There was considerable partying,  hill on Monday morning, thc 10th,  wo  ri'ii:hod an agreement (including  Ml'.  Kidd, of Richmond), which practically  ensured ils  passage:   Providing that  such  an   agreement   had   buun  made  wilh an ordinary man,  aud also  provided" no   change   was   mado   in  tho  Nanaimo seats.    The bill  laid  before  the house by message from His Honor  contained   changes   in   the - Nanaimo  -flits.    When   the   second   agreement  was readied belweuii Mi*.   Marl in  ami  invsoH'oii Wednesday morning, it was  -Imulatod that if the Alexandra   mine  was lel'l in South Nanaimo,Mr. Martin  would   support  tin-  bill.

A LIBERAL "EDITOR  Would Sooner See the Conservatives in\ .  Power Than Joe Martin,  The   Greenwood    Daily     Times   is'  staunchly Liberal in   ils Federal  politics, and was  a  supporter  of  the late'  Semlin government.   Our readers will  probably be able to gel at least a suggestion of its opinion of Mr,  Martin*  from    the    following:   '��������� IJis   record-  shows that he can lie loyal' to neither'  friend or foe ; that as a supporter he'  is  a   constant   intriguer,   and   as   an'  opponent is capable of tlie .most  inexcusable treachery.    Speaking  for  the'  (7)   To   assume   respectable Liberals, wo say that they  '   "      do not want   him   and   would   never'  follow him from   choice;  and, if  they  would not   follow   him   from   ihoice,*  much less will they ever allow him   to *  fasten himself upon them  and constitute    himself   their   leader.

A  THE  FREE PRESS  IS SHOCKED*  The Manitol* Free Press has evidently abandoned  tho study of con  etituiional law and is now   devoting  its   space   time   to    questioning    the  legality...' o:     marriages     syiemnizeu  under "the Macdonald administration.  It.   pub.i-hf,-   a    apeciiueu     marriage  liceus-  whereby John Cox is permit-  fed "to enter  into  the  holy  bonds of  matrimony   with  Mary   box,   the   license being signed by John A.Davidson, miui-ter of agriculture ana immigration.    The  whole  trouble ia or  course  due to the   fact    that    Hugh  John   Macdonald    has     been   chosen  premier of the province of Manitoba.  __.o  Fr_B   Press  had    accused   Hugh  John of almost every    crime known  to   the  law,   but  It  never heretofore  went so far a.3 to accuse him of violating  the holy  boud    of matrimony.  The way in wnieft  the  premier work  ed bis  aelarious    scheme    was    this.  All   marriage   licenses   are   required  to be executed "under    the hand  of  the   minister  or  acting  minister    of  agriculture   and   Immigration."     Tlie  .Free, Press has  been'   advisod  by    a  legal   practitioner,   whose     name    is  discreetly withheld,    that   inasmuch  as  Mr. Davidson  wa_,  uui    i-iipointed  "to  bo   minister   of  agriculture"   but  merely 'to act as minister of agriculture" and  therefore  there ia no minister of agiiculture and  consequently  all  marriago  licenses  signed  by  Mr.  Davidson   are of no effect,    so    that  hundreds ot people who thought they  were   being    married     by  clergymen  having authority to perform the ceremony   are  not  really .married   at  all.  To the average lay ���������mind, if. would  appear   that   njarijaoLo   I'orforiiied by  persons    basing hy j__v,- authority to  perform   marriages    are    binding on  the I'i'.i.!.--, nof-ithsuiii.i.jig- the view-  taken by  the  legal  practitioner who  advised the Free    Press.     Moreover  very little value is attached to legal  advice which  is not charged'  for.and  there  is  nothing to show    that    thc  I_gal practitioner received any fee in  cash cr kind for his advice.    In    the  next   place,   the only person   in    tne  province  who  seems    to  be  worried  .about the matter is thc editor of the  regular hurrican of lead went screaming at the devoted wolf;  he dared to  crosa   the   fire   zouo   (oh,   for   a few-  Boers)   and   trotted,    gently    up     tbe  slope,   occasionally   looking  over   his  shoulder  at  his   heriditary   foes   and  wondered      If   they   were    practising  tor Bisley.    Not  a  hair   of    his  fine  coat fell to  the  ground.      The  noble,  red  man  of the West,  disgusted with  such  unreasonable  brutes that refused to be shot and remain  shot in a  decent orthodox way, packed up thei  tenia and  quietly    trekked  for  their  reserve.    Anoher   breathing  spell   fo  the  wolf family  but  not  so  for  the  settlers'    6tock.      "Run    Maf.''    was  shouted  at   him   by   the  wife . of   hi  bosom and Mac. Jumped for dear lit'.  to  the   end   of  the   house,  only    to'  find   that   Mr.   Wolf   had     taken     a  generous  sample  out  of  a promising  hand  fed  calf,  the pride of tho sal  Mrs.  Mac.   To" ay  the    wolves '��������� wer  remembered  in the oveniiiK devotions  of the family goes without saying.  Tired and    weary    the   settlers    c  Grand   Valley    settled    down    to   the  round  up  and  compared   notes  as   to  who   had   lost   most    heavily  by   the  timber vermin.    And so haying time  approached   and   with  .it���������������������������fresh   visits  from   Mi*. ..Wolf.     T.   D. ���������Mackay,     a  canny Scot with a gri-/v.!eil hoard and  a   far away look   in     his    .keen' blue  eyes,  had1 those samo eyes gladdened  by tho nsar approach, of thr; big woif  who followed .his wagon to and: from  the   hay   field. '  He  handed  tho  rein-  to  his son with    tlio    brief'   words,  "drive   on."    Mac    slipped    off    the  wagon and into clump of bushes close  by. the roadside.    Thu wolf b hi don by  a  turn  in   the  road, did   not    sec. the  move,   and   calmly ������������������ trotted  tin   to  hia  doom.    Opposite .tlio  muzzle  of    tlie  shot gun he stopped, lo'jkinr; intently,  ahead   as   if   he  mlss'-d   someone  out  of the wagon.    That settled It.    Mac.  was 'cool   as  a  cucumber    and   duly  planted  a  charge of  buckshot  In'bis  wolfship's carcase.    With  a bound he  was off and ran for about   100 yards,  look his last look.on earthy and sky  and the big wolf,  the scourge of  the  valley, was no more.  Some   time   previous    to   tl_is     the  same Mac. had sat up  all  night  and  got a charge of lead  into Mrs.  Wolf  Rejoicing      Pon't  mention   It!  A correspondent asks mo to explain  the torms "brigadier gonoral," "major  gonoral," "lieutenant general" and bo  on,  which he tells he  finds confuse  a good many people, says a writer in  tho London News:  The name brigadier gonoral depends on  tho organization which is called a brigade.   A  brigadier   general   commands   a  brigade,   which   consists    of  a  certain  number of battalions.    In almost all  foreign armies two or three, usually  throe,   battailous    form  a   regiment,  and   of  those  about    two regiments  form a brigade.    With    us thu term  "a   regiment"   is used   for    two    or  moro hattlions of which tho ollieers  aro  all  placed  on  tho  samo  list -o_  seniority for promotion,aud  throughout which the promotion of the noncommissioned officers'run in a single  list.    It does not at all  follow,,   in  fact it is very raroly the case, that  in our army two battalions of    the  samo rogiment are  serving  side  by  side  with  ono  another.      Normally,  under our system, with a two-battalion regiment, ono of the battalions is  at homo and the other abroad,   the  homo  regiment serving   as a feeder  for tho battalion  which is in India  or the colonies.   The home battalion.  Is in fact, the great training school  for* the   recruits  beyond    the  depot  stage,   and   the  battalion    abroad   is  kept up to its full war strength; This  arrangement  is  often   disturbed    by  both   battalions   going   abroad.       Of  lato we have been creating regiments  of which we always had a tow,    of  four battalions, but even so the battalion    has no    necessary   connexion  with the' regiment for the purpose of  organization   in   the   field.   With   us,  usually, the I brigades  aro , made up  of   battalions   of    several    different  regiments,  and  the  organization  for  fightingin the battalion unit is that  of the brigade.  Aa four battalions together form a  brigade, and each of the battalion's  is commanded by a Ueutenant-colonel  very often a full colonel in the army  is appointed to tho command of the  brigade, and he" is given the position  of: general of the brigade' without his  permanent army rank being affected  thereby, and still being a colonel In  the army-he is by virtue of his office  as commander of th-brigade, :���������; called  a brigadier general. Thus he i3 in  his army ��������� rank a'full colonel, but  in his function in connexion'with the  organization of the army In the field  the. lowest grade of general���������a brigadier. On the other hand a major  general is a permanent rank in the  army, to which full colonels were  appointed either by seniority or selection, and the lieutenant general is  tho rank next senior to that of the  major general, whllo a full general is  senior  to  both   of  them.  In our actual distribution of officers almost all" tho:-districts into  wliich tho country is divided are  assigned according to their importance to the command of major generals, lieutenant generals or full generals. All tlio Braaller districts are  commanded by major generals, and  a fow, like Aldcrshot and Scotland,  by full generals in the army. As a  rule, a command In which a full general Is. like Aldcrshot, is one:in which  there are several other; general offi-  cors under him of different ranks.  There is. however, no fixed rule" as  regards the holding of positions by  officers of different ranks, and whereas normally the field brigade commands would bo held either by major  generals or by colonels with the special ranVf of brigadiers, and divisions,  which consist of two brigades each,  would be commanded by lieutenant  Generals, it not infrequently happens  that a major general is appointed to  the, command of a division, as for  instance, was the ens-?, with Sir William Gntacre in the present campaign.  A field marshal is an exceptional  rank conferred for distinguished services in high command in the field  -or���������i _���������conr.e_ior__-_il]_.rovai__30Si tion,  and it confers the privileg- that���������  whereas in the case of all other  ranks in the army there is an age  clatis, which detenn'tt-s* that  officer shall not continue in  army if he has at  four     longr,  months,  Our  bravo  battalions lay  Entrenched at Ladysmith,  and hold  The Burgher's host at bay.  And day by day,  and week by week,  Soon as the morning broke,  The thunder of a hundred guns,  The mountain echoes woke.  Creusot  and   Maxlm-Nordenfeldt,  Belched     forth    their      tongues     ���������(  flame,  Incessant  on   the  British   camp.  The  deadly  shrapnel  came.  And  day    by    day,  from    morn  night,  Our men shot true and well,  Answering.the Burghers shot for shot,  Sending them shell for shell,  Fighting aa once thoir fathers fought  On the field ot Waterloo,  Showing   the    watching    world    once  more  What British  pluck can do.  How they    cheered when on������   bright  morning  They heard a roar of guns  Down on the Kiver Tugela  Proclaim that Buller comes.  But  did   their courage falter?  Thoir: brave  endeavors slack?  When   Buller  hellographed  to White:  "Our force is driven back."  Swift camo  tho answering flashes,  "We're sate  and  sitting tight,"  "We've  got   our  backs    against    the  wall.  Tho troops are full of fight."  And through the weeks that followed  While  Buller felt his way.  White and his comrade Atkln, held  The Burghers' host at bay.  Eagerly gazing southward.  And  listening  to  the guns,  Watching      the       bursting       lyddite-hells  They   told   that  Buller  cornea.  Then came one morn a messafo  That filled us with dismay,  "The enemy attack in force,"  "Hard pressed," the flashes say.  Then  how  anxiously  we waited.  For what the day would bring.  Would a tale of a great disaster,  To the bounds of the Empire ring?  No!  "driven back at every point."  'TIs the heliograph speaks again.  You should  have    heard the    mlghtjr  shout  From  the throats of Buller's men.  The  papers   have  told   the story  How our soldiers fought and fell,  Charging across the lead swept plain.  While    the    hill  tops    smoked    with  shell.  How driven back, they charged again  Until the Burghers fled.  Leaving the* rocky kopjes strewn  With  the Boer and British  dead,  But  who  can    describe    the    closing  scene  What  tongue the tale can,tell,  The joy of the worn out. garrison,  When oh the breezes swell,  Faintly at  first,  then -louder,  They hear, a well known  strain,  And marching to the Highland Pipes  The "Campbells come"- again.  And the morning sun gleamed brightly.  On  bayonet  and  on gun.  As filing down the southern slopes  The  troops  of Buller come.  They  come!      The siege, is ended.

But what method do you  propose for getting il and what i eason  is theue to suppose Unit the country  would not get a good business government out of a contest on straight party  lilies as roiidily as-aTler one conducted  on any other plan.
