EDITORIAL COMMENT.  <^!R WILFRID LAURIER ha* gonp to  ^ Virginia'Hot Springs* 10 recuperate. Can-  dians of all parties will regret tbe necessity  ft��r tlie trip and unite in sincere wishes for hit?  speedy recovery.  In the meantime the King's Government  must go on and so must the work of the Opposition. The task of the hitler is no less important than the former'* criticism, and advice is essential-'.-.to wise administration.  Since the Government received the renewal  of the confidence of the confidence of thr eies-  torate in the Fall of 1000, two matters of importance have absorbed our  political -interests ; we may say that ther�� are  only two important problems at pre��>ent confronting the statesmen of G.*uu��l,i : the trade  policy ami our position as a member of the  British Empire, And we have the remark  able spectacle, remarkable when we remember  that eur.Governm lit is in theory responsible,  that no man can say what the Government's  policy in on either of these questions. This is  certainly not a satisfactory' niate of affair.*, nnd  presumably we are to receive no enlightenment in the matter until ihe return of the  Premier which can scarcely be hoped for until  the next session of Parliament,  The Id bora 1 party's creed for the last quarter of a century has been that all that was  wanting to give an impetus to Canadian development was the abolition of import duties.  This confesnion of faith was pronounced by  three successive leaders including the present  prime minister and was enthusiastically endorsed at every convention of the party. Sir  Wilfrid Laurier repeatedly charged that the  National Policy of the Conservative party was  WMisciously framed and maintained to benefit  tin* manufacturers at the expense of the arti-  zhiih and farmers and that all attempts to ae-  eure reciprocal trade relations with the United  States, made prior to 189(5, were flagrantly  dishonest and that they were purposely made  fruitless by the Conservative Government,  lb' further staked hie political life on his ubil-  I  ity if given a mandate to negotiate a commercial treaty with the -Americans* securing to  Canadian exporters much better terms than  they had enjoyed in the American markets  since the abrogation of Lord Elgin's treaty in  1866.  Sir Wilfrid's attempt to carry out his  pledge, mude. as we believe, in perfect sincerity, took the form of the Joint High Commission. While* that body sat in conference we  were asaund frequently that progress was  beia*. made toward the desired end, bur afu*r  two sittings it adjourned indefinitely and no  good result* have ever been announced.  W'hai would have been the honorable course  tor the Government io take then ? Surely, to  inform the country through the House of Commons thai they were unsuccessful and present  an alternative policy. Two sacn remained:  oiifftfto pursue their policy of u Free Trade as  th* v have it in England V and trust that their  vie>va were right when they held that protection hurt the importing, not the exporting  country, the other to continue their predecessor.** pdiey of protection admitting that Canada could not afford Fr��se Trade while the  Uniied States maintained a * high protective  tariff. Mr. Tane declared for the latter and  has had to retire. Tne rest of the Cabinet are  dumb ou the subject.  . What, then,  does it mean ?  Doe^ Sir Wilfrid want more time to decide ?  Or ate we not entitled to know the intentions  of our responsible ruler? ?  Th�� either problem is our relations as a part  of the Empire. Sir Charles Tupper had advocated preferential trade within the Empire,  hoping that in return for free markets in her  Colonies, Britain might be induced to levy a  small import tax on foreign products from  which colonial products would be exempted.  In this as in us predictions about the development of our Northwest, Sir Charles looked a  long way ahead ; but the latter prophesy is  already b-ihg fulfilled, ��  When the Liberal Government announced  a reduction of duties on imports from Britain  with no compensating favor, it was regarded  as gracefully patriotic, but unbuaineaslike, but  as it made such a slight difference to the national -revenue- no one was inclined to  cvvih It further raised the presumption that  the Liberal party was about to free itself forever from the suspicion of indifference to Imperial ties which had caused its defeat in  189L Recently Sir Wilfrid has had an opportunity never before offered to a Canadian  statesman of taking a great and useful part in  eonstruetive Imperial stateumansbip. As  Premier of the oldest and most populous of  the great colonies he was naturally regarded  as the leading colonial  statesman,  and   was  expected to initiate the work of the conference. We have not yet been enlightened as  to the proceedings of the meetings, but from  what has found its way into print, Sir Wilfrid's only eontributions to its deliberations  was an expression of unwillingness or inability to commit Canada to any scheme of Imperial defence. There are some Canadians  who honestly oppose any participation in Imperial wars. We do not agree with tnezn, but  their position is intelligible. . a -  But our Premier has boasted soToften of his  loyally to British connection and of-his .pride  in Canada as one in the "galaxy oi nations,'*  that we are entitled to expeet from him at  least a^ent to plan fer strengthening the  ties. But what conclusion are we driyen to  by his regent conduct ? Either that his pro-,  testations of loyalty to the throne and pride  in the Empire are mere vaporings, or that he  is a poor, vacillating time-server, with neither  convictions nor courage. ."      ^'        ;;    *  The time for electing new councils is ap-  proaching and those who interest themselves  in such matters are already suggesting oan-  didates for the offices of'mayor and alderhien.  It is a mi.-fortune and a reproach to Canada  (hat the number of ihose who do interest  themselves in the selection bears such a pain-  fully small proportion to the whole body of  eitizens Our neighbors, the Americans, owe  their doubtful blessing of boss-rule to the fact  that few take part in elections and a snoall organized body can always win against a majority which acts without union or purpose.  Boss-rule is not unknown in Brit sh Columbia, and the respectable people who are indignant at it have themselves to thank.  One of the advantages claimed for democratic government is that all citizens may participate and all learn the functions of ruling.  Frequently town and city councils are regarded as training schools for parliament and  legislature. There can be no objection to this  as a contingent advantage, but it  should not forgotten that the most important function of the council is wise  administration of the affairs of the municipality. This requires two qualities in the members of the council, honesty and intelligence.  Honesty is not so frequently lacking as intel-  tigence.V The number of councilmen in Canada who have been found guilty of dishonesty  in office is small. But the number whose stupidity has been costly is rar from being small.  Men have been elected to these bodies, because  of obedience tb a boss or a committee, who  have never been known to make an intelligent remark. As aldermen such individuals  are comparatively harmless, beyond their loquacity and dullness  of  understanding, but  ':&  7)1   ���,.._U  o'l  *>*)��">����������  f> >��  ,     I "- ,   ,.''>  * "    tA       11 ii a* ' , '' ���   , O'l,      "A '   ���lf        '    "'  1  i ,     ltO      ^^'H,[ J")t  I " ll ' '  h ^tlli  !       ���     �� fr  %-:-   ."J  f I      0,  >    hi*   if   1 *  \Ui   "'<\      ' i,9  ,11,',t >'.'

Prior  has strengthen ed  the Government, while others, shake   their heads   ominously   and  say, "wait."    The speetacie of a  Premier going to the   Opposition for Cabinet  material may cause British subjects in   other  parts    of   His    Majesty   domains   to   stand  aghast, but it must not be forgotten that this  is British Columbia, and that a   hole more or  less in the constitution   is   not a matter of fa-0  tal   consequence     Perhaps   Col.

In one of the early   histories   of  Canada *the  name of Dr. Gamble is mentioned frequently.  He died on the4tb of September. 1811, and,"if  I am not greatly mistaken, was  father of Mr  Clarke Gamble.    The latter was father of Mr  A. G. Gamble, of Nelson.

The following is a boy's  essay  on .newspapers :    " Newspapers are sheets  of paper on  which stuff to read is printed.    The men look  over it to see if their names are in. it.

At fifteen he ran away from horoe, and up  to  the age of   twenty-five he scarcely   had sufficient food to keep   him   alive.    He worked alternately   as a day-laborer, a   sawyer, a cook  and a lighterman.

The carriage passed quite j  cio-u to tlie tne, and the young Mower teller  was able to throw one of hi* best specimens  iL-ht at Lord Kitchener** feel. The. General  pieked it up? with a pleasant smile of thanks,  and placed it in his button-hole.  Probably the oldest soldier in the world is  Field-Marshal Lieutenant Barou Schwartz  Meilier, who, though in the ninety-sixth year  ol bio age, is still on the active list of the  Austrian army. He has been au officer lor  seveut>-louf >earr, and a general since 1852.  The Canada Drug & Book Co,, L'td, Nelson have the largest stuck and greaieai variety  oi holiday goods ever displayed in the Kootenay j?. iu novelties, everything that can be  puiClJiised in tlie larger Cities ol the east can  be found here, and waen it comes to book.-,  nothing like tne stwca displayed by. this company can oe seen in a^y other bookstore west  of Toronto.

Several  of the amateur- in  the cast were at   least   the  -equal? of many prof^ionols  seen  in Nelson,  but it would be base flattery to attribute even  mediocre talent to two or three who   were assigned inore or less important  roles.    In this  respect the  production   was   no more blameworthy than the average performance of irav  eiling companies.    It is   not  often   the piay-  Koing public   are provrded   with   a  dramatic  feast of which it can truthfully be  said/every  dish is palatable.    Of course  it may be  said  that this being a first performance it was only  natural to expect a little halting     Quito true,  but there were several on the stage Wednesday  night who had not the slightest conception of  Mr. Robertson's  admirable stage   portraits of  scenes iu every day   life.

It has been complained time and again that  the   mining   men   of    tne   Kootenay   did not  know exactly wnat tney wanted.    This charge  can no longer be sustained.    Those interested  in the   mining  industry   have placed   themselves on record as  desiring   that*'tne duties  on pig lead and the products  thereof   imposed  by the Deniimon   Government  should   be in- ,  creased so ari to he on a parity witn  duties on  Other raw   Lu#.ierials ana  their   niauuiactuies_  whicu are the products ol  Canada/  and   thai,  "ail machinery anu  supplies   Useu   in   mines  and snjeilers  not utanuiactured iii Canada be  admiued duty   tree."     ibe   Government.can  no longer piead ignorance et  tne requirements .  oi the mining industry.

ALTER,** said   Mrs. Bertha  Turner  to her artist cousin, who was painting her portrait," why don't you marry ?"  '-Because, my dear Bertha, I cannot get  the woman I want. I will tell you a secret.  There is a young girl who occasionally looks  ont of that window facing my studio. I have  fallen in love with her. Sne does not deign  to notice me."  " If I were a   man,   with   my knowledge of  women, I   could    get   any   women   in    the  world."  ** I wish you would get this girl for me.n  Neither spoke for a while. Then Bertha  Turner said :  " I have a plan. For you, my favorite cousin, I will execute it, though I would not do  so for any one else. Give me some of your  clothes. There is a girl sitting at the window  now.    Is that she ?"  " Yes.     What are you going to do ?"  ''Never mind.    Leave that to Lie."  Ten minutes later, Mrs. Turner, dressed  from lhe waist up as a man, strolled to the  Window and looked out. She held some roses  in her hand and, taking careful aim, sent  them into the lap of the girl opposite. The  recipient started and looked out just in time  to fete the sender disappear  from the window.  The girl held the Howes over the sill preparatory to dropping them in��o tbe court i��e-  low, but befor doing so concluded to enjoy  their fragrance. Tneti she i<tid them on a  table near by, arose and disappeared.  " There's a beginning for you. To-morrow  afier the sitting We'Jisee if we can advance a  step."  The next day when Mrs. Turner arrived at  the studio her cousin said to her :  *' Your effort ha? been a failure."  .  " Whv so ?"  "1 went to the window this morning.    She  came   to  her   window at  the  same moment.  As soon as she .-aw me she turned and walked  a wav"  "That's   very good.    If  she   hadn't   done  that this morning, c*he would have done it  'his af'^rnoon. Now. having shown her Condemnation of your assurance, perhaps she wiJi  be forgiving.';  The sitting was cut short, for in   the   midst  of it the girl opposite appeared at her window  with her workbasket.  "She expects you to appear and look very  penitent. Sue must be disappointed. Give  nae your coaL There; now put your hat on  the back of my head so as to conceal my knot  of hair.    That will do."  Seizing a handglass, she sat near the window, wi^h her back turned toward the girl opposite.  " Aha, little one I" she said. " Who is hurt  this time? Sm<-.nh that wrinkled brow."  She presently burst into a laU'h.  " Look," she said to her cousin.  " 1 see nothing unusual."  "She's putting   that sleeve  in   wrong side  ���remost.    Fix your mind on your   work, my  dear.    Don't be thinking ahcut the nian op  posite."  At the next sitting, as  Mrs. Turner entered  the studio, Walter Burne paid excitedly :  " It's all up. Until to-day she has never  failed to show herself at the. window in the  rao.ning. I have );ot i^een her since you left.  I treated her verv rudelv."  The lady received this information with  equanimity and went to the window.  "Splendid!"' she  exclaimed, clasping   her  hands with a childish delight.  "What is it?"  Burne looked out and faw a flower on Uhe  window sill.  11 She   tells you," said bus cousin, " that sbe  appreciates your gift."  " How do vou know?"  "That's what the flower she had   placed on  the window all means in. flower, language.".'.  !       " You don't mean it P  j 4lYr3. Having shown her that you were  j offended at her apparent want of appreciation,  | she has hastened to tell vou that vou were mis*  j taken. Now I think vou had belter uive her  j a forgiving reply."  I Going to some pots containing plants in an  tmpovished conservatory, she looked them  ove��*.  "Oh, dear! There is nothing to indicate  forgiveness or forgive me. This foigeL-Mie-not  will have to serve Go and Uy it on the sili."  Butne was so mov< d at this Mirce^-fiil step  ir his love affair that he made no end  of blunders on the portrait, doing more barm  than good. When hiscous-iu arose lo go, sh*  locked at it and asked:  " Have you been working on the no.se this  morning?"  "Yes.    Why do you a-k?"  "Take it out     It h tie no e of the girl op-  po-ite.      I think you   had better-now arrange  for an introduction to your lady-love. Do vou  know ber name?"  "No."  Cl Weil, I will note the number of her hou.-e  as I go by and find out for you. Tbeh 1 will  pre what I can do."  Mrs Turner's investigations led' to .the in-'  fn. (nation that tbe gi.l opposite w^ the  daughter of an acquaintance of one of i��er inti- !  mate friends. An introduction was arrang-  id. aud the proxy met the la<ly of Ids love, j  Shortly after this Burne received a notice from  his cousin to appear at ber house on a stipulated evening. There he was introduced to the  girl opposite, who did not suspect but that the  m: Bting was purely accidental.  "Now fight it out yourself," whispered his  cousin as shejexcused herself for a time, "and  be brave."  Bourne was brave and won.  The Modern Romans.  Under the slanting light of the yellow buu of  October,  A "gang of Dagos" were working close by the  side of the car track.  Pausing a moment to catch a note of their liquid Italian,  | Faintly I heard a note of Rome's imperial ac-  ! cen ts.  j  Broken-down forms of Latin   words from the  | Senate and Forum,  I Now smoothed over by use to the musical lia.  \ gua Romana.  j Then came the  thought, Why,  the��e are the  l heirs of the conquering Romans ;  j These are the sons of the men who founded the  j Empire of Caesar ;  | Theee are they who**e fathers carried the con-  1 quering eagles  | Over ail Gaul  aud across  the sea to Ultima  Thule.  The race type persists unchanged in their eyes  and profiles and figures���  Muscular, shon, and thiek-m with prominent  noses, recalling  "Romanos rerum domino^, gentemque toga*  turn."

" Bossmg the job," stood a Celt, the race enslaved by the legions,  Sold in ihe market of Rome, to meet the ex-  pet n-es of Caesar.  And a* I loitered,   the Celt cried, " Tind to  your worruk, ye Dagos-  Full up yer shovel, Paythro, ye haythen, PII  dork yees a quarther."  This he said to the  ono  who   resembled  tho  great Imperii;or ;  Meekly the dignified Roman kept on patiently  digging  Such are the changes and  chances the centuries bring to the nations.
