The Illinois engineers estimate that
|tf,000,000  would  cover    the    cost  of
this greal work, but the Internationa]
board regards that sum as Insufficient
to meet the needs of the project.   They
say that it cun scarcely dispose or the
flood water of the section tu be drained, even its present sparsely populated
condition, while If the Inhabitants multiply as expected    the   Calumet river,
under    the    local    engineers'    project,
would lie forced huekwards    and    into
Lake  Michigan,  just   as  it. does  now.
The International board is prepurod to
recommend a project costing in the aggregate, 117.000,000.     While   prepared
to meet  any decision    on   the part of
congress or the war department as to
the construction of this improvement,
the international hoard is really much
opposed to H, taking the grounds that
there  are  better  ways of successfully
disposing  of the   sewage of  the  tract
sought to be drained than hy the adoption of a plan which is certain to considerably reduce  the    level    of    Lake
Michigan, ami  so -injuriously affecting
the navigation in  this and  the  whole
chain of lakes.

Toronto,    Feb.    2. ��� For    supplying
drugs for improper purposes Mrs. Lillian Miller, who practiced as The Doctor De Voss Medicine company, was today committed to Kingston penitentiary for two years by Justice Clute in
the criminal aatsses, John Godfrey,
counsel for tlie defendant, asked the
court to take into consideration the fact
that Mrs. Miller had already spent
seven weekB in jail and had hitherto
home a good chara-cter; this was her
first appearance in court. Mr. Godfrey
said that she had been engaged ,in a
business that hitherto had borne a legal
construction. She had carried on business and given instructions to hor
patrons that the renuleies she sold
were not for improper purposes.
Justice Clute refused to grant a reserve
on the ground that letters put in by the
crown and which were found in possession of the prisoner were not evidence. His lordship held that the let
tern were admissible as evidence.
Justice Clute was very pronounced
in his remarks to the prisoner before
passing sentence upon ber. The evidence left no doubt as lo the abominable traffic in which tbe prisoner was
engnced. The unfortunate part of the
whole thing was thai letters nnd papers
found In her possession were to a very
large extent from marled women who
were lured Into purchasing Ihese noxl
ous drugs. A more disgraceful thing
had not been disclosed since he took a
seat on the bench. The people who
bought drugs were liable to life Imprisonment. He could find no extenuating
oirenmstnnces nnd would give the full
penalty allowed by law.
Washington, Feb. 2.���United    States
Secretary ot  State Root  positively refuses to make any statement touching
the  Japanese   situation   in   connection
with  the conference which  took place
at the White House on Wednesday eve-
uing between  the president  und  somo
members of the cabinet and the members of the California delegation.    He
does, however, enter a sweeping denial
of any  published  interviews attributed
to him as to the imminence of war or
the state of the treaty negotiations, or
indeed    any    phase    of    this subject,
which he regards as one eminently un-
suited  for  public    discussion    at  this
time.   The Japanese ambassador is nol
accessible to newspaper representatives
and he declined to lie seen this afternoon, hut the members of the embassy
staff affirm that he has not authorized
any newspaper statement on this subject.    It   appears that   the   statement
that the press cable despatches ascribed to   Baron   Hayasht. the   Japanese
minister for foreign affairs, to the effect that  in the event  tbat the courts
upheld  the  San  Francisco school  officials, the    matter    of    discrimination
against  Japanese    will require.-  diplomatic treatment,  waR  erroneously  attributed in some quarters to Secretary
Root, who has lieen put in the position
of saying that he received an  ultimatum   from   the   Japanese   minister for
foreign affairs.

was brought here by Governor O. B
Moore who arrived yesterday from
Samoa. He stated that a trading
schooner came into Apia with the news
shortly before he sailed. It is deemed
probable that the earthquake was the
one which recorded iteBelf on selsmo-
graphs In various parts of the world.
According to the Instrument at Apia,
Samoa, it lasted for several minutes
and was said to be the heaviest shock
ever recorded. It was thought at the
time it occurred somewhere in the
South Seas but as no report came from
any civilized island it was believed that
it occurred at sea.

Is  ihe gist of whai  the president has
been telling the Californians ever since
the public school Incident in Sim Francisco attracted   international  attention.
All they have to do Is to g.Vt Into the
fight   and   keep  on  insisting on   their
present course, and the result  will be
certain.   Not now, nor in the Immediate future, because Japan is uot  now
in condition to tight) and knows it. hut
a continuation   of   California's course
will bring abont such a careful preparation for war on the part of Japan as
took  place  before    the    Htruggle with
Russia,    lt   will  lead   the .lupanese  to
think thai war with the I'nited States
is invited  and once they  pet   that notion  settled in  their  heads  they  will
not   refrain  from  preparation lor war.
When they are ready they will po at
tl,  and   If  we  are  not  ready, too,  so
much the worse for ns.    The position
taken  by  the Japanese  is simple und
clear.    They believe    in  their    social
equality with any oilier nation on earth.
They ure   ready    to make It pood   by
force   of   arms.    They   feel   that   tliey)
have already proved It hy defeating the
UusniiuiK and huve no desire to make
any further demonstration id' thai kind,
but If a nituutlou arises where It would
seem necessary to them to make such
a further demonstration, they will lose
no time in gi'tting at lt.
TSklo,  Feb.  2--jHaron  Kautaro  Ka-
neko, a   distinguished   member of  the
Japanese house of peers, and a special
ambassador  recently  detailed  by    the
Imperial government to visit America
und Biudy politics and economic conditions, has just beeu interviewed on the
Sun Francisco school question,   ln the
course of the Interview he said: "From
the outset 1 knew it to he a local questiou,   unendorsed   by   the   Americans.
This   is   more than  coufirmed  by   the
president In his message, which 1 consider the greatest utterance since the
farewell massage of President Washington.    It is unprecedented in the way
It strongly advocates a foreign cause.
No stronger or abler advocate could be
found for Japan.   When the text of his
message   beurlng  ou   the school   question was  fully translated in the leading papers throughout    this    country,
even ln   Formosa   all    could    readily
ser anil appreciate the profoundness of
Ills argumentB. Had the question arisen
elsewhere  the   crisis   would  have   occurred and lisuil defiance have been ut-
tend   the   length  and   breadth  of  the
empire.   On the other hand, the quiet-
uess of the president's message early
demonstrated the strength of the confidence in   President   Hnsevelt,    l:l    the
typical  American  sentiment  generally.
"As a sincere friend of  the  Americans  1 could not  lint  regret   that   San
Fiauiisi'o should  have chosen   tlie  Inline ni Chinese for effecting their political aims.   All my friends who have
recently returned from abroad, making
observation of eduoatlonal systems tn
civilised  countries,   concur   In giving
'he first rank to Hie American system."

Church Destroyed by Fire.
Crenfell, SusK., Fi-b. 2.���The Methodist church here was*, totally destroyed
by fire yesterday afternoon, the origin
being, 11 Is supposed, due to an over-
h' ated furnace. Tile town pioneer brigade fought the flames for some time
hut to n-s avail, with tb*1 temperature
*!ii bi'lssw zero. The building and cou-
s tits were worth abom $2000, with insurance of $1*100 In the Oanada, divided
as follows: $1000 on building, $200 on
contents and |1000 on the organ. A
new church will be ready for occupancy
on the first Sunday ln March.

The local contractors report that sev-

been let for substantial dwellings.   The
building that will be done will chiefly
consist of dwellings, and In view of this
building boom a great demand for lumber will  likely exist,    to    provide for
which the Yale-Columbia Lumber company is at present cutting some four
million feet of saw logs on the North
Fork  of Kettle  river.    Added  to this
'he local lumber merchants are reported to have several million feet of lumber now on hand.   It Is claimed that
the erection of quite a number of dwellings will be commenced  ln the early
���spring, a good number of them being
in the North Addition, being built by

It seems likely, as indicated in a
Washington despatch published elsewhere in this Issue, that the Issue of
peace or war upon the North American
continent Is In the hands not of a nation, but of the state of California. The
treatment accorded Japanese residents
of San Francisco by the people of that
city will not long be borne by a high-
spirited and courageous race, as the
Japanese have proved themselves to be.
The possible eonfliel of state rights
with national Interests is tlie weakest
point tu the American constitution. It
nearly caused the secession of New
England during the war of 1812; it;
caused the Civil war of 1801, and it
may now provoke a war with tlie vanquishers of Russia. The saddest feature of the case Is that the anti-Oriental sentiment in the Pacific states,
which is not shared by tlie business
and property Interests, is but one phase
of labor union policy, fostered and developed into a permanent attitude by
the foolish words of self-seeking demagogues.

power, the period ol' progress and prosperity already so happily begun will
Undoubtedly continue ami lis good results will multiply. Eastern. American
and Hritish capital, which now hus every confidence in thf stability* efficiency and honesty of the present administration, will continue tu flow in
for Ihe development of the marvellous
resources of the province in minerals,
timber and agricultural lands. The
province will enjoy auch a degree of
prosperity us It has never yet known.
Hut if, on the other hand, the government Bhouldf?be overthrown, there
is no doubt that it would have a most
disastrous effect upon llrltlsh Columbia's commerce and industries. Capitalists are ever ready u, gamble with
nature, but they shrink from the other
uncertainties artificially added by man.
The mere publication hy Joseph Martin in 1900 of the mad programme he
intended to carry out If placed in power, did incalculable harm to provincial
enterprises that depended for success
on the assistance and -support of out-
Bl3_ capital.
W. W. B. Mclnnes is now, thougli not
the nominal leader, the most conspicuous figure In the Liberal ranks, and
likely, if elected, and the party returned to power, to exercise an influence ou the policy which it must then
W. W. It. Mclnnes stood as a Mar*
tinite candidate in 1900. As far as his
conduct can ever be taken to indicate
any convictions, be endorsed the mad
programme of Joseph Martin, which
startled sane public men and business
men and threw the development of the
province back  at   least  five years.
Mclnnes' career has probably attracted little notice outside of Hritish
Columbia, but if he became a dominant
influence in provincial politics, It
would soon be learned and capital
again would seek otber fields.
A few hours more will tell. We are
confident tbat the province will choose
decisively to retain its present administration.
