But 1, having just returned  ,1'rom my native country, have been  able to report to the government at  Pieterinaritzburg that there is not the  slightest symptom of disloyalty, t>nt  the idea of lifting a linger against tha  whitu subjects of the great and good  queen.  "There is'among the chiefs and  indiums of my people an almost universal hope that the imperial nrmswill be  victorious,   and   thut  a   government  which .by its inhumanity and relentless  injustice, and apparent inability to see  that the native has any right, a white  man should   respect, has  forfeited   its  place among the civilized governments  of the earth,' and should, therefore, be  deprived-of   powers  so   scandalously  abused���������formerly   by slavery  and   in  later years hy  disallowing  the  native  to buy  land,  -vml   utterly   neglecting  his  intellectual   and   spiritual" needs.  There.are wrongs to.be. redressed, but  we Zulus believe that England will "be  more willing to redress them than any  other power.    There is still much.to be  done, in  the   way   of   educating   and  civilizing the mass of the Zulu  nation.  We chiefs of that nation have observed  that   whereever   England! has   gone  there.the missionary and teacher follow, and that there   exists sympathy  between the authority of her  majesty  and the forces  that  labor civilization  and Christianity.   .We Zulus have not  not y*>t forgotten what we owe to  the  late Bishop   Colenso's   lifelong  advocacy,   or   to   Ladv   Florence    Dixie's  kindly interest.    These are things that  are more I han feat of England's might,  that keep our people quiet outside any  loyal  inside.     This   is not   a   passive  loyally   with   us.     Speaking   for   almost all  fellow: countrymen in Zulu-  land, I believe, if  a  great emergency  arises in  the  course  of   this   history-  making war. in" which England   might  find it necessary to  put  their  loyalty  to the test, they  would   respond ,with  readiness  and "enthusiasm,   equal   to  th'it when   they fought   under  King  Cetewayo against  Lord  Chelmsford's  may.    Again assuring  you  thai the.  Zulu people are  turning  deaf ears, to  Boer promises as  well* as   threats;   I  remain- w i I h-th e���������most���������earnest���������hopeful-the  ultimate  triumph  of  General  Duller, who fought my  king  for  half  a year���������vour humble and most, obedient servant, M'PLAANK.  :          "Son of Magueude, brother of  Cetewavo."

"1 was ca-ihier of a bank in Pennsylvania a muni many years ago," said tho man  who was traveling on a deadhead puss,  ���������'ami al'lor a couple oC years 1 made up  niy mind that, things were too slow for  me. In other words, 1 decided to gobble  up what money I could and skip for Europe and i;o into business on my own  .hook. 1 bided my liiiie, and one night,  when I know 1 could lay my hands mi  about $011,000. 1 prepared Iu bid''the town  ��������� Boiiilh}'. 1 had a key to the bank and on-  other lo IHo vault, and an We had no  watchman.inside ���������! bad no trouble in gut-  tin;.; in. It was nbont 'midnight when I  made my raid, and 1 hadn't opened tho  vault .vol, when Ihe bunk door -was un-  liielieil, and, lite president entered. He  had an'empty oarpulbng Uiulor his. arm  and pit v.-i'iik.in the" knees when he saw  me. We hadn't passed a qiicstiou whoa  iiiiiither key clicked, and the manager cn-  le'red. lie also had an empty onriieHni-,:,  and he also got weak in tbo knees. The  three of us sat down, each with an empty  luu; at his feet, ami'looked at each otlicv  for ,1 Ions lime. It was the- president  who spoke first, and lie said:  ���������*i was worried about 'the funds in the  vault."  "Ho wasT," said the.manager.  "So iviisiO," 1 milled.  "And hadn't we better sec if they arc  safe?"  "I think we hnd."  "So do J." ���������������������������  "Then the president unlocked the vault,  and the three of us'stepped inside and  assured ourselves that the funds were all.  right. As wo came out; and the doors  were locked behind'us.lie said:  "I found this old carpetbag on the  'street tis 1.came along."  "And 1 found this," said tho manager.  : "And I. l'oinul this,". I ailded.  '���������There -.was aii interval of painful silence, and we all walked out together;  The outside watchman eaniu up as we  did so, and the president'observed:  "Special meeting, yon soe,.lames. You'd  hellcv go inside for 'he rest-ol! the night."  "Yes, inside," said tlie manager.  "Yes, inside, James,". I'added.  "James was locked in the bank," continued the ox-cashier, "and we bade each  other good iiight and.separated. It- was  an even up filing so far as it wont, and it  ought to have been so to the end, hut the  honest man is always the one to suffer.  Next day 1 got the' bounce. The president said that lie and the ..manager had  been thinking things over and had come  to tho conclusion that 1 had been tempted to rob the bank: anil would have got  away Willi every dollar if they hadn't  happened lo show up. , I.was honest in  .acknowledging it and had to go, nndT.bc-  lieyo they had their salaries raised for  : their neat., and solicitude." ��������� Chicago  News.': ,-��������� ���������'':''".:'.'-:" ���������:".���������.-:' -������������������";���������'.��������� ���������-'���������.'-'  y; \      Tlie Alert JAitlc Cliipnmitk.    ,'.'���������'  .���������.'���������: An ^acquaintance surprised me the other day by tlio: question, "What is a ch'ip-  luu'n'k���������how does he:differ irom a squii':  "t-clV"    1  thotight; everybody dmow  this'  gay  sprite  ol; the",": roadsides'. i:.He -is ,,a  true: squirrel,:.:about the;,size ot tlie eqiu-;  111011  "red  oiicv-;aiui: of "tlie  sanio.Jrcddisli:  tone,. whicli,:ii!;e the bi'ot!ier::ol' tho trees,  is much brighter in''-winterVthan in siim- .-  mer, when the long,,warm, liandsomo fui*,  Suitable i'or.coUl weather and- the niiptial.  linic, is replaced l.-y ii:v.'urin weather suit,  ������C a cooler, shorter: and paler sort,   llis  distinguisHin*;    marks . are':tv>*o    white;  stripes along tlm'side of :,Hie:;back; froih?  the fore shotilder'to': the: rootof the tail,  each bordered: by , a .black line, ��������� making  :Uim.:tlie   prettiest ot   our, lesser   quail-  rupeds and giving lo-hiui, as, with erect  ears   and   n-ailingy bushy   tairiio   scuds:  iiloug the tonce ovKentiipers iii'aiidr'6ut ot  n , brush  pilo���������for.-lie  is  a  true' 'ground  squirrel, rarely going.'eVeii upon the trunk  :o������.a tree���������an air of diindypride and 'ulei-t-  ness that .is'most engaging.

Tho raid Wiia conducted hy Colonel  Pitcher and was very dlillcult owlns  to the fact that tho movements of the  troops aro immediately communicated  to tlio Boeis by the natives.

Another pnvaLs,  whoso horse had bolted plucUily re-  turncd to render assistance, lie w.i������  wounded In the leg and his horse was  killed.  In tho meanwhile Lieutenant Re-  can who had fought magnificently reported that the veldt to the right of  tho enemy was clear, whereupon  Major Deos ordered the  guns lo trot. .They arrived within  1000 yards of tho laager, uuliinoerod  and planted live shells in as many  minutes within the laager. Immediately the enemy could bo spen  streaming over the kopje. They were  completely surprised but very quickly  opened a well directed fire. The order  was given to the Toronto company  to double quick into action. The  order was received with great satisfaction. The' company rushed forward until within 1000 yards of the  enemy's position when it opened a  hot lire upon the kopje and comrdsfe-  ly subdued the Boer fire. The British  artillery shelled, tire position vi*"h  wonderful accuracy, while Lieutenant  Ryan   with     the   mounted     infantry,  worked around ' anil , auswei'dd  the fire of the Boers who had been  hidden in the bushes. Mnanwhile  Colonel Pitcher, with the Quoensland-  crs. taking advantage of every cove.*,  made a. direct attack. The Australians  moving slowly but surely and only  shouted when they, saw the enemy  retire under their steady fire. Tho  Queenslanders behaved with great  coolness, laughing and chaffing evoi  at the moment, of greatest peril. During the advanco the Boer five suddenly ceased. Thirty-five. Boers hoisted  the white flag and surrendered. A  portion of tho Toronto's moved across  the front, of the guns and entered the'  laager. The Boers had fled. Fourteen  tents, three wagons, a great stove of  rifles, ammunition, forage, saddles,  camp equipment and numerous incriminating papers were found and cap  tured. The Boers lost six killed and  12 wounded. The Toronto's stood a  galling fire with admirable patience,  never wasting n -shot.

Today is the feast or the Epiphany,
a festival which as late at all events as
the reiiMi of Charles 1 was celebrated
with as great rejoicings almost as
Christmas itself, especially at the
royal court, the visit of the Magi,
which the day cniiiiiieiiiorates, being
peculiarly associated with royalty on
account of the tradition that they
were three kings. The sole survival of
the celebration hy nut* uionarehs is the
annual presentation by ihe Queen of
an ingot of gold at the altar of St.
George's .chapel at Windsor on this
day. Perhaps it was the association
of her annual Epiphany ottering which
put into Her Majesty's mind the excellent idea of authorizing by royal
letters patent to the Archbishops of
Canterbury and York the devotion of
the offerings in the church in England
next Sunday to the aid of the widows
and orphans of soldiers killed in the
war. It is an idea which might, be
well adopted throughout the Empire.
I hereby wish to piihtloly express my upprc-
ciatlon of the kindness shewn by the mem tiers
ot Kovehtoko Cilv lliinil in the presentation
made m me Thursday eveiiliii* of such a beautiful slttle trombone;' and wish to assure them
that tl will bo liluh.lv prized as a recollection I
of Hiu kooiI feeling sliown In our practices.

Election Notice.
llavhiK been requested by a larce number of
tlie ratepayers to stand lor re-eleellon as alderman for Ward Two, 1 solicit u renewal of your
confidence anil am prepared to await the
decision of the eleetors on my past record. I
.shall take unv early opportunity to explain my
platform to you. T. j. ORAIIAM.
Telephone 36.
P.O. Box 86.
The state ownership nf railways is a
plank in the platform of the entire
Conservative party in Western Canada
from thn great lakes to the Pacific
ocean. In fact it is not properly
speaking a plank in any political platform at all. It is recognized by both
parties as the inns', necessary step to
be taken in the direction of that
general amelioration of- our present
social conditions, on which and not on
any old. wornout. political issues, the
heart of the west is really set. This
I'act is one with which political aspir-
miiIs must, reckon. So loop* as it is
blinked and thrust in the background,
so long will Dominion politics in the
eyes of the west remain a mere .scuffle
for place and power. We shall of
course always be ready to put up a
fight to put the men, in whom we
trust, into the government of the
country, but beyond that, the issues of
the contest represent very little more,
out here than mere party cries. But
the man who l has Ihe foresight and
pluck to bring these real, live, practical issues of the day, issues which
belong to Ihe social life ml her than
the mere political mii'hinery of the
country, to the front will be the man
for the West and the coming ruler of
the destinies of Canada.

A detachment of the Xith New
Zealanders had n nuiTow escape, while
advancing on Colesberg. They were
directed to occupy a kopje, but met
���with a hot reception from a concealed
-force of Boers.j Fortunately they
were refcued by a body of British
troops who saw their danger.
Tt was  this   very  railway question,
quite as much as Ihe Manitoba school
matter, which lessened the hold of tho
Conservative party  011   western   Canada.    It is  the  experience  gained   in
the   last   four   years  that   the    loud
promises of the  Lanrier  cabinet   with
regard   to   this snnie  question   meant
practically nothing which  has  caused
the  turnover   of   popular    sentiment,
against them.     No  cabinet  will  ever
gain a  second  term  of  power  if  the
west can help it, which is suspected of
subservience to railway  corporations.
And until Canada gets a cabinet which
shews   itself   determined   to   grapple
with this question in   Ihe only way in
which  it  can   be grappled  with, that
is   by     transferring    the     ownership
of the  railways  from   private  corporations   to   the   nation,   the     popular
feeling will always be for a  change as
soon as ever Che  grtvefiTTiient-for-1lie"
time being has distinctly  shewn   itself
disinclined lo concede to the wishes of
the people in this respect.    So long as
such a public   utility  as   our   railway
system, which  enters so  vitally  into
the very  existence  of the   people,   is
managed, as under private  ownership
it necessarily must be managed, in the
interest, of the uhiirehnldi'i's and not of
the people, so long will this  condition
nf affairs prove 11  source  of continual
discontent with he government of   the
country.      And   no   parly   can   hope
again fur a prolonged   lease  nf   power
until   this  grievance   U  removed  and
the  evil   cured   in    the   only   way   in
which it ran be, permanently and satisfactorily.
There can remain   very  little  doubt
now as  to   the   stand   which   Joseph
Martin intends to take  in   the  session
sit Victoria which began last Thursday.
In   his speech   to  his  constituents  at
Vancouver  last Tuesday  Mr.  Martin
declared it to be his ���'intention to take
every means in his power to hurl from
power   Mr.     Cartev-Cotton   and     ihe
other gentlemen who sit behind   him."
lit;   stated    I hat   in    his    opinion   the
province wants another election,   that
he has been of that opinion ever since
the last election and that he intends to
do all   in   his   power   to   bring- about
another   election   by   defeating     the
present   govern merit.       There   is   no
room for doubt. Ilmr,  Mr.  Martin   will
be as good -is his word, that  the   present government is as good as defeated
already and that-ill  it  will   leave   behind it is a record for sheer incapacity
unequalled      in     the   history   of    the
province.     We shall lie in the thick of
another provincial election   before   we
know where we are arid it is high time
that     this   constituency   pitched     its
choice upon a suitable representative.
Before the next parliament has run its
course the development of I h>; Lardeau
will make this  one  of  the   most   important districts  and  Revelstoke  one
of tho most important cities in  this
province.   We   must have a rattling
good man to represent us.    It is to our
business interest to see that we get
one. ���'<
