NOTES ON FOREICfN MISSIONS.
Th* Powers have practically witb
drawn from China, but the interest in
Ohina bas not subsided. Every intelligent man who longs for the betterment ot tho world must continue to fix
hit sttenijon upon a country that contains ons quarter ot the world'* popu-
Ittion.
Th* latest snd most eneoursgisg
sews is that the Empress Is quietly
enacting the very lawsshsio violently
fuppresaed a few monthi ago. The
nport I* that thin 1* to be In every
Provincial Capital a college of western
education. The Reformer*, before tho
outbreak, were advocating thi* vary
thin(. They wanted th* old heathen
uniplee converted into schools and colleges eitabliahed, in which Gbiua
conld be ao educated a* lo be able to
���land beside civilised nntiont. The
propossl startled and aroused conservative opposition tnd hence tbe fetrful
havoc of latt year. China hss been
tsnght by affliction. Now it seems tbs
schools are to be eatabliahed by im
piria! decree.
Who are to be the teachers in these
schools t China oannot for some yeara
furnish them herself. The missionaries will be aaked, indeed have already
been asked, to take charge oi China's
sdutation. But tht mittlonatiei can-
not turn aside from their own work.
What remains but that they ahould
aik the homo Church to und out more
mra? And they will. Probably never
before has inoh an opportunity and-responsibility oome to ihe Church. If
we can supply Christian teachers who
can take the control and give a Christian complexion to the education of
old China for soms years, who ean
estimate the results?
The missionaries wbo were driven
out of China have now nearly all returned, and have been kindly received
by the Chinese. The native Christiana
rallied about them as might be expected. Thess native Christiana have gone
through th* furnace, tnd by the discipline of affliction will be better and'
more consecrated men, and more efficient worker* amongst their own poople.
In that respect tha minion will .be
more prosperous because of what has
happened.
< From Central India word comes that
rains havs again tailed. Only sixteen
inches.of rain fell instead of ihe ninety
inobei uiual iu that province. Aa a
r, suit tbe crop haa not been sown, and
consequen-ly there will be no harvest
Maio . There is fear of both bread
and water famine. It may be appeala
will cjrae again tor help, and no doubt
Canadiani out of a plentiful harvest
will respond as gtneroutly as thty did
laet year.   .
Even so dreadful a calamity has
been over-ruled to the conversion ol
many souls Many thousanda of children gathered during Ihe lest famine
are under Christian instruction. Tbey
are alao taughi industrial arlt by
wbich they ctn tupport themselves.
We hav* In thi* offlc* at ihe presei.t
t-ime ipecinieus of beautiful ruge of The
oriental paltsrns wovsn by these child-no. They find a larg* market in
England for such work.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
We reproduce from the Colonist au
interview granted by Hon. W.C. Wells
on his return from his eastern trip.
In it is give.i a summary of what the
Chief Commissioner haa accomplished
tor the benelit ol our province. To
these who ere accustomed lo the bombastic utterances of the professional
politician, Mr. Wells' plain statement
of facts may be disappointing, but in
hi. own quiet way be announces lhe
results of a visit that will no doubt
mean a great deal to our provinoe.
According to s despatch from Vancouver, the Liberals purpoie holding a
convention in that city on the last
Thursday in January, three dolegatee
being allowed to each Dominion member. There are eix representativea of
thit province in the Dominion Hoaee,
ao the convention will be composed of
eighteen delegates. Victoria hat two
membirs and, of couse, will send eix
delegates���one-third of the whole convention. The whole vast territory of
Kootenay, Yale and Cariboo will only
bave three delegates, Of these Nelson
and Rossland will want one taeh and
Kainloopt and Revelstoke will surely
insist on lhe other. The rest ofthe
constituency will be unrepresented.
We refrain from further comment as we
feel convinced that there it a inieiake
aoinewhere. a mistake that will have
to rectified before ibe convention i.
helti.

welcomed home by his many frienda.
Mr. Wells waa interviews I

the raott important matters which he
had discussed with eastern rail
way men, capitalists and merchants
During hia atay in Ottawa ha had aev

inieres's to the welfare of the provii.e*,
and ha waa happy lo say that ha found
ihem rery well disposed iogive British
fsjli.n-.lila and btr requirements their
usual serious con.iderslioa. Sir Wil
f.i'l Laurier and bia collogues teem
fully elire lo the importance el promoting the development st British
Columbia, not only in the light of local
i'ei|,.ii'tiiieut��. but from tin broader
national point of viow which maktt it
absolutely ueeessary toihio-r open the
vest resources anst potautialiiiea of the
province. They were tpeeially Impelled wilh the importance nf ihe Coaat-
Kootsnay road, the Vancouver Island
railway, and tke northern. tonnectien
with the Canadian Northern trans-
continental railway. Thsy look upon
ths CoaitKoottnay railway as an
abtoluti neettiily to tht di.elopmeit
of the great Similkemeen and Keoitnty
diet nets, end it wijl be the duty st the
provincial Government to demonttrate
anil fur her the importance of thai
road, not only as giving more convenient and cheaper transportation faoili-1
liee to ths terminal cillee of Vancouver
snd Victoria, but that it Is the bait
postiblt meant by whleh to develop iht
jpanity-*)"**���
Hagariling ths oonairnctlon of th.
Hur, Mr*- Ottawa ministers ooinpli-
mentsd lis* sjsjf.vineisl Government on
thsir wist, jsstlluy of having a thorough
possession of rel'ablo data which will
enable iktm to tubmit prscisi tsrms
lor the building, snd puts Ihs queetion
of a fsasibis pail beyond tht realm of
donbt. A very high authority remarked to Mr. Weill on thtt point,
that before tke surrey wae made they
had been talking to air. bat now have
a substantial baiii for negotiation!,"
and these, Mr. Weill sass, will bs
pushtd with all tntrgv and despatch by
the Government.
The importance and fusibility of ths
British Colnmbia section ot the transcontinental railway wae the subject ol
ditouiiion btiw-itn Mr. Wells snd
many prominent railway men who
evinced a great interett in ths subject.
It loemi ot all ihe sehtiats talked ol, to
meet with the mott favor and approbation. Ths Govtrnmtit will Issl that
thsy havs aeeompllthed a men important talk when ther have completed
negoiiatioua for tbe conttruetion ot
thii ead of tht tins.
Mr, Wslls found lhat conaiderable
intereet wit taktn in tht legitlation of
last session bearing on the eneourage
ment of the pulp industry. There ia a
growing demaul for thia important
article of commerce which excels iht
expectations of the eatttrn manufacturer! and capitalleta. In aome cases
Ihe total output of pulp and paper it
oontracttd for fully a ytar in advance.
Thit Hate ot affaire can lead to but one
remit, and that ia thai Britiih Colum
hia must bt lookid lo la tht near future aa the mott favorable field for
operations in thit induitry. The
Northwett msy for a time be under
���oral disadvantage from fortign competition, but that will ba tompsntated
in otber respects. The Urge reserve of
capital wbioh ie now lying Idle In tkt
easl awaiting investment, mu.t ia it
aelf necessitate looking beyond the
eatttru province!, and it only required
the legislation of latt session to insure
lo British Columbia ths establishment
within her borders of this imi.ortaat
and growing induitry.
Aiksd ss to ths probability of the
Dominion Oovommont contributing to
lhe cost of the Fraser river bridge. Mr.
Wells said the matter had been repre
eented to the Ottawa cabinet, the importance of the undertaking had been
fully explained and tbey teemed im
pressed with the reasonable ��| rotations ol the province in regard to it.
Aa aoon as the tender! ate receive.) and
the Governmeut iatormed aa te lhe
exact cost of the work, il is iheir in
tentiou io make a claim upon tha Do
minion fur a contribution. The die-
tinetive feature of the New Westminster bridge ie that it will be international in importance as well ae meeting tke growing demands ot local
traffic.
While in the east. Mr. Welle had
many inquiriea regarding immigration
io ihe province. Manitoba and the
Territories are getting more immigrants
and a better clan than tvtr btfon, and
one of thete dayi Ihe tide will let in
towards Britiih Columbia. Hs was
pleaaed lo se. that 'during his absence
Mr. Gointll had completed arrangement for the colonisation of Malcolm
Island with Finns. There are two
other similar propoeitiona now before
the Government, which, it is hoped,
will be brought to aa tuecenfnl a ter
initiation within the next tew mouths.
The Government nre losing no opportunity of inducing immigration, but
they feel that certain requirement must
be considered and provided for before a
great ttretm of Immigration oan be
reasonably expected, There are three
diatintt features to be dealt with : Ths
arid Isnds of ths dry belt, whicli must
be irrigated; tbe Fraser river lands, at
Isresoiit embraced In the dyking sys*
torn; asd ths tlmisor areaa The importance of determining just what san
1st placed at the disposal of inimigranlt
oanntt bt onreetimatod, and to encourage immigration nnder improper
conditions might |.rove mors ditastrous
thin otherwlte. The Immigration
question inuet bs handled not only nd-
vittdly, but on wtll considered pltns,
that will contribute to idvantageoue
ttttlement. Ii eansosretly bs claimed
that,British Colambia it situated In
ihisresptet it favorably as portions
ol the Northwest Territories, requiring
lor that reason all the mote careful
consideration ot the Government.
Mr. Welle found, everywhere, a great
deal ol interest ei pressed in Britieh
Columbia. Inquiries aa to oar industrial, prospects, and expectations were
numerout, and all thoae who protetttd
to know anything about tha province
expressed the fullest confidence in ita
future. Wholesale men srs looking to
the weat for their business. They contrast ths many "hand to mouth"
orders which they receive Irom intern
euitomert with the generout onei nnt
from tho writ, tmalltst of which seldom runs below a carload. Ths wsst*
ern trade is the trade worth having
and they are all reaching out lor it.
Another fact noted waa that these
gentlemen tettilsd to the invariable
promptness with whioh .wetttrn men
met their engagement!.
Eaitern people are possessed of the
molt unswerving faith in our mines,
but they deplore the faet ihat the industry has bnn checked ky labor
troubles. They expressed gstilcation
at the fact tbat thete were rapidly
vanithing and hsptd tbat nothing
might intervene to revive the trouble.
Mr. Welle laid he had eojuyed the
trip at he had met many old frienda
tnd had teen much that was .interesting, but ths weather wat far from
pleasant, part of the time, and he wae
glad to get back to tht more oongenisl
sir of ths coast. He is well pleased
with the result ut his juerney from a
provincial poiat bf vlsw, as he oon-
sidere that he dtaooeeded in further in-
tereiting tome very prominent mon in
the country, snd hs feels tbat the result
will lw to Ihs benefit of the province.

But Saved Through a Letter
From an Old Acquaintance.
To the Editor nf the EliA :
Sir,-1 feel it a duty to let the public
know through your paper what a olon
oall I had aud bow I escaped. I was
engaged aa a brakeman on 'he C.P.R.,
and contracted rheumatism, which
soon became chronic. I became unfitted for work, aud finally was unable
to walk, in which condition I was
when a letter from a friend in Winnipeg told me of Dr. Clarke'a Wonderful
Little Red Pilla, and how they had
oured several of his acquaintances. I
resolved to try them and it was only
after taking six bottles lhat I began to
improve. I am now, I am pleaaed to
tay, at well as ever, and am back at
my old occupation.
I believe I would have died had It
not been for this marvellous medicine.

Duohese of Devonshire.
Georgians Cavendish, Duchess of
Devonshire, whose portrait by Gainsborough has been the lubject ot sncl,
deep admiration and such widespread,
discussion, was worthy of the popularity she enjoyed during hsr own time,
and ot the lame that now attaches to
her name. For years she .eigned queen
of English society, but she was more
than a lady of fashion. She is remembered ss the friend of Dr. Samuel Johnson, the literary dlctstorof the timet, of
Joshua Reynolds aud Gainsbrough,
two of England's greatest portrait
painters, and of Fox and Shtrldan,
the matchless Parliamentary oraton
of an age famllarwith the eloquence of
and Edmund Bnke. She wae tht eldest
daughter of John first Earl ot Spencer,
and was born in June, 1757, three yeara
before surrender of Canada to Great
Britain. In June 1774, jutt at the outbreak of the Amerioun revolution, tht
married the fifth Duke Devonshire,
who wit regtrded .at "fint match"
in England, and hia wife became the
reigning qneen of society.' She aet
the fashion in dreit, and introduced a
tim pit and graceful stile to supersede
the rldiculout hoop. But though
entering with great sett into the fash*
ionable aramtsntnli of tht tirata. sbs
pttttiiid intellectual and moral characteristic of a kind which entitles her
to be classed above ths ordinary women
of fashion. Great as were her personal
oharms, they were not the ohief tourot
of htr Influence over tne majority of
her admirers; "it lay In the amenity
and' gracti ol her deportment, in her
irrtsittible manner.,nod tht attraction
of her locisty." Walpolt ssld of htr:
"Shteftcet all without being a beauty;
but her youthful figure, flowing good
nature, ttnst snd lively rsodeily, and
modest familiarity make her a phenomenon.* She delighted in the society
ot persons of talent, and numbered
among her prriontl friendi Fei, Sheri
dan and Selwyn.
The Djiyeheti of Dtvonshin wss vtry
Strssgly opposed to tht polilittl party
In powir, and, notwithttanding tht
tndeavort of thi court party to deter
her by the most illiberal a'nd indecent
abuse, devoted her utmott tffom to
sscun Iht rtturn ot Fox at tht tnrnoui
Wtttmintter election of 1784. During
