Graham is making good as Minister of Railways. Even the press of the Opposition, admit that. The other day at a gather ing of Mxmtreal business men of all shades of politics a resolution com mending Mr. Graham, for the expe- ditious and business like way he had lu Loadou, Out., is uji old citizen Mr." William Bowman, ol' whom ar interesting story is told. Mr. Bow- man is a verterau railway man. li England oa one occasion he- lui> charge of the train upon which wei dealt with the break in the Cornwall the late Qucen Vic_toria an> canal was unanimously passed and SOU- the of aow mention was made by several speak- ers of the personal interest the Min later took in. the matter. The Ottawa Journal is not known is an advocate of the interests of the Liberal but is usually a severe cri- tic. However in the case of Mr. Gra- ham it is compelled to admit that he is handling his department splendid ly. Here is what it says "In the presentation of his Bills in the House; indeed in all his work in the elucidation of legislation aad the general advancement of that portion oi the business of government for which he is directly responsible Mr. Graham has shown himself a, capable Minister and-skilled parliamentarian. He is fortunate in a maner which dis- arms criticism. It is not exactly a 'smooth' manner of the cloying sweet kind which certain of his colleagues effect sometimes to their undoing. It seems rather an indication of a na- tive good temper. When he hits, he hits hard of course and he is not afraid to hit his party when he feels like it. But he conveys to the mind of the observer a "convincing impres sion of a whole-souled Tespect for the Kiug. The journey was beiiig irmiu from Windsor to Portsmouth, and tit the latter place a special depot had been erected, was found to be to small for the private car and the royal party. So it was necessary for the queen to walk some distance from the coach to her carriage, and Mr. Bowman carried the- prince ii his arms. The story was related to Rev. E. B. Lanceley, who became in terested, and at onco wrote to King Edward, informing him that Mr. j Bowmau was still alive. Within a short time a letter was received from His Majesty's secretary Lord stating that His Majesty was deep- ly touched to hear of the incident, and requesting that the King's best wishes be conveyed to Mr. Bowmau. The letter is now in the latter's sessiou, and is greatly treasured. PAGEANT TO COST Quebec, July pageants at the Tercentenary will cost but they wjl be magnificent. Some of the costumes will cost over each. The robes worn by Henry IV. of France and his Queen, one of blue velvet, with ermine trim uiiug, and have trains five yards long. Most of the ladies were fur uished with the mate-rial for their costumes at wholesale rates and got them made themselves. The men were given theirs free, and' will re- turn them. No one seems able to figure what the number of visitors will-be, but aa official says that were look ed for from first to last. The inform ation bureau in charge of Mr. Geo Gale has registered hundreds of of rooms and can accomodate fron to not including those who stay with friends.

He is a very respectable tri bune and no clearer index of 'the val- ue of the influence of such men in public life could be afforded than is afforded in the sanity which gives character to the debates on the .meas ures which he introduces." INCONSISTENT M.P.S A favorite form of complaint by Conservative oppositionists at Ottawt of government expenditure in pro viding aids to navigation and trans portation in the matter of minor pub He-works. The-assertion is made that these works are unnecessary and only another form of buying support These public works, such as wharves expenditure on small harbors, etc. are as much needed in local as great canals, trans continenta railways, etc., from a national pom of view. And the Peterboro Examin er very effectively points out tha Conservative members are not them selves adverse to having the "mone wasted" when zheir own particular! constituency benefits. On Monday, in Parliament, three members of the Conservative Opposition made de mands which practically bt-lie the serving under him. Sterii and re- erved in his mariner, he is, howev- er, very just.

The doctor, however, thought otherwise, and "or- dered the man back to work. ,.Later on the soldier found himself growing much weaker and spoke to the ser- geant. "Why not tell Lord was the reply. "He's in his office." This the soldier feared to do, but the sergeant went straight In and laid the case before Lord Kitchener. "Send the man here and fetch Drs. or three weeks.

The tents are being run up at the rate of 150 a day and stretch out to the cliff's edge. On the grounds are lavator- ies, including big baths and each tent is fitted with a basin and tap.

New York., July the anti- betting law here, recording best on an election is as great crime and may be1 visited with as dire pun- ishment as recording bets-on the racQ- track; but London Lloyd's will write insurance againwt the elections of Bryan, just as. in many cases these venturesome insurance brokers have written' policies against the birth of twins and in at least one recent case insured a man against molesting his motliC'r-iu The policy is of the form sometimes loosely described as a wager or hon- or policy, and while it nitty not be euforcible Ht law the standing of the Lloyd's brokers gives the better am- ple protection against any welch- ing on the part of the broker.
