the Orient, say tiie wheal and Hour imports of Japan have increased more than
eight hundred per cent, in ten years,
and the trade is only in itsAfancy. At
present the Oriont is flooded with a
qualit y of flour for cooking purposes
that would probably not find sale in
any other part of the world, hut Japanese are under the impression that all
wheals are the same, that "flcur" is
flour. -Tntil this misconception disappears the Canadian article will not attain favor in the markets of the east.
Representatives of the Grand Trunk

minister of railways against the principle embodied in W. F. MacLean's bill

Coboalt, Dec IT.���Samples of Cobalt
ore are being forwarded to smelting in
England and Germany iu an attempt to
have them enter the market. ThSM
plants have splendid facilities for treating every class of ore and It would cost
hardly any more to ship ore across the
Atlantic than to New York. The chief
reason for the backwardness of the Old
Country smelters in coming forward for
the ore Is ttie doubt in the minds ai>out
the permanency of the-ore depoaits of
Cobalt. Hut development work at the
camp has sufficiently progressed to reveal large deposits of ore ensuring a
continuous supply for a long speriod of
years.
lt is estimated that the Trethewey
mine will take out from $600,-00 to $750.-
00Q of ore in tbe next year.
Secretary J. Maloney . of the Central Cobule Mining company, in a circular Just issued, report that the main
shaft or the iilg Pete mine is down 171

Pekln, Dec. 17.���The Imperial customs
department, of which Sir Robert Hart is
rirector-general, settling previous objections, is now prepared to proceed with
the policing of the West River, according to the plans of Great Hritain. ln
the face of much opposition from the
officials of Kuantung province, the department is pressing forward iu its purpose to end fifty years of piracy. Great
Hritain is showing a determination in
the present crisis to effect a steadying
influence ou the Chinese government,
which is asking time to manage the
angry officiala.
An unexpected element in the situation is the fact that the Chinese news
papers have sent out broad-cast the
Times' correspondent's Loudon speech,
which is optimistic on Chinese progress,
encourages the control by China of Its
own interests and foreign iutercsts in
Rs own country, und anticipates the
withdrawal of foreign troops from
China.
The Hritish newspapers published
here condemn this optimism as unjustified. Three of the nv-st prominent
Englishmen in Pekln deprecate it severely and apprehend an aggravation
of the sinister influences which the .lap
anese-Bchooled Chinese are exercising
over the people.
lt is the general opinion that the
speech will become a weapon for antl
foreign crusaders.

Two colored men, named John Jaeh-

While the Chinaman's wound Is a
painful one, it is not considered that it

some pertinent observations ut tbe annual meeting of the Hank of Ottawa.
Referring to the financial stringency he
said this ts the time when we iu Canada
should go slow.    He remarked:
"I have no fear for Canada for the
preseut or for tbe future. All 1 thiuk
that is wanting is that the government's

slow. 1 think at the present time we
might probably be very happy wlihout
Impottlng maxim guns, or If a few leaa
acetylene gus buoys were put down we
eou'.il still be happy and contented. We
might also remain buppy if a few
