Money saved is money made  This is a great scheme _ to  It is with  feelings of the greatest  satisfaction   thnt    the    Hkiiald announces the unanimous nominal ion by  Saturday's convention ot Thos. Taylor,  of  Trout   Lake   City, to   run   as thu  Liberal-Conservative candidate in the  coming  provincial elections.    It tines  ]not   think   lh.it a stronger  or   more  popular   candidate   could   have   been  selected.  His candidatute received the  most enthusiastic   endnrsation   of the  whole  of the L-iidi-au.   A glance at  I the names of the delegates to tbe con  vention will show  what a thoroughly  representative gathering it was and to  what a very huge extent- it expressed  lhe feeling of the whole community in  the   action   taken    by    tlie    Liberal-  Conservativ party in bringing forward  ! a candidate to contest this constituency  on Dominion party lines.  The idea,' which furnished the spring  of this action, is ably expressed in the  resolution  adopted-  by   the    Liberal  Conservative convention last Friday  This --resolution' .points .out   that a  ; similar eiisis  exists now-in  this pro*  | vince as had to be faced tit the original  formation or the  Liberal-Conservative  party in Canada.    That it was formed  out  of the  most patriotic,  far-seeing  and intelligent elements of all the then  existing shades or political    thought  in the Dominion  with  the  purpose of  supplying the  country with a govr-rn  ment'which would be able to  work on  j broad and  vigorous  lines  for the welfare of lhe-whole community.   That  the idea gathered  round  the  banner  ofTaber.il Consei valisin the very  best  men in  tlie   country   and   proved   so  successful in its results that toittoday  we  owe the  fact.that Confederation  was rendered possible and thatCanada  insteadpf being a  vague  name for a  string" of    scattered   and   mutually  antagonistic ;  provinces    and    crown  1 colonies is to-day in  reality  a  nation,  strong and united   and   with  a   very  real and independent inlluence  in  tho  wider affairs of the Empire  VICTORIA POLITICAL POINTERS*1, CONSERVATIVE   CONVENTION.

The carrying of such: a flag through  the streets of Montreal, the commercial  metropolis     ot    Britain's    most  loyal    colony    was ���������    an     extremely  thoughtless and    ill-adivsed proceed-  : ins which might under.other circumstances have been productive of personal   injury  to    the    processionists.  Eorttmately the incident came to an  emi without  any   serious  result.  There are other considerations  however which present themselves in  this connexion. Wa have in Canada  too mahv modifications of the Cana-  fresh  tea:  dian citizen.    We have    French-Can  avians,     English-Canadians,    Scotch-  Canadians,        Irish-Canadians,    . and  Giermari-Canadians, arid    should    the  present  spirit  of   exclusiveness   keep  on growing we shall no doubt in the  West at least, have in 'the near, future   Doukhobor-Canadians,   Galiciau-  Canadians  and     Finnish-Canadians,  each   with  its  own  national  society,  and its desire to remain distinct from  the rest o������ the    community.    Every  fawn and village in Canada has    its  French,   English,   Scotch   and   Irish  brotherhood    the members of which  keep    themselves in    little rings or  circles, as far apart as possible from  their neighbors.

Bloemfontein, Thursday, March 15,���������  Lord Roberts entered tbe Free Stato  capital today unopposed. He lay iu  Venter Volel, U miles away, huh  night with General Kelly-Kenny'H  and Colonel Vlles' division, the Guards  brigade and the mounted cavalry.  General French having cut the runway and tho telegraphs e-xperlened a  slight skirmish with some Boers htiud-  ing the kopjoH to the south cast of  the town early In the morning. Tho  cavalry brigade moved forward and  occupied slowly several kopjeB- which  commanded the Boers. A few woll  placed shells on the Boor artillery  drove oft the enemy.  General French then sent: out scouts  to* feel their way toward the town,  perceiving which the correspondents  of The Sydney .Herald and. the London Dally News, and another paper,  galloped forward and , entered the  town which', wore an every day aspect. '������������������  The peoplo were out shopping, or  for morning walks, and at Aral th*.  threo newspaper mon were regarded  as townsfolk. When later It 'became  known that they wore: forerunners of  the British army they were greeted  cordially and conducted to the cluo,  where they mot Mr, Frasor, of tho  executive council, the mayor and  other officials. These three were persuaded to .take carriages and go to  meet Lord. Roberts. As the i party  drove out of the city, the:British cavalry were crowding around like a  huge net. The disputation soon..arrived opposite the knpjo where Lord  Roberts was standing and the correspondents rode forward and had tho  honor of announcing to the commander In chief that Bloemfontein would  surrender.  A llttlo later 'Hie deputation began  to approach and Lord Roborts wont  forward to meet them. Tho scene was*  picturesque . In   the   extreme.  A few yards away, the guns of a  battery pointed their grim mouths  toward the late position off the Boers,  while- the tin roofs of Bloemfontein  shone in the distance.  After salutes had; been exchanged  a member of the > deputation stepped  forward and.declared that the town  I being without: defences wished to;surrender, hoping that Lord Roberts  I would protect life and property. . Ho I  replied that providing Ihore was no  opposition -. he; would undertake to  guarantee  the   securing  ot  both.  The Interview was very: cordial without a sign of solemn ess. It struck  the correspondents that the deputation seemed revived by the presence,  of the British- troops.������������������*.���������.. Lord Roberts  notified the deputation of his .intention, of entering the town - Instantly.  They withdrew* to Inform, the townspeople. : Lord Roberts then made his  military disposition ordering the . Ilrst  brigade to follow him and to takii  possession of the town. .With.his:staff  and the military attaches he descended    the, kopje and arrived: oh':the  SEIGE OF LADYSMITH.  By W. G.

The  sandbag plating of the conning tower  was six foot thick and shoulder high;  the rlvots wore red earth, loose but  binding;   on   the   parapets    sprouted  tufts of grass, unabashed and rejoicing In the summer weather. Against  the parapet leaned a couple of men  with the clean cut, clean shaven jaw  and chin ot the naval officer, and   a  half  a dozen   bearded    blue  jackets.  Thoy stared hard out of sun-pucker-  , od eyes over tho' billows    ot    kopje  and  veldt.  J\_������rward we  looked  down  on    the  one *.7:   aft we looked    up to    tho  other.
