ViCT*ORrA, April 7.���������Tho attitude of  the Crown ns represented by Deputy  Attorney-Geneial MacLean, in the  Jeifs case has been sever, ely criticised.  Although the evidence showed that  Jeffs had bought his ticket for San  Franc'sco previous to the unfortunate  disturbance that resulted in the death  of A. C. Anderson, Mr. MacLean,  despite the protests of counsel for the  accused, insisted on stating that  accused left to avoid arrest. As Jells  ia well known in this city, his family  having resided here for some yeais.  the uncalled for efforts made to secure  a. committal have been the occasion ol  much adverse comment. The? accused  is now out on $5000 bail, pending the  Assizes which open on Oth May, and  the Magistrate for tho first time took  advantage of Section 001 of, the  Criminal Code, relensiug the accused  on bail, owing to rhe fact that, though  the case was a, proper one to go to a  juiy.it is not probable a conviction  will be secured.  The six chiefs of the Tsimpsian  Indians have signed 11 protest refusing  to live under the jurisdiction of George  Marrow, tecently appointed Indian  Agent at Methtkatlali vice the late  Mr. Todd. They went down to Van  couver to interview Mr. Macpherson,  the local member, but finding he had  left for Ottawa, transfenud the protest there. -  Fishery., Commissioner , Babcock  reports the Lillooet hatchery completed and everything ' ieady for  commencing operations.        . <���������<  ;    "   ' _'   Political Pot ;"  Victoria, B.

McBiide followed nnd" s'eveiely  criticised. ,the government's piop'osed  Arbitration Law. . He held that the  governicenl 'hud not gone'-f.ir enniiglv  in protebting-against thedisillowance  of legislation, and thought our pi ot'est  should have heen carried ifinecessary  to the .Throne itself.,- He accused the  Premier'of having'broken faith with  the House in allotting foreshore leases  on Vancouver* Island, for fish trips  and'ronsideted the" Fishery Coinmis'  sioner's leporfnothing moie than a  sgec'al 'plea for traps. As for ' the  mineral 'tax. be'thought the sLag.  nation in the mining industiy wa-*  noi caused so much by the lax  in question as by the wildcat  operations of men like Whitakei  Wiight. It might bo well, he con.  tinned, to suspend all taxation ol  mines for a limited period, as in the  piesenl state of the metal maiket^ a  tax ot even one per cent, on profits  might in some cases cause hiudship.  Oliver, of Delta, was the only  other  speaker 111 d the address passed with"  out division at three o'clock.  A delegation of loggers, among  whom was V. F.

The .Herald li.is .been uaable to  obtain, as - yet, , complete *>tntisLics  regaiding lumber costs as mentioned  in lust- week's issue;,but every.effcj-L  is 'lieingt iu,ide"'in*that aiieb'tioprsind  the results of our investigj.tiori~will be  ���������given at. soon as possible.  . The principal event this week in the  dispute has;- been the refusal of the  apeci.il committee'1 appointed by tin-  Winnipeg Cily Council to liear.'any  ovidence trom the Western Lumbermen's Association unless publication  was permitted?" i The committee met  in that city last Thursday and Mr. D.  E. Spragtte, representing the Association, stated he was willing to submit  evidence to the committee privately,  but its details'were of such .i character  that publication'whs inadvisable. The  committee, through its chairman,  would entertain no proposal of this  kind, anil without waiting to ascertain  thc character of the proposed evidence,  closed the investigation. The report  will therefore be presented without  any hearing for the defence, a course  which appears, to say the least, some  what prejudiced.  Another interesting feature of tha  case is the fact that Walter Scott, M.  P. tor West Assiniboia, has addressed  a memorial to the Minister of Justice  asking that an enquiry he held to find  whether the association is an illegal  one. He alleges that prices *re unduly  high, and that unless a remedy can be  found serious injury to the West will  result. He also urges that the  Dominion Government amend timber  regulations pioviding for forfeiture of  license where the holder becomes a  party to any improper combination.  ��������� Premier H.tultain of the North West  Territoiies, was interviewed on the  matter since our lasfHssue, and stated  that as the Association had its offices  outside his jurisdiction it was not in  the power of his Government to  interfere.  Whilo the people of - Manitoba nre  raising this kick about the Biiti-.li  Columbia industry it would bo well for  them to look into the operations of  their own lumbermen. In the vicinity  of Dauphin and Duck Mountains there  are about a dozen stationary mills.and  some 2000 men are employed in their  operations. As the cut of the principal mills aggregated, according to  Winnipeg papers, about .tt.000,000 feet  with   an   additional   1,500,000 feet for  Cortable mills at various points, il will  a seen that rf very large proportion'of  tho lumber used in thepraiiie province  is of local production. Despite all the  commotion it has still to be proved  that the lumbermen of this province  are reaping undue piofits, and until  this has beau done it would be well to  withold judgment. Tho lumber  industry was continued for a number  ot years without profit, and the luriif  bermen are entitled, under present  conditions, at all events, to a reasonable margin.

Soldiers are not the only men who fire  ������t targets. Consciously or unconsciously, vou and 1 tire doing the same thing.  *U"lie target nt which we fire  la -our ideal���������nnd every true man  Bias an ideal at which lie is aiming in tlie  ���������social, commercial, professional nnd re-  Ugious world. How to hit this target  *ts the -question that agitates noble soula.  a3ut who shall give us n practical ex-  nibition in the art of archery and con-  etitute our hero of the target? Johu,  the King of Israel. The target lie hit  ���������n-as a King's heart, and the tragic incident is well worth your reading. It. was  ��������� brilliant feat of arms. Our text tells  ���������08 how it was accomplished:���������"Jehu  ���������Slew a bow with his full strength."  Three things made liis arrow effective  ���������-individuality, physical energy and definite aim. Put these forces behind tho  arrow that flies from our bowstring and  lire too shall hit the target at which we  are aiming.  ���������Jehu's individuality Is indicated by  the weapon he used���������a bow. lie had  tae good sense to stick to  the bow and tfo take no chances  With        tbe        new-fangled armor  ���������of Kings, li'i dismissed a false dignity  and won,a crown. Hud he lust his iu-  ���������dividuality he had lost'his thrum*.  But he also put* behind his arrow a  splendid physical energy,    lie "drew  a  iiuw  with  his  full  strength."    1   know  there are those Who admire Jehu notjie*  ���������cause of his manly strength, but because  ei his title.   For* Jehu the athlete tliey  aave      only      contempt,      but      they  ���������Worship      Jehu       the      King.        Not  ���������strength of arm, nor quality oi intellect.  Jour moral tone constitutes the glory of  a. man, but his titles.   He need not be a  noble man so long as he is a nobleman.  'Koyal blood!    They tell us that was  She kind that coursed through the veins  ������f George III., but not through the veins  ���������f  George  Waahington.    His  was  only  ���������ordinary blood.   Indeed!    Think of this  ���������Henry   VIII..  royal .blood;   Abraham  .Lincoln, common  blood.    Bloody Mary,  royal blood; John Knox and John Wesley, common  blood.    Queen  Elizabeth,  Yoyal blood;    Shakespeare   and   Bacon,  common blood.  -Jehu hit the target not because ho  ���������a-as King, bill because he drew a bow  ���������with his full strength. Not his title but  liis muscle tired the arrow that won his  jerown. But if a third secret of his  ���������splendid marksmanship be called for, we  : -find it in his definite aim. Without this  ibis individuality and physical strength  ���������would not have achieved this.feat of  archery. If one would hit the target he  must fire at it, not toward it. Yet who  ���������dues not fire in ths air? Who takes definite aim?  ���������Id prayer we miss the mark because  ire ask everything in general and no-  th.ng in particular. Not so the publican.  lie said:���������''God be merciful to mc, a  sinner." There were scores of sinners  all about him, but he hit the target by  ���������aiming at one of them." "Me!" Bart-  inieus said:���������'"Lord, that I may receive  ���������my sight!" He hit tile target by aiming  at Bartimeus. The Syroplicnicinn wo-  ���������Bian said:���������'My daughter is vexed of a  ���������devil,'' and hit the target by taking definite aim at her own daughter. But for  ���������such detinite aim the .'world.'never have  Jir-ard of Noah. For one hundred and  twenty..years.Jie fired away at one tar-  ���������get���������an ark. And this one thing he did  ���������he built.

If ever 1 got a chance to hit  the institution of slavery, I'll hit it  bard." He finally hit the target of slav-  ���������rry, because it was the definite aim of  tk������ life, and, thank God! he hit it hard.  A greater than Lincoln was Paul. And  "That was the secret of his greatness I  You find it in his m-tto,-"Tlii- one thing  1 do."

This was his master purpose.  -Ve-Was^a^^specialilit.^and^his^speclalty^  ���������tras the cross of Christ. Such definite*  ���������Bess of aim will never fail. Like Paul,  jphu hit the target because he took  ���������definite aim.  What target, what ideal are we aim-  tnjr at in life? If we do not know, we  Trill not hit it. One must see the tar-  :f et before he can ta'.-e definite aim. Decide, then, what you wish to be, and be  it. Kn-y-v what you wish to do, and do  4l. Conclude what target you wish to hit,  ��������� nd hit it, especially those targets which  ������������������Uod has commanded us to hit���������truth,  ���������Irtue, Christian character, prayer, love  and goodness.

Mistakes of Fruit Exporters.  Mr. E. H. Wartinan, Fruit Inspector, Cub torn House, Montreal, writes:���������"A statement has just como to  hand that 301 barrels No. 2 and No. 3  grade Canadian apples sold in Liverpool,  ling., netted one of Canada's ��������� old and  respect-ed firms 21c per barrel buck.  This lacks a few cents of paying for  the empty barrels. Could we expect  anything different in a year like tho  present, with a big crop of generally  poor quality fruit, to flood markets witli  second nnd third grades? Would it not  have been far better to have taken 30c  per cwt. or loss at evaporators for these two grades, and shipped nothing but No. 1 stock? It is only at  a time of scarcity when a No. 2 class  of apples will do well.

In an explanatory article of the manner in which its fund for the aid of the  London poor, particularly those of the  East End, is being expended, Tho   London Chronicle says:���������"As the work becomes more systematic, and.as each centre settles down to tackle the vast mass  of misery around it, the committee find  that their worst anticipations as to the  nature of the distress arc being more  ��������� than realized.   The more closely inquiries are made, and the more the relief  work of our fund extends, ths greater  seems to be the amount    of   suffering  whicli is waiting to be dealt with.   Tlie  whole morning is taken up at each place  in   hearing  applications, : and   each  day  the number of them increases.   Perhaps  the best work of all is being done amongst thc children.      Nearly    3,000   of  them are now getting a good meal every  morning  at   8  o'clock,  consisting  of  a  pint  of  coffee  made  with  milk,  and  a  large currant loaf.

Herr, Ernest yon Wildenbruch,  the well-known novelist, in a poem replying to Kipling and': conspicuously  printed by newspapers of every political  hue, intimates that everything Kipling  has heretofore written is wiped out for  the Germans by his latest ver3es, and  that his name -.shall never again be  heard in Germany.  With perfect truth The Digest might  have added that the poem:���������though it  has been sharply criticized from a literary standpoint���������voices the sentiment  of the British people in regard to the  Briti*h-German ai-isice in the Venezue-  Jn dispute. Judging by the viewn of the  riti������nlpr*M_of_������ll,������hadi*-s_of..political_op--_  inion, the partnership is the most unpopular act for which the Government must  take the responsibility. In spite of von  Wildenbruch'e poem, however���������and by  the way il ii said to be literarily far inferior to that to which he replies���������one  may dare to think that Kipling's name  will be heard in Germany for many  years to come.  He Timed the Observatory.  The following story has appeared under several guises, but is worthy of repetition ijr-The purchaser of a watch  made by a company doing business in  the east central district of London bad  made for some time a practice of  watching each day for the fall of the  time ball at Greenwich observatory. One  day he was amazed to notice that the  ball fell some second.-) before his minute hand touched the hour. Such confidence had be in his watch that he told  his friends that some mistake had been  made at the observatory. They laughed at him, but he wrote to tell the observatory authorities about it.  By return of post he received abetter in which the astronomer royal informed him that the time-ball had  been accidentally dropped 18 seconds  too soon upon the day in question.  This letter was sent by its recipient to  the company by whom his watch had  been made, and, of course, published. It  has been acknowledged by them to be  one of the most valuable advertisements ever received by any firm.  Preventing Milk Fever.  A correspondent    of    The    Farmers'  Advocate relates how  he  has entirely  got rid of milk fevr in his    breeding  stock.     He    says:���������"I am continually  getting letters asking what to do to prevent milk fever.   Milk fever has no terrors for me now, because, after three  years' freedom I feel I have a  treatment that is a preventive if followed  in its entirety.   This is my practice for  all, as in the case of a cow that calved  two days ago, which was very fat and  flush, would weigh 1,700 pounds before  calving; a case calling for heroicvtreat-  ment.   I gave her several doses of carbolic acid twice daily for three days a  week before calving, 25 drops pure carbolic in one pint of water and mixed  on  bran.    When .1 "saw   ������he  was  near  calving, I gave her two pounds Epsom  salts; she calved in six hours after getting the attilts  (just right).    After calving she woe very thirsty.' I gave  hor  fifteen pounds warm water; in half an  hour warm bran mash made very sloppy, to which I added a handful of common salt.   I determined to run no risks,  but   made   her   drink   all   the  water  I  wanted her to, and that is a lot.    One  hour  after  calving she  got 20  pound3  or so   of water, in  another:   hour ��������� 25  pounds more, and an hour later another  large pailful, thc chill taken off it all.  I had  100 pounds to  125 pounds water  in hir five or six hours after she calved.   There is virtue in plenty of water."  Beware the Pee Weevil.  E. P. Felt, Now York State Kntomol-  'gist, writing of the pea weevil, says:���������  This little insect (liruchus pisi, Linn.)  is~ a species which occurs somewhat  commonly in peas. Its presence is too  frequently overlooked, or regarded as of  comparatively little importance, .'".-and  those planting a few peas or oven growing them on a considerable scale pay  little or no attention to whether the  seed is infested by this insect or not.  As, a matter of fart'this subject, is of,  considerable importance, particularly in  Canada, where the species has caused  enormous losses in recent years, and  unless repressive measures are adopted  or_in_force it may cause much damago  All kinds of stock arc subject to loss  of appetite when the food does not consist of a variety., A mess of cooked  turnips may improve an animal more  than medicine. Always resort to a  change of food when the animals soem  to  lose   appetite.  in the United State*?  Aside from direct injury, it is aiwcll  established fact that peas infested by  this species have not the commercial  value of clean iced, r-ince, as determined  by Dr. Fletcher, only 17 to 20 per cent.  of the infested ones will germinate.  This means that wher* the weevil is at  alt abundant in the seed, one-half to  four-fifths of it may be worthies.*-,  and purchasers will do well to bear this  in mind. The sowing of this seed not  only results in a smaller than normal  number of plants, but also aids the propagation of the insect, and itis very  probable that a great many of the^e  pests are eaten in the green peae, which  latter is not agreeable to contemplate.'   ���������:-���������  The apecSes can be easily controlled,  since! it is confined to one food plant,  namely, peas, and hibernates either within the seed or in sheltered places. If  the1 peas for seed purposes are harvested early, promptly threshed and  treated with carbon bi-siilphide, none of  the insects will be able to survive, and  Dr. Fletcher states that even if the peas  be tightly enclosed in a paper bag the  weevils will be unable to escape Jrotn  their prison, and if the seed be held  over until the second year, which may  be done without injuring its germinating powers, all of the weevils will die,  and consequently there tvill be no danger  of the species' propagating. -  This simple method involves little or  no additional expense,:and if the largf  growers of seed pea* will in turn cooperate and fumigate all 'of:'thei**^lit'ocK'  there should be comparatively little'or  no trouble from the species in future  years. It would undoubtedly be good  business policy for: growers of peas to  print on each package a statement to  the effect that the need hns been properly fumigated, arid buyers are urgi-il  to insist upon this 'treatment or to apply it to seed before it i* planted.  ������; -ci-is^*o������imasmt^'^^^  Having been offered a clerical position in my brother-in-law's office at hi*  company's coal mine, in Bellingham Bay,  Washington Territory, I proceeded at  ntico to the const, and on nrrivnl had  been given n few days' free time to get  over tho effects of my long trip and to  nmiise myself.

"To try for a partridge or two," said I.  "Well, you are not in Ontario now,  young man, and it isn't our custom to  go single-handed through Uie bush about  here. You better take a couple of Indians with you. Here, you two fellows," said the manager, hailing a couple of redmen who were leading mnlus,  "'go with this young man."  After stabling the mules thoy    came  along, each shouldering a rifle.   But, nothing daunted, I led  the way.      They  could speak very little English, and  I  no Indian, eo there was no use trying  to learn anything nbout the plr.ee from  them.    It was" their habit,. I observed,  to save as many steps as possible,--mid  when they thought I would work my  way in a certain direction   they would  take a short-cut to catch up.   But, niter an hour or two of this kind of thing  it suddenly occurred to mo that I had  not seen them for at least half an hour,  and that tho fault was my own, for 1  hnd been zig-zagging in overy direction.  Besides, I hadn't  fired  a shot.    1  had  taken my bearings by the sun, and must  have tramped several miles.   Being eiger  to drop the first bird flushed, I had, up  to this, thought of little else than jiart-  ridge, but now, as T stood in an '''opening surveying the immensity nnd solemnity of all about me, n great sense of  loneliness crept over me, and, listcniivr,  ) could  hear  nothing   but   my   hear.'s  bulsations,   I must return/Taking what  I thought to be the proper direction. I  had gone only a few  steps, when,   lo  my horror, I saw a large bear scratching himself against a tree, his head turned: from me.   I didn't know, what to do.  Move I dare not, or he would hear me.  Shoot!   What is the use, with only bird-  shot in the gun ?  He must scent mel    Hear him sniffing!    He stop* scratching and  raises  his head, yet doesn't see me.    What a  chance if this were a rifle I    He is not  more than twenty paces from me.   Involuntarily   I  level" my   little   shotgun,  and, Heavens!, off it goes, unintentionally.   He turns toward me with a ter-  riblo snort and 1 pull my second barrel, then run.    I  thought I could rim  when I used to .beat my companions at  home, but that was slow compared with  this.    Looking back after having made  the best hundred yard dash of my life.

" This  gave me a little hope, but, before I had  gone  another hundred  it was  plain  ho  had reduced bhe distance betwoen us by  at least one-third; so ������ -dropped the gun  and shouted and ran, and ran nnd shouted, till I was getting out of breath.    1  must take to a tree! , There was one  straight ahead,  and  nbout as thick  ns  a; stovepipe,  but   before T   could   draw  my feet up on the limb to which I had  climbed, he was renehing for me, nnd  struck my boot with his claws.  'How I  did screech!   But a time came when my  voice gave out entirely from the overstrain.

Then he would: sit  and look up at me, and I could see him  thinking "How am I going to get this  fellow down." Presently  he   started   to  chew, and as the big bites of bark dropped I thought I was a gonner, sure.

By its provisions a person  may bo arrostcd for  ilmplo drunkenness.    A publican    who  lervcs an habitual    inebriate, whether  under  tlio  influenco of drink    or not,  renders himself liablo to a heavy line,  while a private individual who purchases  intoxicants for a   convicted   drunkard  subjects himself to a substantial penalty.   Most important of all, a husband  may obtain a legal separation from his  wife if ho can prove that she   is addicted to excessive drinking.   Thc man-  Igor of a largo syndicate of    public-  houses, and an official of the Licensed  Victuallers' Protection Association, expressed to a representative of The Daily  Mail the opinion that among respectable  members  of  the "trado"  the  new  act  was heartily welcome   "lt will,    however, spell ruin to tho keepers of badly-  managed beerhouses," ho added,    "and  we anticipate seeing a number of such  places in  the East  End closod. befoio  very long.   These places cannot possibly  survive the act.   Their main support is  derived from   habitual' drinkers���������dock  laborers and the like, who spend wholo  days in the public-houses."        ���������"���������'."  .Why was the act passed ?    The: following facta and ligures, obtained from  authoritative sources, all'ord an answer  to the question :���������In tho United Kingdom 2.05 gallons of absolute alcohol pur  head of the population arc    consumed  every year.    This is considerably moro  than  the  consumption  in  tlio    United  Stales, which averages HO gallons, whilo  in, Kussin,  whore - vodka,   perhaps  the  most alcoholic and harmful of intoxicants, is tho favorite spirituous liquor,  thc consumption of alcohol amounts to  .00 gollon per head  of  tho population.  Norway is still lower with .54 giillon.  In   tho -United   Kingdom     1,320,0118,000  gallons of beer and 57,228,000 gallons of  proof spirits arc produced annually.   The  Imperial  revenue  from  taxes on  alcoholic beverages amounts to ������33,870,000 a  year.    In  1892 the drink bill    for the  United Kingdom amounted to the colossal sum of ������140,800,000, or ������3 13s lid  for each head of the.population.   Tho  charges   of  drunkenness   heard * in; the  police courts of England and Wales numbered   173,020.    In  1809  thc  drink  bill  had increased to ������102,100,000, or a halt  penny short of ������4 for each inhabitant,  while thc police court prosecutions hnd  grown to 214,298.   The death rate from  alcohol during the last fifteen years has  increased by 42 per cent, in men and  100 per cent, in women.   In several provincial cities���������notably   Liverpool���������more  people die from alcohol than from all  the zymotie diseases taken together.  Another scriotiB aspect .of the increasing intemperance is the number of  people admitted to tho asylums of tho  country whose condition is due to excessive indulgence, lt is estimated that  there are in the refuges for the insane  10,1*00 males and 5,80U females who owa  their mental decay to the clfects of alcohol. In'nine years 800 men and 50*1  women were admitted to one nsylum���������  that at Claybury���������alllictcd with insanity  duo to drink. At Nottingham twice as  many women as'men become insane as  a result of drinking. In London every  year COO persons, of whom 200 are females, become inmates of pauper asylums from the same cause. formerly  throughout, England there was one insane person in 500; now tho proportion  Is one to 300. Insanity due to alcohol  .is vastly on the increase among women.  Indeed a representative of The Illustrated Mail was informed by a politician  who took a prominent part in the framing of.the bill which has now becomo  law, but who wishes to remain anonymous, that one of the principal objects  in introducing thc bill was to afford  husbands protci'iion against inebriate  wives. In the opinion of Dr. Mott, a  well-known member of the tSociety;. for  the'Study of Inebriety, women ��������� drink  from totally dilferi*nt causes to men. Dr.  Heywood Smith aflVms that it is chieily  trouble in the home that induces women  to drink, whereas with men the principal  cause is business worry.*  The opinions of experts differ as to  what the eirect of the new act will be.  One���������well-known���������authority���������a_raedical  man���������declares that any fresh legislation  against drunkenness causes a fresh outburst of intemperance. He points out  that in Maine (U.S.A.), when prohibition  legislation, was introduced and every  drunken person was - arrested, the number of confirmed inebriates, increased  from 15,000 to 42,000. .Legislation, he  asserts, puts down only moderate drinking.

At the end of the evening,  when Tennyson had departed; she gays  vent to her feelings, after asking whether that was "really the poet," in these  words, "Well! he do wear clothes!" "yes.  so do most poets," answered Sullivan.  "And then you must remember: that he  is a Laureate."

The next day, Madeline wan well  enough to sit up in a cosy little room,  adjoining her bedchamber.  There was, indeed, no reason why,  tbe Bhould not have gone downstairs,  .but this she seemed strangely reluctant to do.  She looked even more beautiful thao  the had been before her illness.  Her paleness made her eyes seem  farger and darker.  There was a softened, chastened;  fodk on her face, which became it well,  and made Marjorle's heart go out to-  ���������wards ber with added tenderness.  The two. girls were alone together  during the earlier part of the day.  Marjorie thought Madeline seemed  gad, and wondered why.  In her heart she suspected that tho  ���������adness had some reference to Edgar  (Hyde.  "Marjorie, when did Mrs. Thornton  cay she should return to England?"  asked Madeline, breaking a rather long  6llenco, during which she had seemed  eunk in painful thought.���������Mrs. Thornton was the lady who bad engaged  tylarjorie as a companion. __rt-,  ��������� "In n month from now."  "Marjorie, come here. I want you."  And, with nn appealing gesture, sho  ehowed that sho wished her to como  ,.aml kneel beside hor chair,. .'������������������  Marjorie obeyed with u tender smllo.  Madeline  took the  fair young fneo  fn both of her hands, mid looked at lt  j,ith a long, loving, wistful glance.  "Marjorie, I think you know I lov&  Toil?"  So earnestly she spoke, with such a  <ad, gentle pathos, that involuntarily  tho tears started to Marjorle's eyes.  "Yes, Madeline, I know that.   Iiowj  could I help knowirg It?"..     ������������������_'"  j     "And you love ine?"       .    .-'.\.*r  "I do���������Indeed I do." , r-~  '"  '.  "Then, if I ask you to oo a very,  strange thing���������what you must need3  think strange���������you will not misunderstand me? You will not doubt my;  love for you?"  "Dear Madeline, you know I shou'.ii  never do that."  And Marjorie pressed more closely  to her friend.  "Well, Marjorie, I want to suggest  something to you which I believe will  be for your good and mine. As soon  ns Mrs. Thornton returns to England  go to her."  Marjorie could not repress her sur*  prise.  "And leave you?" she exclaimed,  looking up at Madeline with startled,  ���������wide-open eyes.  "Yes, and leave me," replied Mado*  line, Bteadily, though in a tone of unutterable mournfulness. "Don't ask  mo the reason, Marjorie���������only believe  .that I am acting for the best."   '  "What can be the reason?" thought  Marjorie; and then a suspicion leapt  into her mind which made her cneeks  burn, and her eyes droop hurriedly beneath her friend's glance.  She remembered the unwelcome at*  tention of Edgar Hyde; the admiration which shone boldly in his glance  ���������whenever it fell on her.  Had Madeline got some knowledge  of.these things, even in the confinement of her bedchamber, and was this  why she wanted her to go away?  Her suspicion was confirmed when,  tmly a few minutes' later, Madeline began to speak of him.      .  ,  "I thing you must have guessed what  te is to me," Marjorie,"-she said,' in a  low voice, and glancing .down at .a  magnificent diamond ring she wore on  her finger.  ."I have guessed you were engaged, to  film���������yes."    ' , _  "Marjorie, .you don't know���������yoh  can't dream how I love that man!"!  Madeline spoke with sudden energy,  I Her pale cheeks glowed.    *  i She interlaced "her fingers in'a listless fashion, which    showed    plainly  .enough the agitation of her mind.  Marjorie knew not what to say.  She sat in silence, making no answer  Jieyond a gentle caress with her hand.  - "To some women love  comes only  As a curse���������a bitter curse," went on  ���������Madeline,  vehemently,  while the red  epot glowed  more brightly    in    her  cheek.   "It has,come so to me."  "Oh, no, Madeline! Surely���������surely.  Cot!"  "It has.'. It Is my curse and punish*  ment that I love Edgar Hyde with a  mad, blind love for which I am*.ready  to sacrifice-myself, body and soul."- -  "Punishment, Madeline!" echoed  Marjorie, in surprise/ "Punishment  for what?"  Madeline did not, answer the ques.  tion. She played with her fingers mora  restlessly than ever, and proceeded, in  a low tone, more as though she wero  speaking to herself than to Marjorie���������  "Great heavens! how I love him!  iWhen I think of the depth and passion  of it, it frightens mo. I am frightened  at-myself���������at-my-own-heart.���������Ohrthe  misery���������the misery of such a love!"  "Dear Madeline, surely he loves you,  loo?" Marjorie ventured.  "I don't know," said Madeline,  Abruptly. "I don't know what to  think about it. I am afraid to think.  It would drive me'mad."  "Did he give you thnt ring?" questioned Marjorie, softly, noticing that  ���������be   was   plucking at it fiercely, as  ,*hough lt had been composed ol red-  aot metal, and was burning into her  lesh.  Sha ceased to pluck at lt as Marjoria  asked the question. .  "Yes," she said dully. "He gave it  to me."  After a moment she added, with a  eudden return to ber former vahem-  ence���������  "Marjorie, never, never love unless  you are certain the man Is worthy, ol  you, and that he loves you with a passion equal to your own. If you do, you  would be happier dead. Aye, better a  thousand times for me to be lying in  the cold churchyard than to be eajtlng  ���������py own heart out, as I am doing now."  Her voice rose almost to a wall in  fler grief and passion.  Marjorle's heart overflowed with pity  ���������nd sympathy; but she felt a little  alarmed concern as woll.

And the other thing,*the thing thaV  troubled her most of all, was that she  wus certain Madeline" had meant to  warn^ her against this very Charlea  Hyde when she had said, with such ex-'  traordinary vehemence:  "Marjorie," never, never love unless,  you are certain the man is worthy of  you, and that he loves you with a passion equal to your own.

She crossed the garden at tbe back  of the house, and walkea quickly up  the hill to the wood. She had barely  reached its outskirts when a hurrying  step behind her made her turn.  .Charles Hyde was coming up the hill  with eager looks. He was scarce, half  a dozen yards away.  She felt the color rush into hot  cheeks, and then as suddenly retreat.  Her heart beat very fast. She could  not doubt he had followed her purposely. If she had doubted it, his first  words would have told her the truth.  "I saw you from the window," he  said, quite frankly, as he came up to  her, "and I came after you.

Strange tales arc told of the methods  of the United States customs.   A lady  who   had   visited   the   Continent   and  done much shopping In London, on the  way home on  the Atlantic made the  acquaintance of n most delightful man,  to whom she confided the story of her  triumphant bargains. "But what about  the customs?" asked her friend.   "Can  you  dodge  them?"     "Oh!"  said   the  lady, "I always do it in a way that  can't be found out.    For instance,  1  roll up a glove in each of my stockings.  See?"      The    pleasant    acquaintance  saw, and the consequence of his seeing  was that the lady's stockings���������as well  as several other things���������wero carefully  examined  and   surcharged   when  she  reached New York.   For that was the  business'of the pleasant acquaintance.  A witty remark does not always result so satisfactorily to the perpetrator  as in the case of the young curate who  obtained a valuable living In the West  of England by means of a pun.    The  rector  who held  the  living had  died,  and there were many applicants  for  the,place, which was worth ten thousand dollars a year.   Tho living was in  the gift of an earl, who was surprised  at the funeral by the manifestations of  grief   by   the   assembled   rectors   and  curates.   So he said to the young curate, who had been acting as the tutor  of his son: "Naturally thoy should feel  a proper amount of grief, but I 'cannot  understand why  they should weep so  frenzledly for  the dead."    The young  man Instantly replied:  "You are mistaken, my lord; it Is not for the dead  they weep; it is for the living."   Thereupon the" earl was so pleased .with the  keenness of the remark that he presented the living to the curate.  William E. Curtis tolls this .story  about Stanford White, tho well-known  architect of New York city: "A man  with a deep weed on his hat came into  Mr. -McKlm's ofllce one day and said  he would like a design for a monument  for his wifo,* recently deceased.

"Hill," he said,  "had thc cards marked all right, but ont  night he had been smoking dope, and  while ho was shaking hands with himself  in the White Houso, somebody stole th������  deck from under his livcr-pnd and  changed the marks."

Among the most  striking appreciations is the following  on his constitutional aversion to society:  "Ho has tho detachment of a hermit  Ho has attended thc House of Lordi  many hundreds of times, but ho know-  few of the members, outside his own  family, by sight.

Still, In fiction she has several times  figured as a wife and a mother, with  one son, perhaps, -or one daughter; and  but lately, with two sons, one the accomplished Francis Bacon, the other  the Earl of Essex.

The National Gallery was  that day opened by Quit-in Viutoria  and tlie building then "dedicated to the  jiieseivation of notable paintings has  bruome an important factor, in tbe  artistic progress of tlie Empire. Occupying a commanding site oirl'mfalgai"  .Square, behind the Nelson .monument  with the fniiious crouching lions at its  base: the National Gallery is one of  the sights of London. The reniatkiible  collection of 'J urnei' paintings and  etchings on exhibition make it a  Mecca for all who wish to study the  methods of that great master colurist.  toxt* bonks of a suitable c'liiiiiiftei" for  thu public school!*.  Wu are certainly in favor of the  iiinltoi" being thoroughly investigated  anil host Iho efforts of our local  School Hoard to secure united notion  from all purls of the province' will  meet with success. The bugaboo of  of infringement of copyright need not  be considered. J'he works of Shnpei-  peare, iMilliin and I'm lyle aro subject  to no such restriction anil surely  no one can place a copyright corral  round the good old Mile of three. The  books al present are iiiisiiited.iii many  iv.iys, for (he education of tin: children  of this province; and the absence of  local colour and iiil'oiiiiiition raises in  l heir undeveloped minds n restricted  opinion of liritish Columbia'.** re*  soiiifcs, Ihe rc-ult. of which must bo  injurious. Wc have educators iu  this province who could produce the  elementary lest books necessary, and,  by the dissemination of facts unknown  to publishers in the east, instil in the  minds of our children a proper pride  iu Jji'ilish Columbia.  The only obstacle suggested having  any weight i.s the quest inn of expense,  but surely when millions are available  for fake, railroads, a little of the  golden stream should lie diverted to  the cause of education. If it. be found  impossible at present to provide text  books absolutely free, the Department  of Education should make an organized effort to arrange the distribution  of school honks at" much less cost than  at present, At the Coast such books  may not be dear, but in lhe interim  frequent changes in the text IjooL.**  rcqiiit'cd, make the purchase of same  an unuecoseaiy burden on the pooler  classes of piirenls.  for. as, owing to the large number of  witnesses lo be Called, it* is deemed  unfair to sitdillu liamey, even temporarily, witli the costs.

"With the  dawn  of tomorrow coin-  niences  the   celebration  of   tbe most  solemn, and yet most inspiring, season  in the calendar of tho Christian church.  The   death   and rcssuiTection of  our  Lord have moved, us no other events  in   Jlis   earthly   life   have, poets and  musicians to  their highest efforts of  genius: and  the services,   more   particularly of the Anglican and Homan  Catholic   churches,   at    the    coming  season present  a wealth of devotional  verse,  wedded to immortnl strain*** of  praise, which   no other festival  calls  forth.     The   commemoration   of  the  sublime act   of  self-sacrifice   arouses  the highest and noblest feelings of our  nature: which, in the hurry of material  exigencies, are in danger of apathy  and final extinction.     Every cycle in  the progress of .time'acids a new chord'  to   the   pieon  of    the   ages,   and   its  ������t������rnal voice comes at this season as a  grand diapason from tht souls of good  lutn gone before, with the  message,  ������������������He died to save us all."'  THE   PROVINCIAL  HOUSE.  The Speech from the Throne cannot  be tlie subject of extended comment,  as the premier's well known vacillation  does nol rondel* the promise of legislation iiny surety of its performance.  The programme is a lengthy one and  our Victoria correspondent's forecast  was correct in stating it wa.s probable  thai, at the last minute. Col. Prior  would consent to introducing further  railway aid. "We see. also, that the  comfort of Mr. Dunsniuir will be  looked after and the family troubles  with old settlor.** on the K. A: N. belt  adjusted: there will probably be  money in it for Jim. The most  astonishing thing, however, is tlie  omission of any mention of the report  of the Smith Curtis commission. IMr.  McBride, on the opening day, asked  that* 1111110. bo presented and was  answered by the Premier that no such  report had been received. Comment  is unnecessary. In tha absence of the  report we are. constrained to suppose  that either il is unfit for publication  or that Commissioner Wulkein is so  slow that his name should he changed  to Gi'iiwlcm.

When fii-st the slogan of free* education   roused   the   ire   ot   those    who   d������s*nipd   knowledge   inimical _to    the  poorer classes, the" momentous power  of the movement was hardly recognized. It may be said that the Scotch  -wera the first people to lake up the  matter to any extant, as for more  than a century almost every family,  however poor, one smi at lea.sl received  ������n university education. But the  idea of brinfjinu education to nvery-  one's door and making it not the  fortune of a favored son, but the  birthright of the. whole family  materially changed the aspect of  affnirs. To-day, none arc so poor but  thatsn elementary education cannot  be obtained, and in most countries  attendance (it school up to a certain  age is compulsory.  A    natural   development   of    fiee  ���������education is the   movement   towards  providing  at   lhe public expense tin  tools necessary  to attain   that education,  in   other  words,   school   books.  And should not this be done ?.   Especially in a province like British  Columbia,   separated   by   the   width   of   a  continent   from   the   large   text-book  publishers of the Dominion, it appears  an   effort  should   be   made  in     this  direction.   The Government have,  at  Victoria,  a printing office splendidly  equipped and which produces work of  character  that makes 13. C.   governmental literature a standard  by which  other official reports are judged.   And  if such high class work is done for the  advertisement    of     our     provincial  resources,   would  it  not   be   well   to  ���������extend  the usefulness of   the  King's  Printer by placing  in his hands the  |Uechanical work necessary to provide  The Provincial Mineralogist has  visited ever}' section of the Province  but the Big Bend.

Smith, M.P.P., being a supporter of  the Government was decidedly premature. He will merely occupy the  position of the candid friend.

There is much cause for us to he  thankful ill the fact that His Most  Gracious Majesty King Edward VII.  has heen fully tes-tored to heallh, and  I am pleased that my First Minifcter  had the honor of heing present at his  Coronation.  Although some of the . lending  industries of the province have 11 r.-  l'ortuiiately, heen seriously hindered hy  reason of disputes hetween employees  of lahor and employees*, the past year  ��������� has h.een a fairly prosperous one. With  a view to oliviating and settling those  industrial differences in future, a  conciliatory measure will be introduced.  I congratulate you on the fact that  enquiries respecting settlement in this  Province are bo largely on the increase  and also that, as,a consequence nf the  movement uf population to Manitoba  and the Northwest Territories, which  is rapidly filling up and developing  that country, thc demand for our  lumber and fruit has greatly added to  the prosperity of these industries in  British Columbia.  Measures will he introduced for the  purpose of dealing with lauds in a  manner that will tend to encourage  immigration' of farmeiu and fruit  growers, and of satisfactorily adjust ing  existing liabilities for dyking against  lands within certain dyking districts.  Provision will he made, hy survey or  ��������� reconnaissance, for the more accurate  delimitation and lid ter knowledge of  districts available for settlement and  development.

It was  "     .funny to watch them dart through the  ���������water as quick as a flash.  The feathery outside gills were used  - "to breathe wi*h, just as fish breathe  ���������   -������������������with their gills, for these babies were  of the nature of fish now.

White children not only havo a greater standing  height than colored children, but their  sitting height Is still greater.

Klyda Richardson Steegc tells in St.  Nicholas a true story of the poet Wh it-  tier. The nursery was bright nnd  cheerful, she begins, and the iwo children were happy as they listened to  a kind voice reading to them. Every  day the same old favorites wero told  or read to the littlo listeno-s, who wire  never tired, but always asked for  moro. The stories wero all about fairies nnd elves, or boys nnd girls who  had distinguished themselves, or bravo  soldiers and noble heroes. And thc  poems wero everything In tho world  from Mother Goose to Shakespeare.  But tho greatest fuvorito of all tho  verses wero those which told about  Barbara Frletchle. You surely know'  lhem, and how when she, though old  and gray and feeble, rc'iiiiiij to tako  down her flag, and said as tho soldiers  marched through Frcderlckstown:  "Shoot, If you   must, this old   gray  head.  But spare your country's flag," sho  said.  And then how General Stonewall  Jackson treated her, and how her flag  waved the wholo day long over the  hoads of the .passing soldiers, not one  of whom uttered a word a^.i.nst it, or  its brave defender.  In tho old nursery, the children loved  this poem, and through It the author,  one of the greatest and host of men.  as well as a poet of whom our country Is justly proud. They talked very  often of Mr. Whlttier, and at last, 'one  of them evolved, wilh great labor, from  her childish brain, a little verse. It  was of little value, no doubt but she  was a small child. The answer to thc  enigma was the Quaker poet's name,  and so writing a timid littlo letter, tho  child Inclosed this first literary attempt and mailed It to Mr. Whlttier.  Then followed several days of suspense and anxious waiting. "Would  Mr. Whittier think it very strange  that she had written and would he call  her very foolish?" It was strange  how much she cared, but she was thc  kind of child who always did caro  about her own schemes rather too  much for her own happiness.  At last, one morning, the postman  brought a letter for this little girl.  Written In violet ink oa thin paper,  this Is what it silid:  Amesbury, 4th mo. 20th, 1877.  My Dear Young Friend:  I thank thee for thy little letter &  the Ingenious Word Enigma, which is  certainly very nicely done.  I am very glad thee and thy brother like Barbara Frletchle. I send thee  a piece of one of her dresses, given me  by Miss Dorothea Dlx, the lady who  ha3 done so much good In visiting hospitals and prisons.  With every good wish for thee I am  thy ,friend,  John G. WHITTIER.  The good poet never knew how great  was tho pleasure he gave to one littlo  heart that day; she has the letter  still, and the piece of silk from Barbara Frletchle's dress Is pinned to the  sheet, of noto paper with thi same, f :n  John Greenleat Whittler's. kind hand  placed there.  In the letter you notice the mention  of - Miss Dorothea Dix. Perhaps,  some day, if you have not yet done  so, you will read about her and learn  of her wonderful life and what she accomplished for poor prisoners and insane people, not in America only, but  in many other countries. Mr. Whittier, who himself was always trying  to relieve the oppressed and to help  people tn trouble, was her dear_fr:end,  and once, toward the end of her busy  life, when she had sent ,him some  words of appreciation, he wrote to  her, "Compared with -such a life as  thine, my own seems poor and inade-  guate." He was modest, you see, as  .well as great.  The little child who wrote the letter to the poet once saw and spoke to  this honored friend of his. She remembered the gentle hand on her  brown curls and the soft voice. Now  as then, there are always associated  in her mind, Barbara Frletchie, who  would not give up her flag, John  Greenleat Whittier, who wroto the  poem, and Id the midst of his manv  more Important affairs took time to  please a child, and Miss Dix, the noble woman who sacrificed comfort, and  home, and health, to relieve, as far as  she  waj  able,  the suffering  oi    the  .nOiiu.- ���������   YOUTHFUL EYES.

It is only within iho last thirty years  ir so that frogs were universally  mnsidered a delicacy, and until recently folks who relished snails were  ooked upon as little short of barbarians.  Chat notion has changed, however, says  'Leslie's Weekly," and at the present  lime not only aro snails served comraon-  y at all the cafes and hotels, but they  tro n.30 frequently seen upon tihe table  ������f tho ordinary laborer. So groat has  )oen tlio demand for this nutritious  ���������helled delicacy that during the past few  fears snail ranches have come into existr  nice, and arc nourishing in various ptir-  .ions of tho Western slope, and tho  ���������nrifty snail-raisers are realizing fair  neomes with little or no labor.

If thero arc a few  ihrubs or green vegetables growing In  **he immediate vicinity, il will not be  accessary to furnish food at all. The  iccomniodating creatures will take care  *>f themselves nnd will grow large nnd  plump in no time. In fact, ono could almost conduct a farm in an ordinary window-garden, so small a spoco is required.  Within a radius of ten feet, ten thou-  tand or more snails can visit their next-  ioor neighbors and gossip about their  somfortable quarters and tho broad expanse of their acres.  It is not a bad idea for a boy or girl  to start a snail or frog ranch, for anyone on a small capital can soon realize  in income without the work seriously interfering with other duties. Snails thrive  best in mellow climates with plenty of  fog or dew. Hie market price of the imported snail ranges all the way from one  dollar to two dollars and sixty cents, according, to size. The native. American  snail, that is, the wild variety, is not  .-dished hy tlie epicurean palate. In  spite of protracted boiling, it still remains tough nnd leathery, while on the  other, hand the foreign article will, with  very slight cooking, become tender and  ready to serve. .Frogs and terrapin require larger space and plenty of fresh  water. The ordinary frog ranch is a  cement pond about twenty feet in width  and thirty in length and perhaps three  in depth. This must be covered by a  stout wire screen to prevent the intrusion of tho various birds and snakes with  tastidibus tastes.

"I met Eugene Field  m one of his pilgrimages for old hot-  les, pewter ware, and any old thing  n the junk line. Some friends of mine in*  roduccd <oiir party io Mr. Field and Wil-  on Barrett and members of his eompa.y,  shen playing an engagement in New Or-  eans.

It spread all over the table  is she continued to unfold the enormous  iheet, and its rustle attracted the attention of nearly everyone in the room.  When it had spread itself all over Mr.  Barrett, who, meanwhile, was laughing  heartily, Miss Jeffries discovered the:  poem m Field's hand, and, although  blushing crimson, joined in the laughter, for she knew ho was somewhere  nbout, enjoying her discomfiture."  Origin and Antiquity of Billiards.  The origin of billiards, like the birthplace of Homer, or the problem of the  Sphinx, has ever begn a contested point.  Some historians suppose it to have been  imported from the Fcrsians during the  consulship of the Roman Lucullua. Others contend that the honor of introducing the game into Europe from the East  13 assigned to thc Enipeior Caligula. The  most reliable, at least the most plausible,  account of the origin and antiquity of  the game of billiards, is taken from certain parchment manuscripts, once the  property of. Sir Reginald Mortimer, who  was contemporary with Peter the Hermit, and who figured in the eleventh century, somewhere about the year 1085.  Sir Reginald was among the Knights  Templar who returned in safety from  the first crusade to the Holy Land, and  afterwards joined the second crusade, led  by Richard Cocur de Lion. It is known  that on the return of the Templar  Knights from Palestine the game, now  called billiards, was introduced by them,  arid was at that time considered not only  an amusement, but a means of preserving health, and to which the cloistered  monks of that period were permitted by  their superiors to have recourse. At this  lime it was not considered among the  carnal amusements by- the fountain-  heads and only sources of the Christian  f.iith. Anterior to this, if known at all  by the Romans, as is generally supposed,  it must have perished, together with  many other noble arts, on the overthrow  of their empire.. Though.cradled in the  monasteries, having been introduced into  Europe by the Knights Templar, the  game js supposed to have shared their  fate, and died out when the order was  overthrown'by the cupidity of European  monarchs. We next hear of the game in  the reign of Louis XI. of France, who  preferred this innocent pastime to the  bloody tournaments that were then so  popular with the court.  -It is said that the game, when introduced into France, became very much  improved upon the original crude game  imported from the East, and that during  the reign of one of the Henrys an artisan of Paris named Henri de Vignc was  commissioned by the King to design and  manufacture a billiard-table, with a bed  of stone, covered with cloth, having a  hole and hazard-pocket in the center, into which the balls were driven; this tabic  was to be appropriated to the use of the  Dauphin, at that time a lunatic at tho  Palace of Versailles.  ' The game was much patronized during  the reign of Henry III., ut which time it  received its appellation of "the noble  game."  FOLLOWING HIS NOSE  And you see where it's leading  hitr..

For the hapless and beautiful Mary  of Scotland she felt the profoundest pity,  which was at least equaled by hor strong  antipathy to Elizabeth.  Referring to this one day, the,Queen  raid:  "Once when I was about fourteen, and  my mother and I were at Margate, we  went on board a steamer.

Tlie Vulgar Voice.  What constitutes the vulgar voice? In  in article in the London "Spectator," a  writer concludes that this evidence of  vulgarity "springs, like almost all vulgarity, however displayed, chiefly from  two causes���������an undue love of conspicu-  auaness and an undue fear of the name,"  The person . whose chief aim is to keep  himself or herself in the eye of the world  rarely makes a remark without desiring  that it shall reach the ears of others be-  tides the one directly addressed; and  here the" peculiarly false sound of the  roice is attributed to the absence of  singleness of motive. On thc other hand,  the wavering tone and affected accent of  the timid vulgar are ascribed to another  form of insincerity, namely, the wish to  imitate others with whom one happens  to be, when they are of a supposedly  oigher social standing. Tlie attempt is  sure to fail, and the result only in the  suppression of all evidence of the speaker's own personality���������in the voice as  nell ns in the manner. Thus sincerity,  paramount in all art, is basic in breeding  ts well, which is the art of life.  They Toasted Bun.

C.P.R ,  Revelstoke, B. C.  DKAlt Silt:  Thu statement having been made to  me that failure ou the pint of your  company to come In some undi'i'St,.Hilling tit an early dace wilh certain of  the men employed at the local shops  would result in the closing antl removal  of the shops, I deem it my duty, as  President (if the Board of Trade, lo  enquire whether such action i.s  seriously ctmtemplaled by your  management. The closing of your  company's works here, would be disastrous to lhe business interests of  Revelstoke. and I deem it. within the  province of the Board of Trade lo look  into a matter of such vital importance  and take such action therein as is  calcnlaled to conserve the business  interests of the town. The favor of  an early reply will oblige,  Yours truly,  Gho. M, AIi'Caktkr.  President,  In his reply to this letter Mr. Kil-  putriek staled that owing I o frequent  labor troubles'among a small section  of the employees iii lhe shops il, had  been decided that they should be  closed if the disputes were not, discontinued. He had been compelled to  recommend this course in company  with other local officials.  President, McO'trler said the st.nlenient as to the closing of the shops  was first made to him by a pel-son in  authority in the company, and it was  rigiit that the business people should  see if they could settle the matter. It  did not niatler who was wrong in ; the  strike, perhaps both were. He did  not, Iio wc ver, consider ..I lie threatened  removal a Mult', as Mr. Kilpalrick  geiiernllydi.il what he said'he would.  He hnd put the question straight and  had an auswei iu black and white. It  was now up to the Board to see what  could be clone. It appealed thai,  iindtr present ciniinistiiiu-i-'s, the  company we're the heaviest losers, and  'if'smell conditions continued it would  be cheaper to move. Men were beini;  paid to stand idle in the shops and no  work could be done owing to the  absence of helpers. He was satisfied  tlie rumor was not an idle threat and  he. would recommend that a commit tee  lie appointed to sue if the difliculty  could be adjusted.  Mr. L*"wis explained that there was  u difference m' opinion regariling the  stale "of! affairs elsewhere: Mr. Kil-  patrick has, staled tliat this was tin*  only point 'where the mechanical sin tf  was not working. Mr. Sibbald said he  understood that was ths'case, but Mr.  Hn^gen said such opinion was an  erroneous one. The condition of  affairs was similar* at other points.  He also mentioned Ihat a committee  of citizen.*- had met on Friday and after  ���������"colng into the matter bad decided '.hat  the local biacksmiihs had taken; the  right course in refusing to work with  other than their old helpers until the  trouble was set tied. A 'general discussion followed ns to the posilion of the  company and the strikers, Mr. Haggen  stating that he had been advised by  Sir Wm. Mulock lh-tt the Deputy Al blister of Labour would be free after  Friday next to take up lhe niattei.  Dr. Cross pointed out that a peculiar  condition of affairs existed in the local  shops. Although the boilei nnikcis'  helpers wer������ ont on strike, lhe boilei-  makei:*, having a contract wilh Lhe  company,-were-s.ttislied Lo wcrk  'any helpers whether union  On the other hand, the local blacksmiths had no union but I heir helpei s  belonged to the L'.B.R.E. and were on  strike. Tin* blacksmiths had. under  Iheoi-lrlei'sof tlieir International Union,  refused to work with helpers, union (*���������!���������  non, until the strike was over. The  machinists too, Llieyliops having been  declared fair, were willing to work  with.,-iny class) of lielpeis. This showed  diametrically oppuserl opinions among  the men ihi-iiiselves.  .Mr. H A Brown, pointed out that the  CP It did not. con.sult the convenience  of any ei-'iriniunity hs to the locution of  their "shops. They closed out at Donald  and came to Revelstoke   to suit   their  own purposes. He was not particularly  iil'iaid of the threat  as it'was impos-si.  hie to lake a big engine from Kamloopn  to Field wiihout, c"hang:ng.   Of course'  a lot of work that had bei-elofrire been1  done here would   go   to  Neliibn when  'the new.-shops*.I here were built, but so  long   as   the   O  PR bad a main   line  -tunning  through     Revelstoke     train  sheds and probably repair shops  must  be    maintained   heic.     'If   the Board  could get  a   committee   and persuade'  either the C P   K   or   the  strikers lo  change their position  it would be.veiy  advisable but  ho did   not see ho'iv'thiA  conlrl   be  done.     He  did not  believe  much in the throat, anyway.  ' After sonic fiut her debating pro and  con l lie foilowingresnlul ion was passed  on 'motion of Mr. J. D Sibbald seconded by   Mr.   Linvis,   "That n, committee  consisting of Messi's.MiCaitcr, Haggen  and Brown be appointed   to   interview  the commit Lee of ��������� -local   blacksmiths as  to I h������   position   they  assume   in   the  strike, viz., wh-'ther they would iefu.su  to work wilh cither union or-iioiiSuiiinii  helper*   other than members ol" the U  B.. R,   E., quite   irrespective  of    the  rmisus which   led the local helpers to  strike."  A leommuiiienlion   was   rend  from  the   Deputy    Provincial     Secretary,  nibitnition and stating same would  bf In ought to the alteiuioii of the  Minister.  Owing to the urgency ol' tho proposed removal uf the simps the  special I'liiuuiittee were iciini'sted to  report Tuesday evening al tbe wiine  time and place anil the meeliug then  adjourned.  On Tuesday afternoon the committee  visiti'd the local shops aiul had a  conference with the blacksmiths but  without success. When Ihe adjourned  meeting wns failed to order Mc-sr*..

Mr. McCarter, Further reporting,  slated thai. Ihe blacksmiths seemed to  consider the chief trouble was discrimination by lhe company against  members of lhe U. B. R. 10., which  question lhe C. P. R. hail .refused to  submit to arbitration. The men were  ashamed.to be standing round doing  nothing, owing lo tliu absence of  helpers, and had requested -Iho Loco  Foreman to permit them to leave. The  company, however, had asked lhem to  stay, which they were doing for the  present. It also appeared that the  blacksmiths were endeavoring to get  all thu helpers in the same organization as Lheinselvi'S. which' would  obviate further trouble, ns both would  then be working under schedules'  which had worked well with the other  unions.  Au interesting fact disclosed at the  meeting was that the 'proposed arbitration engineered bv'Ali". E.A.Haggen  was all under a'lnisappielu'iisioii. This  "���������entlemen h.ul staled publicly that he  had been empowered by Messrs. Mar-  polennd Grant Mall to say the com  pany were willing to accept arbitration  by Wm. Whyl.e, of Winnipeg, and  the Deputy Minister of Libor.  Accordingly. Mr. H-iggen had written  andi oblaii.ed.lheconseut of Mr. Estes  and four unions in the proposition. He  had also coiiiiuiinicaleil with Sir  William Mulock iinil obtained liis  consent to Air. King's - acting.'' The  whole ait'uir was, however, iiinistiike,  as boll) of the company ' otlicial*-*  concerned absolutely deny Unit they  accepted .such it pioposal and state Lhey  were talking of a past oiler made l'i  some of their striking employees in  Vancouver before Mr. E-tes appeared  on the scene. ���������  After further discussion, in which  al.l l hose',present appeared t.o realize  Llie gravity "of Lhe situation, anil  showed a desire to work iu the best  interests of Revelstoke, Ihe following  resolution was carried unanimously :  " Whereas this Board has lean-pcl  that certain employees iu thu C.P.R,  shops at Revelstoke. being members of  the Machinists'--and.Fitter.*'unions and  of the;Boilermakers' union, liaveex-  pies.-ed tlieir refusal tn work wilh  nelners who are nol nieinbeis of lhe  U.

B of R. E. who  were formerly emp'oyed as> black*  smiths' helpers bete, such iefus.il  being based upon instructions received  by lhem from their-lodge or union in  Vancouver:  "Resolved, that the Secretary of this  Board do communicate with the  Secrelaty of the Blacksmiths' union at  Vancouver and 'ascertain' why that  union assume a dilferent attitude in  this matter from that, assumed by the  Machinist.-;' Fitters' and Boilui-  makers' unions, especially in" view  of the fart, that these shops have been  declared 'lair" by the other unions: and  that thesecretiiryof Lhe hoard inform  Lhe secretary of the blacksmiths' union  at Vancouver that this enquiry is made  by reason of the fact that the failure  to effect nVi early ariangement with  the members of Hit* blacksmiths' union  in lhe CPR shops hare upon the  mallei" in question may result in tne  closing.of Ine said shops, thus working  serious injury to the business interests  of* Revelstoke."  , The meeting then adjourned to meet  at the call of the chair aflor a reply   to  wcrk���������wii h_' !-*1<?_ "["'"*   communication   had  been  menoi-i.Jt.t*"^:71"'*!
