The nosition  they   occupied   was   extremely strong and cunningly arranged with a   second  line   of   entrench-  ments, which would have   caused   us  heavy loss had the attack been  made.  The lighting was practically  confined  to the cavalry division which as  usual  did exceedingly well and Gen.

Previous to their accession to power, there, was no question of high, protective tariffi on implements as distinguished from a  revenue tariff, but it was held on  every platform to be the first duty  o������ the incoming g-._rnment to totally abolish the infamous duty which  TJ  sapping  the    lifeblood    of  the  Western   farming   commuut).   And'  nobody   who   lived   in   the West in  1S96 and who took the trouble to.attend   the   frequent   Liberal   meetings  -which were held in every settlement,  can    have    failed    to    notice , how  much the welfare of the downtrodden  farmer was a source of anxiety- to tlie  Liberal  party.      Speakers   on   every  platform     groaned    whenever    they  thought of the perfidy  of the Conservatives who were merely puppets  of clav  in the hands'of  the    great  eastern   monopolists.      The   bloated  manufacturer suffused with the blood  JB the honest industrious farmer was  .Rid up to execration and the earliest  Vl_ty   Of   the   incoming  party  would  be to reach out a helping hand to the  of    toil,    whose  The episodes which accompanied  the attempted prorogation of the  British Columbia legislature last  week, would have been infinitely  more amusing had they not included  the making of the whole province  ridiculous and the bringing of the  dignity of the crown into contempt,  As it was, it must have been a very  amusing sight. The premier, who  had a letter of dismissal from the  ���������lieutenant-governor in Ins pocket,  carried by a majority of 22 to 14 a  resolution expressing the dissatisfaction of the house at tbe action taken  by Her Majesty's representative.  While the lieutenant-governor waited outside the closed doors of the  legislative chamber, thc house witli  only one dissentient passed a vote  of want of confidence in Hon. Joseph  Martin, who had been chosen to  form a cabinet in succession to the  Semlin government. When the lieutenant-governor at length secured  admission, and commenced the ceremonial incident to prorogation, he  found only his chosen adviser, Joe  Martin and' a complete collection of  empty benches, all the other members, including the speaker, having  made a speedy exit. ,  There were many comic situations  developing out of the spectacular  course adopted by the members to  show their resentment of the treatment accorded them by his honor.  The one which excited most amusement, however, comes direct from  one of the officers forming the staff  for the momentous occasion, who  tells the story in the Province thus*.  I was at the main entrance door, and  his honor was just entering when he  noticed with surprise that all the  members were leaving for thc lobbies.  He stopped in amazement,. and stood  hesitating, apparently undecided  whether to advance, retreat or reconnoitre. As he stood thus irresolute, tho staff respectfully awaiting  his pleasure���������it was no concern of  theirs���������a youthful page came rushing  up and abruptly delivered his message:  "Say,'1 he exclaimed in a shrill  boyish treble, "Mr. Martin says  you'ro to come in right away.''  "Then the "forward march" commenced, while the staff resisted with  difficulty the temptation to laugh.  The general impression at Victoria,  strengthened by telegrams from Ottawa, seems to be that Hon. T. R.  Mclnnes will very shortly be relieved  of his duties as lieutenant-governor  of British Columbia, the .Dominion  government having resented his having placed himself in such a position as to bring the dignity of the  crown into contempt. Nor is the  choice of Mr. Martin for premier  approved by the federal powers, despite the overture for peace which he  has put forth in the indicated intention of forming an all-Liberal cabinet, as was plainly intimated in the  official notice to J. C. Brown of Now  Westminster, to have nothing to do  with Mr. Martin's government if desirous ot remaining in the civil ser  vice of Canada. Speculation i������  therefore divided at the present time  ���������whether  or  not    Mr.  Martin    will  more,  ���������aoTOy-handed son o*. -i., .r."^ 1 succeed in filling his cabinet: whoth-  awtul PuB^-:^hMbSat to ttl ������ or not his honor will be > retain-  ST^i^^&Sbtc^ cd in his high office. In the1 mean  plete effacement of anything resembling a tariff on agricultural machine. , would raise the farmer out  of the slough of Tory misery into  the clear sunshine of Grit prosperity. Who cared for, the financiers of  the country while a single Western  fanner was harrassed by au objectionable tariff? Should a paltry  twenty or twenty-five percent be allowed to deprive the toiling husbandman and his numerous family of  their daily food? Perish the thought!  Down with monopoly and up with  the horny-handed son of toll, and incidentally up with the great Liberal  party, his trusted though untried benefactor.  Since 189G. however, a change has  come over the spirit of the farmer's  dream. The ministers of the crown  tiave been made to see that in order  to carry on house keeping on a  sound financial basis, a revenue has  got to be raised somehow, and it  would be a very hard thing indeed  ta do anything nasty to the great  -eastern���������manufacturing���������firms;���������some  of whom it must be admitted, were  very generous indeed in their contributions towards the Liberal campaigning funds during the general  elections as well as in more than  one Ontario bye election. And when  they came to think of it, the condition, of the western farmer was  really  not  so  very bad    after    all.  ___-__ers wore difficult to please, anyhow, and seemed to prefer being discontented than otherwise. In any  case, everything could be fixed before the next general election, and  it necessary the blame could be  thrown on some of the Western representatives who were not in entire sympathy with the "party."  Hon. Mr. Sifton. who is supposed to  stand between the West and slavery  waa at Brandon on Friday evening  and in the course of an apologetic  ___ech found it necessary to say a  few words' on the agricultural machinery tariff problem. This is how  __ views It now. as his speech la reported in the Manitoba Free Press,  Mia own  special organ:  tn the matter of ajjricultur&l implements, a strictly revenue tariff  wfttild be more than the 20 per cent  nOT_. In force, and the implement dealers of eastern Canada, employing  S.C_3 men. had protested because they  claimed that they have been selected  ta bear the brunt of a tariff lower  than a strictly revenue tariff. They  say they don't want a tariff for protection, but a relief from having to  Pay the United States 35 per cent for  tn, raw material when American  fit-ms pay only 20 per cent on the finished product. Manilol-ians naturally  Bay: "Well, the duty ought to b.  cut down any way," but could they  star.d that [mm a finance minister's  standpoint? The Liberal policy had  been framed to meet, as far as possible, the wishes of all parts of tha  Dominion. Certainly, all could not  be fully satisfied. Ontario was displeased because lumber waa on the  free list. Manitoba wanted free implements. There must be a spirit of  compromise among the members of  the party if there was to be a Liberal  government  in  Canada.  The Herald makes no comment on  the foregoing extract except to point  out that Ontario is "displeased" and  that Manitoba "wants free implements" and that the fate of the Liberal government depends on "compromise" without which it cannot  exist. In the North West among  farmers who have sufficient intelligence to do their own thinking, the  -Liberal government ban unready  "compromised" itself to such an  extent with regard to Its promises  concerning       agricultural   machinery  time the remarkable scenes of Thursday are said to be crowned with fresh  complications owing to the fact that  his honor made so hurried" an exit,  after reading the prorogation speech,  as to forget the prescribed formalities of proroguing. The rules provide that after his honor shall have  read his speech and retired, tho  house shall l --assemble under Mr.  Speaker ,and pro forma motions close  the session. None of these were offered or put. Mr. Speaker Forster  declined to ascend the dias after his  honor had withdrawn, and only consented to act as "chairman" over a  meeting of the members of the "late  legislature.' as it was described, upon  the motion of Mr. Pooley, designating his as Mr.Forster of Delta. Without these resolutions appearing on  the journals, parliamentary authorities deny that the house is prorogued  and it may he that his honor will  be called upon to adopt the alternative left him, and dissolve the house  by proclamation at once.  RIFLE PRACTICE.  The present campaign in South  Africa promises to have results upon  modern military methods that will  be almost revolutionary methods,  says the Montreal Star. One of the  most important will certainly be the  elevation in public estimation of tho  volunteer system. In the past there  has been a disposition in England to  regard the volunteers as affording  little more than a reserve of rough  material out of which in case) Ht  great emergency an available fighting  torce might with time and labor'  be made. The campaign has shown"  that with very little preparation  volunteers are able to take their  place shoulder to shoulder with regu  lars and give an exceedingly good  account of themselves. The discovery  is an important one for Great, Britain  because the next quarter of a century threatens to give tho Rmpire  opportunities for such fighting and  it is desirable that Oreat Britain  should be in a position to defend Itself without resort to conscription  or the overwhelming militarism which  paralyzes the industrial energies of  continental nations. The South  African campaign has shewn that  marksmanship is moro Important than  drill and while tho volunteers can  never hope to rival the regulars in  drill there Is no reason why they  should not in  rifle shooting.  The lesson  ia tor the colonicc.    as  well  as for  the Mother  Country.    If  the   old   country   Is   going   to   ho in  for  any serious  trouble, the  colonies  arc likely to  he  in  for it also:    indeed it is    most likely to rise out of  colonial     complications    somewhere.  We  cannot keep   great  standing armies in   the  colonies;     but  we  ' can  encourage  our  men   to   bocomei  tfood  marksmen.    The stubborn   resistance  of the Boers shows  that a comparatively   small     nation     which   knows  how  to use  the  rlffe and   with  little  other military training can in defence  of  their own   territory keep  a   great  and  well   trained  army at   bay.    Our  Kovernment should take advantage of  the present military spirit, to encotir-  ag Iilierally the practice of rifle shooting  in  Canada.    The  first, and   most  obvious    need    Ib    to    provide  rifle  ranges     in      convenient      localities  throughout the country;    on*> is badly   needed  near  Montreal.   The   estimates   this  year  include   $75,000   for  rifle   ranges,   the   same   amount     as  voted Inst year and the government's  explanation   of    this    item     will   be  awaited  with  interest.  Good stories are lold of tho poker  games that were played In Trenton  away back in the fifties, and perhaps  none is better than that wliich relates how a wedding was postponed  because the bridegroom was interested  in a good sized jackpot.  Ono of tho hardest players that the  "regulars" had to deal with was James  Raw-son, who ran a general merchandise store down in Cumberland  county. He was also Interested In  thc oyster trade and, as the saying Is  nowadays, he had money to burn.  In the winter of 1S34 Itawson camo  to Trenton to help push through the  legislature a bill in which he was interested, and one evening he got  mixed up in a game of poker in the  United States hotel with Sol Travers,  Jerry Holcomb and Dick Collins,  three of the earnest payers that ever  drew   cards.  Thc game was innocent enough  when it started, but long about 3  o'clock the next morning it had assumed proportions calculated to make  an ordinary player gasp when th<*i  bets wore made. Rawson was the  youngest man at the table and had  probably played poker loss than any  of tho others, but he had money and  nerve, and the way he used both  mado the others keep their eyes open.  There wasn't much difference in the  winnings up to 2:30 o'clock, when the  cards suddenly got freakish, as they  will sometimes, and then they began  to run against Rawson.  The players wouldn't give up the  game lo eat, and they had their food  brought to them when breakfast time  came. They laid down their cards  long enough to eat, then went at it  again. Rawson's hard luck kept up.  Ho turned his hat around, crossed his  legs, got up and walked around his  chair, and did everything that a superstitious poker player does to" change  his luck, but it wouldn't change. His  money kept drifting away till 10 in  the forenoon, when he coiinted hi_  capital and found he had $200 left.  He had fed about ?1,800 to the "tiger"  and naturally felt a little cranky.  At last a jackpot was started about  10:30 o'clock and the cards were dealt  round half a dozen    times  or  and nobody got  openers.  "Hurry up, boys, and open it," said  Rawson. "I've got to catch that  11:45 train. I'm going to be married  tonight, and I must be in by 5 o'clock  and dressed for the occasion."  . But the boys didn"t seem to be able  to hui-vy. They dealt and dealt but  the right kind of cards wouldn't fall,  and finally there was a nice little pot  of about $600 on the table. At 11:30  Travers opened the pot for $100. Holcomb' and Collins stayed.  "I feel -just as if I was going to  win that pot," said Rawson, writing  some figures on a piece of paper and  tossing it to the centre of the table  with what money he had left. I'm  shy $50.00 boys, but I guess I'm good  for   it."  "Your check is as good as ��������� your  cash," said Travers.  "Every bit," said Holcomb and Collins. "Bui you'll never catch that  train," remarked Travers.  "By thunder!" remarked Rawson, "I  forgot all about that!" He looked at  his watch and found he had about  three minutes in which to get to the  station. "There's no use in trying to  make it now," he said. "They'll have  to postpone the wedding. I'll telegraph that I've missed the train." A  few minutes later a messenger was  sent to the telegraph office with a  message,  and  the game went on.  The pot was $1,01.0 strong when the  men drew curds, and the result was  the most remarkable set of poker  hands that the old time players in  Trenton recall. Travers was dealing. Holcomb called for one card.  Collins took one, Rawson four, and  Travers one.  Everybody about *. the table saw'  that there was business ahead. Travers made a bid for a raise oy netting $_!5.00. which was lifted $200.00 by  Holcomb. and Collins raised the $200,  so that when it came to Rawson it  cost S425 to get in. Everybody  thought lie would throw down his  cards, but he didn't. He slowly drew  =a-c'r.eckbook-out-of���������his-pocketi-vvrote  a check for 81,000 and shoved it into  the. centre ot the table, thus raising  Collins $57;.. The other players  thought he was bluffing. Travers  met the raise at once and added $500  to it. Holcomb saw-that and raised  it another ff.OO. Collins simply saw  the raise, and Rawson raised it another $1,000.  .  '  Travers settled back in his chair  and eyed Rawson. narrowly. "You've  got pretty good nerve, old man," h<*  said, "but you can't maJce me lay  down; not on a four card draw anyway." Then he saw Rawson's raise  of $1,000 and  increased it $500.  "1 call you," said Holcomb, shoving  in  $1.M0.  "I might as -well take a chance for  money," said Collins, laying $l,S00 on  the pile. Rawson put down another  check  for $500.  "Well, boys, I'm sorry for you."  said Travers, "I've got four queens."  He threw them down.  "That beats my four Jacks," ������ald  Holcomb. "And my four ten-," said  Collins. "But it don't beat my tour  kings," said R_w_on, spreading out  his cards. He had four kings and an  ace.  "Thundci-ation, what a draw!" exclaimed Travers.  "���������'Twas pretty good." said Rawson.  raking in the money. "I got them,  all in a bunch. I held up an ace.'"  Rawson won $15,000, and $11,250 of it  came out of the pockets of thc other  three men. It was the biggest Jackpot ever won   in Trenton.  After the money had been counted  and stowed avray in Rawson's imsido  pocket, he expressed remorse owr his  indifference to his wedding appointment. Cut he didn't have long to  mourn. The girl h<. was lo marry  had a mind of her own, and when  ah.: received Rawson's telegram she  got herself ready and boarding a  north-bound tniln. came to Trenton,  where -.he arrived about 6 o'clock in  tli<_ evening. KawsoH was delight' d  to see her, and they went (o a preacher's  and   wrri:  married.  Up to Date Articles for  Officers  and  Men.  An Ottawa paper says the kit to be  given the Strathcona Horse is so extensive it is hard to know just where  to  begin to enumerate it.      Well, first  of all, each man will have:  Three  woollen  over shirts.  Two  undershirts,  Two pair woollen drawers.  Three pair of socks.  Mention   must  not   be   forgotten  of  two   woollen  waiBtbands,   or    cholera  protectors.  Next the  outer clothing.  There  will  be an abundance of It.  Two  serge  suits.  Two khaki suits,  One  heavy  military   overcoat,  One waterproof coat,  One cavalry hat,  Two pair boots.  One of the serge suits is for mounted dress parade, the other for foot  parade. When mounted the men will  wear long boots; the trousers for the  riding uniform are shorter to suit;  when walking the men will wear ordinary boots ot the heavy make and  puttees.  The riding boots, by tho way, aro  of splendid stuff. They are mado of  calf skin, tan colored and are beautifully soft. They arc 16 Inches long.  The men are delighted with them.  These boots wore made by the Slater  company, and specially for tho contingent. Each boot carries a label to  that effect. The marching boots are  of very heavy serviceable leather.  The khaki suits: One will be used  for active service, that is mounted  work; the other around camp.  The tunics, both serge   and   khaki,  are made double backed, so as to allow for the wear of the bandoliers, or  cartridge belt.     When    the   material  wears, a fresh outer back can be sewed on.     For both suits  thero will be  brown leather belts.     The serge suits,  of course, are rifle green.     The serge  suits have a white collar with a narrow red braid at the bottom.  Other things are:  Two handkerchiefs.  Two towels.  Four single blankets.  One toque (woollen).  One razor.  Two clothes bruahe*.  One hair brush and two combs.  One pair braces.  One tin blacking and brush.  Soap.  One waterproof sheet.  Knife, fork, etc., etc., etc.  And every article Is of extra quality. Money has not been sparea.  The writer asked the cost of the  equipment. No one seemed to know,  and those who should know, if anybody does evidently didn't care to  talk about the gift horse. The figure  will be pretty high. A rough estimate  of the cost at ordinary store price  woud make each outfit worth $12o.  That figure, of course, does not include the horse's equipment,' which is  of the very best, and includes cir-  cingles, feed bags, etc.  The outfit will weigh pretty heal y.

It is  now proposed to instal these" people  on lands in the North "West and the  plan will be carried out as soon as  spring opens. The Government will  give the settlers, who are in all  about 30 families, free transportation,  and will lend them agricultural implements, seed grain and other necessaries, for tho cost of which the  government will be recouped at some  future time. The settlers have always done a little farming, and although they leave Anticosti with  some reluctance, within a couple of  years they will no doubt bless the  day when they left the bleak island  in the Gulf of St. Lawrence for the  more congenial climate of our great  -West. -. ���������- ..  . -----     --     --  These Ties are in the  very latest styles and  colors, and our very  large stock gives everyone an opportunity. to  select a tie to suit.

The Double Eagle Company lias been formed for the purpose, not only of mining its. present properkie.  but of acquiring promising claims and developing them to an extent that will justify their sale to English arid'  other companies at a profit. The company already owns and has paid for in full, the Trilby and Old. Saiil  properties in the famous 'Fish River district, aiid a three-quarters interest in the May Bee mine, in the  Lardeau district one and a half miles from Ferguson Sufficient promoter's shares have been set aside for the  purchase  of the remaining  quarter. -  The May Bee is the sister claim to the now famous Nettie L, which has broken all records in British  Columbia for large bodies of phenomenally rich ore. The May Bee and Nettie L were located together in  1802 by Mr. W. B. Pool (who has been appointed manager of the Double Eagle. Co.) Both claims carry identically  thc same rich ore on tho surface and the same remarkable ledge runs through both, carrying high values  in gold, copper, silver and lead. The promoters have already spent $4,000 in developing the May Bee, with  excellent results, and in order to place tho mine quickly on a shipping basis the company now offers the public  thn opportunity of investing to a limited extent in fully paid and non-assessable treasury shares (par value  $1)   at   10  cents  each.  Shares will be sold in blocks of 100 and upwards.  The company reserves the right  to   withdraw the  sale  of shares  from  the  market   at   any time    without   notice  Applications may be sent to the  Secretary,  A. H.

They  did      the  same   thing  at      the  French    newspaper    offices.        Subsequently   SOO  Laval   students   marched  "down to the French -newspaper .offices,  tore down  the British flags and substituted  university  faculty  flags    and  the  tricolors  plluffe.     The    president  of  the Laval  medical  college  made  a,  conciliatory   speech   in   which   he ��������� declared    that    Laval    was    thoroughly  loyal, but protested against the action  of   the   McGill   students.      He   closed  with   cheers   for   the   Queen.      When  the' McGill   men   heard  of  the   doings  of   the   Laval   men  "there  sfeemed  a  prospect  of  a  big  row.    , They  could  not  get   together   many   men.    .'However,  late, at night    a large party  ot  them followed by a * crowd of citizens  sathered around   Laval.     In anticipation of trouble there wore a couple of  .police patrols on hand.     The students  - outside : became  noisy, -and  the  Laval  authorities  turned  the  hose  on  them.  This  made  the  McGill  men  mad  and  they rushed  up the    steps,  but found  the doors locked.     They then smashed  about $30.00 worth of glass in the windows.     Finally the police came to the  conclusion   -that   it    had  lasted    long  enough     and    tried    to  disperse  -the  crowd.

The   correspondent    says:  "Forage for the horses is almost unobtainable   on     the     journey.     The  whereabouts of  the  enemy    is    not  exactly known, but mobile commanders  are  hovering  around' our  army.  We   anticipate  opposition    at  Abraham's Nek, three miles east of Paardeberg, where General - Joubert is reported to be collecting a force from  the whole  of  the  Ladysmith    force,  with  the northeastern  Free Staters."  There is no confirmation from Lorenzo Marque- of the rumor that President" Kruger   has   _olned    President  Steyn  and  is  on  the point of opening negotiations for. peace. The Times  in     its   afternoon   edition   yesterday  announced that President Kruger had'  left "Pretoria" for an unknown destin-  tion,   and   it   is   conjectured   conferences  between the presidents ot the  two republics would take place. There  was   no   official   information  respecting- overtures for peace. Members of  parliament  were    not    disposed    to  attach any importance to the .rumor  and military men explained that probably ' the object  of  the presidential  conference was the adoption ot measures of defence against the   advance  of Lord' Roberts.    Bloemfontein cannot be defended but there are lines  of hills at the Vei and Valsh rivers  ���������where  a  strong  stand  can be made  and. the  passage . of   the Vaal   river  can be contested on the way" to Pretoria.    The  Dutch commanders cannot   be massed* under single  leadership -without  direct  agreement    between Kruger and Steyn.   It is   not  believed   in   influential    circles  here  that the United States* will be asked  by thei Transvaal and the Free State  to make approaches to Great Britain  in  the direction   of    peace.       Since  Kruger and Steyn arei more likely to  avail   themselves  of    the service   of  ���������Messrs Hofmeyer and Schreiner, the  intervention of Germany is aa    unlikely as that of France.     It.ia believed that the' German emperor was  among the first to send  congratulation's to the Queen on the surrender  of  Cronjes forces and the relief    of  Ladysmith.    He    sympathizes    with  England and has done so throughout  the war.   Cecil Rhodes visit   to Ber-  ��������� lin ' last  spring,   when    the emperor  displayed a remarkable knowledge of  the  details  of .railway  construction,  was not without its effect   and    the  Queen's^- influence   over   her   gi___-  son  hhs  been  strongly   exercised.

The   total 'losses  ot   the   regiment  killed/wounded, sick and missing, is  109.   The   miiitia    department    will  therefore enlist a unit of 125 officers  and men.   The officers will have   to  be well   chosen _��������� to  fill   the  vacancy  caused by the death of' Captain Arnold, and to take the places of'Cap-  tin  Rogers,  who   is. ill,   though   not  seriously,and Lieutenant McLean.who  has joined  the Imperial. Field  artillery.    Recruiting will be begun today  to be carried on.under the supervision of the district officers commanding.  Unit men will be-mobilized" at Ot-  _tawa   according , to ..the   present- arrangements, - and   will     sail''on   the'  Monteroy,   with   Strathcona's  Horse,  Preference  will   be  given    to  applicants who have served in the militia  and- who  are  unmarried.

"Cool,   daring,  resourceful  and  poa  sessed  of  a  wonderful  power  ol  M_r  Restraint, Lord Kitchener is the wy  man  for  the   position   he  will   nil   m  South   Africa,"   declares  A.   J.   Simpson,  and  Englishman,  who is watching  the  trouble now in  progress with  some    anxiety.      "He  Is not    the soldiers'   idol   that     Lord     Roberts,   his  great    chief,    is,    because    Kitchener  never  spares  his  men;   nor,  for  that  matter, does he spare   himself.     Once  a  project  Is afoot,  once a goal  is to  be reached,  Kitchener means    to    got  there.      It is hardly to   be wondered  at that a man of this hard, cold, calculating disposition Is  not loved;  and  'Tommy'   will   never   make   a  pet   of  Lord Kitchener.  But he admires him,  and places implicit faith In his judgment,  and  would  follow    him    whero-  ever he chose to go.     And what more  would  a    commander    have?     Every  soldier hopes for a 'chance' and many  hope    in vain.       Kitchener's    chance  came  in  1882,  when  tho  rising tide of  Mahdlsm  threatened    to sweep    from  end   to   end  of the  Soudan.      But  It  was expected that the false prophet's  successes were being exaggerated,* and  young Kitchener was deputed to make  investigations and report.     Ho dressed  himself as nn Arab trader and entered  Omdurman,  taking his  life in  his  hands.      He   went  among    the    wild  Kahablsh     and    treacherous    pashas,  who,  had  they  once    penetrated'   his  disguise, would have shown him little  mercy.-..,   One   day   he   witnessed   the  execution of a supposed    spy in    the  tow.n. The poor wretch was subjected  to  such   torture   that   Kitchener  procured  a tiny phial of cyanide of potassium, which he concealed about his  person.  As he subsequently  remarked  to a brother officer:      "Death at their  hands  I did not fear.     I expected It.  But such a death!"     For two years,  Kitchener lived under these conditions,  never  knowing    when    he  might    be  brought face to  face    with  a violent  death;  but all the while communicating to the heads of the Egyptian intelligence   department   information   of  the utmost ��������� importance regarding  tho  Mahdi     and     his     movements.       So  strictly was    his-   identity    preserrsd  that the British  troops: did not: know  him, and a .'Tommy-  on one   occasion  flung a brickbat at the   brave young  officer,    whom    he     mistook     for     a  'bloomin'; negro.'  The blow inflicted a  rather . nasty^ scalp wound,   and; had  the  additional     result  of    creating   a  proverb:   'Throw a  brick at a negro  and. you'll   hit ; the : Sirdar.'

It   is   expected   that  the   crossing of the "Vaal river will be disputed  at Fourteen Streams,  where  the railway  bridge  has  been  wrecked.

For the past  two years the ndinin-  istralion or the .'.'fairs of this province  has heen reduced to 11 game of batllc-  don  anil    shuttlecock   between   rival  politk'iiins. whose  main, if not indeed  their sole object, has  been  to hold on  to or to regain tho swots of otlU**-.  Ever since tho downfall of lhe Turner  government,    which    whatever  may  have been its faults, at all 0vents gave  us a stablu and  conservative government, (ind. r which the province Hindu  great strideu   forward, ever sincu its  downfall the province and people huvo  been   relegated   to  the    background,  while the rules of the legislature nml  the constitution  have  been stretched  to  their utmost capacity  in  order lo'  allow   the   political   contortionists nt  Victoria lo   give  an   astonished and  very   much    disgusted    electorate   a  chance of seeing how it's done.    With  the   Semlin    administration    the   old  system of personal party government,  wliich has so long prevailed in this  province,   showed   unmistakably that  it was inadequate to meet the requirements of the community in its present  advanced stage of progress.    As long  as it was an isolated society, in which  everybody knew everybody  else and  the wants   anil   leqnirements of the  several   sections    were    simple    and  easily handled, the old way did well  enough.    It has lasted into  the new  era too long for the advantage of the  province.   The last two sessions have  proved  in   the   most   conclusive  mid  startling fashion how mischievous it,  can be made and how easily it is open  to abuse.   And it has  wound np by  landing thu affairs of the province in 11  condition   closely  resembling  chaos.  Personal party   government   is   only  possible on   tho  one   condition   that  thero arc to be found men nf sufficiently commanding inlinencu and magnetism to attract a working majority in  the  legislature to their standard.    At  tlie  present juncture there is no politician in the province that;can answer  these requirements.   Neither Mr. Semlin  nor  Air. Turner could command n  veal majority in tbe last legislature.  They   rose   or   fell  according  as   Air.  Martin directed his inachinaLions for  or against then).   Neither is it all in-  intelligible on what grounds either of  them  intend again  to solicit the suffrages of  the  electors or in support-of  what definite  principles they are making their appeal.     And    indeed  io is  broadly suggested in recent despatches  from the capital that both the Turner  provincial party and  the Semlin provincial  party   are   really   only    two  wings of an opposition to the Martin  government and that the only itite'-  ligible principle, which they represent,  is  the  intense desire of the old'timers  in the legislature to enjoy for another  term   the   good   things   of   power  at  Victoria.    They certainly   were quite  willing to form a coalition a few days  ago,  and there   seems  to  he  nothing  very  wildly   unreasonable  in tbe sup-  pnsit.ioii  that   the   understanding  arrived nt then may hold good yet in the  event of the combination of the Turner  .���������mil Semlin   provincial   parties   being  able   to   command   a majority in tlie  next legislature, after going through  the motions of conti'Rtinsr against  one  another during tlie coming election.   -  To  an  elecloiate. which  is sick and  tired     of    watching   these     political  acrobats   cutting  their   antics,   while  the   business  of   the province  is at a  standstill,   tlie   only  possible  method  of escape seems to  he. to abandon all  idea    of    reviving   tlie   old   foi m   of  personal  party,   which   may   well   be  allowed   lo  receive   its   quietus   with  the     Semlin     government    and     to  introduce fresh  blood, fresh ideas and  fresh    influences   into our affairs   by  adopting the system which lias so long  prevailed    in    Ontario,    Quebec   and  Manitoba of  contesting our provincial  elections along the lines of the parties  -in the-Douiinioii-House._ItJs_i*,_nolion_  which   has  long been in the air in this  province and it  is quite certain that  tlie recent era of disorder, violence and  trickery   at   Victoria,     has    disposed  a   large   and   constantly    increasing  number   to   lock   favorably   upon   it.  Mr. Martin, if he can form his cabinet,  will run ns tbe prospective premier  of  an    avowedly    Liberal    government.  Conservative-  nil  over  the   province  have   not   been   slow     to    take    the  challenge  up ll1*'*   from   every   point  come reports oE conventions  to  select  a Conservative candidate or of eandi  dates coming out avowedly under  tlie  Conservative banner.    The  Conservative association here  has  been  among  the first to  take the  matter  up,   and  thev have called a convention to select  a candidate for  March   17.      The association here  is one of  the strongest  in proportion to tbe population of  the  city  iu   the  province.      Its  executive  council is a thoroughly representative  and  influential "one and completely in  touch  with  every  class  and  shade of  opinion in the community.   They have  determined to lu-ingout a Conservative  candidate wilh the very fullest knowledge of  the .situation existing here iu  town  and are confident that the mass  of the electorsdesii'i:aconti'sr on party  lines* and are equally certain that, Ihey  will poll their votes "for .**. Conservative.  The   platform adopted for a provincial  programme  hy the New Westminster  convention last. October is a practical,  and   at   the same  time,    progressive  document.    It  appeals strongly to tho  ideas prevalent in the present trend of  public opinion.    It does not undertake  anything  outside of the powers of our  provincial legislature to carry nut.    It.  docs not seek  to catch  votes by pledging  the  party to perform  all   at once  what, in the nature of things must take,  years  of patient elfort to bring about.  The  Herald will   republish  the   platform   in    our   next   issue   ami    feels  certain   that  it    will    appeal    strongly     to     the   best    and     most     progressive  thought  in   the riding.    It is  put forward as the pledge under which  the Conservative party in the province  appeals   to   the   electors lo  place  ils  lenders in power, feeling confident that  event!*   have   by   this   time   inndo   it  patent that a strong, firm, practical.  liuMnps? government, such as thc Conservative   party   from   its very large  majority in  this province  can   nlnne  give, is the kind of government needed  by  British  Columbia,   today  and   the  kind of government, which alone can  sueces...fully inaugurate, ns its platform  promises that  it will inaugurate, that  era of social reform for which, rather  than   the     old,    wearisome,    useless  struggle of petty politics, the. eyes of  men are looking and longing today.
