These nre broad features in the  management of the country about  whicli theie. can he no mistake aiul in  each one we find Ihe Laurier administration has not/only failed to fulfil its  promises but lias done those things for  which it condeiniiied the administrations, to wliich it succeeded.  The country is paying 121 million  dollars a year more in taxes than it  ever paid before, the debt is growing,  and corporations and trusts have extended their bounds and strengthened  their clutch.  If the country is prosperous, it is in  spite  of   what   the   government   has  done;.it   is   prosperous .because   Providence has .sent  goo.l-.crops.^and tlie.  prices for farm produce have  tiseti   in  Europe. *  The true Liberal is not* to  be   fooled  by names or party cries.

Tho ascent of  Mount   Slepliau.   thn  giant of   llie.   Rockies,   was   recently  inn do by a Winnipeg gentlemen,   who  wns accompanied by a couple of Swiss  guides   which   the   Canadian   Pacitie  Railway   company   hns   stationed   nl  several points along the  Iini!. through  the iiioimliiiiis.     The height Of'.Mount  Stephen is 8,000 feet   about   the   rail-  j way track.  Tliey started at..:!._ in  the   morning  and reached the   summit   12:30.     The  journey is hny.ardous enough lo   he interesting to lhe most daring, and  toilsome   enough   to   prevent   the  gie-U  majority nf tourists   from accomplish-  ingit..      In   places  the   porpondic.uh r  ascent is only  possible   by   means   of  ropes.      On the summit the Winnipeg  climber attached hi.s hankerchief  to a  pole whicli was already there,   having  lieen put in position some four or   rive  years ago by an Englishman, who,   so  far   as   known,   was   the Ilrst man lo  ascend Mount Stephen.      It  took him  three days to go and return, of course,  with oul a guide.     While, at the summit he attached a Union Jack   to   the  polo.    Last year Mr. Ferrier, from the  Mount Stephen house, ascended lo'lhe  summitaiid lu ought back with him   a  shred, all that was left of   the    Union  Jack.     So   fur as is known,  those are  the only people   who   had   previously  reached    Ihu   summit..      He  and   his  party   left the summit at 2 p, m..   and  reached   the   Mount    Stephen   house  about 7.      The   day after   he left   the  house, an American gentleman-aud his  sister, with two guides were goinir   to  endeavor lo reach lhe summit.    It was  a great feat for a  lady   to   undertake,  but   she   accomplished it successfully.  They had a beautiful   day.' aiid   took  several   views.     The" lady   stood the  trial txceedingly   well, and   certainly  performed a great feat.

Their    altitude    has  compelled    their   sober   -minded   colleagues  to vote with the  government  time and again on issues growing out  of  the war,  and  the  effect of such a  state ui' affairs Is demoralizing in the  extreme.      As  the war has  overshadowed  ali  other    nucstlons,  even    the  good  record   in    domestic    legislation  made   by   the     government,   the    war  issue  will  naturally be    the most prominent in Uie campaign, and probably  most   effective   in   deciding   how   tlio  musses will vote.     Tl" thc latter theory  is-  borne  out  the  outcome  can  hardly  be  other  than  thn  extension  for another live years of the Liberals wandering   in   the   desert    of   opposition,  and  tliey have deserved It.

MEN'S SHIRT WAISTS  Under the title "Shirt waists for  men." a contemporay reasons om the  ���������wisdom of man adopting for summer  wear the garment which, .sometimes  known under the above, has been,  steadily growirig in popularity, as its  fair wearers have been growing comfortably cool.  The writer says:     "A  movement for the adoption of thc shirt  waist as an article of male* attire has  been  started   in   the ���������*, United  States."  The   garment   in    question   has  boen  sold  for  many  years  in   all  parts  of  the  States,    hundreds    of    thousands  being worn regularly.    Should a caller I  ai  any   dry   goods    or    departmental I  store in any city in the States ask tor  blouses he would first be requested to'  state whether he   wished    a man's or  lady's garment.      For ladies'  wear  Ii  is  also known  as  a shirt waist,   but  the name* blouse Is more generally applied.     In men's wear this garment is  also called a jacket, but the former is  generally used.      Now, as  to tho  difference  in color,   there  is    sometimes  little and often none.     In men's shin  waists   or      blouses      navy   or  ultramarine blue, predominates, a sky blue  and  white  check  following as  a close  second, while for Indoor wear a white,  in twill (.not pique) or plain weave, is  preferable.  As ro make, the male garment does  not come under the decree of fashion  as regular as its varying sister.

Some  funny deductions might be drawn  from   them.  Our Mounted Men's Experience  Before wo wore attacked , the  Boers attacked the camp on thc railway .about a mile and a half to the  south of us. In this camp, besides  the two companies of the Shrop-  shiies. were 50 men of our ,* own  mounted rifles. They were all in  D squadron and were under the com  manil (of Captain  only other officer  lnglis,  the camp of the Slu*op3hlres we pick-*  ed     up     o\ir    unfortunate   Canadian  comrades.    Lieutenant lnglis, I found  on his back on a stretcher, enjoying  a cigarette, .-'smiling and  as  "game"  as could be,  his only  regret    being  that he "couldn't stand up." He was  severely hurt I found, but not in any  way   dangerously;     and  '.the   doctor  assured   me   that  no    bones    were  broken and he would  suffer no permanent injury from his; wound. They  were all 'able to walk  to  the train,  though .they had had,  in one case at  least,   as    many    as    three    bullets  through them.   It was the old story���������  the humane Mauser does its work in  a   courteous   and   gentlemanly   manor,     and   these   comrades    of   ours,  despite oven four or six bullet holes,  will soon be as fit and as sound as  ever they were.  It was the tightest place that any  of our mounted riflemen had yet been  in, a.id they got out of it���������some of  them at any rate���������because, as the  officer in C'j-.nninr.d of the Shropshire camp said to me: "Those  Canadian beggar-- don't l.-now what  fear Is."  NARROW   GAGE  The Lewiston Journal "reports a collision down in the State ot Maine, in  which no one was injured.  A ceitain old man who does handsome work with the fiddle at country  dances is "great on time," but unless  he is argued with he will play "The  Girl I Loft Behind Me" from S o'clock  till 12, for every dance except the Virginia reel.  Some of the old dancers were on the  floor not long ago, and between  dances one of them wont up to the  fiddler, who sat rubbing the rosin on  his bow.  "Uncle," aid the dancer, "all the  folks on the floor want you lo play  old "Speed the Plow" for the next  dance.   Can't you give It to us "  Tho old man tucked his rosin into  his vest pocket.  "I sh'd like to 'commodate ye fust-  rate," he said, "but the's sulhln' sing'-  lar 'bout that tune of 'Speed the  Plow.'

These are still  extant. Neither are    the materials  of which men's blouses are made, of  as varied weaves. Silk, satin, chal-  lie, Scotch -zephyr, or dimity have not  yet appeared nor fancy butrons or  blouse sets in jewellery with which to  heighten the attractive effect. But  neither has man been wearing feathers, birds, flowers or foliage- ln his  hat. eThe cloths preferred f->r men's  blouses are, blue denim, check drilling  "or gingham, brown duck, plain white  drilling and plain or twill cotton. The  latter arc- preferred by paper hangers,  plasterers and butchers. A sensible-  point in the men's waist is seen in the  entire absence of tight fitting, the garment usually measuring the same at  the several fastenings. It is termed  a "box cut." The sleeves ar..- not  "mutton chop," but of the old "cedar  post" pattern. The shirt waist or  blouse, for men has been loni? in the.-  field, if not long ln make, and bids  fair to cover -the same- ground while  the laborer continues "worthy of his  Hire."  At break of day, as was their custom, a Cossack post, consisting of a  party of 12 men under Lieutenant  lnglis, left .the camp lo take up a  position, on a sort ot double-headed  kopje about a mile away from the  camp. lnglis had already posted  somo iof his -men on one of the  summits of this kopje.and was about  to take the rest to the other summit  when, to his horror, he saw that it  was already in possession of a large  party of the enemy, who immediately put their horses into a gallop  witli the evident intention of cut-  tng off the Canadian rooinek's from  their camp- There was nothing, of  course, to he done by our men but  to get back to the shelter of their  camp as  quickly as possible.  This tliey at once proceeded to  do���������hastily, of course, hut in perfect  order and without the least 'display  of panic. And yet. never were men  in a more critical or more trying position. The iBoers were���������as they  always are���������well 'mounted, on horses  that could easily outstrip the poor,  tired out beasts that our men could  scarcely urge to a canter. Escape  seemed hardy possible; but never a  thought of surrender entered the  minds of our men as they rode steadily towards the camp, every now and  Llioit turning to reply to the fire of  the  pursuing Boers.  II was of course a foregone conclusion that some would never again  reach camp alive. It was only a desperate chance that few might escape  or whose luck to fall and  whose to remain unscatthed wore  the chances that soldiers must take  in the lottery of war. Meanwhile,  till did their best to .have at least a  life for a- life of the enemy .  Before tliis desperate race for life  was 'over many a Boer bullet had  found our men.

Sept. 1st at ChiHiv-nu-l:.   *  The opposition to anti-mongolian  legislation at Ottawa derives its  trength from several souices. There  sin the lirst. place a sentiuieiilnl objection in Eastern Canada, largely  fostered by the. churches, fo exclusion  .if these people. They call legislation  to that ell'ect simply "damnable" and  class the Ii. C. iiieinhurs, who support  it wilh Boers and Boxers. Secondly  there is a section of K. C. employers  of labor, who are Irenuent visitors to  Olluwa, whose interests are hound up  with cheap labor. Tliey tell the people  at Otlawa that llritish Columbia cannot develope her resources without  cheap labor and their decimation  tout-lies the spot in every member, and  they are many, who are in any way  interested in 11. 0. mines. Then there  is the opposition of the C.P.R., who  not only require the labor of the  Mongolian importations, but who, it  is stated, would lose $'"00,000 per  nullum derived from transporting  Chinese to Vancouver, if they were  altogether excluded from the province.  Lastly there are the utterances of  clergymen such as Bishop Pen-in and  Rev. Mr, Wii Chester, whose zen1 fo  what they consider fair play lo the  Chinese, largely outruns their consideration for working men of their  own blood. Their words, as is only  natural weigh largely with people in  the East, whose only knowledge of  the matter is entirely theoretical,  while the arguments of our B. C.  members like Col. Prior and Rev. Mr.  Maxwell are looked upon as mere  gassing to catch the labor vote in this  province.  ys  Name  on  Every  Piece  A Fresh Supply Just to  Hand in i-2lb. and lib.  Boxes.

While our members at Ottawa are  Ihiisstriiggling against a combination  of sentiment and selfishness, the pro-  vincialgoveriuiient at Victoria through  Mr. Turner declares a policy of preventing the employment of Chinese  throughout the province, wherever  they are not necessary. This is rather  vague, but Mr. Turner himself apparently places sawmills and canneries  in his mental schedule of places where  they are ' necessary. ln the meanwhile Mr Tatlow, a supporter of the  government, has still before the house,  dragging its slow debate along, a  motion which practically amounts to  a vote of censure on the Laurier  government, for not, increasing the  head tax on Chinese to $o(K). If we  cannot can our salmon aud saw our  timber without Chinese, what, sense is  there in asking the Ottawa authorities to exclude them from Canada, or  bow with such divided counsels right  in our own legislature can w-j expect  any proposition of our own ou the  mutter to carry any weight with the  Dominion government at all,  fr *  * "A LOCAL INDUSTRV     *  .OF PUBLIC BENEFI  THE REVELSTOKE  STEAM LAUNDRY..
