A great deal  of misunderstand- <
,     . . ,   i
mg having  arisen  concerning  the |
objects o- ihe Imp riai Government
in sending officers to this  country
to purchase horses, or lather to see:
if l.orses suitable  for the  British!
Arm,- can  be  purchased,   the  ioi- j
lowing short summary of the  posi-1
tion should prove of value.    This
statement may be  regard!ci as  absolutely correct and authoritative.
First and foremost, the demands
of the British army in. peace time
can be easily met within the four
corners of the United Kingdom, j
That demand is not large, and may
be taken as a normal one of 2,500;
horses annually, rising in certain
years to-possibly 3.500 of all kinds
and classes. .
There   is an   idea  abroad,   and i
certain ministers and statesmen  in
this country  have  brought  it  tor-
ward and may be considered responsible for it, if.the Imperial Govern- \
ment   will   purchase   annually,   a
fixed number of horses,   say   from;
300 to 500, in Canada, a great stim- i
ulus will be given to horse breeding
generally, and to breeding  of the!
military type eff hors.'in particular. I*
Falling in with this idea,   the Imperial  authorities   are   anxious  to!
put it to the test and,   for  reasons'
of their own,  thev  fully   recognise |
the advautage that will accrue to
tbe Empire from the opening up of
a large and limitless market that can
be drawn upon to meet the immense
.demand that will-be-.cre.ited in time
��� of  war.    The  real  question  then
that has now to be answered by the
practical   experiment   of purchase'
during tbe next few months, is, can]
���suitable   horses  he  procured,   and;
at an average price that will, avIiph j
the horses are landed   in  England,
favourably compare with tbat  paid
for   remounts   throughout    Great
Britain and Ireland?
The average price paid in England j
is an open secret; it is ��$0, or  say j
$200.    The cost ot freight and insurance  will certainly  not exceed
another $50, leaving $1-50,   or pos-,
ibly slightly more, to  be  paid  for
the animals selected on the spot. A
higher price can be paid for horses
of special colour and type . such as
horses suitable.for officers' chargers
and   Household  Cavalry.      It   is,
therefore obvious that Canada is on
.its trial as to its ability to  supply a
suitable i.t rse for army purposes.
It.is of more importance to Canada than to anyone else t iat, as the
norsrs .   11    ie   regarded
in Hn.-.v       as we I as in Uus coun
cry  us typicii , it ".ill  b-  in  every

Admiral iRojestvenSky's last tele-

that H. M. S. Shearwater lias been

The   news   that  the  permanent

from 200a to 4000  points to the
probability  that  the  difference  in

It is our painful duty to record
tlie. death of one of our brightest
young girls, Mabel B., the eldest
child of Mr. and Mrs. D, McGregor,
���"t Hi5 tender age of 15;. years,
ami which occurred on Sunday last
at 8:45 a-m--. after a very short illness from pneumonia.
The funeral took place on Tuesday afternoon from the deceased's
late home, wheresia very impressive
service was held by Rev. _V. K.
���MilleY, who was -asked "to officiate
iu the absence ot a Presbyterian
pastor. The following hymns were
sung during the service: "Jesus
lover of my so-al," "What-a friend
we hsve i-uj��.*-js" and ''Safcirr'tne
arms of Jesus," tiiis last being the
deceased's favorite.
Shortly alter the service commenced, Principal Dixon, accompanied by Mr...I&arrison suk1-Misses
C;��rss and Davis, arrived with quite
a large contingent from the school,
who wished to show the respect
which they .could express. in no
other way.
H. N, Rich undertook the "funeral arrangements and had as pallbearers the following young men:
Chas. ���storthnr, D. M. Ellis, T.
Shortreed, R. Stokes, E- Brodie
and W. Lixor..

While from the school we find the
following message of love and sympathy: With loving sympathy from
the pupils of Division III., Ladner
Scho6i; a .similar one from "Division
IV.; in loving memory of Mabel
ftom her schoolmates; with sincere
sympathy from some of the pupils,
Ladner school.
Mabel was a great favorite among the school children, especially
the little girls, who used to look up
to her as to on; ready to lead them
on to-sport-and.pastime.
The waters of the Fraser claimed
another victim on Sunday morning
when Jos. W. Kidd, age 19 years
and to months, 'Sank below them
after a plucky swim ' by *whioh
tie almost gained a safe footing -on
the shore.
Tbe young man, .who twas ta
son of Thomas Kidd, exM. P. IJ,,
of Woodwards, set out in company
with a friend, John Livingstone, to
row to the latter's father's place
near E.wen'.s on Lulu Island.
They had come some*distance from
Woodward's and ,w_re a little above
Brodie's cannery, wben the boat,
which, was a small one, tipped over
and both the young fellows were
thrown into the river. They each
managed to get a grip on the upturned craft and they clung for
something like a half an hour. During that time a tug.passed, but tbe
efforts of the two. lads, to attract the
attention of those aboard 'the boat
were unavailing.
It would appear from what tbe
survivor, Livingstone, says that
Kidd decided, after failing to secure

The traveling public will he interested iu the announcement that lor
this summer at least tiiere will be
maintained a rapid transit river service between New We.stmiin.ter ami

needed each year for the summer

repeated, Tor the prospe.tus seems
to offer .ill that cou'.d be wished.

may make the   "round  the  world |

fast boat, the railway and the niter-!

attractive outing for city folk dur:!
the   dog-days,    of   great    benefit
for the business community, especi- i

great value to the local Tourist as- ,
