was passed a copy was forwarded to Ottawa wiih a covering  letter intimating the requirements of  the situatiou. No notice was taken of  this, and the responsibiIity7.f ensuing  complications rests with the Dominion  government, and not at all with the  attorney-general.; It follows, therefore, that the invective which has been  hurled against the latter on account of  "con venience or the welfare of the public," which is so seriously in question,  should be directed to the Hon. Chas.  Fitzpatrick, Minister of Justice, who  is notorious for his delays, in dealing  with British Columbiajudicialappointments.  It may be stated that the order-ln-  council abolishing the county court of  Kootenay and creating the county  courts of- East and-West���Kootenay'm-  lieu thereof, provided- that it should  come into effect on the 1st day of October. The department of justice was  notified of this on the 18th day of July  and was requested to re-form the commission issued to the judges exercising  jurisdiction in the county court of  Kootenay. \No action was taken until  the attention ofthe Minister of Justice  was again called to it by telegrams  from the attorney-general on October  the 3rd and 4th. These facts might  have been ascertained by simply telephoning to the attorney-general's office.  Apropos of this the Kootenay Mail  just to hand has tlie follo%ving paragraph : "Some sensational developments are circulated about West Kootenay being without a county court  judge by un oversight in the proclamation creating the new conrt district of  Eust Kootenay, but Judge Forin declares that tbe matter was much overrated and has taken steps to have the  technicality rectified." It is evident,  therefore, that ? Judge Forin, who  created the supposed deadlock, does  not take so serious a view of the situation as some others, whose aDtipathy  to the government outweighs all considerations of truth, fairness and common honesty.���Victoria Colonist.

Referring t_ the' agitation by  eastern boards of trade because the  Dominion government failed to disallow the statute imposing a tax  upon commercial travelers, the  New Westminster Columbian suggests that we should hand over the  province to these eastern wiseacres  and let them run, it entirely for their  own benefit. It makes reference  to the eastern hog as a most rapacious species of the porcine family,  whose appetite is as keen as his capacity for absorption is enormous.

The St. John  Only si\ are now left of the fourteen who formed Sir Wilfrid Laurier's cabinet at the beginning. These  ure the premier himself, Mr, Scott,  Sir Kichard Cartwiight, Sir Fred  Borden, Mr. Fisher and Mr. Fielding. Sir Oliver Mowat vvas appointed lieutenant-governor of Ontario and has since died. Sir Louis  Davies is a judge of tbe supreme  court of Canada. Mr. Geoffrion  died in 1899. Mr. Tarte retired in  1902, and Mr. Blair in 1902. Mr.  Patterson and Sir Henri Joly were  not in the cabinet until a year alter  it was formed, though they and Mr.  Fitzpatrick were members of the  administration. It is altogether  likely that Sir Richard Cartwright  will soon follow Sir William Mulock  into unofficial life, though he will  retain his position as senator and  will claim tbe pension.

C, this second day of Ojloher, 1903.  ROBERT A. RENWICK,  Deputy ARKesscraiid Collector, Nelson AskphhuiciiI and Collecting District.  The Origin of the Loving Cup.  THB .loving- cup Ib very common  nowadays, and we see lt everywhere.     But   many   years   ag.4  there   were  no  such   things   a*  these queer three handled affairs, and  the following story tells how they firsl  happened to be made:  Once upon a time centuries before us.  there lived a great and powerful king,  who was extremely fond. of hunting.  He was one day ln a' forest pursuing a  stag, but it was so fleet and clover that  lt eluded him and his band of followers, and led them entirely out of thelt  way. After wandering about ln a  hopeloss fashion they finally came upon  a. little hut, and the king himself dismounted and rapped smartly upon tha  door.  A young girl answered his knock, and  soon showed the men the right path.  The king was a/bout to go, when he saw  a well near the house, and at the sight  of ithe clear water Immediately felt  thirsty, and, going back, asked the gin  for a drink. AVlthout hesitation sho  went Into the house and came out with  an earthen Jug filled with the well  water. But, instead of offering his  royal -majesty the handle, as most people would do, she held that Herself, and  handed him the cup the wrong way.  The king said nothing, thanked the  girl, and he and his band soon found  their way out of the wood.  But when be reached his palace he-  determined to reward the girl for giving him the water and at the same time  to teach her a lesson ln politeness.  Sending to his Jeweler, he bade him-  make a silver cup, with two handles,  and deliver it to the young girl, without a word as to whence lt came.  Perhaps a month after this the king-  again hunted In that same forest,  sought the hut and asked the girl for  another drink of water.  This time she entered the house and  came out with a beautiful silver cup,  full of the sparkling water. "Now,"  thought the king, "she haj certainly  learned a lesson." But never was he_,  more mistaken, for the poor, Ignorant  girl took a handle In each hand, and  for the second time offered her liege  lord nothing save the side of the cup.  The king rode away deeply perplexed.  He resolved to teach the girl the pollts  way to hand a cup without directly rebuking her, and many were the hours  he spent in cudgelling his brains for  some way In -which to do it. At last a  bright Idea struck him, and he sent for  his Jeweler a second time. "Make mc/*"  said he to the man, "a silver cup, heavily chased, and with my royal crest,  and put three handles on it." The jeweler, much surprised���for remember, ne  such thing had ever��been heard of up  to this time���did as he was told, am3  soon the mug was finished. As before,  the king "had It privately sent to the  girl who lived In the little faut.  One day not long after this for th*  third time he rode Into that forest, and;,  taking the now well-known path, soon  reached the cottage. Dismounting, he  knocked at the door and asked humbly  for a drink of clear water. :',.  The girl immediately came out wltfc  the beautiful three-handled cup, and,  taking-two of the handles in her bands,  she offered him the third.  So the king roda away well pleamd  with'his strategy and, reaching home,  ordered three-handled cups to be made  In every sort of ware, and they became so popular that we now hav��  tfhem In all our shops and stores,  Shortly y ��fier Walt TVilarmii ���  "Leaves of Grass" made Its appearance, J. T. Trowbrldg-e was walking  with Lowell In af:ambrldge, when the  latter pointed out a doorway sign,  "Groceries," with the letters aet zigzag, to produce a bizarre effect. "That,"  -said he, "is AValt AVhitnian���with very  common goods inside."  A Philadelphia paper declares that  Archbishop Ryan was recently about  to take a train for Baltimore at the  Broad Street Station, when a young  man accosted him, saying: "Your face  ls .familiar, where In-hell have I seen  you7" "I really don't know," replied  theiarchbishopTblahdryr''wha.t"part"of_  hell do you come from?"  M-any years agt), when Senator In-  ffail3 was in the Senate, oleomargarine  was a bone of contention! The debate  led Ir.g-alls to utiler one of those epigrammatic sentences which made hln.  famous. "I have never, to my knowledge, fasted oleomargarine." said In-  salls, "but I have stood In the presence  of genuine butter with awe for Its  strength and reverence for Its antiquity."  A lady carrying on mission work ln  the slums was teaching a little colorad  girl to spell. She used a pictorial  primer, and over ea��h word was Us accompanying picture. Polly glibly  spelled "o-x, ox," and "b-o-x, box,",etc.  But the teacher thought that she was  making "right rapid progress." So sho  put her hand over the picture, and  said, "Polly, what does 'o-x' spell?"  "Ox," ans-wered Polly, nimbly. "How  lo you know that It spells 'ox,' Polly?"  'Seed his tall," replied the apt Polly.  Company,  ANO TO RENT  See  Also Selling Agents for  -\  Canada's Leading Piano tf}Z^i_}s*i~^~r^&^r^**^-Trvtr!K-  \  THE NELSON ECONOMIST  GENERAL NEWS.
