A  mectiiigof the manufacturers interested  in the National Policy was called by  Sir John, in the campaign of 1S82, and  was held in the " Red Parlor" of tbe  Queen's Hotel, Toronto. Sir John had  reason to think there was a certain  lukewarmness among the manufacturers whose business his National Policy  bad built up. In a short address be  told,them a parable of a herd of swine  that were eating acorns under an oak  tree and never looked up to inquire  what power it was that was shaking  the acorns down. Thenceforth, it .is  said, the manufacturers became more  interested in the support of the Conservative party.  . Thellon. Mr. Chapleau was Se .retary  of State, and by virtue of that ollice was  custodian of the great sea of realm. On  a certain New Year's Day, he presented  himself at the Governor-General's levee  clad iii a superb seal-skin coat falling  below hisknees. Sir John, taking him  forward to His Excelleny, saying:���  " My Lord, this is the Great Seal."  On another occasion, it befell him to  present to His Excellency the Chief  Justice of the Supreme Court, -who was  clad in the official scarlet and ermine,  and was noted no less for the abnormal  ruddiness of his complexion than for  the profundity of his legal lore, The  Premier's was brief but suggestive.  " My Lord, permit mo .to present my  well-read friend the Chief Justice."  At bis own reception, on a New  Year's day, a quartet of French priests  called upon him, and naturally enough  one of them politely inquired whether  the Premier bad yet had "la grippe."  Sir John, with his inimitable twinkle,  replied:���" No,my good Father, I have  not yet had it, and cannot, therefore,  pass it on to you, but I'll tell you what  I will do for you, I will give you the  Orange grip if you would like to have  It." It is only neeessery to remember that at that moment Canada was  in a high fever of excitement between  the Jesuits on one sideand the Orangemen on the other to catch the full flavor  of:this happy reply.  Sir John Macdonald's face wasa good  subject for the caricaturist, and Ben-  Rough'could, put more humor into the  single feature of his nose in a sketch in  Grip than could be depicted in the  whole body of any other Canadian politician of the present or past. For fifteen years not a single issue of Grip can  be recalled without a sketch of the enlivening face which ail eyes sought, as  they turned to the cartoons. And how  delightful was the wink -which the cartoonist would give to the old man!  With one catch-word the reader could  almost describe the seheiue that was  being' portjayed by that " inimitable  twinkle" alone. To the political reader  the most pathetic thing connected with  Sir John's death was the-absence of the  chieftain's familiar features from the  Grip.  Speaking of Sir John's nose a member of Parliament told this story: "The  last time I happened to he in thehar-  bershopof the Parliament buildings,  Sir John was in the chair. The artist  was shaving bis upper lip as I entered,  and had hold of the Premier's nose. 1  said.'I suppose, Sir John, that he is  the only man in Canada who cun tn'se  you by the nose with impunityV The  barber was disturbed hy the smile ofthe  statesman, as he replied:' Yes, and lie  has his hands full.' "  ews of tlie  lues  The Poplar Creek min ing excitement;  is growing. There are already 1000  men on the ground and a large number mere are flocking in every day.  The feeling that the new district is going to rival Cripple Creek and other  great mining camps is fast gaining  ground. Every boat going up to Lardo  is loaded w ith supplies for Poplar Creek  and the "wharves are crowded with  wagons containing supplies. Up at  Kaslo it is said that the rush of business  ^|TrMircM=by"the deinands fromHhe new=  Ileitis is unprecedented in the history  of the town. The hotels have been  crowded with mining men, and much  interest is taken in the specimens at  the Hume from Poplar Creek. Reports  frcm other mining districts go to show  that the staple industry of the province-  is everything that could be desired.  be placed in commission as soon as the  government inspector passes upon it.  Jn the ccui. e of a i\cek or two the  four furnaces at the Granby smelter  will be blown ou+ for the purpose of  connecting up the two new furi'iiees.  This will require perhaps ten clays,  when all three will be operated. In tbe  mean time ore shipments from the  company's mines will necessarily be  discontinued, but Supt. Williams states  that the force will not be reduced, as he  has plenty of work^or~t5eTnerrEr7So7  and has storage room in the mines for  a very large amount of ore. When  shipments are resumed, after the shut  down at the smelter, tbey will beat the  rate of moie than 2,000 tons daily.  It is reported that the silver-lead producers of Sandon have agreed to pool  the output of the mines. By doing  this they present a united front in disposing of their ores more advantageously, whereas by shipping the old  way���selling individually���they were  compelled to accept the terms and rates  ofIVred by tho smelters. To further  facilitate the disposal of their ores, they  named a committee empowered to dispose of the ores in such a man tier as  they see fitand to the smelters, whether  in Canada or the United States offering the most lucrative rates.

The time  has passed when men of the stamp of Prior and Martin andMolmiesand Houston shall represent.tbe  < V '  o -"'���'"  people in the Provincial Legislature. There must be no mincing of matters in this important crisis  through which British Columbia is now passing, The province has declared for party lines, and  urgently demands a more responsible and capable representation in the administration of its affairs.  O        .'_������' '-..:      - -       o-'-   {."������' ".  ���  There are in both the Conservative and the Liberal :parly men available to meet the ideals and ideas  ofthe electors of eve", constituency, We are not bothering about the Liberals, particularly, because  they-cannot hope to' _arrythe country next October.;; We are, however, greatly concerned as to the  character of every Jonservative that is to be nominated on or after next August 15���the day set for  nominations by the executive of the Provincial Conservative Association.  In practically every riding,  excepting Nelson ,4lbe Conservative party may be safely relied upon  to nominnte  men vvho are able and willing to do their whole duty to the people,  In Nelson, however,  there is afar from satisfactory, not to say healthy, state   of affairs.    John  Houston���a questionable  Conservative at best, albeit he has been accepted, even honored, in the councils ofthe party���is mak-  ing an unseemly and mendacious blufffor the Conservative nomination.    Houston's  political record  stinks in the nostrils cf every good Conservative and every iran, irrespecth-e of party, who  has the  cause of geed governmental heart.. His paTty fealty ard his general political principles are open to  serious question.    He is lenow.n far and wide as a "practical" politician���a   type  that  has  beeu  the  curse and damnation of British Columbia   for  the last fifteen  years.    He  has used and abused his  friends solely for his personal advancement in politics.    He has succeeded in  shocking" the ' political  morality of not only Kelson but the entire province."  His adherence to  the Prior-Dunsmuir regime  was simply monstrous.    His connection with   the  C. P. R.   has scandalized  the  distiict.    He has  never, to cur Icr.cwUdge, displayed any principle that slocdjfor the genuine welfare ofthe masses or for  constructive stale?u:ar.ship:    Fer thesske of v-q'es.he has psr.deied to the   passions of the illiterate  and lo the inkmpeiate notions of the unthinking.'   He lcr.g ago outlived his political usefulness, and  the Kootenays outgrew long ago any desire lo act with him or for him in all matters.of  a public  na.  t     tnre. _ Nelson has passed its Houstonesque stage.iV.jctubHqjistcn  was. a  very  considerable Aoad in  Nelson's political puddle before it justly earned the title of Queen City of the Kootenays.    At a period when Nelson was  a scattered hamlet  like  Kuskoi.cck and Cascade City are to-day, Houston  might have been seme pumpkins politically.    Now, however, his environment  has  completely out-  - grown him, ai:d in doing so is heartily sick of him in any political role that his . chameleon-like  nature may place him.  Houston may yet' get the Conservative nomination in Nelson because of his bluffing and hoodwinking propensities ; but the party should see to it that he is riot so houcied and that it is not so  disgraced. Tlio Miner is giving a conscientious support to the Conservative party and its leader,'  Hon. Richard McBride. It will continue to do so just as long as both are worthy of public confidence ; but it strongly protests against the nenriuatien or election of any man of Houston's stamp,  ^attd^will=coivthnieMn--that=couTs^  We could, in this-connection, give at this writing dozens of additional reasons why the Conservatives and the country do not need Houston's assistance in politics and statesmanship. .We could refer to the parade that Houston has made of Dunsmuir's support through the editorial columns ofthe  Colonist. We could show how Houston's attitude at the last session of the Legislature, when he  might have donejxistice to the local smelting industry and scores of East Kootenay coal prospectors  by forcing ex-rremier Prior to open the East Kcolei:ay reserves in a statesmanlike manner, did the  very opposite. We feel, however, that it is uimecessao' to go to such lengths now, because we cannot imagine lhat Nelson Conservatives will be so indiscreet and so hopelessly lost to the welfare of  Ibe party ar.d the country as to rc-crgnize Houston's political ambitions when the day of nomination  5    arrives.  X oplar    V^reek   ^Stampede  Trout I,:il(_ Toi>lc.  Ed. Morgan came up on Tuesday's  bout bringing with him specimens of  the gold discovery on the Lucky Jack  claim on Poplar creels'. The rock simply beggars description. That Messrs.  Morgan, Hamilton <fc O'Connor have  staked another Independence mine,  not one who haa seen the sold specimens that are now on exhibition in  Trout Lake and Ferguson doubts for  one moment. There are several specimens from the size of the list down to  about the size of a walnut that are almost solid gold. The gold is not in it  in specks but is sticking out of the  quartz in nuggets from the size of a pea  up to that of a Lima bean.  The specimens on exhibition have  created the wildest excitement and before the month of August has weil begun there will he a couple of thousand  people in and^ around Poplar creek.  Chas. Copp who was on the ground  when the new strike was unearthed  says that never before in Canada has  he seen gold quartz any vyay nearly as  rich as that on Lucky Jack.  One boulder of quartz which has fallen away from the vein is so heavy  with the gold it contains that an ordinary man cannot lift it. The lead where  these phenomenal values were obtained  cuts into the bottom of a blufT and from  it has fallen away pieces of quartz and  formed a small slide and in this small  slide is believed to be a fortune for1 almost; every piece ^f quartz on it contains free gold.  .'Before.'coming up the owners of the  claim panned a double handful of dirt  alongside the vein after extruding all  gold visible by th is process they roasted  the residue and were astonished to sec  several little beads of gold form on the  bottom of the pan.  Some of the samples brought up have  the gold associated with a fine-grained  bluish mineral of an opaline cast.whlch  i.s believed to be of tellurium., With a  glass and in some pieces of quartz, with  the naked eve, minute particles pf cold  can be seen all through the stuff.  The immense value of the new find  has necessitated tbe placing of an armed  guard over the exposed part ofthe vein  where the new discovery was made and  now two shifts of a couple of men each  keep prowlers and specimen hunters  within bounds.  The place where theBtrike was made  is about 300 feet from the railway and _  the vein bearing the heavy gold .value*  crosses the Lardo river. The river bottom has been staked and several more  claims up the opposite mountain.  Jt must not be supposed tbat the  Lucky Jnck is the only property getting rich gold values. There are several  claims lying between the Lucky Jack  and Gold Park that have remarkable  showings of free gold. But the- men  owning these properties, among whom  are Henry Magnuson and Frank Carl-  son, are very cautious about exposing  their veins for tbe reason that the moment a showing of any value" is obtained they have to mount guard over  it. This is not because men down there  are more dishonest than anywhere else,  but the erowd is . thickening and the  specimen hunters are as thick as bees  and it would take but very few visits  of these men to account for many dollars worth of gold. Harry Sharon said  be came onto one man who was digging into his vein with his Angers and  a prospect pick and while he was looking on the man drew out several nuggets of gold, this was on Magnuson's  claini. The parts of vein prospected  as soon as gold is found are immediate-  ly covered up.  L  F  ocal and  Jt rovincial  HOUSTOND1SCARDED.  Under the above caption'last week reference was made to the fact that a largely attended meeting  of Conservatives eppeseed to John Houston had been held in their committee rooms, and that it had  been determined by unanimous resolution to oppose the selection of Mr.   Houston as the candidate  of the Conservative party in this censtituene}--, and further pledging themselves to oppose his election  ^ if he is a candidate.    Since that time, lists emphasizing the spirit of the resolution have been  circulated and signed by a very large number ci Conservatives.    Many more expressed  sympathy with  'o  the sentiment of tbe resolution, but for ohviou.s reasons were not asked to sign a list. Eight of these  are being circulated by as many Conservatives and each one of them is numerously signed. Further  action will be taken in a feu-'days, but in the meantime it might be said that the lists signed indicate Q  hostility towards J Jr. Houston by Conservatives in every walk iii life. There is a wonderful unanimity of feeling that he is-dead lo the political world, and cannot possibly save his deposit if he runs.  If Mr. Houston and his'friends are not ahead}" convinced of this fact tbey certainly will be on the  evening of October 31st. One'of his strongest supporters now makes 1:0 secret of his belief that his  champion's cause is irretrievably lost.  r^y^&sdr>4��s��h&i&yd3.  The independent labor party of Nelson, has deci (led to place a candidate in  the field. Thore is sonic question as to  what effect this move will have in the  forthcoming contest. It seems now as  if tbe contest will he between four candidates.

EDITORIAL COMMENT.  Within a few days the two parties  before the people of British Columbia  will have selected their candidates. A.��  a matter of fact, in about half tlie constituencies Liberal candidates have already been put forward.   It must be  confessed that  the Liberals L tve apparently grasped the significance of the  situation and for the greater part have  placed strong men in the field. It now  remains-with tbe Conservatives to go  and do likewise.   If ever men counted  for any thing in a political contest it  should  be   in the forthcoming campaign.   In giving particular attention  to this phase of the situation, Conservatives will be   only  preserving   the  test traditions  of  their  party.   The  late lamented Eight Hon. Sir John A.  Macadonald, strong part_ man though  he "was, always held to the ��� Contention  .that the principles of the party were  after all puly a secondary consideration, the primary thought shouId be to  have men���true men���who could be  depended upon to maintain their credit  -with their constituents at all times and  carry out the principles of their party.  Principles without men,  like    faith  ���without works,  are dead.   Therefore,  Jt is essential that Conservatives should  exercise great care in the selection of  their   candidates.     With   good men  they need have no fear.: for'the principles.   This hrings us to the consideration of the question, what are  the  qualifications of ai^ acceptable legislator? Thefirst qualification, to our mind,  Is integrity, a man-,who is abovebeing  seduced from the path  of honor by ~a  bribe, a man Svho is ever ready to"sink  self-aggrandizement in the "weal of the  .whole country.   He must be a man of  fine feelings, keen honor and self-respect, aud consistent in all his actions  He should at all times exercise self-restraint and avoid excesses of every description.   The man who is intemperate in his habits cannot be a desirable  member of a. Legislature.   A man may  -foe clever inHniany-respeetsyet-lackiug,  in the essential qualifications.   For instance, it would be fatuousness to contend that because a man is agile and  can climb a telegraph pole, or -walk a  slack wire, that he would be a shining  in Uie ^Legislature.   Such fcuts only  proclaim that man an athlete ; they do  not lead to the conclusion that he fulfills the popular idea of an acceptable  legislator.   In niahjn �� selections, and  remember these words are addressed to  Conservatives particularly, great care  should be taken that the mantle fall on  the shoulders of men who -will on all  occasions behuve themselves so as to  reflect tbe highest degree of credit and  honor on their constituents.    For the  representative Li, after all, the type by  which the public will judge his eon-  etitcnts, and the representative in  order to fulfil the aspirations of the peo-  pie, should be everything   they   ar��  themselves in their deuliuga with theii  neighbors.   Business capacity  is also  an important qualification.   The man  who  can manage his  own   business  isnceessfully ean  be safely  entrusted  with the management of the busiues.  of the province ; the man who cannui  is not a safe man to send to the Legislature, and should not be selected.   Oi  course, intelligence must be taken int��  consideration, but it can be "truthfull;  said that the men in 'whom the fore  going qualities are combined is a per  fen   of at   least average intelligence  Again, we repeat, Conservatives eai.  not exercise too much oatilioii in niaU  ing their nominations.   Tlie people u  British Columbia are more concerns  in having the Ship of State manned b��  ftitbful, trustworthy seamen, than in  ijje Icroporary success of either party  The most incomprehensible thing  about the election of the new pope was  that the whole campaign was eon-  ducted without the assistance of Fred  Starkey, although it is understood that  the gentleman referred to was ready, if  called upon, to lend bis good ollices.  not a groat deal rougher on the country which pays its professional soldiers  so miserably at to nsk such a, regulation neuessary ? Is there any other  branch of the public service in which a  young man wi I h the education and professional training of an officer does not  receive enough to marry on even after  six years service to the country, asks  the 0ttuwaCiti7.cn ?  In a three-cornered light Mr. Lennie  will receive more than enough votes to  elect him. Jn a contest with Mr. Taylor he would win with a large majority.  Organized labor seems to be no longer  the object of John Houston's apeciul  protection. Tnree years ago the labor-  ingman was one of tbe lord's chosen.  To-day, according to Mr. Houston he  is a "doughface."  A correspondent is anxious to know  what The Economist thinks of Mr.  Deane's cleaa-up from the Ottawa government. Thi3 paper believes that Mr.  Deane should receive the congratulations of newspaper men everywhere.  It is not often a British Columbia newspaper manager strikes such a windfall.  The Vancouver World remarks:  " From the cradle to tbe grave there is  no getting away from the union label.  New York dispatches state that union  workers are asked not to buy baby carriages without the uniou label on them  while coffins must also have the little  slip of blue. In other words you can  not get to heaven without a card."  India has opened up some splendid  mica mines lately, the mica being of  exceedingly fine quality. The one  most importaut feature of some.,of  these mica deposits is in the flnding'of  immense mica crystals. In the Nel-  loie district, sheets of muscovite have  been found measuring ten feet across  the basal planes. These mica sheets  are by far the largest ever discovered.  The,value of such sheets is large.for  industrial purposes, and it is commonly understood that the larger tlie sheet  the greater the value, this of course,  applying to fine grades. Muscovite is  the main mica of commerce. There  are yellow, pink and green varieties.  With the announcement that C. E.  Eaceis willing to become the Conservative candidate for Rossland, the people should lake heart. What more can  be asked for, or what greater blessing  could be conferred on the country by  Uu^all-wise'Providen"ce:-?il=^iii======i=^===-'  Though Sir Wilfrid Laurier should  compel the people of Canada to build  several other transcoritineutal railways  and give them away, the grain from  tlie west will still be moved eastward  by water.  Mr. J. Howard Hunter, registrar of  loan corporations, has refused registration in Ontario to the Loan and Savings company, limited, Montreal, owing to its alleged unsatisfactory financial statement. Under the circumstances it is unlawful for the company  to do business in the province of Ontario.  Business in Nelson is satisfactory in  all lines, und the long-hoped for revival  has reached us at lost. All tbat is  wanted now to [ill our cup or happiness  to overflowing is a sound government.  Ileal estate agents report a greater  demand for vacant houses than at any  time during the past three years. The  arrivals during the past week afford the  best evidence of the'return of good  times.  Here l.sa sample of the items that are  being circulated in the Liberal papers  of the province. It i.s taken from the  Boundary Creek Times:  " John Houston, president of the  Provincial Conservative association,  pays in the Nelson Tribune: 'No man  in the province has anything coming  to hi in from the Conservative party,  least of all Kiehard McBride. Premier  McBride and his colleagues have the  offices, but in order to retain them they  must first prove that they are worthy  of the high positions they have  gained.'"  Tbe Liberal newspapers are to be congratulated in having such an able writer as John Houston supplying them  with- campaign material. However,  Mr. Houston does not speak for men  who have the interests of .the Conservative party at heart. The work be is  now doing leads to the belief that be  has only the interests of John Houston  iu sight.  The harvest season lias started on  the Portage Plains. Some of the farmers started cutting their barley last  week. Indications point to an early  harvest and while the yield will not  equal last year a fair return is assured  The Toronto News has discovered  that the name of Chief Justice Killanl  is certainly a terrifying one.  Dun's "Reviewfor this week reports  Toronto wholesale trade as fair for the  season and conditions favorable.. Travelers are sending in good orders and  sorting up business is satisfactory. At  'Vancouver "trade conditions are steadily improving and reports from interior points are encouraging. Mining  operations on the island are more active than for some time past.

On the day of his funeral, the  writer was standing on Parliament  Hill, when, as the 3mposiug ceremonials were- in preparation, a white-  haired man, bent with years and tremblingly leaning on a staff, approached  and stood near hira. Falling into conversation on the stibjeet of the day, the  writer asked, "Did you know him?"  "Know him?" repeated the aged man  as he turned upon the questioner.  "Know him? Por thirty years I've  known no other name." There was  something extremely touching in the  feeling, amounting toadoration, which  could be framed in such words. An  old journalist on n leading Conservative daily of Ontario used to be struck  with the numbers of old men who  when in town would inquire for the  editor, and eome tottering up the  stairs to the editorial office to declare  their love for the old chief, and to assure him that tlioy were amongst his  greatest personal friends, and yet most  of them had probably met him but  once in their lives. So it was with hundreds of public men who had no other  claims to intimacy than the impression Sir John made on them".  The laying of the corner-stone of the  dry, dock at Kingston in 1890, vrtiBonc  of many occasions "which brought out  the kind of worship men had for Sir  John. There was no distinction of  party or sex in the ovation which was  given him. And when he looked  about him and saw old friends of so  many years' standing, many of them  older than himself, his face quivered  with emotion.  When Sir John had concluded a  speech in which the audience had pathetically protested against his statement that he was very near the end of  his career, the bagpipes struck up.  While they 'w-ere playing, an elderly  woman in a pliiii dress and style, but  with a kind fa*.e, gently worked her  way upon the platform and moved towards Sir John. As the Premier saw  her lie sprang to his feet, and with a  "Hello, old woman!" grasped her in  =.hisjanna and gave her_a heartyjkiss.  It was Mrs. Grimason.  "Who is Mrs. Grimason?," was a  question asked by many a reader of the  newspaper reports, in which mention  was made of the incident. Mrs. Grimason was a native of the North of Ireland, who, with her husband, settled  in Kingston in the first year of Sir  John's parliamentary career. They  were poor, and lier husband dying, she  was left a widow in somewhat straitened circumstances, with several children to support. Her husband had  bought from John A., but had not paid  for, a lot of land on I*rincess street. He  had let lilm have it at a reasnnnble-  pricc, and in Uie time of her difficulty  never pressed for the payments due,  element in an election, aud it was said  she could control about a hundred  votes. To whom these votes went  need not be asked. She became so absorbed in that one personality that, iu  spite of her keen sense of what was becoming.-in a woman, she would be  drawn to his meetings when often she  would be the only female present.  More than once on election night,  when the returns were brought in, sbe  would Appear at Sir John's committee  room, and walk up among the men to  the head of tbe table and, giving Sir  John a kiss, retire without a remark to  anyone. When a political picnic was  held near Kingston, Mrs. Griirmson's  van was always at the disposal of Sir  John and his party. One beautiful  trait in this remarkable old lady was,  thut she never prc.-.unied upon the fact  tbat sbe was favored with the affection'  of Sir John. It was only, on rare occasions, siich as the laying ofthe corner  stone of the dry dock, or the supreme  moment of bis triumph at an election,  tbat slie came within the veil, as it  were, and stole a kiss. At any other  time'she would let him come and go in  Kingston without obtruding herself  into his present e, although he might  playfully take her to task for neglecting to call; and in an election contest  she might never go near him to take  up bis lime, but would work for votes  with all the soul thut was in her.  Sbe often longed to go to the capital  and see her deity on the throne of his  glory; or, as she expressed it, to see Sir  John 'Hake his'seut," and at last, some  years ago','at Iheopening of Parliament  she niude 'the venture. It was the  event or' her lire, and it is no exaggeration to say that both Sir John and  Lady Macdonald were proud . and  glad to see her. Readers will remember the remark of the old . Scotchwoman.-on tbe day tbo Princess  Lo'uUe was married to the Marquis of  Lome, and sbe became connected with.  the old house of Argyll. "Heeb mou !  but tlie Queen will be a proocl woman  this day !" It wits so that Sir John  must have .felt; when, he lobbed-'up to  tlie Speaker's gallery on this occasion  and saw Mrs.'.Grimason sitting with  l,ady Macdobakl. 'After the sitting  was over, she was shown the sights of  the Parliament Buildings, and the wife  of the Speaker took her'.'to his rooms  and bad luncheon. When hero Mr.  Mulock',. of Toronto, the Liberal racm-  berThappiinjd'in'j^  to her. She thought it strange tliat an  enemy should be admitted to these sacred precincts, and after manifesting  her nervousness and restraint for a few  minutes, she determined to tear off the  mask, aud as she turned a. sidelong  glance upon him, asked : "Excuse me,  Mr. Mulock, may I ask your politics?"  Mr. Mulock, who had heard of Mrs.  Griuisuson before, and remembering  tbat she wtn: gifted with a witaiti eloquence of the kind which Daniel  O'Counvll had to eope with in Mrs.  Moiiurtty, heshateil and pnvenliy ad-  ��lilled,. in the iipolngc-lii: wny of one  wIwijH) crimes have jsM b*v�� iincirthi-d  for lhe first time, llml   be ivt\��  a l.e-  and this lcni^cyand kindness wa* fljr'lier'    Mrs* G''. mason's co.m_io..t on  probably what first inspired tliat fcClJ tlio eonr^kiii was not simtl.ing tn Uie  fng towards Jobn A., which  grew in}  lier till lt became a   kind of worship. ���  No topic could absorb her as that; and  when she spoke ol  him thu pronouns  3Ie and'Hiiu w��rc alone suilieieitt tn  designate by way of distinction the  one from ail other persons to whom a  pronoun iu the masculine gender  could apply.

Luily Macdonald  took her down to Ennui:] ifl>, and sbe  never tired of lolling of the kindness  that was shown her. In Iter good rich  brogue she would describe her visit:  "They have a lovely place all their  own down by the Rye-do.

And if J went back thereto-day  she would make as. much of me as ifl  was the richest womun in .the coun-  thry. His'library is beautiful, and it's  covered over with books to the tip top  of the wall. While I was there, the  man brought in his letters from the  mail,���as thrue as I tell ye there was  tiie full of that of tbhu" (holding out  her apron). As for lier sentiments  concerning Sir John, words were too  weak to express ber worship. "There's  not a man like him in the livin' earth,"  washer sincere and ��� simple estimate.  To a question of Sir Henry Smith, as  to a statement of his- she.., replied, "If  lie said it wa3 so-and-so, I'd take my  oath that it was so, -whether I knew  anything, abo._ut_.it or not.". She had  nearly-feveryrpliotograpTi ever taken of  Sir John, and these she prized above  all things, especially the one taken in  his Privy Councillor's uniform, which  she described sis the one "taken in his  reghuiutals lenient the Queen." When  Sir John returned to power in 1878, it  almost broke her heart to know tliat he  had been personally defeated in Kingston. "I went around tbe next day,"  she said, "cryin' till L hadn't an eye in  me head. 'Never mind,'sea Sir John  to me, 'they're all below uie yet,' sex he,  'an' I'll be all right.' Andsurehe was,  for they'eleeted-biiiiHaway-ou t-itiHH-Brit-H  ish Columby. 'And now,' sez t to Sir  John, when I knew he was in, 'take  the best position you can get in the  hull counthry, and tell them all to go  to the dlvil." 'Is that what you would  do?' sez be. 'Yes,' sez I. He roared  and laughed, and then he said the  country would go the dogs if he did  that.?'  Jn this election her son-in-law voted  against Sir.
