"We were not surprised at Mr. John  Oliver, the representative for Delta in  the Provincial Legislature, making an  address before the Liberal Association  in this city it few days ago. It was  about time for Mr. Oliver's re-appearance before the public.. By-elections  are Mr. Oliver's particular weakness.  ,He can no more keep avvay from the  scene of a by-election than Dickens'  character could from the savory delights of a tripe and onion supper.  But by-elections cannot be had every  month and Mr. Oliver can only keep  bis hand in by speaking in this place  or that on the delinquencies and  shortcomings of the Provincial Government.  We must confess, however, to being  somewhat disappointed at Mr. Oliver's  speech on Thursday last. There vvas  the same vehemence; the same mysterious hints at the shocking manner  in which the affairs of the Province  are being managed by an administration which had not the good fortune  to include the member for Delta  among its members. But when all  that is conceded, we are bound to admit there is a distinctly musty flavor  about Mr. Oliver's address. Parts of  it were actually fly-blown and showed  the effect of the ravages of two years'  wear. We were again told that the  ���������Government - tookr^ofllee^without^-a"  majority in the House. Yet it has  managed to hold its place for more  than two years and has stronger support in the Legislature today thau it  had in 1ED3. Equally unfortunate and  unconvincing are Mr. Oliver's repiti-  tions of the "terrible condition"' of tbe  Province. It is not the first time that  Mr. Oliver has told us that "the farmers are being crushed by the iniquitous  system of taxation." More than a  year has passed since we first heard  that, yet today the farming community is as a whole more prosperous than  at any previous period in. twenty  years and some of them, like Mr.  Oliver himself, are waxing rich, adding farm to farm, pulling down their  barns to build greater ones, and  chuckling when thej- compare their  scale of taxation with that of their  neighbors in the State of Washington.  But Mr. Oliver still continues to  lament their lot although all the facts  are against his assertions.  Then Mr. Oliver denounces the Government's policy in regard to the lumber industry. He did so when it vvas  introduced last session and foretold  that it would check the progress of  the industry, work a great hardship  on those engaged in it and reduce the  revenue derived from it. The fact  that none of these things has come to  pass; that there has been extraordinary  development  in   the    industry,  whilo the revenue has largely increased, is ignored by Mr. Oliver. _ But the  electors are hot ignorant of these facts  and can scarcely fail to put a propei  value on Mr. Oliver's utterances, which  whether prophetic or historic are alike  discredited by events.  It would be interesting to know  whnt are Mr. Oliver's ideas of the  attitude which a provincial government should assume to proposals to  subsidize railways. When it is proposed to do anything of the kind Mr.  Oliver denounces such a policy as robbery by corpoiations. If a government sets'"its face against subsidies,  Mr. Oliver almost brings tears into the  eyes of those who listen to his description of produce rolling on the ground  because an incapable government has  not been able to devise a satisfactory  railway policy. It is possiblo that he  has no ideas on the subject, but is  merely vvaitiug for something to turn  up, meanwhile condemning thc Government for what it does or fails to do.  Mr. Oliver is lhe most voluble and  the most agiriessive of the members of  the Opposition. He hits, however,  failed evon in the opinion of many  men of bis own p.uty, to make out  any case of condemnation of the Government by the electorate. Still less  has he done anything to cause Lhe  voters-to desiie to place Mr. Oliver in  office. lt may be verj-sad: it maj-  betoken the densest kind of failure to  recognize Mr. Oliver's ability: still  more his consuming zeal to bo entrusted with power. But the fact cannot  be denied that the Opposition has  entirelj' failed to make out any case  against- the Government, or to show  anj7 reason why it should be put in  the hitter's place. That such is the  case is due in no small degtee to Mi.  OH ver.���������News-Ad vei User.  McBride Wants Terms.  Hon.

PRACTICE IN CHINA,  All PhyslcHni   Pave   the   Native   Doctors  Hk7. Troubles or Their tl wu.  Dr. Johnson, a well-known medical  missionary, who was ln New Orleans  just before the attack on Tien Tsln,  : :told eome curious- and interesting  things ahout practice among the Chinese. "They ore very trying patients,"  'be said, "anil make a strong demand on  end doctor's Christian forbearance. To  begin with, no Chinaman can be tiuat-  od to tell the truth about the history of  his case; he simply will not follow directions, and if possible, he will upset  the treatment by eating all sorts of outlandish things on the sly���������such delicacies as green, peanuts, pickled pl<$'_  stomach, decayed flsh roes, raw turnips  and Chinese pears, which are as haras a rock and about as nutritious a>  sawdust.  "Our   mission   hospitals   mado   tha  mistake at the outset of treating everybody gratuitously, and the consequ*nco  iwas that they weie overrun with people who were amply able to pay, and  (Who had no sympathy whatever with  the cause.    There was absolutely no  sense  in giving away  our time and  medicine to such a class, and at present the mission hospitals have a fixed  Schedule of charges,  rangiug from 5  "cash," or about a quarter of a cent,  for a quinine powder, to 2,000 ������ish for  a minor surgical case.   The bona fido  paupers, of course,  are treated  free.  One of the large hospitals at Chefoo  tried the experiment of posting a notice that patients "would be expected to  deposit whatever the'y were^able to glva  lu a box fastened to the front gate, and  a charitable German visitor started the  thing off by putting in ������5.   During tho  first month over 900 cases were treated,  Indoors ln clinic, and the box was then  opened.   It was as empty as a drum.  Even the ������5 had  disappeared.    After  .that tho fee system was  introduced.  .The missionary doctors,are occasionally, called ln by the wealthy classes,  and generally charge a good, round fee  (or such service.   I was sent for last  Bpring to prescribe for the mo_he������ of a  rich magistrate, and was informed ^hat  _  would bave to feel  her  pulse  by  deans of a silk cord extending out  from the bedroom.    I W6nt through  the solemn farce, nnd charged $20 'for  style.'   Subsequently I saw my patient  face to face.  "A good deal that has been written  about the strange methods of the native .practitioners Is all  moonshlne/V  continued Dr. Johnson, "but the truth  Is singular enough without any embellishment.   The first task of a Chinas  medical student upon entering th'e Imperial College at Shanghai ls to learn  the 300 'life spots' in the human body.  IA 'life spot' is supposed to be a place  through which a needle inay be passed  -,  (without causing death. -The .Chinese  believe firmly in demoniacal possesion, and their doctors* do a great deal  of   stubbing ,and   prodding   to make  ., -  holes for the purpo'se.of letting out tha  evil spirits that are causing the sick-,  nese. 11 waa .called to see one .poor lel->'  : - low who wae dying of jaundice, and  -'   counted over eighty punctures in his  chest and arms.    The Chinese practitioners had furnished the demon "with  ;     plenty'of exits,,, but he'declined to de-  '     part.,.

Asbell and ha  (a a confirmed, and cunning slave to 11'  Jumlnating gas.  _ Asbell declare- gas ls a better intoxl-  eant than liquor and a better "dope"  than ether, morphine, opium or cocaine. He Is' hopelessly enslaved by  the habit, and will lie, steal or resort ta  any trick for a chance to place bis  mouth over a gas jet, turn the knon  and fill his lungs with the fumes. Phy*  elclanfl eay the stuff will certainly klU  bim. -  . Asbell says the sensations that fol-  ,9 - (ow an inhalation of gas axe far more  . pleasant than those following the taking of a dose of any drug. "You feel as  if you were floating in air," he says.  "But lt gives you a terrible cough. - It  catches me in the chest sometimes, and  -.-Mlhan-I have to sutler. Yet that passes  away after a time. Gas has pretty  nearly the same effect as ether, except  [that''when you take ether you feel aa  (if you wero choking. With gas you da  not feel that way.

Asbell has been a railroad man, and  Ills slavery to the gas habit was discovered while he was in a railroad hospital/ He did not te_pond to treatment  and physicians discovered that he was  ���������urreptltiousir taking gas.

Till*.   NEUROTIC   CHILD.  Tho responsibilities of parenthood  nro great uncic-r any circumstance;  but tho tnsl*. of inciting a well-balanced,, useful citizen, vigorous in  body n---_ -;,.rit, of tho child who  stu-'.. liin hundicapped by a delicate  ihtt-vtius organization is one of the  most'serious and far-reaching problems,, o/ whicli it is possible to conceive. 0  'Jhe delicately poised and high-  strung nervous system ot the nouro-  tic child renders it abnorninlly sensitive to all influences, fur gootl or  evil, mentally, morally and physically. It forms a predisposing factor.  of the utmost importance in the production of the many forms of mental  unci moral weakness or disc-aso which  unfortunately appear to be constantly increasing with thc development  of civilization. The present conditions of life are such as largely to  annul tho brutal, but in the long run  salutary, workings of the law of the  survival of the fittest; and it is the  right of the little ones whoso mental  equipment has suffered through the  overspeciati*_ation that characterizes  modern times to bo so tenderly and  wisely guarded during their period of  growth that the ever-present danger  of serious nervous disease shall bo  worded ol)'.  With such children the merely scholastic training of tho mind should  assume second place, and every effort be made to develop self-control  and other moral qualities, and to  render tho body as vigorous and active   as  possible.  The neurotic child usually needs no  incentive to study, and is often  among the pri_c-wi������inors in his classes, but tlio feverish overactivity of  early j'ears is only too often succeeded by nervous breakdown later  on. //The grown person's loss.'responsive faculties, wlion forced too far,  'simply refit, e to go on, and so compel cessation of the labor until tho  expended nervous energy has been restored; but the impressionable mind  of the normal child is easily overworked. The chances of a mental  breakdown are greater than in thc  case of a child who is physically  vvcalr. -  -The neurotic child more than any  olher needs abundant sleep, abundant fresh air and sunshine good  food of tho plainest and most easily  digestible sort, but should avoid  talcing much moat, 1ea and co.oe,  and . pices. Above all, it needs forbearing, tactful treatment, free from  irritability cr unt-voncss of temper,  at tho hands of ils elders. Corpornl  punishment, always of doubtful  valuo, i. entirely out of place in  correiting the faults of such children. Much reading, piano-practice  and al! solitary occupations must bc  forbidden, while cold-bathing and;  gymnastics, but especially outdoor  games, help greatly to strengthen  the  poorly balanced  nervous system.

Even      the      Gorgoously    Dressed  Ar__7 Officers Don't Enliven  Lifo.  One of tho most striking discoveries which one makes iu the course of  a residence in this country, wutos  the St Peteisbuig correspondent of  the Loudon Morning Post, is the ail  prevailing inertia of tho stalwart  and soc-nungly lusty liivssinn race, an  11 ci tm that appeals 10 lc common  lo nll-rlnsscs and to spr'iig from no  paitlcular accident of cucilmstanco  i.nless the long Uussian winter can ������������������  bo hefd partly responsible.

Brave, charming, and good nntureti  as the Russian oflicer is universally  acknowledged to be by those who  1-novv lum,-he has ceitainly no compelling unpiilso towards thc recreations of saddle and greensward, and  one contiast- wondeungly tho u-i-  ceasiug outdooi p'ograninio of an Indian militaiy station under the ener-  xaling influence of a tiopical almos  phero One cenior oflicer, probably  not of Russian stock, maj Le seen at  times taking horse exercise in "tlu  streets of St. 'retcrsburg, and I believe that a letter addressed to this  city "to the Cer.eial who rides,"  would find him without difiiculty. ,  With thc jounger generation of the  militaiy caste it is  the same story.  In tlio spacious grounds attached   to  one of the cadet headquarters in Sr  Petersburg one maj' find on a     luM  summer evening   the   j-ouths of     tho-.

An  aimy, it hns been snid, marches en  its stomach, the Russians for several  generations have lived on their boots.

Chicago, Dec. 27.���������On a crowded  Ashland avenue electric car at Thii ty-  sixlh stieet last night, six armed men  fired a score of shots through the  windows and roof 'and were engjged  in robbing the passengers, including  seveial women and children, when the  trolley pole was removed from the  iv ire hy lhe conductor and tbe bandits  were left sffuggling in the d.ukness.  While the male passengers and .the  car ciew were battling with the  thieves a wagon' load of policemen  arrived and five of the robbers weie  captured.  Two men boarded the front platform  of the car at Thirty-sixth street, and  holding ievof.ers at" the head of^thi^  motoim.in, James Ciillnghan, forced  him lo stop the car.

"Everybody hold   np   your  hands.,  We want your money and  will shoot  the first man   who tries  lo stop  up,"  said the leader of the bund.
