MILLINERY AND   DRESSMAKING   P ARLO      i  ON SECOND FLOOR.  a  9  ���������*  YET ANOTHER  BIG SUCCESS  Was the Junior Conservative  Club's Concert on Monday-  Music and Song Splendidly  Rendered.  The   concert   given   by   the Junior  Conservative Club on Monday evening  was  an   immense success.   President  - Arthur Johnson occupied   the chair.  -A large audience attended  nnd thoroughly   enjoyed   1111     attractive   programme the choruses  being joined in  heartily   by   many  of those present.  We have not   space to give a detailed  -report,���������owing-to���������pressure-of���������other  matter, but can safely assert that during the coming  winter the club rooms  will he the favorite resort of  all those  musically inclined in the city.  The instrumental portion was contributed by Messrs. AV. A. and Hoy  Smythe, piano; Mr. Manley, violin nnd  Mr. Crick, harmonica. Kvery .selection was well received, encores generally being demanded and responded to.  Songs were given by Messrs. XV. ll.  Humphreys, J. E. Taylor, Thos. Melville. P. Murphy, W. A. Smythe, A.  E. Hagg. n and others all going with  a most satisfactory swing and Air.  Wilson'gave a western .recitation. Tn  the courso of the evening there were  three short speeches the first being  from the Conservative candidate,'  Thomas Taylor.  Water Supply.  As the result of the investigation  ordered by the city council,-Messrs.'.  D. Mcintosh and B. Gordon have  located a stream available for water  supply having a flow of at least 30,000  gallons per hour. Only a mile of ditch  will be necessary to connect it.,* with  the present system. The 'acquirement  of the water right in 'question, will  probably be brought up at thc council  meeting tomorrow evening. It would  prove a most valuable addition to the  water supply of Bevelstoke and remove  all anxiety as to shortage for a long  time. _  French Creek Gold.  E. A. Bradley came down from French  creek on Tuesday bringing with liim 15  ouncenofcoar.se gold obtained from his  properties there. Hc reports $150 taken  from one set of timbers which proves the  richness of tlio ground. The nuggets  brought down run from $2 to IjSt:* in value.  Wc hope Io publish 1111 article ou these  Valuable properties shortly.  IS RETALLACK  FORESWORN  Discovery Made That he Declared Intention to Become  United States Citizen���������Friends  Disgusted.  (Special to The Herald.)  Kasi.0, B. C, Sept. 20th.���������Great  astonishment is expressed that Mr.  John L. Rettallack, nominee of the  Liberal party of Kaslo electoral  district, did on the Oth day of July,  1809, declare on oath his intention to  become a citizen of the United States  nnd to renounce his allegiance to  Great Britain and swore to support  the constitution of the United Stales  and the State of Washington. Mttny  of the old time Liberals, who place  loyalty liefore party, are astounded at  this piece of news and consider that  Mr. Rettallack should repatriate before seeking the suffrages of a British  electorate.  Kaslo, Sept. 24.���������(Special)���������As the  reluming officer i.s not perfectly sure that  Retallnck's actions tomnrds becoming an  United Slates citizen deterred his nomination he decided to let the name of Ihe half  alien goon the ballots. If Rctallack is  elected, which appears impossible, the  Court will settle the question. But Hon.  R, F. Green will win easily.  Political Notes.  A correct list of nominations is given  on our editorial page, with the except  tion of last minute changes which  appear elsewhere.  Dr. Sanson thought discretion the  better part of valour.and let A. Mc-  DonaUT. Conservative, in by acclamation. Evidently the beating C. A.  Semlin gave him before  was  enough.  An authoritative statement as to  why W. C. Wells was unopposed  appears on our editorial page.  There will be a: sweet fight on in  Vancouver between the Socialist nnd  Socialist-Labour party. Bill Griffiths,  the hitter's nominee, v\vill|hnndle Mortimer and Stebbings without gloves.  It will be interesting to note the  outcome of J. L. Retallnck's candidature in Slocan now he is proved to have  foresworn his British allegiance.  Everything is rosy tor the Government.    Opponents' abuse proves it.  There's nothing but Taylor for this  riding.  A candidate taking the chair at his  own campaign meeting is unique.  That's where Bennett shows his ignorance. He made no friends by importing Bon. F. Wilson, the man who  throws ijllO bills round the hotels.  A MINISTERIAL TRIUMPH  ���������**'-l'^----,I-*^l*^^'1'**^l1>*-*H^'l'-,i|-|B^4'*|**-'(||^'<|-i  ���������l**^l ������������������'������������������������������������������������������S ���������.!���������"��������� ^F^***.^**^*  Hon. A. S. Good eve Cave an Admirable Presentation of the Government's Policy  Which Captured a Large Audience on Tuesday Evening. Thomas  Tayior Certain of Election.  The most unpleasant weather of  the season could not deter the citizens  of Bevelstoke from turning out in full  force to the political meeting in the  Opera House on Tuesday evening.  Not only the auditorium but both  galleries were well filled and, louse  the expression of a gentleman present  ���������"There's nothing to it but Taylor."  That the Conservative candidate  would win has been a foregone conclusion but Tuesday evening's meeting, the first real show of strength   of  all parties, gave evidence of his sweeping victory on Saturday week.     Hon.  A.S.   Goodeve   made   a   magnificent  ��������� ���������--   addiese.     He   did not devote his time j at Rossland he took  at all to recrimination   nnd  abuse but  in a manly straightforward way outlined the course which will be pursued  by the McBride administration.    That  such policy   suited   the   vast   bulk of  those   present   was    shown   by     the  vigorous applause which greeted every  pronouncement     of    the   Provincial  Secretary   and   there   was   hardly   a  dissenting voice   when   ho   predicted  the triumphant return of the   present  Government ut the polls. The surprise of   the   evening   was   the   poor  showing made by J. M.   Kellie.     The  sourness   of coining   defeat   was self  evident. He appeared not only disgusted with   himself  but  everybody  else and, like a Mr. Murphy who   was  going to do wonders in   Ashcroft, and  failed,   his   name   is   "Denis."       Mr.  Bennett, from his point of view, gave  a first class speech, but did not appear  en rapport with    the    bulk     of    the  audience     although     his    adherents  present   gave  him   hearty  applause.  There were a couple of tinges of unfairness in his remarks which lowered  him in the estimation of a large number present.     His  reference   to  the  position occupied by the   Government  in regard to Chinese working underground in mines was   most   unfair, as  was   conclusively    proved    by     Mr.  Goodeve, and also   the   hint   that the  Conservative Association -inight>*no.i.,  give  him"-his' "pound" of 'flesh" -_in  according him the full   time   allotted:  Also his charge that the other candidates* refused  to   meet   him   before.  They were invited  to  meet Rev.. Ben  F. Wilson, an alien and one having no  interests in British Columbia,   and he  cannot grumble  at  their  refusal   to  attend, a meeting when  the  Socialist  candidate   not   only    delivered    an  address but also   occupied   the chair.  Witli these opening remarks we   now  proceed   to  give   a  resume  of    the  speeches.   The chair was occuped by  PRESIDENT YOUNG  of the Conservative Association **?ho  announcedix.the programme of the  evening which was not objected lo by  any one present. He then requested  Messrs. Bennett, Kellie and Adair to  come on the platform which they did  amid the cheers of their sympathisers.  Mr. Young then-bespoke an impartial  hearing to all the speakers (Applause)  and at once called upon the Conservative candidate,  . THOMAS TAYLOR  to deliver the first address. Mr. Taylor's rising was the signal for an outburst of cheering and it was some  time before he was able to commence  his speech. He opened by expressing  his pleasure at the large number  present in spite of the inclement  weather and paid a graceful compliment to the ladies.���������-He���������uaitl-he proposed to deal with the questions of  the dav ns fully ns the time permitted  and also tliat Mr. Goodeve would deal  at length with the platform and policy  of the Government, which he wa.s sure  would satisfy the electors of-Revelstoke.   (Cheers.)  A great deal had been said regarding  the change in date of the elections but  there was nothing to show that any  injury hnd been worked upon any-  boily. In fact, it wns the course Mr.  McBride had pledged himself to before  the Legislature adjourned on ^ Kith  June. It was, of course, necessary, to  have time for the new voters' lists  being prepared and also to file any  objections lo names put on them. The  lists had been closed on August 14th  and the Courts of Revision held on  the 31st. The original date set for the  elections, 31st October, was fixed because appeals might have been made  against the decisions of the Collectors  of Votes. .It was, however, found  that no such appeals had been made  and the Government Was therefore  able to strike out the time required  for such fappeals and bring on the  elections at the earliest possible  moment. (Hear, hear.) There was  nothing extraordinary about the  matter. The Premier had promised  to bring on an appeal to the country  at the earliest possible moment and,  as always, kept his word. (Applause.)  Some papers at the Coast had claimed  the chunge of date would injure the  New Westminster exhibition, but was  not the restoration of stable government of more importance than any  fair. (Cheers.) Elections always  created an unrest and it wns better to  get them over in the shortest time  possible so that'affairs could resume  their normal condition.     (Hear, hear.)  Another matter which seemed to  worry the opposition somewhat, the  connection of the Premier with the  Columbia and Western scandal.but it  wits strange to note the "difference in  their opinions between the time the  Government was" formed arid now.  It was extraordinary that newspapers  and men who a few months ago were  friends of Mr. McBride should change  in this manner. Mr. Taylor then read  extracts from the Vanconver "World"  of 9th June and the "Independent" of  a few (lays later both of which were  highly complimentary not only to the  Premier but also the memhers of his  Government. Regarding this matter,  also, Smith Curtis was a strong  Liberal, but an honest man, and when  he gave an account* of his stewardship  occasion to ' say  t'.o present administration was  "composed of the best ��������� elements of  "Conservatism and the only way the  "Libe-tals could obtain power was to  "put up better men, which barred  "Martin and Mclnnes."   (Cheers.)  The position taken by John Oliver  was also indefensible. Orr 31st May he  had *xpressed his willingness to enter  the cabinet; jail 1st Junelieeoiiimonced  abusing the Premier and had continued doing so eversince. And why,?  On June 1st he found out the Premier  wns determined to carry out his  pledges to the Revelstoke convention  and form an administration on party  lines' whicli left John Oliver out in the  cold. > From that time there had been  a campaign of abuse which, however,  was doing those who used it much  more harm than good. '(Cheers.)  He would refer very briefly to this  matter as he hoped that' within a few  days Mr. McBride would be here to  speak for himself. (Applause.) On  3rd Sept. 1901, Mr. McBride had left  the Dunsiiiuir administration nnd that  for very good reasons. ...The Premier,  like, himself, had bepn nominated and  elected by the Conservative party  after a campaign ' against Joseph  Martin and his followers which had  resulted in the latter,;bcing defeated  by 31 in a House of 38.-. J, -There could  have'been.-nor.stron'gery.'letrunq.iation.'  (Hear.liear.) 'If-there had been no  .other reason Mr. McBride was justified  in, resignine whenTTaines Dunsmuir  formed a coalition with Joseph Martin  and took the latter's colleague, J. C.  Brown: into the cabinet. And his  course had been commended by the  country as well as that followed by  the speaker and other Conservatives  who went wich the present Premier  into Opposition.   (Cheers.)  As to Mr. McBride's connection with  the scandal, the evidence given before  the investigating committee was as  follows. On Aug. ��������� 10th, 1901, a dis-  cussijn took place as to the advisability  of transferring to the C. P. R.* some  lands in south east Kootenay in lieu  of those earned bv the Columbia and  Western railway. Hon. W. C. Wells,  then at the head of the Lands and  Works Department as Chief Commissioner, stated it was a good exchange and that the Province would  save 300,000 acres of land. The  Government was informed of nothing  else. W. C. Wells' department wns  the one dealing with coal and oil  lands and he should have informed his  colleagues of the great value of the  lands he recommended the disposal  of. (Applause.) There were other  preliminary discussions but nothing  else. On Aug. 15th Mr. McBride left  Victoria and travelled to the interior  being in Revelstoke on the 25th and  ���������Jill hT���������He-didnot return'to-Victoria-  until the evening of thc 2nd Sept. arrd  resigned at 10 a. in. the following day.  But the Minute in Council, although  dated Aug. 10th, was not signed until  the 28th and did not pass to the  Lieutenant-Gnvernor until after Mr,  McBride. had resigned. Did this look  like a strong connection with the matter? No, thero was apparently n  nigger in the fence which Mr. McBride  could explain if*, not prevented from  doing so by hisoath of ofllce. (Cheers.)  It was strange that the onus should  be placed on the present Premier.  The recommendation made by W. C.  Wells he took to be nil right, and if  McBride shared thc responsibility,  what about Wells ? Also Mr. Brown  who stepped in when Mr. McBride  retired. There was nothing in the  Opposition papers regarding these  gentlemen who wero certainly more  to blame than the Premier. (Applause)  Mr. Martin's course in the matter  also required enquiring into. In the  session of 1002 he took occasion to  discuss Bill No. 87 for an hour and a  half, and this bill gave the O..& W  the right to any lands in Yale and  Kootenay, including the lands in  question. But     fortunately    the  Government, owing to the efforts of  the Opposition, was unable to carry  out this scheme.   (Cheers.)  Regarding the Canadian Northern  charter by which it was pioposed to  build a railway from Yellowhead pass  to Bute Inlet, thence by ferry,to the  E. & N., and have its terminus in  Victoria. Assistance to the extent of  20,000'acres of land and $5000 in cash  per mile had been promised thus giving away millions of acres of the  people's land to MncKenzie and Mann.  What hnd the Opposition under Mr.  McBride done regarding this ? Thoy  fought the bill for over four months  and ftt lust the Government were  obliged to withdraw it. (Cheers,) As  a result another line would shortly be  commenced, the Grand Trunk Pacific,  without costing the province a cent.  That alone showed the late Opposition  had saved British Columbia millions  of dollars.   (Applause.)  An endeavour had been made to  saddle the present with the misdeeds  of past Governments but it was not-  just. They had all been composite and  supported by many Liberals. It was  not so. long ago since the Martin  Government too, and that could not  have been Conservative. The Premier  was.now appealing as a strong Conservative, with a strong administration  having the confidence of the counti y  and if he wns returned to power stable  government would be restored. And  he was sure the people would sustain  them.   (Cheers.)  As to Mr. Kellie, he had heen an  Independent often and now appeared  to he under the impression that with  Conservatives, Liberals, Socialists .���������md  Labour men in the field he, the lonely  Independent, would have control of  tbe House. But everyone knows Mr.  Kellie for years to be a strong Liberal  and why did he not come out iu his  true colours? Why did he accept the  endorsation of the Liberals? He  certainly was not following a straightforward course. ��������� (Cheers.) He had  nothing to say against Mr. Bennett  personally but was diametrically  opposed to his ideas which could not  bring prosperity to thc Province.  (Applause.) What was wanted was  capital and lots of it to develop our  mines, our fisheries, forests and other  industriesr The people did not believe  in the Socialist doctrine and he was  sure would not vote for its establishment. , He could, however, admire  Mr. Bennett having the* courage of  his convictions. It was different with  the Independents. They, had been  known'in Revelstoke before and no  one knew where to place them. ' (Applause.)  Turning to,the matter of appropriations Mr.Taylorgaveasuccint of statement, from "-official."..sources, , of'the  result of, his efforts., aud those of, Mr.  Kellie." 'The latter had "done nothing  for the Big Bend, andin his 10 years of  office had not done ' as much "as the  speaker in three. Something had  been* said about his not travelling  round. ' This was all clap trap. There  were officials entrusted with Government work and he was contented to  trust them. In conclusion, Mr. Taylor dealt briefly with his efforts to  secure two members for "'Revelstoke  riding in which he was backed up by  the present Premier and his cabinet  and .closed a splendid speech hy a  stirring appeal to the electors to  support Mr. McBride and stable  government. (Loud and prolonged  cheering.)  The chairman then called upon  J.  M.   KELLIE,  the Liberal-Litboiir-Independent single  man party candidate. Mr. Kellie  seemed somewhat dazed. All the  fighting vim of "Let'er flicker Jim"  had evaporated and it was with impatience the audience listened to his  wearying remarks. He said he proposed showing the chairman mid  others, then took a drink. He claimed  he had secured more money than Mr.  Taylor "had and pointed drnmaticnlly  to a portmanteau said to contain blue  books. Then he took another drink.  Then he told a story about a prospector nnd a hollow log and_ subsided  without-!! "word regarding whallio  intended to do if elected.     Then crime  ED.   ADAllt  who expressed his pleasure at the inception of party lines and paid a compliment to the Provincinl Secretary  who he hoped would fill his present  office for many years to come. (Applause.) The speaker then took up  mutters of local interest particularly  the Horne-Payne attempted steal of  wator rights and Kellie's connection  with townsitcs and the appropriations  for trails leading to t'lem. We regret  we have not space to give a full report  of his speech which was brim full of  information and bristling with fuels.  He was loudly applauded on resuming  his seat. Kellie tried, to butt in'another speech hut was promptly sat on  by the audience ��������� who insisted on the  programme being carried out as arranged. The chairman therefore  called on  J. W.'HKNNBTT  the Socialist candidate. Mr. Bennett  claimed that Socialist government  meant just government und that  many leading thinkers in all parts of  the world were Socialists, lie then  quoted from the Socialist platform the  statement that the only way to judge  of a law was to ask "Is it for tho benefit of working men*." If so pass it.  He then referred to the other parties  as Kilkenny cats and created a laugh  by a little nursery rhyme to this end.  Then came the usual claim that the  Social Democratic party in Germany  are Socialists which hns been so often  exposed. He tried to hedge round the  "revolutionary proletariat" of the  Socialist papers by saying that Working men included architects, etc. He  also spoke of the internationalism of  Socialism and claimed the right to  import as many paid agitators as he  liked because Pullman cars wore imported  without  dispute.

H. BENEDICT.  A  Thrilling Story of Love and Adventure.  tnaa evidently withstood tne assauitt  ���������f many years, aa nlso a liking for good  ���������plrlts, ot which it was much the fash*  Ion ot the time to partake freely. Ta  Introduce him without further words,  this old fellow was Carl Krum. and hli  special business lt was to have ln  charge a boat ferry that crossed tha  river at the landing: about a mile and  a half from the village. Thl������ ferry belonged to the mistress of TRolff House,  and the old fellow had from time Imme-  rmortal almost been In charge of It, and  constituted one of the family at RolfJ  House. He was not a frequent visitor  to the bar-room of Ronk's Tavern, and  ���������when he came it was generally the caso  that Bomothlng had happened that excited public gossip unusually or had  tome special interest to himself.  The group of talkers sitting abouj  ���������the room grew suddenly silent as tht  old man entered. A seat was offered  him. and he dropped quietly Into it,  and continued pufflng sedately on a  short pipe that was in his mouth.  After an Interval of silence, a short,  pursy little fellow, who was sitting with  liis chair tipped beside the emberlesa  fireplace, spoke up:  "Here's old Carl," he said. "He can  ������������������ell us all about lt. Now. let me state  ihe matter. I maintained that the old  lady was eighty-three; you all denied  It   Now, how is it, TMr. Krum?"  The old man took his pipe quietly out  -Of his mouth.  "She's eighty-three," he said, "and,  ���������he'll be ninety-three, if the good Lord  ���������������o will arrd my prayers are heard. But  What matters it. ye Idle gossips?"  "Exactly," continued the first speaker,  ���������without noticing the old man's rebuke;  "and that confirms what I said. 'Taint  -often, I tell you. that I make a mistake  In a person's age when they die���������that  Is, the old lady ain't dead yet, but  everybody knows that old Doctor Pronk  has given her up, and when he Bays  anybody has got to die. he generally  makes a sure job of it."  . There was some laughter at this poor  Jest, but it was interrupted by the old  man:  ���������That'i a fair specimen of the devil's  flvlt as well as the devil's manners,  ���������������r I'm no judge," he said. "It's not  --given to any human being to fix the  limit of a fellow creature's life; and, as  (or the good old Doctor, the only mistake he ever made was in not strangling some specimens of this ungodly  ���������feneration at their birth. Tet I fear  that lt ls only too true that Rolff House  ts to lose its mistress. TPve no romantic  fondness for the poor old lady; but-lt  ts a scurvy dog that will not fawn on  the hand that has fed it for years."  "You'll be provided for, Carl," inter-,  trupted one of the party.  "I have received nry full due," replied  the old mar.  "and expect nothing."  "Well, she ought to give you something," interrupted the landlord; "but  there's no telling���������she's a queer old wo  tnan."  "Queer old place, too," broke In the  little man again, who was evidently one  of the kind that like to do most of the  talking. "I don't wonder that anybody  Is, queer after living in it so many  years. Queer stories I've heard about j  tt. Most folks believe the house is ,  haunted; and I've heard that the olil  fellow who built it was a pirate, and  bad  no  end  of  money  ;s*t  Is such outrasf-cuiH liars as you and  your brother that l*-.i|i*..*=(* upon simple-  minded folk, and lend litem to bcllevo  ill of their iieltrlil'.'H'S.

This hit caused a roar of laughter and  the discomfiture of Mr. Sackett. But he  apoke up again:  "���������Well, let them deny lt who can,  there's queer things and queer stories  nbout Rolff House.   I don't suppose old  ���������carl will own up what Be Knows,  though, for the devil no doubt has put  ���������aim under bondu to keep the peacn  about the matter. Rut I'd like him to  tell me, if he can, what ever became ol  old Rolff?"  i The landlord here spoke up:  '' "That's a pertinent question," he said,  "Perhaps old Carl can answer it, or, at  least, give us a short history of Rollt  House. For my part, I should like to  hear* a correct account of its strange  history." There is no use of denying that  there is a mystery about the house. I  remember once myself seeing a strange  sight up there. I was coming by ths  house in the night���������a bright moonlight  night it was���������and when at a point o������  the road where I could see the eastern  side of the house, I plainly saw the figure of a man standing beneath one ot  the large windows. He was in the direct rays of tho moon, and I saw him  as plainly as I ever saw man. His appearance was that of a very aged man,  tall and stooping, with long white hair,  and dressed ln an odd costume. As I  was looking directly at him, he suddenly disappeared���������seemed to sink Into tlie  ground close to the house. I could  scarcely believe my eyes, but I am sure  I saw what I have told you; and, as  you may Imagine, I thought at once  of the story they tell, that at stated  times the devil allows old Rolff to visit  his money chambers. I suppose I must.  have been deceived In some way in the  matter. But lt would be Interesting to  know moro about Rolff House, and I  move that old Carl gives us its history."  "Ye������, yes, Carl," "Let's hear it. Carl,"  and similar exclamations were uttered  by a dozen voices, and chairs were  drawn up near where the old man wes  Bitting, for all knew that he enjoyed  nothing better than an opportunity, to  rehearse some favorite matter.  his sweetheart to this place. He had  really succeeded inwinnlngherheart.for  he wa.s handsome and well-educated,  and had a strong element of the heroic  ln his character. So at last the poor  artist was fain to give way, and cor*-  sent to a union for his daughter that lie  did not approve.  "Magnus Rolff. as he called himself,  was married ln due time to the fair  maiden of his love. In the heydey ot  his happiness, he resolved on building  the finest country house In the whole  colony for the keeping of his bride. So  Rolff House was built, and a wonderful  structure it was In the eyes of the honest burghers. All that Is really known  of the married life of Agnes Lebrun is  that she bore her husband two children.  a boy and a girl, and died. Magnus  Rolff lived on rome years aftor tho  death of his wife. He nsver filled her  place, which would seem to be good  proof that ho loved her truly. Somo  time after her death, however, he installed ln Rolf* House as its mistress a  sister who came from Europe. That  Bister is the present mistress of Rolff  House. She was th"n a young and  handsome woman, of line education and  great force of character, and she soon  Jjrew to have absolute control of RoliX  House and all Its Inmates.  "There   came   a   day   when   Magnus  CHAPTER IV.  "Well,-* began the old man. "T don't  mind telling what I know about the  matter, though I'm afraid you'll find  It rather a dry tale, with your appetites  all whetted for a recital of supernatural  doings. But It's a strange story, nevertheless. It was long, long ago, during  the last years of King George's war  with the French and Spaniards, that  there came to our village, then a mere  hamlet, a tall fine-looking man, richly  dressed, who put up at the little Dutch  Inn that stood on the very spot that  this tavern now stands. * He remained  (veek after week, and there wag brought  to him sundry heavy, iron-bound chests  containing goods of some weighty character. The curiosity of the good burghers was much excited about this mys-  he'd  made  by, > terlous personage.    He was fierce and  murder and robbery on the high soas.  After he built .the house, they say ho  had rooms piled''full of silver and gold.  Then I've heard he sold himself to the  .-devil, on condition that the money  ���������would always be kept safe In RolfC  House; and a good bargain he made of  It, seeing that the devil had hlrn safa  anyhow. But the devil came and took  him one fine day; and the money is  all In the house yet, and nobody can  touch it, they say, except they sell  themselves to the devil, too. That's  the story, and somo people believe It."  ��������� "Some people," Interposed old Carl,  ���������are born fools, and only fit to be gulled  by stories of ghosts and hobgoblins.

This man  gave his name as Magnus Rolff.,, At  times, when in his cups, ho would tell  the most frightful tales of bloody adventures at sea; so that ln time the  good people began to regard him as a  retired pirate, and this belief seemed  confirmed by the number of heavy,  strong chests he had brought with him,,  which no doubt contained the treasures he had acquired in his wl'.i. ad-  tures. As Magnus Rolff rather enjoyed  It to have the good people regard him  .wIth_dread-as_weir_as_admlraU_qn,_he,  It ls myself,  tor I  have  known vthem | _ ,..,,..���������,  these fifty years; and, M I am an lion-   ������ is to be feared, and so they have de-  ������st man and a good Christian, I pro-   scended to this day.  tiounce all such Billy tales but idle su- ,    "But  lt is  not  necessary  for us  to  perstitlons.     There's   enough   that   Is i credit them, so I will Hive you the real  Strange tnd romantic about Rolff House  -without peopling it with ghosts or  giving lt over to the possession of tho  Bvll One."  "That's all very well," here broke In  a new member of the circle; "but I say  It's good Scripture to believe in ghosts;  and If there Is any place that ls likely;  to be haunted, It is Rolff House. And,  as for the devil having a lease on that  Did pirate's gold, why shouldn't' he?  It's only claiming his own, and we all  know the devil is pretty sure to do that.  Por my part,  I believe  that all  ain't  history of the man as I have learned  it on the best authority. His real name  Was Rolff Van Buysen, and he belonged  to a wealthy family of Holland. His  father was a man of great talent, a  patron of the arts, and a distinguished  public man. But Rolff was a wild boy,  and, for some unknown escapade, he  fled the country and took to life at sea.  The  (Rolff  disappeared   from  this   vicinity,  and nobody ever heard of him again.  The  superstitious  said   that  the  devil  had come to claim him,  according  to  a bargain  by  which  he had  sold  his  soul  for the gold he possessed.    This  ls no doubt the story that our friend  Backett here would consider most credible.    For  my  part,   I  can  throw  no  lljrht on the matter.   He disappeared���������  that is    enough.    It was    certainly a  Btranga   matter;   but   such   disappearances are too common to call for any  superstitious explanation of them.   He  left without leaving any will, or directions for the disposition of his property.  His son had grown to manhood,, but his  daughter had died at an early age.   Tht  eon  married,  and lived with  his wife  at  Rolff House,  over which,  however.  Mistress  Van Buysen continued to exercise  unlimited   sway.    One  son  was  born to them���������the present heir, Claude  Van   Buysen   Rolff���������who   ln  course   ol  time   was  loft   an  orphan.    After   the  death  of  the  father,   it  appeared  that  by   special .deed   all   tho  property  had  been placed ln the hands of the aunt.  Mistress  Van  Buysen.     She has  lived  to this day, exercising complete sway,  at Rolff House.   There were, of course,  always queer stories about Rolff House;  and as she grew old and allowed the  place to  go somewhat to  decay, these  Increased, and took the shape that we  have heard here to-night.   Rolff House  is haunted by evil spirits, we are told;  old Magnus Rolff had sold himself to  the devil, and received his* aid in acquiring Immense stores of unhallowed  treasure; this treasure is protected from  all but one single member of the family.  who likewise sells himself to the devil;  and so Rolff House is given up to holt-  goblins and evil report.  "Well, those can believe these stories  who choose, I have received and hand-  eled considerably of money from Rolff  House, and lt has never burnt my,  hands or my conscience either. I know,  not how old Magnus Rolff made his  money, what murders or outrages he  committed, or how many harmless merchantmen he sent to the bottom. I do  know that at that time privateering  was a popular pursuit with our daring  sailors, and that many of them got rich!  without a suspicion of crime attaching  to them. It was a legal business, to  which they were duly commissioned:  and. there ls no reason to suppose that  Rolff Van Buysen was anything more  than a brave and lucky privateer captain. He probably spent most, of hla  money in dissipation and in the building of Rolff House, and the effort to  meet the expenses of a large establishment, and keep up appearances. I believe that financial distresses account  for his fljsht, and for all that seems  strange to the world In the history ot  RolfC House. Tou gentlemen are entitled to differ from me if you will. Of  course, I can't explain all the queer  sights everybody may have seen at tho  flead of night about the place. People  always will see strange sights around  a house that Is suspected of being  haunted. I don't believe any of thc superstitious stories about Rolff Hoi'.-**.  It Is simply a fine old mansion gono  to decay. I would that.I might live to  see It restored.. You have my story,  gentlemen."  The old man relapsed into silence,  and a general shaking of heads showed  that his story did not settle all doubts  In regard to Rolff House.  The landlord was the flrst to speali  up:  *=i!I**-th!nk-=youIre=aboiit=right>=Carl.^  he said, " In regard to the stories about  the old place. But I can't agree with  you that there has been much lack of  money at Rolff House. Why, the business and tenements alone must have  footed up large sums annually for these  many years. No doubt, the old lady,  has been close, and has a nice little pile  saved up for young Master Claude.  He'll scatter It, I'll warrant, spite of  Old Bootle and all his Imps But now  let's drop the subject. I suppose some  of you would like to keep up your  stories of ghosts and hobgoblinB. But  It ain't good manners, with that poor  eyes were small nnd why; and the  predion  was  that of restlessness  filsconiri'.r.  On a lounge in the office lolled the  younger Saybrook.

The elder Saybrook had Just entered  the olHee and thrown himself Into a  chair.  "Oh, 'j.i*v tired I am." ho whined,  as he -Mr-etched himself In his easy  chair.   "It Is always the old story with  mc work. work, think, think, till body  and brain are ready to give out:' But  I don't know as I should complain���������I  hnve had a good day's work, Ralph;  yes. yes. a good day's work."  "You have drawn up the will, then?"  suggested the young man.  "yes," was the reply: "It is drawn,  signed, sealed, witnessed and recorded���������  so thnt Job ls settled.

And I've  been by there myself at'nights, when  I've heard queer noises coming from  the house, and others have heard them,  too, and seen strange sights. I don't  know as it ls respectful to the old lady  to tell about these -.hlngs now, but 11  they're so, they're so, and that's all  there Is about It."  The speaker was a short, very peculiar-looking man. A heavy beard  covered his meagre face, and long  frowsy hair reached down to his shoulders, and hair and beard both seemed to  be of a dirty slate-blue color. His yellow skin appeared to have a bluish-  green tinge; his large, staring blun  eyes were as lustreless as the eyes ol  a corpse; and to add to his uncanny,  peculiarities, his voice had a strange,  ecphulcliral tone.  "A flne countenance you have for o  ghost story, Leb. Sackett," broke In lh������  aid ���������������vp, with a tone of contempt.   "It  and at last came to the colonies. ^ ^^ __  war with France and Spain broke out, I *,i,j"^oman lying up there on her death-  and he shipped in one of the privateers --     --  that sailed from our ports to prey on  the commerce of the  enemy.

It is true that some of these privateers were little better than pirates;  but tf young Van Buysen was guilty,  of any crimes against the innocent, no  one knows it now. The tales about  him that have floated down to our day  are the veriest gossip., But he gained  Tlohes by his adventurous life on the  high seas; and, once while in the port i  of New York, returned from a cruise,  an event occurred to him that decided  his future life. He met a fair maiden,  at the first sight of whom be was desperately enamored.  "He followed her up, discovered her  nam* and whereabouts, and resolved  on winning her.

AH knew the landlord to be a-man of  his word, and he was recognized dictator ln his own bar-room. So the conversation turned to other subjects, or.  |f the forbidden topic was discussed, it  ���������was in low and cautious tones.  CHAPTER V.  On the principal street of Voorhlsvillei  a little white house obtruded itself  boldly out to the line of the unpaved  eidewalk. Over the door, a small sign  bore the Inscription, "Anthony Say-  brook, Counsellor-at-Law."  Fronting on the street was the offlee  of Mr. Saybrook, and the rest^ of tho  building* was occupied by Mr. Saybroolc,  eon and housekeeper as a domicile.  Mr. Saybrook was one of a trio of  lawyers,  with   which   the  village  was  iitt_       .        . blessed,  for tt  was  the shire  town  ol  but 'found   poor   remuneration   ln   the i the section, and drew to lt whatever lit-  rude condition of the colonies and tho , Ration   the  quiet   farming   region   In-  lack ot public taste. But poor as he  was, his love for his daughter was  greater than his love of money. Ho  was angered at the attentions of tho  rich, dissipated sailor to his lovely  daughter, and, to escape thorn, he fled  with her from the city, and came to  thla lonely hamlet. But Rolff Van Buy-  son was not to be baulked. He ferreted  out   their   whereabouts,   and   followed  dulged In.  He believed himself to be a great  man confined to a petty sphere. In appearance, he was tall and rather lank.  Ills forehead protruded; his thin black  hair was sprinkled with grey, and* the  top of his head showed a small circular  bald spot; his nose was rather long and  sharp, and there was Just the sugges-  tinn ot a roseate tinge at the tip;  hi*  rttat is lornt satisfaction. In fact,  things worked as well a* T could havo  wished. I had some dlffloulty ln getting  the old lady to give up sor**-.* of her  eroohets; but I finally persuaded her  entirely to my views. But what is beBt,  I am myself made sole executor of the  (state. Now, 1 call that a pretty flne  stroke of business. It needed very  edroit working of the cards on my part,  but I flatter myself that I proved equal  to thq occasion.  "Of course,  the nephew  get* ���������very-  thing then?" said the son.  "Yes, yes; that was my chief point,  you know. The old lady's family pride  was all In the direction of giving tha  nephew everything; but she had some  queer motions, and It needed all my  finesse to induce her to dismiss them.  Only one thing troubles me. The money  Is not nearly so much as there was reason to suppose. This perhaps is not to  be regretted, for I see the way clear  ln consequence of lt for a very bold  stroke. But It Is queer���������very queer. It  ilir-iost leads one to believe ln the stories  of old Magnus Rolff's money vaults,  and their control by the Evil One. What  can the old lady have done with all her  cash? It Is strange���������very -strange.  Young Master Claude won't have anything like the money he has anticipated.  But there's lots of property, and he gets  it all. Now mark me. Ralph. I think  I see ln thin turn of affairs Just the opportunity I have always wanted. Thero  Is nothing nicer for a lawyer than the  handling of a big.property for a reckless young spendthrift. I have planned  to net the handling of the Rolff estate,  and I have succeeded. The fact ot there  not being as much money as I expected  Is really In my favor. This boy Claude.  I am certain, will be of a mind to spend  money freely. I have talked with him,  and he 1������ eager to come tnto his fortune  and has grand schemes of going to  Europe, and becoming a gentleman.  But the scapegrace won't have tho  money to carry out his plans. To gratify his desires, he must needs raise  money on the property that will be left  him. It ls a flne chance for good bar-  Fflne. With his Inexperience and confiding nature, he can be led Into almost  any kind of an agreement. I have his  confidence, I think, and lt will be  Btrange If there ls not an opportunity  afforded me for making a-very good  thing. Somebody is certain to take ad-  Vantage of him, and why shouldn't I?*"  "To be sure���������why not?" echoed the  young man.  "Very well put, Ralph," continued  'the elder. "There Is a very fine moral  point to consider ln the matter. A.s I  said���������somebody .will surely lake advantage of this young man. Who shall lt  be? Now a man of weak mind might  pause before taking advantage ot such  an opportunity. But why? It is plain  that the young fool Is bound to dissipate his fortune, and that it must of  necessity fall Into the hands of como-  body. I cannot prevent him doing It.  As executor, all I can do Is to advise  him. But advice, should I give it would  only be wasted upon him. His Is a nature not to take counsel of a disagreeable sort kindly. To give It, would  only be to Irritate him and forfeit his  confidence. Well, shall I foolishly undertake to curb him In his set purposes,  and thus forfeit his confidence, and allow some other and sharper person to  usurp my place as legal adviser and  reap the fruits of the transactions that  there will be an opportunity to arrange? By no means. I can see no, In-  .frjLetlonTjjf^thejno  a case of this kind. It ls one of the  legitimate perquisites of the legal profession. I can't help 11 if the young  man throws his fortune away. I would  be lupremely foolish not to pick up  what will naturally fall to my share-.  It is thus that Fortune restores a prop*  cr equilibrium, and decrees that thc unworthy shall not long retain the possession of her favors. Do you see tho  point, Ralph?"  "Yes, father, I think I'm equal to seeing the drift of your argument," replied  the young man.  "Well, Ralph, I'm glad, of lt. I'm  rather proud of your intelligence.

THE NEW MlNIS TER
British Columbia is to lie (.���iingratii-

(Sooilc-vc* as. I-'rdvinciiil .Sec-i-clai-y.     A
successful     business    man,    identified
with   liusslaiid   practically   since   its

Goodeve is a man of ster-ling'integrity,
great exocutivc- ability aird as a, public
speaker lias few peers in tire Province.
IIi.s selection is not pnly a compliment
to Kosslarul  but   to   the   .Kootenay.s
tjenerally as we now have  two  ministers   from   the  district   east   of    the
Colurubia   one   from   thu    .silver-lead
country   in..the person or" Hon. ]{.-.P.
Green and one from'tho copper-gold
zone rii the newly appointed   Provincial Secretary.
The "Premier is deserving of great*
praise in making the .selection he has
done, which will strengthen not only
���the 'Conservative party, but that stable , t*0(.;;l*
government the maintenance of which
he has so much at heart.
RE W. C.  WELLS.
iidlliing Id say against him personally
lint regret liis alliance with the Socialist party, lie is an earnest* student of
sociological questions hut has, unfortunately, only studied llicni from one
side. 'We venture 1,0 predict that lie
will follow, in the space of 11 few years,
the Cdtn-se pursued by ilei-t-Itieliter.
Like the great German .statesman
mentioned 'found when writing his
"Visions of the Future." Mv. Bennett
will discover for hiinscll'tlie iijhei'ent,
impossibilities of the Socialist cult and
again ally himself under the bannerol:
llritish progress
"Where freedom slowly brondensdown
Krom preeedcni 10 preeedenl."
Revolutions are undesirable. Abraham Lincoln's motto: '-Bu sure you're
fight., then go ahead," i.s the -proper
one to follow and ill*. 13?nnett is too
sensible-'a. man to permit himself,
(when the excitement of the campaign
is over and. lie- returns to liis cigar
store*,) to be carried away by the
theories of a cult the ablest exponents
of which do not know where it wi 11
lead theni. Many 'other men have
passed through a. similar experience,
j M.v. Chamberlain was. ill. one time,
j practically" of (lie same mind with lire
Democratic party- in Great
Britain today but* realized, before it
wns   loo   late',   that   the   end   meant
liam Alfred Galliher, of Yale and
Cariboo. Being well esteemed by
i'naiiy the man fronr the far slopes of

Air-. Bennett will eventually realize
(liis also. irr the 'meantime ivu must
give liinr an opportunity to digest the

hia. ft is easily explained. Assertions J ,Uw ,*ll(.y. ol- (hc electors i.s plain,
have been made, particularly' by J. II. f i*,.^.;^*, Columbia wants stable gover-n-

i The Socialists themselves admit their
time i.s not yet. Tlrcr'cfoi'e tiie only
thing to do is to support, the party
tliat alone has the power to end the
political unrest tliat has retarded the
province for many year's. .And that
means support the present Government. The cabinet is com posed of
men high in the esteem of the electorate. Once the bias of party foall.y is
removed thy is a st-llT^ivjdetirt^ct..
TCniI, after-ail. (Tfu-s
v.'ho   is   in   power'
lit. M011. Joseph Chamberlain's
resignation was not rrnexpeeled, as
the well known inflexibility of purposes
of "pushful Joe" could not permit him
to bo a time serving minister in the
British government. He has the new
evangel of..imperialism to preach and
could only properly carry on his propaganda when free fro 111 the U-iiiuineJ.s
of ofliuial veUcenuo which are much
inoi'i; strict in Great Britain than any
other part of the JSinpirc.' That his
ideas will, irr the end, be accepted by
tire British electorate wo havo. not the
slightest doubt.' There may be a time
of waiting but; an ultimate "triumph;
for Iiiipet-i.il preference is assured.'."
Canada is largely interested in the
momentous 'fiscal discussion about to
be instituted in tlie Old .country and
the news (hat JMr. Chain bei-la.iu intends
to visit (he Dominion must be a source
of pleasure. When he does come, it
will be the duty of the Conservative
party, that Iras stood by protection as
tire policy of self preservation for so
many years, to extend to him 11 welcome sueh as is the just reward due

'i'liiunas Taylor ha- beer, norninatcd

Government, and suliser-ibes to the
Conservative jilatform in its entirely.
This earmarks him. There is no ne-
(���es.-ity to ask how he will vote on this,
that, or the other matter. In this
respect* lie is dili'ereiit from the olhei-
candidates.
.Mr*. Keliie is posing as an Independent, in ol her words a political Ishrrrael-
ite- his hand against every man and
every man's hand against him. lie
supports no party. He refuses to snli-
f-ribe to the most important, plank iu
the Liberal platform, that advo-'ating
compulsory arbitration. ilis erratic
course when in the Legislature, particularly his attempted betrayal of lhe
���Seiiiltn government, stamp him as an
unsafe man unless ijed down seeuicly
to a set of rigid principle.***. And even
then lie would be untrustworthy as
his previous conduct proves.
.Mr. Bennett is. we believe, honest at
(his time   in   his opinions.    We liave
it matter so much
so long as we arc*
wisely governed. Tn this riding there
is no Liberal candidate. .Mr. Kellie
merely represents himself. It. i.s lire
duty of true Liberals l.o defeat his intention of renewing personal representation and we believe that; a large
number of that party's adherents will
do so by supporting .Mr. Taylor, In a
few years the Liberal party here will
right, il-elf. I'ntil then wh.il. is there

EVERY young m.in wants to succeed.    IIow?    Obviously the way to leam is to
study the methods cf men wiio havo succeeded.
Guides to success are many. What do they say ? I3e honest. Tell the truth.
Work hard. Save money. Bo S20 worth of work for wages of $5. Such advice
is good, no doubt, as far as it goes,���but is not something more needed?
Did these methods alone muke IlrLLis, and Uok, arrd Keed, and CARNEGIE,
and CriKTis, successful?
Young men are not fools. They see that there is a secret of success, and
that it is more than honesty and hard work, else every honest hard worker
would be successful.
The secret lies in controlling; tire minds of men. How to make others believe
you, trust you, and do what you wish,���this is what you must learn. To be sure,
few will learn it but those who also work hard and tell the truth. These come
first,���but tliey are not all.
As a guide to the highest success, -.'Modern- Eloquence" has no rival. Itis
a splendid series of object-lessons by masters in the art of influencing men's minds.
Arrd the success aimed at is far more than mere money success. Fame, power, honor,
the gratitude .-.nil love of generations to come,���these are the rewards which have
sj)urred to srrch efforts the men whose words are gathered in these ten rich volumes.
In " Modern Eloquence," the men who lrave won success in every line speak
for our instruction:��� �� )
In Law, there are Evarts and Phelps, both the Choates, Coudert, and David
Dudley Field. ������-���
In Journalism, Dana, Halstead, Watterson, McCIure, McKelway, and
Whrtelaw Keid.
In Politics,  Cleveland and Harrison, Ulaine, and Conkling, Sumner /4,
and Seward ; we listen to the eloquence of Gladstone, then to that of his   X*
great rival, Disraeli. /o j
In Literature, we have thc best thoughts of Dickens and Thack-  /a. /ivmJ
crny, in contrast wilh the more modern humor of Howells and Mark   /**/
Twain; or Carlyle, Kroude, and Morley speak to us from across the f^ff   & FINE
sea, for comparison with our own Emerson and Curtis. /*/ PORTFOLIO
Among the heroes of War are Grant and Sherman, Sampson ff*f HAHED FREE

Wilson then gave a "l;*>-  niiriirto speech dealing succiritly with  the, various candidates before the public at the coming election. His remarks  ���������were frequently punctuated with  applause and many are looking forward  to his dealing at greater length with  the egotistical '*!" of Kellie and the  inherent inapplicability of Socialism  to British Columbia.  Then came the bonne bouclie. Mr  XV. H. .Humphreys sang a couple of  new campaign songs and created such  enthusiasm that today t hey are being  sung all over town. Revelstoke .should  be proud of having it" basso of his  calibre, in the city.  After this the lloor was cleared for a  social hop, in which about thirty  couples took part. And they all had a  Jlrrst class time. Waltz. "���������Zwui-.st-.'p,"  schottische. quadrille and lancer's  followed one .-mother irr rapid succession and when tho final ���������'Home Sweet  Home" wait/, was played it was with  reluctance that the large gathering  dispersed.

The concluding three  cheers for Tom Tay la r, enthusiastically  joined in by the ladies, was a litting  end to a most enjoyable evening.  There will be anotht-r session of the  club tomorrow night when another  little fillip will be giverr to Taylor's  majority. The young men are doing  good work whicli will be recognized on  October ',lvcl. And no one want's to  forget tomorrow evening. She'll be n  hummer.

Mr. Fax's reputation, no doubt, had  a potent influence in drawing the surprisingly large audience which at the  AVinnipeg theatre last night so waviuly  greeted him���������either that or the palmy  days of'the concert entertainment are  n: turn ing.  This big house at thc start o'- a new  season is sure to be regare'e 1 by concert promoter j as a hopeful sign���������and  the only*'thing thai causes me any  alarm is that Toronto "managers" will  hasten now to Iitmd us more of tin se  counterfeit "entertainers" who in pnst-  sea.ons have murdered thc goose that  lays the golden eggs.

He may not, in this line, be the peer  to his brother Reuben, w! o in character portrayals has (ouched the  height of greatness, but* his work nevertheless is marked by an earnestness  and sincerity that entitles him also to  a high ranking in lis profession.

To be brief Mr. Fax fulfilled all the  promises of his loyal exOntario admirers here and lie aeti.i illy surprised  those who, un acquainted with his versatility and talentsT, were l.ot prepared to find an artist of hiscalibrc.

Commencing: "M'y Dear Balfour,"  Mr. ('IrambiM'laiii sets fnrth his reasons  fnr his resignation. An extremely  interesting purfc of the lei Ier i.s the  following st.'itcinant "concerning a preferential tariff.  "Por-the    present,   at   any  rate, a  preferential  agreement  with our Cnl-  osiies,   involving any new duty, however small, on nrliclus of food hitherto  untaxed,   even   if   accompanied  by  a  reduction   on   other  articles  of   food  equally universal in their consumption,  would berin-nceeplable to the majority  of the constituencies.    However much  we may regret   the  decision, however  mistaken   we   may   think  it, no good  government  in  a democratic conn try  can ignore it.    1 feel,therefor, that, as  an   immediate.' practical   policy,   the  question of preference to the Colonies  cannot   be   pressed   with  any h  success at the  present  time, rtltl  there is a very strong feeling in favor  of   the  other branch of fiscal leforni,  whicli would  give  fuller discretion to  the Government   in   negotiation with  foreign   governinent-i   for   a   free exchange   of   commodities    and   which  would   enable*   our  representatives to  retaliate if no concession was made to  oar just demands.  ������������������If, as I believe, you share these  views, it seems to ine that you will be  absolutely justilied in adopHng them  as the policy of your Government,  althoughit will necessary involve some  changes in its construction. As .Secretary of the O'.'louies during (he  last few years, 1 have lx on  in a special sense, the representative of the policy of a closer  union, whicli I firmly believe to ,ba  equally necessary irr the interest of the  Colonies and ourselves. 1 believe that  it is pos-siblo today, or may be possible  tomorrow, to make arrangements for  such'a union. I have had unexampled  opportunities of watching .* events and  appreciating the feelings of our kinsmen beyond the seas. I stand, therefore, in a dill'eie it position to any of  my'colleague.**, and' 1 think Ihat I  should justly be blamed if 1 remained  in oli'rce'arid thus forma'ly accepted  the exclusion from my political programme of soiinpoi'tiiutn parti hereof.  I think, that with absolute loyalty  to your Government, nt.d with no fear  of cnibiiirasing it in any way. T can  lust piorriote the cause 1. have at heart  from tiro outside, arrd 1 cannot hut  hope that in a perfectly independent  position, many arguinenls may be received with less prejudice than would  attach to those of party leaders.  Accordingly 1 would suggest that you  limit the present policy of the. Government to an assertion of our freedom,  in the case of nil relations wilt foreign  countries, and that you should agree  to my tendering my resignation of  my pre.-cnt oflice lo His Majesty, and  devoting luyself to the work of explaining anil popularizing these principles of Imperial Union, which experience has convinced me arc essential  to our "uture well'aieand prosperity."  Mi: Chamberlain also points out the  rnyielding opposition of the Jjiberal  Party, which scouted the idea that a  systeiii generally accepted in lSKi  could possiblv require modification in  11103.  Ue goes briefly over thc same ground  regarding the position as did Mr. Balfour in his recent statement.  NO'i'lci*:.  Noliei.' is lion-by Hiven that thirty .lavs .*ifi.*i*il:n.

"I am sorry," 1 replied, for lt had  tbeen the dream of my life, "but since  any mother wishes me to take holr  .���������orders and follow in my father's, steps  0 am content to do so."  "I think it Is perfectly hateful to  draTe to etlfle one's Inclinations and do  ���������things one doesn't w.'ni to do."  And then Charles falconer came  .-through the gate and crossed the lawa  Co where wc were.  Five years passed ore sho and I mot  r.gain, aud thin���������tn *-ir"- had prophesied���������I wa.s a curate iu a London  pariah. During these years, loo, her  "���������(-ther had died, n:*.l she resided ia  ���������Brighton with u relative*.    ._.  U wns not often I took a holiday,  "Cut one afternoon a great pianist was  .giving a recital at St. James's Hall,  and 1 went to hear him. When 1 had  been seated some minutes a very beautiful it oni an passed me so closely that  Ther dress brushed against mo, and my  "heart gave a wild throb, for I recognized Rosemary.  Rosemary turned her head and our  eye6 met. I thought she seemed glad  to see nre. and remembered also. I  ���������waited for her when the recital wan  over, but could only get a few words,  for her compan,lon���������the relative with  ���������whoni sho lived���������was in a hurry to  keep some appointment.  The following afternoon I called at  -the address she had given me. but saw  little opportunity for conversation,  the drawing-room  was so crowded.  As I entered Rosemary wai*talking  to a tall man, a little a.������art, and I recognized Charles Falconer, or, to bo  exact, Sir Charles Falconer, for he  had come into the baronetcy. I think  he was not overpleased, but I read  my welcome in Rosemary's face.  On returning to my rooms 1 found  a m**sscnger, who begged I would go  io sec a dying woman, and I lost no  time ln complying.  Tha end was near and I remained.  Riving what consolation I could. Her  last words wore, a message, and as it  was evident she wished me to deliver  Jt I bent my ear to her lips.  "I forgive," the whispered, "tell  .film;" then in answer to my look of:  inquiry she spoke a name clearly:  ."Sir Charles Falconer."  1 learned her story afterward from  lhe broken-hearted sister who was  present, or at Teast such of It as* she  knew, for they had been sparated  come .years. There ' is no need to  speak here of the pitiful life that was  now i-n God's keeping; but I deter-i  ���������mined to see Falconer at once*���������for 1  learned also from this poor woman  that he was to he married to Hose-  cary. "���������'���������'*,'.       .'.'*--���������������������������  Sir Charles occupied a handsome  fuite of rooms in Sackvllle Btreet.  As shortly 'as possible I spoke ol  the poor girl I had left, and he turned, I fancy, a trifle pale. As I finished  Tbe said, moro gravely than I had anticipated, and I begun to hope his  .heart was touched:  "A sad case. Damer, but a common  ���������oae, and one that concerns me less  than you appear to think.

Mary Hart was the only daughter o?  the widow of Colonel Hart of the Indian service.  The colonel had been both sol*:"!er  and business man, and when he had  been killed in a jungle fight, soon after.  Mary's birth, he had left his widow a  comfortable income.  She had come to America and settled in one of the quiet New England  seashore villages in a cosy cottage ; d-  jolning the estate of Mrs. Dolton. wTio  was an old school friend. The youns  people had grown up together and ha J  heen friends since childhood.  Tom Dalton, a happy-gor.i:-;,/  young man, had .inherited an independent Income from his father, cud  ���������now, havirg passed his finals at the  law school, was about to practice his  profession in Boston.

"I will not stand aside until I havo  your   word."  He raln-d his arm to strike me and  rr.y fist shot out, catching him full  "between the eyes, so that he tell like  a log at my feet.  At the end of the summer I was offered the curacy of a large parish !n  "Manchester, which I accepted. I could  not leave London without bidding  TKosmnry good-by. and I longed to see  Ier again, to hear her voice.  And so I went, and this time sha  tras alone. I think wc both felt ill at  ease, as though an unspoken thought  7?y between us. As I bade her adieu  I thought she turned pale, and the  hand I held in mint' trembled like an  Imprisoned bird. But I dared not  ���������Eppak of my love: I felt in honor  hound to wart awhile. As I reached  the door her voice stayed my steps,  and I turned quickly with rapidly  Seating pulses.  "Basil," she said softly. "Basil."

T,,ey  iwouid;   tbat   te,   thu   young   people  ���������would, and Mrs. Hart would watch tha  eport from the beech.  Once in the water, Mary's spirits  6eemed to be bubbling over, and sho  .���������was soon daring Dalton to try a race.  to a dory moored a short distance from  the bench. He seemed reluctant at  first, and was sure it was too near the  current of the rilhway, but to" take a  dare from Mary and have her taunt  him with lack of courage was too  ���������much for a young man of his temperament.  Sho was wading toward tho boat,  and whon but a few strokes from it,  called back, laughingly: "Will you  swim for lt, Tom? If you reach It  first I'll be your prize, sir."  Ho was striking out after her ns  soon aa the words had left her lips.  She had nearly reached the dory,  nnd confident of winning the race, put  her hand up to catch the gunwale;  mis-scd It, and suddenly discovered she  wns out of depth and ln the runway  current.  "Tom!" she cried, and then all Tom  saw was a pair of frightened upturned  eyes and terror-stricken face, as sho  swept under tho srrrface.  A fine predicament for a lover who  was not a brave man. and who had  barely learned to swim! Drawing a  deep breath, blind to all danger, and  with no thought but to save her or  die with her, Tom struck out into tho  current and under the surface.  His heart thumped widly as he felt  a mass of her sun-gold hair come into  his grasp, and in a moment more they  rose to the surface. Through his salt-  dimmed eyes Tom saw a bit of rope  and gra6pcd it.. They had come up  under the stern of tho dory, which  had swung into the current with them,'  and he was now firmly gripping a bit  of painter which hung over the stern.  In a few minutes more he had lifted  her over the side, clambered iu after,  and was chafing her hands briskly.  Mrs. Hart's cries from the beach had  brought the Cobbs to the scene, and  Master Harry was running a dory  down the beach to the rescue.  It had all-happened fn a very few  minutes. Mary opened her eyes,  smiled and said: "You ne.edeu't rui?  all the skin off my hands, sir."  "Thank God! She is all right," said  Tom, fervently.  "Tom, dear, you reached the dory  first.   Kiss me, eir!   You won!"  And then Master Harry's boat grated alongside.  -^SWEETHEARTS ALWAYS  tf sweethearts were sweethearts al'  ways  Whether as maid or wifo  No drop would be half as pleasant  In the mingled draught of life.  ri:'-'  Cut the sweetheart has smiles and  blushes  When the wife has frowns and sighs,  ���������And the wife's has a wrathful glitter  For the glow of   the   sweethearts  '���������She went alonrr   swiftly   until   sh������| the "unirapasslone.l   maimer In   wlilc-i  knew that she was out of   view   Irom    she had received i.lia news of AlK-n s \  the cove.

'���������(Ij  ��������� ....40............. ..................  ���������'    Held of tlio -P-Ias* on thc flcnvt.  How many people fully realize what  the flag of their country means to  them? How many know the place it  actually holds in their affections T It  may be safely said that the number is  very small. One has'lo be away from  home tocget the full meaning of tt.  Here/where the flag is everywhere,  lt is treated more or less lightly; indeed, the average man gives it no  thought at all'. A traveler, Morgan  Williams of; Chicago, recently discoursed entertainingly on this pub*r*:ct.  It was just after the relief of the legations at.Pekln. ,  "I can at least partially appreciate  the thrill that the first sight of tne  Stars and Stripes floating over the relieving force gave the Americans who  had been watting so long for succor."  he said. "Of course, I never was* hemmed in for weeks by a cruel horde as  they were, and the flag could not havo  given the same significance for me,  but I had been for a year without a  sight ot it! and when my gaze firs',  rested on it I had to gulp down something that rose in my throat. When  I left home I had about the same r?v-  erence for it that the average American has and while I was travelling I  really hadn't given it much thought.  I had had no special longing to see it;  at least ���������**���������;; such idea had been formu-  JstTTd In my mind. Noi- is���������.- " ���������"--���������/3--j  peclally homesick. Of course, a ma,. '  who has been long away want** to get  back to his native country, but I was  ���������used to traveling and took my enforced absence philosophically.  "On this occasion 1 had b-.en in  Africa, not in the wilds, you und.r-  stand, but still far enough away from  the usual course of travel so that my  eyes had at no time lighted on the  flag that previously had been most  familiar to me. It so happen**-! thit I  did not see it until I reached Pari? on  my way home. I saw other flags, but  ���������not the Stars and Stripes, and, as I  said before. I was not looking for it  ^nd^wts^or'cdn'^ -a*nxiTly -  to see It. I knew that I wanted to get  back to the United States. Then suddenly one day the old flag met my  gaze. There wan some sort of American celebration In Paris, and the Red,  White and Blue, was waving from a  window. I stood stock still for a minute, while a lump rose In my throat;  then I jumped Into the street, threw  my hat up in tbe air and gave a wild  Western yell that must have made the  patlves think tht.t I was cra/-y. It  vas only a piece of bunting, of course,  tut I never saw anything before or  since that so thrilled me. I simply  couldn't help yelling, and lt was immaterial to me how big a fool I seemed  ���������to make ot myself so long as I gave  that flag one good rousing cheer.  "That's why I say that the man who  Iras never been away from tbe flag  is unable to appreciate what it means  to hirrr or the affection that be really  i"eel3 for It. One must see it in a foreign land to gain any conception of  the hold it has on his heart. And if  the mere sight of it so affected ma  under these circumstances what must  a glimpse of It at thc head of a relief column have meant to the Americans In Pekin? It was more than tne  mere assurance of relief, and I vent'iro  to say that the best of tbem never will  -be able to put it Into words. Thero nr9  gome emotions that are beyond description, and principal among them  nre those Inspired In the breast of a  true patriot by the first glimpse of tho  flag of his country after he has been  a long time without seeing It or wien  lt comes as ft banner of hope in lira?  of danger and privation."

A man never feels as if he ban had  a good time unless ii, makes him fool  bad . for a longer timo than it took  him to have It.       '  Although the Tittle village of Alden was beginning to look bright with  the green of early spring, down hero  by the cove all was gray sands, rocks,  sky, even, the water' had the same  dreary tint. Not a gleam of other color, except; that of the arimson shawl,  ���������which the, girl, sitting on; the ledge of  rock, had'.wrapped arouud her.  Laurence: Dare,    coming along   the.  road which ran along above the beach,  ���������saw the patch of red and. paused.*  "That is Monica," he muttered.  He stood still a few minutes, w.itch-  Ing the slender    figure    leaning baclr  against a high    range of   rocks,    the  shawl drawn closely around.her shoulders, the little black hat pushed back  on the dark hair,   her gaze   fixed   ou  the gray wat*er. At sight of her Dare's  heart had given a great throb of   joy.  It   was so "long, so long since he had  reen her.    He made a few long, strides  and stood beside her.  "Monica," he said, softly..  The girl turned her    head; withe *n.  *}uick movement.  "O.h, Laurence."  .   There was a displeased tone In her  voice, and   her  brows  came  together  in a frown as she regarded' him..   Ho  put out his hand.  "Are you not going to shake hands  wt-th me, Monica; it is so long sines  I have seen you?"  The girl gave him her hand' with a  reluctant air, withdrawing it quickly  from his warm clasp, and turning her  face again seaward.  After % silence of some moments-,  which Dare spent in devouring eagerly  with his eyes every line of her lovely  profile, he began:  "Monica, you are cruel; _ ycu" havo  not let me see yon cnJe* all this long  winter.    I  have been  down from  the  "ilty.f-c often, and    tried    again    and  again to see- you, but each time thafi  3 called you had just gone out.   I feel  sure that you saw me and went away  purposely.   Last nit'nt it was the samo  thing.    But chance has been good to  me;   I missed my train this morning*.  and so I havp caught you; you bad no,  opportunity to avoid me."  The girl made no answer.  He went on: Last summer you givn  roe a faint hope    that in    time    you  would listen  to  me.    What have yim  to  say  to  me  now;     have    you    not.  thought of me all these long months''"  She turned around to him, her eyes  _Lill! _of _tcar3.    "I was wrong to let you think yon  might hope. Laurence, for I can't do  as you wish. Don't you understand?  It seems wrong for me to listen to you.  Thlak. I belong to Allen; I was to  have been his wife. He was always  talking of Cousin Laurence; you seemed Cousin Laurence to me. too. Don't  you see? I belong to Allen; I can't  marry you."  "But Allen Is  not "  ��������� Sbe interrupted  him  quickly:  "Hush; we don't know; he must 1>������  tlvihg."  "Monica," be said, with great  gentleness of voice, "fhink, it Is four  years; he was to have returned in ten  months. "*-���������*���������_  "I must be faithful to bim."  Dare flushed.     "This is    nonsense.  Monica," ne said, half angrily.   "If Allen is living," he went on, "why havo  we   not   heard   from   him   all   the*;e  years?   Are you going to waste your  iife in this ,'ittle village and give up  all chmces o' happliMjfs for a   fan-i-  fnl idei of being bound to hlrn?

"I can't Laurencf."  "Will you spoil both our lives?"  "I must   not   listen,    Laurence.     I  i"wlsb that you did not care for me."  "I can't help caring for you.   I think  I have loved you since the flrst. day I.  saw   you,   and   now   that   yon   ara  free������������������"  "I am not free."  "Monica, listen."  She stood rip.

What caro he har given    to  Allen'.'  desolate mother.    He had nlrnosl lilicJ  the place of her son.   Still, ut lirst, he:  feeling for him had been only a stronu  admiration.    In spite of her recognition of Allen's weak* nature the fuse-  nation of his glance, and soft    voU-n  had held her captive.   But now! Wlrcr:  Allen had gone West on the prospering tour, which    wns to   occupy   ten  months, she had promlsod to lie read:'  to marry him upon his   return.     Bn  the ten months had passed, and o'fr*!  months had grown into years, &nd lin  had not returned.    They had  had in*  news of him after that last letter, written seven monthse from his departure.  Laurence had employed  every  mean--  at his command to find some trace o;'  him, but in vain.     He   appeared   'lo  havo vanished utterly.   The only reasonable solution of the mystery wan  that he was dead.     His   mother   believed lt, but   Monica did   not.     Sh-*  could not.    She had promised to wait  for him; Bhe dared   not   break   that  promise.    Allen had   loved    her���������sh;,  must, she would be faithful. She would  oot yield to Laurence.  Dare did not again' see Monica, although at each visit he made his aunt  during the spring he called at the parsonage. But Moni'ea had always been  out. The minister and his wife received him most cordially. They would  gladly have seen their daughter hi?  wife.  One day in June Monica' was returning hom������ from a walk down to the  cove. THj-r way was In -tbe neighborhood of Allen's mother. As it waa  still early in the afternoon* she decided to go and pay her a caH.. She had  not gone to see her often* of late,  ���������through fear of meeting Laurence.  She felt that she would run no rislc  of meeting him this afternoon, ho  laving visited his aunt the previous  week. On reaching the hotree she  {bund the hall door open. She "knocked lightly, and, without waiting for  a response, walked into the little parlor, where she knew Mrs. Dare, was ln  the habit of silting.  But at the threshold Monica paused,  for there stood TLaurcnco by the window with an open letter in his band,  rti'a aunt sat near him, apparently in  a state* of great excitement.  As she saw Monica she cried out:  "He lives, Monica! he lives! My boy  lives! my own Allen Is living!' Come  in and hear the Ipfer."  Then the mother fell to weeping and  repeating over and over:. "My .boy ls  Uvinsl"  "What   fs   lt   Lawrence?     You   aro  hiding something." 0  Monica looked from her to Dare in  ���������bewilderment. She had turned -very  .white. Laurence went up to her and  drew her to a chair. He, too, waa  ���������pale.  ���������"Is-lt-true?"-- gasped���������Monica���������at  length.  "Yes*, but he did not look at her."-  "When?"  "I received the letter this morning,  and came down by the first train."  "He Is well?"  "Yes."  "Where te he���������I don't understand?''  "In  California."  Monica looked at him confusedly.  "Why���������why haven't I���������but I have  lreen out all afternoon. I suppose thai*:  | shall find a letter at home."  Dare did not reply. His aunt was  still crying. She now looked up at  Laurence.      "* " ''" ���������    '  "Finish the letter Laurence. Listen,  Monica; our Allen ia still living."  Dare had folded the letter and was  ���������putting it Into his pocket.  "There fs little more of importance,  dear aunt."  "But Monica must heart It, Laurence. Monica, child, we'll be happy  now. Read the letter for her, Laur*.  fnce."  "My dear aunt, you must try to  calm yourself or you will be III."  Monica was puzzled by Dare's evident desire not to read tho letter to  Ther.  "Laurence in right; you must try to  be calm, dear Mrs. Dare."  "Joy never kills, child. I must cry  for pure happiness."  'I shall go home now," said Mon-,  lea.   Perhaps there Is a letter for me."  "Well, child, but come early to-morrow. We'll count the days now till we  see my boy." >���������  Laurence had left the room and  ���������tood at the entrance door.  "I ara coming with you," he said as  Monica came out.  Dare regarded the girl stealthily a������  tbey walked along.    He marvled   al  ' and thero was a strained look lu he:  face. Not the expression of joy lit*  would have expected to see. Sir*  walked rapidly, paying no heed u*  Pnro.  * He put his hand gently on her arm.  "Do not walk so fast, Monica-   You  ���������Will tiro yourself out."  She  did  not  reply,  but  Went more  slowly.  "Monica," began Dare, hesitatingly.  "I���������do not think that you will llnd o  letter from Allen."  Sho stopped still aud looked at him.  "What is it, Laurence? You are biding something. What Is the mystery?  Whv did you nut wish to read lhe let.  ter?"  "Monica, I believe you nre a bravt  girl.   Call up nil your pride now."

"Let us go down there. I can no;  talk to you here."  She followed him submissively.  Thoughts of their lust interview at  this place came to her mind. How  miserable she had been then, and l.o.v  mjserable now. Allen was alive, and  she, wretched girl, was not glad. Sim'  did not love him. It was Laurence*  that she loved, but she must be raltb-  ful to Allen. Laurence must never  guess what a wicked girl she was. Ai-  Ion alive, and she not glad, and what  .was Laurence going to tell her:  Dare seated her In a sheltered position and stood looking at her, a world  of compassion in his eyes*.  "Monica, 1 would    give my   life' to  spare y*bu this.    Allen is a scoundrel.'  He draw the letter from his pocket  opening it slowly.  "What Is it, Laurence? Why du  you speak so?"

Monica read no further, hut throw  the letter down with a little cry ana  hid her face in her bands*.  Dare stood looking at her sadly,  cursing Allen in his heart.  "My darling, if I could have spared  you this," he said.  Presently Monica looked up at   biro  and said, tremulously:  "Laurence,  I  tried all along to    bo  faithful to Allen, but "  ,-"But what, Monica?"

' i-.-.-^s-^^  THE last hope of saving Winthrof  Lyle's life was gone.    After   a  patient hearing of the case, the  Governor decided that the sen*  tence of death must stand.   Th*  clever lawyers who had fought for th������  criminal, regretfully accepted defeat, and  authorized Lyle's friends to notify hire  of the end of hope.   Tli is duty fell tc  young Lyle, who had fought his brother's  ,!battle with courage and skill;  but he  quailed before the new task ns if lie *wert  the executioner.   So many times he had  .mounted the hill to the prison with hope  ���������in his heart and good cheer on his lip**!  And now ho must ascend it once more  ,-mth the fearful message that a Lyle  -eras to die on tho scaffold!   He did not  need to tell his story in words.   Win-  itfrrop read it in his convulsed face, and  (���������Imply clasped his hand with a brother**!  'tenderness.   His was the stronger soul.  "I did not expect better news," he (said.  "A  long  and   gallant  fight  like yours  (against such odds rarely wins-a-victory.  ���������X am prepared for the end!"  He lowered his voice as lie-continued,  ffor they were in the death-house <of thc  l-prison, and the guard stood olose, to see  ���������every movement.  "You know that T am determined ���������*������  iLyle of our family shall notdiein'dis-  Igrace like this. I hnve perfected ai' plan  of escape. It will be successful, one way  .���������or another,*! ossure'you. Before'the day  ���������of execution comes I shall be far awny  -from this place���������or dead. I am not go*  'ing to tell 'you any more about it, because success depends upon/your ignorance of my movements. : I want you to  (do one thing, and promise another,  fljeavetcn thousand dollars'with Lawyer  'Broome, to be given to anyone who aski  'for it, be he beggar,'tramp, or gentleman. And.promise me that if I escape  no one of my' family will make the slight*  ���������est effort to find me, or follow me."  "It's all right about tlie ten thousand,"-said Harry; "but I don't under-  -stand the other request. Isn't it a little  hard!"  "In the shadow of the gallows," Winthrop   replied,   "what -enn  be   hard!     1  want to save myself and you from thnt  ���������Bhame.    I  must choose  between  death  and what is harder to tear than death���������  -exile, and eternal separation   from   my  own.   If I escape denth by my own hand  it will bo only by disappearing ns completely <.ns if the earth swallowed ine.   1  choose to disappear, and  I shall  never*  return.    Some whisper of my condition  may reach you  now and  then, but by  : those who are dear to me I shall never  again bo seen.   The necessity of so hard  a lot ought to be plain to you."  "It is and it isn't," said Harry, distressed. "Can't you leave a little hope  :��������� of seeing you some time in the future!"  ���������"Out of the question. You know what  a-search will be made for me. ; I shall  need the cunning of Satan to escape, ami  I think I have it. But the one condition  of success is the ignorance of you all, the  perpetual and willing ignorance as tu  -what haa become of me. I have learned  one thing: that escaped prisoners are  caught again because they cannot give  up * all . connection with the past; with  tbe people, the scenes, the memories, the  habits to" which they-were accustomed.  So* they leave a little path from their  biding place to the past:for clever detectives to find. Look at that bright boy  watching us yonder.   He is the smartest  ��������� detective on the force, ond his present  DflSoe is to see that I do not die.or escape until hanged."  Then you are to go away for good,"  ��������� said Harry, with Increasing gloom. "It  will be the same as if you were buried."  "Just  that,   but  minus   the   shame,"  ��������� said' Winthrop, with great satisfaction.  ���������Don't quarrel over good-luck."  fl-.wont, but It feels like death. We  must be resigned, though, and I give you  nny promise,"  "Here, then, are your instructions.  From this time on act as if the hanging  .���������were to take place one week from, to-  . day. Tell mother nothing. When the  .news ,of my flight reaches you, look  upon,ma as dead and buried in Newton  ichurchyard. In fact, it won't help you  ���������to act.otherwise. My plan of escape excludes you : all. If it did not, or if  ���������through.weakness.I let you share, in the  -secret; I might as well die at once.  Good-by 1"  -    .Winthrop was in.good spirits at the  close, of the.visit, and kept himself in the  same mood for the next few days, in  spite .of the ��������� trying -scenes of  farewell  with his .friends and relatives.   Young  Detective Lord   watched   him  in  great  uneasiness, for his reputation depended.  ~ ".upon-t]r(*r;inanging of this~clever-scron,o"f-  a famous -family.   Hc could not rid him-  .eelf of a presentiment that the execution  ���������would never take place, no matter what  .care the authorities might exercise.  Jn  the history of .criminal trials none had  -given so much .trouble as Lyle's to get. a  .conviction.   The.case hod not only been  ���������tried in the courts and the newspaper?,  it had also a private hearing in judicial  .and executive chambers.   Tlie Lyle family, wealthy and powerful, was bent .on  preventing by any means the disgrace  oi -the scaffold.   It was a great triumph  .for justice when influence, intrigue, cor-  ���������ru-ption,  and the  skill  of the  lawyers  .came to naught in court and elsewhere  Even public opinion, won  to sympathy  by the brilliant struggle .vbioh Lyle made  for his life, iby his talent, his spirit, his  beauty of face .and manner, his steady  And solemn declarations   of -innocence,  w*aa resisted and overcome by die .offlcer*-  ot justice.   Detective Lord had followed  the struggle in  its secret  details, and  -was convinced that Lyle would' nev,er be  hanged.    So he  promptly declined ithe  chief's appointment to become  responsible for the execution.   In the end, lie  ���������was persuaded to accept.   He could eaa.  iiy bear tlie failure sure to attend this  Juty, but suspicion of .bribery was a different thing.   It was sure to fall upon  'him, as it- hod fallen on .every official  connected with the stubborn criminal.  The care taken to prevent u. prisoner  under sentence of death from escape oi  Irmidde is very thorough in flrgt-oliuw  prisons, but it reminds one of the care  taken by railroad corporations to pre-  .vent accidents. No mutter how perfect  the system, lt depends on men for success; and engineers will drink, switchmen  fall asleep, telegraph operators inks the.  right word, and brnkcineii fail to swing  fa. warning lantern. Winthrop Lyle,  counting more on the weakness of hu.  man nature in others than its strength  in himself, escaped by the simple process  frf overpowering the death watch, looking  liim up iii a cell, and -walking out of the  prison by a path which cost four thou-j  eand dollars to make. Lyle computed!  that if the road, two feet wide and three!  hundred long, wero carpeted with one  .dollar bills, it would take four thousand*  ;of them to cover the space. Therefore  he offered the deathwatch that sum for  luck, and so left the great prison forever. Every one remembers the stir erected by his disappearance. The officials,  mad with rage and Bhame, really ex-:  hausted tho means at their command to'  find tho criminal. Lord, dismissed in disgrace, as public opinion demanded,  threatened thc chief with a suit for  damages. He regained his pluce, which  meant nothing, for he was left in idleness nnd obscurity. Nor would he consent to that punishment. The chief fin-  nlly Appointed him to a place in the pursuit -of Lyle, on condition that it remained a secret, and thnt his abstention  from interference with the regular plan  of pursuit hc absolute.  The plnn came to naught within a  .year. Lord held on six months longer,  studying with infinite patience clews, actual and theoretic, that promised something. Lyle had vanished into thin air.  'Hnd lie dissolved into elementary gases  at the prison gates, hc could not have  left less trace of his path into the world.  Not one clew ever led to nny result, not  even to a decent theory of his escape.  Lord continued tho pursuit out of pure  fascination for a mystery wliieli overtaxed his powers, and took the edge off  his natural shrewdness. After resigning,  and going into an orchestra ns first violin���������for faith in his abilities finally deserted him���������this fascination accompanied him, and proved a great bore to his  friends from the endless speculations it  led him to indulge. Over his mantel he  kept a fine photograph of Winthr-op  Lyle, and the slim, hard figure, the pale,  thin, high-bred face, the -severe expression and dark eyes had a. prominent  place in his sleeping ami waking dreams,  in the end, no one took any interest in  his cherished mystery, save the boy who  played the 'cello in the orchestra.  It was always a great relief to Lord  to turn from constant brooding on the  tints of'Lyle's picture, to the society of  the young musician; for Wilhclm Can?,  was a soft-boued, easy-going 'German,  slow in speech and movement, given to  beer and laughter, fond of his wife, bnbv  and 'cello, and fonder of the OGylc problem than Lord himself.  When the boarding-house, the daydreams and the world grew wearisome,  the detective went over to his frierid*.-  house, and spent ������ Sunday evening in  the Ganz parlor. It was a cosy home,  nnd its owners, its pictures, its very furniture, spoke of ease and comfort. 'Wil-  helni was fair-skinned, fat arrd jolly, and  loved to sit with his baby or his'eelloat  his left hand, a mug of Bavarian beer sit  his right. His wife and child were .plum].,  and rosy, and even the gray .professor-  father,* with his (habits of study and  solemn expression, had a .fat-and -contented air about'.him.. Not liRvingbeeu  long in tho country, they spoke English  with a gentle accent. German (pictures  hung on the wall, and German .color*.  were everywhere. Fran Ganz.could.not  abide American cooking, .and her .table  was ever dressed out with i*he -seasoned  dishes of the Fatherland. '.When they  sang songs or indulged in-.old.'meinories,  the little village near Munich was.thc  theme. The one promise .to .baby to .induce him to be good wns .a .visit'to Munich when be Irad come to be a. .man.  Among these simple people Lord might  talk hia hobby to death, and.be.listened  , to with reverence.  "It'a so nice to have a (clever .detective speak by the hour -of a great murderer and villain," Frau ;,G������nz said * to  her neighbors. The professor did not pay  much attention, while Wilhclm was a  tireless listener, and had many speculations on the plan of .escape used -by  Lyle.  ; "No doubt he is.-dead," -snid -.Wilhelm  .one day. The remark -brought out a new  fact.  "Why do you'think so?" 'Lord asked.  "He could not have fooled .the .bestde-  tectives in the land, and so .many of  them. Hje died, probably by his own  hand, and his relatives buried him secretly, so that there might bo mo more  scandal over the poor devil."  "But I know that he was not dead n  year and three months after Irjs flight,"  said Lord.. "I lead a note sent by him  to his mother. It* said: 'The man .who  fled is well and happy, but too far to go  to you or to be reached by message. Be  content.' You see, I watched the house  of his mother, and read their letters,  their newspapers, everything to get a  clew.   So he was alive.    Bui, where?"  "Wonderful," sar*. Wilhelm.      '"Could  you not track that irote to its writer?"  ���������  Lord threw up his hands in di-*gu-*t.  '"The   letter    was    posi rn irked   New  -York,- the-paper-was-.-\ iireri*.vj n.���������J t-lrad**  been written by n friend, who  had  received  the message, probably  by  cable,  to transmit to the mother.    1 looked up  lire matter, but, of course, it  wan only  waste of time."  "I have a theory," began Wilhelm,  ���������slowly.  "What? Another!" The detective  luughed, and the professor glanced-irritably at his son.  "A new one, sure," said Wilhelm, placidly. "Some lime, when I have fitted'  the joints, I will tell you how that Lyle.  tfsenped. He was no ordinnry man, and  when he disappeared, it wus forever. It  iian-art to disappear well, and he must  have'been skilled in the art. I know its  rules, and the principles on which these'  rules are based. It is curious and inter-,  esting, -this art."  "Kules! Artl What rot U this?":  cried Lord. "If there were rules, and  art, or any .other rubbish, would not we'  professionals'know it all?"  "That's usually the trouble with us!  professionals," said Wilhclm; "we know-  it all." "������������������'���������"���������''.  "But the art! (Come, tell us about it,  since it is so very-important," said Frau'  Ganz, the professor, and^the detective,]  together; but Wilhclai .declined to make'I  any explanations until he wa3 fully pre-,  pared to withstand the assault of criti*-  cism. "..'���������.*.  Lord felt curious about this matter^  knowing that Ganz would make a clear,'  forcible statement of his theories. For.  he had studied logic and rhetoric at Inns-  pruck, and could put a case, in which he  wns interested, very strongly.  Lord hnd grown most impatient long  beforo Wilhelm wn* reudy to make an-  irxposition of the art of disappearing.  "There is such an    rt," he b.egan, one  Sunday   evening,   "nr.i   your  man  Lyle  j  was skilled In it.   It? would be a treat to  hour laini discourse on it."  "Wouldn't   it,  nol," said   Lord,  with  (���������corn.     "Especially   If.   while   listening.  one-nab*" ir-e"~Tewhr**i ot-enpnirrn-p-Trrnr li*  his inside pocket. But that will never  be."  "Probably not," .**aid Wilhclm. "unless he gets tired of hiding. * Yorr know, 1  .always took an interest in the poor fellow." I seem to knuw him ns well ;.-;  you, so often have you described his  words and ways. He was a genuine A n-  erican in blood, training, appearance,  cleverness. Old family,, high spirit, and  nil that; .Harvard graduate, stylish in  dress, good figure; rather thin., than  plump; brown hair, green eyes, pale, sc-  .vere face; quick in movement, .-peech  nnd thought. Then he wn** inventive,  fond of mathematics, also of pleasure;  but cared nothing for music, or wine, or  hooka. And lie learned enough of drugs  to poison his wife too cleverly."  "How could he have been so hard and  cruel?" said Frau Ganz, with n sigh.  "I don't believe he did it," said Wilhelm, softly. "His lawyers, the great  public, his relatives, nmriunny good people believed him innocent. Lord says tho  case got an awful threshing, and Uie  more they threshed the less certain some  were of his guilt, while others were more  certain."  ! "But the art, the art!" cried tire impii-  tient detective.  I.   "Ah, yes, the art, to be sure.    Well,  [���������first, have I described Lyle accurately?  I might say lie was just the opposite of  myself in most things."  "Two young men," answered Lord,  "couldn't be, and look, less alike."  Wilhelm smiled.  _ "I arrived in this country about the  time he escaped from jail. I could read  English then, and, I remember, thc newspapers were full of him. But, until I  met you, the case did not interest me.  To begin: Every art hns a principle and  a method. To practice the art well, one  must know the principle, and be exact  in following the method. The principle  of the art of disappearing is simple: Cut<  yourself -off from the past as completely  as if you had been drowned in mid-  ocean. The method depends upon thet  principle, and, for each ease, varies only  in trilling circumstances."  "Is that all?" Lord growled. "Why,  that's what they all do, and most Of  them are caught as easy as rats with  traps and cheese."  "That's what they all do," echoed Wilhelm; in a lofty, tone. "Are you sin**** of.  that? Did Lyle bite at your cheese? Lai  'me show'you what the principle forces a  man to-do, when it is successfully carried out. You think it. means'"running"  away to Brazil or Persia, in a, wig and  blue spectacles, as they do in a. play.  No. The man -who disappears according  to this principle, must escape, not only  from his .pursuers, but from *  vouldt bring him to anoder subject soon  ���������und qvick, since it is not to any man  safe und brofitable to dvcll doo long on  dose human myzderies of crime, nefer to  be found ond, sbecially ven he hess a vife  und child, ubon him alone depending vor  srrbbort. You are Wilhelm's goot friendt,  und I speak to you ns such."  "Gad, I noticed it myself," said Lord,  "particularly when he shouted, 'Arrest  me, I am Winthrop Lyle.' He made mo  think of Lyle himself then, I tell you.  But you nre right, professor, to warn  me. I've seen these theories get hold of  men nnd land them in the asylum. So,  just ns soon ns Wilhclm works off his  thoughts on Lyle's escape, I'll never mention the infernal thing again. We'll talk  about Africa and Greenland. Tho cas������  has me nearly crazy. But, that's a wonderful theory of Wilhelm's, all the same,  if lt could only be carried out."  "If it only goudt," roared the professor, as he went in.  A few nights later Wilhelm wae -ready  to apply his theory to the escape of  Winthrop Lyle, but he had lost some of  his interest in the matter, and his round  face, a trifle flushed with beer, beamed  too comfortably for mental activity.  "It is a great pity," he began, "that a  sound and rational theory does not always fit well into ordinary life. There  is sure to be one hitch or another. 1  have had trouble explaining Lyle's disappearance, according to the rules of the  art. But you must not laugh at me. 1  firmly believe that this unfortunate man,  who left no tracks in the rond he traveled, escaped by means of the principle  and method I have described. No other  theory fits the case. When it became  certain that either escape or suicide was  his one refuge from the gallows, he made  arrangements with his friends to bribe  the prison guards,- that he might get  easily to this city. You told mc that  yourself. But, lie nlso made arrangements for a final separation from his  friends. Knowing that successful flight  depended on a strict adherence to lire  rules of disappearing, he must have ordered his relatives to make no search for  him, to look upon him as dead. Needing  money to carry out his plans, he had  them place a good sum where he could get  it without trouble. .When nil was ready  he slipped away after midnight, took the  first train to the city, and went straight  to the old man and woman with-whom  he intended to take refuge.    .  "In the reports of his trial, it came  out that he had done clcwi table work, on  the East Side, among the Germans, Poles  and Bohemians. I assume that he had  thero made the acquaintance of the persons needed for his purpose, a respect-  e, not only j aD]e German couple,  let us say, needy,  ���������-,*    i,    "    ii  r   '    , ���������       ,,    ������?

There's the '       "        ��������� ***'-��������� -       -'  first and the second rule in the method."  "I don't quite understand," said Lord.  . "Why -should you?" said Wilhelm, in  triumph. '-Had you understood long ago,  you would have given up the chase of  ���������Lylethe inoment.you knew what he had  done. What is a body floating in the sen  to the friends and relatives-of him-who  once owned it? Nothing. It has no  'shape-or.mark to make itknown to the  owner. It is completely changed in essential-details. It is lost. 3t cannot be  reached for burial. So must it be -with  the criminal who flies from relentless  .pursuit of the law, and who can never  return, .with safety, to his old life. (He  must change his country, never .meet old  friends again, get a. new I.mguage, a-ncw  trade, a new place in society, a new set  of parents and relatives, .a new .past, a  .new habit of body, a new appearance.

Who gould-  -bragtise dose rules! Und if dey gould,  what use would be detectives?"  ' "It makes fine talk," said Lord. "All  very well if such things could be done.  'As they can't, your theory isa't worth a  straw.    It's impossible."  Wilhelm opened an album, nod pointed  out two photographs to ���������hisfric'ndr-^orie.a  slender, smooth-faced college boy, in uniform; the other.a bearded, dark-skinned,  rudely-dressed man, strong-limbed, resolute and experienced as the boy was  timid and green.  "Here is the same person," said he,  "with only two years between the photographs."  "Drue,"  said   the   professor.  . "Das   is  me, a student  at Bonn, und  me again  egabloring Africa."  J Lord stared and muttered.  "It two years of accidental   trninirrg  can do so much," said  Wilhelm, "what  would not two years of intelligent work 1  Accomplish, by such a  man ns Lyle, in j  -his-strange^positioii^forced'to^disappcarj  r die?   If he adhered faithfully to the ���������  gatiorrs to him, and ready to do any honest thing that would secure comfort for  their old age. T know a score such that  would be glad to accept thc propositions  made by Lyle to Herr Schneider and his  wife���������let Schneider be their name. He  offered to pay them a good sum down,  and so much a month while they lived,  to be adopted as their son Frank, just  returned from California; sick' almost to  death. They accepted. Frank Schneider  went to bed at once as a sick man, and  was not seen again on the streets of New  York for three months. The neighbors  got no glimpse of him for a month, but  his mother went about nil that time telling her cronies and friends of her son's  return, keeping them, informed ol his  progress to health, letting them .peep  into 'his bedroom,* and promising her  maiden friends her influence in coaxing  Frank to marry one of them within the  year.  "You can imagine what Lyle was doing during this month of sickness. He  was recovering from the strain of.trial  and prison, learning the German language as the Schneiders, spoke it, getting used to a German diet, making himself familiar, with"Bavaria, with the native village, tlie relatives and friends of  his new parents, and in general fitting  himself for the part he had to play.  Moreover, he was doing his best to get  fat, to get the rough bloom of a beer;  drinker, and to bleach dark hair, eyebrows, and beard to yellow. When at  the end of a month he could sit up and  receive visitors, his German was passable, and his appearance sufficiently rude  to suit.his surroundings. When he appeared on the street ho had become easygoing' Frank Schneider in earnest, and  every soul in the ward was willing to  swear he was Schneider's son. His mother's'countrywomen had known bim as a  boy, and could now see in him proper  resemblances to his parents! By that  time he spoke German well, and English  not at all. He was fat, and roughly  dressed. His hair was like mine, he  wore glasses, his walk w.13 lazy, his manners bad. He read no English books, he  ate only as do the Bavarians, and a Ger-  man neighbor taught_hini���������to_write_ina_;i  queer hand, whielPFrank Schneider made  his own.

Lord still studied the photographs with  interest.  "I begin to understand you," he said.  "There is more sense in your art than I  thought. You bebeve, then, that Lyle  disappeared in this wonderful way. How  do you think he did it?"  "That's another story," Wilhelm replied as he finished his beer. "Everyone;  uses the same method, of course, but the  details are.different. lam satisfied that  you see the truth of the principle, and  now simple and deep it is. If I get any'  ideas on Lyle's particular way of'doing  the change act, I shall tell you."  "I want to hear them," said Lord..  "It's a new peep Into that cursed mystery, which puzzles me more the n������ore I  ���������thdy it"  When  he was leaving the house  an  hour later, the old professor met him on  the street, with aj anxious face.    "Dot t  Lyle myzdery," saft hc, in his ponderous 1  tcccnt,  "dhroubles   Wilhelm   doo   much, ]  und it vould  blease  me irreadly  if  vou  quite an impression, and their son wae  thought to have a good memory and a  great love for the country of his childhood.    No doubt, Lyle put all that he  had learned from his parents to the test  during his stay in Hofberg.   The Bavarians said, with delight: 'He speaks German as if he had never been in America!'  He told them stories of hia childhood, in  which he had been the hero, described  well-known scenes, asked after relatives  who were dead, and mentioned some of  their peculiarities.   Probably not even a  Bavarian detective could have    pierced  through   his    disguise    after   a three  months' stay in Hofberg, where he taught  the innkeepers to mix drinks in t'he American  style.     Everyone   said    he   was  truly a native and a credit, and should  not think of returning to America.   This  must have been his own intention at first,  and he knew that he wns violating a  chief rule of the art of disappearing by  not changing country   as well'as personality.   However, the East Side is not  so far from Europe, and he concluded  that on the East Side lie would live and  die.   So the Schneiders returned to their  old quarters, and Frank  went back   *\  iis old bartending with a fine stock of  itories from the Fatherland, and a bigger ditch btJiween him and the past,  which lived only in his memory.  "Ho spoke English now with a German accent, which c-nine to his lips without effort. Ho enjoyed his new life. -Jt^  wns pleasant in itself, and like heaven,  (vben compurcd with the prison, the gallows, the grave, and the awful shame.  After six months of study and practice  In his new character, he had no longer  io remind himself constantly of the paTt  he was playing. It hnd become his nature. He kept out all thought of Winthrop Lyle, trying to think of him and  bis story as one thinks of a character in  a novel. Finally, he chose a good girl  to be his wife, a girl from the village of  Hofberg. She was pretty and sensible,  and loved him, though she felt it lowered  her to marry a bartender. That amused  him very much, but it fell in with his  plans, and they were married. That's  the end ot my theories.  "Eight months from the date of his  escape he had become another man. You  can see what the art of disappearing did  for him in that time; what mu9t it not  have added in the sixteen months that  have since (led? No doubt he hns prospered in business, nnd now owns a beer*  garden or a brewery. In his dreams, niul  in the quiet moments before sleep, he  was in the habit of recalling the pust,  the scenes of the trial, the long days in  prison. But marriage and success must  have done nway with that. When he  got into politics, and had a crowd of  clients to distract him every day, his  past must have disappeared, even from  his dreams.  Father and mother, brothers  and sisters "  "Even the murdered wife," whispered  Frau Ganz.  "He never murdered her," said Wilhelm, in the same tone. "All may have  vanished in the commonplace routine of  his life. He has probably observed every  rule of the art but two. You say he  sent word to his parents of his safety  and happiness. That wns nn error, but  without consequences. A second error is  his stay in his native country; that may  be as harmless as the first. It would  not avail him now to. reveal his identity.  Ho would be denied by the Lyles, and  put in confinement by his friends. Probably he has met and exchanged kindly  words with you, Lord, und his persecutors. I have no doubt, when he thinks  of his triumph over you, he feels like  saying, 'I am Winthrop Lyle,' and defying you to track him even then. Is it  not possible? Could you find him in the  person I have described to you? Is he  not hidden as securely ns if he wore  dead?"  "Not a doubt of it," sard Lord, promptly. "If he followed your plan he is safe  from friend and enemy, und safe from  himself."  Wilhelm and , his father exchanged  glances.  ��������� "But/'great'.heavens!" ..cried tlie ex-  detective, "what suffering that poor devil must have endured to wipe himself  off the face of the earth in that way!"  "It would kill me, I think," said Wilhelm, taking his baby from the' cradle to  kiss him good-night. "If I had to leave  these, and turn myself into another being, as Lyle did, what sorrow and pain I  would have to endure! As for Lyle, I  think you are right in saying tliat one of  his spirit must have suffered fiercely."  Frau Ganz took her baby to his crib in  the back room, and left the men to themselves. Lord looked uneasily at Wilhelm,  for the last words had come out wildly,  he' had grown pale from emotion, and  had-risen to pace the room. The professor shook his head at his son, and  shrugged his shoulders for Lord.  "Fiercely, I repeat," continued Wilhelm. "Nature objects iwith all its  strength, to change so: sudden and violent. And this poor fellow, with his iron  will, went through horrible anguish in  rescuing his name from disgrace by obliterating himself after all the horrid  suffering of trial, struggle and death-  watch! But still," and he sat down, as  if eoothed by. the thought, "it was atri-  umph, a compensation to have achieved  the defeat of his persecutors, even though  he committed two errors! And he will  add a third at this moment. Lord, look  at me, and mark well what I say, for it  is the.truth, I am Winthrop Lyle!"  The detective put on his hat, gayly,  nnd started for the door, saying, with  ready -wit, as ho stood on the threshold,  "I'll pay your theory the compliment of  not believing you.   Good-night."  _He rushed home, full of regret and  bitterness*at this unexpected result of  airing his hobby too freely.  1 "If that boy goe3 crazy," ho said,"  ���������and he's half crazy now, I'll never forgive myself. Anyway, this is a warning  to me. I want to keep my senses, so  the Lyle mystery must go overboard."  And he flung, photographs, papers and  -clew3=beariiig-orr-*=-*t!rcricniniiTa'l*s~diiap^  pearance Into the fire. The professor nnd  his son sat silent for 11 few minutes' after  Lord's departure. The old man. was  afraid to speak, nnd l Wilhelm seemed  deep in thought.  "Well, what do you think of the test?"  snid the son, in a low tone. "Will it  ever be possible for anyone to recognize  Jr Ganz, the 'cello player, Winthrop Lyle,  tlio condemned murderer?"  "You have proved il, inipossiblc," suid  tho professor, "but, great heaven, what  11 risk to run!" ���������  "It is the first nnd Inst, father.

Next door to the Hume Klnc*..  only   good   form   of government discovered and  it was his hope to see it  established   once  and   for all  in this  province.     (Hear,  hear.)   The theory  of   Socialism   was   an evolution from  primeval   times  to the 19th  century  and was the outcome of  the old form  of  despotism, might over   right and  strength over physical force. This had  further developed into government by  intellect which found its highest form  in   party government.   (Cheers.)   Socialism   was   a   theory and had never  been actually tried and it would not be  a good experiment for British Columbia to indulge in.    (Applause.)   He did  not  intend   to blame   either   of   the  great parties fpr past errors in provincial   affairs;   both   had     made   many  errors   and   that   was   the reason the  Conservatives   had purged party lines.  They had met in Revelstoke lust year,  long before the dissolution, and decided upon this course which he was sure  the majority of the  electorate approved of.     Through  the interference of a  kind   Providence     the    Conservative  partv   was   in   power   (laughter) and  appealed for the suffrages of the voters  on October   3rd.      As this was the inception of party lines here it was only  just,   to trace shortly the history ..of  Conservatism   in    Dominion ".politics.  The  flrst  to    advocate   bringing the  scattered provinces   together into one  glorious Dominion  was the Conservative.party and when the  issue became  a living one it was   decided   to form a  'coalition*0with-'those   Liberals     who  believed in "confederation.    As a result  the "Liberal-Conservative   party, wns  formed and  the  word Liberal was retained, as a   tribute to the Reformers  who assisted in the fight for. Confederation. '   (Cheers.)     Also, the purchase  of the. Hudson  Bay lands wns brought  aboirt by   the   Conservative parly and  finally the  Dominion was rounded off.  after a tremendous  struggle, when in'  1872  this   Province    becaiiie. part   of  Canada.   The man who brought these  things   abont   was   Sir John A. AIuc-  donald.   a   mail   whom   all admire no  matter of what political stripe, (cheers)  British  Columbia   required a railroad  and subsidy before agreeing   to   enter  the confederation. This was supported  by the   Conservatives   and opposed by  the   Liberals   who   sard   that- Ontario  and the   Maiitime    Provinces   would  never get. over the debt incurred.   "Sir  John A." carried  the matter through  by his personal magnetism, a stroke of  genius   on the part of   the great Canadian statesman.    (Applause.)  Again, in 1876, when Canada was in  a state of industrial depression, the  Conservatives rame to the rescue and  enunciated the National Policy for the  protection of home industries. Sir  Wilfrid Laurier h<id never thought of  repealing it. These matters only  touched the hem of the garment of  Conservative policy but showed that  that party had always been just to  British Columbia.   (Cheers.)  When the elections resulted in favour of the present Government, as he  was sure they would, it was intended  to carry out a progressive programme.  It had been stated by Mr.Bennett that  no government should be under the  control of corporacions. This was perfectly right and he, the speaker, was  ahle to state that neither Mr. McBride  nor any of hi������ colleagues were bound  by any strings to any corporation  whatever. But. as soon as Mr. Mc-  Brrde'gof in-priwerr-he=recognized-^hatr  the mining industry of Kootenay.  Boundary and other plates required  railway facilities and Ire had already  arranged for the immediate construction of the Coast-Kooterray railway.  This was a stroke of genius and the  ministry wns lucky in having a man of  such strength of purprrse behind lhem.  (Cheers.) That strength was never  better shown than when, without even  consultinghis constituents*, he stepped  down nnd out of the Dunsmuir Cabinet on a question of principle. (Hear,  hear.)  Before he, the speaker, was asked lo  join the cabinet his colleagues Irad  stated franklyand fairlytheir position.  Mr, Bennett was quite right in stating  that, in the past, funds hnd been provided by great corporations, but there  was no question like that now. Tliey  had decided to appeal to the people on  Ihe merits. Tbey proposed, if there  was not enough money to pay the  necessary expenses, to let the people  elect Liberals. "But." continued Mr.  Goodeve, "as T stand here as a member ot lhe British Columbia ministry I  can declnre that when we are elected  there will rrot be a single corporation  that has any hold on thc McBridi/  government-" (Applause.) "VVea.sk  for support nn principle, and, if sustained, will give yon a government  that will be a credit t.o the Province  and every section of it."   (Cheers.)  Mr. Bennett bad hiadc ft.statement  regarding the employment of Orientals  in coast mines, but, he had not, dune il,  fairly. The McBride government pro-  nosed toer.f-irce the Act if it could be  done���������ii" not to amend it and make it,  capable of enforcement. Thc Attorney  General, Mr. iMcPb-Ilips. had gone t.o  work at once, applied for an injuction  and obtained it. "When the matter  enme up before Mr. Justice Irving he  had put a strange construction orr the  Act and said that Chinese could only  be prohibited if they were a "danger  to the public" uot merely when a menace to their fellow workmen underground. What had Mr. McPhillips  done? He might have said "I have  done all 1 could." But no. Already  he had appealed to the Full Court and  will not rest, until given a favorable  decision. (Cheers.) While on this  matter he. the speaker, wished to  point out that. Sir Wilfrid Laurier had  promised in 1SU0 to remedy the Mongolian evil but until this year nothing  had been done. And even then the  Ace did not come into force until next  year and more Chinese were now  streaming in to the Province than ever  before. This was how the Liberals  dealt.    (Applause.)  As to lhe government's railway policy���������  he did not agree with many details regarding the Grand Trunk Pacific, but,  once it was decided upon, it was necessary to act immediately. The Government had got together at once and asked  Sir Wilfrid Laurier to add a clause in thc  till that no Chinese or Japs be employed  in construction and also that work be  commenced on the Pacific Coast as soon  as on the Atlantic. (Applause). The  McHridc ministry were keeping their  finger on the pulse of public opinion and  knew all would welcome these amendments if placed in the Act. It would  mean that large portions of the necessary  supplies would be bought in British Columbia and that the miners of the interior  would have transportation facilities years  before would otherwise be the case.  (Cheers). I  As to the Great Northern Messrs. I  McBride and Green met Mr. Hill's  representative in Seattle and sard "no  land bonus or grant, but we are prepared  lo give you'the necessary charter." Tlris  had been agreed,jo and the 2,000 miles of  railroad that Mr. Hill had outlined would  be built at once . That was the railroad  policy. (Applause). The platform of thc  Conservative party on that matter would  be rigidly adhered to. No railroad shall  be aided unless the Province has control  of rates. "We stand. for government  ownership and, where circumstances will  nol permit of it, absolute control of tlte  passenger and freight tariffs." (Cheers).  Coming now to the matter of government ownership of telephones. It might  be thought a small matter, but was  gradually growing. Iir Rossland, for some  time, they had Iwo telephone coin panics  and rales were reasonable. Eventually,  however, the smaller was swallowed by  the bigger and rales were doubled at  once. ��������� This acquisition would practically  test government ownership of public  utilities in this Province and the Government was prepared lo bring it aboul.  Was it not right lo start wilh smaller  matters and gradually reach a higher  ideal. That was whal the Government is  striving for.    (Tremendous applause.)  Coming now to the question ot coal  areas. . It was known that syndicates  were rushing over the country trying to  gobble them up. Thc Conservative platform said that the Government shall  reserveapprtion of every area for all  time. If. a monopoly should arise the  the Government could at*once release the  reserve and break the power of the corporation. (Chers.) Some people had  said the .scheme was not practical but lire  position had been.;.strongly endorsed by  the Provincial* Mining Association, an  institution having 7,000 members, mostly  practical miners-. *    -  'Another question was. that of better-  terms from the Dominion.* It: was not,  as Mr. Bennett said, a plank to catch  yotes, but one "the Conservative party  intended-to-carry out. Since Confederation British Columbia had put $13,500,000  more iii the .Dominion"Treasury than it  had taken out and there'was certainly  reason 10 complain. . Mr.'.'McBride, had  not waited until the election to take, up  this matter too.;: Directly he' became  Premier he communicated with R. L.  Borden, leader of the Conservative party,  and had his assurance that when thai  party came into power the matter would  be at once investigated and any injustice  done B. C. remedied at once. (Cheers.)  Of course we got ail we were entitled to  under the terms of Confederation, but  condition.-, in this Province were so much  different from those elsewhere that the  result was unfair.    (Applause.)  The fiscal policy of rhe present Government was well defined and distinct. The  revenue was nearly .-51,900,000, but for 10  years the Province had gone into debt  half a million yearly. No province could  stand that. The Governmont were determined to bring the expenditure within  the revenue. It was no easy task. Schools  alone look 8500,000 and departmental  expenses   nearly  a   million.    But the ex  penditure must be kept down and th������  McBride Government proposed to do il.  (Cheers.) For one thing lire railroads did  not pay enough towards Ilie revenue of  the Province. They are only assessed at  a revenue of $3,000 per mile. This might  liave been just in early times, but not  now, and these corporations would have  to pay much more. There were other-  matters worthy ol" mention, but the late  hour precluded his touching upon theni.  Against this policy what had the Liberals to offer? They had no leader.  There was nol a man in the House who  dared say Martin, Mclnnes or Oliver and  if any one of them were selected it would  only be after a terrible tight. (Cheers.)  They had no policy. "Can anyone having patriotic pride in this groat country  cast his ballot for such an aggregation."  (Cries of "No.")  " Let us contrast the candidates in  " Revelstoke riding wilh lhe utmost  " respect," continued Mr. Goodeve. "Mr.  " Kellie poses as au Independent-Liberal.  " II that moans anything il moans that  " while he Would rather lean lo Liberal  " tendencies if a question arose upon  " which he could not agree irr the House  " he would say 'I am greater than you  "all.' I.s he lilted lobe trusted, wishing  " power greater than the Czar, and not  " prepared to abide by the collective  " wisdom of his party."  Some people seemed to think an Independent stand was the highest, but when  analyzed wint did it mean. It meant  absence of 'all fixed principles. This  want was the cause of' tho unstable  government all were trying lo^get rid of.  This was what caused corporation rule.  (Cheers.)  The growth of Socialism had been  "slo-iy, going on from century to cen'urv.  Some of its principles might be right but  it could not come at once. It was just as  absurd a position as that of the Independents. The utmost Socialists claimed was  ton percent, of the total vote and it was  contrary to all ideas of British juslice and  majority rule through-representative government that this small minority should be  permitted to run the affairs of the Province  or attempt to do so.  "In conclusion,' continued the Provincial Secretary," why should not we do  as was done at Confederation ? Why nol  all good Liberals, and I might also say  the Socialists, urrire and form a stable  government following the evident line of  public opinion ? There is no chance of  the Liberals or Socialists gaining office,  then why noi strengthen the hands of Mr.  McBride and his ministry in "their efforts  lo secure for bur fair Province the prosperity it is entitled to. Mr. Taylor is a  loyal supporter of the present administration. Mo stands high in their esteem, lie  has his seat at the party councils and why  irot return your trusted representative  again as the member for Revelstoke  riding. Mr. Chairman, I feel assured the  electors will."    (Loud cheers).  .Mr. Goodeve then called for throe  cheers and a tiger for Thomas Taylor  which wore given with hearty goodwill  as also three cheers for His Majesty the  King. The large gathering then separated, the hour being nearly midnight, thc  majority feeling assured of Mr. Taylor's  election and thai in Hon. A. S. Goodeve  lhe Premier had a colleague of such  ability and force that he will be a tower of  strength to the Conservative administration.
