Lord Strathcona says that by
the close of this century Canada
will have a population equal to
that which this country now has.
That is not improbable for Can
ada is making great gains in
wealth and population. We view
her prosperity without envy and
even with genuine satisfaction,
for if no higher motive inspired,
that of self-interest would. The
greater and more prosperous both
Canada and Mexico become the
better it will be for us. Take
Canada as an illustration. Not
only does she buy more of us each
succedfng year than she does of
England but her trade with us in
creases far more rapidly than it
does with that country notwith
standing Canada gives her the
advantage of a preferential tariff.
Twenty states of the union
have now reduced passenger
rates, and the public pays from
two cents to two and a half cents
a mile. In almost every instance
the reduction has resulted in a
large increase in travel, just as
its advocates said it would. Even
the roads now admit it although
they assert that the receipts do
not equal the expenditure. Pos
sibly this may be temporarily true
in a few instances, but only tem
porarily. In time it will work out
alright for past experience con
clusively proves that a reasonable
reduction under favorably cir
cumstances ultimately results in
gain, and that the conditions were
favorable in the case of the roads
effected was seen in their net
earnings.
The occpation by Japan of the
# island of Pratas, within 120 miles
of the Phillippines, will give the
yellow journals and fire-eating
politicians a chance to work up
another war scare. We may be
sure that our government will
safeguard its interests, and in
that convictiorf one can .view the
matter without getting excited.

The fight over the PalRce of Peaee
ft The Hague is assuming a more
acute form. As is well known, M. Cor
donnier'B project, to which the palm
paq, awarded finally by the Jury, la
much too expensive and If executed
would cost about twice the amount set
«stde by Mr. Carnegie. It has been a
complaint of other competitors, who
^ept Inside the limit, that the jury in
'arriving at its decision took no notice
if this breach of the rules. "Every
architect," they reason, "can plan a
splendid building when there are no
limits to Its costliness. We have kept
within these lines, but others, among
them M. Cordonnier, did not, and ob
tained mueh advantage thereby."

The contestants, each evident

A prominent lawyer in South Caro
lina suspected his colored servant ot
tempering with a certain brand of tine
whisky In his wine cellar. The em

become empty, and then. Instead of re
filling them, placed the remainder lu
bottles and labelled each one "Poison."
One evening on returning home un
expectedly, he found his servant with
one of his bottles. Seizing the bottle
from the darky's hand, he exclaimed in
a tone of terror: "Great heavens!
Sam. Do you know what you have
been doing? This bottle Is marked
'Poison.' "
The negro took the bottle and sur
veyed it closely. Then he sniffed at It.
A melancholy smile passed over his
dusky countenance, and he replied:
'Tse been fooled again.''
"Fooled again?" repeated the mas
ter. "What do you mean?"
"Well, sah," continued the darky, in
the same tone, "it am dla way. I
knowed from de flrat, from de way you
acted 'bout dat demllohn, dat you had
yo' suspicions oh me; and dat sho
made me feel pretty blue. I got dis

As a result of the Monday and

we are informed that Messrs.
Chappell's and H. Mullendore's
horses which were driven through
from here, sold for the highest
price of any that were sold at
this sale. This certainly speaks
well for these progressive horse
men as there were thousands of
good horses sold there and to top
such a market is a distinction
not easily to be gained. The sale
was a good one—so good, in fact,
that all the horses were taken
the first day, leaving nothing for
the second day of the sale. If
you want to buy horses on the
Dickinson horse market you must
"go early and avoid the rush."
