BOER HEAD LAAGER STORMED  K  Lady Sarah Wilson at  Last   Heard of.  ���������Fresh Fighting on tne Modder River.  ���������Disaster to   Gen.   Gatacre's Column  at   Stormburg. ��������� Six   Hundred   Men  Captured and Two Guns Lost.  [Special' to tiik H_itA_Dj.  i London, Dec. 12���������Later details show-  that but for the magnificent work of  the artillery, tho disaster to General  Gatacre's column would hnve been far  more extensive. After marching 10  hours they attacked the wrong part of  the Boer - position. The Boer force  numbered GO0O instead of 2500 ns the  British were led to believe. The British troops were practically ambushed  by treacherous guides.  .Modder River, Dec. 11���������Hostilities  were resumed today. The British  opened flre with lyddite shells. The  Boers replied with a dozen guns.  The latters guns were silenced after  hours of fighting. The lyddite shells  did great execution raising the earth  in dense brown clouds. It is not  known what damage was done tn the  enemy. The Boers occupied a position  at Magersfontein near Spyfontoin.  Lord Durham formerly "a Lieutenant  in the Coldstream Guards said today  that Gen. Gntacre overworked his  troops in the Soudan, and was not fit  to have command in South Africa.  London. Dec 12.���������No further news  has been received to remove the mystery overhanging Gen'l Gatacre's retreat from Stormberg. It is exceedingly probable he vvill be compelled  to retire on Qiieen������tnvv-n und to wait  , reinforcements, which .can hardly  reach him until Sir Charles Warren's  division arrives at thc Cape. The first  detachment sails on Saturday next.  Even if Gen. French is not compelled  to retreat he vvill be obliged to pause  in his advance. It now seems certain  .that lhe seventh division, which is being mobilized at Aldershot. will iilsobo  sent to Smith 'Africa. No, news has  "vet been received, confirming the, report, of the Boers' cuptui"e of 50 prison-  ers.from Methuen's column.  It is just tvvo months since the Transvaal ultimatum, was received.. There,  lihve'been nine engagements  nnd' the  British' have' lost"56C.killed, 2027 vvouii-  , ded, and 1077 mining or prisoneis.  '   "Capetown. Dec. 12.���������It is  announced that  the Boers hnve  succeeded in  repairing the bridge  between' Stormberg and Bnrgersdoi p. which the.Brit-,  , ish succeeded in   destroying  on  retiring." " - .      "  Regarding.-", recent paragraph in the  "war cahies."stating that, lhe* Canadian  battalion had gone to the I'i out lo act  'in com ert with the Black Watch 'and*  Seufoith Highlanders,  it'is, sminit-rd  that lhey have formed the third   hi-ig-  - ude of the 1st division in-place, of the  1st battalion of "the. Argle and   Suth-  , win ml Highlanders', which was hurriedly pushed fi.fvvaiil and an ived just  in time tor the action at Modder River.  The 'afternoon papeis withheld - the  apportionment nf the blame until more  fni Is aie at hand.  Pretoria -Dec. 12.���������Six ��������� hundie'd  seventy two British prisoneis were tat  ken at Stormberg. In the fighting a-  Modder River vestei day evening. Cronje maintained his position and captured fifty British soldiers.  , London, Dec. 11.���������The-War oHli-o  publishes the following despatch from  Gen. Walker at Capetown: "Gatacre  reports that he deeply regrets to inform you that lie met" with a serious  reverse in the attack on Stormberg.  -He wis misled ns to the enemy's  position by the guides' and found the  ground impracticable. - The casualties  so far .as known at present aie:  Second  battalion  Royal  Iiish Rifles,  ��������� wounded; 'Lieut. Col. Fayer, Major  Seaton, Capts. Bell and Kelly. Lieuts.  Stephens'and P.irtardston; Suffolk  regiment, wounded -second Lieut.  Ma_ynard a_nd^ 12_ men; missing   Capt.  ���������Weif-T-Lieiitr-Christier-second���������Lieut."  Rodney and men: 74lh Field Battery,  severely wounded   Lieut. Lewis and  three men missing,  slightly  wounded  - two.  77th Field Battery killed one gunner,  ���������'-wounded Major Percival; Northumberland Fusiliers' missing. Major  Stevens, Cupt.-Fletfher, Capt Morley,  Second Lieut. Wake, Second Lieut.  Coulso, Lieut. Radcliffe and _ three  hundred and six non-commissioned  officers and men; Royal Berkshire  regiment, one private killed. -The remainder will be wired as soon as  ascertained.  Gen. Gatacre. who left Peltier  Kraal yesterday at noon with a force  of over 4,000 men. made ,n successful  march, arriving within two miles of  his destination at half past eleven,  when suddenly a terrific fire opened  simultaneously on the British right  Hank. The Royal Irish Rifles, who  formed tho ndvance, sought shelter  behind a neighboring kopje and were  joined by"tliu remniiicder of the column. It was soon found, however,  that tho position was discovered by  Boer guns which were moro powerful  than was expected. * The troops  therefore sought a safer position about  a mile away; tvvo batteries in the  meantime engaging the Boers and  covering the troops in their withdrawal. The action now became very  keen at long range and a detachment  cf mounted infantry moved northward  with a view of being able to get on  the enemy's tight flank. Suddenly a  strong command was seen moving  from the north and tho Irish Rifles  and the Northumberland regiment  were sent out to meet it. It vvas soon  discovered thnt the Boers had their  machine guns well placed . and lhe  Boers were compelled to face the  terrible fire. Ifc was impossible to  hold the position in face of uu enemy  apparently superior in position,  numbers nnd artillery. The British  retired to Molteno, the Boers followed  np closely, biiiigiug two guns to bear  on the retiring column. It is believed  that'the British casualties wero not  serious in making their escape, but  mi the whole about COO troops aro  missing besides some killed. It is  regarded as the most serious reverse  of the campaign and will cause the  Dutch in Capo Colony to rise. Gen.  Gatacre's idea was to ascertain tlie  strength of tho position of the Boers,  vvho were strongly entrenched along  thc Htm inbei-g range.  ��������� im imi rjl"������������������������������������*���������������������������������  is Page j  Mscers Welcome  We want it clearly understood that our holiday displays and attractions are for all who wish to enjoy them, and those who  come to see are just as welcome as those who come to buy.

Tliey reached'1,  the crest without being discoveredand"  drove off the enemy and then destroyed the howitzer with gun -  cotton. When returning, Metcalfe "  found liis retirement' barred by the -  Boers, but he forced his way through, \  using the bayonets freely. The Boer.',  losses were considerable. The British'  losses were: Lieut. Ferguson and II ���������  men killed; Capt.

The price at which the  goods are   imported   is   higher,   anil  the higher the price, the higher the  dutv.      Then  the  importer and   ^hu  retailer   have   to   make    their   profit  out ot the money paid into the customs house, as well as on the money  sent to the factory abroad.    Let u������.  in considering  the  gloving  accounts  which we read of the "growing time"  as shown by the  trade returns, l*"fir  in  mind that so far  as  last y ")���������".-  is  concerned,   the   growth  is   main,    'n  the value of the import*., and trii is  ' due  not to  the  increased   purchases,  hut to higher prices.      Let it      '. ic  forgotten that when the  minister ot  finance boasts of his increased  ne from customs he is after all ouly  boasting that he  is    able    to  get   a  larger amount  of taxes  out  of  eacit  yard of cloth, or each pound of meat,  "or each article o������ cloi^i-.g.  of itself  does not behave well. Without  touching on all the questionable  shades and degrees of human conduc.  which are more or less Injurious to  society, some phases of behavior are  palpably had, and must be dealt with  In some fashion, elso the body politic expires.  Soeietv's early method was a promp.  excision of the part affected. Was  there a criminal Oft with his head!  This, system was simple, cheap and  easy; but after centuries of praoliir  it. has dawned upon society that  criminality is much like a beard���������it  grows hy shaving.  Various depilatories have been recommended and applied, hut. the crop  reappears constantly.  All this whilo society took the  criminal ns a dispensation of Provld-  enco and never questioned but that .v  mttst exist. Today, this ancient assumption totters visibly: wc gaze askance about our criminal class, and  begin to wonder where it come. Trom  ���������what makes It.  Some thought has been givim to  cutting off the line of individual criminals. That does not. work. Crlnr*  is not hereditary in thnt sense an;,  degree. There aro not in the worn,  merely certain strains of crin-lnn  Wood which, being eliminated, nil  would go well. ,  Then society, com me still '���������'���������;���������������  nwake, begins to perceive: that hum  anitv���������just common, average * "nan ���������  uV-lresponds to certain condition.  "-ith astonishing regularity of result  that children-good, ordinary aver  age children-Hems ���������*W*ei 1������ '������V  tain conditions, physical, ment.. ,  moral, social, become exactly ** hat  mlEht havo been expected. An occasional hero resists the conditions tor  a time; but a few generations of it  reduce that rare exception to the ru e.  Certain conditions produce cnmintilo.  Society is now on the right frank.  It has learned that social disease only  requires other treatment than shaving.  What conditions produce criminals?  How can we remove the conditions  and so exterminate the crop of enm-  m While wc are studying those specific  conditions" which develop criminals,  and how on the one hand to eliminate  the conditions, and on tho other to  strengthen the residence of the individual, one thing we can do now. W e  can seize upon every chilc^ now horn  in the surroundings which vve know-  to' be crimo producing and sublet  him to years of child gardening.  We have plain proof in gat acred  facts ot the reduction in criminality,  which throe or four years of kindergarten training gives, and the objection made bv parents to "compulsory  education" at a later age does not  hold in babyhood. , ���������  Mr. Horace Fletcher is preaching  this movement, and the good sense of  tho country ought to help it along-  The saving in money alone,ought  to appeal to the most sordid. Crimim!:-  aro a serious pecuniary loss to the  State. We should offer a reward for  their extermination, as we do for that  of the thistle.  cl tho hest wo have seen in such  short compass and is all the more  i.leasing coming from across the line:  Six principal points are involved in  ihe arbitrament precipitated by the  formal declaration of war by the Boer  government.     They are:  1.   Taxation without representation.  The British government demanded fo'-  B--itish  subjects  that this  should  be  rectified.     The Boers finally made the  concession that five years of residence  rnd the oath o������ allegiance to thc TCocr  republic should entitle    an outlandov  to vote.      But this    concession    was  placed  under limitations which prac  tii ally  nullified  it.      It was    not  an  honest offer.      The Imperial  government demanded a five year limit to  1'Olitical   incompetency,   and  that the  ballot should not he subjected to any  nrllifylng conditions. This the Boers  lefuscd, unless thc Imperial    government should renounce suzerainty. The  Ial ter refused to discuss tliat question  and    the Boers    then    withdrew    the  offer.  2. Trial hy jury. British sufilecti |  .ve not allowed a trial hy a jurv of  iheir peers, as under the laws ot fi 1  F-.gllsh spoakins": people. A Hr.t*.*..  subject under thc Boer oligarchy  must bo tried hy a jury of Boers.  S-i Kducatiou. In tho public  relools the English language is no",  pllowcd. As tho population of Jn-  h. imcsbnrg Is twenty English to one  io"r this was a virtual exclusion of  English children from tlm schools.  Tho imperial government Hemandrf  -.n behalf of British subjects, that  the two lnnguaires should stand on an  (���������'quality���������English speakers to have  m.p same henelils as those exclusively  p.'ivon to  the  Dutch.      This was   re-  fured. .       rri,-,.n  31. Municipal government. I heie  are only about 1,000 Boers In Johannesburg to 23-1,000 outlandcrs.   lhe  To lind a parallel in recent Bn>  ish military history lo General Lor I  Methuen's brilliant advance for the  relief   of   Kimbeney   one   must   turn  h    to  1880.  iksii K������.^Bi'ii-.a������  ��������� / :  t ��������� i->   ? i 4  *"< V   *^  ;���������  In  that year  General  Lord  Robe.is,  with a force of 10,000 men,  made    a  march through a difiicult and trying  country,   against  loes   who,   like   the  Boers, preierred to llgnt lrom strom;  and rocKy positions,  out    who werj  not a wait backward in making headlong charges when  lhe    opportuni' ,-  seemed   favorable,    ugriust    Uritish  bayonets  and  guns.    Day  after  day  Roberts continued his march, in    i!s  progress inflicting upo the loe defeat  after defeat, and finally raising    the  siege of Candahar anu rescuing    its  garrison,  including the remnant of a  force,    which,    under    Major-General  Burroughs, had met  A-ilh disaster at  Waivvanda.   There xxa3 v.ue dlltcrence  between   tho    exploits    of    the  two  forces.   In   the   latter case Britain and  the empire learns  from  day to day  how.   General     Methuer.     is    getting  along. In the former' case Lord Rob-  ens was without railway    or    tei";  graphic communication, and  after his  march was fairly commenced Britain  had  no news  of  him  for    day   after  day.-    Over   two  weeks  wero  passed  In   dreadful   suspense,   r.nd   then   tho  empire  awoke   to  read  with  feeling's  of pride and joy that llrberts was in  Candahar, and that eruc-1 and treacherous   loes   had     received     salutary  punishment for wrongs upon British  subjects.  So  today  the people  ot  the  qu:eu  the world over will Toad of the "bailie  river, following as it does upou tw>  previously  hard  fought engagements,  and will feel that the British  army  of  today   is    the    samj    as   of   ola.  The batte is  the best answer to  the  abuse  which  foreign  critics have^far  years past thrown at Uie army. Tacy  havo   derided   the    army    in   season  and out���������condemned it as heing composed of degenerates, ot weedy-chested   undersized    men    and    ignorant  ollicers.      "An    army     fit    to   fight  savages  only'" 'has   beeu   their    cry;  forgetting  their  own   army,   particularly the case of France, Russia and  Germany, have had  even little    experience  even  in  that kind  of war-  far, and are* superior to British only  on paper.   Britain's wars with  senu-  civilized people were said to have unfitted   her  for   more    serious    wotlt.  Glencoe,   Eland's    Laagte,     Belmont  and Gras Pan were  tlif.  first replies  to a supposition too readily assumed:  Modder Rived  should settle    the  argument.

Thus it will be Eecn that'the average  is about 25 or 30 feet, and alio roper  who can throw anywhere near 50  feet with accuracy is a rarity. In  California they sometimeb use a rope  as long as 65 feet, bul there thev  teem to have a habit of throwing an  snormoulsy largo loop���������much larger  than is really necessary. ln actual  work, however, it will be found that  a. man's hand is not largo enough  properly to hold much more than 40  feet of rope when it is rolled read/  to   throw.  The lasso is a creation of ja ce '-  tain environment and need. Its place  is onjthe broad prairies and grazing  lands and its chief utility lies in the  stock business. It is almost nself'34  in wooded country ,by reason of the  obstruclions anorded by brancbLh  and bushes. Thc finest lassos are of  rawhide, cut into tnm strips and  braided, six ply, into a rope thr -0-  eights to oue half inch in ^diameter.  They are quite expensive a good '40  foot rope costing aboul $7. On this  account of late years hard-twisted  grass rope is used, but the raw-hid.>.  rope is..the best in ihcwiud, as it ia  heavier and when illleil with oil it i**  not ait'cctod uy wei weathor. A  braided rope also has .less tendency  to kink than twisted rope. Cowboys  have a mixture ot lard and beeswa*  with which ihey dress their hem.i  or linen ropes to keep out dampness,  and also to prevent tlicm from getting loo .dry. The most celebrated  of the genuine "riatus" are made in  Chicago, which produces an article  much superior to the rougher ones  turned out in .Mexico.  There arc three goneral methods of  throwing with many minor varlatiot s  of individual habit. The rope :s  held in practically the same way in  each case. First is the plain, straight  cast, the nooze swinging above the  head from left to right by a rou'i-  ing wiist movement. Some "ropers"  throw a small loop, hard and fast,  almost at a level; others a larger,  kind, which, nevertheless "arrives."  For myaelf, I favor a small loop  thrown hard, as it seems the best all-  round style, most effective against  the wind or other adverse condition:!.  The aim is somewhat to the, right  of the object to be roped���������say a foo',  and a half on a "io foot throw, the  exact moment of release beging governed by the weight of the rope.wir.d,  velocity of swing, etc. Judgment  comes.instinctively with swingDLUY  comes" instinctively with praci.l. *.  The rest of the ropa'/ic held coilea  in the other hand and released ?������.  fast as -desired, tvvo or three coil*  being retained.  To "snub" the rope (wind it above  the pommel alier casting) in the instant of time allowed is a. tries  quite aB difficult as throwing proper-:  ly. The Mexicans, .with their larger  diameter pommels, have to take only  one turn; thc American pommels,  being smaller, require two. The pommel often smokes from, the frictim  created, and is" frequently deeply  grooved-and almost burned by the  rope. The important part played by  the trained Icowpony is obvious. He  is taught to ��������� settle back on - his  haunches, the instant the rope begin"  to tighten arid in' many other ways  assists his master materially.  The' second method of throwing is  exactly the reverse���������that is, the noose  is swung from right to left above the"  head before releasing.. This is'call.'d.  the "California throw" and possibly  gives a little greater iange. * At any  rate, one or two of the longest  throwers I know use. it and I find i:  so myself. It may be only a personal  result. Any good "roper" can  throw  eitner way." ���������       , ,-  The third is the ''corral drag'  'which, as its name indicates, is for  use afoot and" in confined , quarter.  It consists in trailing out the loop  .on the ground behind one*and snapping it forward by an underhand  motion.  The lasso's greatest effectiveness i-  a weapon is when the wielder is  mounted. When both adversaries aie  afoot the value is very slight. With  cattle and horses it is a different  thing. The whole esscnee of the  thing is to tighten me noose around  an opponent with a Jerk sufficient to,  dismount him or, take * him off his  feet. To that end you may ride past  him swiltly, or if pursuing him stop  your horse suddenly. Or, if he is stationary, and you cannot ride -past  him, you can wheel your horse and  retire after a successful cast. In  lassoing a man, if don? skillfully, the  instant of time -is too brief .for him  ~either-to~thro w--ofr���������** the���������tightening-  noose or cut it. And it is'one of the  most deceptive things to attempt'"to  dodge. * - . -  - It is possible to control.the nooss  of a rope by the remainder of i.ttubit  of _a lasso ,by thc remainder of the  rope but it is a dexterity which few  - acquire in years. Th? finest roper I  know, Vincente Oropesa, champion of  Old Mexico, can do this to perfection,  and his performance is one of .the  ablest in that interesting exposition  of plalnsmanship. Oropesa j, is an  enthusiast. One of the Mexicans  once, told me, that . one night. tua  champion dreamed of a new cast aud  at once got up and went out scantily clad, and in half an hour had  mastered it.  An English Visw.  London Times: It is impossible 4o  t glance through the Canadian newspapers without realizing that Imperial unity Is a present fact, deeply  rooted and warmly cherished in the  hearts of the Canadian people, not  merely an idea or inspiration fostered by���������a handful of enthusiastic imperialists or championed by a single  political party. The immense interest  taken in the progress of the boei  war by the Canadian people as a  whole is evident by the great space  and numerous illustrations devo'.ed  to the subject in their press. A  copy of the Montreal Star (Conservative) now before us, dated Saturday,  October 21, contains as many as 47  columns of letterpress and illustrations, all bearing on one phase or  another of" the Transvaal question,  and including articles on ��������� Officers of  the Hour" and "Balloons in War." us  ���������roll as a "Boer Glossary." A uritish  ensign floating across three columns  bears tho inscription "Canada to the  Empire" and .heads a handsome list  of subscriptions for the men (and  their dependent relations) who have  Joined the Canadian Transv.vil contingent; while the heading 'Britons  Struggle for Equal Rights Against  Kruger's Stubborn Burghers" stretches across two whole pages,   'Hip loss  sensational, but equally loyal, Montreal Witness (Liberal) on *he ame  day had 25 columns of war matter,  including an almost full page leap:  and it may be noted that this journal  urgently demands that the lede.-al  parliament shall not allow the cost ct  maintaining tho Canadian contingent in the field to fall upon tbe  mother country. The Toronto blobe  (Liberal) the leading Govninicnl .-  gan in English-speaking Ontario, remarks, in the same strain, "Eventually we must i take our share in the  burden of responsibility tor the nuiiv-  tenance of the Empire," and r.dls  that ."perhaps   the,time   lias   come."  It is quite evident that the eyes of  our follow subjects in North America  are riveted on South Africa. i.or  are we loft ln any doubt as to the  nature of the interest thus keenlj e*v-  cited; - it is sympathetic and evui  enthusiastic for the British cause.  This more than friendly attitude is  evidently not .dictated by any be'.!>-f  that Canadian interests are direclly  involved in the affairs of South  Xfrica. Indeed a belief that tln-y  are not so involved lay at the root ot  that lukewarmness witti which i  certain section of the Canadian public at first greeted the suggestian  that the ..Dominion should volunteer  to help in the enforcement ol tho  Imperial government's policy. 'Ihe  present and well nigh universal iee'-  lng seems to be not only that tho  British quarrel Is a righteous one.  and not merely that Canada woti'd  be unchlvalrous lo stand abide while  wo,'were struggling to .������������������ n?er on  South Africa the just government nnel  equal rights which Canada lias 1'iir  enjoyed, but that the Brti.t__.ii empire  is an organic whole, that, the inui-  ests of ono part aro the interests of  all, and that a blow divide at the  South African branch of the lmp< rial  family is one which every other  branch of that family is hound In ils  own interest to resist.  It is unfortunate at such a lime,  that any Canadian politi:::ans sh/uld  have attempted to exalt liieir ��������� \*n  loyalty hy throwing suspicion on tno  loyalty of their opponents; and it  is still more deplorable that some  British enthusiasts should have made  this the occasion for attacks on tl.cir  French fellow-countrymen. These  attacks, happily, havo been reprobated by the more sober writers and  speakers in the ranks of the Co i-  servatlvo opposition, as well as hy  the English-speaking Liberals. Tlie  Montreal Gazette, (after condemning the burning in effigy of Mr.Trri..  ���������who was credited, or l^bited, with  the supposed reluctance of- Sir Wilfrid Laurier's government to send a  Canadian contingent to tho Transvttii  ���������refers with earnest appreciation to  "the dignified attitude of Uie great  majority of the province's public m ,,i  who accept the formation and sending ot the contingent as they would  the performance of any other nai'on-  al" obligation.1' ��������� And the Witness,  which has always been looked on cy  French Canadians as thc head und  front of all opposition lo .French nud  Catholic ideas in the province of-  Quebec,.takes up the cudgels fur ils  old opponents in an equally generous spirit. "Sir Wilfrid Laurier  the writer says, "is the first Cauadi-ia  permier who has dared to give or  even propose, Canadian railitarv "assistance to Great Brilain. * He was  able to do this becauso he ."Was .1  Frenchman, and iknew hat ho could  speak for the descendants of thc  Queen's first Canadian subject?.  . .' . It is an unpardonable wickedness to rebuff the loyalty ol our fellow-subjects! ' by contemptuous ; '"-  sumptions that they. are disloyal.  They cannot be expected to share our.  Anglo-Saxon enthusiasm, it would  be brutal to demand it of them." They  are as .loyal to the .Queen and _.li*~  empire as such ill conditioned talkers  as" a.' certain exuberant gentleman  "will allow them to be." .- .  The aspersions to which we ha.-e  referred have had at least one goo.'  effect. They have drawn from, the  spokesman of the French-Canadian  race a very emphatic repudiation ���������*  any "French Canadian antipathy lo  imperial' unity," and numerous declarations���������not.indeed made, now for  the first time���������of sincere loyalty t'j  the British crown. It,is oafe to say-  that the participation���������made possii.ie  by the warm Imperialism of the Ca_ '  adlan people���������of Canadian troop- in  the**present war will^in turn appreciably increase the warmth of imperii '.-  ism in French and English Canada  alike.    ���������  -   : o���������:   We lack will more often than we  do strength.

Birds of all kinds are well represented in millinery, but the pigeon and  sea gull are quite the most stylish of  al1, and especially with chinchilla,  which forms many a pretty winter  hat.  For touques and turbans tipped well  over tho eyes were the prominent  variety ot hat worn at the New York  Horse Show, and chinchilla and sable  were the favorite furs.

Widowers are especially prone lo murder, Incest, fa'ie  accusation and falso witness. Thoy  stand first in all classes ot crime n:ni  their offenses against property are  noteworthy. In. extenuation of widowers It may he claimed that the loss  of the wife leads to demoralization  both in mind and in domestic affair*,  and romovos nu influence that is evidently salutary in the majority of  men. According to these slati-Klns  the longer a man is married the more  law-abiding he becomes. This mav he  accounted for not only by the benign  influence of matrimony, but also by the  fact that the burden ot married life  incident for the larger birthrate at  tnat time and the financial ftralts of  the parents is greater in the earlier  years than it is later. This Is Indicated by the fact that the rate of  offences against property falls oft rapidly with advancing yeart, among the  married.  8J_?

According to Bradstreet's Melbourne  correspondent the wheat production  of "Australia this year- will reach 10,-  000,000 bushels, the exportable surplus  being fully 20,000,000 bushels,-without  taking into account New Zealand's  crop, from which" a large 'quantity  will he left over for export. Can-Ida's  wheat production is also increasing  rapidly. With any kind of decent  encouragement these two colonies  vvouid, within a very few years, produce sufficient wheat to supply- the  needs of Great Britain and Ire'and.  According to Bradstreet's correspondent tho commonwealth of Australia.  b:ds fair to be established amid exceptionally prosperous conditions.  Gold production is rapidly increasing.  Tho estimate is made that this year's  production vvill easily aggregate $. V  000,000, a sum, 'which, owing to thc  check to the Transvaal's production,  might give Australia first' place in  production -this.'., year.. ..The. _-���������*. wool  growers, aside from those located in  the drought stricken districts, are  reaping important benefits from the  advance in prices shown during ,*he  present year. It is estimated, ln fact,  that the "total value of the Australian  crop will run at least* 40 per _snt  higher than that "of the preceding  year. As soon as the war is over and  South Africa is consolidated into a  British dominion it will be in ordtr  for the three big colonial confederacies to get together and insist on the  adoption of an Imperial policy of  pome sort. ,The influence which the  Dominion of Canada, the- commonwealth of Australia and the Dominion  ct South Africa will wield in the  affairs of tho Empire will be quite an  appreciable quantity. The next few  years will be memorable ones in .ho  ovelopment of Imperial unity.   o���������������������������  MATRIMONY  AND CRIME.      -  F. Prinzing has contributed a =��������� itis-  tical Etudy of the subject. According,  to this study, property rights are moro  generally respected by the married  than the single. The married man  does not commit the graver offenses  against property, such as robbery and  fraud, so much as the less dangerum  crimes, such as receiving stolen goods,  breaking the laws of trade and public  health and bankruptcy. Men who aro  married at an early age (from 1!) to  2?) offend against property mor^ often  than the unmarried of the same age.  This is explained by the pressure  of family expenses. Offenses agiinst  morality, except of course, Msaniy.  and, for some reason, incest are tar,  more common among unmarried men  ���������a fact tliat was to he expected. Offenses against human life Me rn.^rc  frt-quent among the - unmarried,  though the disproportion is not so  gieat as in the mattter of the rights  of property.  It is. interesting to note that thr  criminality of widowers dccr*~~"-_s  w'th advancing years, although this ;s  p'-obably true of all men. Wickr* its.  however, contribute a greater share  of crime between the ages of 39 ond  50 than either of the other ' o'as. s.

It ia mentioned by^Burke that John  Methven  df Mishop's Cannings'Wil "o,  ���������held a high position of aia^o m v.ie  reigns of William and Queen Anno;  also that the 'ancient family of Methuen is'stated to have taken its name  from  the  Barony -   of    Methven    in  .ffcrthshire.     If  under  these  circumstances Lord Methuen is a Scotchman  I am  quite willing' to be called    a  Dutchman."     .      .���������-.������.-  '.

The-founder of the family  is  described   in    "Who's  Who?"   n-f-  "John Methuen, Lord    Chancellor of  Ireland, whose  name, was igiven    to  a well known treaty with Portugal."  This is no doubt the Eame John Methuen,   or  Methven,    mentioned " by  Burke, .and  referred  to* by  our  correspondent as being ot Bishop's Cannings, Wilts. What -ras Lord Meth-  ven's   Original *��������� nationality    is   hard  to say.

A'committee of 12 was  selected to meet again on AVednesday  niglit and make iirriingemcnts to get  up a first-class entertainment under  the a.ispices of the rifle dhmpany.  Evervbody in tovvn should lend a hand  to make this affair an enoimous  success.  NOTE AND COMMENT  People are asking how it is that no  effort was made to clear the sidewalks |  of snow, when good advantage could  hnve been taken of the thaw to do so  on   Friday  or  Saturday.     One man  vvith a shovel and scraper, could havo  easily pushed  it all off the sidewalk  from end to end in a day's work and a  horse with an improvised snow shovel  could have cleared it away in  half an  hour.     A lit tie foresight and promptitude   displayed   on   Saturday   would  have given Revelstoke bare sidewalks  on   whicli to enjoy  the open   air on  Sunday.   As  it was the walking on  the sidewalk  through the slush was  awful   and   the   middle of   the   road  afforded the best going.   Such neglect  is    discreditable   and   the   hoard   of  works   should   at   once   devise   some  means of taking prompt advantage of  the next spell of soft weather and give  standing orders to  their foreman to  put it into application without hesitation on the next opportunity.  There is no doubt that somebody  blundered badly over that Douglas  street railway crossing business and a  considerable sum of city money was  expended in building the 'crossing  before leave had been obtained from  the C. P. R. to put it in at that point.  Exactly who it vvas that was to blame  is another matter. .The work vvas  done in accordance with a resolution  of the whole council at a meeting at  which all the members were present  except the mayor, who can therefore  be considered as personally exempt  from any responsibility in the matter.  The resolution was passed by a vote of  four to two, but at the same time t he  dissenting councillors opposed the  vote on other grounds than that no  leave had been obtained from the C.  P. R. to build the crossing. So that  as far lis tliat goes all were equally to  blame.-0 Nor in the Herald's opinion  is itat'nll likely that the-work which  has been done will be available for  traffic at any time, the C.P.R..-being  very much opposed to a level crossing  at this point, which is regarded owing  to the grade and curve as exception  allv dangerous.  It would be better at all events in  view of this occurrence that a rule  should be made providing for the appointment of'an acting mayor.with  full powers and responsibilities during  the absence from town nl, any time of  the mayor himself. The lncth'od or  want of 'method at present in vogue  partakes too much of the happy-go  lucky style of things to'- resemble  business. "The mayor is not solely  chairman of the council. He is the  supreme magistrrte and functionary  of the city and his absence without  the appointment of a substitute might  prove exceedingly awkward in the  event of a great fire Tor some other  catastrophe, from which Revelstoke is  no more exempt than any other place.  And even in such a case as the crossing matter, had the mayor been in  town he would have heen the person  held responsible for the expenditure,  -He is there.to see thnt absolute  waste  of civic funds does not occur, all votes  to the contrary notwithstanding  And in his ahsence there should be a  substitute appointed to fill his place  and shoulder his responsibilities.  . fl  The Silver Cup-  The Topic says that all the fotce at  the Cup have been dismissed except  six men. pendinir changes in the management.
