In other  words, a district that selects as it- representative  in  the Legislature a man of low moral  character   must  not  complain   if   the   conduct   of   their cnoice   of  legi-dator is accepted as a fair simple of the ui-ij.��rity  of   the   men   of   the district   wnich  he    represents.  4* Either make the tree good   and nis   fruit ^o S,  or  e^e make lhe tree corrupt and his fruit corrupt,   for  the iree is known by his fruit."      We  are   prone   to  complain of the brand of legislation with  wnicU the  British   Cohimhii  Legislature  supplier us,   yet   we  must not overlook the fact that we are not altogether  blameless, inasmuch as we get just  such   legislation  aswemuht  expect   fr nn    the men   we send to    the  Local House.      Moreover, if the legislator, in   order  to recoup himself for  ��n   enormous   expenditure  in  lhe way of election disbursements,   fella   himself   to  the   highest bidder,    he is   only  following   out the  principle of the men who elected him  to  office.      It  has   been    said   that   the   intellectual    and    moral  capacity of the candidate for legislative place touches  the whole root of our political system.    The   British  Columbia LegWatur* is to  a ceriaia   exteat exactly  what we have made it, inasmuch   as   we   have been  altogether too ready  to select men   for office whelare  neither   morally   or   intellectually qualified   to fill  places   of  honor   and   trust.     The   Romans    were  Lhters and they   tent   to the Senate   men   imbued  2hthe   spirit   of war;   if  the   people of   British  Colombia  are to be jidged by their   representatives  regarded   �����   Utile better   than   highwaymen   and  thieves.  .s.  5*  7_3.n*S����S-S    -2  K*f ft isa.   _  i ftgS-i  t~S.%.  ii',i.:.  ��� ������on tiit.l ii coul mine mule, while it is now  '��"H.,��rrt   ilmi  durhiK  ��>����  lo,,K  refidence on  ���'nuir-li,.ti tuition of  Speaker   Pooley.

In other words, be �� flers to sell hi** railway and take a mortgage back fur tbe full amount  of the mortgage money. We would have no hesitation in purchasing Mr. DunemtnVs railwayed in  fact any other railway, on similar conditions, and if  he is still open to negotiate on these line**, we Khali  be pleaded to have our accredited agent interview  him.  Says   the Fort   Steele   Prospector:   "As the  snow  disappear*  and   spring   approaches   we   would eay,  miners and owners of  claims get in   and drill,   and  if }ou can't pell,  ship all   the ore that you   have   on  the dump  that   will   ftand   shipment,   by   so doing  you will make your prospects pay for  development.  There ie no use of denying   ihe   fact   tut men   who  have money to invent will refuse to invest unless the  conditions are favorable, and when  money is   withheld from investment the country and all the people  are bound to suffer.    This is the  condition of affaire  in this province.      The chaotic political   situation i��  such that investors cannot and will not   invent,   and  until a strong capable   government is   in control    of  the affairs of this province   you will not   be able   to  induce espial to invrsi.      There was   never a   mining movement   which   d,d    not   have  its    attendant  disaster and---mUfortui.es.     We have  fell them   here  but the  future genera! u-uli- will   l>e a   tremendous  increase in the population and mineral prosperity of  S.iuth East Kootenay.    The indications all   point to  a large immigration intn South   Ka*t Kootenay   this  year.       Many v\iil com*, from eastern    Canada,    arid  many    will    mm*    from    the    stales    of     Montana  Washington and Idaho. he fertile   valley of   the  ���0'  Kootenay * ff-rr? superior advantages to tlie home  seeker. Extensive mimng operation* and developments will hetarriMl on all over the district during  the current yeai. Future prosperity is plainly  evident, and evervwheie therein a ru-tle being  made to have a share of n, and every hody in South  East Kootenay should feel thankful for l be excellent  opportunities of rustling in.11)02.  Whkn    Cecil    Rhod-s,     who    di*d    recently    at  dpi IWo, wh told that hi* agent in Ith ��de<da, Dr.  Jameson, had crowed the Transvaal   frontier with a  band of raiders, bent upon the capture of Johannesburg, he was so utterly astounded that for a nme he  lost the  faculty of coherent expression.      Facing up  and down his library ai Grooie Schurr, he   spent an  entire night muttering to himself and declaring over  and over again that it was impossible thai   Jameson  could have bean inich a fool.      He had nupphed   the  miden* with aroin   nnd   equipments���thin   he  afterwards publicly acknowledged-    and he had set ihem  upon the frontier, but   wiih ihe understanding   that  there wmh to be no    riding until    the   outlanders   in  Ht-  Jonanreshurg were @ureof their  ground  and i  question to demand   armed assistance  in en fore* *  their demand** upon the Boer government.   Jani^  made the raid inopportunely and upon   hip own^  nponsibility, deliberately shutting   himself off from,  ail  lines   ��f   telegraphic   communication,   ho   tha^  Rhodes would   have  no chance   of   recalling   hiufv  Rhode* may have made many mistaken,  but he wal  never directly    responsible for a    blunder, and   i},��:  Jameson raid    was one   of the   biggest blunder-   <|  'modern time*. �� It ia nmall   wonder   that when thJfe  feouth    African dictator    heard   the   ue��s   he   wajft  rattled, but it is to hit* credit that he stood by J*mM  son totheendand never nought toclear his own skirtgfS  by denouncing or repudia^tin    hi* friend.  bciENTi��Ts* are taking a great mtere-u in an inven-lll  lion called the ** Talking Lamp," which originated S  it a t��pe��rs. in Germany, but ban been greatly ii  proved by a Parisan electrical engineer, named M.l  Charle* Heller. It consists of a ��dniple arc Umii 3  without a globe, placed on an electrical generator. M  The lamp is connected by a wire with a microphone, ft  When tbe lamp i^ burning nnd anyone speaks org  iings on the microphone the pound is transmitted 9  with ftuch purity and distinction that everyone in the j  room can  hear       Electrician*   can nut   vet  account  M~  for this strange phenomenon. As the distance of  the microphone from the lamp U a matter of indifference, it would ����eem that the 4l Talking Lamp"  hap a great future before it. Only two people cm  listen at a theatrephrme, Jbut it�� rival will enable  hundreds to hear.  Thk hirdtau Eagle ha* faith in the future of that  district.      It  navs:   ������ The  mineral  deposits of the  ���  Lardeau    are    beginring.  to    receive   the attention  they deserve.      There is an   active demand for mining properties for which there in sufficient   development work done io permit of an estimate being ni��de  as to their possible value,      Mo eover,   the demand  is made by parties who have the   means   iu puy  f"r  what they get.

Hi* parents migrated to  the States in 1867, and settled in Syracuse, N. Y.  where they have einee resided. Mr. Johnstone began his first real experience on the dramatic stage,  strange to gay, with Mr Frederick Wardeta�� light  comedian and juvenile man,   in 1885.      He later on  played in   Curtis'   ���' Sam'I   of Piwen/'  then   drifted  into melodrama, playing the leading parts in   ** My  Jack" and " The Power of Gold."      In  1892 he was  starred in a play called " Eagle's Nest," after  which  he played one   of    the leading    characters   in    New  York in a play   of   local   coloring,   entitled    ������ The  Inspector."      Mr. Johnstone wag leading tuan   with  the la e Marie fresect t  ��nd R. D. MacLean for;hree  year^, after  which    he played    in  a   comedy drama  called " The Sidewalk** of New York," and    in   1897  joined Mr.'Louis James a? hi- leading man,  playing  3, ch parts as   " Capitis,"   Mago,"    " Romeo," "and  u Pharnariu*." A >ear later when the combination of  Warde-Kidder-James wM*t>ffected, he was engaged as  leading juvenile    man.      Mr.    Warde  withdrew    in  1899 and the combination    was   James Kidder Han-  ford, Mr. Johns*! tne   continuing       La��t   eea����on    he  was leading man for   Madame Mndjet>ka, and   made  a pronounced'eucceea a* ". Faulcoubridge"   in   King  John.      The preset a��l over the  country   pronounced  Mr. Johnstone'*   " Faulconbridge"  a   most  finished  embodiment    off     Shakespeare's     splendid   soldier-  " night.  Popular belief in India etill credits  Sanyasis   and  other holy vagabonds with miraculous powers. Even  the native journals often chronicle   marvels like   the  mstantaneou.. cure of ii curable dilates or  the feed-  ing of thousands    out of a   *.mal)    measure of    rice.  One of the. e    prints    gives a description    of how    a  saintly SanysHi -aved   the   liven of   a   certain   rajah  and his escort from a   wild elephant.       As the party  was    proceeding    tinot.gh   the  lower    Himalayas   a  monstrous tusker broke out of the jungle and net   to  trumpeting.      The rajah and his followers were con-  siderably scared and   were giving themselves, up   for  lost when a noble   looking   Sanyasi   appeared   and,  standing in front of the travelers, told them to shout  a certain  order   to   the   elephant.     This  done,   the  animal bolted into thejuimb, while the savior of the-  rajah and his party vanished without   waiting to   h��  thanked.  *  '*K  ���     --si-  I*  A rourur friend of  mine v m�� vm 'm    h\_ Bi; -i  * -j 8MC��    "*j���� �����n    I���.0^41 iHiiinau  ������ cntir^ed with the* repair ..f tH.^nipli w}n,rt j��� t[u'  rear uf l.opl Robot-IB' army when the UO0lH w���re  l>Ar>,aihtrlv .tonve on il.e In,,,,,. commnnicuionH,  had oii�� or two dl��ck boyo oit:k, ami (lecide.i i., U(.k a  ilatnito ohit-f who wan in <;nar��e of Home IiuimIiwIh of  hi* tribesmen repairing the permanent way to _������..  them.

Yet Coyote That Bites had managed  io  achieve   both   those   delightful  ends, and all of the happy savages  on the  Colorado desert he was the  most      riotously,       tumultously  happy-      With what keen   delight  he   had   drawn    his   sharp   blade  across the throats of  Jos��  Sanches  and   hi�� wile   after he had   stolen  into their wagon in the gray dawn,  and   what     thrills   of     joy   shot  through his breast when he silenced  the   yells of their two little children  with the butt end of   their father's  own rifle!   And then, when he had  taken what gold was in    the Mexican's bag, what mescal   was in his  demijohn, and had strapped Jose1��  rather loose cartridge belt about his  sun brown belly,  with what fierce  pleasure he   stole   away   from   the  scene of his bloody work and   with  the Mexican's rifle on his shoulder  had   wandered far   down the   dry  arroyo, sipping from  the demijohn  the stupefying   juice  of the   agave  from time to time until he felt that  he was growing drowsy!  Then he had dragged his uncertain wav along until he had  come to the railroad track. He  Htaied stupidly at the bright steel  rails and looked up atthe humming wires in an awed ��ort of way.  He would like to lie there behind  ihe rock*, he thought, until some  Que would come along the track  and then try a *hot at him with  his newly acquired weapon. The  demijohn w��s growing light, and  the rifle wan growing heavy. Well,  it was gelling toward noon and  rather warm even lor an Apache,  and he w.ttiid lie down in the shade  of the rocks over there and rest.  The humming of wires is a soothing sound, and no sooner had his  bead touched the earth than sleep  look a mighty hold upon him and  wiped out hie realising sense of joy,  ao Bleep hno a way of doing with  everybody that bus anything to be  joyful for. And ao he lay, with  tbe rifle by km sido and hie unspeakably hideous fee��   turned up  toward the   blue that, arched   t,fa��  desert.  It was qui��t there and restful-  no tound saw the mutiic ��f th��  wires. Stay: there were other  pounds, but they cam�� nome ism��  after Coyote That Bites had thrown  himself upon the sand and gone off  to th�� land pf Nud. They cam��  faintly at first and mingled with  the murmurings of the wires.  Surely they were the voices of  children.  Had the red beast been awake  he might ha^re imagined that they  were the haunting voices ofthe wee  Mexican children whose blood he  had so ruthlessly abed that morn*  ing, but he heard them not. Tbey  were very far from being ghostly  voices anyway, those tones that  now piped forth so merrily as Dubs  and Gay trudged down the line.  They were walking to the scoop  out along the roadbed, not on the  track for that was forbidden.  There w<?re other things that  were forbidden too, and one of  them was straying so far away from  the station, but Dubs e?os *' taking  good care" of his three-year-old  sister, and in the pride of bin six  full years he was equal to the care  of half a dozen such as Gay.  ** 'F on'y had sum matches to  build a fire wiv," sighed Dubs.  14 I'd burn off vese prickes jus' like  ve Injuns does."  " O-ohC came suddenly from  under Gay's sunbonnet. '��� Wot'*  dat?"  " W'y, it's a jug !" And Dubs  left the 'loonies" and t-larted toward the pile of rocks where lay  the Coyote's demijohn and where  also lay the Coyote himself.  Th�� two trudged up th�� little  slope, and Dubs grasped tbe handle  of the demijohn, only to let it drop  again ond s�� una h.<a quickly with  Gay in bis arms, for be bad caught  sight oi the Coyote, and he was  smitten with a sudden desire to go  home.  But he navv the Indian did not  move, and ho he suddenly became  very brave. He wau certainly  Bound   atdeep   and no   inoro  to   bo  arod than papa  when be   lay   on  in hio- midday repose  mb9 100* *I>ati�� was quit�� sure he-  was a " worky" Injun, like the  Yaqui**, who shoveled and picked  on the railroad, and so his mind became, wholly at ease.  The Coyote'�� cartridge belt, which  had bmn to loosely btrapped, had  fallen oft and lay by his side.  Ther�� were a hundred very interesting bits of brass sticking in it, and  the children soon had these  scattered all about in tbe sand b?  th�� snoring Coyote. In the  scramble for the share ofthe innocent toys Gay let one of them  drop on the Coyote's leg. Perhaps  the mescal's Influence wag on the  wane, for a big brown knee was  thrust quickly up from the sand  and a btg brown hand clutched the  ugly knife at the Coyote's side, but  the hand fell and the noble red  man snored on.  Dubs tried on the cartridge belt  and became an Indian, all but the  indispensable .knife, and he concluded to borrow that from the  sleeper, whose fingers bad lout  their grip on the buckhorn handle.  ** h'abigger'n mommie's butcher  knife, ain't it, Guy?" the young  savage asked as he grasped the  handle of the devilish looking  blade. %' Now, you land ov*r  vere, and I'll get 'bind vi* wock.  Venyou turn along. I'll jump out  and kill you."  Gay demurred.  " Oh, it's on'y make b'lieve.  Vese kind o9 Injuns don't kill nobody."
