NELSON, B. 0., SATURDAY, APRIL 18, 1903.  Number 40  NA  w  \\  Three in the House of Lords,  One in the Ministry.  BRIEF SKETCH SHOWING  Their  Relations to This  Country  and Their Present Duties  in the Old Land.  The election of Mr. C. D. Kose  to the Imperial House of Commons  for the constituency of Newmarket  gives us six Canadians in the historic Assembly. One of these is a  member of the government. In  addition there are three Canadians  in the House of Lords. Our three  peers are Lord Strathcona, Lord  Mount-Stephen, and Baron Hali-  burton.  Righ Hon. Henry Bonar Law is  the Canadian in the Ministry. He  was born and educated in Kent  County. New Brunswick, and is the  Bon of a clergyman, Rev. James  Law.  c. The Canadians who are members  of the House of Lords are all self-.  made men. Lord Strathcona, of  course, is familiar to us all. In  boyhood, a clerk in the Hudson's  Bay Company,-,away, off on tbe  nor h'shoreof the Gulf of St. Lawrence, he rose to the poBi tion. of-factor in the Northwest, acquired  -wealth, staked his fortune in, the  ���work of constructing the trans-  ���continental line, became a knight,  ind finally a peer of the realm, the  owner of Glencoe and the occupant  of Knebworth, Lord Lytton's old  home. For his philanthropy, his  hospitality, and his public spirit  Lord Strathcona is famous.  Before Lord Strathcona left Scotland for Canada in the service of  the Hudson's Bay Company he had  ae a companion in Aberdeen a lad  named George Stophen! He.parted  with Stephen to begin hia work in  Labrador. After the part ng, Stephen entered tho linen drapery  business, learned something of the  trado, and emigrated to Montreal.  At Montreal ho became in the  course of years the head of a wMe-  ealo firm, and ultimately a banker.  Reuniting with Lord Strathcona in  tho railway enterprise ho aidod in  onauring its success. George Stephen ia now Lord Mount-Stephen,  nnd tho colloaguo of tho friend ol  hifl boyhood in tho House of Poors,  Thocasoof Baron Haliburton dif-  fere from that of tho othor  noblemen.     No\ra Sootia surprieod the  world in tho first half oi tho nineteenth oontury by tho production ol  n roinarkablo book, "Tho Sayings ol  Sam Slide, tho Olookmakor."   The  volumo, whioh was ladon with philosophy humorously prosontod, bo-  camo tho moat popular work of tho  day,    It is ovon now road with the  doopoat intoroBt.     The author  was  Judge Haliburton, who prior to hie  olovation to tho bonoh had occupied  n Boat in tho Nova  Sootia  Login-  laturo.    .Tudgo Haliburton'a homt  waa   at   Windsor,   N.   S.     Then-  Arthur Lawronoo Haliburton, tht  present Baron, k'ub  born.     Thoro  ulrto, at King's College, was Baron  Haliburton educated.    Judge Haliburton pasHocl from Nova Sootia to  tlio Imperial   Houso of  Commons.  Ho with  Sir  Allen  MaoNab, wan  among tho iirat colonials to ait for  an English conatituonoy.     But hia  oxporionco   waa   aomowhat   bolloi  than that of Sir  Allen, who abandoned tho honor And roturntd to  Canada to spend the evening of his  life. Judge Haliburton's son entered the War Office and became  Director of Supplies and Transports. His work was warmly  appreciated, and he rose to the position of permanent Under-Secretary  for War. On his retirement he became the first Baron Haliburton.  Of the six Canadians in the  House of Commons, Mr. Law has  already been mentioned. One of  his colleague?, but sitting in a different part of the House, is Hon.  Edward Blake, who represents  Longford. Born in the County of  Middlesex, educated at Upper Canada College, and at the University  of Toronto, at one time- Premier of  Ontario, and at another Minister of  Justice, he is identified in an  especial degree with Canadian life.  A friend of Mr. Blake's in his  political work in this country waa  Hon. George Brown. Mr, Brown  married a daughter of Thomas Nelson, the Edinburgh publisher. He  had a son, George Mackenzie Brown,  so named after his father, and as  regards the second name, after Hon.  Alexander Mackenzie. This young  man spent his early days in Toronto, attended Upper Canada College, and afterwards went to Edinburgh, where he became the managing trustee of the Nelson firm.  George Mackenzie Brown is now a  member of the House of Commons,  and a strong supporter of the Liberal party.  When Mr. Blake led the Liberals  in the House of Commons at Qt-.  tawa one of his opponents was General John Wimburn Laurie,' who  represented Shelhurrie, N. S. This  gentleman sought the repreBenta-  of Pembroke in the Imperial House  in 1895, with success, and has  since sat for that constituency, giving the Unionist government his  support.  At the last general election Gil  bert Parker, who is a native of Ad-  dington County, ran in the Conservative interests for Graveeend. The  novelist won, and has Bince become  a knight on literary and political  grounds.  Mr. Rose, the latest addition to  the Cuuadian colony, is a eon of the  late Sir John Rose, at one time Finance Minister of Canada, after retiring from the Finance Ministership, entered the banking firm of  Morton, Rose & Co., and lived in  London. His second son, Charles,  vvho is now in Parliament, is alao  in the banking business. This gon-  tleraan spent his early years in  Montreal, and was on active service  as a militiaman during tho Tront  excitement, and on tho oconeion of  tho Fenian Raid. Ho also took  part in tho construction of tho Canadian Pacific.  Canadians have bocomo distinguished in England in ways othor  than politics. For oxamplo, Peroy  Girouard, son of Mr. Justice Gir-  ouard, of tho Supromo CourJ, has  riaon to tho front rank as a military and railway engineer. Ho  constructed tho railway for Lord  Kitchonor in the Soudan, nnd tcok  ohargo of tho South African Jail-  ways during tho war.

'A'  ,, i.u^JivnnmikS'^T^TieSr'Z WJNM  ,   ,,    .       ��.l 1,1/ .       ��.       ��r  On January 14, 1899, the following announcement appeared in the  Nelson Tribune :  "On and after Monday next,  John Houston will be the editor  and business manager of the Tribune. His salary will be $166.66  a month."  The object of thia paragraph ib  not to show that Mr. Houston  drew a salary scarcely commensurate with his ability aB a writer,  but rather to demonstrate that on  and after January 14, 1899, be  became responsible editor of the  Tribune, and as such cannot disassociate himself from the policy of  that paper. It is quite evident that  in those days Mr.'Houston was determined that he should not be  mistaken for a Conservative, for on  the 18th of January he published  the following paragraph :  "The question ia asked : 'What  side of politics will the Tribune  take ?' The Tribune will be what  it has always been, an independent  newspaper. It will not give blind  support to either the Liberal or Conservative parties, and it hafc1 no particular use for the self-constituted  leaders of either of these parties in  or out of the Kootenay."  On the 27th of January, Mr.  Houston believed the time was ripe  to show exactly where he stood on  the question of introducing party  lines into provincial politics. On  that date he wrote :  "Tho first attempt to run provincial elections on party lines hae  died aborning. In tho north riding of East Kootenay the Conaer-  vatives made a stand, but their  oandidate dropped out before nomination day. The people of thia  province, that is the rank and filo,  do not want party politics in their  looal elections, nnd probably in  timo tho would-be loaders will recognize that fuot."  Four days later, January 81,  1899, Mr. Houston in his papor ox-  pressed himsolf as follovvB ;  ������Whilo a fow Conservatives in  this provinco aro advocating tho  dfivwing of party lines in provincial bye-eleotione,', etaunch Con-  aervativos are vdvooating tho drawing of party lines in tho provinco  of Now Brunowiok, whoro thero ia  a gonoral oleotion ponding.       *  *       *   Tho pooplo of  British  Columbia will not havo tho now  dogma forced upon thorn, for thoy  know that if they nro to havo good  jovernmont it can boat bo obtained  )y electing tho best mon, irroapecl-  vo of their political  bias, to  tho  ogialntivo noaombly.   Then, again,  tho common pooplo nro just a trifle  tired of tho yauppinge of profoa-  aional politioiawi."  In thoso days Tins Economist waa  young, and with thnt impotuoua-  noao whioh in ovor tho characteristic  of youth oocaoionnlly gavo utterance to Btrong ConBorvatlvo foeliliga.  Thin waa a nourco of groat annoyance to Mr. Houston, and in ordor  to show tbo oditor of thia paper  that ho disapproved of nuoh uttor-  ancon and tho politiou of tho oditor,  on tho 2nd of February ho remarked in tho columns of tho Tribuno that Thk Economist wao  "edited by David Mark O&rley, a  hide-bound Conservative from Victoria."  This paper bad been advocating  party lines in a fight then going  for a seat in the Provincial Legislature. However, on the 26th of  February, a few days after the  election of Mr. Hume, the Tribune  said:  "The Eoonomist takes its defeat  philosophically. It says the principles it advocates may be triumphant some day."  On the 24th of February the Tribune has this item:  "The New Brunswick election  should bea.lessoh to the politicians  in this province who want to run  provincial elections on Dominion  party lines. The"; ji>eople in New  Brunswick eat down on the scheme,  and the ptople of British Columbia  will do the same ;when ��� given a  chance."  The foregoing extracts seem to  disprove the statement that the  Conservatives of Nelson are in duty  bound to regard John Houston as  a leader in their party by right of  long service in the ranks. Or in  other words, are Conservatives  bound to accept as leader any interloper who dares to inject his  jaundiced jaw into their counsels ?  The tramcars will begin running  the first week in May.  Evidently Mr. Prentice does not  feel well disposed towards Mr.  Robt. Green, and it is equally certain Mr. Green has not much use  for Mr. Prentice.   A ,  This paper has frequently stated  its belief that the Liberal Govern-,  ment would not change the existing  tariff on lead, and we appear to  have guaged the situation successfully.  One of those women who have an  antipathy for tobacco entered a car  and inquired of the man Bitting  near her : "Do you chew tobacco,  sir?" "No, madam, I'"do not,"  was the reply, "but I can get you a  chow if you want one."  There is an increasing demand  for the stock of the Cherry Creek  Gold Mining Company, 75,000  shares having already been disposed  of in St. Paul at 25 cents per  eharo. Tho stock will be increased  to 50 cents a share, on account of the  Btriking of the big1 load on the  main tunnel.  Mr. R. S.

He is known among his  intimate friends by the pet name of  "Olalla Jock." ; He has a strong objection to being "muzzled," and ie  not afraid to say so.  A. E. McPHlLLIPS, member for  Victoria City, is looked upon as  one of the most concientious members of the House, and makes every  effort to do what he thinks right.  He is a great orator, and can talk  more and say le33 than any public  speaker in the Dominion. Thip  may be accounted for, by the fact  that he ia a lawyer, and therefore a  professional orator. His dashing  military app'earance and fierce  moustache would certainly entitle  him to the position of "chasseur" in  a German band.  W. C. WELLS is member for  Northeast Kootenay and Chief  Commissionei of Lands and Works.  The former position he is fairly capable of filling.'

He is not  an "eloquent speaker, but can make  some very lucid explanations oi  departmental affairs .when Called  upon to do so by tho House.

ESTES AS A SPEAKER  Appointments that Seem to Meet  With   Popular  Favor.  , The Nelson Agricultural and Industrial   Association   has   secured  from  the   C. P. R. all  the vacant  lots lying eaBt  of the present re��  creation grounds, and  will  extend  the fence 400 feet on the east side,  with   the    view' of   making   the  grounds   large enough to have a.  race track.    By this change the lacrosse players  will have  twice as  much room as they have how, and  there will be  ample room for the  erection of suitable buildings  for  exhibition  purposes.    The exhibition will be held  the last week in  September,  and  good   substantial  prizes will  be offered  for poultry,  fruits, vegetables, horticultural products,  ladies'  fancy  work,  school  work, etc.   Of course the principal  exhibit will be the  product of the  mines,    Nelson is  so situated that  the display  of  minerals should be  most attractive;    The officioIs -; ol  the association, now that they have-  secured the grounds, will get down  to business at once.  Mr. Este?, president of the-  United Brotherhood of Railroad  Employees, has been lecturing in  Nelson this week. Without discussing the merits of the present-  strike, it must be admitted that  Mr. Estes knows well how to placi  his "side of the question in its best  light before the people. He is a  fluent speaker, and possesses the  quality of sustaining interest in his  subject for an hour or so at a time.  The peculiarity of Mr. EBteB' atylo  is that he breaks right into hia subject at once, and at no timo does it  appear aa if he was speaking simply for the purpoBO of gaining applause. If any fault can bo found  with Mr. Ed ton. it might bo his Ion-  donoy in tho direction of repeating  old stories, but thoro is thia much  to bo said in extenuation of thia offense, no mat tor how old tho story  may be, ho tolls it well, and in  doing bo, illustratoB his argumont  vory forcibly.

Nelson, March 14th, 1903.  EDITORIAL COMMENT.  Nelson will   have a  $40,000 court   house.  Many  are inclined  to believe that this is the  result oi representations made to the government by Supreme Court judges, but such is not  the case.    Mr. John Houston did it with his little hatchet.    It would   be useless longer   to  keep this  matter  a secret, and  Mr. Houston  with that modesty which is now regarded as hia  besetting  sin bos at last been  forced to come  out in an extra and  make the admission that  he secured the court house for  Nelson.     It is  now helieved  that if the government had not  placed   the ,!N0,C00  in the estimates for this  purpofe, tbe member for Nelson district would  have put up the building at  hia own expense.  However this contingency did not arise.    The  government will  build the court   house, and  now the multitude  proclaim in a loud voice :  "Great is Houston of the Nelsonians."  The Economi.-t has ever acknowledged its  allegi.ince to the Conservative party, believing that tho Conservatives had taken the initiative in every groat reform and had enrolled in their ranks the greatest statesmen.  However, this paper, has always qualified its  confession oi political faith by acquitting the  Conservative ymrty or any member thereof oi  any responsibility for tho utlorancos of Thu  Economist. Tlio Conservative party has  enough pins lo answer for without shouldering  tho burden of this pnper'a einB of omission  and commission,  Somo of Ntlfon merchante  havo decided to  inaugurate iho cosh eystem on and after May  1.

The remark in the Tribune that this scheme i.s adopted to ensure tbat the candidate nominated  shall be the choice of the party is an insult to  the intelligence of members of the party, as  the scheme itself is an insult to their free will  and choice.  Mr. Houston's frequent reference to Mr.  Dunsmuir as "Jim" is merely a delicate notice  to the outside world that the coal baron and  the member for Nelson district are old college chums.  One way of judging a politician is by what  he has done for his constituents or for the general welfare of the province. Another is by  what he has prevented being done that would  have worked injury or injustice. What obnoxious piece of legislation can Nelson's  present member mention he has succeeded in  "killing ?" Wherein has he displayed any  evidence of statesmanship?  CI *��  TnE Economist i&in receipt of. a complaint  from a citizen to tbe effect that he is frequently  insulted on the street when in company with  his wife. The offense is committed in such a  way that it is difficult to apprehend the offender. It is apparent to many that a epirit of  intolerence pervades this community, and the  most nnfortunate part of it is that it is almost  impossible to check the exhibitions of this  spirit by . ordinary recourse to law. If an  offender were caught, it would be well that he  be made an example of.  If the Liberals of Nelson can find a candidate as "innocent" (to use the Tribune's expression) as the chosen Conservative standard  bearer, the strongest political battle that has  ever been waged in this riding is certain to  follow.

The investigation into the Gamey charges  throws a flood of light on the methods by  which Premier Rosb has held on to his office  for a few years back. These revelations cannot fail to injure Canada in the outside world,  and the truthful Canadian cannot deny that  the politics of hia country is rotten to the  core. When the time comes to investigate the  methods of politicians in other provinces it may  be that the discovery will be made that Ontario  is not the only province in the Dominion that  needs to be ashamed of the conduct of her  legislators. And that time will Burely come,  and it is not far distant either.  The government has had several anxious  moments this week. Smith Curtis' resolution  favoring dissolution and an early appeal to  tho country was only defeated by the vote of  the speaker. The absence from the House of  Price Ellison, who had expressed himself in  favor of tho resolution, saved the government.  Very likely the end has only been delayed for  a few days. Joseph Martin expressed tho  situation clearly when he said of the government that: "While shaping its polioy to the  demands of individual members, it could  neither inaugurate nor prosecute any effective  or vigorous policy." Thoro is no cohesion be*  twoen tho different elomonts from whioh tho  government derives its support, and thib ab-  Benco of natural attraction can only result in  ' tho destruction of tho government, perhaps today, to-morrow, or a week honco. In tho  meantime, it would bo woll for thoso who aro  ao loud in their professions of anxiety to boo  good mon in ollioe, to make preparations for  tho inovitablo, and bo ready when the timo  comes to carry out their obligations to tho  provinco.

A ETidden gale had sprang up from  the northeast; great black backed gull  and feeble winged puffing had been  forced alike through the smoking mists  inland. Night fell amid the clash of  vrind and sea. A narrow track winding  round the cliffs led past a cottage;light  Ehono from the windows, and in the  kitehon were three women. Tha youngest lay in a truckle bed, a baby against  her breast; an old woman, tall, gaunt  aud white haired, sat at A table, the  Bible before her, muttering over familiar passages with awkward lips; the  third moved softly about the room preparing supper. She stood a moment by  tho bed, as the child broke into a long,  low wail.  "Poor lamb!" she said. "Ho frets as  if your breast was cold to him."  "Maybe 'tis cold," replied tho sick  girl indifferently.  "Aye, But not tonight, Nan," the  other protested, "and his father out in  a storm like this."  "Tho Lord have mercy on the lad,"  exclaimed the old woman, glancing up,  "he's got that scampItab Tappwi' him  in the boat.' Scores o* times I've told  Joss 'twould be safer to sail 'long o*  decent folk."  Nan stirred uneasily. "Rab's aa good  as tho rest o' 'em," she muttered, "and  a long ways handier."  "Handy wi' his tongue belike," retorted tho old woman, "there ain't his  equal for \yiug in this here parish. 'Tis  onlyreasouablo that the Lord should be  angered ag'in him, though maybe the  Almighty will mind that Joss has been  a good son to me and spare the boat."  She was silent a moment, listening to  the continuous clamor of the massive  door bolts that barred back the storm.  "Aye, that itab," she burst outfiercaly,  "they should cast himDoverboard the  game as the men o' Joppa cast the  prophet Jonah, son of Amittai. Who  knows but tho Almighty may be speaking now by> the voice o' the wind? 'Cast  him out, cast him out, and the raging  wuves o' tho sea shall foam, upon hia  limine.' "  "How daro'ee speak such words as  them!" cried the girl, springing up in  bed. "The Lord ain't no Moloch to devour men's lives."  "And what's Rab Tapp's life to  ehee?" replied the other sternly. "It ill  becomes a mother with her first chile at  breast to bo taking such thought for  furren men's lives."  "Como, come, mother," Interposed  the third woman, "let Nan be. Supper's on the table, and you'd feel better  for a snatch o' sommat."  "I did well to name 'ee Martha,"  cried tho old woman, turning on her-.  "Your thoughts be too mucii taken up  wi' tho things o* this world. What call  have I for bite or sup when ihe great  starved sea is hungering after my son?  Ayo, but Joss, lad, lad," she continod  io herself, "and you that fond o' whis.  tling!"        ' . , '... -    :'"  Martha made no answer, but, pouring out a cup of tea, brought it to the  sick girl. "Happen 'twill qutooh your  thirst a bit, Nan," she said.  " 'Taint that kind o* thirst," replied  tho othor wearily. ���  ,t  "Tako it all the same, lass," Martha  urged, and tho girl drank.  " 'Tis salt as tho sea I" she exclaimed,  pushing tho cup from her with a shudder. '' Seems as if I knowed tho taste o'  drowning.' *  '���And woll you may," exclaimed tho  ��ld woman, "when your man is forced  bo nigh to it."

"You don't lovo  it tcrriblo tendersome," she said.  Tho girl, turning away her head,  made no roply. Without the storm  clamored moro fiercely and tho faces of  tho listening women grew white and  teuso.  "Pray for them at sea," exclaimed  Martha, glancing at her mother.

"O God!" sobbed the woman, "he  wor a good son to me, a good son to  me." She was silent a moment, and the  storm without upreared itself against  the cliffs, rocking the cottage in its  heavy embrace.

Nothing is more amusing than to  watch two acquaintances saluting in the  streets of a Japanese town. As they  come in sight of each other they slacken their pace and approach with downcast eyes and averted faces, aa if neither  was worthy of beholding tho other.  Then they bow low, so as to bring tho  face on a lovel with the knees, on which  the palms of tho hands are pressed.  A succession of hissing sounda is next  made by drawing in the breath between  the closed teeth, interspersed with a series of complimentary phrases uttered  with great volubility in a sort of under-  toned falsetto, each trying to oatdo hia  friend in rapidity and extravagance of  language, while the palms are diligently rubbed against each other.  At last the climax is reached, and  each endeavors to give tho precedence  to the other. For some moments, perhaps for a full minute, the polite con  test continues. Then the ceremony al>  ruptly ends, as if the difficulty were capable oi none but a brusque solution,  and the two pass on hurriedly, with a  look of extreme relief.  ���  o  +^^++++^++++^��><��^  Don't Miss T  Opportunity.  ,3  ���r  We are giving "big discount on our entire stock of  atches, Clocks, Jewelry, Silverware and Sterling Silver Novelties j  A Glance  at Our Show Windows will Convince |  rone that We Mean Business.

As sho uttered the last words the sick  girl sprang from the bed and caught the  old woman by the shoulders. "How  dare 'ee mind tho Almighty o' Rab's  weaknesses at such a time,'' she cried  passionately.,  "And do you reckon that the Lord  has forgotten 'em?'' replied tho old woman in a hard voice. "Ain't they all  written in tho book o' judgmont?''  "Thoro be scores and scores o' folk  on tho sea tonight," tho girl answered,  "deal wickeder folk than Rab, and why  should the Almighty bo special took up  wi' ho?

An eelskin leather factory is situated  in a quiet street in the neighborhood of  London bridge. Here aro prepared and  manufactured various articles from the  skin of the con\mon eel. The skins are  manipulated by numerous complicated  processes until they resemble and would  easily be taken for leather, although of  a more glutinous and pliable nature.  This strange commodity is cut into  long,, thin strips and plaited very closely together for whiplashes and to covey  portions of the handles of more expensive whips. Certain kinds of lashes and  harness laces are also made of eelskin.  This leather is almost indispensable in  articles of this description, whera_flexi-  bility allied with an uncommon toughness is desired.���Invention.  ceaSoecialtvoffin  p5K$  eweler,   ���son  ���: ��.  ^ i    *t  tsfes  Iii  Dodson'a Bohome.

This   gentleman    comes  here highly recommeded by the press  and public.    His company is said to be  well-balanced and capable  of   giving  acceptable performances ofthe Shakes-  perean   drama.    No   doubt   they  will  receive the patronage to w'-:ch  their  merits entitle them.    "!>' heliea': will  be the bill for MoikI.i-. night  TheNcison Am:, eu ��� Dramatic Association did not extend the usual courtesies to this paper; therefore we are  indebted to an outsider for the following criticism :  " The performance of 'Jane'  at  the  LNelson Opera House last Monday evening was eminently satisfactory  to the  friends of the performers, but scarcely  pleased those who had no other interest   in   the   paoduction    than   to   be  amused.   This is uot saying that the  presentation   was altogether bad,  for  such was not the case.   Indeed there  were many radiant moments throughout the long evening.    Mrs.  Davys,  who gave the part of   'Polly  Pixtou,'  fully realized  all   that  was  expected  of    her,   and    sustained    her    reputation   as   :i     clever    amateur;   and  Miss Johnstone, as 'Lucy Norton,' although   failing   to score   several fine  points, gave an acceptable interpretation.   Mrs. Cummings is also entitled  to a word of praise.    It is doubtful if  Mrs. Davis ever saw a real actress in  the part of'Jane'; if she did,  sho neglected to make it a model, for nothing could be further from Miss Johnstone   lieu net t's    conception    of  the  thrifty wife than the interpretation by  Mrs. Davis.    It may be tbat Miss Bennett was altogether at fault and  Mrs.  Davis the embodiment of the creation  of the author's 'fertile fancy,  but the  public will be   excused   for inclining  tenaciously to   the  Bennett tradition.  The fact of the matter is Mrs. Davis is  too ambitious, although on  more than  occasion she has given some slight evidence of possessing just a spark of histrionic geuius.    Mr. Winter has done  many things better than his 'William';  but  he  was   not   by any means the  worst.    Indeed, the audience seemed  to think he was  the best.   Mr. Blakemore,  it was painfully   evident,   had  never seen this play before, and was at  variance with tlie author in its motive.  His acting left  rccm for harsh criticism.    His great fault is his studied  determination  to   play  all  parts  the  same. The prompter piayed Mr. New-  ling's part most acceptably, thereby relieving tho latter gentleman of considerable study.   ."When an amateur goes  on tho   stage   without being able to  speak a line, lie presumes too much on  the good nature of his audience.   It is  sincerely   hoped   that tho next time  Mr. Newling appears before a Nelson  audienco he will know a few linos, if  for nothing else- than  to convey tho  impression that ho is not disposed to  malco tho duties of  tlio prompter too  onoroua.   Master Uummings  was  not  half bud, but the part of 'Pixton'has  heen dono better than It was by Mr,  Wright  last Monday night.     'June'  was   preceded by a curtain-riser, 'Barbara,' which wiih really enjoyable   It  was long niter 11 o'clock,  when tho  curtain dropped In a most erratic manner on tho lust net."  lor Gas!  1  !  ?

Editor Economist: As a Scot I take  objection to  the criticism of the Daily  News in  reference to what was said  about the  predominance of the Kailyard songs in   the Jessie Maclachlau  concert, and  that   Miss Dean's rendition of "Mazurka de Concert" was  the one redeemable feature of the evening.     The   writer had a right to his  own    opinion,  but   only   one    song,  Kail-yard, was sung, and was appreciated by those who certainly were in  the majorit y, and understood the nature of the song, and the people it delineated, unless the writer had a fling  at the Irish   song Barney O'Hay and  classed it in the same category.    Other  than an alien, surely no Briton whither  born in the old homeland or a descendant, aiid whose heart-blood would not  surge through every vein in his body at  the stiring   song of   Ilule Britannia,  sung by Jessie  Maclachlan that night  who could not appreciate it and value  it worth the  admiration alone if nothing else had been sung Is I doubt fit to  yield a sword in tha cause of hia country, though he mightyield apen. It was  a Scottish   concert; and a Nolson nd-  m irer   heard a singer, of   undoubted  merit, an  exponent of Scottish song,  that has never been equaled.     Not a  jar in a note, perfect  In articulation,  whoso heart  and soul was in every  sentiment and is acclaimed in Scotland without a peer. And surely whoro  she has sung to  audiences of twenty  thousand in   Glasgow there would be  an adverso criticism, If thoro was not  the highest standard of porfect-Hong.  Let us infuso tho sonso of pleasuro and  harmony into tho world wo live in, and  act uh a critic of what wo understand,  hut touch not with unhallowed hand  the  birthright of a patriotic woman,  who IniHHhed pleasure in hor path wherever hIio has travelled.
