Societies Re-union at Nanaimo.
At the second annual re-union of
secret societies held at Nanaimo on
the ]lth inst., when prominent members of the mystic craft had gathered
together from the cities of Nanaimo,
Vancouver, New Westminster and
Victoria! an opportunity was presented
and reference made to the action ot the
representatives of the British Columbia
Medical Association residing at Victoria, fn refusing to attend the members of the various secret societies of
that city, lt appears that the societies
have been paying "JU-OO a year for each
in standing to the medical officer
appointed by the lodge in consideration
of his attendance and medicines to the
members. No reason has been assigned for the action taken by the doctois,
but it is assumed by society men that
tbe medical profession desired to increase the amount of sick benefit paid
by the lodges from HOO to 110.00 per
week and allow the iudividual members an opportunity of choosing their
own physician, thus dividing thu
prnctirt more etenly among the doctors. On the other hand, it is claimed
by soolety men that the privilege of
choosing lodge physicians���and it is a
practice that the societies havo enjoyed
for many years���hns proved the moat
satisfactory, both to ths lodges and
the members thereof, The small sums
set aside monthly from the individual
member provide for those who may
fall tor the time being from the ranK
of wage-earners, nnd it certainly seems
reasonable that the producing classes
would be in a better position to contribute toward suoh sicknesses than
the afflicted one. Another great objection which the lodges have to the
practice tbe Victoria physicians wish
to establish is lbs confidence existing
between patient and doctor. Certain
prescribed Illnesses will nullify not
only the medical attention hut also the
sick benefits payable to members.
Lodges bave been refused by private
doctors to disclose the oondition ot
certain members, urging that such
would be a breach oi etiquette and of
no conoern to tbe lodge. It will be
easily seen how difficult is the task of
safeguarding the lodges against such
svlll* The Victoria societies have been
fortunate In securing the services of
three physicians to carry oa the work
in faoe of the opposition created by the
Medical Association., but -ore tmaWe to
obtain additional assistance until tho
present Medical Act is amended, conferring as it dnes rhe powers of examination of new arrivals by a now very
interested board. The mntter has been
placed in the hands of the Government
for over a month and as yet there nre
no signs of dealing with the subject.
Representations have n^ain been made
within the past week, that the matter
may be dealt with before the present
session is ended. To strengthen the
hands of the committee appointed b.v
the Federated Board, the following set
of resolutions was read by the president of the Federated Board of Secret
Societies, W. H. Price, and was carried
by the meeting unanimously: ���
Whereas tbe legislature of the Province of British Columbia have enacted
legislation conferring special privileges
upon the learned profession, and
Whereas the powers and privileges
so conferred were for the purpose oT
qualification aud the protection of the
public interest, and
Whereas the action of certain pro
fesjuoual classes has been directed
against the accustomed and legitimate
active uses of benevolent societies and
inimical to the best interests of the
public welfare, and
Whereas difficulty exists in obtain'
ing medical practitioners to carry on
the work of benevolent institutions,
Whereas the B. C. Medical Act excludes from practice in British Colutn-
pia graduates from all colleges and
universities unless they pass the
examination provided by the B. C\
Medical Council,
Therefore bo it resolved that the
combined benevolent societies of British
Columbia here assembled protest
against the unjust discrimination of
the B, C. Medical Council ami memorialize the B. C. legislature to repeal,
during the present session, obnoxious
clauses in the Medical Act and admit
upon the Provincial Medical Register |
all practitioners possessing n medical
diploma from British or Canadian
colleges or universities, holding ;i
license in any province of the Dominion of Canada, and
Be it further resolved that we vigorously protest against class legislation
and ask that equal privileges be given
the members of the legal and dental
Be it further resclved that copies of
these resolutions be presented to the
Premier, Hon. James Dunsmuir, and
also to the press.

Kussinn  Uoueral   Says  His Government  Has Declared  War on
China-Uprising In Corea.
Loudon, Aug. 2I. ���Fires, fighting
ami disstmtiou, are apparently following iu tho wuko of the relief of Pekiu.
'ihe Dully Mail published dispatches
Iro'-u the Ohinese capital dated as late
us Auk. 17, declaring a great fire was
then raging in the Imperial city. The
Hussimi commander had declined to ao
cupt tha decision of tho order generals
not to violate tho Imperial precincts
and street bghtiug was going on.
Uen. Gbuffen, so it is asserted, maintained the Chinese hud beeu adequately punished already und thut it would
be unwise to tak-.- the Imperial palace.
Tbis explains the withdrawal of tbs
Americans after breaching throe gates
as cabled by the special correspondent
of ths Amocluted Press. The Kussinn
general, however, maintained tbat his
government hud deomred war nguinsl
ChiuA and thut thoiofore thero were no
reasons to prevent bim carrying hostilities into ihe sacred preeiuots. Judging front various and in many cased
contradictory dispatches that have
reached Europe this morning from Pekin, the commanders eventually adopted
a middle course, for a Renter telegram
asserts that sentties were placed to prevent looting. Hence it is presumed
that tha In penal buildings although
captured will not be destroyed.
The fires appear to be incendiary and
to be caused by ihe Ohinese themselve.
All the dispatches point to the fact that
with the latest received bere trom
Pekin the oommanders were somewhat
at sea regarding fnture action, all
awaiting instructions from their governments. The foreign residents ap*
pear to have been Bent to Tien Tsiu,
although the St. Petersburg correspondent of the Daily Mail says the ministers
will not leave Pekin until negotiations
for indemnity are nnder way.
Neither the commanders nor the diplomats were in communication with
the Ohinese government on Aug, 17.
They were then BearobiDg for Prince
Among the puzzling reports as to tbe
wheieahouts of the empress dowager is
ouo from St. Petersburg that Bbe is in
the vicinity of Pekin, but surrounded.
The emperor seems to have disappeared
coinpelely. It is officially reported that
tbe minister of the Netherlands, Dr.
Kuobl, was slightly wounded during
the Biff e.
St. Petorsbnrg dispatches announce
good progress fn the Manohnriau campaign. The town of Mergen was captured Ang. 18, with trilling losses,
while tlie Ohinese suffered severely,
leaving 10 gnus, 700 rifles and large
quantities of ammunition in the hands
of the Russians.

"Have I ever killed a man?"
Of a sudden, as be lay dosing on his
bed In camp one day, Private Holllns
asked this question of himself. He
bad been In battle and skirmish. Hc
had fired away his 40 rounds and fired
to kill, but as he began to recall all
bis battles he could not remember tbat
he had ever had an euemy bo near and
so fairly before bim tbat his bullet bnd
surely done tbe work. Tbere wero few
soldiers who boasted of taking life.
Tbere were sharpshooters wbo had
brought down a dozen men, but tliey
uever talked about it Men were promoted for desperate fighting, which
Romctluics meant killing single banded,
but they were proud only of the promotion. It was a curious question
Private Holllns asked of himself, nnd
It led to strange results. Hc was not
a bloodthirsty man, aud yet as hc lay
thinking the Idea came to lilm that he
had not done himself Justice as a soldier. He hod not killed n mnn. When
tlio war was over and hc bnd returned
home, he would be asked thu question.
Ills friends aud neighbors wouldn't be
satisfied with his record of battles, but
would sweep lt aside and say:
���'Yes; wo know you wore In Ave or
six battles and tbat you fired hundreds
of bullets at the enemy, but can you
truthfully say you ever brought a mnn
He couldn't say It, aud be felt that
be would lose enste. This feeling
brought a sudden resolve. It was g
resolve that startled him at first, but
the more be thought of It the more determined he was to carry it out- Ho
wonld kill a man; he would do it next
time he went on picket There wero
no orders against firing. It was by
tacit agreement among tbe pickets that
they refrained. If ho brought one of
the enemy down, he would uot be reproved even If uot praised. He would
not boast of tbe kill to bis comrades,
hut when he reached home nnd farmers nnd their wives and sons sat listening to his stories of war he could
answer the question they would be
sure to put, aud answer In the nlllnu-
utive. It was a fortnight before PrI
vale Holllns wus detailed far picket
duty, lie wns uot impudent. He wus
willing that time should puss, but
when the opportunity cnuie lie wottltj
kill a mnn. He uever wavpreil lu this
"Tills Is your post, Holllns," unhl the
corporal ns he left lilm oue afteriiooq
nt the edge of a wood under it largo
oak. "We don't know exactly when
the enemy's picket Is. hu) it's boi.iu
where around thnt |og limine. However. If you dop't get joo fresh pud gti
to walking hround hi the open lie won't
bother you. There hasn't heen a shot
tired along here for two weeks. If you
go la for roasted uc-orps, don't mnke
much ofn lire."
"Todny ( shnll kill g man." snld
Private Holllns na he wns left alone,
nnd be began his preparations nt once.
At loug rifle shot, away nerdss an old
eottonfield, was a tog house with n
few fruit trees standing nlinut It. One
might be sure the -tanner wns off to
war and thnt wife ami children. If they
bad not abandoned lhe place, were
having a miserable existence. Holllns
crept down to Ihe fringe pf bu��hcs ou
bis side of the field nud peered nnd
watched and waited like nn Apache lu
ambush. Kor pn hour hc sgw nothing.
Then a gnunt. Ill used dog came among
the trees nnd trotted about In tbe opeu
In a sneaking, furtive way. If thu dog
wns there, the house must be inhabited, lie had Just come to this conclusion when he caught sight of a figure
amoug the trees. It was between the
house aud the hushes, where ho believed the enemy's picket was lying.
It must be the picket oq his way to
nud from the well. Perhaps he had
gone to the house to light his pipe or
boll his coffee. There was a glimpse
and It woe gone Another glimpse, another hiding, and then the figure was
fair to view. It was a long shot, but
a pretty fair target, and without an
Instant's hesitation he drew up bis gun
and fired. When ho looked over tbe
smoke, the figure was gouo.
"But I know I hit him, and he's lying dead on the grass," said the soldier
as he reloaded bis gun. ''Now I can
tell them at borne that 1 killed a mag.
Mighty loug sbot, but I dropped blto
for sure."
The dog was still In the open. As
tbe sbot rang out be looked back
omens tha trees. As tbe echoes died
away hc turned his bead toward Hul
llus and bowled dismally- A moment
later aud the figure of a young girl
appeared beside the dog.' She was
bareheaded, barefooted and uot over
S yeara old. ilosllatlug for ouly a moment, she began advancing across the
field. The smoke from the soldier's'
musket bad located him. The dog followed at her heels, head and tail down,
and with surprise Holllus watched the
girl's approach. It took her five minutes to cross the field. She came
straight at bim as be stood up among
I the bushes, and when Bbe reached biro
She extended her hand and clasped his
���nd said:
"Come a loug. you!"
He rested his musket against a log
and permitted her to lead him out Into
the open und across the f eXd. He did
not Inquire why she bad comcvjlc did
���ot ask where sho was leading him.
Not a question passed his lips, nor did
she speak further. Straight across the
field to the trees among which his victim had stood, but long before he got
there he saw a form on the grass. By
and by they were close up to it, and
the girl let go of his hand and pointed
and snld:
"You shot mam!"
It wasn't a mnn lying dead on the
grass, soldier or farmer, but a woman.
The soldier rubbed Ills eyes and looked
nrotmd In a dazed way. A boy. of 10
aud a girl of 5 cuuie out of tho bouse
nnd stood there und looked from tbo
soldier to the dead woman nml hack.
They spoke no word; they shed no
tears. It was true that the enemy's picket post was In the bushes a few rods
nway. The man ou post came out of
his hiding. He enme walking slowly
down, nnd when hc had rehched the
body there was a gasp In hia tliront.
He looked around upon the children,
looked up at the blue sky ns If speaking to God uud, with a groan, turned
his bnck on the place and returned ta
his post.
"Well?" queried Holllns of the children us they continued to stare al him.
They simply pointed to thu mother
tying dead and uttered no word. The
soldier tried to speak again, hut he
could not. With face whiter than tho
one on the grass, with quivering chin
and blinded eyes, he made his wny
slowly across the old field to tils post
As he lurched and staggered he heard
the dog howl again, but no one fired
upon bim, no one called to him. Wben '
lie reached his post, bo sat dowu on
the grouud and covered his fact' with
bis hands and groaned. Au hour later
the corporal came with the relief. Iloh

and ns tbey looked at each otlur tite\

An Immense Sum Expended Annually In This Form uf Sport.
As to the sums speut ou shooting
In Scotland, so large is the total that
it Is a difficult matter to arrive even
nt un approximate estimate. In Perth-
���Ciire atone there are 4U3 shootings, of
which about four-fifths are fet to ten-
nuts and bring In about ��150,000 a
year, or an average of ��400 a year,
which seems about a fair estimate If
It be borue In mind that this 1b au expensive country and thnt 00 of its best
shuotlugs bring ��30,000, or nn average
of ��700 a year. In tbe whole of Scotland there are about 4,000 shootings,
nud ns each of tbem must at least employ one keeper nnd one gillie during
tbe shooting season some estimate
may he formed of the money expeuded
In wages and the number of people
In tbo deer forests and on the larger
shootings tbere will often bo from four
to six men permanently cngnged and
from six to eight others wurklug for
tbe shooting season only. In a well
known forest where I once spont many
pleasant days there were three foresters, three gillies and three pony men
out each day. On the grouse ground
there were three keepers, with three
undcrkeepers, a kennel man aud two
carriers going to and from the nearest
railway station, a totnl of 18 men nnd
five horses, not to mention tho ponies
kept for riding Into the forest nnd
those kept to carry grouse panniers.
On this property three rides could stalk
each day, while threo other parties of
two each could shoot grouse, or the
six could combine for driving.���Chambers' Journal.

Pekin, Auk 14, by -way of Ohe Fao,
Aug. an.���The American and Bneelan
flags were [iluuted ou the east -wall ot
Pekin at 11 o'olook yesterday morning.
The Indian troops entered tbe British
legation at 1 o'olook and the Americans
at 8. They were givon a joyful reception Irom the wall. The emaciated
tenant's coold havo lasted only a little
longer. Tbey had only three days'
rations. The Ohineae hud heen attacking them furiously for two days. Four
thousand shells fell iu the legation in
the .lege Sixty-live wero killed and
100 wouuded. The Japanese began
the bottle before daylight and they are
���till fighting about the north wall
where part of the Ohinese are defending the Imperial oity. The Japanese
oasuaitlos have not yet been ascertained. The KuBaiaus have live killed and
twelvo wounded. Tbe Americans and
British had few wounded. The plan
was to make a general altaok today,
troops arriving at camp five miles east
whore they wero to remain all night.
They were completely exhausted and
slept in tho corn fields in tbe rain,
The generals, however, alarmed at the
sounds of a heavy attaok on the legations, pushed forward independently,
the British, Americans and Frenoh (?)
on the left of tbe river aud the Bus*
Bians and JapaneBeon ihe right. Be*
ginning at 2 o'olook yesterday morning
Japanese diverted tbe brunt of the resistance to the northern oity, their artillery engaging the Ohinese heavily
there, The Americans and British met
only alight resistance unlit they entered the oity, where there was street
fighting. Beilly's battery attemped to
reach the Inner wall. The troops finally entered the foreign settlement
through tho canal. Oonsp.ny E, of the
Fourteenth United Stales Infantry,
planted its Hag on the outer wall,
Musician Titns scaling tba wall with a
rope, by meaus of whioh others ollmbed
to the top. Tho Ohinese had continually violated the armiatloe. Tho food
supplies left for the legations by the
Empress Dowager wero only sufficient
for one day.

A  Peculiar Dlddiae Thut Waa Killed

In the tight between the Monitor nnd
Merriume it wus fuuud that tbere was
uot sutticient air In tbe tlimited steamer for tbe crew and tbat the suffocating
gases generated by the explosion of
gunpowder found their way below and
rendered It practically Impossible fur
tbe men to work. Necessity therefore
compelled the Introduction of some apparatus fur Artificial ventilation.
The old methods lu vogue for hundreds of years hud been rotulued even
under the new conditions and but for
the striking exhibition uf direct Interference with lighting capacity would
have remained for many years longer.
In the Monitor was placed n rotary
blower, worked by steam. Air was
thus drown from ono half of the steamer through a system of pipes and
forced Into the otlier. Various changes
wore made In later Ironclads of this
period. In somo the air was drawn
down the turrets ond forced throughout the vessel, thus rendering them
more thnn ever liable to suffocate the
men below In battle, while in others the
supply was obtained through armored
cylinders nnd forced out through the
It was In the early Ironclads thnt n
peculiar disease develuped whleh, lie
ing coutltied to those vessels, was soon
designated Ironclad fever. In tills nf-

much like those of typhus, hut in n
short time severe occipital pain was
followed by complete aphonia nnd this

of ventilating appliances caused thr
disappearance of this singular disease.

The trucks of London are many,
uud some of them seem very str.ingi
to n Canadian. One occupation by
which u score of Br J tons ure said to
earn their livelihood is that of 'poking firos." It is thus desMbcd oy a
London exchange, and whatever else
may be thought of tlie story, It
speaks well for the .lews of ICuglund
as faithful keepers of their law.
By tho Rabbinical law, no .lew is
allowed to kindle or mend uny lire
on tho Sabbath, und in certuiu plnre.
in England, where Jews uro ver)
numerous, this prohibition makes it
nocessary that persons shall be employed from Sunset on Friday to the
same hour on Saturday, In going
from house to house lighting flros and
lumps,  nnd uUundiug  to  them.
One  woman     In     tho  Enet   End  of
London often hus ns many as fiftj
houses to attend to, nnd draws (.mall
fees from each of them. It is not long
since -a male "lire-poker" in that
quarter died worth more thnn ��'!0(i,
which he hud saved out of liis earnings.
It often happens at the East End
that a strict Jew goes out into tho
street and snys to some Christian
passer-by, "Would yon be so kind
ns to como indoors nnd light my
lamp? The fire-poker bus failed me."
Many a tip do tho police constables

Her La��t Drink.
In Hyde Park lives a young matron
who Is of such a high nervous temperament that If she drinks the very smallest amount of alcoholic stimulant be
fore going to bed the result Is sleeplessness for tbe remntndcr of the night.
Some nights ago a number of friends
dropped In for tbe evening, nnd Ihe
husband, who, by tho wny, Is a southerner, suggested that he mnke a mint
Julep for each of the company, The
suggestion was received wilh delight,
and the Juleps were promptly mixed.
In his wife's glnss, however, he put
only enough whisky to flavor the
wnter, probably not more than n tea-
spoonful. Of tbis she sipped nhout
half. The result, however, wns the
same. She was troubled with Insomnia
all uight long, nnd It wns not until 5
o'clock tn tbe morning thnt she dropped off to sleep nud, ns a consequence, wns not called for breakfast.
At 10 o'clock she came down stairs
and hearing the voices of children on
the front porch stopped to listen. Her
heart filled with motherly pride as she
heard ber elder son, a buy of 0, telling
seven or eight children from tlio neighborhood thnt they must uut mnke tuo

Appeal* to 1'Vnr.
The appeals to fear havo well nigh
ceased, and yet there Is no fact which
we are so compelled to see ns tho fact
of retribution. The law of retribution
works in our present life. We become
aware of It in our earliest infancy, nud
we never become developed In clinrac-
ter until we have learned to fonr Hint
which Is evil nnd to shun tbe consequences of sin. There Is n sense of
righteousness in nil men, and nil men
know that unrighteousness brings punishment It Is fair to assume thnt
what is a part of man's vory structure
here will continue hereafter. We may
give up entirely the notion of n material hell, but we cannot give up the
doctrine of retribution. Suffering must
follow sin, and therefore to appeal to
fear Is not only legitimate, but It Is In
accordance with tlie structure of man's
nature.���North American Review.

A wealthy American who became a
convert to Home wns very generous to
Pope Leo XIII In money matters. He
had done many gulieroua tilings, and
the pupe had rewarded him with orders and medals gnlurc, I'or once a
year tlds convert made a pilgrimage to
Hume, where he was kindly received
by tlie holy futher as n son aud generally, until the orders wore exhausted,
each time was bestowed with some
fresh honor. On such occasions all
these brave metal pieces were attached
to the rich A mor lean's breast.
"I'll soon end that," the pope remarked to a confidante who was at his side
during the luveu. "Next time I shall
give him n snuffbox," whicli he did,
und a beautiful Jeweled box it wns.
The following year the American
turned up again aud was granted an
audience, when to the holy father's
consternation the faithful sou of tlie
church appeared not ouly with nil his
medals, but with the snuffbox attached
to his waistcoat.
"The next time," the pope said, with
a comical sigh, "I shall present lilm
with a marble topped tnble. It is tlie
only thing 1 can think of that he can't
t'e to his waistcoat."
