SATURDAY.  MAY  1SUS.  " Lord Esther, in bidding farewell  to the bench and bar of England,  made a noteworthy address, in  which he set forth the highest  standard-; of tcjuity as the.rule of  "English law. Unsaid: "J never  have allowed myself to think that  avpidicial tribunal ought to allow  a person's rights to be overthrown  because there may be some  mistakes in ' the preliminary investigations by those who were  his advisers. I am speaking of  civil actions and disputes between  parties, aud in regard to the-se the  dutv of the judge is to find out  "-what is the rule that honor, candor  aud fairness in the position of .the  two parties would apply iu respect  tei the matter in hand. That i.s  tlie common law of England, and  there is uo other -law. It is not  only the common, law, but when  we come to the equity law it is the  s-ame thing.' The law of England  i-* not a science, it is a practical  application of the rules" of  right  -  and wrong to   a   particular   case  .by the-court."  HE DIDN'T ACCEPT  Why the" Hotel Tout Toiled in Vain the  Other  Morning.  The Winnipeg Nor'Wester says:  "On this morning's train from the  West was Chief of Police English of  Calgary, bringing with hiin a prisoner  for the Provincial prison who was  heavily shackled, as is the custom  when travelling. Both were in plain  clothes and as they stepped oft' the  train they were immediately accosted  -by an-ent'erprisiiig-toirtr^f rem-a-well-  known north end hotel.  The Chief of Police preserved a stern  and uninviting se\ erily of aspect, so  lhe tout turned his attention to the  prisoner, nut noticing that he was  manacled. The tout sang his psalm of  praise for some time and as his prospective victim begin to smile, he redoubled his efforts to induce the man  to become upuest of the hotel he was  so energetically representing. Suddenly he caught sight of the shackles  and swiftly "took a tumble." His retreat was inore expeditious than dignified but he had time to lipar the  mocking laughter of the amused spectator.--, who one and all choiu**ed.  '���������Worked again old 'chap, wotked  ng.iin."  To tho Editor of The Hi.tt.u_.  Silt: My attention has been called  to your ({notation in a recent issue of  an English opinion of tho results of  local option in Norway. I consider it  misleading fnr several reasons.  The failure of a  local  option  law in  Noiwuv would have no bearing whatever upon the ([iiestion of national prohibition  in  Canada.     All   men   know-  how iu   Canadian   local   option   campaign.!     ihe.   fri'(|ueiit   objection   has  been that the area covered  by  prohibition   i.s   loo   small   to    be  strongly  ellVclive, nnd a national law  would be  immensely   more   elVor.live.     Then it  local option   law  does  not  cover   tl e.  prohibition ol'   manufacture   and   importation c 1'liquors  which   i.s   a   veiy  important  pari. o[  the  iiueslion   proposed in the plebiscite on   prohibition  We   are   accustomed   tu    sweeping  assert ions    concerning     the    alleged  failure   of    prohibition   made   in   the  interests   of   the   Kipior   Lraflie.   The  tralliu as protected by law li is st "iidily  increased its  business  and   no.v   it   is  the recognized source of time-fifths or  four-fifths of nil crime,  povei ty,   vice  and insanity  in   every civilized   lum'.  Those   interested   linnnci.-illy   in   lhis  business, eitlu r directly or indiri c ly,  and  those  whose*,   appetite  for  drink  does not leave  I hem  free  to  give,  an  unprejudiced judgment, arc now using  everv'pretext to   prevent  enlightened  public sentiment from closing up  the  barrooms.    They have been forced  to  discontinue their defence ot them, and  their  last  lesource  appears  to   ho in  trying to convince the people that, men  aie such  sluyes   of   appetite   and   so  wedded to the whiskey jug that pio-  hibitory     law   would    be.     generally  defietl.    Harry   P.   Crowell   w;is   the  urnnngcr of the iiiiti-prohibiuon force s  in Pennsylvania a  few  years  a~ro,   in  which seveial hundred  thousand dollars lwas_ expended  in   defeating the  proposed" prohibition   amendment lo  the     constitution.      Afterwards in  a,  published   interview  with  Co'.  U. S.  Ohev-er. he told the  methods  purs-nol  in purchasing space in new-pap-'is and  in influencing  voter-:.     Among  other  things,   he   said:     "We.   talked   high  license   all   the   time.    Never   try  to  defend the saloon, if so  you  lose the  influence of the church   members and  ministers, but Lalk about (he revenue,  cider, taxation,  anel  especially  prohibition don't prohibit,,  and   clamor  ror  high license."   This is now the method  pursued   everywhere   by   the    liquor  (raffic to. protect   the   business   fivm  being outlawed.    The' license  holders  protective   association   of   Canada  is  organized   with   plenty   of   funds   to  carry on a campaign along these line-,  The     most     unscrupulous    methods,  judging   fiom   past    history,   will   be  'reported tn in- order   to   misled   tbe  people.   The object, of  their  eli'orls is  not to  protect   the   nation   from   increased drunkenness-,  of   which   they  hypocritically     feign  a   fear,   but   to  protect     themselves   fiom   a   loss  eif  business which they know -would  certainly follow prohibitory law.     Tlieii  well-founded fears are among the bust  of evidences of lhe  lair  success  of a  prohibitory law.  - The quotation you give from an  English correspondent, does not indicate that he gives a fair statement of  the case in Norway, In that country  nearly all rural communities have,  been for many years under local prohibition and tho cities have had a  svslem of "brandy companies"' who, {  after paying nn interest on capital. J  paid surplus protits to Various pliil.in 1  thiopies. In lS'M only 2') places out-I  side of the cities licensed the trafllc. '  The results in Norway indicate tb:>r, \  in the cities under the. company's  systeuidninkenness steadily continues. \  but in the rural districts, containing j  two-thirds the population, under pro- ,  hibition. di unkenness has diminished, i  lb s lion Id be remembered^ thn/. as laie '_  7T^lSS3~riieT;e~iyefe"ii;721 ~llistiIIcTrie.s_fiT"f  Norway and the nation was fine of the \  mostdtunken in Europe. The appal- .  ling effects of intemp?r:ince aroused !  the Government to t:ike the steps of [  legislation above indicated. The :  result of such legislation was lately j  told in the London, Eng., Times by I  James Whyte ot the United Kingdom  alliance.    Lie says: j  "Sweden and Norway are no-  the -oherest countries  the  A   MONTE  CARLO  TRAGEDY.  An  Three Syutems   of  Growing ��������� The  Slngl*  Stem ..nincliiiiK Kyatoni.  Dahlias aro most satisfactorily grown  from roots, which can bo snfely planted  ���������when tho  danger  of  freezing  i.s over.  Thero nro   threo   distinct   systuins  of  growing, the host of which is tho singlu  litem branching system.    This method  docs nwuy with   lho  unsightly  stakes  nnd produces lino, symmetrical plants of  medium height. In athcrwords, a plant  growing 5 fuut high  tinder the old system of staking would grow but U 1-11 to  ���������1 fcut high under lho now .system and  product)  ninny moro llowcrs on  longer  stems.   To secure this result,, so soon as  tho sliootB appear  in  the spring all but  tho strongest  ones  should bo removed,  and the couter of this pinched ont. thus  causing ifc to brunch. By a repetition of  this pinching  as  tho  branches  appear  any number of branches can bo secured.  This mo-hod of "pinching back" is simply  assisting   uaturo   by  causing  tho  plants to branch  out  at  the surface of  tho ground instead  of ono or two feet  above, thus enabling them to withstand  tho severest storm without tlio  assistance of stakes, writes a  contributor to  The Orange Judd Farmer and authority  for tlio following:  To secure tho best results in dahlias  thorough cultivation is. necessary. The  sui'fauu of tho soil about tho plants must  not only bo kept scrupulously free from  weeds, but thoroughly stirrod afc all  time. This stirring of tho soil should  bo to a considerable dept^a-at first whilo  tbe plants aro small, thus'causing'thein  to root deeply and preventing too soft a  growth. As soon as they come into  bloom, however, all deep cultivation  should ceaso anel tho surfneo bo stirred  only to a depth of but ono to two  inches. As soon as tho .lowers begin to  grow smaller a top dressing of well rotted mauuro or any good fertilizer should  be applied to tho surface about the  pianls and carefully worked in.  Another subject on whicli there is a  diii'erenco of opinion among dahlia  growers is tho proper timo of planting  to secure the liuest blooms for exhibition purposes. It is a well known fact;  that roots or plants planted late, say  during July, will products larger flowers  durii~g_Scp.ember than thoso planted  earlier in the season, because the first  flowers produced by tlio plant aro always the largest and most perfect.  From experience in Now Jersey, bow-  ever, lho writer has found that dahlias  planted tho last of April to first of May  will bloom during Juno and continuously until killed by front; if properly cared  for. If exhibition flowers aro desired,  liowovor, these plants may be cut down  to tho ground any timo during July.  Tho roots will then afc onco send out  strong shoots, and tho same euro should  bo given tis if newly planted, aud tho  results will be equally satisfactory.  Incident   Whicli   Mado  Binuiarok   an  Inveterate Enemy to Gambling.  Prinqo Bismarck has long been an inveterate enemy to tho wholesale system  of gambling, which is "preserved," as  it were, at Monto Carlo and similar establishments on thu continent.  His antipathy is duo to a tragedy  which was enacted under his very eyes  at Baden Badon more than SO years  ago. During tho season at that placo,  which was of more .than average brilliancy, ho would himself go into ouo of  tho gambling saloons, wliich was frequented by tlio highest aristocracy and  tho members of the diplomatic corps.  All bough' ho played littlo ho would occasionally venture small sums. If lio  won, ho would vonturo his original  Muko again und again, but if ho lost at  the lirst coup ho retired from tho table.  (Jut! day whilo Bismarck was standing at a tablo a young nitin and a boau-  tiful woman camo in. Ilo was a baron  tun! had only recently married and was  on his wedding trip with his brido.

Tho beautiful woman by his  fido vainly strovo to tear him away.  The i'over of gambling had taken hold  si' his brain. The moro tlio woman bo-  sought, the moro the man ventured.  Hundreds of francs grew into.thousands,  and thousands after thousands wero  raked in by tho croupier.

At lust the gambler put a larger stako  than ever ou tho table, aud again ho  lost.  IIo rose and whispered a word to his  wifo, and they left tho room together.  Nobody iii a gambling saloon heeds  tho ruined man, and tho game went on  us before', less feverishly perhaps and  without such largo stares.  Suddenly, without a moment's warning, tho report of a pistol rang through  tho room. Some people hurried out.  There on tho ground lay the body of  tho ruined man, a bullet wound in bis  head, from which a thin stream of bloott  was flowing. By. tho side of tho body,  instructed, almost turned to stono by  the horrible situation, stood the beautiful young wifo, now a widow.  Suddenly bor restrained feelings ovcr-  cimio her, and with ono wild shriek sbo  fell by tho sido of tho dead man.

Hanaeer Revelstoke Brae _h  Had the man from Raccoon v.iilley  dropped a dynamite shell in thu rcdhof  stove, lit; could not have surprised tho  store more than ho did by tho purchase  of three glass pitchers. The store was  dunifoimded, but, always slow to evince  emotion of any kind, it said nothing  until the stranger hud taken a chair,  placed his hii.sketful of glassware at his  feet, lighted a penny cigar aud shown  his intention to linger awhile, providing ho found things pleasant.  Then tho man with the bushy whiskers who was lolling on the counter  shuffled his feet iu warning and at  length said, "I 'low you must drink a  heap of water up your way."  The storekeeper strolled around lrom  behind tho counter and, taking a post  with his back to the stove and his eyes  fastened on the transom over tho front  door, ventured in an indifferent way,  "Yes, you must drink aheap of wotter  to buy a dollar un a balf worth o"  pitchers at onct.''  The stranger grinned again.,'  _  "Perhaps he don't drink only water,"  came from tho man who was rooking on  a nail keg behind the stove. "  '  "They hain't fer wotter, but fer wed-  din presents," said the stranger.  "Mighty souls! A' triplo weddin!"  cried the storekeeper.' "Well, you uns  uz up in Raccoon valley do beat all!"  "This here petio'lar instance do beat  ail, I admit, V said the man who hailed  from that small but important part of  the state of Pennsylvania. "The. bluo  pitcher's fer Teacher Perry, tho green  un fcr Jakoy Wiugle, old Jawhu Wjn-  gle's sou; tho plain un'a fer Hen Harmon."  And the storo lifted up its voice in  ,oco grand'"Mighty souls!?' .,-..  The stranger rubbod his hand .through'  his long heard and grinned again. " -  "It's niiio milo to Raccoon walley.  It's kinder an oaten tho way, ahint tho  time "sort o' a'placet, an I've never ben,  there an don't know them as you uu  has spoken of," said tho man on tho  counter. "But you mowt tell us of it."  "Gwon !" cried tho rest of the gathering.  "I 'low if you don't know Teacher  Perry, or 'Jawhu Wiugle's son Jakcy,  or Hen Harmon, you uns mowfc o'.heard  o' Snuiro Kramer, ain't you?"  Tho store had not, and tho stranger  said, ."Mighty souls!" ,    -  Having thus expressed his surprise at  the ignorance about him, he continued:  "Well, net hevin heard o' Sepuro Kra-  uier, o'._coiu_o. you uns imin'.t heard o'.  his twins, Flory an Pet. Them was  girls! The pretties' in Raccoon walley,  or any other walley,.fer that matter���������  . 17 year old, 5 feot 8 inch high, weighin  a scant hundred an twelve pound, slim,  yeller, hair, inusklur. Hcd I bo'n a  younger man I might o' gono in the  light with Teacher Perry, Jakey Winglo  an Hen Harmon, but gettiu near to SO  as I am, .with a missus and seven littlo uns at home, I Iff tho fiel', to them,  an a high time thoy. an them twins lied  o' it. Ifc was a caso o' tho threo o' 'em  courtin the two o'.'eui, for if Teacher  Perry, or Jake Wi������gle, Jawhu Wiugle's  sou, or Hen Harmon' w'eut over to  Kramer's ho never set up with any  pete'lar twin, but Yvith whichever ho  seen iirsfc.- ������  "About corn cuttin time Teacher Perry goes over to Suuiro Kramer's, an ho  fcais, sais ho, 'Squiro, I waut one o'  your twin dotters.'  " 'Which un?' sais tho squiro.  "|I'veno idee,'sais Teacher Perrj-,  scratchin his head, kinder puzzled like.  "Jest then up conies Hen I-Iarmou au  Jako Wingle, JawJm Wiugle's .son.  ". 'Squire,' sais Jake, kinder flustered  like, fer fear tho teacher heel got ahead  o' him, 'mo an Hen each Yvauts one o'  'em twins.'  "Squiro Kramer, ho thot a piece, nn  then Eais, sais he: 'Boys, thcy's threo  o.'.you uns an two o',tho twins. Ono o'  you uns has got to git left. Which uu?'  - "The threo o' em kind o' looked foolish like, an Squire Kramer cast his eye  down over his 20 aero fiol'o' tall, straight  corn.  " 'Which an?' he asked ag'in after a  bit.  "Gittin no answer, ho says: 'Sea  yander fiel' o' corn? Well, I'll tell yon  what we'll do. We'll decide this hero  matter by a corn cuttin tournyment.  Tho two fellers thet cuts'tho most corn  in two hours' time kin have tho twins.  The one feller that cuts the most kin  hev the first pick atween Flory an Pet.'  "An so they agreed.  "Well, sirs, thefc thero corn cuttin  tournyment was the grandest thing I  ever seen. All the folks in the walley  knowed o' it an come to look ou. Thero  was fully 60 buggies hitched along the  fenco when tho squiro givo tbe word an  Teacher Perry an Jako Wingle an Hen  Harmon fell to cuttin. Have seen a  heap o' corn cut in my day, bnt I never  ���������een  the J beat o'  the way them  boys  made tbo knives go slashin th'oo tbe  stalks. Each on 'cm bed a feller follyin  him with a couple o' fresh knives, an  up in ono, corner o' tho fiel' tho squiro's  hircliu's was a-lmzzin tho grindstone  sliurpin blades. Thu corn suomed to fall  down, bluilo after blixlo liko, au what  Willi tho swish o' the knives an tho  orack,_crack o' the stalks an the yellin  o' the Raccoon wallny folks a-sickin ou  the teacher an Jaku Wingle an Hen Harmon it was most oxcitin. They took six  rows apiocct at u timo, au it weren't  long before Teacher Perry, who's most  ns good a corn cutter as ho is a speller,  got a shock ahead o' thu others. Then  he slashed his leg an lost threo shocks  whilu it was boin tied up, Jnkn Wingle  won thu lead, an he'd 'a' kept it, too,  only ho got onu hand mixed up in the  leaves an took oil' two lingers. That  th'owed him ahint, so fer tliet when  timo was called ho was full eight shock  short o' the teacher, who come in second.  "You. should 'a' heard tho cheorin  when young Ifarniou stuck his kuifo  iutor a pumpkin un walked up to where  tho squire an Flory an Pet was standiu.  " 'Woll, Hen,' says the squiro, hiuil-  in, 'which un does you want?'  Thefc kinder slumped Hon Hnrinon.  IIo looked at Flory, then at Pet, thou at  Flory ag'in.  ��������� "'Why, I hain't tho't o' thefc,'ho  snis, wtis he. 'Really, I hain't an idee.''  Then ho kinder blushed a leetle. 'I've  been sutlin up with both,' ho sais.   -,  "This hero was a hitch 'et hodn't  been allowed fer. Hen certainly bed a  right to pick, but ez he couldn't make  up his mind jest which tin ho wanted it  looked ex though they'd ho some delay.  But the squire, he's a cute man���������au  onusual cute mail.  ' Girls,' ho snis, turuin to Pet an  Flory, 'Hen Harmon was won tho right  to tho host o' ye. Supposin you uns decide which un's tho hest by huskiu thot  corn.' '  ."  "Then tho walley folks all cheered,  an the girls agreed, an tho' the corn  was a leetle green, yet they set right  down, each at a shock, au begin what  bo all odds was" tlio' grandest thing I  ever look at. To toll tho truth, !thoy  wasn't, much to seo after all, nothin-  bnt kind o' cloud, o' flyiu husks, with  nn occasional glimpso o' red calico iu  thu . middle. Thoy finished tho first  sheck even���������dead even���������an run' to another, tored ifc down, jumped into, tho"  niiddloau afc it ag'in. Afc tho sixth  shock Pet; yelled for a now huskiu pin,  for ' she'd wored hers clear out. The  sixth was finished even, an they was  half an hour loft. Tho twins were kinder winded, an tho crowd was winded,  too,' from yellin an sickin 'em on. The  tournyment was finished in silence, except fer tho rattle o' the husks. Jest as  Ihe squire yelled the cud i' the hour  Pet and Flory gits up together, each  with her fifteenth shock. An when they  hearn tho yells an knowed it was over,  an over even, they both jisfc dropped.  Ez luck woud hev it, Pet fell plump  into Hen Harmon's arms, "an'iiogives a  whoop an picks her up an runs across  the fiel' an throws her inter liis buggy  an starts olf fer the preacher's. . Flory  i'ell inter Teacher Perry's arms, an he  put her inter his buckboard an licked  up his horse."  "An what became o' Jawhn Wingle's  sou?" asked the storekeeper, for tho man  from Raccoon' valley had paused for  want of brcuUi.  "Jako Wingle, you mean? Why, he  wont to the preacher's with Etfcio Bumble, who'd been niirsin his lamo hand  durin the huskin tournyment."���������St.  Louis Republic.  A Picture of China Today.

WOULD    YOU    INVEST  MONEY   PROFITABLY?  If So Come to Revelstoke the Mining  Centre of North Kootenay   - . -   -   -  It has been predicted by lea diner men of Canada that Revelstoke will  be one of the loading cities of West Kootenay. That its unique position  where the C, P. R. crosses the beautiful Columbia valley, with water transportation co the north and south and in close proximity to tbe richest mines  in Kootenay, making its location unusually favorable. If yon want to invest  your money in manufactories, real estate, or mining property, visit  Revelstoke, the "Gateway to the Kootenay."  We are moving to the front and no obstacle will or can impede onr  wonderful progress. Do not forget tbat, you will never buy real estate aa  cheap as you can buy it toelay. Figure the increase of the past and speculate  in Revelstoko, the "Gateway to the Kootenay." -������������������ -  '  The banks of the* Columbia, on wliich river the town is situated, have  been the stage upon which strange scenes have been displayed and wild and  darinir exploits performed by the thousands who entered tliis district during;  lhe '07 gold boom in the Big Bend. - .(  Revelstoke.is probably one of the oldest towns In the interior.   And it  was not until this title question  was settled that Revelstoko really began to  forgo ahead, commercially and otherwise.   Growth was slow until  1897, but  the old timers and newcomers had great confidence in the~town and smarted in '  lo make it a mining centre worthy of note. ' ,   .'  The C. P. It. is concentrating all its. principal-woikshops on tbe  western division at Revelstoke. Revelstoke is not only a'niining town, but is  now and will be increasingly so in the future a railwav point of considerable  importance in the C. P. R. system and a distributing centre for the business of  ihe rich mining districts included in the section popularly known as North  Kootenay. Ils importance in these connections is due'to its unique geographical position. Seated in a beautiful open valley at the point of intersection .  of the Columbia river and the C. P. il. main line, it commands the passen  l uniting north and smith, to the famous gold fields of the Big Bend and'the  tich mineral lead.1" of the Lardeau. whiie on the east np the Illecillewaet  another district of great prospect is being oppned up. T'le town is the point  of junction-of the main line and thi. Arrowhead'bran'ch of the C. P. R., hy.*-  which access is gained to the South Kootenay by rail and steamer. Another  line of steamers will make Revelstoke their starting point for the Big Bend.'  for which couutry it is afc piesent the .sole outfitting point and base nf supplies.  Thus by the mere force of geographical position Alone Revelstoke has forged  to tbe front until the little.nuning camp of a few yearn'agd has become a town  of considerable importance to the business of lhe province;  The mining industry i6 still in its infancy, but with the careful expenditure of capital in development work will grow to laige dimensions." ,-  Large aieas of land  in close proximity,to _ the town are covered with";  limber suitable for lumber,'but probably just as' valuable as fire wood, there?  being no coal deposits discovered near at hand as yet. * Tliis land when cleared  is proving to  be exceptionally fine farming and gardening land,   and  the-  demand for produce is always many times larger than the supply, train loads  beinfy imported from other points every season.   This,should be taken into  consideration by intending settlers. ' , j.  /'  ' * ',   "'.  Across the river from Revelstoke an excellent cliy_ exists for the making of brick in vast e-uantities. wdiich commands a high price at any,time.  .The  town envoys  many advantages:, A   fine,   healthy   climate���������the  death rati* being exceedingly low���������good watei'.'supplied by a system of water  works, from  the mountain side just north of the town, underlying which is a'  stintum of gravel that ensures a natural drainage.
