The Revelstoke   contingent   to   the  Vancouver Liheial convention retui tied on Sunday   mot ning   without any  visible marks of the exciting scenes in  which they   had   been   engaged.     In  fact the meetings though disoiderly,  were a great, deal more good  humored  than   the   newspaper leports ^wciuld  have    led     one     to    imagine.     The  convention    itiulf    broke    up     without doing any business, thc lesolution  of want of confidence in   Mr.   Martiu'-  goveitiilient having    that   etfect.   for  wliiih it has doubtless designed.  Thei e  weie at least one half of tho  delegates  who were solid   for   party   lines   and  Martin.    The dis>t*ntients   were   split  up among themselves and had   to   re-  diuo lhe convention to uselessness  in  otdertoel_ectaretre.it.   The constituent les outside of the influence   of the  const cities weie   mostly   for   Martin.  The Boundary, Rossland,  North  Eist  Kootenay, South East Kootenay weie  solid.   Nelson was anti-Martin, Revelstoke was for him exiept J.  M. Kellie,  Kaslo     and     S.indon   were   divided  Kamloops was anti Mm tin.   Vancouver was for him and two ihiids   of   the  Victoria delegates.     The   Nanaimos,  headed by Dr. McKechnie, v*. ere  solid  against     him.      The   after    meeting,  whiih declined in favor of putty  lin-es  and Mai tin's leadership was  attended  hy   100   accredited   delegates   to    the  original convention out of a total 2S9  and there were   several   Martin   men  who were not awaie that the  meeting  was to be held.    The man,   who seems  to have come out of the  whole affair  witli'' flying- colors  is Smith  Curtis,  the new Minister of Mines.      He   won  golden opinions from all present,  and  could   have    carried,     had    it   ' ever  come   to   that,   a"   big    majotity    of  the convention to vote lor   him   as   a  provincial Ie ider of the Liberal   party.  The following list of the vote   on   the  question    of ,the   Cassiav    delegates,  whetlier they should   be  admitted   or  not shews rlcm-ly how the Martin and  anti-Martin     element     stood.       This  delegation was composed  of  residents  of Victoiia, whose .names are^ on  the  Cassiar voters' lists, but who were not  elected in   the constituency .and, who  really represented  a Victoiia si heme  to swamp the   Martin   vote.

Il the meantime Lap drove slowly  dewr the street. He passed Dr.Wash-  burn's gate irresolutely, then paused,  cuim back and dismounted, tied his  l-.crse and went up to the gate with  an air of grim determination. Yes,  tho lounger was no doubt right, it  trust be the tooth. At the sound of  the boll he had-himself >-ung he grew  perceptibly paler; and then fell into  a cowardly trembling as the doctor  cpened the door.  "Good afternoon, Lap. Anything  the matter.,' --  "I want to see���������" the trembling  increased;    then  his resolution   for  said It chould.    He was losing hope.  "I was only eight years old then."  "Yes,   know;    I've been  waiting."  "You woro very good  to mo;   you  always  gave ine  tho biggest apples,  1  remember."  "Yes," But he Uarod not look up;  the story books said sho should blush  and stammer. The color ebbed out  of hia face.  "Was I very heavy when you held  me up?" Bhe asked, breaking the  pause.  "Nojti above common. I.n fa/Jt I  never felt any weight except���������your  arm on my neck." Then the color  came back with a rush. "You kissed  me when 1 put you down',' he said  reverently. *.  "How shockingly improper, and I  eight years old."  How could she laugh over a thing  B'j sacred? Then he tried to recall  the plan of his dialogue ,and said:  ' 'Vve planted hollyhocks up and down  the front walk."  "Have you." Again ho was rebuffed. He had hoped she would say  they were her favorite flowers. All  the heroines said such things.  "Do you like snowballs * and BWeet-  betsies?"  "Not particularly."  And the garden was full ot them,  planted for her! Presently ho stole  a look at her, and tho misery tightened about' his heart. In none of  the story hooks had tlio girl sat  calmly thus while tho hero poured  out his heart to her. Then he made  a last effort.  "I suppose it wouldn't bo right to  hold a girl   to a promise    she  mado  when she was only eight years old?"  "No;    not unless she was ���������willing."  "And you ain't willing?"  "No."     Then    she    added     softly.  "The fact is, I'm soon to bo married."-  He got up slowly.   "Good bye, Miss  Emma;    reckon I bettor go and see  ycur pa again about that cider."  In the hall he looked ruefully at  his hat before taking it from tho  rack.  "Didn't belong there after all," he  said, and went away.  "Must have been a bad tooth," said  tho first lounger as he saw him drive  past.  "Yes, Lap looks like he was about  yanked in two. Tooth must hare  broken   oft."  Brt it was  not a  tooth   that  was  broken, it was a lonely, human heart.  ���������__ o   A novel feature of flat shaped Bold  mesh purses and bags is the attachment at the bottom of a row of gold  tasselllke pendants.

Dublin, April 6���������r4:15 " a-m.}^  Queen Victoria's flrst day of residence  in Dublin passed quietly and unevent.  fully. Such scenes as there were  might well have occurred' in London.  The official announcement of the formation of the Irish Guards was not  given out here aud came from London too' late for the afternoon  papers. Neither the Freeman's Journal ,the Independent Journal nor the  Irish Times comment upon it In the  morning, but the Express says: "It  ia a great and kindly compliment to  Ireland," and suggests that the  Guards be composed of the remains  ot the Irish regiments, which have  fought so valiantly in South  Africa.'  The Queen is in the beet of health  and certainly she looked so during  both drives. When she went out oa  her afternoon drive, without an es-  oort, carriages, cabs and jaunting  care persisted in following her and  the policemen, after a few futile efforts, allowed this unuBual proceeding.

This was evidenced at the  Flatt sale of Shorthorns, held in this  city a few' weeks ago,', as the large  majority of the buyers at the sale  were American*!,1, who represented  five or six states, buyers ��������� coming  from as' long a distance as the  state of Iowa. A few breeders and  importers in Canada- have made a reputation for tho quality of the stock'  they have-to sell, ��������� and scarcely a  week passes .by that .shipments are  not made from Hamilton to the United - States. There are a few importers and breeders in the vicinity of  Hamilton, principally W D. Flatt,  of this city and Pettit & Son, of  Burlington Junction, who did the  larger part of the shipping business  to the United States. Every American farmer has pride in owning a  herd of thoroughbred cattle, and  within the past few years "the-Shorthorn seems to have the call: For a  bull or heifer that pleases their.fancy  they are willing to pay fancy prices.  It it no uncommon thing for our  Canadian importers to get1 from $1000  upward for a yearling bull, and heifers range from $500 upward. These  are fancy prices, and Americans seem  to be the only customers who pay  them. Since last September Pettit &  Son have sold to American farmers  nearly $11,000 worth of Shorthorns.  One fanner was over here two or  three weeks ago and bought from  that firm one hull and 14 heifers and  calves, for which he paid $6,900 and  another buyer paid $1000 - for -a  likely, young bull and $1075 for five  heifers. If the Scottish breeders of  Shorthorns could realize such prices  they would think that the-millennium was at hand. Our Canadian importers all go to Scotland, for not one  of them .would ever think of buying  a Shorthorn in England or Ireland  although the-breed there has just as  fine pedigrees. .' As' breeding cattle are  admitted free of ' duty . into the  Ur.ited States, that country offers a  market that Is worth cultivating by  our Canadian breeders.

EX-  Macleod Advance: We have said  that the sympathy oi the American  press, especially of the religious  press, is very largely with Great  Britain. There are a few exceptions,  which make'this general sympathy  the more' apparent. - The Christian  Herald, edited by the Rev. Dr. Tal-  mage, pursues a course of eulogizing the Boers and- carping at Great  Britain. "If Great Britain," it says,  " has made up her mind to absorb  that country for the sake of the  gold mines, it is on the principle  that might makes right. Certainly  we are fighting no such battle in the  Philippines. The Boers are maintaining a requlblican form of government, the Filipinos are rejecting the  one this country offers."  It is .the veriest nonsense to_ speak  of the ' government of Kruger- as a  republic. It is a despotic oligarchy,  which refuses the common rights of  man to the people who have created  its wealth and enabled it to arm to  the teeth "to crush out the very semblance of liberty. - '-  This same Dr. Talmage we have  seen deliberately insult the British  flag on his own church at a religious  service on Memorial day. Dr. Peeke,  a native Hollander, in Chicago, declares that "The Boers want freedom, the British wanted gold and  diamonds. The Boer government  stood. for God, the British government for gold. It was a conflict undertaken' by the Boers for conscience  and right, and by the'Briton, to rob  him of his land and his liberty. The  free American citizen should see but  one end by the triumph of civilization with God' in it, and .the godless power ot the- British government  forever broken."  To the valiant doptor the Rev.H.  A. Reed replies in the Christian Up-  look: .    . - '  "It seems to me that the Boer is  a wily liar, a bigot and a brute.  During the civil war the onlyabsolute-  ly safe place for the negro was under  that hated British flag. The Boer  was about the last fellow to abandon  slavery���������and then only at the compulsion of the British���������even as his  forefathers were the first to sell  slaves to British* colonists, which  they.did in Jamestown in 1619."  "It Is a-significant fact that of all  the defenders of' Great Britain's  policy In "relation to her dependencies, there are none, more enthusiastically 'commendatory than the foreign missionaries from the churches  of, America."

A Circular Letter Issued  by the Pre-  ���������   sklent-of  the-Reglna Liberal  Association.  To the* Liberal and Independent Electors of the Regina district:  Gentlemen���������You are probably aware  that recently delegates from Regina  have been visiting the adjacent districts for the purpose of forming political associations. In one or two instances associations' have been formed, and in many others the electors  took exception to having their hands  forced in this way at the present moment. The delegates sent out were  in most Instances composed of gentlemen who had left the Reglna and  District* Liberal Association, because  they wished the ideas of two or three  political bosses to take precedence  over the opinion of the majority of  the  members of   the association.  The object of their attempts at organisation is, if possible to egt the  electors committed to sending delegates to a convention to be held at  Reglna or Moose Jaw shortly to bring  out a candidate; in other words one  that will support party in preference  to the actual requirements of" the  settlers in  this  district.  It is 'stated in the public press and  given credence to by hundreds of the  electors that the gentleman in the  government from the west, who has  control of our affairs, was placed in  his position by the influence of the  Canadian Pacific railway. Be this  true or not, we do know that when  the charter was given to that railway  oompany they were - to pay taxes on  their land in 20 years, and so far the  gentleman has taken no steps to see  that the bargain will be carried out.  Settlers are improving the districts  and increasing the price of railway  lands two or three dollars per acre,  and it is left to independent members  of - parliament at Ottawa to get the  settlers justice in railway and elevator legislation.  It is a crying shame that the government party at Regina and other  places in. the district are committed  to a system of politics, which, if it  could be successfully carried out,  would completely wipe out from parliament men like Messrs. Oliver, Richardson and Douglas.  Now, with regard to conventions,  would it not be well for the electors  In this district to watt until parliament adjourns and see what beneflcal  legislation the Independent members  ore able to get llir-.ugh, and after  seeding is over, lei uh hold a representative meeting of the electors at  some central point: and try and get  men like Richardson and Oliver to lay  their  views  before    us,   and    In     re-  Mr.  Jyner  came  In   late.

How the nopea Are Made ������n* n������w  They Are Grooined���������Tlic Three General Methods In Vae In Throwlng*.  Tbe Lasso as a Weapon.  The lasso is a creation ot a certain environment and need. Its place Ib on the  broad prairies and grazing lands, and Its  chief utility lies In the stock business.  It Is almost useless In a wooded country  by reason of the obstructions afforded by  branches and bushes. Tho finest lassos  are of rawhide, cut into thin Btrips, and  braided, six ply, into a rope of from  throo-ctglitlis to one-half inch In diameter. They are quite expensive, a good 40  foot rope costing about $7. On this account, of late years, hard twisted grass  rope li uaed, but the rawhide rope Is the  best In a -wind, as It is heavier, and when  filled with oil it is not affected by wet  weather. A braided rope also has less  tendency to kink than a twixted ropo.  Cowboys havo a mlxturo of lard and  beeswax with which they dress their  hemp or linen ropes to keep out dampness and also to prevent them from getting too dry. The most celebrated of the  genuine "rlattas" arc mado In Chicago,  which produces an article much superior  to the tougher ones turned out In Mexico.  A lasso is about 40 feet long, seldom  exceeding 50 feet, and out of that must  be deducted the amount taken tn making  the noose and the part which Is retained  in tho hand. Thus It Is seen that the average cast Is about 25 or 80 feet, and the  "roper" who can throw anywhero near  SO feet with accuracy Is a rarity. In  California they sometimes tine a rope aa  long as 05 feet, but thoro they seem to  have a habit of throwing an enormously  large loop, much larger than Is really necessary. In actual work, however, It will  bo found that a man's hand Is not large  enough properly to hold much more than  40 feet of rope when coiled ready to  throw. _  There are "three general methods of  throwing, with many minor variations of  individual habit. The ropo is hold In  pmctically the same way In every case.  First Is the plain, straight cast, noose  swinging around above the head from  right to left by n rotating wrist movement. Some "ropers" throw a small  loop, hard and fast, almost on a level;  others n larger, lazier kind, which nevertheless "arrives." For myself, I rather  favor the small loop thrown hard, as It  seems the best all around style, most effective against the wind or other adverse conditions.  The aim ia somewhat to thc right of  the object to be roped���������say V/i feet on a  2o foot throw���������the exact instant of release being governed by weight of rop������L  wind, veliAity of swing, etc. Judgment  comes Instinctively with practice. The  rest of the rope is held colled In the other  hand and released as fast as desired/two  or three coils being retained.  To "snub" the rope (wind it about the  pommel after casting) in the Instant of  time allowed Is a trick* quite as difficult  as throwing properly. The Mexicans,  with their large diameter .pommels," have  to take only one turn; the American pommels, being smaller, require two. The  pommel often smokes from the friction  created and is frequently deeply grooved  and almost burned by tho ropo. The important, part played by the trained cow  pony is' obvious. He is taught to settle  hack on his haunches the Instant the rope  begins to .tighten and In many other way*  materially to assist his master.  -  The second method of throwing Is exactly the reverse���������1. e., the noose Is swung  from thc left to right above" the head before release. This Is'called-the "California throw" and possibly gives a little  greater range. At any rate, one or two  of the longest-throwers I know use.it,  and I find it so myself. It may be only  a personal result. Any good "roper" can  throw cither way.  .The third cast Is the "corral drag,"  which, as Its name Implies, Is for use  afoot and in confined quarters. ' It consists In. trailing out the loop on tha  ground behind one and. snapping It forward by an underhand motion. ������  The lasso's greatest effectiveness as a  weapon Is when the wielder Is mounted.  When both adversaries are afoot,' Its value is very slight. With cattle or horses  It. Is an entirely different thing. The  whole essence of the matter is to tighten  the noose around an opponent with a jerk  sufficient to dismount him or take him  off his feet. To that end you may ride  past him swiftly or, If pursuing him, atop  your own horse suddenly. Or, If he Is  stationary and you.cannot ride past him,  you can wheel your own horse and retire  after a .successful cast. In 'lassoing a  man. If done skillfully, the instant of  time is too brief for him either to throw  off the tightening noose or cut It. And it  is one of tue most deceptive things to attempt to dodge.  ' It is-possible to control the noose of a  lasso by tho remainder of the rope, but  it-l������-a^de=terlty^which-few_acquire���������In.  .years. -The finest roper I know, Vicente  Oropesa, champion of old Mexico, can do*,  this to perfection, and his. performance  Is one of the ablest things in that interesting exposition* of plain smanshlp. ��������� Oropesa Is an enthusiast. One of the Mexicans once told me that one night the  champion dreamed of a new cast and at  once got up and went out scantily clad,  and in half an hour had mastered ltv  In spinning tho ropo I have been accused of sticking or securing the ���������honda"  or' slip noose from sliding, but in reality  It Is -perfectly free to move, along the  rope.. In fact, I can readily start spinning a noose two feet in diameter and increase It steadily to eight or ten test;  across.  There are several uses which the lasso  could be put to, It seems to me, even In  quite densely populated districts. In  capable bauds it weuld afford nn excel:  lent means of stopping the many street  runaways, and It also could almost always be utilized where a sltater broke  through the ice. . And as a regulator of  fast bicycling it would easily stand unrivaled, for no scorcher would v daro to  ride past a guardian of the peace equipped with the persuasive lariat.���������Howard  Reynolds In Wide World Magazine.
