NUMBER 18  SULTAN GOES  TOPE AY  Attempted Assassination During the Ceremony.  As a military and religious chief, as  the temporal and spiritual heir of Mahomet, the Sultan who is also Galifa  (Commander of the Faithful), is  obliged by his religious duties to go  every Friday between 12 and 1, in great  pomp, to a mosque of his choice, and  there make his reglementary prayer.  This official ceremony is called the sal-  amlik. It was during this ceremony  tbat the latest attempt to assassinate  him was made.  Notwithstanding the little taste he  has for public exhibitions, Abdul  Hamid has not refused to show himself ,to his people once a week, and has  not missed a single salamlik since he  was elected to the throne thirty years  ago.  The predecessors of Abdul Hamid II  were wont to vary each week the scene  of their devotions.   Abdul Hamid has  changed that custom.  He has had built, in close proximity  to the palace, the Mosque or Mamidie,  and goes there only. All the mosques  in Constantinople are, so far, away-!  Hamldie is not more than three hundred yards from the entrance of Yldiz-  Kiosk, his favorite palace, in tlie  grounds of..which he takes the only  promenade he enjoys.  The trip to Homideis short, but as it  is outside of the palace grounds, the  religious law is respected. and the Sultan as pleased as is possible under the  circumstances. It is the only hreak in  the voluntarily seclusion of this extraordinary man.  Trie public'is not permitted in the  neighborhood of the mosque,"nor along  the approaches to it. Windows are  reserved for the Diplomatic Corps iu a  pavillion in Yildiz-Kiosk. overlooking  the mosque. Facing it at a short distance is a terrace from which foreigners  are allowed to view tbeceremony when  presented by their Minister. Guards  are placed at the entrance of it, and  allow no one to pass but those inscribed  on the day's list.  Formerly there wasa stand on this  terrace, but sortie visitor having been  indiscreet enough to remark that an  attempt of assassination could easily be  ^made froiirtherefitwas-razedHhe next"  day, and during many months no one  was allowed to witness the selamlik.  Upon the representations of tiie Diplomatic Corps, the permission was again  granted, but the stand has not been rebuilt. One has to stand, but it seems  one can see better than formerly.  To the left, at the summit of a short  hill, stands the palace. The mosque is  in the middle of a closed park, wonderfully white, small,.simple and oven  graceful for a mosque. Toward the  right is the Bosphorous, with its forests of masts and bordered with mosquitoes, Anally losing itself it, the distance.   Above, a spotless sky.  It Is 11.45. The troops begin to appear. They come from the right,  matching to the road, leading from the  palace to the mosque and lining up on  both sides of it.  Large detachments guard each end  of. it. * The fence around the mosque is  surrounded. The cayalry Is massed to  the right, barring all approach from  that quarter, which is the side of. the  ��"* '/A       ':.%.:.:  All the different corps are represented ; 'the infantry dressed * in blue,  the engineers in maroon, the marines  in dark blue with the large- collar  trimmed with red ; ibeSyriau Zouave3  in very light blue embroidered in red,  and with theirgreen-tasseled turbans.  In all, there are thirty corn pan es,  with a total of about 3,000 men.  When the troops are placed the  cortege appears. Four carriages advance at a walk���closed carriages and  With   blinds   half down.     It  is the  harem",    guarded   by   blacy   eunuchs j 'TT-TTj]   TjTTTX E  wearing long top coats.

WUJXIAJN  ular intervals, tlie high dignitaries of  the court, the Ministers, Generals,  Governors, all in gorgeous uniforms  covered with g< Id braid and orders.  During the whole ceremony there is  a continuous going back and forth of  servants and valises, containing  changes of regalia as the ceremony  proceeds.  Thc horses appear led by hand. They  are mounted by two young men���the  Sultan's sons.  A child not over 8 or 9 years old, in  full uniform with decorations on his  breast and a sword by his side, which'  seems to give hiiTK great trouble walks  to the door of the mosque and remains  standing. A dozen young officers, the  oldest not over 12, follow him and take  place about him. These are the Sultan's grandson and his. military suite.  Twelve-thirty. The officers charged  with the surveillance of the terrace  order the closing of all" parasols and  sunshades. The Imperial carriage appears, advancing at a walk, driven by a  magnificent coachman (kavass) in a  light blue costume most elaborately  embroidered in gold.  Oti its appearance it is saluted by a  cold, mechanical hurrah gi\*en by the  troops who present arms. The Sultan  is alone on the back seat-, with the  Minister of War facing him. All about  the carriage is the Albanian guard on  foot, in several rows','-'and as close together as walking will allow,   a  The Sultan is simply dressed and  wears the fez.

A half hour passes. The troops.begin to leave, passing by the mosque's  door and on to their quarters. The  prayer is ended.  ���A carriage, drawn by two admirable  gray horses, draws up before the  mosque. The kavass who brings this,  equipage leads it on foot ancl is dressed  in red and gold.  The formalities are most minutely  arranged. The Sultan, who arrives in  landau, must leave in a "dauraont,"  which he drives himself. The harness  is gilded, the wheels are gilded, the  axles are gilded, the body of the carriage is gilded���everything and everybody has more or less gilt, save the  Sultan.  Tlie avenue is now almost deserted,  all the troops have gone. The\ were  there not for his protection? The  truth is tbat as the religious law requires tbatthe people, or at least some  of them, shall witness the ceremony,  Abdul Hamid II. complies with it in a  way he deems safe. His soldiers are  part of his people and represent the  others.  As soon as he has taken his place in  the carriage, the top is raised���it is  simply because the suu i.s so hot?���  and the carriage returns to Yildiz-Kiosk  surrounded by ��� the, Albanians who  seem to be pushing it, so close are thoy.  The carriages of the harem follow ;  the noble ladies have not moved ; nor  has even a curtain. Tlie horses, more  fortunate, have been unhitched. In  spite of the luxury of the ceremony,  the chief feature of is theennuiand evident disquiet.  Will Not Compete With Her  S trenu ous Sisters.  To. declare that a little man is at a  disadvantage is to be overwhelmed  with "Look at the Japs," and "Think  of   Bobs    and    Napoleon   and "  There follows a list of the world's great  little men, which almost persuades one  that the lack of inches is the root of all  achievement. In spite of statistics,  however, it remains a fact that a little  man is extraordinarily sensitive about  his bievity, wttile he is fortunate it" he  does not assume a pornpousair in order  to impress the world-with the truth of  Dr. Watts'remark, "The mind's the  stature of the man." .Little men have  succeeded where'many a sluggish giant  has failed ignobly ; but the tall man is  yet the "eternally tit" specimen,  whether we turn to the tailor's model  or to the hero of the woman novelist.  The artist who would depict a small  and scrubby "Adam" as an ideal, of  physical manhood would speedily be  made aware of his mistake.  Butwhen weconsider lovely woman,  matters are different indeed. It is true  that Tennyson wrote about the woman  who was "..'    .  "A daughter of the gods, divinely tall."  While such an overwhelming person  might be very much at home among  thedemi-gods, she would assuredly be  unappreciated among the sous of men.  It is'a small person who is both delightful and dangerous. In the days of tier  childhood she places her tiny red shoes  upon the heck of her doting father,  who can play the part of stern "governor" to the boys, but who is as wax  in. the bands of his small daughter.  She is.so frail and dainty that it would  be a matter of cruelty to refuse her anything, and so she-has her own way  from irifaucy to old-ladyhood, and, by  some wonderful process of inward lis-  cipline, she escapes being spoiled.  The novelist and his comrade-inr  falsehood, the poet, have been fond of  je.'erring to woman's tears as if they  were eminently becoming to the.feminine countenance. As a matter.of  fact, there is nothing, except, perhaps,  the polo hat, which is so trying to the  features as what the flowery writer  terms "a.passion of sobs." The average" w oirTair* i irar'fi t"***o f=vvWp��"*~ i sT"d is?"  tinctly unpleasing, both to sight and  hearing, for not only her eyes, nose  and mouth are wierdly exercised, but  there arechokings and gurglings which  are far from being soothing or melodious. But the little woman bas'reduced weeping to a fine art, and it is  so pathetic and yet winsome��a figure  when giving way to grief that her tears  are even more dangeraus than her  amiles. They are so formidable a  weapon, indeed, that she resorts to  them only when all others have poved  ineffective.  Asa rule, the little wonun is amiable,  even to other and larger women. But  when she is otherwise, she becomes so  tCveetly venomous that her sisters rise  up and call her'a perfect cat." She  is never openly and frankly hostile,  but makes the most maddening remarks with an air of childish inno-  oeuce that completely deceives a man  and makes him wonder what she has  said or done to make the other woman  "so awfully down on the poor little  thing."- She is the one who remarks  on the very trying shade of brown you  are wearing, and quietly makes you  uncomfortable for an hour by concluding, "1* didn't know you ever wore  that shade. It requires such a perfect  complexion to carry it off well." 3he  is always sq commiserating and sympathetic that one is forced to fume in  silence, lest the little woman should  wonder what she had said to offend, in the language, "I really didn't  dream of anuoying you. But then. I  believe in perfect sincerity." '  The little woman knows better than  to endeavor to*compete with her strenuous sisters. Her role is a gentle and  childlike ingenuousness while she assumes a helplessness which she is far  from feeling. Her shoelaces are always  con ing untied and she is so sorry to give  so much trouble. V Her gloves also are  frequently in need of being buttoned,  and what pretty little grey affairs they  are, and what a very small hand itis,  anil wouldn't a plain gold ring be becoming to it! Then the little woman  is very, very mucli surprised.  The perverted proverb which, I believe, came out ofjCalifornia���"a little  widow is a dangerous thing"���is practically and profoundly true. ��� The most  acute form that b_|e little woman can  take is the widow.j She was bewitching in the pitik mtjslin frock of childhood, she was a vision of girlish loveliness In her bridal gown of white  duehesse when she "came in on her  father's arm ;" but as a pensive widow  with the daintiest white edge to h-r  bonnet, and a frightened, appealing  expression in her eyes, she is a sight to  make Saitit Anthony drop the prefix  in his name and devote himself to coh-  sohng this extremely forlorn creature.  She seems to need frequent and persistent consolation, for she is so utterly  unfitted to battle with the world. Her  grief is a sacred thing at first, but after  a time the would-be comforter ventures  to fell her that ishe is too frail and sen-  sitive to be alone, that she needs to be  protected, and that ;lie is an enthusiastic believer in the policy of pt-rtec-  tion. So the little widow ceases to refer to "poor dear John," pensively puts  his photograph away, and when the  world beholds her in a fetci ing cos-  stume of heliotrope and silver grey-it  smiles knowingly, for it knows there  will, soon be a quiet wedding, on account, as a thoughtljfss reporter once  expressed'it; "of a recent bereavement  in the bride's, family."���CanadieLne  iu Toronto Saturday Night."

CASE FOR BETTER TERMS.  _ -Premier McBride, it appears, is responsible for the unspeakable crime of  having had a communication from Premier Gouin on the subject of better,  terms. W hat the former'satt.itude is  in regard to the co-operation with the  other provinces will be disclosed later.  on. It will probably be found consist-,  ent    with     previous   representations  made to Ottawa, not ouly by the McBride administration but precedingad-  ministrations, of which good Liberals  like Messrs. W. C. Wells, J. D. Prentice and W. W. B- Mclnnes.were  members. The general tenor of these  representations has- been that while  there is on aspect of the case for better  terms in which all the provinces are  equallyinterested andean co-operate,  there are conditions in British Columbia which differentiate its claims from  those of all and justify special consideration and special treatment. From  lack of knowledge of the subject some  persons, whose attitude ou the question is inexcusable, fail to realize the  distinction. If British Columbia claims  were settled uniformly with those of  all the other provinces she would relatively be no better off", and in one  material respect would be worse off*.  We are glad to see, however, that the  demand of thc provincial authorities  for an impartial investigation of all  facts has at last been locally recognized.  That is all really that the province  asks; and if it fails to prove its case  then the question will be forever set at  at rest.���Colonist,  Harry Haywood is lying seriously ill  at the Grove.  Tom Rankin  is in from Erie Siding  looking hale and hearty.  Ed. Ferguson, the wholesale liquor  man, is back from a business trip to  tho Boundary.  A few months ago the Liberals of  Nelson scoffed at the idea of there  ever being a united local Conservative  party, yet it took only a few days to  bring about that result. No good end  can he gained by reference to the  causes which have so long kept the  Consei vt tives of Nelson apart; it is  sufficient to admit tbat the split has  existed for years, and that to-day the  local Conservative party is happily  united ai.d ready to face the Grit foe.  The only question which provoked  discussion at the meeting was  the advisabi.it of completing  the organization that evening. One  or two urged delay,' but this was  disposed of by an almost, unanimous  resolution that the election of officers  take place at once. Hon. Mr. McBride  was elected honorary president. The  election of R. S. Lennie as president  was    particularly    fortunate. Mr.  Lennie, although a young mau, has developed great force as a lawyer, aud  has been retained in many of the leading cases tried iu the interior dur-  the past live or six years. He is  steadily rising'iu his profession and the  Conservative Club is to be congratulated on having secured him as its first  president. Dr. Rose and William  Blakemore, the presidents of the two  old associations, were selected -vice-  presidents by acclamation.' The other  officers elected are: secretary, Wm.  Spry ; treasurer, W. E. Koch ; executive," W.E. McCandlish, R. W. Han-  ningtou, W. A. Macdonald, P. Lamont,  G. Thomas, W. McLean, J: E. .Annable, AV; Irvjhe, WoE. Gosnell, E? C.  Wragge, H. Bird and D. M. Carley.

A. Macdonald, K. C,  City Solicitor, was instructed to use  every effort to have the matter tried at  once. Mr. Macdonald communicated  at once with the result that the case  will come up before the.Full Court  November 22.  FEOM THE  STRAY POETS  Things that Furnish the Muse  with Inspiration.

His  Honor iu passing sentence commented  on the previous good name of McKee,  his youth, and on the fact that the  harm done had been made good as far  as that was possible. He said he could  send him to prison for 14 years, bu.  having taken all things into consideration he would sentence hiin to five  months imprisonment. ...-;.,.,  It would be a great disappointment  to the citizen? of Nelson if one year  passed away without the Nelson Operatic Society 'presenting an opera. Tbe  opera selected by the society is "The  Gondoliers," and a great musical treat  is in store for the music-lovers of Nelson next January, when the presentation will take place.  Premier. McBride and Hon. R. :F.  Green received a spit ndid reception  throughout the Trout Lake District.  At a large, meeting held at.Trout Lake,  the Premier delivered a lengthy speech,  iu which he..reviewed the history of  his   government, and   showing what  inrd"bee"n~doh^to restore"lhe credit~of  Province. The educational question  was dealt with and the .whole speech  was endorsed by all present. Mr.  Green made a pleasant speech, and was  loudly applauded.  Frank..

Mr, Clarke, years ago, occupied the proud position of being poet  laureate of Winnipeg. He also wrote  an. operetta, which was produced years  ago at the prairie capital. Many of his  old time Winnipeg friends, now resident in Nelson, will give him a hearty  grasp of the hand when he reaches the  Kootenay metropolis.  There was much disappointment felt  in Nelson when it wasaunounced from  Vancouver last Wednesday that at the  request of E. V. Bodweil, K. C., the  hearing of the appeal in the West  Kootenay Power & Light Co. vs. Nelson was set down on the list with the  understanding that it would be heard  at tbe January sittings in Victoria.  The reason given by Mr. Bodweil was  that owing to negotiations lor a settlement there had been some delay in  making up tbe appeal b:>ok, and he  would not be ready before the present  sittings terminated.   When this matter  The death occurred at St. Joseph's  mspital, Victoria, last Monday, of  James Orr, one of the oldest resident."  of the Province and a pioneer who had  a remarkable and interesting record.  He was easily the best- known of- the  "old-timers," says the Colonist, and  having spent the later years of his life  in Victoria was a familiar figure ou the  streets, infirmities, of age, while preventing him from engaging in any active occupation, permitting him to  stroll-about greeting his old-friends.  He was employed in tbe service of the  Provincial Government during 1901-2-3  and subsequently had been in receipt  of a pension. Deceased leaves a wife  resident in Vancouver.. The latter's  sister was wife of the late Dan McGil-  livray, and another sister is Mrs. D. G,  Marshall of Davis, Marshall & McNeill. The late Mr. Orr was a native  of Liverpool, England, but spent some  time of his early youth on the Isle of  -Mani"HH-H=Hedeft^England-for"America-in  the year 1835. Tbe passage accross tlie  Atlantic from Liverpool to New York  occupied eight weeks and New York  was a comparatively small place in  those days. On arrival in the United  States he proceeded to Cbilicothie on*  the Siota river, and at Kingston, Ohio  he bought a place, but two years later  he gave it. up and came to Canada in  1837. the time of the McKenzie rebellion, eventually settling in Stratford,  Ont., where he was engaged in commercial pursuits for some years. The  country was then nearly all bush.  There were no roads and few settlers,  and the mails were carried on horseback ; but being a beautiful country  und good land it began to fill upfasl  ufter the rebellion of 1838-40. In 1S58,  upset by family considerations and impelled by a roving spirit, he developed  the idea of penetrating to British Columbia, a project of no mean proportions at that time, the route being by  Panama. * He remained some eight  months in California, and upon reaching British Columbia, then a crown  colony, he engaged in mining interests,  and wus sulicMjnpi.iiy elected as a representative in LUe legislative council for  Cariboo east, with the title of Honorable, a positiou.he held from 1833 to  1865. Sir Henry Crease was the speaker  of the body, and of tlie twelve members who composed it Mr. Orr was the  only one that remained.

EDITORIAL COMMENT.  There is some consolation in  knowing tbat if Nelson has failed  in getting tbe much-needed court  house there have been few public  buildings erected in any part of lhe  Province. This vvas on account of  the depleted condition of the treasury when the McBride Government  came into power. The Province i.s  now in a good financial position, and  there will be many public buildings  erected in the near future, and lhe  Nelson court house may be included  in the list.

Howard -Hun ter, the mueh-  respected registrar of insurance for  tho Province of Ontario, father of  Chief Justice Hunter, of this province, told the Insurance Institute  tbe other day lhat he believed the  Canadian people had '"honest in-  slincts," and that it would be found  that Canadian insurance companies  shared in the scrupulousness that  have made Canadian institutions a  model lo the world. In .this connection, it uiigh be remarked that a  local insurance man informed The  Economist the other day that Canadian insurance companies, which  formerly found it difficult to secuie  business in the United States, are  now beating lhe American companies on their own ground.

The Premier reached  bete hist Sunday night from the  coast and since then,'.with Hon,  Mr, Green, spent several days in the  Slocan district^ While the visit is  purely official in its character, Mr.  McUride stud Mr. Green have had  ample testimony of the popularity  of their Government in the Upper  Country. Wherever lhey visited,  lhey found that the policy of the  Government vvas heartily endorsed.  At Kaslo, Mr. Green's old home,  the citizens tendered the touring  ministers a splendid meeting, and  certainly they have no reason to  complain of tbe cordiality of their  reception at Nelson. It speaks well  for the popularity ot the Government, that the two ministers .were  enabled without any great difficulty  to effect a reconciliation between the  two sections of the Conservative  Party here. They left on Friday  morning for the Boundary country,  where they will meet with many  true Conservatives.  BRIAR  PIPES.

T T ONDERFUL stories are told  fl Tl of the powers of tihe Hindu  \ I 3 faklrs- Careful attention to  VJL^ their "tricks has not discovered their secret -with  any certainty, but Captain James Parker, the English traveler, who has jus!  ���returned from a tour of India, gives it  as his belief that hypnotism la the  means by which they accomplish their  moat sitartling Illusions. One incident  whioh he -describes seems to bear out  his view.  The trick which ls acknowledged to  be the greatest of these Hindu mystic  performances, says Captain Parker,  and the one that has been described  by trustworthy persons too often to be  doubted, ls'tJhe one ln wihlch the fakir  throws a ball -of twine Into the air  above him, until It disappears from  ��lg(ht The loose end of the string he  holds in Ms hand, and after the boy  assistant has climbed up the string until! he, too, ls out of sight, the fakir  himself follows, with a knife between  Oils teeth.  The spectators, surprised when both  boy and man climb out of sight, are  horrified when the boy's severed head,  arms and legs, followed by the trunk,  fall to the ground, and the man slides  down close behind. Their astonishment  is Increased when the fakir gathers the  ���severed members and restores the boy  to life.  Well, I saw this performance once,  and once I didn't see it; and the latter  experience was more wonderful than  the other. I had some London friends  visiting me, and after 'having left bhem  for a few minutes on the veranda ot  my bungalow, I saw, as I was returning, the same fakir and his assistant,  whom I had seen perform the trick,  standing about forty feet in front of  tny friends, apparently preparing to  begin a performance. As I was about  _s far behind the natives as my friends  were In front of them, and had not  been observed, I stood quietly where I  was.  The man placed a drawn knife between ihis teeth,- took the usual ball of  twine in his right hand, made a motion  as if throwing it Into the air, and  then stood perfectly quiet. My friends  on the veranda were looking Into the  upper air with astonishment on. their  faces, whioh in a minute turned to a  look of horror as their eyes came back  to the ground. In another minute thetr  countenances lighted up with pleasure,  and they applauded roundly.  They could oi-ot sa.y enough about the  wonderful performance they had seen,  and they were astonished beyond measure when I told them I had been as  near tihe fakir as they, and had seen  nothing of what bad so wonderfully  impressed them.  If that was not hypnotism, what was  Something New ia Hotels.  i To whom it may concern: We bej:  leave to call-your attention to the following novel features of the unrivaled  ���up-to.d_te society hotel, which the tin  dersijjned propose to build, if sufRcien:  'encouragement is forthcoming:  : The architecture will be a combina  ition of Queen Anne, Gothic, Moorish  and several extinct styles, the purposi  facing to secure adequate corners for con-  rvenient exclusive gossip; also, as far a?  ipossible, giving a private entrance ti  |each guest.

And in the morning Bianca  stood among the ruins and looked upon  the charred bodies, of j her pets. Had  she lost her : dearest friends she could  Bcarcely have'shown deeper grief. She  was'ln despair,; and declared that she  would never tame:another group; she  would leave the show business. And  ���when the menagerie was stocked afresh  with lions and tigers Bianca would not  go near their cages. These were lions  indeed, but not her lions, and she shoolc  Cher head and mourned for "Bowzer,"  the handsomest lioness In captivity,  and "Spitfire," and "'Juliette," and the  black-maned "Brutus." Nor could  money tempt her. And the outcome  was that this most successful woman  Ilon-tamer in the world retired into private life���gave up .'her career simply  because of her grief for these dead animals, ���  -Lost=the-eas_=  " Sometimes," said a. prominent  lawyer, who was giving some reminiscences of -his 'professional ea-vi  reer, "& case Is won or 'Jo3t for you  right in the court-room without voar  lifting your finger���or rather, your  Voice.
