VICTORIA   CRESCENT
London, March 6.���The Duke of Devonshire, iu the course of his speech at Yeovil
this eveniug, referring to Mr. (Jladslone's
retirement, said that it was a source of great
satisfaction, thut in (pile of his age aud infirmity, Mr. Gladstone had not outstayed
his parliamentary reputation. The image
presented by Mr. Gladstone would never be
impaired; his picture would never be effaced.
He had passed from the scene in the plenti-
tude of his strength and greatness, and
neither for good nor for evil could his place
be filled. He had left to his successors a
legucy of unsettled questions Oue of 1 he.e
questions was Home Rule, which would
hang as a millstone arouud the
neck of his party for many years.
In his laat speech he had imposed a
new burden upon his party, the
quarrel with the House of Lords. The only
real ground for the quarrel with the Lords
was the rejection of the Home Rule Bill.
The other grounds alleged were absurd, aod
the Earl of Rosebery would not take them.
If the Government was inclined to hang up
on Home Rule, continued the speaker, the
Liberal-Unionists would be in no hurry to
displace them. But the Liberal-Unionists
would be uncompromising in their opposition to Home Rule, and especially if the
Government attempted to pass a gerrymandering Registration Bill. Otherwise,
they c ntemplated no factious opposition to
Loid Rosebery, who there was uo reason to
believe, was indifferent to the interests,
honor and greatness of England at home
and abroad.
When the House of Commons reassembles,
Mr. Labouchere will move an amendment to
the address in reply to the speech from the
throne, demanding the introduction of a
bill for confirming legislation of the House
of Commons, praying that, in the case of
bills rejected by the House of Lords, Royal
assent be given afier the bills have been
again passed by the HouBe of Commons.
John Redmond, leader of the Parnellites,
Will move ah amendment to the address in
favor nf granting amnesty to the imprisoned
dynamiters.
The Daily News says that Mr. Gladstone
offered a peerage to Mr. Armitstead, whose
guest he was at Biarritz, and that Mr
Armitstead declined the honor.
Henry Labouchere in Truth disavows confi
dence in the new Premierate, but saya that
nevertheless he is willing to support any
sound measure proposed by the Government. He doubts whether Lord Rosebery
is prepared for a sufficiently drastic treat-
men of the House of Lords. "If a satisfactory assurance does not appear in the
Queen's speech," he says, "the Radicals
must make a stand. The difficulty might
be nettled by allowing the Peers to seek
election to the House of Commons."
Rosebery Occupies the Official Residence
London, March 6.���The offices occupied
by Mr. Gladstone as Premier, were formally
taken possession of by Lord Rosebery this
afternoon. The new Premier was cordially
greeted by the retiring Prime Minister,
upon his arrival at the rooms in the official
residence in Downing street.

The German   Minister of War Supports
William.
BERLIN, March 6. In the Reichstag today, there was au interesting debate on the
Military Supply Bill. In the course of the
discussion, General Brousart von Schelleo.
dortl, minister of war, took occasion to defend Geneial vou K rckohoff from the
atlacks of the Socialists. General von
Schellendnrff declared that if General von
Kirkchofl had been tried by a jury instead
of being tried by a military court whose
proceedings wero secrot, he would have
been acquitted, Although he had been
found gmliv aud sentenced to imprisonment
by the military court, tho Emperor had
exerolaed his right of olemenoy, and not
only pardoned General vou Kirkohoff, but
hid lies* owed a decoration upon him. "The
prerogatives and rights of the Piussian
orowu," he declared, "are uot
subject to diBCUBsion in the Reichstag, and I hero piotest against
such interference. (Cheers.) Least of all
he said, the Socialist*! should touch the
Crown's prerogatives. The time might come
when they would need the king's cleneucy.
Herr Lanseinann protested against the
language used by General Von Sohellendorf.
If Geneial Von Kirchoff was justified in the
murderous attack he mule ou Heir Harisch,
he Baid, every anarchist was justified in
murderously attacking existing society, all
legal remedies failing. Heir Bebel said that
accordiug to the war minister, the anarchists
were justified in resorting to violence.
General Von Sohelleudoi ITs advocacy of
General Von Kirchotfs cause and defence of
his action was what might be expected in a
military state that waB st ill semi-barbarous,
but it had a strange sound in the legislative
halls of an enlightened nation.

A Ten Years Treaty.
Berlin, March 6.���The committee in the
Reichstag in charge of the German-Russian
Treaty, to-day rejected the amendment offered by the Conservatives, limiting to one
year the time when either party to the convention shall be entitled to give one years'
notice of its abrogation. The amendment
was rejected by a vote of 15 to 10. The
committee theo adopted a number of
articles including fixing the term of duration of the treaty at ten years, as originally
proposed.
The committee will probably conclude its
ni*lings in consideration of t1 e treaty tomorrow. Count Heibert Bismarck, in the
regular session of the Reichstag demanded
of Count Von Doenhoff, Conservative, an
explanation of the Tageblatfs statement
alleged to have been made on his (DoenhofTs)
authority, that Prince Bismarck had declared that the rejection of the treaty would
inevitably be followed by a Russo-German
war. Count Von Doenhoff admitted that
he did not speak with the authority of
Prince Bismarck, but that he had based his
statement merely upon hearsay. He had
learned, he said, that Herr Krupp had
heard Dr. Schweninger say that he had
heard Prince Bismarck make a statement to
the efldc* tl at the rejection of the Rut-so
German treaty would be followed by a
Ru-iso German war.
Commercial Cable Co.'s Directors.
Nkw York, March 6.���At a meeting of
the Board of Directors of the Commercial

officers were re-elected: John XV. Mackay,
president; George G. Ward, A. B. Char.dler,
Chas. R. Hosmer, vice-presidents; E C.
Piatt, treasurer; J. 0. Stevens, secretary.
Rockefeller Doesnt Want the World.
New York, March 6.���S. C. T. Dodd,
general solicitor of the Standard Oil Co.,
said to-day that there was no truth in the
���tory that an agreement for a division of the
world's territory had been reached by the
Standard Oil Co. and the NoebeU, who are
supposed to oontrol tbe Russian oil fields.
There was nothing of the sort in prospect,
for it would be an impossibility.
Preparing for Michigan Day.
San Francisco, March 6.���The arrangements fur th>* special observance of Michigan
Day on Monday March 12th at the Exposition are progressing satisfactorily to all concerned and there is every reason to believe
that I hia, the second State day at the Exposition, will be a memorable one. The
Michigan Committee has asked H. Mc-
Garvie, manager for Col. Boone, to act as
grand marshal of a parade of the concessionaires at. 11 o'clock on the morning of that
day.

Hayes has a plau for il*e celebration of lhe

has in course of preparation a detailed plan
embodying all the important features of the
proposed celebration, which he will soon
lay before the representative men of the
city with a view to the organization of a
committee to arrange the preliminary de-
tails.
Davies' Hawaiian Literature.
San Francisco, March 6.���The brig I.
0. N. Suelo arrived from Kahalui to-day.
She reports nn change in the situation in
the Hawaiian Islands. The Commercial
Advertiser, of February 17th, publishes a
caustic review of letters of T. H. Davies,
guardian of Princess Kaiulaiii. which have
beeu collected and minted in pamphlet
form, and entitled, ' D.vies' Duty is to
Fight." "Literary Performance of the
Queen's ex-Champion Exposed." "He Finds
the Bible was uot for Beheading " The
oritie, by vay of introduction declares:
The literature appearing in those letters
will hereafter consiitn'e the Davies period
of Hawaiian literature. Its immediate object is to hurl the Provisional Government
locomotive off the track of eveuls aud replace it with the somewhat battered and
effete engine styled Monarchy, which was
suddenly sidetracked.	
Important Torpedo Tests.
Newport, R.I., Maroh 6.���A sixth trial
was made to-day in the submarine pressure
tests now in progress at the torpedo stati* n.
aud human life would not have been endangered if it had been subjected to thu
test. The di-iisnce between the miue of 100
pounds of guncotton and the shell containing animal life, was 100 feet. The explosion
was perfect, a vast volume of water being
lifted, and when the expei imenters returned
to the vicinity of the explosion, the water
was black with mud. The pressure exerted
upon the shell, in accordance with the
figuring by General Abbott's formula,
.147 pounds, the strength of the
shell being finally reckoned to be 81 p minis
per square inch. The shell tfas not damaged,
neither was the life within. A second trial
will bx made at 74 feet. It is * lie opinion
that firings can be made much closer, on the
theory that the pressure of an explosion is
more in a vertical line, alao that, perhaps,
the shell may not collapse until the distance
between the mine and shell ia greater between t he mine and the aurface of the
water, whioh is 15 feet. If thia be oorrect,
tbe utility of aubmarine warfare ia muoh
greater than generally supposed.
a  Purse  to  Influence
Opium Tariff.
Victoria, March 6 ���[Spi-cial]���It is reported here that a big purse is being raised
in Victoria by opium cookers for a crusade
at Washington to have the high tariff on
prepared opium retained. The aame
amugglers succeeded wheu the McKinley
Bill was passed in getting a $12 rate through.
Ti'is rate is practically prohibitory of the
importation and waa intended to be an aid
to the Customs who cover large boundaries
with small facilities. If the cookers are
successful they will make more money.
The reduction to the Wilson tariff of $6 will
cause the direct importation of the drug
from China.
Gave Birth to a Quintette.
Kittani.m;, Ont., March 6.���Five child
ren were born to the wife of Roseberger, a
farmer near nere yesterday. Three girls
and two boys.
Protecting Big Game.
Ottawa, March 5 ���The Minister of the
Interior will introduce a bill at the next
session of Parliament designed to protect
the fur bearing and game animals in the unorganized districts of the Northwest. The
non-treaty Iudians are now in the habit of
slaughtering such animals aB the wood buffalo and moose out of season.
Mail Clerks on Ocean Liners.
New York, March 6.���With the arrival
at New York on Saturday last of the
steamship Saale, a new plan of handling
foreign registered mail destined for Boston,
Baltimore, Chicago, Philakelphia, Cleveland, St. Louis, San Francisco and Washington was inaugurated, one which will
likely prove of decided advantage to business mon in the cities named. Shortly
after the delivery of the mail bags at the
postoffice building in this city.the registered
mail brought by the Saale, and which had
been made up in separate pouches for
each of these eight large ciiies by the
sea postal clerks working on board the
steamship, was on its wuy to itsdestinatioo.
This method of piepaiing registered mall
saved about twelve hours of time usually
lost by reentry and re-billing in the New
York postoffice, and permitted deliveries to
be made in some of the cities on the same
day, where, under the old system, no deliveries would have been made until the following day. The new plan ia the outcome
ot the deteimioation to establish sea post-
offices on each of the steamers running in
the North American and North German
Lloyd lines. The system will be put into
operation upon all the steamers of three
lines as Boon as possible.
President Cleveland's Hunting Trip,
Washington, March 6.���Capt. Evans, of
the Light House Board, who was in charge
of the President's party in his recent trip to
North Carolina, stated that from a sportsman's view, the trip was eminently suscesa-
ful, and almost the very day after reaching
the North Carolina Coast, the entire party
enjoyed excellent shooting. The trip down
the river, Capt. Evans said, was entirely
without incident. A blizzard which
had been threatening Sunday, overtook the
Violet below Fort Washington, and when
Quantico was reached it was deemed prudent io anchor for 'ho night as the storm
was so thick thit the pilot could not see a
ship's length ahead of him. The second
night was spent at Portsmouth, Va.; the
third night at Long Point, N. C; the fourth
night at Croat Sound, N. O.j the fitth and
sixth nigh s at Hatteras; lhe seventh on
ihe re,um trip at Boauoke Marshes; the
eghth night at Long Point; ihe ninth (last
nighl) the vessel ran all night. While lying
at Hatteia^ the president aud party took a
steam launch and visited the neighboring
inlets and lighthouses in the vicinity.
He met a number of the people inhabiting
that section and shook hands with them.
He was treated with the utmost respect and
consideration by all. Mr. Cleveland buckled down to work a few minutes after he
reached the White House. In ten minutes
after he sat down at his desk, he and private secretary Thurher had disposed of a pile
of routine business. Soon after three o'clock
Secretary Carlisle called on the President
and the two had a talk over Treasury
matters. By the President's direction, the
wagon load of game was distributed at the
houses of all the cabinet officers, Private
Secretary Thurber and Captain Evans.
American Yacht Running the Blockade.
Nkw York, March 6.���Tie American
yacht Natalie, which took on board a lot of
cannon, arms and ammunition at Savannah
for the lev-.Unionists of Hayti, is still at
Fortune Island. The Alvena brought the
new- * ��eek ago I hat the Natalie was lying
then , while a Haytian warship was outside
watching for her to come out. The steamer
Andiiomlack, which arrived to-day, confirms the information, aud gives details.
Captain D. E. Taylor of Brooklyn was a
passenger on hoard the Andirondack. He
said he saw the Natalie and I wo warships.
The Andirondack, he said, put iuto the north
sideof Fortune Island. On thesou'lishleof the
narrow slip of land lay thu Natalie not far
from shore, at anchor iu the small harbor.
About 100 yards from her lay the Haj tian
gurflinat Dessalines, keeping close watch
o*er ihe Natalie. On the north side of the
island was another Haytian war vessel, a
large one, which Captain Taylor thought
wtiR the TnuisRant 1' Ouvertnre. It was
here to watch the Natalie and capture her
it sho ventured out on the high seas, or to
take part in the fight should she
engage the Dessalines. The latter is
not a large vessel. The Adirondack waa
in the harbor not above half an hour, but
during that time Captain Selina, commander
of 'he Natalia oame aboard. During a conversation Captain Taylor aaid that he
thought the Natalie could make her eaoape
through the ahoala, where the warships
could not follow, and thua get out to aea.
"Perhapa ahe does not want to eaoape," aaid
Selina. No flag oould be aeen on the
Natalie, but it waa aaid that ahe flew the
United StateB flag. She is now in Britiah
waters, and therefore aafe. Whether tha
Haytian vessela would fire on her while flying the Amerioan flag is not known. 2

Practical Writing.
It is the duty of every one to write so
plainly that the writing can be easily read.
It is business to write rapidly, it is policy
to acquire an elegant style, for it oarrien influence and commands the admiration of the
best taste. The student is drilled in the
correot formation of single lines, to combine

The Highest Authority In America.
Printers Ink, the highest new spuper authority in Amerioa, speaks thus of The
Daily Telegram:
"Did you ever hear of a piece called
Nanaimo? It is on the Island of Vancouver
aud 75 miles from Victoria. If you live in
what you consider an enterprising city and
believe that your local daily paper is first-
class, write to the publisher of The Daily
Tklkuram, Nauaimo, British Columbia, aud
iisk for a sample copy of his paper, and when
you obtain it eompare it with your home
production. Go down and talk with the
publisher about it afterwards, and ask him
why il is that he can't print as good a paper,
or obtain as good a local patronage, or have
his paper as free from dead-head or objectionable advertisements? A useful lesson
may be learned from Nanaimo,"

MR. COTTON'S TRICK.
The News-Advertiser of Vancouver in its
issue of Saturday last published a dispatch
from Victoria, doubtless written by its
managing editor himself, who usually acts
as reporter for the paper at the Provincial
capital when attending the sittings of the
Legislature there, in which is sot forth in a
much-displayed heading the original theory
that the second reading of the Redistribution Bill was forced through by a shameful
trick, the delinquents being of course the
Government. The alleged trick, it says,
"apparently misled the members on the
other side of the House, as the Government
allowed the division bell to ring, and thus
the debate ended." It is not stated what
the trick was, but we suppose it must have
consisted in the Government neglecting to
send round an usher wiih a sharp pointed
���tick to rouse Mr. Cotton and the other
somnolent members of the Opposition to lhe
fact that the bell for the division waB about
to ring, and that they hud better get up
and speak if they intended ever to do so.
But Mr. Cotton had nothing to say after alt
the bluster in his paper for months past
about redistribution, and the wickedness of
the Government in deferring the bill from
last session till the true results of the
census were ascertained. And now, when
the Government has succeeded in passing
the second reading of the bill by a vote of
more than two to one, the self-appointed
leader of the Independent Oppositionists
turns round and whines that the
second reading was carried by a trick, when
he cannot even say what the trick was. A
poorer spectacle never was witnessed in any
legislative chamber than that presented by
the Opposition in the debate on the second
reading of the Redistribution Bill. They
eould neither accept the Bill with grace, nor
oppose it with even decent ability. Most
of them, like Mr. Cotton, took refuge in
silence, and most of them doubtless will
now complain that they had no opportunity
to speak, because the Government had hy a
trick forced on the division. It should be
be understood by the public at, 1 ,rge that a
trick under the circumstances was not possible, that before the division bell is rung
the Speaker in a loud voice must ask the
members three times are they ready, and if
when he does so any member who haB not
yet spoken on the eubject of the division
has a right to rise, and must be heard if he
haB anything to say. Such being the case,
if any Opposition member wished to speak
and did not do so it was his own fault. To
talk under such circumstances of the Bill
being forced through by a trick is simply an
impudent attempt to deceive and delude the
the people.
DEATH OF GENERAL EARLY.
The death of General Early is announced.
His decease took place at Lynchburg, Virginia, in the presence of his family and
kindred, at 10:30 on tho night of the 2nd
instant. Gi-n.ral Eu-ly w h one of the
ablest of Geneial {j-h's li-u*. nan's, and is
about the last in g.- <���( h- d'stinguiuhed
soldiers Who foug >i r��r the Su'h in the
great war of sesession. Jubal Anderson
Early was born in Franklin county, Virginia, November 3rd, 1816. He was therefore nearly 78 years old at the time of his
death. On the 15th of last month General
Early met with a severe accident when
coming out of the Lynchburg postoffice.
His floot slipped on a coat of ice when descending the steps from the door, and he
plunged headlong, striking several steps in
the fall, and landing on the pavement
several feet below. The shook of this
accident at his advanced age nodoubt has.
tened hia end. He was a graduate of the
United States military academy in 1837, and
was appointed a lieutenant of artillery and
.assigned to duty at Fort Munroe, Virginia.
He served in the Florida war, and resigned
from the army in 1838. He began the
paetice of the law in Virginia, and in 1841
was eleeted to the Legislature. In 1842 he
was elected commonwealth attorney. On
the outbreak of the Mexican war he resigned
tbat office to accept the position of major in
��� regiment of Virginia volunteers. He
served with distinction in the Mexican
war, and after the battle of Monterey waa
appointed military governor of that city by
General Taylor. After the conclusion of
tbe Mexican war he waa re-eleoted Common
wealth Attorney of Virginia and held the
position until 1852. Early was on active
advocate of aecesaion, and on the outbreak
of the rebellion entered the Confederate
service with the rank of Colonel. He commanded a brigade at Bull Run, and was severely wounded at Williamsburg in 1862.
He commanded a division under Lee at the
battle of Gettysburg. He earnestly advised
his ohief to make a flank attack on the Fed
eral left, offering himself to lead it. But unfortunately for the Confederate cause Lee
would not listen to his advice, but preferred
to make a direot attack in front on the po.
sition held by Hancock on Cemetery Ridge,
and sustained a bloody repulse. This battle
was the turning point of the war,
Lee adopted the same tactics
which Napoleon had used at Waterloo, and like him sustained defeat,
not at first so disastrous to the defeated
army. But in its ultimate result the defeat
of Gettysburg was ruinous to the Coufeder
ate cause. The Confederates never recov
ered from the repulse of Gettysburg, and
thereafter fortune ceased to smile upon
their efforts. Had Lee followed Early's
advice and made his chief attack on the left
flank of the Federal army at Gettysburg,
seizing the hill known as Round Top, which
at the outset of the battle was not occupied
in force hy the Federals, and planted there
on a strong battery of artillery, he could
have enfiladed with its fire Meade's position
from end to end, and there is very little
doubt would have been able to force Meade
to a disastrous retreat on Washington
perhaps have totally routed him. Early
was subsequently defeated with great loss
by General Sheridan at Obequan, Fisher's
Hill, and Cedar Creek, where owing
to Sheridan's absence he very
nearly defeated his army, but
Sheridan by his celebrated twenty-mile rid*
from Winchester arrived in time upon the
field to save the battle and defeat Eirly.
This was Sheridan's most celebrated achievement. E*.rly was defeated also by Custer
at Waynesboro, and his army nearly destroyed. He was then relieved of his command by Lee, on the ground that his influence and therefore his usefulness was
gone. After the close of the war Early made
a tour in Europe, and shortly after his return accepted in conjunction with Beauregard the management of the Louisiana State
Lottery. But the management uf the com-
cern by these generals was only nominal,
and intended as an advertisement by those
who really controlled it. It is to be regretted that soldiers so distinguished should
have, lent their names to such a business.
Early waB called by the Confederate soldiers " Lee's bad old man,"
from his profuse and picturesque
profanity. He was supposed by tho soldiers
to be always swearing, except when asleep,
just as General Jackson was supposed by
them to be always praying. But in spite of
his bad habit of using much profane
language, a habit which he no doubt acquir
ed in youth, he was a brave, skilful, and
experienced soldier, and leaves behind him
no survivor on cither side, of the war of
seces**i"p, wlir* was liisequal. He was, we
believe, ttie last of the great men whom that
struggle produced, to join the majority
Peace to his ashes, and many the turf lie
light on the soldier's grave.
Thk Government at Ottawa has entered
into a contract with Mr. James Huddart for
the conveyance of mails by a swift steam
service between England and Canada. The
period is for ten years, with option of re
newal at the expiration of that time. Mr.
Huddart is leaving for England to form a
company with sufficient capital to provide
fur the building of four first-class steam
ships, capable of steaming twenty miles an
hour at sea. The ships are to be fitted with
the latest refrigerating appliances for the
carriage of chilled beet and other meats,
poultry, fruits, etc. The amount of the
anuual subsidy is to be $750,000. It is of
course to be approved by Parliament. The
Canadian termini of the line are to be
Quebec in summer, and Halifax in winter.
The English terminus is not yet determined.
It is Mr. Huddart's intention to unite the
present Australian service with the new
Atlantio one, forming a complete line under
British control from England to the antipodes, via the Canadian Pacific railway. Mr.
Huddart on his arrival in England is immediately to place an order for a third
steamship for the Australian service. It is
expected that the Australian colonies will
subsidize the new line.

a garbled and erroneous extract iu reference
to a private case now on between Mr. W.
J. Gallagher and Mr. J. W. Horne, and
which oonoerns no one outside of the parties
directly concerned. Personalities and private affairs seem to be the staff of the very
existence of the long-eared individual
in question. However, if he wants
to open a campaign of this
character he iB welcome to do so, but it
would be well for him to first look into his
own clothes press and examine well its contents. If he is not then satisfied, he oan
easily be furnished with further information.
A few walking monuments might be brought
to his notice. The discretion of publishing
or commenting upon a case, in jndice, should
be left to the trial judge.
Yate's Paragraphs.
Edmund Yates, the society news factor of
London   cabled the   following   paragraphs
yesterday to the New York Tribune.
The Queen hat offered Mr. Gladstone an
earldom for himself or a similar title for his
wife, but he declined any snoh hon r, desiring in the matter, as he informed Her Majesty, to follow the example of his political
master, Sir Robert, Peel, who refused similar
distinction in 1846, and they were again
declined by Lady Peel in 1850 after her husband's death.
A well-known member of the House of
Commons says: I entertained 23 Radical
members at dinner a few nights ago when
they one and all pledged themselves to join
the Opposition in a vote of want of confidence if any peer was made Prime Minister,
and then having turned out the Government they would consolidate the Radical
party quite independently of the present
organization.
Mr. Gladstone's resignation has fluttered
every political dovecot, but among the anti-
Parnellite M.P.'s its effect has been little
short of consternation. If the Grand Old
Man be an apostle of Home Rule, John
Morley is its prophet, and to lose both at
one stroke is a grievous blow to them. The
idea that Herbert Gladstone should succeed
Morley in the Irish office sufficiently indicated the demoralization the event has produced. Fancy the Home Rule bill passed
by the Commons with Sir Wm. Harcourt as
leader of the House and Herbert Gladstone
as Chief Secretary of Ireland. The proposition is a frantic effort to retain a hold *
thus indirectly upon the veteran champion
of their discredited cause.
The Queen was asked to purchase the
necklace, earrings and brooch in the Egline-
ton collection of Jewels whioh had belonged
to Mary Queen of Scots, but Her Majesty
declined, as Queen Mary is not one of her
favorites.
What a comfort that the long controversy
as to who wrote the ''letters of Junius" is
satisfactorily settled. Here is yet another
book on the subject, the author of which is
a grandson of Sir Philip Francis. He claims
to prove conclusively that Francis was
"Juntas."
It wonld almost seem aa if the much desired daya when the Prime Minister owned
a favorite fnr the Derby and the leader of
the Opposition bred the prize ox were returning at the present moment. The owner
of the favorite for the Derby is the Prime
Minister of England, and if all goes well is
likely to be returned the winner.
Mr. Yarrow is to be congratulated upon
his most recent achievement. He has constructed a vessel capable of steaming 28
knots an hour, which is considerably in
excess of the speed attained by the fastest
transit between London and Hastings or
Portsmouth. The highest speed hitherto
attained is 27 knots.
The Queen proposes to leave Windsor for
Florence next Tuesday afternoon. She intends to reside at Florence for nearly five
weeks, then she will proceed to Cobourg for
a stay of about nine days, returning from
that place direot to England. Her Majest y
is expected to arrive at Windsor Castle from
the continent on April 28.
Some time ago a fine portrait of Charles
II oame in the market and the Queen waB
urgently requested to buy it for the Royal
collection of Windsor Castle. Her MajeBty
refused and then an elaborate memorandum
was aent to the police in which the reasons
for not buying the picture were enumerated.
Ultimately the Queen deoided to purohase
the work and thus endorsed the memorandum: "I consent but with great reluctance for I don't like Charles II."

KOOTENAY LAKE, B.C.
IS COMING 10 THE FRONT WITH A BOUND
It is the center of tbe Silver-Lead Mining Industry of lhe famous Slocan Region, which is now
sending $75,000 worth of Ore to Kaslo per week for shipment to the American smelters.
Mining men from all parts of the world say that it is the richest silvwr district known. The progress of development work in the mines verifies this statement.
Thousands of men will be employed in these mines. The natural base of supplies is Kaslo, which
is admirably adapted for the purpose, being a beautiful townsite, situated on a bay possessing excellent
shipping advantages.
The right of way for the Kaslo-Slocan Railway has been cleared, and the bridge foundations
have been put in place, so that the work of grading and track-laying may proceed at the earliest possible moment after the snow disappears.
The growth of Kaslo last year was very considerable. It is now an incorporated town, having a
population of 2,000 people. That this population will be doublt-d before the end of the present year is
unquestioned.
Kaslo offers to investors a most promising field. The opening up of the mines tributary to it
must build up Kaslo. The development of these mines is now in progress. Many others will be worked as soon as easily accessible.   An investment in a Kaslo lot will pay you handsomely.

Kaslo, B. C, Feb. 26.���Nearly all of Front street, Kaslo, between 3rd and 4th, was destroyed
by fire on Saturday vi-jht. Thirty buildings were burned, including all the hotels except the Leland
and Slocan.    Green Br >s.' buildings, J. B. Wilson's store and other parts of the town escaped.
Loss estimated at $100,000. with small insurance. The only fire protection is a small hand engine, with a volunteer brigade, ihe water having to be taken from the bay. The Customs Offices,
Byers' Hardware Store, and all the principal business establishments of the town were located on
this street, and succumbed to the devouring flames.

PHOTOGRAPHY IN COLORS.
Nature's Uylng TlnU Faithfully Reproduced by the Camera.
Photography in colors's a dream thatbai
Inflamed many besides the mere amateur
mil the enthusiast. Like several other delusions that will neverdie.lt has been reported a fait accompli over and over again;
yet the world still waits for colored photo-
graphs and waits in vain, if what it expects are correctly tinted reproductions,
taken direct from nature.   Tbe best that ia
THE I1KI.IOCTTROMOSCOPE AND ITS IKVENTOR.
said to have ever been done in this respect,
and it Is very wonderful, is the so called
"compBsite heliochromy" ot Mr. Frederic
Ives of Philadelphia.
In this process three pictures are taken
simultaneously on one plate, through colored screens of special construction, by
means of which each imago is made to
represent one of the three fundamental
color sensations produced on the eye.
These three images are superimposed one
on another by a triple optical lantern, or in
an instrument of highly ingenious construction called the "heliochromoscope," of Mr.
Ives' own invention, by means of which the
original object is shown not only in apparent relief, as in tho familiar stereoscope,
but also in tbe exact colors and shades of
nature.
These pictures, speaking vulgarly, are
not colored photographs. The three actual
images on each plate are black and white as
usual, with a difference merely as regards
the distribution of light and shade in each;
it is only when they are combined and
when the proper conditions aro restored
that the illusory effects of color are given.
The heliochromoscope is a small square
box with an eyepiece, somewhat resembling
a camera. In exhibiting specimens, after
turning the instrument toward tho light,
Mr. Ives slipped in front of it what appeared to be an ordinary photographic neg-
nl Ive with three pictures ou it arranged in
trefoil. This, however, ho asserted, was
not a negative, but a simple positive taken
on glass instead of paper. Tho images were
not colored, but merely differed from one
another in regard to the arrangement of
light and shade.
On putting one's eye to the eyepiece there
nT>|ii'arcd iu full relief un absolutely perfect
representation of a dish of fruit; glossy red
tipples, ni'ittled yellow bananas, and a
luscious bunch of green grapes covered
with a tempting bloom that made one's
mouth water more than all the efforts of
Dutch genre painters could ever do. Several similar objects followed; then came
photographs of colored pictures, of oil
paintings, of Swiss scenery, in all the living
colors of nature.
Baking Brinks by Eleetrlelty*
A western inrentor has designed an Ingenious method for baking bricks by eleo>
I ricity, which is described in Tbe Industrial
World as follows:
"Tlie machine is a simple contrivance,
consisting of a table covered with iron brick
molds, to which the electric current ia
applied. The table is 14 by 8 feet and holds
1,1 UO molds, which uro joined together
like a lot of "pigeon holes." Each mold
is the size of a brick whioh has been pressed
but not baked, aud each has a loose cover
so fitted as to follow the brick asit.shrinks.
Tlie bricks are taken from the presses and
placed in the molds, the covers adjusted
and the current turned on. The iron sides
of the mold form the "resistance," and
thus the bricks are virtually inclosed by
walls of fire. I
"'When the bricks bare shrunk to tba
right size, the sinking covers of the mold*
break connection and thus automatically
turn off the current when the baking is
cone, and the bricks are dumped. It is
claimed that only three hours and a half
are required to bake bricks by l his process,
snd that they are harder and better than
those produced by the present process."
Collecting Canceled Stamps.
What ia apparently more useless than
canceled postage stamps? And yet there
la a store on Michigan avenue where
they seem to be in demand. One of the
windows is er.tin'y heaped up with
present day United States Btamps, mostly of the 2 cent denomination. There
must be thousands of them, and tho observer can only wonder what in tho
world can be their value. They cannot
possess any particular interest to the
stamp collector, for they are neither
rare nor valuable. To the ordinary person the canceled 2 cent postage stamp
seems a worthless thing indeed, Prices
paid for such stamps, however, nre 10
cents per 1,000, fl per lO.UOO, and $12
per 100,000. Many an Industrious lad
will probably be moved by this offer las
the appearance of tho Window indeed
testifies), and yet the immense labor of
collecting 100,000 stamps can be appreciated.
Yet during the Centennial stamps
were bought in tho same manner, and
those who purchased them are today
reaping a handsome profit, for the Centennial postage stamp haa increased wonderfully in value in a canceled condition during the last few years. As time
goes on stamps increase greatly in value,
especially stamps issued for one year
only on a special occasion like the Centennial or fair. To show how valuable
a stamp may become, the writer of this
may mention the fact that eight years
ago he purchased a first issue English
envelope stamp in London for $7.50, and *
it was at that time worth a great deal
more in this country. Now it has probably increased still more.���Detroit Free

THE WELL BRED GUEST.
Hints For  a Pleasant Visit���The Complimentary Utternnces at Parting.
And now to the guest a word in season,
says Good Housekeeping. To be the charming and welcome visitor, be punctual at
meals; of affairs of an unpleasant character
happening in the household take no heed.
To interfere with or order the servants is
very bad form. Above all, correct not other
people's children. Mothers invariably resent this, and one taking this liberty is considered a very interfering person. At the
family bedtime expressa willingness tore-
tire. Never monopolize the conversation
at table. There is a valuable addition to
every home and its inmates in the ready
listener, who is sought for and appreciated.
In England avisitor is allowed the morning to himself. He can drive, walk, ramble in the woods, study in his owu room
and do whatever his predilection dictates,
recollecting that the dinner and evening
belong to his host and hostess.
Do not make a false start in going, either
from a brief call or a long sojourn. In the
former case simply rise, say such few parting words as are necessary���and go. Do
not keep others waiting while you rattle
on, or think of other things which might
be said. When the time fixed for the end
of a visit has arrived, act upon the same
principle.
The hostess will doubtless say, "I wish
you could remain with ns longer," and in
doing so will indirectly testify to the pleasure which the visit has afforded. But this
kindly utterance should not be taken as a
request to the guest to break up her own
plans in order to tarry longer. Likewise
when the latter responds: "Thank you. The
time really seems very short, as it has been
so happily spent." she has made a return
of courtesy in kind which will be much
more pleasantly recalled in after days than
a too literal compliance with the complimentary utterance of the hostess. It is always desirable in parting from our friends,
whether for an hour or for an eternity, to
leave with them agreeable impressions and
recollections.     	
A HtaM Fo�� Young Visitor*.
A person visiting a house should .level
confine his or her attention to any one pm>
ticular member of the family; kindness^
attention, courtesy should be extended to
all, and care should be taken by any young
person who is the friend of younger members of the family that deference be paid
particularly to the host and hostess.
Considerable mutuality.

The Little Bird and the Split Pea.
Hindoo children are entertained in the
nursery by a story which is very similar to
the old Saxon tale of "Tha Woman Who
Found tho Silver Penny."
"Once upon a time," saystheblacknurse
to the black baby far away in the jungles,
"a littlo bird on its way through the woods
picked up a big pea, and took it to the mill
to be split. As it happened, one-half of
the pea stuck in the mill handle, aud the
miller could not get it oat and gave up the
attempt fur a bad job."
Now come the adventures of the little
bird iu his wonderful perseverance to recover tho lost portion of the pea.
First he went to a carpenter and asked
him to cut the mill handle, hut the carpenter resented the idea of cutting a mill handle for the sake of half a pea.
Then, he went to the king and begged
him to chide the carpenter, but his majesty
refused to blame an honest workman for
so trivial a matter.
Nothing daunt* 1, the little bird went to
the queen and bode her speak to the kins,
but the queen declined to speak to the king
about such a trifle us half a pea.
So the little bird went to the snake and
bade the reptile bite the queen, but the
snake refused the temptation of even so
dainty a morsel tor the recovery of half a
pea.
The little bird flew to the stick and requested the stick to beat the snake, but
the stick did not consider the action justifiable for the sake of half a pea.
Then tho little bird begged the fire to
burn tbe stick, but tbe fire declined to be
so cruel for tho sake of a pea, muoh more
for thu half one.
The sea was next appealed to and asked
to quench the fire, but with the same result, and the elephant was asked to drink
up the sea, and the bhaunr, a tangled creeping plant, was asked to snare the elephant,
and the mouse was asked to gnaw the
bhaunr, but they all declined, because half
a pen was not worth the trouble.
But when the little bird asks the cat to
eat the mouse, pussy thought less of the
half pea than of the rare meul in prospect,
and ut once decided to comply with the
little bird's request. Iu an instant the
mouse, to escape the threatened doom, ran
to gnaw the bhaunr, and the creeping plant
agreed to snare the elephant, and so on
through all the creatures, and even to the
kinu uud queen and carpenter, until at last
the little bird recovered his pieoeof pea aud
went on his way rejoicing.
Now this Hindoo nursery tale haa two
morals. The first is that great perservance
always succeeds in the long run. The second
is that sometimes the object sought is not
worth the very extraordinary efforts that
are pat forth to attain il
Bo valuable are her jewels that Mrs. Potter Palmer never attends a ball or party of
any kind to which she wean them without
a private detective to form part of her
escort.

"The Province."
We expeuded five cents yesterday and
bought the province The Province typographical, not geographical. Till Henry
Irving arose on the histrionic horizon and
grappled dramatically with the Bard of
Avon's plays, their production was generally
considered to spell ruin for the producer. A
similar doom has been the inevitable fate of
many enterprises mot toed with quotations
from Shakespear. One cannot but admire
the hardihood of the proprietors and publishers of The Province who have bo heavily
weighted their production with a text from
Antony and Cleopatra, "A province I will
give thee." We are not erudite enough to
know in what relation this stands to the
context, hut if the extract, aloue is lived up
to, it will be within our province to plentifully praise The Province for its providence.
Before saying God speed to the new Provincial puper, we would advise the "Men

paragraphs are continent, or that they follow in sequence.
