by the patriots who were bent on destroying traces
of royalty in this city.
At the close of the service at St. Paul's and just
as the people began .to pass out a white-haired

THE PASSING OF VICTORIA.
BY E)WI.N MARKHIAM.
Homage and hunsh of heart belong to Death,
When at the door the Dread One entereth.
The courteous departure of the soul
To seek its hi h impe ;s: .able goal,
The still withdrawal of that inward Thing
That gives the shapen clay the aureole,
Sends on all hearts the ancient wondering.
And so a stillness falls across the day,
Now that the Queen has pushed aside the crown
And, with no heralds telling her renown,
Has gone the august unattended way-
Gone down the way where all of earth recedes,
Leaving behind a fragrance of good deeds,
A wreath of memories forever green
Above her name, mother and friend and queen.
Whatever fortune came to shape event,
She carried in her heart the Good Intent.
And surely, too, since that far fragrant hour,
When first the boughs of Eden broke to flower,
Nothing hath signed more kingly than kind deeds;
Lo, out of these the Golden Heaven proceeds !
The memory of good deeds will ever stay
A lamp to light us on the darkened way,
A music to the ear on clamoring street,
A cooling well amid the noonday heat,
A scent of green boughs blown through narrow
A feel of rest when quiet evening falls.
The kindly deed will live in memory
When London, in far centuries, shall be
As still as Babylon and both a dreim--
When London dead shall be some poet's thenme-
When all her tombs and towers shall be a flight
Of ghostly arches in the noiseless night.
Then as some bard on legends borne along
Shall build her faded glories into song,
Some Homer sing her darings and defeats,
Filling with crowds again the grass-grown streets,
Placing dead kings back on their crumbled seats-
There suddenly will start into his rhyme
Victoria's name long lavendered by Time ;
And all thIe poet heart of him will stir
At some small heart-warm chronicle of her,
The obscure whisper of some kindly deed
Of this dead Queen, her quick reply to need ;
And lo, his song will brighten and will shine
As though a star should break along the line !
Greater than any king with wolfish hordes
That ever climbed the pathway of the swords
Was this queen mother, gracious, gentle and
A white, fair flower of Christian womanhood.
Her banners felt the wind of every sea,
And yet she held a wider realm in fee,
The pure high Kingdom of the Womanly.
Peace to her spirit as thIe years increase-
Peace, for her last great passion was for peace.
O God of nations, on the dark of things
Send down the white fire of the King of kings,
Until all ruler shall be lifted up
To drink with common man the equal cup.
The iBritish Schools and Universities Club held

Ella Wheeler Wilcox, the notable American
poetess, now in London representing one of the
New York newspapers, makes the following tri-
bute to Queen Victoria.
TO ENGLAND'S DEAD QUEEN.
BY ELLA WHEELER WILCOX.
Colossal woman of an epoch past,
Your long eventful pilgrimage is done;
Yet shall the influence of your goodness last
When later centuries their course have run.
Imperial, not imperious, was your sway-
More than an Empress, greater than a Queen,
The watchful world beheld in you always
A virtuous woman of benignant mein.
Peace was your purpose, progress was your aim,
Fair justice was your large soul's honored guest.
When War, relentless.-and resistless, came
The tender heart brake in your woman's breast.
No impious lust for power defiled your mind,
Concerned with but the ultimate good of earth,
Because you lived, shall unborn rulers find
A nobler meaning in imperial birth.

READY FOR ENGLAND'S CENSUS.
THOUSANDS OF OFFICIALS To HANDLE THE
The night of Sunday, March 31, has been fixed
as census night for England and Wales, the Isle
of Man and the Channel Islands.
The taking, of a census is not merely a matter
of handing *ound schedules and getting them
filled in..-For more than twelve months twenty
clerks have been engaged in preliminary census
work at Somerset House.
Geographical counties have been divided into
parliamentary constituencies, boroughs, and coun-
ties; administrative counties have been divided
into sanitary areas, urban district and their
wards and rural districts; and registration coun-
ties-how confusing all these areas are-into civil
parishes and poor-law unions; municipal boroughs
and metropolitan boroughs have been chopped
into wards, and ecclesiastical parishes have had
their boundaries defined.
Two thousand and sixty-one registrars, under
635 superintendent registrars,' have received their
instructions in a specially printed little volume,
and each registrar has divided his sub-district
into enumeration districts, and has so planned his
division that each enumerator shall, as far as local
circumstances permit, be charged with some 300
separate families or 1,500 persons. Altogether
there will be close upon 40,000 enumerators..
Every enumerator will leave a schedule with
every occupier of a house or tenement in his dis-
trict during the week ending March 30, taking
a note of every person who receives a schedule
and of every house uninhabited or building. On
April 1 he will collect the schedules, and (after-
ward make a complete return into an enumera-
tion book. This he will forward to the registrar,
who will check it and pass it on to the superin-
tendent registrar, who, after satisfying himself
that the work has been properly done, will for-
ward the returns to the Census"Ofice before
In 1891, when the last census was taken, the
cost was 91,900. This year this figure will be
considerably exceeded partly on account of the
growth of population and partly owing to certain

olusively of men and women on the-ordinary

the staff will be gradually reduced and transfer-
red to other public departments. The employ-
ment of female clerks in census work is a new
departure, and it will be observedino]temporary
clerks will be employed as on previous occasions.
The census will be taken under the direction of

Here is a new story of the most famous of the
Beresfo 4s, told me the other day by an old
gentleman whose memory goes back to the begin-
ning of the reign. He remembers asking a ser-
vant one morning, sixty years ago, the reason for
her delay on an errand. This is the explanation
he was given : She was walking along the Bays-
water Road, when a post-chaise with two post-
boys galloped up behind her and suddenly stop-
ped. The boy in front leapt off and opened the
door and out jumped the Marquis of Waterford.
Can you fight?" he said to the lad. "Yes my
lord," was the reply and they set to. The Mar-
quis gave him a good trouncing and the fellow
turned tail. Ah, you blackguard," shouted the
"mad Marquis," "' get on your horse." Turning
to the other postboy, he said: "Can you fight?"
That I can," said theboy. Comedown, then,"
said Lord Waterford. They set to, and the post-
boy knocked the noble Marquis, in my friend's
paraphrase of his servant's report, "from June
to Jericho." Enough shouted Lord Water-
ford presently ; you're a fine fellow "i [Patting
him on the back, he gave him what looked like a
five-pound note. "As tor you, you poor devil! "
he said to the first postboy, "I suppose I must
give you something," and he threw him half a

Colonial Secretary's Office,
14th February, 1901.
HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR Iuis
been pleased to appoint
The Honourable Joseph 191. Hay-
The Worshipful R. A. Appleby, aind
The Worshiptul John B. Zuill,
to be Commissioners for the purpose of obtaining

pursuance of the provisions of The Census Act,
By His Excellency's Command,
ALLAN F. SMITH,
Acting Colonial Secretary.
The Art Union of London.
We have pleasure in drawing attention to tIc
work of the Art Union of London now represent-
ed in Bermuda by Miss Agnes Lea Jones, and )f
which Mr. F. L. Marriott (brother of the Rev. Y
Marriott of Hamilton Parish), is the present Se_-
retary in London. While Mr. D. McPhee L -e
(late Editor of the "Royal Gazette") and IN&.
Ormond T. Middleton held in turn the post -f
Local Secretary, the name of the Art Union WI-
came familiar to many, bat w- ~a-iuaie- thrt-4 f
purposes of its existence and its methods of wek
have perhaps, never been widely understood. k
few facts therefore may be of general interest.
The ArtfUnion of London was incorporated ty
IJoyal Charter in 1846 when his late Royal Higt-
eness the Duke of Cambridge was its Presideir,
though its actual establishment dates from 183'.
The aims it had in view from tihe first iinre: t e
development of the lore and appreciation of t e
Fine Arts among the British people, and the en-
couragement of British Artists. In ortler to f r-
ther these objects it has steadily set its face agfist
the universal employment of photogravure and
other cheap mechanical processes to the Mnmost
exclusion of a higher class of work, and, By issu-
ing an annual etching or engraving for presenta-
tion to its members, it has done much t encour-
a.e and keel) alive the school of engri'ers whose
work has long been one of thle g.'i Ies of British
Art. At the present moment changing public
taste indicates that its efforts hiiave not been inef-
fectual. People are refusing to be put. up with
mechanical work, and are demanding the eviden-
ces of the skill of humaileye and hand in which
a good etching or engraving is so rich and which
a photo lithograph or photogravure can never af-
ford. In this reaction that is happily setting in,
the Art Union seems likely to at last reap the
benefit of its long championship of a good cause.
In speaking of the principles upon which it is
worked, it is to be noted that tlhe Art Union is.a
purely voluntary society under the direction of a
Council whose services are strictly honorary, and
the entire income, after the payment of necessary
working expenses, is devoted to the production of
the annual etching or engraving, for presentation
to members, and to the purchase of paintings and
other valuable works of art for distribution at the
public drawing held every year.
Every subscriber of one guinea becomes a mem-
her of the society for the current year and is en-
titled to the etching of the year, (or, if he should
prefer it, one of the many fine etchings or engrav-
ings issued by the society in past years) and to
one chance in the allotment of prizes at the an-
nual distribution in April. The presentation
print for this year "The Meadow Pool" is now
on view at our office, and a small cut from it may
also be seen here. It is the joint work of two of
the most eminent etchers of the day, David Law
and C. 0. Murray, and is taken from a magnifi-
cent canvas 48 x 30 in. by J. Clayton Adams.
Representing as it does a characteristic Englishi
landscape, it will no doubt appeal strongly to all
British subjects at this particular moment in the
Empire's History. The original will be the first
prize at the drawing in April next, and we can
only hope that it may fall to the lot of some Ber-
There are other interesting particulars that their
stores can furnish regarding the engravings avail-
able instead of the print of the year, and also con-
cerning the Art Union's permanent gallery of oil
and water colour paintings, and its collection of
works in pottery, bronze and Parian, any of which
can be acquired, instead of a print, by subsril ers,
either by extra payments or by allowing their
subscriptions to accumulate from one year to
another. It is intended next month, if possible,
to have an exhibition of some of the Art Union
pictures which will be kindly loaned for the pur-
pose by subscribers. This exhibition will, we
trust, give a fair idea of some of the excellent
work issued by the Union and which we are glad
to say is now finding its way to Bermuda where
it is much appreciated by lovers of Art. May we
hope that its advent here will not only appeal to
the already initiated, but also create and develop
in others that love for the beautiful which forms
such an important element in the comfort and re-
finement of every home.
Mr. E. Ryan and Mr. IR. D. Buckley, of Pater-
sop, N.J., and Mr. 8. L. Balcharach, of Ilartford,
' Conn., are guests for several weeks at time P'rincess
Broken Hard Stone for Roads.
The Contract for supply of broken hard stone
for road purposes has been awarded to Mr. J. W.
Harnett by the Board of Public Works at its
meeting on Tuesday last. By the time the con-
tract lapses, June 30th 1905, it is expected that
about 10 miles of thoroughly macadamised road
will have been constructed.
Two and a half miles per annum looks like
rather slow progress, especially with the aid of
machinery ; but the rate of advance is of necessity
limited by the amount of money placed annually
at the disposal of the Board of Public Works for
roadmaking purposes. If increased funds were
granted, no doubt there would be a corresponding
increase in the length of road macadamised within
a given time. There are about 50 miles of main
road in the Colony, so that, at the race of 24
miles per annum, it would be at least 20 years
before all that distance had been covered. There
are further about 40 miles of road to be consider-
ed which would probably add another 16 years to
the period, making in all 36 years, at the present
rate of expenditure.
Change of Date.
It will be observed from our advertising
columns that the date of sale of Col. Leake's fur-
niture by Messrs. B. W. Walker & Co., Govern-
ment Auctioneers, has been changed from Monday,
the 18th, to THURSDAY, the 21st instant.
We publish below anl extract from a letter ie-
ceived by the last mail dated 5th Feb. from Mr.
A. J. Bloor, who is well known to many of our
"I attended on Saturday a funeral service in
memorium the late Queen Empress, held in our
Trinity Church, one of nearly a dozen held in
different Episcopal Churches, as you know we
call those of the Anglican communion. And I
suppose that among the congregations of the hun-
dreds of New York houses of Protestant worship,
there was not one which, the day before yester-
day, did not listen approvingly and sympathizing-
ly to a more or less extended eulogium on "The
Queen," as she has for more than a generation
been exclusively designated in the Unit id States,
in contradictinction to other queens, whether reg-
nant or consort. Such is the power of character
and pure example attached to exalted place.
All the flags in New York (except that over
the City Hall, a stronghold of Tammany), have
been flying at half-mast from the day of Her Maj-
esty's death up to yesterday. One might wel,
have imagined oneself in a British Colony.
Yours very truly,
A. J. BLOOR."

poration of Hamilton, and that in addition to the

1900 shows that it is doing very good work, and is
becoming more widely useful each year. Under
the present excellent management it was run at
less expense last year, and yet more patients were
received and treated' The number of cases treat-
ed last year in the Hospital was 44 as compared
with 34 in 1899, and the total number treated
both in and out of the Hospital was 118 last year
as compared with 58 in 1899. These facts speak
eloquently in favour of the Hospital, and will, it
is hoped, induce all to give liberally to its fund

Mr WILLIAM THOMPSON, of 31, Station
Road, Harlesden, N.W., writes :-" In Septem.
ber I had no holiday, and as a consequence be-
came very much run down from overwork-
Whenever I stood up I would feel severe pains in
my limbs, and my nerves were very much out
of order. I lost my appetite completely, and was
totally unable to do anything. I had to give up
work on account of general weakness and neural-
gia, which was terrible, the pain in my head,
face, and neck being almost unbearable at times.
I was very low indeed, and my whole system was
out of order. While at home unable to go out or
to attend to my duties, I noticed an advertise-
ment of Phosferine, and also noticed that this
medicine was recommended by 'Science Siftings.'
I then got a bottle. It brought me immediate
relief and after a few days I was nearly well
again. I got other bottles, and in a week or two
was able to return to my work. Before taking
Phosferine I had been under a doctor, but he did
me no good. I consider Phosferine a wonderful
restorative medicine, and I can gladly recommend
it to all who suffered as I did."
