Men      Have  Thought About It.  WTTHIN   A   FEW    YEARS  We     Will     Be     Either  or   Frozen to  Death.  Frizzled  Pearson's Weekly.  Professor Ludwig Marienburg, of  the University of Chicago, declares  that the end of the world is near  at hand. He has discovered, so he  avers,, that our little old planet  has '"jumped its orbit," so to.speak,  and is wobbling around in space  like an intoxicated man. This  irregularity, the professor explains,  ���will shortly cause our summers to  become hottej.' and hotter, and our  winters to be colder and colder.  Within fifteen or twenty years at  the outside, according to his figures,  the entire human race will be alternately either frizzled or frozen to  death.  Even this, however, would be better than being comet-stricken after  the fashion so graphically portrayed recently by Mr. H. G. Wells.  Practically all scientists are agreed  that what _he describes ia likely to.  happen sooner or later.  Professor Dewar goes even further. He says that'not only may  such a cataatrope occur at any  time in the more or less near future  but that it "has certainly happened, and almost certainly more  than once, in the more or less near  past."  The converso of this cataclysm  ���of fire is a cataclysm of ice. Tnis  we know, for an absolute fact, to  have occurred before; and wo also  .know that it is practically certain  ito recur, and that too, speaking  [geologically, at no very fur distant  ���date.  The reason is that tho ��� ccumulu-  tion of ico round tho South and  North Poles, the "ico caps," geologist call them, aro over getting  thicker and thickor. Moro- ico is  formed by freezing during Iho long  arctio and antarctic winters than is  lost through molting in tlio ahoit  Bum more. Monnwhilo tho wiUor to  form thin ice���billions on billions  of tons of it, mind���iH being taken  up hy tho turn from tlio moro tern-  oralo zonoa of tho globo. Someday  or othor this proocea is bound to  nffoot tho stability of tho earth. It  will booamo "top-heavy," anil, uh iv  rosult, it will, as it woro, cant upon ita axis.  Tho result will bo that tho proa-  ont situation will bo rovorard.  Thnt ia to any, tho poloa will bu  Bomowhoro ut opposite aidca ol  whivt iB now tho equator, and the  now equator will intersect what  aro now tho polos. Tho roault  would bo that a world-wido cnrlh-  quako would lovol all cities and  towna, undovon tho hills and moun-  tninp, and tho aun would awwip  ovor���tho ruins.  Havo you cvor noticed how, if a  fruit tart ia loft to cool wiihout  being out, and without any opening being loft in tho center to permit of tho inlomnl heat OFcnpinjr,  tho orual will, aa it boeoinoa cold,  nag down, and permit tho mill hot  juioo to woll up ovor a portion nf  ita Hiirfaco. Now, that in exactly  what Mr. Grant Allen nfliinicd will  happen ono day to tlio thinned, por  tion of tho onrth'ti onuil.  He also affirmed the   probability  that one area, at all event;--, of such _  thin crest, is situated in the Thames j  Valley,   near   Cookham ; and,   arguing from these premises, he drew  a   graphic description    of   the   destruction-wrought by   a lava flood,  whic.h   welled   up   near  there, and  rollei thence downward to the sea.  The earth thereabouts, according to  Mr. Allen, opened  suddenly, without an instant's warning, in   a   gigantic crack or fissure, many miles  long,   whence  millions   of tons of  white-hot   slag   gushed   out,   and  filled up the entire valley to a certain level   in and   out   among-the  hills, exactly as water might do*.  . When it is over in twenty-four  hours, London���as well' as scores of  riverside towns���was no more,  its  place being taken   by   the   rapidly  congealing lava,  afterwards to : be  known as the Great Glass Desert.

The London Morning Post says:  Despite the many imperative reasons which* continue to direct public attention.in this 'country to the  South African colonies it is'gratifying, to: note: the. ever-increasing interest! which is bein^ taken in the.  Dominion of Canada.. Canadians  have in the past not.without reason  complained of the neglect of the  Mother Country,'but the grounds  of that complaint ..are rapidly being removed. APor. this Canadians  have themselves very largely to  thank, as it must be confessed?-that  they were themselves'- somewhat to  blame for the previous neglect.  It was only under the\ pressure of  an ever-growing . invasion from  across the frontier that the eastern  province.-* awoke to the full realization of the immense possibilities  of the vast; areaB which Ca,nada  possessek-;:ini-.the ;Norih and Northwestern/territories,' and in proportion as Canadians themselves have  realized I heir splendid heritage the  Mother Country has become alive  to the ; claims of her great North  American colony.

Tlio  merits of the rival  schemes  which  are being urged on the attention of  J the Dominion Government will, no  doubt,  be   considered   mainly   in  view of the prospects of commercial  success which they present.    That  is an aspect of the question- which  cannot  and  ought not to be overlooked.    But   there are  other  aspects which are, we do  not  doubt,  as fully- recognized  in  Canada  as  in this country.    Canadians  have  not been slow to.grasp the political  dangers   which  would  follow  the  commercial   subservience   of    the  Dominion to its powerful  southern  neighbor,  and  consequently it   is  not surprising to find that the promoters of the  Trans-Canada  Railway have put in the forefront of  their claim the two considerations  that the line which it ia  proposed  to build from the St. Lawerence to  the Pacific would be absolutely independent of   the  "United   States  railway system, both  along its  entire route and at its termini on tha  two oceans,    and    would   in   the  second place, by its distance from  the international  frontier,  furnish  a strategic line of communication  between Great Britain  and the far  east which might,,in certain eventualities, be of immense  value to the  Empire.    These- considerations are  in themselves!; sufficient to account  for.the interest "which:the proposed  Trans-Canada Railway has aroused  in "the country^ an interest- which  involves no   necessary  hostility to  any other schemes  which may   be  submitted to the consideration of  the Dominion Government, except  in so far as.their.acceptance. would  involve the  postponement.- of the  construction of a line of  railway  which presents so many advantageous   features   from   .'an' Inaperial  point of view. .-.���;  Men  no  Longer   Believe  Party Platforms. -  in  SO   MR.

A few more  quotations from the same paper,  might emphasize this contention.  For instance, on September 27,  1399, 'the Tribune contained the  following editorial paragraph:  r  : "In! the next general. elections,  both Provincial and Dominion, .the.,  Independent party will have to be  .reckoned with.

Should' be an easy  mark  In view of subsequent events;  this following paragraph, which  appeared in the Tribune, March 6,  1900, should provoke a smile:  "The Tribune bus not favpj-ed  party, lines in provincial politics,  for Jhe reason.that national political questions seldom have more to  db'with the management of tbe  business affairs of a province than  they have-with the business affairs  of a: municipality.

The investigation charges of corruption made against men holding  public.ofljces is occupying the attention of the Canadian public to a remarkable extent at the present time.  Nelepn, not to be behind the times,  has had a sample during,the past  week of this popular form of entertainment, in the trial of Mr. Burtt  Morgan, of RosBland on the charge  of..)ibelling Harry Daniels, police  commissioner of that city.     The  evidence_showed a shocking condition of public affairs in Rossland.  It clearly appeared that an arrangement existed between  some of the  prpminent  municipal officials and  ah organization of. gamblers to permit gambling to be carried on without hindrance for certain pecuniary  considerations. A The   prosecution  urged that this arrangement was  necessitated by the depleted condition of the ���=city's-exchequer;^ The  defence endeavored  to   show that  part of the proceeds of this arrangement went into the pockets of certain dl the officials, and that in any  event Daniels profited by it indirectly in the custom it brought him  as a painter and decorator in fixing  up gambling rooms.   His Lordship,  Mr. Justice Marton,  in   charging  tbe  jury paid a high, tribute to the  courage shown by  tbe. accused  in  boldly and  openly  attacking  the  corruption arid specifically charging  complicity  on Daniels'  part.  The jury acquitted the accused.  It wao noticeable that the laugh  that invariably followed any direct  evidence of corrupt dealings had  little of merriment in it. Tbe impression was given to a bystander  that tbo public was in atrongsympathy with Mr. Morgan. This is  ocarcoly surprising. When corruption and rumors of corruption in  public lifo become so prevalent as  they are at present in this country,  the temper of the people ie apt to  get somewhat short. Tho unnni-  moue agreement of the jury in acquitting Mr. Morgan wae a reflection  of this feeling, and if ie beginning  to bo felt that ofthe guilt of "bood-  ling''can bo brought brmo to any  publio Borvarit the public will boo to  it that sufficient examplo will bo  made of tho culprit.

Even more extraordinary is that condition of mind  which   not  only tolerates these men after they have succeeded in their plans and purposes, but in a  way makes leaders and heroes of them.     Tbe  .effect is  always bad.    Publio character an d  private honor both- suffer.     Good people become pessimistic and bad ambitions grow more  bold.

The two  things  cannot be disassociated.     They must  be  jugdged  by the  iam��  standards and there is never  a com-  promise between good and evil.  THE PROVINCIAL PRESS. \  Fort Steele Prospector.  The Laurier government has  not increased  its popularity in the Kootenays by giving the  marble heart and frozen hand to the lead delegates.  EDITORIAL! COMMENT:  The evidence given before the Hou^ committee thia. week was to tho effect  that .the. patents for blocks ^59Z and 4,594 were delivered ���  to Henry Campbell Oswald, secretary of.the.  C. P. R. company, and   remained in hia pos--  Bession one night.  This is an important point  and will no doubt figure in whatever faction  the railway  company: may take, against ; the-  British Columbia government.    Itrdao contradicts the contention of Mr. Wells that the pa-  * tents for those two blocks had never been delivered to the company. . The evidence of Sir-  Thomas Shaughnessy has been all on the line  that the government did not act in good faith  with the company, and  secured   the return of  the patents in question and subsequently canceled the land grjnts purely on tbe grounds of  political expediency.    No matter how  much  one  may question   the  wisdom   of   making-  those grantB to the C. P. R. in the first place,  there will be an inclination to believe that the  members of the government in repudiating the  agreement, were not bo much animated  by  a-  desire to guard the interests of the province, as  for their own personal aggrandizement.  The general impression seems to be that the  government will pass.in its checks next week.  It does not seem probable that with a Cabinet  composed of men who are not orr speaking  terms with each other, and a doubtful i major-  of one, Premier.Prior will attempt to carry.on  the business of the province... .We do'not take  much stock in the suggestion that there is  likely to be, a combination with the opposition. The people aro not in humor to countenance a coalition of this character, and no  doubt Premier Prior realizes this fact.  After the evidence. given  in the court this  week, there may be some who will believe tbat  the crusade of the Rwaland Miner against corrupt politicians is only a deep.laid plot to turn  , an. honest penny by keeping quiet.  '. Rev. Burtt Morgan has ..rendered, a great  service to the causrof moral reform by his exposure of official corruption.

At a number of places throughout the  province dark horses are being groomed for  the election lhat is expected to occur in the  not distant future. They seem to think that  the days of the Prior government are numbered, and it certainly looks that way.  Morrissev Despatch.

Perhaps the greatest of all social mistakes is to be continually talking about  oneself. There is no word in all the  vocabulary of conversation so tedious to  others as that personal pronoun "L"  Though one of the smallest words in  uBe, there is none that takes up more  room in the everyday world. "I" ia a  bore. It is better not to mention his  naxno oftenor than can be avoided. Another social folly is "gush." There is  an insincere ring about it True, there  are people who gush from sheer good  nature in wishing to give pleasure, yet  they should remember that even amiable  exaggeration ia like a coarse sugar plum,  agreeable at first, but leaving a doubtful taste in the mouth afterward. ���  On the other hand, there is a certain  class of people in society who are equally foolish in going to the other extreme.  Ehey feign indifference about everybody  and everything, seldom expressing either  interest or admiration. They think it  "bad form" to show any pleasure in  life, and a sign of superiority to be incapable of enthusiasm. A social folly  is to imagine that people are always  looking at or thinking of you. Such  ideas are often the offsprings of conceit.  As a matter of. fact, the people very  often look at you without seeing or  thinking of you. They have other things  to think of. If we could only convince  ourselves that we are not always .the  pivot of our friends' and acquaintances'  thoughts, there would be fewer hurt  feelings and imaginary grievances.���-  Spokane Spckesman-Roview.  Visitor* From BpMO.  Whatever be their origin, it would,  seem that these solid bodies (meteorites)  are hurtling through space at velocities  which may be anything between 10 and  40 miles a second. If they come near  enough to this earth to be attracted by  it, their course is changed, and presently they enter our atmosphere. The result is a sudden check to their speed,  owing to the intense resistance and friction engendered by contact with the air  particles.  What happens may be likened to the  sudden application of the wooden brake  block to the rapidly moving wheel of  an express train. Heat is generated in  exchange for motion, and the trail of  sparks from the chocked wheel is represented in the checked meteorite by a  luminous trail. We commonly call it a  shooting star, and if its mass be small  it is possibly altogether dissipated "in  heat and gas, or it may ultimately  find its way to our earth as dust. Such  "meteoric dust" has been found on the  eternal snow of mountains, where dust  of the ordinary typo would be impossible. If, on the other hand, the mass of  matter be large, its surface only will  be affected by the sudden heat generated, and it may fall to the ground entire or possibly explode and be scattered  in fragments over a wide area.���Chambers' Journal.  . j /  ''V Battleship and Crolier.  The difference between a battleship  andau armored cruiser is technical, and  exports have stnmbled over the matter.  A battleship is supposed to havo heavier  guns and armor and to be botter fitted  to withstand hard knocks from an opposing force. But this does uot always  hold good, as may be seen in tho case of  the Maine as compared with the Brooklyn. The Maine was a battleship, but  sho was not so large nor so heavily armored as tho armored cruiser Brooklyn.  On ono point there seoma to bo no dis  pute, and that is tho fact that the  cruisers are fastor than tho battloships,  and it is conceded also that in most instances tho battloships are botter protected.

SnopliltLng.  Nothing has dene so much to encourage stealing (shoplifting) as the modern  department stores and their methods.  The problem presented is a difficult one  with whic& to deal, but while merchants have a right to display their  goods the public also has rights and  duties in the matter. If a banker dumps  his cash on tables oulsido his desk railings and lets people hs__;dle it at wilL  he would not get much sympathy when  he complained that it had been stolen,  and if he continued the practice because  these losses were more than offset by  the increased profits which the display  resulted in, as is the case with the department stores, there would be much  justice in the claim that ho had no right  to make profits by any method which  tended to debauch the public. In short,  it may fairly be maintained that it is a  prime duty of every citizen to exercise  reasonable diligence in safeguarding his  own property, and that if he neglects  this he becomes in a measure a menace  to society.���International Magazine.  Tbe Dome of St. Faal'a.  We do not believe there ir any truth  in the alarming rumor that there is  some uneasiness in expert quarters in  regard to the stability of the dome of  St. Paul's, We imagine that the only  substratum of fact is this: It is known  that a huge iron chain is imbedded in  the stonework of the drum of the dome.  An eminent architect some time since  amused himself by describing the consequences which might ensue if the water were to reach this chain. There is  no reason to suppose that such a thing  has occurred or is likely to occur, and  the newly appointed surveyors, Messrs.  Somers Clarke and J. T. Middlethwaite,  are fully alive to the desirability of  finding and examining the chain. The  llrst difficulty appears to be that its exact locality is somewhat uncertain. The  .second will be to get at it effectively  when it is discovered.���London Saturday Review.  Family Economy.  .

While every  one of their performances possessed  more or less merit, they have only had  two really good houses during tht  week. The best performance was that  of Forget-Me-Not, the piece in which  Rose Coughlan starred last year. Mr.  Williams is away ahead of the average  travelling comedian, and iu the company are several who could take a  place with the best companies. The  one great trouble ia that so many pieces  given have been t^en here so often.  The company will conclude its engagement to-night iu a play called Au Englishman.  Griffith, the hypnotist, will be seen  at the Opera, House next Thursday  evening. During the afternoon he  will give a 4-borss blindfolded drive  throughout the city.  John McLaren, who died at Kamloops, Wednesday night, from the effects of a fall from a horse, was well-  known throughout Canada on account  of the many large lumber enterprises  with which he was connected. Deceased was a brother-in-law of His  Honor Judge Foriu.  Is it creditable to the intelligence of  Nelson  audiences  to   have   to state  that the three last companies playing  at the��Opera House have been forced  to reprove some one in the gallery for  misbehavior?     It is  only just to say,  however, theofl'enders aie not usually Nelson people, but visitors from the  outside who are remaining over a day  or two.   Another sourc-e of annoyance  is the habit some people have got into  of coming late for the performance.  It invariably happens that the   late  arrival wears boots that can  be heard  all over the house.   The other evening  in Forget-Me-Not, tlie  first act  was  completely,^ lost on account of the disturbance created by late.arrivals.  MINING NOTES.  (Slocan Drill.)

Monday at Kaslo the Nelson lacrosse  team will play Rossland and there is  little doubt but that the local team will  have an easy victory. Nelson has not  been able tb practice much as yet owing  to bad weather and so are not in as good  shape as it is anticipated th ey will be  later on, It is reported that Rossland  has imported men which they think  will be ol great worry to Nelson. Tbe  sporting editor of this paper is of the  opinion that they had better import a  whole club.  Victoria will play Vancouver at Victoria on Monday.  BASEBALL,.  In the first game of the season last  Sunday Nelson was defeated by North-  port, which was contrary to expectations. Nelson played a goo d game  for the amount of practice they have  had and we feel confident they will win  out when they play Rossland in that  city.
