(From Onr Own Correspondunt.)  Ottawa, Oct. 17.���������Thero have been  some lively times in the House this  week, probably the most important  being the division on R. JL. Borden's  "niotUHrw'givethe'Nw-tlPWesfTeliTi*-"  tory provincial status. He hail previously obtained all papers and pressed  strongly for the recognition of territorial claims. The motion wa.s however defeated.  Sir Hibbert Tupper arrived here this  afternoon and was warmly greeted.  Mr. Borden moved a resolution today in favour of a fast Atlantic service  and expressing regret that nothing  had been done by the present government. After ii lame reply by Sir  Wilfrid Laurier the motion was voted  down, 58 tu 20.  All reports regarding tho filling of  the vacancy in the British Columbia  Supreme Court are without much  foundation. I understand that L. P.  Buff, of Victoria, had the offer of. it  and declined and that now Aulay  Morrison, M.P., of New Westminster,  is considering whether he will accept  or no. W. A. Galliher, HI.P., is also  pressing for a judge resident in  Kootenay and altogether thoro are so  many claimants for. the position that  it will not be settled for some time.  V. O. Wade, late Crown prosecutor' in  Yukon and Col, F. B."Gregory, of  Victoria, are also mentioned while Li.  G*. Macpherson, M.P., backed up by  the request of the Provincial Government to have tho now judge resident  in Vancouver, may also have n strong  card up his sleeve.  If the Government's bill giving increased superannuation to judges goes  through it is probable thoro will bo two  vacancies instead of oiio. Judges Gn'iy  and Walkeui would be entitled to  retire  on  full pay.     In I hut event, I  understand, there will be two appointments, one for Vancouver and one for  the Kontt.-ua.ys. The Vancouver part  will bo met by the appointment of  Aulny Morrison who, bhough.iiresident  of New Westminster, would be satisfactory to Vancouver and a Victoria  man, probably P. B. Gregory, will get  the other appointment providing he  agrees to reside in Rossland or Nelson.  The Senate tonight passed the second reading of the Grrurd Trunk Pacific bill shortly after a division. 21 to 11,  on Senator Ferguson's amendment for  delay until further investigation had  proved the feasibility of the scheme.  The end of  the  session   is  now in  sight. G_ood_progress. i3_h(_*ing_ma_de.  on tho supplementary estimates and  thc Government has introduced all  contemplated legislation.  Thero may be yet another hot debate  on the Oriental question. When Mr.  Bennett, of Simcoe, moved his amendment regarding the -employment of  Chinese and Japanese on the G. T. P.,  Hon. lt. W. Scott said it would be  unfair' to single out one railway and  hinted the question would be dealt  with by an amendment to the general  Railway Act. This has not been done  and 1 believe the whole question will  bo fought out again and the Government placed on record either for or  against tho employment of Orientals  by a resolution recommending amendment of the Railway Act in this  direction.  Though B. Cs latest Natal Act will,  it is believed, be disallowed now the  provincial elections are over I can hcm-  nothing definite on the subject. Itis  stated the Dominion Government are  awaiting assurances from Japan that  the alleged prohibition will be carried  out in entirety.  Quadrille Club.  The Revelstoke Quadrille Club will  hold its first dance of the season in  the Opera House oh Friday week, the  'iOth instant.

London, Oct. 20.��������� 2:.*10 p.m.���������The  engri.ssod copy of tho Alaskan Borni-  darv award was signed at 2:10 p.m.  That part of the award relating to  tlio Portland canal gives the United  States two ii-lnnils. Kamiaghuuut and  Sitkl.-rrr. ecririinanding the entrance, ol'  the Portland canal and tho ocean  passage to Port Simpson arrd destroy  ing tho strntegetrc value of Wales and  Penrse Islands which aie given to  Canada.  The "mountain line" adopted as the  boundary l!es so far from the coast as  to give tho United States substantially  all the territory in dispute. The lino  completely clears all tho bays and  inlets and means of access to the sea,  giving the United States a complete  land barrier between Canada and the  sea from the Portland carral to Mount  St. Elias.  Around the head of the Lynn canal,  tho line follows the watershed somewhat in accordance with the prerent  provi-jional boundary.  Tho .Canadian commissioners not  only declined to sigrr the award, but  said they would publicly withdraw  from the Commission.  They, as well as all the Canadians  connected with the case, are very bitter. Telegrams from Premier Lnurier  and other prominent persons in Canada' show that this sentiment is shared  generally throughout the Dominion.  In consequence of thc attitude maintained by the Canadian Commissioners,  Lord Chief Justice Alverstone decided  tlris morning uot to hold the proposed  public meeting of the Alaskan Boundary Commission, but to.baud its fleci-.  sion to -Messrs.' Foster aird Sifton.  respectively agents of the United  States and Canadian Governments.  NO USE CRYING.  The present meagre details of the  Alaskan Boundary Commission's de-  cesion became known too late for  reference in our editorial columns.  Accordingly we sum up here the view  we take of the matter.  First and foremost, the unfortunate  conclusion arrived at must be placed  solely on the lax method pursued in  regard to-place names. The main contention in the question just decided  was the location of Portland Channel  mentioned in the Treaty of 1825 between Great Britain and Russia. The  United States asserted that it was the  inlet now known as Portland Canal  while Canada maintained it was "the  present Belun Channel, the only body  of water reaching the 50th parallel of  latitude and having its mouth northerly from the southern point of Prince  of Wales island, tho direction set out  in the treaty in question. This contention has been decided against us  and now wc have to abide by the  decision. The majority of the commissioners have taken a most peculiar  _vie_w_qf the matter but' we must sub;  mit with the best grace wo can. How  a point due east can be called northerly wo are at a loss to ascertain, and  how a channel ear-marked as reaching  the 50th parallel can be cast aside in  favour of one failing to reach it by  many miles is a conundrum that can  onlybe solved when the details of the  evidence come to" hand. These particulars we await with interest.  The contentions of Canada regarding  the location of the .summit of the  mountains was more open to controversy and has also been decided  ngninstus. The reason for this is  obscure, but we believe that Lord  Alverstone, who gave, what might be  termed the casting vote, was animated  by only the principles of international  law a.s he conceives them. We have  absolutely no sympathy at present  with those who suggest ���������tkerwise.  Indiscriminate accusationsof treachery  against those who differ with us alfect  no one but the accuser. Until the full  details are known judgment must be  suspended. The action of the Canadian  Commissioners in refusing to sign the  award is also much to be regretted.  With or without their signatures the  award stands, and they would have  taken a much more dignified position  had they signed the award, as practically in duty bound, issuing forthwith  a statement of their reasons for disagreeing with it. Their school-boy-  like attitude shows a warrt of knowledge  of those courtesies that should govern  an international tribunal which, in our  opinion, may possibly account for the  ill success which has met their representations to the other members of tho  Commission.  But there's no use crying over spilt  milk. Canada, although sire loses all  the water-ways except one, still holds  the whip hand. Let the Laurier Government, that has ������o much money to  spend, build at once a national road  iuto the whole Yukon territory, tapping it where necessary lo reach the  dilferent gold fields. It i.s true that  right of navigation is given our neigh  bours to the south over all the rivers  by the Washington Treaty of 1871,  but let Canada pluce such prohibitive  duties on goods entering by these  routes as will stop United States commerce ever using theni. Lot Canada,  after giving reasonable compensation,  abrogate the charter of the White  Pass and Yukon Railway and place a  law on the Statutes making it* impossible to connect any railway built in  Canada with the Alaskan lisiero.  AVe will then be 'placed in even a  better position than before. We have  lost what we deemed our own ��������� but.  there is no use crying. The accusations of treachery all will be sorry for  when the pardonable heat of the present gives way to calm faith in the  future. Let only tho Dominion Government say "We have not what wo  thought we had, but WHAT WE  HAVE WE'LL HOLD," and they  will be backed up by every citizen of  tho Dominion from Atlantic to Pacific.  Don't cry gentlemen, but build such  hu impassable bnrrioras will make the  Urrited States lisiere be of such little  use that its possession will become a  farce.  Since tiro above was written the  Canadian Commissioner's have somo  what repented their childishness. They  have-issued a statement rind signed  the maps but not the award. IIow  much better would that have been in  the first instance. .  GRIT MOSES  The Rossland Barrister will lead  the Sweet Seventeen in Legislature ��������� Mclnnes Given the  Double Cross.  (l-'rom Oirr Own CoiTuspoinlcnl.)  ViCTOiiiA, B.C., Oct. 20.���������Last night  fifteen of the Liberal inembers-olect  chose a leaders in tho person of J. A.  MacDonald, K. C, of Rossland. The  absentees were Jones and Murphy of  Cariboo. The first ballot stood 5 each  for Henderson, McTnnes and MacDonald. On the second Mclnnes got 0,  MacDonald 5 and Henderson 4. Things  looked peculiar to the mairrlanders so  they decided to double cross Mclnnes,  Henderson and MacDonald retired to  consult and came back with a motion  to change procedure.

Contractor Kernaghan, the other  day, notified the Department of Public  Works thathis contract for the new  drill hall had been completed. It is  expected that in tho courso of a few-  days the supervising architect will  arrive to formally take it over on  behalf of tho Department. The new  edifice.isa-credit-vto-iall parties concerned and admirably adapted to the  purposes for which it is intended. The  interior fittings and joinery are particularly fine and are worthy of a  much more pretentious building.  * The main hall is -10x00 feet, well  lighted, and has at the further end a  spectators' gallery capable o������ accommodating some 50 people. From the  main hall a passage to the left leads to  the Armory, 20x20 feet which is well  fitted up. Along two walls are racks  for clothing aud accoutrements for the  42 men authorized, the rifles being  stored in a large arm and ammunition  chest. There is a travelling rack  running on rails to hold the 42 rifles,  airy of whicli can be reached in a  a moment. Shut In as they are from  all dust and dirt, thoy should be  very easily kept clean. Above the  arm ruck is a spacious cupboard for  storing ammunition and a long cleaning table, and armourer's desk complete the furnishings.  To the right of the armory are the  officers' and store rooms, the former  containing a handy lavatory and desk.  later. The store room is fitted up in a  most complete manner*, a. separate  shelf being allotted to everything  required aird a number of cabinets  with tho usual desks, etc., complete  its furnishing. All the interior work  is of local manufacture, carried out  under Contractor Kerimghan's direction, and is built of native woods  stained a dark walnut. The desks,  particularly, are first class pieces of  workmanship.  In the basement is the furnace' and  Morris tube gallery together with the  men's lavatory. From the number of  empty shells scattered round inside,  shooting must be popular with the  members of tho company.  There aro just two things that  should bo remedied.. The spectators'  gallery i.s too low and should be raised  at least two feet. At present it is  impossible to use the portion of tho  main hall under it without endangering the foresights of the rifles when  carried at the slope. 'The other thing  is the waste of space over the armoury  and other rooms at the back of tho  main hall. If it were floored and the  room walled .a splerrdid recreation  room would be provided for the men  at small expense. It would measure  about .40x20 and with the extension  of the heating system it would prove a  boon the whole year round. .  With these small exceptions, which  will probably be attended to in the  near future, the new drill hall is a  credit to the city, Capt. H.A. Brown,  and all those interested in securing its  construction are to be congratulated  on the success attending their eiloits.  a novelty, but passed, tho change  being that the two highest should be  balloted on first and then the winner  run against the low man. This was  pie for MacDonald who had arranged  for Henderson's vote, so out ho came  ahead of the othor "Mac," * 11 to I.  MacDonald and Henderson then  trotted a little heat and MacDonald  won out. And so the mantle of Joseph  has fallen on a man of no parliamentary experience.and whoso only qualification is that he is a good second  class lawyer.

The   Royal   City   up in   Arms  Regarding the Fraser River  Dredge Being Kept at  Victoria.  (From Our Own Corrc-jpoudrmt.)  New Webtminstek, 13. C, Oct. 20.-���������  The unwarranted ' transfer of the  dredge, King Edward, from the Fraser  river to Victoria where it is now pumping mud on James Bay flats is a more  sore point than over. The dredge in  question was built expressly for the  purpose of keepirrg the Fraser river-  channel clear and for over a year nothing in this direction has boon done. Iir  order to secure votes at the bye election  in Victoria Senator Templeman secured  its temporary transfer to the capital  but no one dreamed that it would ho  permitted to remain for a sufficient  time to endanger successful navigation  of the Fraser. Aulny Morrison, the  local member, has neglected to make  the proper representations and row  tiro trade of the. Royal city i.s most  seriously handicapped.  Tiro heavy freshet of this spring has  brought down more silt than ever  and tho Annieville bar1, a mile below  this city, has now only IS feet of water  at low tide whereas it should have at  least 25. The shallow extends for a  distance of nearly a mile, What  makes tho condition of affairs particularly unfortunate is that a ship with  a load of rails for the V. W. & Y.  Railway is waiting to unload here but  cannot get over this bar as she draws  22 feet of water. A heavy expense will  be incurred in lightering her and  unless this shallow is dredged out at  once it will be filled rrp even more  before spring.

It is not that  '.he number.of hours oi thc day's labor  is increased,  but  that  the   amount   ol  work per hour is greater.    The facilities  for'lessening'the drudgery of work have  rrrade a greater demand   upon  the attention   aud   skill   in   producing   thc  work.  And so it is with the social life of the  present age. The question of pleasure  has become absorbing. The thing is  no longer a menus to an end ; it has  become the end itself..

"Both by teaching and  example He lias given mankind the  .standard of the perfect lire. Just in  proportion as the world accepts this  -standard will it receive the more  abundant life which is its  inheritance.  The fever of life is the result of our  ���������tacperiment with the things that ought  lo make for our happiness. Somehow  -we cannot get the right proportion,  -and instead of receiving joy and peace  ���������and a larger life from our use of the  ���������mixture, v.e find ourselves weak and  .feverish and sick at heart.  Let us go to Him and take His liie  for our example. Let us note what  things He counted precious and what  things Hc rejected a? harmful to the  soul. Let us accept Him as the Way  and thc Truth and the Life. And He  jwill enter the room in which we are  'now lying sick of the fever of life, and  So will take us by the hand .ind lift rrs  up and fill us with new life for service  to His glory and the salvation of our  fellow-men.

Good poultry is always wanted, and  poor stuff is a drug in the market.  Thc time is coming when there will  be no sale at all for poultry of poor  quality, for those who carr alTord to  buy it at all will demand   thc best.  The green .crop plowed under is  composed of three chief parts. About  four-fifths  of it  is .water,  or  from So  to 88 per cent.; about one-fiftieth of  the whole, or 2 per cent., is composed  of what is called the ash ingredients,  and thc rest is the so-called organic  manner. This organic matter, which  is really the most useful part of lhe  green manure, makes up, therefore,  about a twelfth of the whale mass put  under the ground.  Kansas needs 5,000 men -to help 'harvest the great wheat harvest, and the  farmers are gcttiair. so desperate that  they are stopping express trains and  going through, offering large wages  for men to get off and work in the  fields.

Points of Wool.  In judging wool, thc following  points arc those of most importance:  Softness���������This is essential in good  fleeces, and the want of it is most  conspicuously noticed, if it is wanting, by examining Hie wool on thc  neck. Those fleeces are best which  abound in a sort of transparent oil,  which, after growing to the end of  the staple of the wool, attracts the  dust and gives the outside of tlie  fleece when on the sheep a darkish,  dirty appearance. This oily matter  is of service in hastening the growth  of the fleece, and in imparting softness, elasticity and strength to lhe  wool.  Soundness, or strength of fibre, is  an indispensable quality in wool. A  want of this invariably reveals itself  along the ridges of the back, where  there is a sort of division between the  wool of each side. To test it, pull a  lock or staple from this part, hold  to one end in each hand, and give it  a strong, steady pull. ; If the strands  break, the whole fleece is lacking in  soundness. This want of soundness  'is'generally .caused by bad feeding.  Fulness means the closeness with  which the locks of wbolgrdw together. Before opening the fleeces of  sheep possessing the quality in perfection, only a fine thin line of skin  will be seen around each lock of  wool. If defective, thc space between  the locks will be larger.  Frecncss���������This implies that the individual locks of wool, as also their  individual fibres, are not entangled, but  perfectly separate and distinct. The  wool on being opened in a well-bred  sheep should fall apart under the  hands clear and unbroken. 'A-wantof  frceness wiil show most plainly along j  the ridge of the back.���������C. G.

Ths course of the British money market  la being .watched with anxious Interest  by those responsible for tho finances of  Australia, says The London TMall. Four  of thu States are In want or further loans  so soon as there Is a prospect of .floating  them on the TLondon market. The neediest of all the borrower's l������ TNow South  Wales, whose Government Ik accused of  spending no less than -CM.ODJ.OOO of borrowed money jn a littlo over four years,  and using loans, on the admission of the  Minister of Public "Works, to stave off a  crisis.

Victoria,  needs ������1,100,000 Immediately, and must  shortly obtain a further ������5,C47,000 by hook  or by crook to pay oft an old loan which  matures on January 1. 1904. Queensland  wants *.. ������2,000,000, though sho is now of  all tho Australian States tho most heavily weighted with debt. Western Australia has placed ut home a loan of  ������4,750,000, but the other Australian States  are not likely to be able to follow her  example, for, as a Victorian "Minister recently remarked to a deputation, it was  out of the ([uestlnn to think of borrowing ������5.000,000 In Victoria. The last In tho  list is South Australia, who needs ������500.000.  which will ultimately have to be obtained  from London. Kcccnt analyses of the  various Australian debts show that the  dead-weight debt, making all deductions  for 'productive works. Is now as much per  head as the .national, debt of England.  Another unfavorable symptom Is that the  population of Victoria has actually declined in the 5'car 11102. Until great, economies are effected In the .government and  administration, and until tho extravagant  outlay on public works ceases, tho prospects for tho British investor cannot bo  considered roseate.  The Glorious F*oui*L'.i.  ���������There Is no blinking tlie fact Ihat,  In American cities, tho numml colehi'ail(.n  of tho Fourth of July has degenornted into an annual nuisance���������:i carnival ot  hoodlumism instead of a festival of patriotism."

The  TNow York Kvening-I-ost says: "It appears that the celebration Mils yenr wus  of nn exceptionally destructive character."  Tho Springfield Republican Is leading a  newspaper crusade against Fourth of  July "perversion." and offers somo definite suggestions for a saner and moro  appropriate celebration of tho day. It  proposes to limit the "carnival of noise"  to the morning hours, betweon four and  nine, and to allow tho pleasure-giving  ilroworks���������"tho rockets, the candles, the  brilliant bursting bombs"���������to havo right  of way In the evening. The afternoon,  suggests The Republican, might be devoted to suitable sports and patriotic exercises.  The British Book Market.  If tho British book market is'not a3  flourishing as it might be, says Tho London Graphic, English writers may draw  some consolation from tho fact, as shown  by statistics in the current number of  The Author, that they are selling a great  many more books abroad than thev did  five years ago. The book exports of 1U03  weighed over fifty -thousand hundredweight more than those in tho year before the war, and this additional quantity  represented a money value of nearly threo  hundred thousand pounds. The books  sent to the United States last year, worth  in all ������371,417, showed an Increased value  of nearly seventy thousand pounds over  those in lSDS���������a significant development  when It Is remembered that tho practice  of copyrighting, and therefore of printing, Knglish books in the "United States  Is Toacoming more and more common, and  that consequently export figures are far  from Indicating the full value of the American market. At ter our transatlantic  cousins the next best foreign buyers ���������  though longo intervallo���������ara Germany,  France, and, remarkable to say, Japan.  It ls interesting to note that while our  imports of books during the war naturally  fell off considerably, the book exports to  foreign countries and to the colonies went  up during those years by leaps and  bounds. It Is also noteworthy that among  the colonies Canada alone shows a decrease in,the value of the books she imports from us���������a circumstance attributed  partly to the proximity of the United  States, and partly to the enter-prise of  Canadian publishers in issuing editions  of their own.  ... and  ���������.'ladings the  \ Apple Blight. ���������   ;  A number ot   reports   irom    widely ]  separated districts, complaining  ot* the j  ravages of the apple blight, have been ;  received  by thc   Fruit  Division,   Otta-.:  wa.   Mr. Peter   Anderson,   TH epworth, .  Ont, thus describes ithe situation in his  locality:���������"Apples, both early and winter,  are suffering  from  a  new disease  here.   A  blight   struck   the    blossoms  when in lull bloom and withered them  as  if  they had been  scorched   by  tire.  It is  now  withering   the   small   twigs  W1d^linibs^in*--tne^  Pure white, it is said, will be less  popular, but all thc off-color whites���������  oyster, mushroom, breadcrumb, etc.���������  will have great vogue. Two-tone effect';  will he pushed in wool fabrics and  French manufacturers threaten ns with  mixtures of bright colors, which they  call cake walk mixtures.  Broadcloth heing largely ordered.  and zibcline in countless varieties will  be a feature of the season. Scotch  plaids and thc soft-lined, subdued  French interpretations of tartan plaid  will appear again.  In trimming nothing startlingly new  is announced so far. New developments of the dangling ornament.:*,  fringes, cut out appliques, embroidcricr  of all sorts are promised, and lace w'.l  be much used, although it i.s confidc.'.t-  ly asserted that the day of the CVuny  and antique craze is past.  oi thc trees look as if '.ire had been  applied to about one-hnH of the smaller branches untri the leaves were all  crisp and brown, and even thc wood,  as far as this extends, is evidently  dead." Mr. Arch. MacColl, Aldboro,  Ont, writes that many orchards in his  locality are almost completely _ ruined  by blight, and that many trees wiil have  to be cut out.  It is difficult to explain the origin  of this trouble, but it is evident!}' or a  bacteria! nature. lt appears to >:*.*=  over thc winter just in the margin oi  thc affected part, near the heskhy  wood, and not in other parts ot" tne  tree or in the soil. Mr. VV. T. Ma-  coun of thc Experimental Farm agrees  with Mr. MacKinnon,' Chief o: the  Fruit Division, that the only remedy  is to cut out thc blighted branches well  below thc affected part, say_ one -root  below any appearance of blight, lhe  knife used for this purpose should he  ���������thoroughly cleaned or sterilized beiore  6cing again used on healthy wood. It  is fortunate that the disease sometimes dies out of its own accord, especially in the case of the body blii-ht.  It is sard to be conveyed from tree to  tree by bees and insects, which would  account for the great increase at blossoming time. Thc b'.ight appear.* to  develop very rapidly, and lire maximum  amount of damage is done alrji-.-t >*  ���������soon as thc attack becomes notic*::ii*ic.  It will probably be found, that the fall  is the best time lo cut out the affected wood, as the damage svill not hc  much, if any, greater then than at  present, and in the fall one may make  jure of getting all thc blighted portions.  As anything which stimulates an  undue growth of succulent wood is  /onducive to blight, it would be well  loT thc orchardist to cultivate anel man-  are so as to produce a medium growth  ol strong healthy wood.  Aberdeen's New House. T"1*  The Earl and Countess of Aberdeen,  \vho have been in London most of the  season, are building a new house for  themselves on their Aberdeenshire estates. It is in a different part of the  country from their chief scat, Uaddo,  which gives the title to their eldest son,  Lord Haddo. On one occasion Mr. Gladstone visited it, and it has, of course, associations with another Prime Minister,  the fourth Lord Aberdeen, lie was Frem-  ler about the time that Queen Victoria  and Prince Albert first went to Balmoral.  Lord Aberdeen has a second estate towards that beautiful quarter ot Aberdeenshire, and he is replacing the old mansion  on it with a new one. As it happens, a  neighboring proprietor is Sir John Clark,  whose father, Sir James Clark, the eminent physician, had a large voice in de-  torminine on iJeeslde for a Royal residence. Tlio wcit coast of Scotland had  been thought about, but Q-iecn Victoria  and Prince Alhert accepted Sir James*  =vie*iv-in^f5^-.r^^-th(i^Ui&rdP'-'i"ir&JJ3Isl*ir-  lands as having a drier and moro brac-  Ina climate.  Arnold and Pond.  "When Matthew Arnold ;*..*? a young man  saw Hejiworth Dlrrm'.-i book3'In tho shop  window*, he could not help exclaiming  with pride that he, too, was an author.

The West End of London has been for  tho last tew days a part of Paris, says  The London Express. In Regent street,  which ought to be called the Boulevard  du Regent, one has heard nothing but  "Dis done," "Oh, '.**.. Is," and other  strange phrases. Restaurant keepers  have Imagined themselves out of tho jurisdiction of the licensing magistrates, and  only remembered by a great effort to  close at 12.u0, and the waiters have become quite civil when receiving the modest Parisian tip ot a penny. A country clergyman yesterday afternoon became almost terrliied after asking six  persons the way from Piccadilly circus  to the Royal Academy, and receiving the  polite answer, "Millc pardons, monsieur,  je ne puis pas parlor anglais." But perhaps the most striking feature of tho  French conriuost has been the neat, blue-  coated Frenchman selling Le Journal at  freciuont Intervals from Shaftesbury avenue to Oxford circus. Tlrey havo been  brought hero by tho enterprising proprietors of tho Paris paper, ���������and the  copies thoy receive about 4 in the afternoon are sold at the ordinary Paris  prices. The men speak ho Knglish -, thoy  do not need lt. Every passing policeman  politely says "Bon jour," and the native  newspaper sellers show their feeling for  the ententeocordiale by pulling them on  the back and -shouting "Good old France.;'  "How do you like London '.'" one of tho  camelots was asked. "Oh, c'ost magnl-  liriuc; Ies anglais sont bons gurcons. Vivo  rAngleterre I" was the reply. "Bravo ;  'ear, 'oar���������" added his neighbor, a grlny  gentleman selling souvenirs, and they  both went round the corner to find how  "la biero anglalse"  tasted.  Should Ladies Wear Socks?  The question as to whether English  ladies should wear, socks, after the .example of their American cousins, says  Tho London Express, was earnestly discussed yesterday In the West End and In  the large wholesale hosiery houses in tho  city. The general opinion of the heads  of largo drapery firms was that the fa'sh-  lon would never become popular in England. In an interview with an Express  representative the managing partner of  a firm near St. Paul's Churchyard said:���������  "The idea that well-bred English women  will adopt the latest American tad o������  wearing socks instead of stockings Is a  ridiculous one. A certain class of women who call themselves 'the smart set'  may do so, but I do not think that even  they would have the hardihood to walk  down Regent street in .broad daylight  wearing gaily-colored socks and a short  skirt. A woman who ventured out attired in such a manner would stand a  poorer chance of setting the fashion than  thoso strong-minded females who attempted to adopt tho 'rational costume'  and walked about in bloomers somo three  years ago. No ilrst-class hotel or restaurant would admit them, and they would  probably bo followed through the str-eets  by a crowd of idle loafers,"  Is it a Vandyck?.  ' There ls at present being carefully  guarded in Manchester a picture which Is  declared by many experts to be a Vandyck. Others Incline to the opinion that  it is a Rubens. It treats of a Scriptural  subject���������tho offer of Abraham to sacrifice Isaac. The history of the picture is  remarkable. For many years lt hung  neglected in an old Cheshire mansion,  one of the sons of tlie family ultimately  exchanging it for two diamond bracelets  and a breast pin. It changed hands at  cheap rates frequently in its grimy state  unUl it reached a man who, llndlng it  cumbrous in his house, gave It to a Mr.  John Bolton of Manchester, who had It  cleaned and kept It for twelve years..

This English is nearly always ludicrous,  and Lady Curzon has a huge collection  of flne specimens of it. Recently she got  from Bombay an addition to Iter collection, a letter that two brothers sont out  to their patrons on tho death of their  father, who had been the head of the firm.  The letter ran: "Gentlemen���������XVe have  thc pleasure to inform you that our respected father departed this life on the  10th inst. His .business will be conducted  by his beloved sons, whose names are  given below. The opium market is quiet  and Mai. 1,500 rupees per chest. O death,  where is thy sting?

We remain, etc."  Wirt Gen-are, in his volume on "Greater Russia," says, that in the Czar's country one may not call another a fool-  there is a Scriptural injunction against  that, and it is consequently a legal offence, too. Not long ago, a. "vint" plav-  cr called his partner a fool for needlesslv  trumping their trick. The offended man  brought his accuser before the court. The  culprit pleaded provocation, and, knowing that the judge would ho a passionate follower of the national game, explained the matter in detail.

When Gladstone was first a member  of tlie Cabinet, liis young wife dropped  a word dn the presence of some of Iris  colleagues which implied that she was  acquainted with a matter of great importance. Realizing that she had made  a slip, she left tihe room and wrote a  note of apology, whicli ehe sent to her  husband by a servant. The reply that  came back was to this effect: "Dearest  C. Don't blame yourself. I don't .blame  you. It's the only little mistake you  ever made. Your aflectionartc, W. E. G."  In later years when people tried to  "pumpV Mrs. Gladstone; her look of ignorance was bland and convincing. "Well  Mrs. Gladstone, what is Mr.-Gladstone  gouig to do ahout the Irish Church?"

Visitors to Washington will recall the  'bronze statue of Abraham Lincoln in  the center of Lincoln Park. It was purchased with a fund raised by former  slaves to commemorate their liberator.  There is a replica of the statue in Boston, reared hy the liberality of Moses  Kimball. Bostoriians tell a story concerning the remark of Oliver Wendell  Holmes when he whs lirst. shown the  Lincoln statue in Boston. Beneath that  statue and on thc granite base was an  inscription telling thc history of the  memorial. The name of Moses Kimball  appeared in letters of very large size;  in fact, live or six times as large as were  the letters in the name of .Lincoln. Dr.  Holmes glanced at the * monument, and,  catching sight of the name of the giver  in 'big letters, dryly remarked: "Well!  well!. How,Moses Kimball has changed!"

This letter gave Mr. Saybrook tho  tlvllest satisfaction. Yet, with his  ���������usual caution, he considered lt from  jevery point of view. But he could find  in It nothing to awake suspicion. In  fact, lt seemed to him that Claude had  unwittingly played Into his hand in  a manner that he had had no reason to  expect. He wns quick to see several  points in the letter that might r-rove  of the highest advantage ln tho furtherance of his plans. The order- removing  old Carl from Uolff House was particularly pleasing to him. It opened tho  ���������way for his plans in a most acceptable  manner. He was dialing and fretting  ���������under the enforced delay in his schemes,  but here was a chance offered him for  an important step, and he determined  bo take advantage of it.  ���������'. CHAPTER XIII.  Tirrom his correspondence with Claude,  Anthony Saybrook was enabled to draw  two conclusions: first, that the young  man's confidence in him remained unshaken; and, second, that under no  probable circumstances wan. he likely  to contemplate a speedy return to his  native land.  This result of his diplomatic letter  was very gratifying to him, and cleared the way for the progress of his plans  ��������� In a manner that was highly encouraging. As usual with him, he flattered  ���������������������������: himself that it was all due to his own  ���������shrewd management, and his confldenco  ln his ability to consummate his elaborate plots was greatly Increased.  H������ foresaw that Claude, in any event,  in view of his resolution to remain in  Europe, would soon require the raising  of new fundi*, and whether events so  favored him or not as to lead to tho  adoption of his bold and dangerous  game to come into possession of Rolff  ���������House, he had no doubt that he could  bo entangle and manage the young man  . as to assure ultimate success to his  schemes even though no war broke out  to raise a barrier between hiin and his  victim and leave him free to carry out  (What he'considered his "bold stroke."  Ralph, as usual, had the full confl-  aence of his father in all his plans. A  perfect understanding existed between  the two. The law ot hereditary qualities was strikingly Illustrated in the essential likeness between the charactei-3  of this precious pair. Ralph was loss  .mature and experienced in mere craft,  but in cool, calculating, mercenary  spirit he waa not a whit behind his  father. In fact, while the parent retained a certain affectation of virtuous  motives even in the presence of those  tt waa not necessary to deceive, and  ���������while discussing plans of the most unmitigated villainy���������a habit quite common with those who have pursued a  progressive course in dishonesty from  =-������*r.n-original-standpolnt^o������=hesltancy*-**-=  With Ralph there was no such pretension of respect for virtue where its use  -waa not required. He had been so early,  Initiated Into the arts of trickery and  'dishonesty that the habit of equivocate  - tng with his conscience had never been  ���������formed. The only difference between  Ithe two men was that Ralph was the  bonester and more direct rogue of tha  ���������two.       .'.  i They understood each other perfectly.  She elder Saybrook greatly admired  ("Ralph's nonchalance and directness in  any equivocal work, while the latter  ���������aid not fall to return a full measure  . of admiration of his father's craftiness  and skill. Each worshipped with ardent  eeal a certain deformed idol of Respectability, whose chief supports were  iwealth and "position,, and. each was  equally inured to the idea that a certain amount of moral crookedness was  necessary and laudable in the pursuit  ot wealth and power.  Ralph had been away on some business duties in'a neighboring village at  ���������the time of the arrival of Claude's letter; but, on his return, his father lost  ���������no time In communicating to him its  (welcome contents.  : They sat do-.vri to discuss the letter  4n the little law ofllce.  ���������i "Everything continues to work favorably," remarked the elder Saybrook.  ["������������������'The result so far shows that r have  mot made'a single miscalculation. I  think I lrave seen my way pretty clear,  jan.d,. by my knowledge of the younjs  "���������man's character and purposes, 1 have  "been enabled so. far fairly to discount  the future. I suppose I should be .satisfied. I know I ought to* feel confluence'in myself. But I nm terribly  nervous and anxious. Every day's delay grinds me. Oh, for a chance for my,  bold stroke! Ah, Ralph, If I could only  control poUtlcal events for a week! But,  pshaw! It won't do to be visionary. I  ���������have every reason to congratulate mjr-  aelf on securing the removal of that  old dog of a Carl Crum,   Ha, ha, hoar.  are you to put in old Crum's place 1"  '��������� !   "There is a point that puzzles me."  ' replied    the    elder,    corrugating    hla  brows.    "It is  hard  to  pick  out Just  such a man as I want.   It will be necessary to select seaiebody we can trust  to  a considerable extent,  and yet  he  must not be toa sharp for us.   I havo  thought over every person at all avall-  I able, and I don't know but that, on the  .whole, TLeb. Sackett is our man.   He ia  1 shre.wd and serviceable, If we can only  trust  him  far  enough.      But,     really,  ithere is nobody else who will do at all.  > rather think we must take him.    I  '  fancy T Can manage him well enough.  I [What do you think, Ralph?"  "Why, I think he is Just the man, lt  (we can only make him available. But  OT have some doubts on that score. I  have heard him talking several times  on the subject of the stories they tell  about Rolff House, and It struck mo  that he was rather inclined to be superstitious and give credence to the  wildest tales of the popular fancy. In  that case, lt might be hard to induce  him to enter a house that Is reported  to be haunted.  "Oh, leave that to mo," Interposed  the elder Saybrook. "I fancy Sackett  takes a sort of pleasure In encouraging  the superstitious notions of people, but  he is a world too* shrewd to take much  capital In tho common run of spooks.  'At least, we can soon judge as to that.  Nobody has been hurt yet by spirits at  Rolff House,'and I don't think Sackett  ,wlll decline, a liberal compensation to  do as we want him to."  "You are, the * best Judge," replied  Ralph.  . "I shall endeavor to see him within  a day or two," pursued the father, "and  I shall sound hlni carefully before committing myself to any agreement witb  him."  With this understanding, the conver������  6ation on the subject closed.  True to his word, Anthony Saybrook  promptly sent for Leb. Sackett, and tho  next day that cerulean Individual put  in  an appearance  at  the  law  oflice.  A few words .sufficed to introduce th-***  subject of the vacancy to occur in Rolff  House.  "It is not necessary to stato the rea ���������  Rons why old Carl is to be superseded,"  pursued the lawyer. "But, as trustee  of the estate, it is necessary for me to  secure a reliable man to take his place.  I have sent for you, Mr. Sackett, believing you would be a good person to consult In regard to the matter. Do you  know of anyody who would be likely tb  meet my idea of a thoroughly reliable  wan?"  TLeb. Sackett half-closed his cold, lustreless eyes, and his vacant countenance  became a shade more blank and meaningless���������-a fact which probably indicated that he was concentrating his mind  to a reflective state. After a moment,  he said:  "'Taint everyody who would want  to live ln Rolff House."  , "And why not?" queried the lawyer.  "'Why' enough," replied Mr. Sackett "The place Is a regular old ghost  trap. Some say the Old Boy himself  makes lt his headquarters at certain  times. TThether all the. stories they tell  about It are true or not, most people  *fc*lleve'them-rand-*there-lsn't-one-man-'ln-.j  a dozen you could get to go near the  old house, much less to live ln lt."  "But do you believe these stories,  Mr. Sackett?"  "Well, I've heard 'em on good authority, and perhaps I've seen some  things myself. All I can say is, where  there Is so much smoke there ls pretty  ���������ure to be some fire."  "But If the common run of people aro  so superstitious, Mr. Sackett, do to be  afraid of* ghosts In Rolff House, surely  a man of your strong mind and keen  cense ia not."  "If you mean.to offer me the place."  Interposed Mr. Sackett, "I'll say tliat I  ain't to be seared by ghosts or hobgoblins of any kind. I never knew 'em to  hurt anybody. If there are ghosts In  Rolff House, I won't disturb them arid  I don't think they will disturb me. Besides, I. know a thing or two about such  matters. I've studied demonology for  some years, and we* have some secrets  In our family that everybody don't  knowj Ghosts ain't very pleasant  neighbors, perhaps, hut I'd rather havo  them than most men."  "Well said," replied the lawyer.-with  a pleasant smile. "And to cor.ie'��������� ripiit  down to business, Mr. Sackett, I believe  you would perhaps be just the man I  want; and your knowledge of gho^t  matters might be of some use to rr.3."

There can be little doubt that the Toala wore the primitive inhabitants of Celebes, and that  they were driven to take refupre. in' the  mountains by the Malay invaders, with  whom, however, they now hold a certain  amount of:.intercourse.

She little 'knew that; by  collusion with tlio postmaster, her. own  letters had been confiscated by hor  fathers as well as those of Claude.  The truth was that Anthony Say-  rook had succeeded in so thoroughly  working on the prejudices of the old  farmer as to greatly intensify his antipathy to Claude. Knowing his utter  Ignorance -of art and inability to ar;-  preolc.te Claude's ambition, he frequently read him passages from Claude's  letters * -that. were in the somewhat  strained and affected style of the literature of the time. The glowing descriptions of art galleries, palaces and  t������mplsa, the comments on the. glitter  and luxury of Venltlan life, and the  Hreljr accounts of carnivals and festl-  **}������. all tended to convince the unsophisticated farmer that ClauaTe was.  leading a life of wildest dissipation and  extravagance.

AGRICULTURAL  ADVERTISING.  -MORRISSEY^-EXPEOSION:  The explosion at Morrissey last  tveek. whereby four miners lost their  lives, emphasizes the necessity of  British Columbia being permitted a  free hand in immigration matters.  Under the B. N. A. Act the province  liiio power lo legislate in this matter  when not in conflict with Dominion  f-tatiiles, but so narrow has been the  construction placed on this power by  the authorities at Ottawa thai it might,  just as well be non-existent. The  Natal Act was not aimed wholly at  Orientals but also any class of immigration that might be a menace to Lire  common weal. It's repeated disallowance has caused a most .serious condition of alfair-s in the Kootenays, even  more objectionable in its features limn  the Chinese in Diinsmnii's mines aL  tbe coast.  Taking full advantage of lhe tax  immigration laws the Crow's Nest,  Coal Company have imported hundreds  of aliens of a most undesirable kind.  Tlie scum of Hungary and Galicia have  been brought, into this province and  ive hove not the slightest hesitation in  saying that their- presence has :i great  deal to do with the frequent explosions  at that company's colleiies. Totally  uneducated, hardly understanding a  ���������jrord of English, tlrey bave.  beerr and  Mr. W. V. Leonard, ,T. P., makes a  very good suggestion in a communication printed elsewhere in this issue.  The agricultural capabilities of British  Columbia, could in no way be hotter  advertised than by exhibits of farm  products in various large cities in  Great Britain.  The arrangements, however,   worrld  require-, to   be carefully thought out  and provision for  cold storage during  transport,     and     afterwards,    made.  This   would   be tbe  principal item of  expense.     The    Dominion maintains  immigration   offices'   in   seven   of tho  large citios of   the old ��������� country, and  advantage; should   be   taken   of   this  organization. As to the actual method  of exhibition several  courses  may be  pursued and  the question here arises  whether   the    class     of     immigrants  required should not be drawn from the  agricultural   districts   rather than the  large- centres of population'.    If such is  the case, the scheme would have to be  varied.     In some parts of the United  States travelling exhibits   have  been  prepared.which are carried from place  to place in a specially  constructed car  drawn by four horses.    These exhibits  arc   renewed, from. time  to time, by  shipments from si  central point where  adequate   cold   storage   facilities   are  maintained to keep perishable articles  such   as   fruits   nnd   some   classes of  vegetables   in   first   class     conditio**-,.  Accompanying the  exhibits is a competent   man   who   can   deliver  short  talks   on   the   various sections represented and in this way an object lesson  is placed   before smaller communities  that   cannot be  reached in any other  way.      If,   either   in   addition   to  otitis tend   of _th*JL-^y?li-!2Lt.i^P-._JJ*!..-Ja?'S|j  towns, something of the character  outlined was taken up we believe it  would be of great benefit.  Mr. Leonard's suggestion should  bear fruit. Thc expense would not he-  great and the effect, should be good.  Many would become interested irr a  prize pumpkin who consider immigration pamphlets orrly suitable for lighting the fire. In this connection the  Government should take up tint quc.s  tion of district exhibits at the Fall  fairs. Why not arrange with the  various Agricultural Associations that  the district exhibits at 'Sew Westminster, Victoria, Kamloops, Nelson  and other places become the property  of the Government and bo used for  advertising purposes. Shipped by  fast freight l.hey would reach Groat  Britain in good condition nnd, every  district being represented, oporr the  eyes of our brother's across the Atlantic to the capabilities of the Pacific  Province. This would bo a yearly  affair arid could, we believe, be  arranged with vevy little. dilTictill.y.  Last evening Thus. Taylor, M.P.P..  for- Iho Ilevolstoko district, and Messrs.  Ike Thompson nnd Mv. Bodine, the  latti-i-a Kevelstoke resident until of  late, but who now expects to make Iris  home in Vancouver, wero seen by a  Lodger representative nnd asked their  opinion as to the I'opljircrock country  and tho rather pessimistic report of  Provincial Mineralogist. I'obei-tson.  Their-answer was very emphatic, lint*  from a positive knowledge of the  country it could not be too highly  spoken of.  "J think it only right and fair in the  interest, of the Poplar creek section,"  Air. Taylor said, "(hat it should bo  particularly stated that the good  reports from that section arc true,  and are not exaggerated."  Mr. Thompson stated that he had  just conn; from there, as had Mr." Bodine, irrrd both of the gentlemen had  spent several weeks in visiting the  dilferent camps of Poplar creek. The  showing, thoy say, is the greatest evor  seen in any mining crimp. For instance, one specimen, weighing (ive  pounds, contained over three' pounds  of gold. Mr. J. ,T. Young brought out  with hirrr, after a visit to the Lucky  Jack mine, in which he was interested,  a buckskin sack, in whicli was over  $3,000 in quarts nuggets. The $200,-  000 purchase price for the Lucky Jack,  Little Phil, and Lucky Three group,  was paid yesterday at Ferguson,  $45,000 irr cash and $ig,*5,000 in stocks  in the Poplar Crook Consolidated Co.,  which embraces also the Oyster-Criterion, with its. mill in operation. Tho  company is incorporated at $1,500,000  aird the stock can be sold at par today.  ���������Vancouver Ledger.  M. J". Morgan and Phil O'Connor of  the Lucky Jack group, have returned  from 11 visit to the Spokane fair aud  ine going back to Poplar today says  the Nelson News. Phil O'Connor was  in charge of tho Great.Nortliern Mines  exhibit at, the fair with W. B. Pool  and Jacob Dover.  He says that the exhibit attracted a  great "deal-of. attention from all classes  of-visitors. Laymen were struck by  the marvellous richness of the small  nuggets and gav.od with wonder on  the chunks of ������oUl and icing of gold  that covered the pieces of rock exhibited, but the old-time, miners, the  wise men from California, looked at  the immense specimens of telliiride  arrd threw up their- hands.  ���������'It was something outside their e\-"j  perience," said O'Connor with n  chuckle.- ."and you can bet that our  exhibit at Spokane will add hundreds  lo the boom rush 'that- is going lo  strike Poplar in the spring."  This wonderful exhibit of free gold  ore which has excited so much comment wherever seen is now booked  for the World's Fair at St. Louis. It-  will probably be first shown at Winnipeg but the company has alreadv  promised the St. Louis commissioners  that it .will be there during the  exhibition.  LE MA..STH.E -S SCOTT.  Barristers.

On that date the oontrai-l fnr the con-  struotion of tiro Canadian P-iciHe Knil-  wiiy was .signed and a sure spot in the  relations between this Province anil  the .Dominion feiiniveil. As tlio position occupied hy Hritish Columbia in  regard to the lirst transcontinental  railway is not; generally understood  ive take this opportunity of recalling  the circumstances.  The Terms of Union with the Dominion were settled early in 1871, arrd  on JMny JOth of that year ratilied hy  Imperial Order in Council. Prominent' among the conditions ol* such  union was the provision for the construction of a railway from the seaboard of JBri lish Columbia to connect  with the railway system of Eastern  Canada. It was also provided that  such railway should he. commenced  simultaneously at both ends within  two years and completed within ten.  Immediately   the   union   was  completed  the  work   Of exploration   arrd  survey commenced  but, owing to the  large territory that had to be covered,  when the   time   limit   for commencement of construction expired on- 1st  ���������Inly,   1S73,   the    suiveys   were     not  sufiiciently   advanced   to   enable   the  Dominion   to comply  with the Terms  of Union.    There had always   been a  strong parly in  tho  Province opposed  to   Confederation   and   their    outcry  became   roost   pronounced.      In fact,  until the road was   completed, a continual agitation   was  maintained.    In  1S7T-S   the   so   called  "Pacillc Scandal"  caused   the   retirement   fronr office of  Sir  John   A.   .Macdonald,   who    had  strenuously endeavoured to carry out  the conditions whereby we joined the  Dominion, and Hon.

Sir John   JMacdonald's government had decided  upon Jisquimalt  as the terminus, a  conclusion satisfactory to Victoria, and of courso meeting  no objection  as   there was practically  no   population   on   the mainland seaboard.

Alexander  Mackenzie   introduced his  Pacific Railway Bill which eliminated  the Island entirely  from  the project  and   practically -settled*    settled ��������� the  terminus at Port JMoody, on Burrard  Inlet.   Victoria then became a hot bed  of discontent rind the Provincial Government made most strong protests to  the Imperial and Dominion authorities.  JMr. .Mackenzie sent out a confidential  -agent, but thc Provincial administration   would   have   nothing to do with  him   believing  that   the    Mackenzie  Government did not wish to do justice  to British Columbia.   So deep was.the  feeling that Hon. G. A. Walkem, then  attorney-general,   went   to    England  armed with a petition from the Provincial   executive.'     AVhile   there   he  negotiated - what  are   known  as  the  ������������������Carnarvon   Terms"   and    prevented  what threatened to be an open rupture  between the Province and Dominion.  Among the  provisions were the commencement of the line from Esquimau  at once, vigorous work  on thc mainland,   immediate    construction   of  a  wagon road and  telegraph line, that  not  less   than   $2,000,000   per annum  should  be spent on construction and  that the railway should  be completed  to Lake Superior and opened not later  =thiin"lst^.riinuaryHS91-===-These-=ternis  were agreed upon   by all parties concerned   and   a   hill   embodying thorn  introduced in tho House of Commons.  It  was  passed   there   but    when    it  reached    the   Senate    was  defeated.  Louder grew the protests and separation   was   openly   threatened.     Lord  Duft'eriri,   then. Governor-General, in  1770 came   to   the Pacific coast on the  praiseworthy mission  of allaying the  discontent   but  so   incensed -was  the  population of Victoria at the repudiation of  the Carnarvon  Terms  that a  banner hearing the legend "C. P. R. or  Secession" was stretched across Government street  directly in  his course  to Carey Castle.     He refused to countenance    this   insult    and  .abruptly  changed  Iris   route  to  avoid passing  under the objectionable banner.    Lord  Dutferin's   celebrated   speech .during  his visit did  much to allay the discontent for a time, but matters grew from  bad   to   worse  and  1878 saw nothing  done  towards the railway.    Early in  that year came the actual attempt at  separation.   A petition was forwarded  to the Queen asking that the Province  be   permitted   to withdraw from the  Union if the Carnarvon "Terms were  not ctii'i-iod out.   This brought matters  to a focus and a definite promise **V.*l*i  given by,tho Dominion  for. immediate  construction and vigorous prosectitijir  of   the   work   to   a   conclusion.   The  JMacken/.io administration was defeated   about  this   time and u new Mac-  tlonald government .formed,    It wishing to   fulfil   the   promise to have the  terminus   at   JSxqnimnlt'  some  delay  arose.     The   government   desired   to  ascertain if some other than the I-'nism-  valley   route 'was  possible so thaithe.  island could   he  reached  and Victoria  pacified.     This being declared impracticable  Mackenzie's selecl.iorr of  Port  Moody was   iipnrovcd   and a contract  entered ji)i:o  Willi Onderdonk for corr-  stru'itioi!   cast   I'roiri  the co.-rsl. to Sn-  vouas Koi-i-y.    Eyeii this I'rrringeriient  did not satisfy thu Provincial iiuthori-  ties who insisted on the islniid railway  1 to England wilh another petition to  lier Majesty. The Earl of Kirrrlierly,  then Secretary of State, arranged  final terms, viz,, tlu construction of  the E. it N. railway, compensation folium completion of Ihe C. P.

Very many people seem to think  that Hritish Columbia cannot secure  provincial lights hy lighting for flicin.  There are still iptestions to be fought  to a finish and tlie province will win if  the people only stand shoulder to  shoulder as they did when another  Liberal administration, that of Alexander Mackenzie,tineatened to deprive  them of constitutional rights urrder  tin/Terms of Union.

In the middle of the fourteenth cent-air John of Gaunt. Duke of Lancaster, the famous son of King Edward III.  of England, married the Infanta  Blanche, beir to the throne of Castile.  Unfortnnntely the lady had been  ���������supplanted by hor cousin, who had  seized and held thc throne.  Twenty-five years after this marriage  war bro!*"*. out between Portugal and  Castile. l-'ngland was the ally of Portugal. The Duke of Lancaster headed  the English forces. Hc fought with a  ���������will. Victory meant that his wife, the  Dutchess, would be Queen of Castile.  The Kin? of Povtneal. too. interested him. He was a fine young man of  twenty-sis.  He was tall and handsome and hnd  wavy black hair and large dark eyes.  He was a brave soldier ana a good  horseman.  In some ways he was unlike most  kings, lie cared nothing for tho  drunken bouts and coarse pleasures in  ���������which his companions indulged. He  ���������was noted for ihe remarkable purity  of his life. His people called him John  the Perfect. They were devoted to  him.  Three years before an English  Knight, on a visit to the King of Portugal, had died suddenly. At the last  moment he placed in tho hand of the  King a miniature painting. He attempted to say something in explanation.   It was too late.  The picture was of a beautiful, but  unknown, maiden. Rippling fair hair  ���������haded .her round pink cheeks. Her  blue eyes gazed steadily into the  King's dark ones.  Days, weeks, months passed, and the  King* still studied the miniature. He  ���������was enthralled by the fair unknown.  "Had I but learned her name before my good friend died!" he sighed  n. thousand times. "Who can she he?"  he wondered. There was no response.  Several years passed.  ��������� To cement his alliance 'with the Eng-  Bsh he proposed to the Duke of Lancaster that he give him one of his  "daughters. The Duke was pleased. It  ���������would advance bis plans.  "I have two daughters," he said.  "Philippa. who is twenty, and Catharine, who is seventeen. Your Majesty  can have which you choose."  "In these affairs of state it matters  little," said the King, sadly. "Let it  be the older, to more nearly match  my own age."  The Duke returned at once to England to prepare his daughter for this  royal marriage. He carried with him  s -portrait of the King.  There was no choice, for Philippa.  "Fortunately, th**: fair English maid  ���������was pleased with the dark beauty oi  the King. She wondered if he would  admire her.  "At least he shall not know that I  care at all for him." she thought, for  she was a high-spirited girl.  The  marriage was  by  proxy.      This  ���������was not uncommon in royal families  long ago. ,,:.,,    i.  The olgnity of a ki-*.g forbade him to  ���������go from his own land to seek his  bride. Yet the Lady Philippa of Lancaster was grand-daughter of the King  of England. She must be married in  ter own country.  The King sent as his proxy a great  Archbishop. He travelled in royal  Etate, attended by many nobles.  After the ceremony Philippa. as  Queen of Portugal, went, in care of  the Archbishop and all his train, to  the husband whom in her heart she  loved, and whom she knew cared not  for her.  On her arrival ln Portugal she was  _taken_ to a grand  castle    where    the  ~*maJ^"*rge^cereroonyiwasito-be-������perfor.m*^  cd on the following day with the King  instead of his proxy.  After Philippa bad rested from the  fatigues of tbe Journey she prepared  to give au.Hence to the King In the  great drawing room of the castle.  She was attired In a magnificent  Tobe of white satin embroidered yrith  gold. It had a court train of royal  purple velvet bordered with pearls.  Her golden hair was dressed very high  and In its coils were sel a tiara of  amethystr..  I Her ladles withdrew that the young  people might have no witness lo their  ���������meeting. She was alone.  ' From a window -hp girl watched thr*  approach of the King. She noted how  ���������fcandsome he was with a suit of line  itgreen velvet, with silver-gray satin  trimmings. Yet she wa.s angry with  Therself that she admired him.  "Nothing does he care for mc!" she  idhought, bitterly.  - She drew herself up with great dignity as he entered the room. Ho bowed low before her and commenced  some formal speech.  Then the wbrds died upon his lips.  The shock of .'���������. great surprise kept  Thim silent. Before him stood the lady  of the mv.iiature.  His joy may be imagined. Hc told  the story to Philippa. She in turn  confessed her love.  The marriage next day was no formal affair of state, but a union of two  fondly loving hearts.  And all his life long the people wondered how the King who had been so  cold a suitor had been transformed  into such a loving and devoted husband.���������Lydla Kingsmill Commander,  in New  York  Evening Journal.

Ever since the introduction of armor there has been a steady  fight between it and tlie gun, first one  and then tho other being ahead.    At  first it was possible to armor the whole  side above water as  well as  to give  special protection to the guns and nm-  ���������railnei-y, but with the progress or ordnance  tho thickness of armor required to give adequate protection has become so great that it is impossible to  ���������armor   the    vessel     throughout  ' her  length.    This has led to the design of  central citadel ships where tbe armor  is concentrated  at  the middle of tho  length, protecting guns, magazines aiul  machinery,   leaving   the   ends   almost  entirely unprotected.

Whether simple or elaborate preparations are made dependent, of course u.;-  on the size of the establishmeni ami  tho number of servunts, hut, whatever  else lt may or may not be, tlie hou.:?  party should be distinctly informal.

At many out-of-town houses Sunday morning breakfast parties ai?  much affected, thc house purty bein:-  supplemented by outsiders, who arrive on wheels, afoot, or horseback, as  inclination dictates. These mectin.53  are, of course, delightfully informal,  and the breakfast served is really what  the French call "a* dejeuner a la fojr-  chette���������that Is to say, a judicious compromise between the morning meal and  the midday luncheon.

Many hostesses, who rejoice in a  large country house, where the hall is  the spocial architectural feature, havo  breakfast served at small tables set in  the hall, the hall itself lavishly decorated a la rose tree; that is to say, with  trailing vines on walls, and mantel,  and doors, and the effect is cliarniin-**.  What to wear at such a gathering is,  of course, the question that arises lirst  in the feminine mind when an invilu-  tion is received for a Saturday-to-Monday party. The answer 10 that problem  is easy: In compliment to your hostess, put your prettiest and dressiest  gown in a dress suit case, add to its  contents a duck skirt, a crisp shirt,  waist, ana the small toilette accessories,  and even the most fastidious woman is  suitably -equipped for such a slay. A  neat tailor gown is worn on tho train,  or if one travels awheel, then the di*csn  suit case is sent ahead and the bicycle  costume is made as chic and trim ai'  possible.  What Girls nro Doin*;.  Another- thing the girls aro doins is  making small hair pillows to send 10  send to the men. These were sngges:-  ed to them by an old regular army officer who has seen much service, and  who told them tliat a man could make  himself quite comfortable anywhere in  the open with his blanket if lie only  had a hair pillow lo lay his head or..  These pillows are not stuffed very full,  so that they may bo easily rolled up  In the blankets. They are about twenty-seven inches square and are covered  flrst with ticking, and then with a slip  cover of denim or cretoae, which can bs  taken off and washed. Some of the  girls are embroidering dark blue onea  in red initials and monograms, brown  ones in yellow or blue, and so on, in  different combination of color.  There is a certain set of well known  society girls in town who art buying  luxuries and packing cases of ..rem for  the men they kuow in the different  campa. Each girl has pledged herself  to give so mu-ih money every week, and  a committee on packing and shipping  tho cases has been formed, which will  attend to the sending of them off every  two weeks until tho war is over.

The average woman of fashion is having about a third  as many new gowns as usual, and she  is buying far less in the way of fripperies and novelties. A much smaller  quantity of goods is being ordered daily,  from the butcher, the baker and tho  grocer, and there are somo women who  are actually keeping a close watch on  the sugar and butter in their pantries,  to see that neither of these articles is  wasted.

You know, or rather you  don't know, what these people aTe when  they once get a footing; so do be very  careful."  Bhe rustled out of the room, leaving  Lndy Mary to her own society and her  Own meditations.  'Left alone, the girl took a letter out  of 'her pocket, and, dismissing Mr. Montague from her mind, read and re-read  it slowly.  ���������It was a long semi-illegible scrawl, beginning "Sty dearest Mary," and ending  "your loving brother;" and it was from  her only brother, who was in the    Lancers, and.who wrote the letter from  the little Indian station where he had  been for the last nine months or so. It  was a long letter of explanation rather  than excuse, and telling her he had been  gamblin*g hopelessly J and was ..hopelessly  in debt, and that unless she could cable i  ihim out ������550 immediately he. would have  to resign his commission; and he advised  her to go to the governor, as he called  the old duke, his father, "and, Mary  dear," he .wrote., "see' if you can't screw  the money out of the old boy. Tell him  I will give up cards if ire will only pay  up. Be sure and cable me by Friday, and  get it somehow foT God's sake, old girl,  or I won't answer for the consequences,  es I can't face leaving the regiment."  Lady Mary shuddered as she read this  appealing scrawl. What did .he mean by  saying he* could not answer for the consequences! - There could - be* only- one  meaning���������he would shoot himself. Her  brother, her only brother, whom she  adored, and who had taken the place in  her heart that she would have s-haro.d  with father and; mother, had* the latter  been alive and the -former.' not been T an  object of. terror rather .than love. What  waa she to do? She rose, and walking  over to the mantelpiece took up her  brother's photo, nnd looked at it with  loving pity and a mind full of doubt and  hopelessness. It was a handsome face,  nearly as handsome as.that of .the girl  .who was looking down at it: the same  blue eyes and straight nose and well-  ahaped head, but the chin and mouth  were weak, where, hers were strong, and  -the eyes, although the same color, were  bolder and yet less frank. Lady Mary  replaced the photo and sat down again  to reconsider the' situation.1 There was  jno help for it, she must appeal to the  duke. She had only her dress allowance,  ���������which, although large, was already overdrawn,' almost thc whole of the next  quarter being forestalled. ' She must go  ���������bo* her father: and persuade him to" send  the money. It would not be the first  -time she had pleaded for her brother���������  yea, she would go at once; he would  ������������������rarely not refuse, but she would take  the letter so that.he could see how realty aorry Leicester was. Suddenly she remembered the allusions to the duke; no,  on second thoughts she would not take'  -the letter, she would only go herself���������-she  oould tell it far better than it had been  written, for she could soften her father's  heart with earnest additions and the  promises of amendment that her brotber  -Lad-made,  tion, "and you can't let mm De rurneC  Do help him just this onne, papa, do,  please; please do, ior my sake."

"Oh, papa, do let me have the money;  I know he will never play card3 again;  he has promised me."  "My dear Mary," said the duke blandly, leaning hack "in Iris chair and looking  critically nt iris daughter's flushed face  and eager, shining eyes, "you are full of  perverted emotions; now what an  amount of useless affection you have  wasted on that young scapegrace sinci  the time when you were his slave irr tin.  nursery I Directed in another and a  worthier channel, such emotion would  bo really invaluable, quite invaluable  But it should In; controlled, Mary; sc  openly expressed it is a little bourgeois!'*  Lady Mary's eyes filled with tears  "Papa, do help him���������do, papa, dear."

"Ai*  most the stuff heroines are made of," lu  murmured, smiling, a smile that struck a  chill to Mary's 'heart, and was tlie death*  knell of any lingering hope she had oi  Boftening him. "Heroines," he continued,  looking musingly into thc fire, and away  from his daughter's supplicating face���������  "heroines are invariably bourgeoisc.  even if they do not actually spring frorrr  tire lower classes."  Lady Mary, realizing his implacability,  drew herself up sharply and looked a I  ���������him with spirit. "So you refuse, papa?"  Her voice held a note of desperation.  "Your request," said tlie duke, "I gather, is, that you wish me to send youi  brother- -"  "And your son."  Tlie duke bowed. "And my son, you  will pardon me if I say, and alas! my  son! a large sum of money, to put it  crudely���������and money matters are always  crude, Mary���������is not that what you  wish?"

"On the .contrary, mydear, you arc  too modern; you have passed the stage*  of swearing and cigarette smoking, aiul  you now only imitate your inferiors in  being so emotional."

How glad she was she had  been able to help him, and how unexpected had been the source from' which  that help had come! She remembered  how she had first told Mr. Montague of  her financial troubles, and how eagerly  he had explained them away; and wa-"  glad* her aunt had refused to stay in or.  the Thursday he had called1 on her. She  hardly knew what -had first made her  rrrentibn her brother, but somehow it  was done, und knowing Mr. Montague  was a financier, she had asked him if  thero was any way he could raise, the  money for her. She had no idea of being under any obligation to-him personally; to her Ire was merely a business  man, a person who might give her some  practical and useful advice.* Lady Mary,  was in many ways ignorant of the world,  even her world, and she had quite gravely asked Mr. Montague if lie could bor-  row_theJ.money-from.Jews. She knew  bad been for the last month, were broken in upon by the butler, who rather  ���������suddenly announced Mr. Montague, and  then softly withdrew.  Ernest Montague came quickly tor-yards Lady Mary.  "How do you do, Lady Mary ? You  ���������got my note?"  She took refuge in the meaningless  smile of conventionality. She had completely forgotten tliat he had written to  tell her that he was coming.  "Have some tea ? No! Well, sit nearer the fire; it is colder than ever to-day,  is it not?   And such a wind."  Mr.* Montague, ignoring the chair she-  bad indicated, stood with his bock to  the fire, looking somewhat timidly down  at hi3 hostess.  "Well," said Lady Mary, pleasantly,  "and what did you want to see me about*  Mr. Montague? By the way, I have not  half thanked you for helping me out oi  my troubles," she added graciously, and  with the air of one who '-has granted  rather than accepted a favor.   *  Mr.  Montague coughed nervously.  "Lady Mary, it is-not on that subject  at all that I have come to see you."  Lady Mary looked up in some surprise at the deeply earnest tone.  "The fact is, Lady Mary, I���������I, er, havo  come to ask you to marry me." Ho  seemed, to gain sudden courage, either  from her silence, or from the sound of  bi3 own voice, and continued in a steadier, tone: "I have loved you from the  first moment I saw you, Lady Mary, and  when your horse bolted and I held you  for a moment in my arms, I felt that I  had: had   my   first   and   only   taste   of  -Pardon me," said Lady Mary very  coldly, and looking fit Mr. Montague  with 'growing' scorn, .-"but my father  signed it the night before he left."  "What! you deny it? You deny that  the whole thing is a'-forgery, and that  you not only wrote it lint signed it yourself? You actually deny it, l.iuly Mary!"  ���������repeated Mr. Men ta true in genuine  amazement; and he stared.nt her ngha**'.  nnd advanced a shade closer to her side  as he spoke.  "IIow dare you even suggr*rt th.it I  wrote it or signed it!" cried' Lady Mary  angrily. "Yoii!"���������this with infinite insolence���������"You!" she repeated, "lo dare  io rrrake such an accusation against ina!"  The. man, half-doubting, and yet half-  corn breed, looked searchingly into the  blue eyes that returned his gaze so fearlessly.  ''Well, you or some clever tool of  yours wrote it," he" said sullenly. "At  any rale, it is nol the duke's signature;  it is only a poor imitation, and anyone  would have known he would not liave  heen likely to let a stranger transact  his business. Come, Lady Mary," he  added, persuasively, "don't let us be enemies."Listen: if you'll only marry rne,  I'll never even mention tire money to  you again���������never, upon my honor I  won't; but. if you refuse me," his face  grew paler and his voice hoarser, "by  God, I'll go to the duke and tell:him the  whole story. Marry me, Mary, and I'll  not only see you through, but give you  all the money you want."  At the sound of her Christian name,  used so familiarly and with such underlying passion, Lady Mary made a gesture  heaven, and that I  would   move earth   0"f SU(jden great arigcr, and then, control  and even heaven itself..to win you." ling --en-elf, laid her hand on  tire bell-  Lady Mary pushed back her chair and   rope a*,-,d pulled it sharply twice in suc-  Jews lent money,-but where they lived  or how they came to lend it she did not  know. She did. not even know if her  father's. estates were entailed or not;  but couldn't her brother raise a mortgage, or raise something, she suggested  vaguely; "she was'sure.he would pay it  back, or she could do so." It did not" occur to her to offer any security. She had  nothing to offer unless it were her diamonds, nnd these her aunt would hnve  quickly missed. Mr. Montague had explained to her how easy it would be to  raise the money. He was too wise to  offer to lend it to her, but he told her he  would get it for her if she would give  him a paper signed by her father authorizing his solicitors, Messrs. Black &Bul-  ncy, to raise n mortgage on one of his  smaller estates. This suggestion, he felt,,  was a triumph of diplomacy. The duke,  he knew, would never give it, and would  even laugh at so foolish a proposal, nor  would Lady Mary dare to ask him. Ho  would then be able to offer her tho  money himself?1 and he would tell her  how little it meant to him, and how  small a trifle it was if in return she  would give him a fragment of her friendship. "'However; to his extreme astonishment,' and even consternation; Lady  Mary hud! driven down to his office only  the day following, bringing with her a  few lines written by the Duke's private  secretary, and signed by the duke himself.  Lady Mary sat looking idly into the  fire, and then slowly lifted and re-read  the letter that lay orr her knee. How.  thankful she was that she had been  nble to help dear Leicester! How sir*  loved hirrr! She was ghid she had saved  him from ruin, and perhaps from something terrible, more terrible than she  dare contemplate. It had been so easy,  the whole transaction, and she reckoned  that in two years at the most she could  nave and refund the money herself, and  If neccssnry defy the duke.  Her   nieditatieni,   happier   than   they  glanced at TMr* Montague with an air of  the most intense.astonishment, not unmixed with amusement; and contempt.  She could hardly have been more astonished if her hairdresser or the':groom  himself had made her a proposal oi marriage. Her aunt had been right; then,  and she had made a mistake in allowing  this business man to come to'tire'*house.  " She rose slowly and with much grace.  "JMr. Montague," she said gently, and  with what she felt was admirable forbearance, "you have done me a kindness,  and lam not ungrateful���������-I am alluding  to your help about my money affairs���������  but please do not mention anything so���������  so foolish to me again as this absurd  proposal."  With her delicate eyebrows still raised  as -though   in   utter   astonishment  and  Eerplexity at his presumption, she stood  alf turning towards the door, her fine  profile contemptuously averted from hei  rejected suitor.  The hot blood mounted to Mr. .Mon-���������  = tague's~dark*--and^om^^  and be bit his under lip in his fierce de-  .sire to control his emotion. "Lady  Mary," he stammered, "I���������I love you���������1  adore you. I am rich, richer even' than  .your father," and I will do ray best to  : make you happy���������and if you will only  imarry me I will see your brother never  [wants for money."  "The suggestion is worthy 'of you,'*  [said Lady Mary, with so fine an inso  ;lcnce that at the moment she looked  strikingly like the duke, "but I would  :not marrv vou���������even to help my brother." She laughed lightly. "It's really toe  iridiculous," she said; "let us forget it  'And now I will not detain you any longer."  She moved a little nearer the bell  Tbut his voice stopped her.  "Wait a minute." The harsh, rough  ���������tone made her again raise her eyebrows,  and she moved impatiently���������but waited  "Lady Mary," said Mr. Montague, in a  low, hoarse voice, "I have asked you to  be my wife, and you have refused, and  .���������refused me with contempt."  ���������She moved her head in slight acquiescence. "If you will excuse mc saying so,"  .she said, and she looked strangely like  her father again, "I am only amazed,  quite amazed that you should have asked  ���������me."  "It ia unnecessary for us to bandy  ���������words," said Mr. Montague harshly. "1  bave only one thing more to nay: I  know the paper you brought me was  not signed by your father nor written  by bis private secretary. It was written  by yourself, and it would not have deceived even a child; for in the first place  your father, if he had wished you to  have the money, would have given it to  yon himself, and not have raised a, mortgage, or done ft through me at all.

"Pray go and  see my father; ypu will find him nt home  any time between the hours of two and  three, or after dinner to-night at nbout  ���������nine o'clock."  It was nearly an hour later when  Lady Mary opened the door of. the cluke'n  library. He was sitting by the fir*** with  a small table by his side, on .which  stood a cup of coffee arid oT basin of su-  -CXtt.  "Good afternoon, Mary. . I am .just  enjoying my coffee after my siesta. It  should be tea,'I know, but I have, as  you may have noticed, a great weakness  for coffee. I like it at tea-time with  milk, and black, of course, after dinner."  He laid down his cup'with deliberation  nnd looked thoughtfully at it, apparently deeply absorbed by its contents, but  in ' reality . noting every detail of his  daughter's disturbed appearance.

"I copied'ran old document I found here, only altering tho  name of one of j-our farms, and I signed  it with your name."  "And were you really sufficiently aim-  pie to suppose any business man would  advance you money on an obvious  fraud ?**  "He did," said Lady Mary eagerly.  "He gave me tbe money at once, and said  it waa quite a good enough guarantee-  yes, that was tbo word he used���������guarantee.

Lady Mary  came down  to breakfas* j  , restless  and   weary,  after  a  night   o j  | acute suspense.  Had Mr. Montague been to see her  father? and had the duke stood by her  or had ho declined to see Mr. Montague  and left her to face great discomfort i  not actually scandal and disgrace? What  had he done?   She wished she knew.  ,    She answered Lady Rivington's ques  ��������� tions abstractedly, playing idly with her  'breakfast, which she made only a vait  ; pretense of eating.  i Presently there was a sharp knock a I  |the front door, and a moment later thi  'butler entered the room softly and banded  iher a telegram.   Lady Mary's face grew  ��������� a shade paler as, with a murmured apolo  igy, she tore it open and then drew in  !ber breath with a sharp sign of relief.

"Shall I send him  away, your Grace?"  "Ko, send him here, Martin, and on no  account let mo be disturbed again this  evening."'  The duke bowed faintly as Mr. Montague was ushered into his room.  Mr. Montague was not sure how to  nddress him, dukes not ranking among  his intimate friends. He was not-sure  whether to say "Duke," whicli'. lie-felt  would be familiar and impertinent, and  yet "Your Grace" he feared might perhaps sound obsequious, ft would perhaps not. bo necessary to say anything;  he decided to leave it to chance.

"ReallyI I wns quite unaware that  Lady Mary had got into the hands of  any money-lender."

At the conclusion of tlie  programme .1. Then. AVil.soti, on behalf of the visitors, made a short  address congratulating I -he K. of P. on  the success of the entertainment  which was wittily responded to by the  (���������hiiii-irrnri.  The proceedings closed with "Anld  Lang Svne" as  a send oil' to Bro. I3ns-  greeted this talented combination and  nearly every item was encored. Mr.  S. Homer 13aton, the noted impersonator, opened lire programme with a  comic sketch by C. li. Loornis iind  nlso rendered ".linirr' Farms" mid "A  Day of Trouble" in an inimitable  manner. The lirsl. Jl down east story,  elicited air clil husiaslic encore which  was given, the si led ion being Hiley's  '".lune.* Tlui .Josialr Allen's wife selection, "A Day of Trouble" sent the  audience into Ills of laughter and the  encore number, "Widowers" was even  better.  As the Prima Donna Mr. 13a I on was  also splendid, intimation, hearing uml  action all evidencing careful st udy of  the antics of an egotistic leading lady.  W. Francis Firth has a splendid  baritone voice and every nuiuhur  given hy him caused a recall. Stuart's  "Bandolero" was the fii'st. the encore  being the old song "01V to Philadelphia." Then there was Stephen  Adains' "Island of Dreams" with  "Bonny Barrks of Loch Lomond" as  Hie recall. The. rendering of his own  song "White Star of Heaven" wa.s  somewhat handicapped by Mr. Firth  acting as his own accompanist .'is was  also the encore number "The Lover's  Heart." The latter- is ri splendid composition hut, there is very little originality displayed in the former. It is a  good stirring song of a semi-devotional  nature but has such strong similarity  to Adams' "Holy City" and "The Star  of .Bethlehem" that it can irr no sense  be termed an original composition.  Miss Flora Higgins hns the best  contralto voice ever heard in the city,  her lower1 notes iir particular being  perfectly clear'. Her songs, "A Dream"  and "Shade, of the Palm," from Floro-  dora, were-both encored and thu lirst,  extra, a lullaby by Cowen wus probably the best tiring she sang.  The final' number,n duett irr costume  by Mr. Eaton as the prima donna and  Mr. Firth as Charles A', was a most  acceptable conclusion to I he program.  Mr-. Eaton's falsetto was n capital  imitation of u soprano and blended  perfectly with -Mr. Firth's fine baritone. Revelstoke will welcome this  talenled concert party if il, comes this  way again.  JiKTiioirtsr social.  The usual Thanksgiving Day social  was held in the Molhodist cliureh a  good number of members and friends  altending. Refreshments were served  by the ludiesand a musical program unfurnished by members of the choir  arrd others.
