There can only be  one Hug in this 12m(tire. And "any  man I'or whom that ilag is not good  enough in good times and i-vil. in pea  and- prosperity or in danger and  calamity, tossed aloft by tin- favoring  brei"/.i! of victory nnd dominion or  sinking down, if so it should come, to  ruin amid the crash of llie Kinpire  and the downfall of modern civilization, any man, for whom that one  Ilag is not the ling ��������� under every  possible .coiit inguncy and circumstances has no business to be guiding  the destinies'of tho humblest, colony  of this great Empire, as a minister of  the crown, if these "reserved loymlisls"  cannot, help their sentiments neither  can we help ours. The dividing line  between "reserved loyalty" and unreserved treason is too thin for us 1,0  contemplate with equanimity any man  holding an otlice of trust in Ibis  Dominion venturing near-it. A war  between the Umpire and France is not  such an utterly unlikely contingencv.  Mr. Tarte in his character of "reserved  loyalist" has already declared that in  such an ovent' Canada would remain  neutral, exactly as lhu "ri/surved  loyalists" of theAfricanilcr Band had  lhu lunacy tosupposc Unit O.ipe Colony  was going lo hu allowed to remain  ni.'iitr.il just In-fore the Transvaal war  broke out.

The llritish Empire Review for  August contains t be following timely  rebuke ol i\lr. .1. Israel Tartu for his  recent utterances in Paris:  Wu   have     referred     on     previous  occasions to the ambiguous utterances  of Mi.T.irle, the   minister   of   Public  "Works,  ox-x   the   attitude   of   French-  Canadians towards  the  Empire,   and  have   taken   the  line   that   the   more  charitable construction  was  likely  to  be   also   the   more   accurate,     whilst  considering that   he  had   in  -nine  instances   heen   culled   lo   account    foi  remarks for which   he   was   only   indirectly   ru-ipousible.    lt   is   therefore  with regret thnt we  find   that, during  Mr. 'Tarte's icient  visit  to   Frame  as  the   Canadian   Commissioner   at   the  Paris Exhibition,    he   has   in   sever.il  instances iiinile use of language   which  is scarcely compatible with his position  as a minister   of   lhe   Uiitish   Crown.  His words appear lo bu perfectly  well  .ml henticnled. nnd we shall (io him  no  injustice   by   quoting   I hem.    In   the  cour.-;.'   of   an   address   ou   "Canada"'  delivered in the Canadian Pavillion   lo  ii mixed   audience.   In-   look   the   extraordinary   -lep   of   discussing    the  probable action  of  French-Canadians  in thu event of   war   between   Fiance  and England, and expressed the  opinion that they would  stand  aside.     In  the same speech hu laid stiess   on   tiie  essentially   Frunch   character   of   the  Freiich-Canadinns. and predict ed   that  tliey would   become   tuoru   and   moie  indepeudentof Engl'iiul. The.    iuipi ess-  ion likely to be   produced   by   such   a  speech upon the Fiench s-ction of  his  audience inn easily bu imagined.    But  stranger utterances were yet to   come.  In a speech at -Rouen,   Mr.  Tartu   de-  clarcd  than    "wu    become   moie   and  moiu    French    ..   .    .    aye,     we    are  more Frunch   than    we   were   a   year  ago,"  and,   again,    "wu   lepresent   in  America the Franco of   Europe,"   nnd  "wuare,  of course,   loyal   British   subjects, but we ai e   French   before  any-  ihing     else."     Tf        1 hese      singular  observations were  intend"d  fairly  ns  an assertion of the desire of lhe Fiench-  Oanadians lo preserve  their historical  chararleristicesand privileges, it would  bu   sndicient   lo     describe     them    as  unnecessary.    As   tin-  greatest  living  represent alive of the lace. Sir   Wilfrid  Laurier, has   repeatedly   testified,   the  Freiicli-Onliiidimis enjoy under British  rule   every    libei ly    nnd    institution  which Ihey most denilv   cherish,   and  I heir existence as a loyal and  integral  poi tion of thu Dominion isa pei petunl  object lesson of t he wisdom   of   a   fiee  sysl em of government.    But it  is  one  thing lor   a   French-Onnadian   lo   be  French in Canada, nnd it is   quite   another mailer when he declines himself  French among lhe French   in   France,  nnd'spenks of    French-Canada,  an   lhu  representative   of   European   France,  "iind ns more closely   allied   to   Fiatici-  than it is to Britain.

They aro both continental in size and of limitless possll.iilit1.es.

WHAT  PRICE���������PATRIOTISM?  Colonel Herchmer had been Commissioner or the North West Mounted police for several years. When  the war broke out Colonel Herclimei-  volunteered for service in South  Africa and left for the front. Before  Uls return to.-Canada his ..dismissal had  been decided tiDOn and he was dismissed in due course.  Different .-reasons were given at  different timeB. Old age was one,  ljut the colonel's physicial condition  gives that the lie.'������������������'.. Insubordination  ���������to-the-Jniperiai��������� authorities���������-was���������another, but the fact that he is still a  lieutenant colonel in the imperial service gives that the lie. The real  reason was that his place was wanted  for   a  friend   of  "the  party."  IC the rolunteer -who goes to South  Africa to fight for his Queen is to  have his job given away by the Liberal government during his absence,  then the Question arises���������'What/price  Patriotism?  A POOR  DEFENCE  There must be some ..satisfaction to  friends of Hon. Clifford Sifton in do-  fend Ine criticisms of his public acta  with the theory* thai his ability has  brought so much censure upon him.  The history of Canada dooa not  show that the men of greatest ability  earn the severest and most persistent  critlcslm. Does the ability of Clifford  Sifton so far outclass the ability of  .Sir Wilfrid Laurier. or Sir ��������� Richard  Cartwright. that he invites more lios-  ���������iility than his colleagues? It is al  spoor compliment to a full dozen cab- .  inet ministers, who would resent the  ���������suggestion that they are inferior in  ability  to  Hon.  Clifford  Sifton.  The theory by which it is sought to  -weaken criticism of the minister of the  ���������interior is the creation of apologists.  One of these days an attack on Hon.  Mr. Dobcll will be explained on the  plea that the overshadowing genius of  tbe bottle nosed legislator inFpircs  the uncomplimentary remarks of his  ���������critics.  '.Mliiisicrs Disperse���������But Make no Announcement    aa    to  Elections���������  Nominations In Several Constituencies.  After .holding several cabinet meetings the ministers are scattering for  campaign work and council will not  meet again for some days. The failure  of the government to make, any announcement ii.:i to the cencrol elections  has set politicians guessing and prophecies of autumn elections arc being  revised  to suit tho now  conditions.  Routine business, the ministers say.  engaged their attention at the cabinet  Hitting!*.    That  thero    should  be such  nn accumulation of routine work staggers   tbe   credulity   of   Conservatives  It   Ih   not   unlikely   that   the   all   important  question   bus   been  given   the  fullest discussion.      The ministers betaking themselves  to far oft constliu-  encloft   for    active    work  goes  to  dlcnte  that  the  date  ot    the  election Is not as   uncertain  would   muke * believe.      The  point to an autumn contest.  Dissolution cannot be    so    very  awuy' when    the   printing    of   volcni'  lists Is being'pushed  with such feverish luislc.      If the elections take place  in  October or November    the  lists  of  ls'.il)   will  be used    fur  Ontario,  while  for  Ouebeo  and  Nova .Scotia  Un.- lists  of ���������'I'.'OU   will   serve.      Vrlends   or   the  government continue'to protest to the  Justice  depiirtiiH.nl    al    Ottawa    thai  the  franchise ���������': act    is  unworkable    lu  certain   of   its   provisions,   or   lack   nt  provisions,  but  Hon.  David Mills and  Cluirles   A.   Flf/piitricl-t   lire   confident  of the soundness of the new law.   Otic  of the chief criticisms is. thai  thero is  no'specific provision   tor legislation in  the Dominion franchise act. and hence  it cannot be  carried  out  for the i>tir-  lioses  of a  federal, election.    The  law  ofllcers  of  the crown  contend   that  a  section of the act authorizes the preparation of  new  lists where  the  provincial lists are more than a voar old.  nd gives the governor in council power  to  appoint   tho necessary  ofllcers  and  confer on them the necessary' powers.  It   is    further     asserted   by   the   law  ollieers that the    spirit of tlio. Federal  franchise  act  contemnlatcs  the  adoption of the provincial franchise in its  widest  sense,   and     that    the   courts  would: interpret  the  intention of parliament as adopting ri, registered manhood franchise.  Down at St. Hyacinthe lately Henri  Bourassa and Domiuick Monet. M. P.,  attacked     imperialism  with    all    the  venom thai characterized thoir utter-  ant:OH  in    the  Dominion    parliament.  Bourasa 'reiterated his old theory that  speculators  caused   the  war.* in  South  Africa, that Joe Chamberlain stood in  with him. and that the governor general  was sent here specially to foster  the imperial spirit.;    Bourassa blamed  Sir  Wilfrid Laurier.  for not resisting  the  demand  for  a    Canadian  contingent.      General   Hutton.   he   insisted,  exerted  pressure  on  members   of   the  militia, who bad the choice of going to  war  or losing  thoir positions.    Monet  associated himself     with     Bourassa's  ravings   against ��������� :   Imperialism.   . The  latter   modified   some   of   his   rashest  outbursts when he said, if the British  fine were attacked 'on Canadian  soil,  '.���������French  and  Enelish  would  rise  alike  to  defend  it.-���������' even    asalnst    the   tricolor.  .     Billy Slubbs, M. P. for Cardwell.ivho  I tra.vels. undfir   the ; name  of  an ���������independent Conservative, has not deceived Geo. Taylor.thc Conservative whip.  A leter which Taylor has written  to a  friend: In '*. Card-well hasa iroocl deal .to  justify' 11. for no man  in Ottawa, with  independent    professions      has      been  more of a partisan than Billy Stubbs.  Mr.   Taylor    says:      "JM'.   Stubbs    has  voted Grit right alone durinc tho last  four years,  althouah he still  poses as  an   independent,   and  was    elected, as  such     bv      Cardwell.      Conservatives  really  regard  him    a.s  a  supporter of I  ���������the I.iuii-ii-'i' government, and he showed this when he shirked, a vote on the .  motion  condemning    the    minister ot  militia for the. emergency rations furnished  the    Canadian    contingent,    r  hope tha Coservatives of Cardwell will  not .again roake . the ��������� mistake of: sending such a man ; to Parliament."  Sir Charles Tupper and Hon..*Georee  E.  Foster seem to  be  cutting  a, wide  swath in Nova Scotia.     The audiences  which  have  turned out.  to hear  them  rival  tho meetings which    Sir Wilfrid  Laurier recently addressed. Sir Charles  sooke at Westville last week.* He attributed the erreat iron development in  Nova Scotia to the national policy and  bouiity-systemr-^-two-achievements-ofthe party which he leads.   Mr. Foster  praised   the   aims   of   labor   organizations, largely represented at the meeting,   and   pointed  out  the mutual  dependence   of   capital   and   labor.   Premier  Murray   also    delivered    an address.   He predicted a tremendous .development for Canada within the next  3$ years.  Sir"Hibbert Tupper has been selected  honorary president of the Conservative  association of British Columbia. Chas.  Wilson, Q. C��������� has been chosen as the  leader .of the party in the province.  These selections Were made at a convention in New Westminster, which  also passed resolutions pledging the  convention's support to Sir Charles  Tupper and condemning the Laurier  govermenf for not carrying out its  leader's pledges regarding Chinese Immigration; for allowing notorious abuses of naturalization laws, and for  neglecting to assist In fiwterlg thc  fishing industry by-establishing necessary hatcheries.

A -motion was passed  asking  the executive committee to prepare a scheme  of parochial taxation for the payment  of tho ni'ccssary expenses of delegates  to synod and members of the executive  committee,   so  that the  scheme  might  be  accepted   an 'a".voluntary..measure  by   the   parishes   before    next    synod  when It will be submitted lo tbe synod  for synodical action.  In connection with the canon relating to clergy 'superannuation'; it was  decided that tho parochial offertories  for the fund should be taken up on the  tweTfth Sunday after Trinity In each  year at the services hold on that day.

The Chiueso languiiijii is a purely symbolic language.    All other languages ore  phonetic or alphabetical.    Iu nil the phonetic   languages   thn   sounds   that   arc  heard  in   the spoken  lungunne  ure analyzed or split up into a few elementary  sounds which by combination form words.  To eacli ot these few elementary Hounds  an arbitrary  sign on paper in assigned,  and these signs constitute tlio alphabet.  Thus in  nny European Innguuge and iu  any  other  language except Chinese  the  sound of the voice in spouking is thc basin  of  the written  language.    They  are  nil  phonetic.    It the same sound is used to  represec-nt two or more ideas, this makes  no'.difference.     The  appropriate  letters  of the alphabet are used, und the writer  relies   upon   the. neighboring   words   to  prevent absurdity.  The Chinese written language is totally different from this. It has no alphabet at nil nnd no upproneli to nn alphabet, but proceeds on n different basis,  which will bo best, brought home to an  American by a simple illustration: When  traveling recently hi Belgium, 1 had oc-  I casion to exnniine n railway lime table,  t and there 1 found Unit certain railway  stations where refreshments might b������  procured wore marked by a llttlo representation ot a wine cup.  This is Chinese writing. What mode ot  writing could be briefer or more to tho  purpose or more iiilslnUnble! You see  the drawing of a glass, it stnres you in  the faee, and you know that, refreshments there await your exhausted friuno,  The symbol expresses an Idea quite apart  from the spoken utterance ot that Idea.  in  Maine  NO  MORE  HUGGING  Winnipeg, Sep. 15:  The  Republican  plurality  was 33,2*15.

Then  in quick    succession followed mutton,  bolide  pig hide,  grilled    fish rolled  in  sugar,   and   boiled  fowl   dipped   in  soy  sdueo.

Kruger has formally resigned  llie position that he hold as president  of the South African republic, thus  severing his official connection with the  Transvaal. Kruger's action' shows how  hopeless in his opinion is the war.  which has now boen carried on for  nearly a year, and his desertion of the  lioers should make clear to his fellow  burghers that it is useless to continue  the struggle nny longer. It is probably unknown lo the inhabitants of the  Transvaal and Orange River Colony  that nearly 15,000 of their fellow subjects are now prisoners of war, not  one ot whom will be released until  these now under arms against us surrender unconditionally. The burghers  must be cognizant of the fact that no  intervention on their behalf can come  from any of tlie great powers, and  further, that the British empire is determined to complete the work which  lias already cost so much money and  ���������.-.o many lives, and carry to a conclusion a war against her by the late  governments of the Transvaal and the  Orange Free State to which there can  only be    one ending."    lord    Roberts  THE CHINESE SITUATION  IJoxors  Said   to  bo Disband ing in tho  Tu  Lu  District  Hong Kong, Sop. 14.���������Orders have  been issued for the 3rd brigade, *to  proceed to Wei Hal Wei Immediately.

Bosworth,  freight manager, of the' Canadian Pacific railway, have Just returned from  Boston, where they spent the whole  of Tuesday, discussing with the management of the Boston'& Maine company the question-of making Boston  the ocean terminus for their winter  ���������freight traflle.  Winnipeg, Sep. -13.���������A - sad tragedy  occurred " yesterday afternoon, - when  Mrs. Hutton, wlfo of Dr. Hutton, the  well known practitioner of this city,  was found dead lying in her room. A  revolver found by her side gave the  story of her death: Mrs. Hutton had  been in ven' poor health all summer,  and her malady it Is believed. preyed  on her mind to an extreme degree.  She was alone In the house with the  domestic when the death occurred. The  servant did not hear the revolver shot,  but being unable lo get into her mistress' room, or make her hear when  she knocked, she ran for the neighbors  and tho unfortunate lady was found  in a dying condition.  ASLEEP  ON   THE   TRACK  "A log jam is one of the most formidable problems we have to encount  er  in  our    lino  of    business,"  said  a  Mississippi lumberman at  the Grune-  wald yesterday.     "We had several bipr  ones  on  the  Paseairoula  and   ils  tributaries' this' year, and a tremendous  jam  some  distance above Moss Point  was dynamited only last week.   A few  dozen logs will become wodced for an  instant in a narrow part of a. stream  and in less time   than it takes me to  tell  it hundreds  of  others    will  come  swooping  down  and  pack   themselves  in      an    intricate,   close      knit  span,  reaching  from    bank    to   .bank    and  as  solid  as  a  rock.      The  force  they  exert is something marvellous. During  a recent   jam in my section I saw a  lot of logs plunges under the edge of  the blockade,  and a few second  later  they pushed their way up through the  very middle of the pack, tossinc timbers aa big around as a mail's waist  into the air like so many .toothpicks.  The noise  they    made as  they drove  through the mass was simply deafening.     It sounded as if the solid earth  was being torn up by Its foundations.  When the logs passed under the ,1am  they were evidently caught In such a  way  as   to  still   further  obstruct  the  Imprisoned-streamr^and���������were-hurled  up wards with all the irresistible force  of millions of gallons of rushing water.  "The  breakin-j cf  a Jam  is a  very  ticklish  operation,  and    seems    to be  largely a matter or instinct with old  rivermen.      The   lues    and   angles  of  stra'n in such a blockade are so complicated that   the best engineer ln the  w.,ilo.ls apt to go wrong iri Indicating  thf pm-per point of attack.   A veteran  lumberman,   on    the    contrary,     Will  often  take a  long  look at  the mass  and then point at the "key log." The  key log Is  the  timber on ���������' which  the  straining centers aud when'it is blown  out or pried- out the pack. In almost  every instance will break of itself.  I  had an old fellow in my employ a few-  years ago who could locate a key log  nine times out   of ten.    He   couldn't  read   or  write,  knew  nothing   about  engineering, and was unable to explain  how he arrived at his conclusions.   He  said it 'came kinder nach'ru!.'
