Ottawa. Out., Mny 12.-Messrs.
Coiirboltl and Mara had an interview
yesterday with tbe Minister of Justice
in reference to the appointment of
County court judges for the districts of
Kootenay and Vancouver City, owing
however, to the policy of retrenchment
which the Government has adopted, it
is doubtful whether uuy appointments
will be made this year.
Inspector Fletcher bus broil instructed by the Post master General, on Mr.
M.im's representations tu provide increased mail service between Nakusp
and New Denver aud also on Kuotenay
The House sat iu committee Friday

House only sut an hour last evening,
jtnssed a fe\f private bills and advanced four minor Government measures a stage.
The Inspector of Fisheries and the
British Columbia members had an interview with C. H. Tuppcr yesterday
iu regard to experimenting with lobster proposition iu the waters of the
Pacific. Mr. Mow.it was engaged iu
this work for many yours on the Atlantic, cjiist and lielioves that lobsters
could bu shipped to British Columbia
if they were not placed iu water en
route, their only requirement being au
even temperature in the cur and plenty
of natural food. The Minister promised to authorize the necessary expenditure.
Toronto, Mny 12. ���At University

gang of fellow students, blindfolded

St. John, May 12.-The Coldbrook
rolling mills will reduce wages after
the 21st, due to the duties imposed
on iron, which discriminate against
Canadian rolling mills in favor of the
United States iron mines.
The Valley cotton mill closed last
evening, throwing i'iOO people out of
employment, caused by inability to
compete with the Upper Citiindiaii
combine and over production.
The Coat und Wuato of War.
Ill less than 300 years Great Britain
alone has spent ��1,"159,000,000 in war.
The annual cost of the British Army
is ��17,000,000, of the navy, ��14,000,-
000. It is estimated that the world's
cannon has cost the world's taxpayers
u little over ��8,000,000. The cost of
the world's wars since the Crimean
War has' been  enough to give ��2 to
every man, woman, and child un tbe
I globe Little Switzerland has an
I enormous uriny in proportion to popu-
llittion. The population is 2,900,000,
j the standing army is 1211,000. With
I the exception of Belgium, whoso debt
bus been incurred for internal improvements, every European national debt
is in great part a war debt. The national debt of Great Britain at the
Revolution of HI88 was only ��'���! 14,000.
Since then it hns increased through
war expenses to the enormous total uf
��1185,000,000. Iu the event uf war
tbe armies of the European nations
can be raised to !l,;l 1.1,000 men, and
the daily expense will be nearly ��4,
000,000, to suy nothing of the destruction of life and property. Dining the
most peaceful years the world has
11,700,000 soldiers, who are withdrawn
from productive occupations to pose lis
soldiers. Tho pny, equipments, food,
uud clutbing of these men cost tho
world's taxpayers nearly $510,000 a
day. ���Pearson's Weekly.

Swift Locomotives.
One of the London and Northwestern engines during the race tu Scotland
iu 1888 covered the distance from
Preston to Carlisle ninety miles, in
exactly ninety minutes, having a
gradient of uo less than 1 in 75 tu
(limb between Tebny and Shalt Summit. One of the most famous engines
of this company is known ns the
"Charles Dickens" bus, since February, 1882, niiiile this journey every
day, working up the 8,il0 a.m. frem
Manchester and returning with the
4 p.m. from Eiistou, Ou September
12, 1891, it completed the two thousand six hundred and lifly-tirst trip,
having accomplished the extraordinary
feat uf running 1,000,000 miles in I)
years uud two hundred and nineteen
days. No other engine iu the world
bus run so many miles iu a like period
of timo. Between these dates, iu addition to the Manchester uud London
trips, ninety-two other journeys were
made, and altogether, 12,515 tons ol
coul were consumed. At the end of
February, 189.1, tlie total mileage run
by the "Charles D.ckens " was 1,138,-
���'I can never paint a picture,"
So she suid,
And she put iu twain the canvass
She had spread.
Put her paints and brushes by,
Had one little harmless cry,
Still she said,   -Resolved am I
Art to wed."
"So I'll write a wondrous poem
To the moon,
When it shines iu solemn splendor
At night's noon.
Though I paint not, I can write,
Now my poem I'll indito,"
Aud she rhymed the livelong night,
" Moon-rune-spoon."
But she ne'er became a poet ���
Her young head
Ilnu sufficient sense to know it,
So she said:
"Since I've missed the muse ot  song,
And to art may not belong,
Would it thon bo very wrong
Jim tu wed ? "
Now she makes her home a picture -

Lives a tender poem daily,
Fame apart,
Better these than writing rune,
Rhymed harmoniously with spoon,
Poems of Love's honey moon,

Near the Pare Monccnn Is n pretty

(if clematis the homo of a prett. ��� widow
of 21- the Countess of Viry. She had
as a pet and constant companion a deli-
cute little poodle, nil white anl woolly,
to which was given as its sole nourish

and a sweet biscuit at ni^ht. Ills name
was Nito.
It was 4 o'clock. Louise was in her

like a butterfly, and stopping from time

" that is not nico of yon."
Louise nml Jacques agreed so well that

The Countess rang the bell. John, her
valet, took her orders, and came back a
quarter of an hour later with a man
carrying in his hand n leather case such

"Who is that person?" asked M. de
The Countess answered:
"It is M. James, the dentist."
Tne little Couutess entered her boudoir, followed by Nito, his tail between

Louise returned soon afterwarus,
ashamed and humbled, and gave to M.

social duties to appear among her

from the otliers or sitting iu u corner
with a serious air, her mouth closed
like n prison door.
"Poor Countess I" said some e..l*
minded ones; "how altered she isl Every
day she looks older I"
And Jacques felt his love diminish
little by little. He seemed to begin to
understand that what he loved in her
was especially her imilo, her playfulness, her gayety���and be also became
One day he went in despair to the
"Louise," he raid, throwing himself
at her feet, "do you love me still?"
"I have sworn to love yon always,"
she answered,
"Will yon prove to me the sincerity
of yonr words?"
"I ask nothing else,"
"Well, then, if you love me, have the
dentist put in a, new tooth,"
"What folly Is this?" said Louise,
weeping, "I was right when I said
that you wonld not love me any more.
That is just like yon men. And you reproach us for being enpricons I"

On another page mention is made ot
tho fact that tho shipments of British
Columbia hops to England during the
past season hnve proved very satisfactory. Messrs. Norman & Co., a loading produce linn in Londun, say that
subject tu their flavor, which is similar to East Keuts, being maintained,
they nre to bo preferred to anv that are
imported nud would carry all befure.
The iiiniiiteiiiiiico of this quality is of
the tit most Importance to the hop industry uf the I'acilic Province and on
its being successfully kept np depends
the future of tbe tinde. Methods of
cultivation are, of co.irse, of considerable importance, but tlio chief thing is
the drying of the hops after they are
picked. First in importance is the
construction of suitable kilno or oast
houses, then the employment of experienced dryers. Incompetent dryers,
may at the outset, give British Columbia hops a bail iiiiinn in England from
which it will take them years to
recover, and the editor, who spout his
curly days in the bop districts of Herefordshire inul Kent, ami who knows
whereof ho speaks on this matter,
would urge tho importation of dryers,
if necessary, from England. llritish
Columbia bop growers will mnke a
great mistake if they go south of the
International Boundary for points on
bop drying. California bops, ns is
well known, have an unsatisfactory
flavor, as they cannot be brewed
alone, but have to lie blended with
other growths. There is every reason
to believo thnt British Columbia can
pro luce hops of satisfactory flavor,
which should fetch much larger prices
in England than Cnliforninns.
If the editor of the Western World
can be of any assistance to B.C. bop
growers in this connection, hc will be
inos' happy lu give thorn his services
aud to put tlicin in communication
with .'calling growers in England who
could select dryers for them.
