The llrst clause board no  assign.ibli* moaning whatever. The  .itloption of a policy of state ownership of railway moans something. It  would nie.tii Unit tho next line to be  built in the piovince would be built  'ny the province, but a policy, directoel  towards this iilt.iin.ito ownership of  railways by the government means  untiling! and when coupled with clause  three, itirei'iilly providing for a continuance of land bonusses to railway  undertakings, is seen Co be obviously  only put t litre to please the* nioie advanced   members   of   the    provincial  . j *    .  Liberal party. Under the .head" of  Chinese the platform declares, for the  disc nui'lgouieiit of Oriental immigration and the employment of "Oriental  labor. This not .1 new article in the  Liberal creed. It i.s one, to the declaration of which the'present Grit British Columbia members of the Dominion parliament owe in no small nieas-  uic their piesent scats and which or.ee  comfortably seated tlfey have never  taken the trtu.blu to bring their influence to bear on the Dominion ministry to carry out, in spite of the fact  that their leaders' are steeped to the  lilis in ante-election pledges lo do so.  Do they expect this province to' be'  fooled intcVnccepling their pledges in.  this matter again'} ..-.*.*.  Under the head of Redistribution is  n. clause carefully, worded so as" to  convey the least possible .iiiioiiiifc of  inclining * in J the laigost- possible  amount, of words. It reads : "A.f.iir.  readjustment of the present representation on'lhe basis of population.-  always allowing to sparsely populated  districts a proportionately larger representation than to populous districts  and cities." * Now ..how thcAGiits  propose to allow sparse populations it  propoition-itely larger representation  than populous districts by readjustment on the basis of population passes  lontpieliension. The clause has no  _inean'mgjU..al'__It is not merely vuguo  "ancf indefinite. ^'Ifc'is i1elib"t*r.-itely~'iiiys-  bifyiiig'.ind'tlcct-pl.ive,' but redistribution is ti ticklish subject anil the ob  jett of a Grit platform is not to announce a policy lint to catch votes.  Lastly.a. good deal of the platform,  can onlv.be called an opposition to the  policy of the present provincial government in the same sense that the.  policy of I he Ltiuriei government can  be called opposition to that of the old  Conservative regime. That is tn say  in the sense that its opponents, are  currying it nut. ThePiemier himself  has dechued for the repeal of the  working mineis' licenses anil the  abolition of the present method of_ex-  pending the public load  money.

CONTEMPORARY OPINION  The Liberals'-and Chinese  Immigration.  Another section of the plat form reads  as follows:    "The  discouragement by  all constitutional methods of the imuii-  .ration and   employnient.,of Oriental  In borers."  The people of tliis province would  be pleased if the Grits would tell theni  *iow they are going to "discourage"  Chinese linmigiiition-* They w-ere going to "discourage" Chinese immigration nt the last Dominion election.  In ftict, "Ir. Maxwell and Air. Mcluiies  were elected on the plea Unit if they  weie returned the _C_.itn-i.il government  at. Ottawa" would do anything Ihey  wished in rcgaid'to the Chinese and  that they would have the poll tax  itiised from ^"i1). to ft'iOO. Iti pi-oof of  their statement they showed telegrams  from Sir Wilftetl Laurier stating lhat  hev would be guided on the Chinese  question by the-wishes'of the membeis of parliament from* the west.  ~ Was the. poll tax. raised ? , No. Sir  Wilfred Laurier prevailed upon Mr.  Maxwell to let the Chinese question  drop. Sir Henri .Inly, a member of  tbe.JDoiiiinion.c-.iliiuel, said he. would  vote against any piopositiou to " din-  coui-ige" Chinese immigration.  ��������� The people have been fooled once on'  the Chinese question-by the Libeials  and they can* hardly expect-lo. fool  them again.���������Slocan "City News:  s    ,.   .The B.

There is nothing new about  these things, nor can Uie Grits shew  ���������nny reasonabl-i cause for belief lhat if  they weie in otlice they would handle  these points to any greater advantage than tbe present administration,  or I biit keeping lhe taxation down to  ils present low i.ite, they could possibly do tiny more for the development  of the province than Mr. Turner's  government i.s doing, or handle the  provincial leveuues more honestly or  to huller advantage. The country  was treated to all iL could swallow of  this class of Grit blether in the early  part of 18!)o. The only tangible tesult  has been n, new loan, a considerable  increase of expenditure, several scandals of first-class magnitude and tlie  public works system country turned  into an instrument of wholesale  bribery, unpaiallelled iu the history of  Canada.  Of a really progressive policy there  is not ti single note in the whole platform. Even so obviously a pressing  subject for alteration as the present  system of the adiniuist rat ion of the educational department Jis not so much  as mentioned. But that the centralizing at presentin [vogue, will  have to be abainlonedfoi* some  system resembling that obtaining in other parts of Western Canada is quite certain.

At the front ond of  tho  train'is the track-layer.    This  is   arn  ordinary flat car.    Running along its  right hand side is a sort of trough, in  which are  rolleis.     This  trough, connects with ti long   trolley .-trni. extend-   *  ing out smile 20 feet or more  in   front  of the car, an.l  built with an   incline.  towaid the ground.

The engineer then  gets the signal, when the. train  moves  up one rail length, and tlie same thing '  is repeated.    Itis all done "in'an incredibly   short  space   of    time,   and  when one remembers  that something  like seven miles of track  were laid iu  one day on the main line of the Cana-.  eli.in Pacific Railway, one can imagine  how expert these trackmen become.

There  is not much talk about it, but, nevertheless, seven out of every ten men in  the Slocan have made up" their minds  to go to the Yukon in the spring.  Another reason for the scarcity  of; monay is that many of the  workingmen have not as yet removed  . their families here, and every month a  large sum of monev which would be.,  spent in this district if they were here  is sent to different i.irts of tbe country  and the United States."

The Finder of the Footprints, and nn  Hthnologisl's Calculations���������Heights of  All the Giants We Know Of.  t  Dispatches from Victoria, British  Columbia, announce the discovery of  a series ot gigantic footprints In that  province. They are apparently made  by a human being, and,if so, it Is prima  fncle evidence of the existence of n  race of prehistoric slants on the Pacific coast.  The footprints wore found on tho  Jslund of Victoria, near lhe town of  Quatsino, on the west const. Their  discoverer wa3 John L. Leason, a  storekeeper of the town, and a man  ot Intelligence. He reported his find  to Captain Foot, of the steamer Mischief, who repeated his account to the  members of ihe Provincial History Society, They, were satisfied oC Its Interest nnd importance, and a party  was sent out to make an investigation  It appears that Leason was walking  nt some distance from the town when  his curiosity was aroused by a strange  depression in a large flat rock that  lay before him. He was at the time  at the foot of a mountain.  The depression at once suggested a  human foot, but it was of enormous  size. There was a well marked hollow  where the heel would have been, and  a very faint depression indicated the  arch of the foot. The ball of the big  too and the rest of the forward part  of the foot wore plainly to be seen.  It is to be remembered that no other  animal has-an arched foot like that  of ..man. - ,  , Leason immediately proceeded* to  measure the print, and found that it  was twenty-nine inches In length. Its  greatest depth was four inches. Fascinated by his discovery, he carefully  exumined the vicinity. At first he saw  nothing which he could connect with  the print, but after a few minutes he  came upon another, - almost identical  It was nine feet away from the first  This apparently was the length of the  Btride, which the giant had been in  the habit of taking.  Following the direction-Indicated by  these two prints, Leason.found a tium-^  ber of others- They came to an end  abruptly, wliich was not surprising  for their surroundings must have undergone    tremendous    changes    since  .  Small   Worries   Often   More   JOant^rom  Thau "Velghty Afflictions.  "It is not always the real trials and  weighty afllictloiis of life that wear  out wuemen, but rather Live small  worries, the little pin-pricks, so to  ".peak, tliat are tlie ereat foes to peace  in our 'households," writes Ellsa K.  l'-.irker iu the December Ladles' Home  Companion. "Human nature being  vory Imperfect, a great .many good Intentions relating to trivial matters axe  so misunderstood and. become so mixed that more trouble is caused than  thoy were meant to create In the beginning. For, unfortunately, tilings  will not go right simply tor the wishing, nor, indeed, always for the trying.  Says one writer, 'Grave anxieties add  to our wrinkles; keen sorrows drive  nulls hi our cotllns; but It is the trl-  Hes, seemingly insignificant,- that darken  the days.'  "Tbesx* .slight annoyances are always  personal and usually conllnod to domestic matters; tho misdeeds of sor-  rants, the shortcomings of the chlld-  rrn, the failure ot llie breakfast, the  delay of tlie dinner, the spoiling of  Lhe cake in baking, an? all trials of  patience, while the arrival of unexpected company, the having to give  up a pleasant walk or an anticipated  night at the theatre, the" destruction  of our best ohlna by a careless servant, the 'loss of our pet dog, the killing by an early frost of our favorite  rose, are all bothers, which, while  they seem small, serve to annoy us  beyond the point of endurance. Tet  o:i these happenings come into the  daily lives of mpst of us, anil we must  expect them to "break into our felicity  and leave their marks behind. Much,  however, after all, depends upon ourselves as td Jiow these pin-pricks effect  us.

Says the learned gentleman :  Jt If! easy to reconstruct from the  footprint pf this prehistoric man his  ������itire form, according to the proportions of a modern man. An ordinary  man six feet high has a foot about  twelve inches in length. A man with  p. foot twenty-nine inches long would  be about two and a half times as tall.  or bctwgpn seventeen and eighteen  feet high.  To the man six feet high a weight  of 200 pounds may be allowed. Two  (���������nd a half times that would be 500  pounds, Add to this one-third for a  proportionate increase In all directions  and you have a total of 060 pounds.  That would be the approximate weight  of our (prehistoric man.  According to the same system of  rceUtrultie he would havo a brain  weighing J2~ ounces. That would  give him larKfl thinking powers.  lie would ba about one hundred  Inches round the chest, and would  have biceps eighteen inches In circumference.

Oiie of the oddest domiciles on earUi  is tliat recently erected at Yokohama  by .Dr. XV.1 Van der^Heyden, says the  San Francisco Chronicle. TUie doctor's  house is a dust'-prooA', air-proof, microbe-proof -.'-"building" ' of-���������glass. II  stands on, the open,^ unshaded grounds  of the .hospital - of" Yokohama.. The  house is 41 feet long, 23 ,f ee't wide aud  17 feet 'high. Large panes of -glass,' one-  half inch tiliick and about four inches  apart are set in iron frames bo as to  form tlie sides of "a cellular building  block-- Of these blocks the walls are  constructed. ' There are no window  sashes, the air escape .being tihrougb  beveral small openings aa-ound the upper part ot the second storey,* but  through whicli no air from the outside  Is admitted. The air supply is obtained  from a, considerable distance, forced  through a pipe and carefully filtered  through cotton wool to cleanse it o*f  bacteria. To' insure further sterilisation the air is driven against a glycerine-coated plate of glass, .which cap-"  tures all the microbes 'the wool spares.  The few microbes brought, into Uie  house in Oie' clothes of visitors soon  die in the warm sunlight, with which  the house is flooded. The space between the glasses of tlie .building  blocks Is filled with a solution, of salts  which absorbs.the ,heat of the sun; so  that the rejoins of Wilis house are'mruch  cooler than- those * protected" by the  thickest shades. In the evening the  interior is .heated by the salts radiating .the heat they have absorbed during the day.1* So effective Is the system of regulating tflie temperature that  a.few hours of sunlight, even in freezing weather, will render tire house  habitable.-' It is only when several  cloudy days follow in succession that  artificial heat is needed. Then it Is  supplied by pumping in hot air.
