LONDON. Dec. 5.���������The London  Chronicle's Modder river special says  that the British soldiers never faced  such a sustained fire as in the late  battle.

Tbero was no Hiticbing on fithur  side' and no pause for', five.' hours.  Gen. Methuen bad 20 ginis and fired  au average of 'Ml rounds apiece. The  Boers had almost an equal number of  guns, which it is reported were mostly  served bv French and German artillery  men. The Boer hotehkiss was directed  with marvellous accuracy, killing the  British sergeant, in charge, wounding  an oflicer and disabling a gun quite at  the beginning of the engagement. Ihe  standard tiearers thought it impossiblo  to go forward.  No quarter seems to have been given  on either sides and- the Briiish assert  iimid bullets the ambulance wagons  displayed Iheir flags prominently to  110 advantage. These were repeiitedly  driven* back and compelled to take  refuge out of sight. It. is alleged that  the Boers used dimi bullets and made  a special target of tha Horses on the  plain in hope of hittir.g the riders.  While the Argyle Highlanders were  pushing across lhey were fired upon  from a house and several fell. Thereupon the Highlanders stormed the  house, and although the Boers hoisted  a white flag, no attention was paid to  it and nil the Boers were shot.  Next morning when the cavalrv  ciossed the river the enemy's camp  was deserted. Some of the Boer  prisoners say that Cronje was in  supreme command. He had to whip  his men to prevent them from desevtr  ing.   und   despite   this,   many  down their rifles and lied.

" r    " r  *" We could stand all the other economic evils we have to  contend vvith if ''  the liquor traflic were out of the way."  The labor inatket is crowded, and'its ar��������� .  consequence wages  fall.     But owing- ,_  to the stimulus given   to  manufacturing industiv   by  tiie   introduction of -  the   capital" lately   employed   iu   the\,   .  liquor traffic, business is good for a    >  tune.      Soon,   however,   we    have   a.    ,  glutted market in consequence of the, -s ~  tact th it the ooiisiimeis aie not able  ���������t  to pmenase all they produce, owing to" '  lhe fact that the woi kets���������the  puiiei-- 1,  p-il consnineis���������leceive less than  one- ( '  foiiith'tif  the  value of their pi oducts ** ,  in wages.

Then follows thousands of idle men twins lo obtain work  at any puce.    Tbe  effect on the labor-  market is evidenced by  a further fall_   '  in   wages.      We   have all   sober  men  now, and thev must,  snppoit themselves.

PARTY.  rrom th������ Calgary Herald  We are quite willing lo ilo ihe  writer or tQhe second leader n the  Albertan of the 2Slh the justice or  K������ that it is one of the ablest  arUcles that has ever appealed In a  ^reveals on the part o������ iwauthm  an iniimate acquaintance wi.h .tot  politica! f-tory  ot  Cana a   an    -  In^of s'ueh a^w'SS in'VWal  journalistic arena as a foen.an wor-  thv of our steel.  But having granted so much we  Have to strongly differ with the Altaian writer bo.h in his conclusion!  and the methods he uses, to reaca  them. "While readily granting that  there is much in what he says.���������  believe he has over-stated his case  and arrived at a general opinion  which is to a great extent unjiistin-  able.  The general position he assumes is  that the Conservative party, having  fulfilled its mission and lost its greatest leader, is doomed to decoy acd  oblivion, and that nothing short cf a  miracle will ever restore It lo i.s  ancient  power   and   prestige.  It is amazing how easily the average Liberal is lulled into a false se-  curifv. Having been so long in tno  arctic shades of dispiriting cj position, how glibly he lays to his aungry  soul the flattering unction tnat i.ov.'  his party has tasted the sweets ol  office it has got an eternal option  on those same sweets and tnat no  power in earth or heaven can ever deprive it of them. Since the elections  of 1896" the average Canadiau Liberal  is a wonderful being. He has added  '  several  cubits  to his stature.  The mistake the Albertan writer  falls into is in being unahle to distinguish between a temporary disablement and a; permanent demoralization. "As a political organization,"  he says, "ready for victorious battle,  capable of grasping the reins of power  of guiding with success the destinies  of the nation, the Llberal-Conser-  party which Sir John Macdonald  founded in the fifties and leapt together during his life by the strength  of his wonderful personality is apparently pasing out of existence." As  a matter of fact the Liberal-Conservative party is in no more danger of  passing out of existence than is ;i. well  disciplined British army which tor  the time being may have lost its  best general and has met with a temporary reverse. The material is there  in both cases. The rank and file are  as numerous as ever, as loyal to their  traditions and as confident (-f ultimate success. We believe that statement will apply to tlie present condition of the Conservative party  throughout Canada. While there have  been a few turncoats���������and all honor  to the man who changes his allegiance for principle's sake���������vve believe  lhat a majority of the solid men of  Canada today are still Conservative.  Speaking more particularly of  "Western Canada, he would be a reckless man who would venture to a.serc  that Liberal-Conservatives do not  numerically preponderate.    Take  any  carefully   examined.      His    speeches  have more elfeet ou the political situation than when he was pnmo minister, for now he says what he likes,  then he said what he had to.   One of  his last utterances before the >vnenu  election was a bitter complaint ot the  miseries of oflice without poivar.   He  novv has power wilhout olli:e,  ti".d it  is not surprising that for : he moment  he  should    be content with the  change.   He has been prims minister  and his ambition  is satisfied,    l'rced  from the trammels o������ party bondage,  against which he always rooe'iea, no  is enabled to enjoy his leisure, .'.uu to  issue from it at intervals to   m.?re&8  his  powerful  personality    uooa    ire  public  mind.    It   is   a    uniiuo     ind  pleasant position, but will it lust'.   ���������'  that  there  is   little   prospect.        lhc  situation  at  present "is  favorable for  a man  detached from party  politics,  and  in  a position to  help,  new  one  side, now another, by expressing   an  independent opinion, which will commend   itself   to  the    large    body   of  thinking  men   who    are   not   strong  political   partisans.       It   is   to   these  that Lord Rosebery appeals, and it is  a   large,   intelligent     and   influential  constituency.    But   it   is,   from     tin:  nature of tlie case, unoi-gani-Cd,  anil  will never enable  a man  to exercise  controlling! influence      on  English  public  lite.    The  party  system   is  as  necessary a portion of our machinery  of government as the houses of parliament,   and   thc   man     who   would  help   to   govern   his    counlry   must  bend  to  the  yoke.    "Lord    Rosebery  (one  o������   his  admirers   and   defenders  saysj   is a  Liberal  by  instinct,    anil  he  has a deep  sense  of public  duty.  But he does not sec his duty in terms  of  ollice to a  party;   his  imagination  is   not  kindled   by   tbe   record     and  traditions   o������, thc  Liberal  party:     ",o  restore its fortunes, to promote-its return to power, are nol objects which  he would pursue ..for their own sake,  though  no  might  pursue  them  as; a  means  to  ends.   This  is not  a pose,  as some people thinTt, but his natural  instinct.'     If this ;.-, true, Lord Rosebery lacks one o������ the qualities necessary  to  make  a  great  leader.      The  task  of  managing  a  great   party   is  too* difficult   to   he   accomplished   by  any man who has not a natural ability   and   liltinf'   ior   it.   Brilliant   as  Lord   Rosebery's   abilities     nre,   this  one defect will mt lte him fail where  less  gifted   men,    who   have  the  instinct of leaderbiiir. will succeed,    ln  that case  he will  always    be an  interesting figure, but his influence will  grow less as th_ years go by and new  questions and new  men claim puolie  attention.    "When a generation aris "������������������  which is unfamiliar with  his history  and  becomes  t-- be  known   as     -lhe  man who was once prime minister.'  ho will be no :i~ oie content with his  position   than  when     he   held   ollice  without power.  HE ESCAPED BEING SHOT  RANCHERS ELATED  Ranchers are quite elated over the  continued favorable weather conditions. The one drawback to a perfect fall lies in the fact that the danger from prairie fires is increased.  Good piices for beef and ranche produce this season have put the ranche-  men in a prosperous and hopeful-  mood. When the ranching business  in this district is in a satisfactory  condilion, heen all business dependent upon the works of the men  who wrestle a living from tho fields  of nature, should feel equally buoyant and hopeful. Probably the most  satisfactory feature o������ this year's  ,ranching operations and the best indication of the tone of the industry  is in the re-investment of the stock--  men ot the profits of this- season inlo  stocker cattle, increasing their cattle  holding at a faster Hue than the natural increase. There is a general  inclination to set into the business,  and the Cypres Hills country is looked  upon with favor by prospective investors. Sales of ranche holdings  have been made this year at prices  twenty to twenty-five per cent better  than a few years ago. The long open  fall has allowed cattle to fatten up  and they still continue to take on fat  and at the present time buyers can  come into this range and pick up considerable beef'cattle which two months  ago were cut back by shippers as not  in condition, and which have since ripened up considerably.

He was  well treated at first and stayed a  week, but was ultimately advised to  go away if he did not want to be  shot,   lie  writes:  The    arrangements    ot    u     uoer  laager are  very  different frcm  those  of a Briiish military camp. Tho chief  difference   lies     in     the     fact   'that  among the Boers every  man is  supposed, as far as '.possible, to look after  his   own   affairs,   to   bring  his     own  wagon  and  horses,  and  to  some  extent  his own provisions.    The    government   provides     tents,    innnitets.  mackintoshes,  forage,  uud  provisions  for   distribution   to   those   who   vvjnt  any   of  these  things,   oul  no  'jtie   is  obliged   to -lake  them,    "n  the  other  hand   there  is no limit  to  wivil  any  individual   may   choose  io   bring  for  himself.   There  are   no   fixed   regulations  as to  messes, but fueurts  club  together   as   they   plea-ie     and   have  meals   wnen   lacy   like.     There  wero  many   small   parties   iu   lhu  Pretoria  laager   who   had   munag"!   to   make  themselves most comfortable, and had  spare   tents   and    an     abundance   of  linned and fresh provisions seal from  home,   and   Kaffir   servants   to   cook  liicir food and mind their horses, and  who   consequently   had   very   little to  do the whole day long beside eating,  talking,-mid   sleeping   except,     ver-  haps,    to   go    out for a ride.     'Ihere  were  No Drills  or field exercises, except a par ule on  the President's .birthday, and even  at this attendance was not obiiga-  gatory? Guards, however, wire put  round tlie camp regularly every  night, and from each of thc camps  a detachment of 20 or oO hoirt'iiici  were sent out every 12 hours to relieve the patrols station"::! along thc  Natal frontier. There was vory little  discipline or method in the camp,  but plenty of willingness, and a natural instinct for doing the right  thing, which served very well in iis  place. Aften- 1 was there two or  three days the whole camp vvas broken up and shifted a couple of nil! is  to bring it nearer better drinking  water and find better feed for the  horses. 'The, whole operation -vest  off perfectly smoothly with.-ut a  single order being given except the  order that the camp was to be m-ivecl.  13very man looked after his (Owu  affairs, and iu three or four nours  from the lime that the order to break  camp was given the ,new camy was  complete an'd\, cooking was going  busily on. Tn action the operations  of a Boe,r commando are directed  by the commandant and the field  cornet or field cornets, but, in camp  the chief work devolves upon the cor"-  poral������, of whom there were pei-hapr,  half a dozen in our laager. * The vor-  poral looks after the stores, distributes forage, rations and ammunition,  supervises the removal of ^the baggage, the erection of tents.the drawing up of the* wagons on the sides of  the laager, the tethering of the horses  in fact most of the operations of  camp life. He has also disciplinary  powers to the extent of ..aposing  small fines or strokes with a stirrup  leather for contravention of his  orders, though the power is not often  exercised.  , Many Speak English  The Pretoria laager was. specially  interesting owing to its composition.  Only half of it consisted of Boars  properly so-calicti, the farmers of uie  Pretoria "district: the other half was  composed of the citizens of Pretoria  itself���������lawyers, clerks, shopkeepers  and government officials. Between the  two there ..was "a great difference. Tn_  townsmen" of Pretoria are in most  ways very much more English than  Dutch, in their life,- their thought,  and, not least, their language. Manv,  too, among the I-Tetortans in tne  camp were English-born vburghers  who had been commandeered and  could not well refuse, and still more  were originally from Cape Colony.

The  Krupp will, no doubt, be placed on  the Nek itself and make,ihe position  au extremely difiicult, perhaps impossible ono to take.  The various corps  of  foreign volunteers may perhaps number 12U0 in i  all, and not 4000 or 5000 as was generally represented in the press. There  was  a German  corps  of 000 men  or  more  under Colonel    Schiel    on  tho  Freo State border by  the Klip river,  the  larger  part  of  which    has  now  marched   inio   Natal   with   the   Freo  State   commandos.    , A     considerable  section,  however,  broke  oft while    I  vvas  at  Sandspruit  because  they  objected  personally   to Colonel .Schiel,  aud marched across  lo join    General  Joubert's  force.   The    Hollanders   at  Sandspruit    numbered      about    2i.O.  Neither .'they  nor   the Germans wor-.-  held   in   very   much    regard   by   the  Boers, and many stories were in circulation   in   the .'camps    as   to   their  skill in falling off their horses.    The  "Irish'"��������� Irish-American     mainly   ���������-  numbered   about  100   men,   and   may  now  amount  to  double  that number  camped  under  a. green    flag wilh  a  harp  on it.   They .consisted of some  of    Johannesburg's    worst sweepings,  led by an American adventurer called "Colonel'' Blake. Their avowed object was  loot,   and   probably   that   is  all   they  will  ho any  good  for.   The  Boers .'themselves    had   the   poorest  opinion  of" them, and  were    anxious  to keep them out of thc way to prevent their doiug anything disgraceiul  Boers Confident  Tho confidence of the Boers in the  certainty   of   i.ielr   success   was   unbounded.   They  never doubled  for  a  moment that,  ..aving    onee    crossed  Lang's     Nek       they    would    inarch  straight! down  to.Durban,  destroying  the mere handful of British in thMr  path.   As for Cape Colony,that would  rise on every side  to welcome th'm.  Only  a   lew   of   the    more   educated  among   tue   Pretorians   contempt.:led  the   possiuility   o������   defeat,   and   even  they, afler   a  week  in     tho    ca.np,  were   caught  by   tho   general   contagion.   Tneir   confidence     was    based  chiefly on the excellence of their rin^  shooting   and   on     the     enthusiistic  spiyrit  which   animated     the    wa i!<~  country.   As  to    the    former  I   had  no   opportunity   .of    judging,   but   I  confess   to  feeling  a   little    doubtful  about it, when I heard them quoting  the events of the Jameson raid as ah  evidence thereof.    On one occasion  I  tried to  test the Boers'  capacity, for  estimating distances,  for which  {hey  were so celebrated.   1 took a distance  T guessed to be .700 yards and ask'-d  perhaps a dozen Boers and Freto-icns  to tell  me what it was.    I was  surprised to get every possible   list ince  from. 350  to 700  yards,  the ma:oiity  judging the distance to be aboit 500  yards.    On stepping it I fouud  i; to  be about 050 yards.   It is quite possible that if any .heavy engagements  take  place  in which    the   Lo^i _   are  themselves  exposed  to-a   severe   fire  the quality of the marksman".liip will  fall very short of their reputation.

FASHION'S FANCIES  At uo time of the year is afternoon  tea more appreciated than just now;  even members of the sterner sex do  not scorn "the cup that cheers" on  these cool autumn days, when the  sight of a ruddy flre, cozy hangings,  and the dainty teapot and its satellite  presents a pictuie that appeals not an  vain to the wanderer who may hav."  been "lighting the elements" at  greater length than he would desire.  _>ut tlio spirit of the afternoon" reception emanates from the presiding genius���������the mistress of the house, wno  should look well to it that she is  suitably clad in bright garments that  will fit into her surroundings wilh adaptive beauty. Many a time has the  tea gown been extolled, and that  worthily, but never can its remarkably happy qualities be more evident  than at this season, when art must  supplement nature in supplying something cheery and attractive for the  human eye to rest upon. This  thought was very forcibly impressed  upon me tho other day when I went  into the pretty drawing room of a woll  known and beautiful woman, who was  garbed in ono ot the loveliest creations possible. Whilst being loose  and neglige in its graceful draperies,  it yet had an indefinable air of smartness and dignity. All the exquisite  aids and shades aro employed for those  gowns iu soft, silky fabrics that have  little resisting power about thorn, but  allow.themselves to be molded under  the deft lingers of them odistc.  The beautiful tea gown of which I  havo just mado mention was of tor-  quolse bluo satin-faced cloth. From  tho shoulders it hung in straight folds  en princesse to within somo.10 inches  of the ground, when it suddenly burst  forth into a gored flounce that was  continued up the front, where the  gown opened. This flounce was headed  by a broad strip of ermine which also  formed the equaro lapels that turnetl  back from a vest of tucked white  chiffon. Many quaint designs are  bishop style, being gathered into the  wrist under a band of ermine, from  whence fell a soft niching of white  chiffon. aMny quaint designs . are  being revived for tea gowns, such as  Empire short waists and Japanese  wraps. Of the first kind was one of  palest coral nun's veiling, made to  hang loosely 'from the high waist,  ���������which was marked by a belt of thick  white cord. The neck was ever so  slightly left hare by the broad turndown collar ' of white quilted satin  edged with swan's down, whilst the  skirt was looped up on either side to  reveal an underskirt of the quilted  satin. Tho sleeves were of the wide  boll-shape, lined with satin, whilst  inner Eleeves.of white mousselin covered .the arms to the wrist. Many cf  the beautifully patterned brocades  answer the purpose ot the Japanese  gown admirably. Its style is too  well known to, need description, but  the combination of colors, which  should appear in chiffon ruffles at  throat and wrists, may be commented  upon. . A particularly Eastern effect-  was gained by the mixture ot leaf-  green,"heliotrope, blue and poppy-red.  These were not always '. merely laid  against one- another,- but frequently  the one /would be    laid    inside    the  - other, thus giving a mystic" coloring  that was delicious. ' For the woman  who is happily conscious that her  head is well set upon her shoulders  ns regards'symmetry as well as in the  more practical sense, may indulge in  having her tea gown**" made with p,  small   square.     decoletage���������small .. 'it  'must be. but sufficient to show the  curved roundness'of the base.of, the  thTiat. One such gown wa.~ of old-*  cold .Pompn sjitin. the sonai-p beinc  outlined with b������autlfiil oom gnipuro  insertion, from theneo s^o'o-like end"  o'f the Ince descenrt'nar on either side  bark and front. These ends .sn^eno  in size as they neared the hem ot.the  ���������own, so that they were no mean decoration; but'they were here and there  neld in position by a siu.u-c cuou oi  black iiii Don velvet. Very loose ami  wide were the sleeves of mis toileuc,  reaching only to just beiow the elbow,  where they were turned back with the  lace insertion. The Watteau pleat  is the favorite form for the back ot  * these gowns to take, as they are generally more- graceful when on the  figure than the close fitting draperies  .���������which are the only alternative.  and very naturaly start operations  with blouses. For indoor wear there  woultl be the longer and more modish  skirt, surmounted by a blouse ot  beaver colored silk. My inventive  genius pictures one much and closely  tucked, set round the front, and round  a little decolletage at the throat, into  a narrow stitched band of,the cloth,  closing with little torquoise links. Or  perhaps a thin, slim figure would  select preferably a wide collar of tucked muslin and lace to this severe  bliild thought the latter has a partlcu-  ular cachet regarded from the fashionable standpoint.  Then how eminently we'd vvith this  beaver-brown skin wouiu a pai-  mauve and white striped blouse accord, l saw just the very thing tne  other uay in green and white. li  was very sweet, the tucking being so  ingeniously contrived as to similate a  varied width of stripe. It was finished at the throat by a very high,  closely-titling collar ot lace, hemmed  and strapped with the silk and shaped  up inlo points at either side; and the  fronts had that long, flat, blouse  euect, which is so thoroughly French  and of tho hour. I know not how  else to exactly describe this particular  appearance. Those who have seen it  and like myself, emulate it on every  possible occasion, will know what I  mean. It is, I am inclined to think,  largely a question of corsets, tho  Running whereof is ably seconded by  the clever conturlcro. Anyway, lhe  result makes ot the brouse a garment  ot infinite grace and style, one calculated to impart to any skirt',' plain or  otherwise, an air ot distinctive and  dressy quality.   "~r  Well, so much for blouses. Then, if  it so fall to our happy lot! to be able  to indulge in one of them many  pretty boleros that abound of Persian  lamb���������this tittle, I find, embodies  many qualities���������thero is no more  pleasing contrast than a well built  skirt of this same beaver cloth;  though for that matter I would willingly undertake to plan out a similar economical policy in any one of  the prevailing colors. And I am  further prepared to promise any woman, who is .not, of course, too extravagantly social,' that ascheme such  as I have propounded, with a well and  tastefully made tailor suit for its leading note, will see her through the  three next and worst months of the  year.  s  COMPANY.

Sheds were also erect-,  ed with wooden bedsteads for the"ac7  commodation oi gold seekers who  might be found en route for the Klondike. In each . house Mr. " Charleston says there is an ample supply of  provisions to last the two men nine  months, so he thinks things will go  along swimmingly.  Fortunately, as things go ut present,  wo are parmittecl    an unsualy    wide  license iu contrasts, harmonies hitherto unheal- of, nevertheless" of excellent  effect, lending to us most amiable aid  towards this cconohfical end.      Who,  a few years back, would hava dreamed  of the daiiing mauve dress  and red  hat, or of a navy blue costume contrasted, with emerald green or parina,  while the very suggestion of > purple  and palo green    carried    a    shudder  along with it.      Nor is this   in   the  least degree "surprising, seeing the extremely limited choice of shades that  ��������� existed in those times.     But tho point  I am trying to impress is the great  and successful  wisdom ot possessing  one good gown rather   than   two of  average   quality.       Beaver   heing   a  neutral tint much    smiled   upon   by  . fashion just now, -we will, for thn sake  ot adorning the tale to some practical  purpose, take that in a fine face cloth,  fashioning it ln our Imagination into  coat and skirt form of elegant persuasion, adding for its further completion  a second skirl, short and of serviceable build.      This  second   skirt will  save the first one, and when both have  served  their  purpose  will, combined,  lend thmesolves  ftierhans after being  dyed) to next year's style.  BojnK so supplied wo can now bceln  to work out variations on th'is theme,  been laid , froin Antler  work is also progresing with the favorable weather. , On the line from  McGregor," 21 miles have, been graded.  A construction gang is now at work  on Lac du"^Bonnet line,-three* and a  half miles oow being graded. Thc  Snowflake line is in running order.  It now seems to be definitely settled  that the C. P. R.-will extend the Columbia, and Western line beyond Midway to-the Similkameen next summer.  Chief Engineer Tyo recently drove  over the proposed route. As a' result  Oscar Eglund, one of his assistants,  and a stall of 20 men have -just <been  despatched to the Similkameen, locating tho line. It was.the original Intention to build a road to Penticton  and thence to Hope on tbe main line,,  but owing to the sudden drop required  tb get down to Okanogan Lake this  route has been abandoned. After  leaving Rock Creek, west of Midway,  the road as now virtually decided on,  will run to Keremoos and Princeton,  through the Similkameen Valley,  thence to Spence's Bridge, not following the old route to Hope. By the  new survey, it is claimed, that satisfactory grades can be obtained. ' It  is to establish the grades that Mr. Eglund is now in the field with instructions to complete the work as soon1 as  possible, and the first contract, it Is  understood, will he for 150 miles of  grading.

' With theee  extras included, Mr. Charleston says  that the entire system cost $1S0 per  mile.  "Before proceeding with the work.'  added Mr. Charleston.

Poverty among those who  come under the notice of the charity  organization societies can be traced  to liquor in some 25 per cent of tho  cases. In almshouses the percentage  is 37. The investigation covered  13,-100'convicts, and in half the cases  intemperance was the cause of one  half of tho crime. It was a leading  causo in 31 p*er cent and a sole cause  in 16 per cent of the cases. The value"  of the liquor produced annually is  $300,000,000, the capital employed in  the business is almost $1,000,000,000,  the revenue collected from it nearly  $200,000,000 and the number ot persons deriving their support directly  from it no less than.1.800,000. These  figures refer to the United  States.  It has often  been said  that while  drink is undoubtedly a cause of poverty, poverty is also a cause of drink,  a glass of liquorbeing apparently and  for the time being a cheap method of  dulling  misery, though   in   the   end  it  proves most expensive.-  So while  drink is one, cause of insanity,   and  aggravates tendency to insanity.some  inherited weakness of mind may drive  the pauper to" drink for relief.   In.all  these  cases  intemperance  aggravates  ihe evil  for-which  it gives  temporary relief.   The case is like that of  a man living beyond his means and  borrowing money at a high rate "tif  interest.   He  is  travelling down hill  at a certainly    accelerating    rate of  speed.   The opinion is expressed that  in the United States the. evil is  decreasing, and the same is true of this  country-   One  cause  of  this   is   perfect sobriety necessitated by the complicated nature of modern industries,  consisting  of a number of processes  which  must  be  performed  with  the  utmost  exactness    and    promptness.  The great body of railway employees  may bo given as examples.    In modern  war,   too,   while  courage    never  goes out of fashion, courage alone is  not enough, and there are appliances  to be managed  with  the  most businesslike exactness.   It is  found  that  the  apparent  stimulus  given   by   intoxicants  is of a very  illusory kind.  It may  increase the  d!i~p_>sition    but  it  does  increase  the power to flgbt.

As the rush and hurry ot  modorn' life increases it seems likely  that habits of drinking to*excess will  be driven out by Bheer necessity. A  stolid.lelsure-loving people may drink  heavily with no result but stupidity;  but high pressure, nervous strain  and excessive drlnkng combined  wou'.d develop a race of madmen.   , o   The population of England has  doubled since Qneen Victoria ascended  the throne; but thenumber of drinking places has increased four-fold.

Personally _the Hkiiald hns nothing  against Mr. Coursier. Politically it does  not matter to the Heuai.d tvvo straws  whether he retains his job  or not.   If  lie were to lose it tomorrow the only  result   would   be that another  member of the Kellie gang, equally   incompetent.-md unlit  for  tlie  place, would  bo appointed.    At, the same  time  Mr.  Comsier bus by no   means  been   such  a startling success as gold commissioner lhat as a matter of public, duly  the  Hun A i.i) can consider itself warranted  in any longer overlooking the  serious-  results to  the   public   service,   which  follow from his  persistent connection  with private business runei'i'ii . in   this  town.     The   UkraiJ)    charges    Mr.  Coursier with being the  person  now  trailing in tliis place  under  llie   name  of the Cash Bazaar and wilh now being  still a member of the firm  doing   business as Morris & Steed.    And vve warn  Mr. Coursier  that  unless  within   the  next three months be gives  through  the columns of  the Hhhai.D satisfactory assurances  that  his   connection,  direct or indirect, vvith these  business  concerns has  absolutely  and  entirely  tensed, the Hisk.m.d will be compelled  to push the matter in such a  way as  vvill leave  the  government  no  choice  but to demand   his resignation  from  the position of gold commissioner. And  in so doing  the   Hekald   is   dealing  with Mr. Coursier simply as  a -matter  of public duty.    Considering  the circumstances   of   liis   appointment the  Hekald has given  Mr. Coursier a fair  show to prove himself.   He has had  every chance to illustrate  as  a  public  official the principles of honest government, of which   be  was  such   a  loudmouthed   supporter   before   the    last  provincial  election.      He     lias    most  signally failed  to   do  so,   so  signally  Hint,   though   with   great  reluctance  the Hekald feels compelled to expose  him,   feeling  confident   at    lhe same  time that it hns  dealt and   is  dealing  with him with fm- more leniency anil  consideration than he and  liis friends  would have dealt vvith  a  similar  case  among their political opponents.
