One would think this to  be a sufficiently self evident proposition, but even as in Bishop Butler's  age, so in this, the delusion quite  obviously prevails that if you only say  ���������it is'nt' often enough, then that which  is, actually is not. This curious mental  condition is very observable in the Continental and American press opposed  to the Empire. ,It was very prevalent  in Spain at tbo period of the late -war  and Oom Paul developed it to a most  amazing degree: And now Air Tarte  is suffering from a bad attack. His  approaching retirement from oflice  will however provide a much needed  rest cure for his affliction..  S������������������S������3XiS^^  An excellent   series   of   articles   on  government   ownership   of     railways  from the pen of It. L. Richardson, M.P:  for'Lisgurand editor of the Winnipeg  Tribune, is now running in   lhe   Canadian magazine, a journal which every  Canadian-should make a special   point  of supporting.     Government    ownership of rail ways falls under two   head.-  ���������Government construction  and  Government operation.    It  is quite plain  from   the   iiguies     quoted     by     Mr  Richardson that so far as  the  Hist   s  concerned Government ownership lias  already been to all intents and purpuxs  adopted   in   Canada.     The   principal  difficulty about, countructing  railways  is the providing money to pay for  the  work and this Canada   has   in  several  instances done with lavish hand,  plying through the nose, living  suiisidie.-  in money and land and-bonding, privi--  leges on.the credit   of   the-   Doininion-  S'.iflicient to build the roads ' hns favored over and over again.    Wliy  people  who see no difficulty   iu   the   country  thus pavim; for railroads   sboii'd   find  sciuplis   about   the  country   o >'nii g  them is diflicnlty'o   utnler-Uaud.      In  most transactions in public or   private  business   ownership     is'    the     usual  siquence to  payment.      Why   should  the only exception be in   the   case   of  ra'.lw.ays? Why should Canada pay fin  their construction and llu n hat d them  to private parties to   own   and   "Mick  there (,.'t no small   advantage''?      We  have built'these r.iilroad-=.

Thi.s is the'nere*. Mlv for  imposing a duty on the products of  lead mines. Everybody in Kootenay  seems to be agreed that this is a desirable measure. It is advocated by the  Liberal candidal e for Yale;Caribon as  well as by his Conservative opponent.  But which party does common sense  indicate as thn one most likely to carry  out this proposition into legislation.  The liberal party, which during its  term of office has has steadily lefused  to entertain this idea or protection for  our silver-lead mines at all aiid which  stills avows its hostility to protection  of Canadian industries in theory or the  Conservatives, into whose .general  policy of protection this particular  measure of protection would Ht quite  naturally. This is the point for Kootenay voters, whose prosperity depends  so materially upon (he development of  tliere silver-lead mines, to seriously  consider.

General Merchants  Revelstoke, B.O  BERESFORD BRILLIANT TACTICS*  Left All  Former   Marching Records in   Discards     the     Old    Stick-in-the-Mud  the Shade ,_  Private G. Wallace of the first Canadian contingent and formerly a  lesident here has sent, a letter to Capt.  Henderson of Vancouver, which has  been reproduced in the News-Ad ver-  liser. The. letter is dated from taste  F.ibriekers (a station on the Delagoa  Bay Line, 10 miles east of Pretoria) on  September 1st. It, contains a graphic  description of lhu chii'-e after the Boer  Commander, Dewet, which for haul  inarching caused all past matching  feats accomplished during the campaign lo be looked upon as child's play.  Often the regiment was moving night  and day, aud at other times coveied  20 miles before breakl'ust. Speaking  of the camp from which he was  writing, Piivate Wallace described it  as the pleasiintest they had struck in  the whole campaign; it was close to a  plantation of gum-trees with a stieain  of clear water mnuing close by, the  latter widening out into a fine bathing  pool in which the. men took a daily  dip. The British Columbia boys had  organized a "Tadpole Club" and were  having "no end of fun." In closing  the letter, the writer remarks that  they expected to get orders for home  shortly and after a year's campaigning  he, for one, would be quite content lo  settle down to a quiet life.  PLEDGES REDEEMED  A .Short and Easy Method of Changing from Protection to Tariff for Revenue Only. i  Since the demise of Grip Canada has  had to weary along without a comic  paper. Sir Richard Cart wi ight's eagle  eye has noted this defect in the  periodical literature of the country  and the lesult is the publication of a  facetious little brochure entitled  "Pledges Redeemed" with which in  his abounding beneficence he is furnishing tier Majesty's lieges throughout the bounds of lhis Dominion- free,  gratis and for nothing. At first sight  Sir Richard's production may scarcely  appear to answer the object of its  publication. It is only on a closer  scrutiny that the dry and subtle  humor lurking in its pages is revealed.  T.-iKe for instance the Tariff Pledge,  that the protective principle being  unsound, corrupting to the manufact-,  urers and iiijiiiious to the trade of the  country, "The tariff . should be  reduced to the needs of honest economical and efficient government.'  These last woids are a delightful  specimen of Sir Richard's sly wit. One  can almost hear the chuckle witli  which he copied out this !ine_of high  sounding rhetoric from the Liberal  platform .of '03 under the-bead of  Pledges Redeemed. In plain English  then the. Liheial party pledged themselves lo base their customs tariff not  on the principle of protection but on  the requirements of lhe revenue only.  Sir R'u hard humorously claims lhat  this pledge has been redeemed. But  how? Thisiswheie the joke conies  in. Under the Conservative* regime  an average tariff of 20 per cent, was  considered to be and frankly willed  protection. Sir Richard "and*' his,  friends .made a sweeping change.  They retained the same averhge tariff  of 20 per-eent.,***_buU lhey_altercd__the_  name entirelyand c.illcd'i_t*"if taiitf for  revenue only. ��������� NowjfyJiM-haps it is  beginning to dawnpfi you that Sir  Richard is indeed a huinoribt of no  mean order. But this one specimen  by no means exhausts the wide vein  of his wit disclosed in "Pledges  Redeemed" and the Herald hopes to  relurn to this'Attractive subject in a  future issue. At the same time one  joke has. in closing the leaves of our  copy of Sir Richard's charming -little  work, caught our eyes and we cannot  let this ton brief review close without  noticing it. It is Ihe last witticism in  the pamphlet, it is a gem, the creutn  .if the whole collection. It is entitled  "Prohibition Plebiscite" and leads,  "A Dominion Plebiscite was taken and  this pledge therefore kept to the  letter." "You see," says Sir  Richard in effect, "the-se poor gulls of  temperance cranks. We got them to  vote for us by promising a plebiscite.  They have their plebiscite and thc  pledge has thcrefoie been hept to llie  letter." The saicasm is iu our opinion  pei haps slightly too bitter but it give**-  one a gie.it insight into t he Stores of  sardonic humor, whicli Sir Richard  has for the last four years suppressed  iu the dignified reticence ot public  oflice hut. which now apparently flash  Toi Ih wilh all the more terrible and  ciiltiiigeffectfromlh.it very repression.  ft������^Aft������J������*^*5������jr*-������ifl*������*?*^>^.W^   *^.*^*������*>W>**P**^>.fcftfr>?^  Meth ods and Fights to Win.  A dispatch to the New York Journal'  from London says*  Lord Charles Bei-esfoid has amazed'  the world by the brilliant strategy by'  which he won th'e bham battle in the'  recent iiianoeiivers of the British fleet'  in thn Mediterranean. -. His tactics'  have been pronounced the cleverest in  naval annals. The fleet was divided  into two parts, Beresford in command  of one and Admit al Fisher of the'  other. Beresford was blockaded in the"  port of .Mytilene hy torpedo boats and-  Fisher's fleet was hovering aliout and-  lying in wait outside.  Beresfoid's  task   was   to   coal   his'  fleet, get out of the harbor and  attack  Fisher.   It should be remembered that'  Lord Charles has uever been an enthu-'  siast on the subject of   torpedo   boats.  In fact he has   repeatedly   decried   its'    -  efficiency us an offensive craft.     It   is"   -  only a few years   ago   thai,   speaking'  in the House of Commons nn-ti   naval'  appropriation bill,  he asked th������ adini- .  ralty to furnish an old warship, armed'-    '  and under his directions, of which  he'  would take command with a volunteer"  crew raised hy himself and   defend   it-  successfully ugainst-the attacks of any"  nuniben of torppd-o boats.  His task at Mytilene was therefore'  precisely to his liking. By putting"  lights nn launches so as to resemble"  ships in the darkness he decoyed- the"  torptdo boats away on a false trail*  and,,_ with eveiy light on his own-,  warships out, he slipped away to sea,'  without a vessel touched' Haying-  done (his. he misled Fisher's scouts-  by false siguals and caught the hostile"  fleet ."entirely unprepared^ off Leni-'.  nos.   ./ -  Fisher's squadron was steering in*  parallel columns and Beresford ma-"  noue'vered his ships so oskillfully that  the:admiral had no opportunity to'  change this formation or to do any-"  .thing luit clear decks for instant ae-' -'  :tion. " '  -.- Beresford lain   his   ships   in   single',  file right in between the lines enabling*!-" *  him   to   fight   with   both   broadsides.-' ���������    *  while each   of   Fisher's   vessels, could'  use hut one.

In order to do  this it only requires an average of 16  pei sons to "return to the Conservative  fold, as in 25- constituencies the  Liberals got in by less than 100 majority, the average majority, in fact,  for those constituencies is only 30; so  it requires a change nf 16 voles* only to  elect tlie Tory. ���������Vernon News.

Would any calamity .follow a  change that would shut Mr. Tarte's  relatives out of the chance of making ?20 a day on every dredging contract granted ������;-- the public, works department?  Would the i.aiion be imperilled if  for Mr. Fieluin-r there was put in  charge of the finances a man who  had never tried to take a province out  of the confederation ?  Would the cause of temperance suffer if for Mr. Fisher in the cabinet  there was substituted a man who  does not have the open support of  the head of the organized liquor sell  ers?  Would the militia force be in danger if. instead of Dr. Borden, there  was at its head a man who never  defended a contractor who provided  the soldiers in the field with bogus  emergency rations?  Would there be occasion for sorrow if, for Sir. Sifton"s Yukon banditti, a straight minister would substitute   straight   public   servants?  Would the constitution suffer if,  for Mr. Blair, there was in charge of  the railways and canals of Canada  a man who had never bought a public  representative to betray his electors?  Would patriotism be endangered  If. instead of Mr. Bernier, who says  the Laurier government permitted  volunteers to enlist for the Queen's  " service in Sout'a. Africa, there" -was  in the cabinet a, tnau who would call  the sending of the contingents an ;i<;t  of duty to the empire?  Would   industry  suffer,   if,   in     Mr.  Mulock's plac-?, ;hei-_ was a man who  v/ould   uot   print   campaign   puffs   of  himself  at  the public  expense  under  ���������ttte-aitus-oi-iiriTibor-guzeite?���������������������������  Would cisterns revenue be decreased Ff Mr. Patt-c-rson had to give  vray to one "���������'������������������ho would be elected to  parliament without the "warm sym  rathy and cold i-istice" appeals of a  public briber?  Would comzn- r-.v get a jar if Sir  Richard Carlwrrcni ceased to draw a  salary' -s he?-'- oi a department ho  has himself ues-eribed as being as  useless as a.fifth wheel to a coach?  * Would the coifi.-h cease to bite or  the mackarel to run if Sir Louis  Davles went back to the pricticf of  law In the Charlottetown  court*;?  Would-tho Atlantic liners be delayed if Mr. Dobell followed into retirement his bott'.-r-necked mode! of a  fast steamship :aatdid not eventuate?  Would th������ :<u to the community be  FOUR VEARS LOST.  Canada has lost four year.- in. the  matters of national cold storage, fast  Atlantic transportation, aud the establishment of a British Pacific cable  and the furthering ��������� of inter-imperial  preferential trade. If the Canadian  peoplo do.-iiot wish to see four or  five more years of lost opportunities,  they musi . vote everywhere against  Lihernl candidates in the coming election.  The Liberals muddled with thc Canadian Pacific railway project just as  they have muddled with the fast Atlantic transportation, cold storage,  tho Pacific cable and Imperial preferential trade. They are lacking in  national." foresight and business capacity. The people of Canada had to  wait for a Conservative government  to givo them a railway uniting the  Pacific with the Atlantic, and they  will have to wait for a Conservative  government to cany out other national projects.  THE RAKE-OFF  The Toronto- Mail tells this as  the  ln  latest  specimen   of  Tarte's  work  that part of the country:  ���������rl'he Niagara Central railway tried  to lease from the government Hie  only available wharf at Port Dal-  housie, with a view to establishing a  line of steamers to Toronto.  When the company got down to  business It found that the wharf had  just been rented to the secretary of  the Reform association at Si. Carthev-  ines for $i0  per anuum.  By paying Uie secretary a 'Takeoff"  of STOOD ii could get thc lease, but  otherwise lt would have to go without the wharf.  Hero is S70000 ior "one of the boys"  as a rakeoff.  This is a sample ca__e. and we  should like to know il" this "go-  between" and rakeoff system, which  is in operation from th-e Yukon to  Halifax, and is so profitable to the  partisans,, is tlie sort of thins: decent  people, will  tolerate.  The Licensed Victuallers' Association of Montreal is the militant body  or llqour "me" in Canada. This organization keeps its eye on the political  outlook, insofar as "the traffic" is concerned. At the last meeting of the association in Montreal' the president,  Mr. Lawrence A. Wilso" made a  bitter attack upon Hon. Hugh John  Macdonald, I" consequence of the  latter having'enacted a. law putting  into force _ prohibition In Manitoba.  President Wilson said:  "Before entering into the subject  which I wish to bring before you  today,'I wish to state that in this connection all politics are eliminated. The  bylaws of our association do not even  alow ,the discussion or.'politics within  our deliberations. Every member  squares his views as best suits the relations of his business to the policy of  the-party in power.; A member may  be a Conservative or a Liberal. That  Is .-for him to consider, but when his  very existence and that of his litlte  ones are weighed in the balance, then  it behooves every member to consider  what path lie should pursue in" the  matter.  The Approaching Campaign.  "We are at present about to enter  into a. campaign, in which one section  of tlie people will' support the Liberals  and another section tho Conservatives". With many It Is .a question of  sentiment; wilh us it Is purely a business" proposition. We all know the  Hon. G. E. Foster's position on the  question of prohibition, and with the  presence of Hugh John Macdonald, In  the event of tho Consurvatlve party-  being returned, his hands would immeasurably be strengthened, and that  which is the fate of our friends of  Manitoba today may be our? tomorrow.

Alfred Austin has  deigned by written word to acknowledge the existence of critics. At the  same time, he speaks In justification  of his choice as the successor of  Wordsworth ana Tennyson and re-  afllrms his sentiments of friendship for  the people of the United States.  It may seem strange that the laureate should have seen fit to choose a  (St. Paul newspaper man as tbe vehicle  of his latest message to the Knglish  speaking world. But he has done this,  nevertheless, mul this Is bow It camo  about:  On the 2GUi day i.r August last the  Pioneer Press contained an article  written by Its managing editor, John  Tnlman, headed "Painting the Devil  Too Black." rt was a reply, to a Jaundiced attack upon Sir.

Tho writer ot the Pioneer  Press article���������not through whim, but  ns a matter of profound conviction���������  sought to stem the tide or abusive  criticism directed against the official  singer of the Court ol' St. James. He  pleaded for at least a modicum ot the  fair play due alike to poet and high-  minded gentleman of noble impulses,.

"Where do we find  in tho pages of Hansard that Mr.Oliver  made any motion or raised his. voice  in the lien note matter?" he asked,  and when he mentioned Mr. Davin's  name there wore cheers of approval.  Ho might have gone further and said  that there is no member iu the  house who has done so much for the  West as Mr. Davin, a nian of rare  education and possessed of wisdom,  w'hich is better than knowledge.

HOW  INCONSISTENT    _  When Lieutenant Governor Schultz  represented her majesty in, the prairie province, says the Vancouver Province, he had tho good fortune to  own a yacht on Lake Winnipeg.known  as the Keewatin. Word reached the  Free Press ofllco one afternoon that  tho Keewatin had capsized and two  men had been drowned. George Ham  was busy getting the details to wire  them east, when the telephone rang.  Tt was Governor Schultz.  "Is  that   you  George?"   asked     the  governor.  "Yes, what is. it,  governor?"  "There's a story going around that  the Keewatin  has capsized  aud - has  drowned  two men.    It Isn't true and  I want you  to deny it.'"  "But it is  true,"  replied  George.  "No,  it  Isn't," said    the  governor,  "and to prove it to you I'll .send the  captain  of the boat down."'  In about 20 minutes tho captain of  tho Keewatin stood before Mr. Ham.  "You've got a story about the Keewatin capsizing and drowning two  men?" said ho to Mr. Ham. "Well,  it Isn't true."  "But it is," said George, "I've talked with one of the men who was on  the boat." v  "Well then he must have lied to  you," replied the captain. "She didn't  capsize at all.

In Rossland  Riding Curtis polled fully 1)3 per cent  of the labor vote and only won by '31,  while Mackintosh did not poll more  than 10 pet- cent, of the Liberal.-'.  There are about (XK) labor votes in the  distiicl. that will, if they vote be, polled  fur Foley, This taken from the Liberal candidate will leave a majority of  over 200 for MacNeill in the Rossland  Riding. IOast Yale gave a Conservative majority of 220 over the Liberal  and Martin candidates combined,  West Yale, Revelstoke, Nelson and  Slocan also gave large Conservative  majorities. Unless the unexpected  happens 'MacNeill will carry the  c uistitiiency by a large majority.  Harvest Home Festival.  The annual Harvest Home services  in the Methodist church were held last  Sunday arid were a decided success.  The church was appropriately decorated wilh flowers, fruits, vegetables  and grain, and this display was  especially admired. The choir furnished an ample programme of Thanksgiving anthems both morning and  evening, and Mrs. Dent's solo "Abide  with me,"' was given in excellent  voice and was much appreciated by  the large congregation present. The  Pastor, Rev. S. J. Thoiiipson.Jpi-eached  the sermons and made the. appeal for  a thankoffering to apply on the church  debt. The sum of $272.75. was subscribed, which is a very lib?ral offering  considering the times. On Monday  evening the Ladies Aid Society  entertained the members of the congregation in a free social which was  greatly enjoyed by the large company  present. The.Pastor announced that  tlie offering on Sunday with the cash  in hand and amounts yet to come in  would wipe out the entire debt on th"  Methodist Property.
