RUSSIAN    PIRATES.
Seize   Passenger   Steamer   --*���   Black   Sea
And  Make  Good  Haul.
OddoHsa. July 2l��.���The passenger
steamer Sophia, which sailed from here
on Saturday for Chorli, was held up
sixty miles trout port by armed robbers
fin board, who made a suceHsful raid
and escaped.
While the captain and passengers
were at supper three pirates over-awed
them with revolvers. Two others stood
���Ion-grids the wheelman and ordered
him to lay his course for Odessa or be
shot. About a dozen others went through
the saloon and cabins aud secured a
cashbox containing $28*00*0 which the
cashier of the Kusxian bank of Foreign
Trade was ttlklng to Chorli, besides $500
belonging to the pasengers.
When nearing Odessa, the robbers
disabled the engines, let off steam, destroyed one of the steamer's boats,
launched the two others and escaped
ashore.    There Is no trace of them.

LAW LIKELY TO LAPSE
Lord's Day Act In   Force  in  Yukon  but
Season   Will   Be Over  Before
Prosecutions Begin.
Ottawa, July 22.���A practical solution
of the Lord's I>ay situation lu the Yukon teems to have been devised. A good
deal of consternatiou was caused In
that region by the ruling that the act
applied to It; the season is so short that
the mines have only t.O or 70 working
days in the year, and the subtraction
from work caused by an entire cessation of work on the Sunday is regarded
as serious. If, for example, the forcing
of steam into a low-lying "pay drift" Is
discontinued on Sunday, the soil
freezes, and a good deal of Monday may
be lost. These practical difficulties are
being considered, along with a g.eat
number of complaints, by the Lord's
Day association.
The situation is that the enforcement
of the law rests with the attorney gen-
oral. The Yukon has no attorney general but the attorney general of Canada���In other words, the minister of
Justice. The probability Is that the local executive will wait for Instructions
from the minister of justice, and that,
by the time complaints have been duly
made, have been recorded, have penetrated from one official hand to another, have met with the requisite consideration at each stage, have travelled
several thousand miles to Ottawa, and
have come to the attention of the attorney general of Canada���the season
wilt be pretty well over.
The view which Is favored here seems
to be that in the Yukon conditions are
ho special that, rules which are suitable
elsewhere cannot be rigidly applied;
and that, while actual regular prosecution of the week-day labors is to be discouraged, many subsidiary tasks, such
as the continuance of the thawing process and the repair of resting machinery,
aro not objectionable. While not officially avowed, these views probably
prevail In practice, and In the enforcement of the law a middle course is to
ba expected.
Motor Collision's Victims.
New York, July 22.���Miss Helen Mail!
gun, who was injured in a collision between an automobile and a Long Island
train at St. Alban's last night, when
her fiancee. Dr. Edward J. Gallahcr, wai
killed, died early today in the hospital.
The couple were riding for the day In a
large touring car and while crossing the
tracks at St. Alban's an express train
struck their machine. A shee of burning gasoline from a broken tank enveloped the couple in flames. Nearly
every bone in Dr. Gallaher's body was
broken nnd he was killed instantly.
Miss Madigan's clothing was nearly
burned from her body and a passenger
extinguished the flames by rolling her
In the grass. HorJaw and left leg were
broken. She was taken to the hospital
where she died today.
JAPANESE RULE
Strengthening Control in
Korea
CRITICISM OF VISITOR
Conquerors Accused of Harshness
and Injustice, and of Trampling on Native Feelings.
Toklo, July 22.���It Is reported from
Seoul that the retired emperor refused
to acknowledge his complen non-interference Willi the new adminisfct.''ion, insisting that the new emperor was cmly
his proxy. He wns prevailed noon tt
withdraw from his position and to consent to the inauguration of a new epoch
with a new name In accordance with
usage. Fak You How was reappointed
household minister yesterday, and Ylte
Coie, chief chamberlain, has been arrested, with the approval ot the new
emperor, on suspicion of tucking riots.
London, July 22.���Homer B. Hulburt,
an American, who has held several
prominent educational positions in
Seoul, Korea, Is now in London on his
way to the United States. In an interview Mr. Hulbert complained strongly
of what he termed the unfair and Illegal
treatment of the Coreans by the Japanese. Every office in Corea, he said, has
been given to the Japanese. Land is
being seized without sufficient compensation, and all the trade and commerce
has ben gathered in the bends of the
Japanese tu the exclusion of the Americans and British.
Mr. Hulbert <'ousid��.is that Japan Is
ignoring the treaty rights which Corea
established with Great Britain and the
United States. He intends, he says, to
appeal to the Chambers of Commerce
and similar bodies throughout the
United States to oppose this condition
of affairs. He doeB not accuse the ofSc-
als in high authority iu Japan, who
seemingly desire to do the right thing,
but, he says, tbe officials find It impossible to get the proper men to carry out
their intentions.
While no step has yet ben taken the
Kmjiorer's people still fear his dethronement; hence the return to Corea
ot the two men looked upon as possible
pretenders is regarded as Indicative
either of such a step or a scheme to precipitate a conflict between the contending forces of Coreans, which might give
the Japanese an excuse to exercise their
force. In view of the uncertainties all
the leading Coreans are afraid to give
expression   to   their  views.
SITUATION   AT  COBALT.
Citizens    Resent    Suggestion    of    Even
Temporary Set Back.
Cobalt, July 22.���The most unpopular people in all Cobalt at the present
time are the knockers. Though the
town has outlived their pessimistic forecasts, and though the camp's development shows no sign of decline, the man
with the grouch has not yet found that
level of Indifferent contempt which is
his due In old-established communities,
and Cobalt apparently, has not yet been
entirely weaned from fear of Ignominious fate, no matter how persistently
men may Bay that "wild cats" are things
of the past and that there is a glorious
past to the future.
To the loyal people of such a town as
Cobalt, the knocker's little hammer has
a particularly unpleasant sound. Us
clang has a varied significance. The
speculator bends his whole ear to It;
the commercial man with his head to
the ground for ominous sounds, does not
like It; the mine-owner, who is sometimes declared to be * a more coldblooded individual than is actually the
case, is often discouraged by It; while
to the man who sayB "I told you so"
It gives a certain amount of falBe satisfaction.
. While Cobalt lacks many of those advantages which attract permanent residents, people who have been there for
a long time are bold enough to say that,
as a mining town It will be long-lived,
no matter how often It may he compelled
to shift its site. This is no more than
the result of the faith thnt has been
fostered by the prospects that have
been revealed by the rapid development  of the past few years.
Though the mine-owners and managers nre economical In their communications, it Is a matter of public knowledge
that development along very extensive
lines has been planned by several of
the larger mines, and It Is apparent
that much building Is being done, a
great deal of new equipment being installed, and general operations Indicate
that Cobalt Is advancing far beyond the
merely prospective stage. Rich strikes
that are being made In Ihe surrounding
districts from day to day do much to
strengthen the confidence of the optimist. "How many really good mines
are there in the district ?" was a question  asked   of  a  mine  manager.
Waving his hand in a circle that embraced the entire country surrounding
Cobalt Lake, he enumerated twelve
names, concluding by observing with a
smile that his own property was the
best In the bunch���next, of course to
Niplsslng, which, with its S40 acres,
looms up In much the same way���as
compared with other mines���as the
Standard Oil Company does alongside
all other American enterprises. Following out the same comparison, the controllers of Niplsslng have���justly or unjustly���been blamed for a proportionately large share of activity In promoting these conditions which are said to
have retarded the camp���-the most recent of these being the strike of the
mine-workers. There are those among
whom are the strikers, who claim that
the trouble originated with Niplsslng,
with the object of causing a further decline of stock, while others���and
among these are the mine-owners���
who declared east the present situation
la ii thing more or less than a fight
which li.el to be waged sooner or later,
and entirely independent of any stock
market design.
Reforming   Canon   Law.
Home, July tt.���The commission appointed to reform the canon law has
voted a canon restoring the power of
nullification of marriages by the church
in cases of special circumstances. The
commission reserves the right to decide later whether or not the power of
nullification shall be suppressed p I together.
HENRI BOURASSAS AIM
Want* Quebec to Share in Progre** of
Canada���Does not Aspire to
Leadership.
Monlmagiiy.Que.. July 22.���"I cannot
denounce too strongly the federal ministers who tell the people of Quebec that
they must support Sir Wilfrid Laurler
and all his government in order to protect the French-Canadians against the
fanaticism of Ontario.
"I have visited Ontario. I have
spoken in Ontario, and In more places
In Canada than any of the venal valets
of the Laurier government. And 1 have
found no such fanatic opposition to the
French-Canadians aa those ministers
seek to have the people of Quebec imagine.
"There is a much smaller element of
bigoted people* In Ontario than we in
Quebec think, but there are always a
few, (for political purposes, point to
every fault of which we French-Canadians may be guilty.
"Therefore, If we hope to enjoy the
full confidence and participation of our
fellow-citizens in the good government
of thla country we must flrst rule our
own home, Quebec, well.
"That may be a reason to attract me
to provincial affairs, but I have not decided my course as yet, being too busy
a man to afford the luxury of discussing
Issues before they arise."
These are some of the declarations
of M. Henri Ilourassa in his Impassioned address to over 1,500 French-
Canadians here on Saturday.
Tho trouble with Quebec, he said, was
that Sir Wilfrid Laurier's preBtlge had
for years been so great that the people
had not paid proper attention to their
public affairs. Without desiring to light
Premier Gouin, he wanted to stir up affairs so that there could be a more Intelligent supervision of tho public administration in the local as well as in
the federal  house.
"I have not the,presumption to try-
to head any party In Quebec." said Mr.
Hourassa, "but I waut to ask any young
men who have not yet joined any political party to Join in a new movement In
Quebec, not to revolutionize anything,
but simply to create a Bound public
opinion thai would compel any government to work for tho best Interests of
the province, and not for their own personal good."
Mr. Bourassa vigorously assailed corruption at Ottawa. The Liberals, he
said, had, since 1896, done everything
they had denounced in Conservatives.
There was more corruption, and on a
larger scale at Ottawa today that under
Ihe Conservative rule. He respected
8lr Wilfrid Laurler, but he could not
trust tho  administration.
Referring to provincial affairs, Mr.
Bourassa dealt with the Assclln-Pre-
vost-Turgeon affair, and said tho evidence proved "either too little or too
much." The "calsse electorale" (election fund) of Quebec waa not a clean
one.
Mr. Bourassa was tendered an ovation at the close of his address, and
brife speeches along independent political lines were delivered by Messrs. Lavergne,  M.  P., and  Robltaille, M.  P.
BEST TO CANADA
British Immigrants of
Good Class
FROM RURAL DISTRICTS
/gents Giving Up Effort Among City
P opulitions���United States
Thawing Very Few.
Ottawa, July 22.���"The striking feature of British lm migration to Canada
this year Is the comparative superiority
of the immigrants leaving British porta,
destined for the Dominion aa contrasted
with those bound for the United States,"
said J. Bruce Walker, chief Canadian
immigration agent In Great Britain in
an Interview at Winnipeg this week.
Mr. Walker came to Canada rrom Lon-
don last week ou departmental business.
He was enthusiastic in describing the
success attending the Canadian immigration propaganda in the mother country this year. Efforts are being devoted
chiefly, he Bald, to promoting Immigration from rural England, Scotland and
Ireland.
The classes especially needed in Canada are those adapted to agricultural
pursuits and acting under instructions
from the department here, the immigration agents in Great Britain are not paying much attention to the cities but are
devoting most of their energies to getting immigrants from the rural section.
Northern and northwestern England are
at present furnishing the largest supply. Immigrants from London and the
other large cities are mostly sent out by
the various charitable organizations.
The volume of English and Scotch immigrants to Canada this year, Mr.
Walker said, shows to this dute an increase of over fifty i>er cent, as com-
par 4 with last year.
Sp<. Mng of the character of the reports feen' back from Canada to Great
Britain b> immigrants, Mr. Walker
noted that the immigration agents now
rarely have to reply to the exaggerated
statements of hardships, etc., made In
letters to the press by disgruntled immigrants here. The next mall from
Canada usually brings a letter from
some fellow immigrant refuting their
mis-statements and advertising the advantages of Canada. Some of the letters sent to the British rural press from
Canada are ridiculously false.
Mr. Walker instanced letters which
appeared this last spring telling of how
immigrants had been chased through the
streets of Winnipeg by wolves and declaring that hundreds of Englishmen
had been found dead on the prairies in
consequence of the severity of the winter. These frequent mis-statements frequently sent from Canada, libelling Canada, have been brought to the attention
of the minister of justice and it is
probable that legislation will be introduced at the next sesion of parliament
making It a criminal offense to wilfully
Blander the country lu the press of other
lands.
UNION   MEN   INTERVENE.
Promise Attack on Grand Fork* License
Commissioner*.
Another   Royal Vlaltor..
Milan, .luly 22.���It Is announced that
King Victor Emmanuel Intends to visit
England    nccompanled by    an    Italian
licet.
(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Grand Forks, July 22.���Quite a sensation was sprung on the citizens "this
morning hy the rejHtrt that the local labor union was taking up the matter of
the city licensing commissioners refusing to grant a renewal of the license for
the Square hotel, while at the Biime
time the commissioners allowed other
hotel keepers a certain length of time
to enable them to put their premises In
shape to comply with the law. It is today Intimated that a committee appointed by the labor union will probe the
matter to the bottom and will likely
iuake a clear presentment of their case
to the attorney general's department
with a request that a new licensing
board be appointed that will act impartially. Your correspondent has interviewed several prominent members of
the labor union who, while not wishing
to confirm the report^dld not deny It.
The charges against the licensing board
will be of a highly sensational nature. In
the meantime the Dominion Parliament Loan company, of Toronto, who
own the Square hotel, have Instructed
their solicit-)- A. C. Sutton, to take
e.-ery process o" law to compel the issuance of the license for the Square
hotel. Never since the Incorporation of
Grand Forks has there been such a
stir among the citizens as the cancellation of this license bus caused. Mayor
Hammer and Commissioners McCallum
and Mcintosh say that they will stand
"pat" on the stand they have taken,
and at any time new sensations in connection with this matter may be looked
for.

PRAISE NELSON EXHIBIT
Collection of Kootenay Product* a* Seen
In   Winnipeg���Earl  Grey'*
Word*   Recalled.
The Winnipeg Tribue has the following to say of the Kootenay exhibit:
"Nearly every section of the earth's
surface, that Is not a waste desert, ha*
some natural advantage to recommend
it to the home-seeker, and some have
been dealt with by Nature's prodigal
hand, bo that they are called by the
poetically inclined, "garden spots of the
earth." But after every other part of
the world has been visited, tt Is to the
wonderful clime of Canada's Pacific
slope that we must turn, to find the
nearest approach to the Garden of Eden
of Holy Writ And the fairest spot in
this country is the Kootenay���that valley nestled between the lakes and the
mountains where Nature's every gift to
man is brought in on giant horn, and
strewn at His very feet. The flrst setters to the Kootenay saw only the magnificent forests, and the hills with their
teeming stores of precious metals, and
even with only these the land was
termed the. Golconda of the new continent. Lately, however, the wonderful
pmcllvlty of the climate and soil of
that section has been developed, with
the Immediate result of producing the
finest fruit on earth, and for the promise ot future that this brings to the
country we can best quote from the
words of Earl Grey, governor general
of Canada, when he said to the people
of the Kootenay:
" 'What I have seen and learned d.
your fruit industry has Inclined me to
believe that, rich as are the separate
streams of wealth that flow from your
mines, your timber, and your fisheries,
their joint and mighty volume wlH- he
Inferior to the streams of national
wealth, of domestic contentment, which
is one day destined to grow from out
the orchards of British Columbia.'
"In the southeast corner of the British Columbia building ot the exhibition
can be seen a fine display of the products of the Kootenay, In charge of J.
McPhee and John Hyslop, both practical fruit growers. The- fruit to arranged so as to form a background for
brandies of apples, cherries, peaches,'
plums, apricots, nectarines and small
fruit, which are all raised without Irrigation. The gooseberries are as large as
cherries They are exhibiting strawberries In bottles which measure eight
inches In circumference. A collection
of grain and grasses Is shown all this
year's growth. The clover is over five
feet high, timothy over six feet, wheat.
five and a half feet. The exhibit includes stuffed animals found In the Kootenay, minerals from some of the famous paying mines, and fresh trout
euuuht in the Kootenay streams, frozen
in ice.
STRUCKAT DEPTH
Rich Silver Ore Found in
La France
TWO YEARS' WOH WINS
Vein Two Feet Wide JHtconrtd te
Long Tonne! at 500 Foot Level���
Will Continue DCTelopment.
R. Armstrong, of Chic-go, and A. Miller, of Greenwood, returned Saturday
nlgbt from a visit to the La France
mine on La France creek, where T.
Wall ha* been continuing the work of
development begun two years ago. Mr.
Wall also arrived last night to get supplies for his camp.
Mr. Armstrong, interviewed, said:
"The results of the work Mr. Wall has
been doing are exactly what we hoped
for. We had a good showing of ore at
the ISO-foot level, carrying 200 ounces
in silver. We have now struck the same
ore in our tunnel at 600 feet depth.
"The vein is two feet wide and has
been followed for 200 feet. We have
not had an anaay made bat It to galena
ore of exactly the aame appearance as
what we found nearer the surface two
yeara ago.
"Just at present the work to slightly
hampered by surface water getting Into
the tunnel, but that should be over i i
another ten days.
"No, we have no particular plana at
preaent except to go on with the work
of uncovering the vein. We are sure

able to follow It for 600 feet. Considering that the vein to ot a fairly uniform witdh of two feet, and the value*
high, we have no reason tw be dissatisfied with the result of the work."
Mr. Armstrong and Mr. Miller represent a Chicago syndicate which owns
six claims on the creek, forming the La
France group. There are many other
propertie* In the immediate vicinity
with good showings of ore of the same
kind, but on which the development baa
not proceeded ao far aa tn the La
France.
So assured of the permanent prosperity of the property to Mr. Wall tbat he
has offered very generoua terms to
ranchers In the neighborhood to undertake to supply bis camp with fresh
fruit and vegetables. The success of
the La France will certainly tit, followed
by extensive work on other properties.
WRECK OFF 8AN  FRANCISCO.
Report That 100 Live* Are Lost by Collision  of Two Steamer*.
San Francisco, July 22.���News has
just been received here that the steamers Columbia and San Pedro were In
collision off Shelter Cove at midnight
on Saturday, night. The Columbia wa*
sunk and 100 lives lost.
New York, July 22.���The only
steamer named Columbia listed tn shipping registers as hailing from a Pacific
coast port is owned by the Oregon Railroad & Navigation Co., and halls from
Portland, Ore. She Is 310 feet long,
registers 1,746 tons and was built at
Chester, Pa., in 1880. The San Pedro
hails from San Francisco and is 163 feet
long, registers 569 tons and was built
in  1899 at Aberdeen, Mich.
It to reported that 80 of the passengers and crew of the Columbia were
saved and 160 were drowned, including
Captain Brown. The Columbia sailed
from here Saturday at 11 a. m. for
Portland. She had a passenger list of
189, 168 being cabin and 21 steerages.
The collision occurred at midnight
when all on board, save the lookout and
officers on tbe bridge, were asleep In
their berths. The Columbia was steaming north at an easy rate, having left
here noon Saturday. Suddenly out of
the fog loomed the dark hulk of the San
Pedro, southbound, which was evidently
out of her course. Whistles were blown
and frantic efforts were made by the
helmsmen of each vessel to avoid collision but they were of no avail. The
San Pedro struck the steamer on the
port bow, tearing an Immense hole in
her side through which the water
rushed In great volumes. Alarms .were
sounded throughout the passenger ship
and tae terrified passengers scrambled
from their staterooms In effort to escape from the doomed vessel. But the
time was too short to aid the life savers- The vessel sank within five minutes of the collision. A life raft was
launched with a number of passengers
on board, but only a few of the entire
number on board were saved. One
hundred lives were lost. The steamer
Roanoke, carrying a number of the
dead and aome of the rescued passengers, reached here at 6:16 this morning, bringing tbe aad news of the disaster. The Daily Canadian

PROVINCE    AND    DOMINION.
The Liberals of British Columbia are
evidently preparing io swallrtw their
campaign protestations of loyalty to the
province, and to endorse the decision ot
Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his colleagues
lhat there is no ground of complaint in
the readjustment of provincial subsidies and no case for Hotter Terms
Of course the great majority of Liberals have not been guilty of inch
treachery. But tb.* great majority Is
silent, and thfl ofhcinl mouthpieces of
the party are one by ono giving in their
adhesion to the doctrinos dictated from
Ottawa. The Victoria Timei led the
way; it has been followed by the
smaller Liberal publications. Ralph
Smith. M. P., who after Mr. Temple
man. is generally n-gnnlcd as the most
influential of Hritlsh Columbia's repre
sentatives at Ottawa, has made a public
statement that if the assets of the province had not been squandered there
would be no difficulty encountered in
raising revenues adequate both for administration and for development.
Under the circumstances the silence
of J. A. Macdonald, the official leaflet
of the provincial Liberals, Is inexplic
able.
Mr. Smith's statement would be ir
relevant, even If it were true. We are
not concerned now with the wisdom or
folly of past provincial administrations
They are interesting now only to students of history. The men who madi
the bargains, provident or improvident.
are nearly all now beyond the power oi
lhe electorate to reward or punish.
If a large part of llrltlsh Columbia'!
wealth has been alienated with too lit
tie return to the public treasury, the
experience Is, unhappily, not peculiar t<
Jlrltish Columbia among the provinces
of Canada.
But it Is with present conditions that
statesmen aie called upon to deal, and
it is in present conditions that the electors are interested. Hriiish Columbia is
still potentially the wealthiest province
of the Dominion. Her resources in minerals, timber and fisheries constitute an
assft which no other province can
equal. But those resources require for
their development a large initial public
exp mditure. The administration of new
di-tricts, too, Is on account of the physical features of Hritlsh Columbia and
the difficulties of communication and
transportation, far more costly here
than in any other province.
Moreover, Hritlsh Columbia was for
many years the only part of Canada
whose people derived no benefit from
the protective features of the National
Policy, which, by the way, was no part
of  their  confederation  compact.
Such, in brief, is the basis or Hritlsh Columbia's claim for exceptional
treatment in the adjustment of grants
from the Dominion to the provinces.
During two successive sessions tbe
Liberals in the provincial legislature,
led by .1. A. Macdonald, have given unqualified assent to the principle of Hritlsh Columbia's contention. That they
have criticized (he procedure followed
by Premier McHride Is not to the point.
Mr. Macdonald, with the concurrence
of his whole party, has gone quite as
far as the premier in his statement of
the rights of the province In the matter,
tn the legislature and in the constituencies during the last campaign, he repeatedly declared that were he entrusted with the duty of representing Hritlsh Columbia he would be no less firm
than Mr. McHrlde in Insisting upon Batter  Terms.
So Tar as the public has been informed Mr. Macdonald has not receded
from that position. Hut his prolonged
silence Is unfair to his followers and
to the country. The declarations of opposition to the provincial government's
stand have not come from Irresponsible sources. They have appeared In
the papers usually accepted as representing the Libera] party, and o��e has
been made a Liberal member of the
Domfnion parliament representing a
Hritlsh  Columbia constituency.
The position of Mr. Teiupleman la, of
couse, one of peculiar delicacy, and his
silence Is not unnatural.
Hut Mr. Macdonald Is not a member
of the Dominion cabinet, he is a provincial leader. He has repudiated the
charge that hlB policy on any public
question Is dictated or Influenced by the
party organization at Ottawa. His own
utterances on this issue, in its main
principles at least, have so far been entirely satisfactory. Hut his silence
makes it almost inevitable that the
declarations of Mr. Smith and of the
Victoria Times against tbe province's
contention should be accepted as the
voice or the Liberal  party.
For his own credit, as well as for his
interest as a public man, Mr. Macdonald cannot too early or too emphatlcal-
1\ disassociate himself from such an
unworthy  stand.
EDITORIAL   COMMENT.
Color is lent to the frequent rumors
of an early appeal to the constituencies
by Sir Wilfrid Laurier by his own
words in replying to the welcome of
Quebec, in which he said he would, "before long," ask for their support again.
The statement that he had given his
personal assurance to Mr. Borden that
there would be another session before
dissolution is only a rumor, which has
never been confirmed by Mr. Horden.
It Is almost inevitable that there should
bt? an early dissolution and appeal. The
Liberal organization, the Machine, is
still strong for the purpose of winning
elections, but it seems incapable of securing as candidates men fitted by character and ability to administer depart
ments or to restore public confidence iu
the government, it would be far cheap
er for Sir Wilfrid to trust to the waters of a general election to remove the
barnacles than to allow the public to
watch the operation. There are a few
things, such as the London conspiracy
trial, which cannot be escaped even by
dissolution, but it would be tar better
polftics for Sir Wilfrid to have the elections over before the revelations of the
work of the Machine are completed.
TIMBER NOTICES.
The Hermit Kingdom of Koreu is now
to all inteuts and purposes a subject
province of the Japanese Empire. The
result was inevitable. Korea was powerless to defend Itself or to preserve Its
own neutrality. Japan could not afford
to allow the peninsula to fall under foreign control or iniluence. The seizure,
If recent events amount to that, may be
Justified by wise and just administration, as Hritain lias justified her occupation of Egypt.

torpedo boat is to the cruiser, auch, to
some extent. Ih the vedette torpedo
launcher  to   the   torpedo   boat.
Count Kecope'R vessel coats only $10,-
000, and It requires only two men to
handle It. For the price of a battleship, therefore, it would be possible to
construct some 500 of these little vessels, and what battleship or what fleet
of ships could hope to maintain a block-
sde In such a nest of marine hornets,
each provided with a most deadly sting?
The two men who form the crew of
the vedette are not over occupied. One
of them devotes his attention entirely
to the motor, which la a petroleum machine; the other steers, ami at the prop1
er moment sendH the torpedo on its
mission.
The great advantage of the petroleum
motor over steam is that for the same
power it is much lighter. The motor
while In action produces neither smoke
nor noise, the vessel itself rnovely light
ly on the Burface of the water, with no
wash and with as little as possible to
attract the attention of the eye or joar.
If the vedette accomplishes Its pur-
IK>se It destroys a fighting machine uf
ih- highest value. At the worst, if It
is sunk, the loss ia only that of two men
and   $10,000.
Hut Cout Recope has hit upon something more ingenious still. These boats
are so portable that he has been able
to design a vessel protected like a battleship, and having the same size, but
which, instead of carrying the artillery
of an ordinary battleship, will simply
serve as transport for 15 torpedo
launches. Its weapons, bo to speak, will
not be guns, but vedettes. It will have
the same speed as the squadron which
It will accompany to the scene of the
battle. Arrived there, it wilt scatter
upon the water its 15 vedettes and they
will then do their work.
|�� One can imagine nothing more terrible than, in an engagement betweon big
battleships, suddenly to find these microscopic but deadly engines darting In
and out in every direction. The idea is
perfectly feasible, because, as Count Re-
cope points out, and as can be verified
by reference to history, there^never has
been a great sea fight that did not take
place close to the shore.
The speed of the vedette is about 17
knots, which is quite sufficient for its
purpose. The French government has
faith in the vedette, and the flrst of its
kind is now on Its way to Cherbourg,
there to co-operate with the submarines
anil other means of coast defence.
"I am not only an inventor," said
Count Recope, with his illuminating
smile, "I sell these little vessels at $10,-
000 a piece. Small countries tbat find
the need of being reassured will find
them a good investment."
