In  "����31'e we.-t trade has   not   been   as good   as might   be  esiml, but   if   history   repeals   itself, th��  progress  rhieh has begun in ihe  east will   with one   unceas-  .ng purpose   follow   ihe way   of the  sun.      But  we  have realty no cauhe to   complain, for   official   com-  fniercial figures heeni to  show   that in   almost  every  on* of it*, nibstannal interests British   Columbia  is  on the move, and ihe witfe men   of the east   are continually coining here led by the star of hop��   and ex-  ptv.tuihm.    They  are endowing us with their capital  ami   their   enterprise    which, in   addition to   that  which we already po.ihess, are making for us excellent  headway.       We"       are       not       only        progressing    but    we     ure     prospering.      We    are      not  taking two stepa forward and one backward, but are  K(>ing on all   the time, and everything that is undertaken   by   our people   seemrt   to   have about it   an  "mount of real go that shows   stability   of purpose.  With nil these things in view, Thk   Economist  does  ���HI n>l f,Msl lhlU il i8 n',<-cnoin6 an ili1*5 compliment   in  II winning one and all a " Happy New Year.'*  The application for enrollment in the Canadian  counted rifles at almost every point from Vancouver  to Halifax indicates that 6,000 men could have been  secured as easily as 600.  It is stated that the damage to the dredges arid  tug boats of the '.Dominion; caused by breaking from  the moorings in the Richelieu river recently, will  cost the country nearly a quarter million  dollars.  It is announced that Field Marshal Lord Wolseley  has just finished writing his memoirs.  A grahd Roman villa has  just been found in   the  ruins of Pompeii.  As an evidence of the esteem in which she holds  the British people, Ann Odelia Diss De Bar has decided to prolong her visit to England seven years.  A French aeronaut proposes to go over Mt.

Asa realizable  asset, Tara's Hall has many points that resemble a  Nelson newspaper.  Says Toronto  Saturday Night:   Crown   Attorney  Curry, by his candid address to the   Ministerial Ac?-*  sociation last Monday, has got  himself  into  rather  hot water.     Some of the ministerial brethren   think  that Mr. Curry was too sweeping in his remarks and  showed a tendency to apologize for wrong  doing, or,  rather,   the   failure   to   suppress   it.    Th��   Equal  Suffrage Club of Winnipeg, presumably an organization of strong-minded women, has   putned a  resolution   denouncing   the   way  in   which he  censured  women for fussing too much with public  affairs and  attending too   little to   the  duties  of   home.     The  despatch tells us  that " Mrs. Dr. Amelia   Yeomans  will   write   him   a  letter   on   the   subject."'.   Mr.  Curry has my sympathy, for both  long-haired   men  and short-haired   women   have   found  occasion   to  castigate me for offences  less  serious than tho oneg  of which he is accused.

No one is apt to  wander so far afield and give so many vague and  impractical knocks as the clergyman who is making  a crusade and fails to see how it is the official prose-  cutors and police do not suppress all vice, crime  and ungodliness for which a human being can be  jailed. Crown Attorney Curry's address should  have a beneficial result, even if some ofthe ladies  feel themselvts aggrieved by being accused of raking  agitations in public and failing to raise families at  heme.  Business has been of the dimension�� during the  holiday season to preclude the poa*ibi!fty of devoting  much attention to the forthcoming municipal campaign. So far, there appears to be very little interest taken in the election of a ma for and aldermen for the new year. No announcements have yet  been madt% end if it were not for the effort of a much  decayed politician on Baker street to keep himself before the public, it h�� just possible election day might  p&gg without anyone knowing anything about it.  TiiECity of Kamloops Curfew by-law, just parsed  by the City Council, provides as follow*: That it  ��hail be unlawful for any child under the age, or  apparent ���ige,or 15 years to be found on the streets  of Kamloop* without his or her parent or guardian,  between the hours -of 9 o'clock at night and *dx  o'clock the fo-iowmg morning, from the 1st day of  April to the 30ih day of September both inclusive,  and between the hours of 8 o'clock at night and wx  o'clock of the folio*ing mortiiiig fr< m (he Int day of  October and the 31*1 day ��-f March both inclusive,  in each year.

Commenting on the interview, Commerce has the following:     u The announcement, made  some  time  ago,  that the Province of   British  Columbia intended   to  establish an Agent-Generalship in London, and that  the Hon.

Turner,   at  one  time   Premier and  finance Minister of tho Colony, had been appointed  to the office io perhaps  the   beet evidence we could  have of the steady pjrofjreeo of Britioh Columbia,and  of the determination of ita inhabitants not to   nlkn?  it to otancl otill.

The white-winged dove of peace ho longer hovers  over the councils of the Liberals. Every district  organization gets in its protest against the provincial  executive, and the trouble has only started.  Smith Curtis declares   that an   attempt is  being  made to pack the Liberal convention at   Vancouver  in favor of the coast cities   to  the  disadvantage of  the Kootenays.  Ik instead of encouraging John Houston with  their applause when he is guilty of those flagrant  lapses from journalistic decency, his friends would  gently but determinedly escort him to a sewer and  there indulge in a heart to heart talk with him on  the error of his ways they would be conferring a  great favor en the man himself and also on this already sorely-tried community.  Thk financial papers, which are supposed to be  authority on everything under the sun, frankly confess that they cannot account for the drop in the  price of copper.  To thk Victoria Times it seems that all "news"  originating in Vancouver must be regarded with  suspicion unless accompanied with an attestation of  its truthfulness. It is such an enterprising place  that mere facts are too tame for publication.

I have received from   The  Copp-Ciark  Co.,  Limited, Toronto, two books recently issued   by Macmil-  Ian & Co., London.    One is from the pen of  Evelyn  Sharp, entitled "The'Youngest Girl in the  School,"  and is a cleverly written story of schoolgirl life.   The  story opens in a London schoolroom, where Barbara,  the little heroine, and her five   brothers   have   gathered for a consultation regarding a  change which is  about to take place in their lives.    The children are  motherless, and the father, a kind, easy-going   man,  given to writing learned books, has  allowed them to  grow up about as they pleased.    His latest work had  not   been   very   well received   in   England, but  in  America it had created quite asensatign, and the result was an   invitation  to conduct a   lecturing tour  through the States, which would take him from home  for som�� six months.   He had sent for his sister, Mrs.  Crofton, a wealthy and  eccentric old lady, to   help  him to decide what to do  with the children   during  his absence, and in  his absent-minded way had forgotten to mention anything about her coming  until  the day she was to arrive.     The children had never  seen this aunt,   and it was  this that had caused  so  much excitement in the schoolroom.      The children  were all   to go to Crofts, the  home of Mrs. Crofton,  and it was decided that  Brabara from   there should  go to a boarding  school,   situated but a   few   miles  from her aunt's home, and the story of her first term  is -most interestingly  told.       There is a pretty love  story, between the  adopted daughter of Mrs. Crofton  and a young doctor, woven in.    This is a story of interest alike for old and young, and has a  number of  tine illustrations.       The other book is entitled ' St.  Nazarius," written by A.  C. Farquharson.    It is the  storv  of two cousins,   Humphrey and Mirvan,  who  have been brought up as  brothers and educated in a  Monastery. The     two     were    as    different    as  possible    in     looks    and     disposition,    but      between   them    was    a    strong   bond   of  love.    The  rather     uneventful     years     at     the      Monastery  came to an end and the two were to leave it together  to attend a University.    Humphrey's vocation   was  for the priesthood ; Mirvan was  a  child of   Nature,  and was sorry to leave his home near the forest.   He  cared nothing for ���he world, and for   no companionship but that of Humphrey.    He   was  a   wonderful  musician and would pour out heart and soul in mu-  mc.    Both eventually love the same woman, but it is  Mirvan who marries her.    The story is well told and  intensely interesting.       Both of these books  are on  sale by The Canada Drug and Book Company, Limited, Nelson.  P. G.  C. P.
