London, March   12.���A meeting of tbe
Liberal   leaders   was   held   to-day.     Lord
Rosebery in a speech   referred   feelingly to
the absence of Mr. Gladstone.    There was
no need of a declaration   of his policy since
there would be do ohange of   measures, but
only of men.    The honor of England abroad
was safe in their hands.    Tbe Welsh churoh
question would  be pressed  to  the earliest
settlement. (Cheers).    Regarding the group
of   Irish questions the party was bound by
every tie of honor to oontinue  Gladstone's
policy.    If there were any doubts on that
point, they ought to be set at  rest by Mor-
ley's decision to remain   in   the Irish office.
With Mr. Gladstone's last declarations con
oerning the House   of   Lords, tlie   Queen'n
preseut advisers entirely agreed.    He him-
reif   perhaps   hud   used   in   the House of
Lords   even   stronger   language   thau Mr.
Gladstone had used.    What the Lords had
lo understand was, that with them the risk
of revisi**n was delicate and  rejection  dangerous (Cheers )     With tbe democratic suffrage whioh   the   oountry   now   enjoyed, a
chamber constituted like the House of Lords
was an anomaly.    (Hear hear.)   The   Government will lose sight of no measures  that
might   force   upon   the   attention   of  the
oountry this anomaly, and the grave peril to
which i he existing constitution of the Honse
of Lord* exposed the nation.    (Hear, hear.)
Lord Rosebery said it was the   greatest  inconvenience his being in the House of Lords
but it Was no fault of his.    (Laughter )    He
did nut think nought to be referred to as a
stigma.    He asked the Party  to judge him
by his Heeds.    (Oneers.)    When the   party
tired of him, they oould  dismiss him,   but
while he w.s leader he would  be steadfast
in carrying out the  Liberal   policy.    (Prolonged oheers.)
Sir Wm. Harcourt said be was gratified
bear   this   exposition of  their   leaders
Still, the  party felt as the British
eet felt over   the loaa of   Nelson, but  tbe
same spirit remained among them as animated Nelson's crew.    Though  l hey had suffered a great loss they would do their duty.
Though Roseberry was a Lord, the Liberals
in the Commons  could be rt'wd upon as a
compaot party in the   support of his polioy,
(Cheers).    It   was   utterly untrue, he said,
that he desired to drop   Home   Rule.   The
members of the Cabinet then dispersed.
The Queen's Speech.
London, Maroh 12.���Parliament reassembled to-day. The Queen's speech wai read
by the Lord High Chancellor in the chamber
of the House of Lords, in whioh the Com
moners also assembled. The speech read in
Parliament was as follows:
My Lords, and Gentlemen: My relations
with foreign powers oontinue amicable.
Negotiations between my Government
and RuKsia for the settlement of the frontier
questions in Central Asia are prooeeding
with, and I hope for an early adjustment.
Negotiations are also iu progress with the
United States for the purpose of exi outing
the findings by the court of arbitration on
the question of seal fisheries in Behring Sea.
Two collisions, aocompanied by 'lamentable loss of life, have ocourred between the
French and Colonial forces in West Africa.
1 await the result of the inquiry whioh has
been instituted in regard to theae deplorable
occurrences iu full confidence they will be
examined in a calm and dignified temper,
which befits two great nations on such an
occasion. %
Gentlemen of the House of Commons:���
The estimates of public servioe for the year
will be found to make a full and adequate
provision for the defence of the Empire.
Recent improvement in tbe state of Ireland has been marked. Agrarian crime baa
been reduced to the lowest point reached in
die last fifteen yrars, A measure will be
submitted to you with the view of a reason-
alile settlement of lhe question, deeply affecting the well being of Ireland.
Bills will be submitted for the amendment of the registration law and the abolition of plural voting in parliamenttry elections, and measures dealing with ecclesiastical establishment in Wales and Scotland
will also be submitted.
There will also be presented to you bills
with the object of equalization of rates in

erinneut in Scotland on the same basis as
that recently accorded to England and
Wales-
You will also be asked to confer on measures for the promotion of conciliation in labor disputes.
Costly Mention of Names.
Quebec, March 12.���In a oase for separation from bed and board, now pending in
the Superior Court here, and in which a well
known citizen complains of his wife's conduct, the former filed his bill of particulars
yesterday The names of four or five very
well known gentlemen are therein mentioned and one of the latter, a Dr. P. Roy, has
taken an action of damages for $10,000
against the plaintiff L. D. O'Dell.
Troubled With Tuberoolosls.
Woodstock, Ont. March 12.���A serious
outbreak of tubercolosis is reported from
Chesterfield. Mr. Willer's herd is affected
and already two heifers have been slaughtered. It is now said four others are
affeoted.
THE LORDS AND COMMONS.
Opening of the Two Houses Lord Salisbury Regrets Mr. Gladstone's Retirement.
London, March 12.���In the House of
Lords, the Earl of Rosebery, speaking to a
motion to approve tbe address in reply to
the speech from the throne,askod the fullest
indulgence of the Peers as he had been
forced into the position he occupied by a
sudden call to replace a man of the noblest,
energies who was a loss not alone to th
L b.ial party, but to the nation.
Lord Salisbury regretted the retirement
of Mr. Gladstone which, he said, was a loss
that would have great influence on the destinies of the nation. The succession of Lord
Rosebery, he said, was perfectly acceptable
seeing that His Lordship had given many
proofs of his great abilities. But he thought
it would have been better if the Government, instead of adhering simply to the
Newcastle programme, had introduced fresh
subjects in to its programme.

The Commons.
London, Maroh 12.���The opening of the
new session of Parliament was a very tame
affair so far as any manifestation of publio
interest was concerned, and, indeed, the
Lords and Commoners seemed to share the
indifference to a large degree. Very few
Peers werj in attendance, and when the
House of Commons was summoned to hear
tho reading of the speech from the throne,
only about fifty members walked to the
House of Lords in response.
A largely attended meeting of the Mc-
Cartbyite wing of the Irish party was called
to order in one of the committee rooms of
the House of Commons at one o'olock this
afternoon to discuss Irish affairs. It is
learned that the entire proceedings of the
meeting was still in session at three o'olock,
all present being at that time ignorant of
the coutents of the Queen's speech or tbe
faot that Lord Rosebery had madj a speech
deolaring his polioy.
In the House of Commons, Sir William
Harcourt elicited prolonged oheers by naming the first measure introduced by the Government, under the new Premier, the registration bill. Hone Secretary Atqui'.h gave
notice of the introduction of a bill to disestablish the Welsh oburch. Mr. Shaw-
Lefevregare notioe of the bill equalizing
London rates and Mr. A. J. Mundella paved
the way for the introduction of a bill providing for the arbitration of labor disputes.
Sir William Haroourt also gave notice of
the Government's intention to submit a bill
granting local control over the liquor traffic.
It was a pity, he Baid, that Home Rule was
not put to the very front. The sooner the
question was decided, the better. If it were
true, that England would resist separation
to the last, the sooner Ireland knew of it,
the better. The Government ought not to
put Hume Rule into the Queen's Bpeeoh year
after year, unless they meant to carry it. In
the House of Commons the address in reply
to the Queen's speech was approved. Sir
William Haroourt admitted that the retire
ment of Mr. Gladstone was regarded by the
Liberal party with feelings of distress and
dismay, but, he aaid, tbe memory ot the
Grand Old Man would remain the greatest
tradition of the House. Though there had
been slight obanges in the Ministry, he said
there would be no ohange in the policy of
the Government or party. Home Rule,
though it had temporarily been put aside,
remained the leading feature of the programme. The financial business was the
most urgent and its legislation must be cou-
oluded by the eud of the month, therefore
the Government must ask the whole time of
the House until then.
Timohy Harrington protest*, d against the
laying aside of Home Rule. Mr Gladstone
had promised the Irish that Home Rule
would be pursued to i In end without cessation. Postponement of the matter, he declared, meant abandonment. Instead of
there being a union of hearts, there would
be an intensified bitterness and feeling of
hatred between the English and Irish
parties, unless Home Rule were made the
first objeet of Parliament. Sir Charles E.
H. Vincent, in a long speeoh, moved an
amendment to the address by representing
to the Queen that tbe depression in trade
and agriculture, the reduction of tbe wages
of workingmen, the thousands of unemployed laborers, and the continuous immigration of aliens, ought to be called to the
attention of Parliament.
Sir Albert Kaye-Hallett, Mr. Fred Garnish and others supported  the amendment.

AUSTRALIAN NEWS.
A Mayor in New South Wales Shot and
Killed Like Harrison at Chioago.
Victobia, March 12. -[Special]���A crime,
which in more than iu one respect,  recalls
the   assasination   of    Carter   Harrison   of
Chicago, is   reported   by    the   Australian
steamer  just arrived, as having been  committed on tbe 12th of February in the little
city of Burford, N. S. W.    The victim was
Wm. Paisley, the Mayor, his slayer being
Wm.  Redtern, the   city   clerk, who   overwhelmed with remorse, or fear, on the com
mission of his dread   crime, took   hia   own
life, by firing four revolver bullets into his
mouth.    For some  time  previous, he  bad
entertained an animosity against the Mayor
and    Aid.     Hennessy,     a    member     of
the      council       board,       for       having
been     instriftnental     iu     reducing     the
salaries of   all civic  employes, that of tbe
city clerk among the rest.    On the morning
of  the   shooting   the   clerk knew that the
Mayor intended to   be early at his offioe in
order to dispose of some accumulated business in connection wiih  a oabmman's shelter whioh he had been  instrumental in having established.   The   clerk   also came   te
his  office, arriving   before   the   Mayor  at
about 8 o'clock, and being apparently hard
at work when Mr. Paisley   bade  him   the
time of day   as  he   passed  into  his room.
The Mayor was soon busy   with his correspondence, nor did he notice what the clerk
was doing until  he   heard   the report ot a
pistol almost at  his   ear and felt the sharp
sting  of   a   bullet   in  his shoulder.    Theat
turning he saw Redfern with hiB revolver in
hand  and   an expression   of  the   utmost
vindiotiveness  in   his   face.   The   Mayor
realized that a deliberate attempt was being
made on his life and at once grappled   with
his assailant, whom he succeeded in disarming.   Dispossessed of   the   revolver,   Red-
fern drew a stiletto and stabbed   bis chief
through the arm.   Then regaining his pistol
he fired two more shots, the Mayor rushing
bleeding from the city hall. A moment later
four other shots were heard,  and it   was
learned that the murderer   had   taken  his
own life also.   The coroner's jury, two days
afterwards, for the tna\ or died of his injuries
a few hours later, added   to   their   verdict
that the murderous clerk was at the time of
the shooting insane and not responsible for
his terrible act.

THE SS. CITY OF PUEBLA.
Sho is Safe In Port Townsend���The Passengers WIU Walt for the Walla Walla.
Pout Townsend, Wash., March 12.���The
steamer Puebla bound from tho Sound <o
Sau Franoisco, which broke a crank pin on
Saturday morning, was brought here this
afternoon. The vessel was forty miles south
of Destruction Island at the time of the accident aud drifted in a heavy swell for 24
hours before assistance came. She carried
nearly one hundred passengers who probably will await the sailing of the Walla
Walla on the II h. Repairs to the
maohinery will probably be made here.
San Francisco, March 12.���The Umatilla
on her last voyage, lost a couple of blades of
her propeller off Destruction Island and had
to be repaired, when she reached San Franoisco Gangs of men had to work on her
day and night in order to get her away on
time. The Umatilla was disabled by oue of
the piles that h.d broken away from the raft
being towed to San Francisco for the foundation of the new ferry buildings. The ohances
are that the Puebla was also caught by a
floating l**g and not only lost the blades of
her propeller, but snapped her shaft. In
that event it will either have to he docked
at Esquimalt or towed to Sin Francisco for
repairs. Wheu Goodall, Perkins & Co.
heard of the breakdown of the Puebla, they
went to work to arrange matters. It was
at first intended to plaoe the passengers on
the steamer Mexico and bring them to San
Francisco. The latter vessel arrived at
Puget Sound from Alaska only this morning
and it was found impossible to get her
ready in time. No other steamer was available, ao the 140 men, women and children
on the Puebla will have to wait for the
regular steamer Walla Walla, whioh leaves
Viotoria on the 14th.
Montreal, March 12.���The Board of Directors of the C. P. Railroad met this morning in their monthly meeting in the board
room at the general offices. Business was
of a routine character.
Plantagenet, Ont , March 12.���Francis
Bernard waa fatally stabbed by Joseph Laf-
leur at Clarence Cieek, Russell County, on
Saturday night. The stabbing was the culmination ot a quarrel which originated in
Bassinet's hotel. When Lafleur left for
home he was followed out of the hotel by
Bernard end another person. The row was
started afresh and Lafleur drew a knife and
stabbed Bernard to the heart, death being
almost instantaneous. Drotb, the third
parly, was also badly cut ou the hand and
arm. Lafleur has been arrested and is now
iu custody awaiting the result of the inquest. Clarence Creek is about 40 miles
down the river from Ottawa.
Insurgent Da Gama Surrenders.
Washington, D.C , March 12.���The State
Department received two important despatches from Minister Thompson at Rio
this evening. The first oue stated that
Admiral Said -rha Da Gama had offered,
through! the Portuguese naval commander,
tn suirender on condition that he and his
followers should be guaran teed safety. This
message w as brought to President Peixoto
by the Portuguese officer in person.
Peixoto's reply is not given, but it is
inferred from the second despatch of
Minister Thompson received two hours later
than the first, that the terms were favorably
received. According to the second despatch, Admiral DaGama had left his ahip
and gone on board the Portuguese vessel as
an asylum. Secretary Gresham understands from the despatches that the war has
virtually ended and is gratified that the result has been reached in time to avoid
further bloodshed. Minister Mendonica
said to-night that he had received information fully in accord with those of the State
department but giving no further particulars. 	
Britain Helping Ont Amerioa.
Washington, D.C, March 12.���The State
Department has received a cablegram from
Minister Baker conveying a message from
the consul at Groytown to the effect that
the Briiish marines have been withdrawn
from <ho Mdsquito territory and that affairs
are now quiet there. While the department
refuses to divulge any further information
onthesubjeot, it is understood that Secretary
Gresham ts satisfied that American interests
have not been jeopardized to anything
like the extent indicated in the first alarming rumors that were published a week ago.
Representations have already been made to
the department that the action of Great
Britain was not intended to cnuse ���ncern
on tho part of the Uuited States, but simply
to protect the interests of American as well
as Bntish subjects iu case the native Indians
should become incensed at, the Nicaraguans
and uegiu hostilities. Although the administration has proceeded cautiously, it
has nevertheless been prompt and positive
in asserting the strong interest it took in
he affairs of the Mosquito Coast. Early in
January, upon the first warning from the
American consul at Greytown, that the
Indians would probibly protest against the
action of Nicaragua in oocupying their
territory ns a precaution against possible incursions from Honduras, the Kearsage was
despatched to the scoue under instructions
to protect American interests in the oanal,
and iu the neighboring oountry. The mission of the Kearsage was officially made
known to Great Britain and when the vessel
was wrecked, and no other American ship
was available for the purpose, it is said the
British forces were virtually acting in the
interests of the United States when they
undertook to fulfil the errand of the Kearsage. 2

Vallejo, Cal., March 12.���Mare Island
navy yard is livelier than it has been for 20
years past. Work is being rushed,particul-
ary on the Monterev, Alert and Mouodnerk.
A large force of machinists and boiler malt
ers are at work at ono time on the two first,
named vessels. The authorities look for an
even greater rush between now and April
1st,when the Behring Sea patrol is supposed
to be in readiness. Up to the present only
the Mohican and Alert have been repaired.
Quite a fleet has been ordered from different
parts of the world for this duty, aud these
vessels will require more or less repiirs at
the island before going north
Attorney's at War.
Fresno, Cal., March 12 ���Shortly after 1
o'clock to day, t fight occurred in front of
the Grand Central Hotel, between XV, XV.
Foote, attorney for Heath, and John Mears,
witness for the prosecution. Both gentlemen are irom Sau Francisco, and Mears is a
nephew of Judge Holmes of this city. The
trouble grew out of some remarks Mears
alleged Foote had made about him. The lie
was passed, and Mears shoved Foote back
about 6 feet. W. J. Grady stepped be-
ween them, but when Grady stepped aside
Mears shook his fist in a threatening manner. Foote said to an officer: "ArreBt
that man or I will kill him." Sheriff Scott
and a deputy took Meais away. The affair
created much excitement and more trouble
is feared.
Port Angeles Looking Up.
The progressive ci'y of I ort Angeles is
putting in a $60,000 electric light plant.
The works of the private company which
lighted the streets have been acquired by
the city. A three foot pipe will be laid
from a dam erected outside the city and
water brought in to operate tbe plant,
which is for street lighting and commercial
purposes, and als to supply power for manufacturing purposes. Port Angeles is well
lighted.
An Unfavorable Comparison.
City Treasurer Frank Hucheney, now in
San Francisco for his health, writes from
there that the lazzaronifof Naples are not a
marker in point of numbers and persistency
in comparison with those, found in the great.
Pacifio metropolis. He says that oue cannot
step out of doors without being beseiged by
beggars of all manner of appearance. Hani
times is the cry heard on every quarter, yet
"two-bit," saloons, in which 25 cents for a
lemoini'le is exacted, continue to flourish in
that once prosperous city.

SAMUEL M. ROBINS, Superintendent
The First Vast ol Coal.
Though ooil had been employed for centuries in tbe m��nuf*otuctt of salt on lhe
shores of the British ooal fiel Is, wood had
hitherto continued to be the fuel of the inland salt woiks. The use of coal at Nmt-
wioh, Cheshire, is mentioned as u novelty in
1656; and, according to the "Contemporary
Review," at Droitwich, Cheshire, wood fuel
and leaden pans were in uax up till 1601. Iu
this era sea salt manufacture was iu the
zenith of its prosperity. But the subn'i'u-
tion of coal for wood in the inland salt,
which took place accidentally, aidfd by the
discovery of rock, led to the gradual decline
and final extinction of the ninnu'ii<"ti,"e of
Bait on the roast. The ouly trt,ces now remaining of this onoe flourishing industry
exist in such names as Howdonpans on the
Tyne, Prestonpans on the Forth, Saltcoats
in Ayrshire and Saltpans in Arran and Kin-
tyre.
In no branch of industry was the scarcity
of wood more keenly felt than in the smelting of metalliferous ores. Continued i Hurts
to accomplish this with coal began immediately after the accession of James I, and
were persevered in throughout the seventeenth ceuiury. But for a long period the
new fuel proved highly in ti <totft bis, and
scheme after scheme ended in failure and
disappointment.
After 80 years of oft repealed trials the
tantalizing problem remained unsolved.
Wood and charcoal still held tho field in the
smelting furnaces and all hope of ever seeing coal substituted for them had well nigh
died out. In 1686 Sir John Pettus, in his
"Essays on Works Metallick,1' concluded
his observations regarding sea ooal and pit
ooal with the remark: "These are not useful to metals." The unpromising prospect,
however, soon began to brighten. Immediately after the revival of lead and copper
mining, whioh took place about 1692��� having probably been more or leas in abeyance
since the interruption caused by the civil
wars, when���
The fisher left his skiff to rock
On Tamar's glittering waves;
The rugged miners rushed to war
From Mendip's sunless oaves���
These ores oame to be smelted with coal.
The extraction of silver from lead with coal
, was accomplished by a Mr. Lydal in 1697,
and the same individual seems 'o have been
the fiist to successfully use uual iu the
smelting of tin in 1706. The ores of iron
proved more refractory, no substantial and
permanent success in smelting them with
ooal being obtained till near the middle of
the tiglitii century, when the manufacture
ot charcoal iron had dwindled to very small
proportions���in faot, was dying out for
want of tuel. It then at length became an
accomplished fact at the Coalbrookdale
Ironworks in Shropshire. The success was
at first ascribed to the Shropshire ooal, but
probably the employment of a strong blast
had a great deal to do with it. Fiom this
the coal became the life of the iron manufacture. The oi-devant drooping trade
rapidly revived, and ihe latter part of the
eighteenth century saw coal iron furnaces in
successful operation throughout the United
Kingdom.

THE SILVER QUESTION.
There seems soma probability that Germany will shortly declare in favor of bimetallism. There is a ourrenoy commission
sitting at Berlin at present, and the first
subject of discussion this week will be the
proposal of Dr. Arendt, that Germany summon at once an international monetary conference. Dr. Arendt's idea is that the conference should discuss a plan to establish a
system of international bi-metallism, with a
ratio of 15$ to 1, Germany in the meantime
resuming the extensive ooinage of Bilver.
Dr. Arendt's proposals, it is said, are ridiculed by the mono-metallists. This is much
to be regretted, for there is reason to think
that England would not again stand in the
way, to prevent the international remono-
tization of silver nn a fair li-isis, if another
monetary conference were called. Since the
last international conference on the subject
was held, affairs have changed considerably.
Mr. Gladstone, the ablest and most influential opponent of M-metallism, has resigned,
and there iB much probability that Lord
Rosebery's Government, as the result of the
next general election in Great Britain, may
be compelled to resign also. A Con J
servative Government would then buc-
ceed to power, under the leadership
of Lord Salisbury and Mr. Balfour. The
latter is an acknowledged bimetallist, and
the former is at least not a declared mono-
metallist. There is however, a strong probability that Lord Salisbury's Government
would support the international remonetization of silver, if a satisfactory plan were
agreed upon by a monetary conference.
The threatened bankruptcy of the Government of India, owing to the continued fall
in value of the rupee, which nothing but
the international remonetization of silver
will stop, would also influence the action of
England if another monetary conference
were called. There is therefore good reason
to think that such a conference would now
be successful in restoring silver to its ancient place as a mo *ey meul. It would
certainly be ao, we think, if ht fnre the Conference met a general election in Great.
Britain had restored the C'*oservativea to
power. Tha internal ional remonetization
of silver would be of the greatest benefit to
silver mining in this province, which just
now is languishing, owing to the fall in
price of silver bullion. At 60 cents an ounce
for the white metal, which is its present
market price, the best silver mines will
scarcely p ��y the cost of working them, and
the poorer class will not pay at all; they
can only be worked at a loss. The interna,
tional remonetization of silver would raise
its prioe to some extent and keep it steady.
It would also raise the price of farm produce
all over the world, and put a stop to the
existing egricultural depression.
CANADA'S COAL RESOURCES.
A correspondent of the London Times,
who appears to hate been sent to the Dominion specially to collect reliable information
regarding its ies urces is lining g md service
to Canada in lis '<" * <��� �� in thnt, widely circulated and influential journal. The third
letter of the series he hus contributed is
devoted to t he coal resources of the Dominion. The coal deposits of Canada, he
���ays, make its relation to the empire one of
extraordinary interest, aod he claims that
this iB Hue, whether regard is had te the
interests of commerce or to the maintenance
of England's naval power. Tne ooal de-
posits of Canada, to which tha Times' correspondent especially directs attention, are
those of Nova Scotia and Cape Breton on
the east, and of Vancouver Iseland on the
west. Both of these coal fields he considers
of essential importance to the commercial
interests and naval supremacy of the empire, and alike specially adapted for great
ooaling stations for the Imperial fleet. The
correspondent discusses first the importance
of the Nova Scotia coal deposits. Projecting far out into the Atlantio, Nova Sootia
occupies a commanding position on the continent of North Amerioa, from a maritime
point of view. Here at the most northern
port on the continent, which is open both
summer and winter, England has fixed the
great naval station of Halifax, closely connected by rail with the coal mines of Nova
Sootia which now turn out a million tons of
eoal per annum. Further north ii the island of Cape Breton, where the Frenoh built
the fortress of Louisburg, as the best point
from which to guard the route of the St.
Laurence, and protect France's commercial
interests on this continent. The fortress of
Louisburg is gone, and that of Halifax, in
British hands, now takes its place; but the
coal mines of Cape Breton, adjacent to the
fine harbours of the island, remain.
These mines now yield about a million
tons of coal annually, of excellent quality
for steaming and other purposes. The
mouths of the pits are in some cases close to
the shore, and aB the mines are carried far
out under the water, a ship may be loaded
directly over the spot from which the coals
are taken. This fact shows the ex* reme
convenience of Cape Breton as a coaling
station. The full significence of these coal
resources to a great maritime power, says
the Times' correspondent, can only be fully
understood when we reflect, firat, upon the
increasing importance of the St. Lawrence
as a food route, and secondly, that with the
exception of what might be temporarily
stored at Bermuda and the West India stations, these are the only coal supplies to
which British ships have the national right
of access in time of war along the whole
Atlantic coast of America." As things
stand at present, Great Britain is the only
maritime power which has an adequate
supply of coal on both sides of the Atlantic.
Her supply on the west side of that ocean is
drawn wholly from Canada. This is one
main fact which proves the immense importance of Canada to the British empire, and
to the full comprehension of it by the
British people the articles of the Times' oorrespondent on Canada will largely contribute. As stated above, the mines of Nova
Scotia and Cape Breton now yield about
two million tons of coal per annum, l'he
consumption of Nova Scotia coal in Quebec
amounted to 775,000 tons in 1891. All the
Government railways in the Dominion, of
which 1,397 miles are in operation, are
worked with Nova Scotia coal. Most of the
other railways in the lower provinces, as far
west as Montreal, draw their coal supplies
from the same source.
The Times' correspondent next directs
the attention of the readers of that journal
to Canada's coal supplies on the Pacific.
After pointing out the distinctly inferior
quality of the coal yielded by the
American mines on Puget Sound,
the correspondent continues: "It is
only when we cross the boundary line into
Canadian territory that in Vancouver
Island, the site of Britain's only naval station on the western coast of America, we
meet with large deposits of good steaming
coal." We cannot do better than quote the
correspondent's own words respecting the
superiority of Vancouver Island coal, and the
measures which he thinks Great Britain
ought to take for the proteclion of her coal
supplies on this coast.    He says:
"The superiority of this coal is proved
beyond question by the published tables of
the War Department oi the United States,
in which are given the comparative values
for steam-raising purposes of tho various
fuels found on the Pacific coast. In this
statement���certainly not a partial one���the
Nanaimo coal is rated far above any found
in Washington, Oregon or California. The
annual output of the mines at Nanaimo and
Wellington has now risen beyond a million
tons. At Nanaimo the prinoipal mine
is direotly upon the shore, and the galleries
are being run out far under the arm
of the sea which divides Vanoouver Island
from the Mainland, bo that here, as at Cape
Breton, ships of heavy tonnage take in coal
while moored directly over the place from
which it is obtained. In either oase the facility for easy and rapid coaling could not
well be excelled. The very facility of ap
prnach creates a responsibility. When ships
uuii Ball io f mn the ouert sea and comu ui
reclly lo the place where large ttorea uf coal
are ordinarily accumulated, it is clear that
Ihese stores must have some meaus of de
fence if they are nut to fail iuto the hands
of the first comer. The full appreciation of
the value of these coaling positions ought to
secure for them some adequate defence, such
as they do not at present possess. Cafbada
ia now co-operating with Great Britain iu
providing adequate defence for the naval
station at Esquimalt, the importance of
which was well illustrated when I was there
by the presence in the fine graving dock of
the Warspite, undergoing repairs
after her serious mishap. Doubtless
Esquimalt must be the main reliance for the
safety of the fleet in the North Pacifio, but
some subsidiary protection seems imperative
for the security of actual coaling ports like
Nanaimo, if they are to be safe against sud
den attack. Full and joint provision for
this may only be possible when the motherland and the colonies have arrived at a clear
understanding in regard to the distribution
of national responsibility. The defence,
however, ought certainly to be given, and it
would be wiser to plan carefully and com
plete in time of peace what would of neceB'
sity have to be supplied hastily under the
pressure of any threat ot war. Such a question would be fair matter for deliberation
and decision at a colonial conference such as
has been proposed."
It is very satisfactory to know that the
vast value of Canada to Great Britain and
to the empire at large has been brought
thus prominently and intelligently before
the British people in the columns of the
leading journal. It is also satisfactory to
know that Nanaimo's olaims, and the need
there is of constructing defenoes for its protection, have not been forgotten. Never
before, we believe, have Canada and its resources been so well described in any Britiah journal, as by this correspondent. We
regret that our space will not permit us to
follow his interesting remarks on the coal
fields of the Rooky Mountains and the plains
beyond. The whole article is literally
crammed with information which we find it
difficult to condense.

It was feared that a large defecit in the
Imperial revenues would have to be faced
this year. It is now announced that the
deficit will be but little more than ��750,000,
owing to the inorease of the revenue,
especially of the part produced by the in-
come tax. It is proposed next year to make
this balance good by raising the death
duties, and increasing the tax on whisky
and beer.

��
A Hint to Mr. Caple.
The lecturer at the Y. M. 0. A. on Saturday night was a living exponent of the faot
(hat a little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
Among the many exhibitions of half ignorance, he mentioned that Edingurgh Castle
was a picturesque ruin and implied that the
haggis was a kind of oake. This sort of expository is an insult to an intelligent audience, aud, although it may pass in the
mainland cities, Mr. Norman Caple should
read up a little before he ventures before s
Nanaimo audience again. Another very
bad feature in the lecturer's remarks was a
proneness to air his own politios, which
were entirely outsidb the provinoe of the
entertainment. If Mr. Caple takes this
crltioism as it is intended, it will aid him
in any future work of the same kind.
A Breaeb of Citizenship.
It appears that the management of the
Poultry Exhibition recently held in this
city was guilty of a great breach in citizenship. After canvassing for subscriptions
from the citfren traders for tho purpose of
presenting prizes in the form of medals and
a oup, the management deliberately sent
Eist to a manufacturing house to procure
these trophies. It surely requires no comment to emphasize this proceeding as being
unwarrantable and unjustifiable. Oue of
our own traders should have been commissioned to procure the goods through the
usual trade channels. If the management
of the society resorts to such measures in
future it is to be feared that it will not
gain much local support from the tradesmen. It was a distinct mistake in tactics
which in the future it would be well to
avoid.
Rampant Reform.
According to the Opposition organ in this
city, "A meeting of Northfield eleotors, opposed to the present Provincial Government,
was held in the K. of P. Hall yesterday
morning (Sunday). Mr. T. R. Mclnnes,
president of the Nanaimo Reform Club, and
Mr. Angus McKenzie were present from
town."
The platform recently promulgated by
the Reform Club here was discussed. In
view of this, the platform is evidently
minus a plank. It should be immediately
added that they favor Sunday aB a political
day, when meetings are to be held and
political questions should be discussed.
Then it would deserve the title of the Rampant Reform Club.
PROVINCIAL  COMMENTARY.
The last number of the Mission News
trips up on the subjeot of twins. It says:
"Born to the wife of J. B. Marquette last
Wednesday morning a pair of male twins.
Both mother and children are doing nicely.
These are the first twins born in Mission."
Why not call it a quartette?
In referring to the recent assault ease in
Victoria of Snowden vs. Wolley, the Prov-
nee says:
"Mr. Clive Phillips-Wolley has lately
added to the mountaineering reputation he
aohieved ten years ago amongst the peaks of
the Caucasus by making his mark on the
Summit of Snowdon.
The London Times in commenting on the
Paoific inter-colonial postal and telegraph
conference held at Wellington, N.Z., during
last week, says the conference resulted in a i
distinct advance toward realiziog the project of connecting Canada and the Austra-'
lian colonies by telegraph. The Times advises England's support of the project.
A despatch yesterday from Comox says
that a large mass meeting was held there on
Saturday evening to discuss railway matters.
All parts of the distriot were represented
and great enthusiasm prevailed. A series
of strong resolutions were adopted calling
upon the Government to give aid and encouragement to the extension of the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway, conditionally
upon the road being built so far North aB to
tap the heart of the Comox settlement and
best accommodate its traffic.
The Columbian of New Westminster has
the following: "The postoffices throughout
the District are more or less hampered these
times by piles of the Colonist newspaper,
which have accumulated since the present
session of the Legislature commenced. The
Colonist since i hen haB been sent to the address nf nearly every voter in the Distriot,
on politiosl missionary service. In some of
the postollioi'S there aie piles of the lefused
Colonists three and four feet high." The
Columbian can only know this by a breach
of official duty on the part of the postmasters. This seems lo be a nice case f**r an
inquiry.
All arrangements had been made for the
marriage of David Douglas and Miss
Georgina DeBeok, second daughter of
Howard L. Dt Beck, at New Westminster,
on Thursday evemng.but three hours before
the happy event the bridegroom was arrested by Sheriff Armstrong on a capias
issued at the instance of the Lang Tanning
Co., of Toronto. It was alleged that
Douglas intended to leave the country,
leaving various creditors behind, amongst
them the above company. Through the
coxatesfht the Sheriff, the marriage ceremony was not interfered with, the groom
afterwards surrendering himself to the
officer.
The San Diego Sun of February 22 says:
One of the pupils for the season ia wintering
at the "Josephine" with his mother. He is
the son of Captain Burrowes of the British
warship Royal Arthur. The boy is ten
years old and a favorite with his fellows.
When he heard the talk about saluting the
flag, he aaid to Professor Baldwin, "But my
flag ii the Britiah flag." The professor said
that was right, he should be loyal to his
flag, and if he wished to bring one to make
his salute to he cou'd do so. Therefore a
red flag appeared yesterday near the Stars
and Stripes, and when the pupils repeated
"I give my band and my heart to my
oountr���oney oountry, one language, one
flag," the English boy's hand pointed loyally
towards the British Jack.

The Long Expected Sidewalk.
The residents on Victoria road are lookirg
anxiously for that long promised sidewalk,
and much surmising is entertained as to
whether it is to be a four plank or a four
foot one. In either case it is regarded by
the older people as a very narrow one, but
from the way it is received by the younger,
we predict that it will be a favorite promenade. It is said that some of our city
fathers have not forgotten when they were
young and in walking on a narrow sidewalk
of a dark evening, when in order to protect
their best girl from falling, they  put   their
arm around her well, they had to hold
safely, no matter how.

DAJNTY ACCESSORlta

Pretty Affectation*.
Notwithstanding tho bard times, ot
which most persons are complaining, milady's dress throughout is moat luxurious,
In witness whereof oue baa only to pofnt to
such minor details as petticoats, stockings
and shoes. Nothing is too dainty or too
costly for the lady of the period. She asserts her sex's privilege for any kind of extravagance and delights in any novelty
that adds to her sense of luxury and refinement.
Those women who have old lace by them,
or indeed lace of any kind, black or white,
have an unusual opportunity for display-
tog it to the best advantage, for it is intro-

dnced in every imaginable fashion. The
laco flounces -ivliieli used to be worn are
now placed at tlie edge of the skirts, often
festooned with ribbon -Sows. They also
are introduced round the hips, while triple flounces are made to cover the entire
skirt. AlindSt any shaped piece of lace appears to be adapted to the shoulders and
to the capes, whioh are of every form, but
mostly surround the yokes or taper from
the waist over the shoulders.
Very dressy and at the same time feminine are the lace Miffs and collars which
render even a plain dress picturesque and
attractive. In the cut is shown a particularly graceful affair in velvet and pearl
lace. As may be seen by stuclyi:r.*;theilhis-
tration, tbe three cornered lace llouuce is
beaded by a straight collar composed of
two folds of velvet, finished with an earlike
bow at the back, aud tho small tippet fluted
on t he shoulders.
The fancy continues for translucent materials, such as laco grenadine, gauze and
the like, in black, to be worn over colored
Bilk foundations. These affectations after
airy frills and laces is in charming contrast
with the masculine effects gained in the
strictly tailor mado suits.
THE MASONIC ORDER.
ItrOriBta and Early History, AmoorcVmmj to
Various Account*.
Some Masonic writers claim that the Ma-
���onic order was founded in Solomon's time,
���lenving its origin from the "Dionysiao
���fraternity" of architects and builders enraged in the construction of temples and
theuters, a band of whom worked upon the
temple. A commonly accepted origin is
found in the association of masons and
builders during the middle ages. These
associations hod i�� regular government and
ranged from couutry to country wherever
they found churches to build. They enjoyed the special favor of the popes and
were exempted from taxes and other burdens, from which comes the name "Free-
Masons." Men of eminence, both kings and
prelates, joined tbe order, and the practical
feuture finally fell iuto abeyance.
Some writers claim tbat Masonry had its
origin in KMfi, being founded by an Eug-
linhmaii named Asbmole, from signs and
symboli borrowed from the Knights Templars ai'd Rosioruciaus. In 16(50 Sir Christopher Wren was appointed grand master
of England, so that it must have had several lodges. In 1702 St. Paul's lodge of
London was the only one or about the only
one in England, nnd this lodge threw open
tbe doors to other professions. In 1717
there were four lodges, and these formed
the grand lodge. As thus organised it was
transplanted to tho continent. The first,
lodge of America is said to be tbat organized in 3oston in 173a

Among garments of special, import are
those for riding, boating, yachting, lawn
tennis, the bicycle, climbing, hunting and
now golf. I.et no one conceive that these
costumes are interchangeable, except perhaps a lawn tennis costume may take part
in golf. On the contrary, each has some
special distinguishable quality fondly conceived to be essential.
The colors in almost all dresses for athletic sports are limited to cream, blue,
brown and gray. The assimilation of these
with the browns and grays of the earth
and the blue of the skj Is chosen with thnt
Inherent sense of the fitnesti of things that

in the cruder states of civilization tbat we
choose colors harshly and inappropriately.

Stories of Great tnck.
Captain Ben Ferguson, collector on the
ferryboat Hite, is always reminiscent.
The other day the captain said to me:
"You seldom hear of a man making
$90,000 in one night in these days, but 1
know of such an instance. Mr. Colo-
man, who ran a foundry on Washington
���street, near Brook, did it. In relljftiiJg it
to me he exhibited no delight whatever.
His words wore: 'Captain, I made $90,-
000 last night; went to bed early nnd
slept 60undly. You know the price of
iron wont up, and fortunately 1 had
enough on band, which I lniJ purabK&fd
at a low figure, to net mo n for: nno.' As
Captain Ferguson concluded the story
he told another of how Dennis Long
made $200,000 because tho price of iron
dropped out of sight. It was just at a
time when Mr. Long had failed in business and told Captain Ferguson that he
was $400,000 in debt.
"Well," said the captain, "Dennis Long
went up to Indianapolis to bid on the
construction of the oity waterworks.
Xfeare was but one other bidder, and
Mr Long was awarded the contract.
Not long after iron began fluctuating,
a_& Long's estimate having been made
on tbe basis that iron would advance
still more in price, it already being high
at the time, he of course found that its
it decreased he was reaping a golden
harvest. Well, iron went down and
down. When it stopped, it was worth
hardly anything. Mr. Long, as I said,
mode $200,000 by this, and he's been
making money ever since."���Louisville
Courier-Journal.
Mrs. W. K. Clifford, the English writer,
was asked to put her autograph in one of
her works to be sold at a bazaar. She wrote
above her name, "This is a bad little book
