Ten large  electric light globes  hang pendant  'from the ceiling and there are rows  of electric lights on three sides of  the chamber, just, below the galleries. When ail these lights are  turned on   it   makes the   chamber  . bright , and cheerful. , There are  four  rows of seats > and  desks for  ; the accommodation of the members  of the house. The tiers run north  and south parallel to each other,  and between each section^ of; two  rows there is quite a space. The  arrangement is, intended   to  sepa-  . rate the government supporters  from the members of the opposition  when they are anywhere near alike  numerically, but, at present, there  are maay members of the government seated on the opposite side of  the house. At the north end of the  chamber is the speaker's desk on a  raised dais. Here is where Hon.  David McEwan Eberts, the speaker, presides over the debates and  sees to it that the members do not  break in fragments the rules of the  house. The floor is' covered with  rich, heavy carpet in which the  color scheme is a white coat of  arms of the province of British Columbia on a red ground. Attire the  members of the house in togas and  it wou|d not require, any great  stretch of imagination   to conjur up  ceedingly vigorous man, but the  hair is .gray,��� a result, perhaps, of  the hard work incident to carrying  on the affairs of the province, and;  i  at the same time, bringinghis party  from practicaIly^aKminority to what  is now almost an unanimity, in  about seven years. His ,face and  figure are startling reminiscent of  Sir John A. Macdonald, Sir Wilfrid  Laurier and George Washington.  If Premier McBride were to attire  himself in the uniform of a Continental general, he could easily pose  for a picture of "the father of his  country."  The Premier's seat is the second  one in the second tier of seats on  the eastern side of the halt. On  the left side is Hon. Wm. John  Bowser, attorney general. . To his  right is Hon. Price Ellison, minister  of finance and agriculture, and to  the right of the latter is Hon. A. E.  Young, provincial secretary; Hon.  Thomas Taylor, minister of public I  works; and Hon. Roderick , Ross,  chief commissioner of lands. These  lieutenants of the premier are seated close to him in order that they  can be quickly consulted during the  proceedings on any matter,that may  come up that concerns affairs under  their jurisdiction and to answer the  questions of, the opposition members.

At the conference of Colonial Pre  miers,   held  a, few  London, it was  Legislative Assembly  of British Columbia  (Continued from Page Two)  .  the government and the opposition,  even though the latter are numerically greatly in the minority.  ��� Premier McBride, during the session of the house, is usually as calm  looking   and   as  impassive  as the  Sphynx.      Occasionally,    however,  when   the   opposition ��� assumes an  .offensive   one, and  criticises .some  measure   of the  government, .perhaps in an unjust manner, he shows  slight emotion, when  a flush shoots  over   the   pallor   of   his   face   and  makes it a delicate pink, which endures   only momentarily, and   then  ���'Richard is himself again."    When  he rises to speak, he  leans over his  desk, sometimes  supporting a portion of  his weight on   the   indexed  fingers of- both hands.    At  first he  speaks   slowly and   not  loudly,   at  the rate of  about 110   words to the  minute,   like   a  man  grouping   his  way in   the dark over  a place he is  unfamiliar with.     As   he continues,  like an individual in the light, where  the going is certain and  the road is  plain, his voice   grows   louder   and  the speed . increases  to perhaps 190  words   to   the   minute.      Then   he  lifts one or both his hands from the  desk and gesticulates   a  little.    A  moment   later   he   may   place   his  hands behind his back and then accentuate   that   which   he desires to  by   energetic   movements   of    the  head.     He uses the choicest of English,   is careful in   his   selection   of  words and his, voice has that magnetic quality,   which   is   usually an  attribute of  leaders   of   men.     He  always speaks logically, clearly and  convincingly and   fairly   illuminates  whatever he is   talking about.     He  is past master of the finer points of  debate,   and   his courteousy, tolerance   and   diplomacy   toward    the  members of  the   opposition   is proverbial���it is always "my esteemed  friend   from   Newcastle,"   or   "the  honorable member   from Nanimo,"  or   "the  esteemed  gentleman who  represents Alberni,"   and, if  one of  those in opposition has made a good  speech, he , congratulates .him on it  and   carefully   considers   and   even  adopts any suggestion which comes  from the other /side that   has value  to - it.     If,   perchance, any   of   his  supporters  get  in a   verbal   tangle  over a question   and   there is a dis?  play rises   to   his   feet and quickly  pours  oil. oh the   troubled   waters  and. harmony  of, temper  on   both  sides, - the  Premier  is , at. once   re?  stored.,   At the same   time, if there  is any need of fighting he can be a  veritable "fiery Rupert  of debaje"  and can deal   blows   right   and left  that are effective and to be  remembered   by those   who   receive them:  Premier  McBride   is too  earnest in  his work to show much humor, and,  if he has a keen sense of it, he does  not   display   it   much.      The   only  manifestation of it   is when the op*  position, by   some   taunt   or jibe,  rises and laughs   at the   expense of  Hon. Mr.   Bowser,   Hon.- Mr. Mc-  Phillips or   Hon.   Mr. Ellison,   and  then he will smile at   their discomfort u re. :  . When one watches him in   action  and sees how well he has the affairs  pf state in hand,  how easy it is. for  him to handle his own forces and to  repel the attacks of those   who are  opposed to him, and  listens  to  his'  broad views and hears  the   wisdom  of his utterances, the  conviction   is  forced that he is the biggest man to-;  day in the Conservative party in Canada, and that he   is a  statesman of  the   Laurier size.      That   he    is    a  great political leader has been splen-i  didly..demonstrated by the fact   that?  he has led   the   Conservative  party  from a practical minority to   almost  an unanimity in this province in the  past  seven  years, so that   today it  politically   dominates   the   province  and evidently has a long and promising vista of power before it.    That  he is a statesman is   clearly   proven  by the great change  for  the   better  that has taken place in the province  since  he first   began   to  guide  its  destinies. \Vhen he first began his  task its credit was far below par, its  industries and commerce languishing, and its people poor and discouraged, but how it is more prosperous  than ever in its history; its credit4 in  the leading money centres of the  world is Al, its industries and commerce are making' new records, and  the people are thriving and contented. This is the result of the wise  politics in regard to railways, liimr  ber trade and other matters that'he  has put into effect. The splendid results that he has reached show what  a wonderful influence for' the ' good  of a commonwealth may be reached  by a man of his type where the people   implicitly   trusts   him,  years, since, in  admitted by;rnany  that he was head and shouiciefs in  all the j .qualities .that are in 'the  makeup of a statesman, above his  colleagues in that notable gathering.'  Leading .English politicians,. recognizing that they were entertaining  ,a great man as guest, were so lost  in admiration of him, that.they.held  out flattering inducements to him in  an endeavor to have him take part  in Imperial politics, but he turned  the offer down, for the time being,  at least, as he believes.-, that the  much beloved people of his native  province need him for a considerable period, and because he desires  to recompense Jthem by great accomplishments for the trust and  honor they, have reposed in him.  At the time,- duty fixed by destiny, he will take advantage-of the  large opportunities that are 'waiting  him. ���' Men of- his ' exceptional and  extraordinary ability are not plentiful, and there are opportunities  awaiting them everywhere. There  is no telling to what high and shin-  ing goals, on the steep and stormy  Himalayas of fame, he may reach,  as he is well equipped with .the  qualities for reaching those that are  inaccessible.to most men.       ��� -  Opening of the ' Phoenix  Private School  ,'V,t Ironsides Anenue.  him and give him an opportunity to  carry'on their public affairs.  If is easily within the range of  probabilities that a man who has  won a province for the Conservatives in his mid thirties might conquer the Liberal forces of a Dominion  by the time he reaches 50, and mayhap reach a high place in Imperial  politics by the time his years have  been numbered at 60.  Premier McBride   is  believed   by  his friends to be a man of equal ability to Sir Wilfrid  Laurier,   premier  of Canada, with this difference   that  he is young arid has not yet reached  the limit  of his  capabilities,  while,  Canada's premier has   attained age  when undoubtedly great powers are  waning.    Mr.   McBride   has    been  asked by Eastern   Conservatives to  enter the  large  field   of Dominion  politics, as they have much  faith in  this   young   political   giant   of   the  Golden West.    They recognize   his  adaptability    for    leadership,      his  statesmanlike qualities, and naturally desire that he shall take a  prominent   part in   the   titanic   struggle  that is coming and   which   will ultimately place   the  Conservatives   in  power at  Ottawa.    The  time  has  not yet arrived, however, for him to  leave the large tasks that are before  him in his province, in which he has  already made   such   a. splendid   re-  Cord   and   he   will   stay  here   until  Special Private; Day-Ci^asses for  Boys and Girls between the ages of 6"  support I a^�� 24. years jyiiii be opened on April  17th, 1911.

Keith, of Olds, AIta.i a  trained nurse, who has had a wide  experience of Zam-Buk, speaks of  it as follows: ��� **I wish to express  my high appreciation of Zam-Buk.  I have personally tested it in a great  number of cases and find it excell-  ent. I have introduced it to a  number of patients with highly satisfactory results. Indeed, in many  cases I have been warmly thanked  for its introduction.  Speaking professionally, I would  give all sufferers from skin disease,  the following advise: Cleanse the  parts affected and apply Zam-Buk  freely and regularly. Use clean  lint and clean, soft rags for drying.  Zam-Buk and cleanliness will be  found  stfficient for the most stub-  ���   r l  born cases.of skin disease."  ��� Zam-Buk will also be found a  sure cure for abscesses, clcers,  blood poison, varicose ulcers, scalp  sores, eruptions, children's rashes,  piles, cuts, burns, abrasions,  scratches, scalds, and all skin in-  juries and diseases. 50c. box, all  aruggists and stores.
