Famous Lady    Traveller to Lecture
Here Under tho Auspices
of W. C. T. U.
The local branch of tho W.C.T.U.
is arranging for a courso of lectures
by Miss Ada L. Murcutt. Miss Mur-
cutt bears a great reputation as a
lecturer, and her recent work in Vic
tui'ia received the highest praise from
the' local proas.
Miss Murcutt, who is an Australian lady by birth, Is a fellow of
tbe Royal Scottish Geographical Society, and has lectured not only before tho Geographical societies of
London, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Glasgow, nnd Dundee, but has travelled
all ovor tho civilized world, and in
all theso journoys has met with groat
success. Shs addressed largo
diences In New Zealand, Japan and
Russia and tho wild lands adjacent
to this vast country. Sho is said
to bo tho only white woman who
visited the Russian convict settlement prison at Saghaslien Island,
The Dundoti Advertiser glvos tho
following pen picture of her:
"She ls indeed, a remarkable woman, having come through experiences quite uniquo In their way, and un
derirone hardships which very fow
women have evor had the temerity
to face. She has travelled four
times around the world, and has left
the beaten track and explored regions wboro no othor white woman
hns beon, facing Innumerable perils
and dangers. As a result of ovcr
ten years ol travel and observation
in almost evory country In tho world
Miss Murcutt has collected a fund
of Information and experience which
provokes the closest interest, nnd
awakens the public conscience to the
existing! evils of tho day. She has
style peculiarly her own. Possessed of a clonr, penetrating voice,
the large audionces which she addresses have no difficulty ln following her story, while her great fluency nnd descriptive powers at onco
captivate her hoorcrs, holding thom
spellbound from the time sho rises
to speak until sho resumes hor scat.
Ono nevor tires of listening to her,
which Is partly accounted for the
fact that sho has tho saving grace of
being able to see tho humorous slds
ol things."

Tbo Seniors are down for a return
fixture with tho Y. M. C. A. boys,
lt is ulso a mistake to underestimate an opponent. It is always safer
to givo them a little more credit
than they deserve. This is the policy tho home boys have adopted.
From the very beginning of tbe season the Y.M.C.A. have always been
going to do things. Defeats have never discouraged them and they have
always managed to create the impression that something would be
doing. It has never come oil solar,
and every care is being taken that it
'does not come off ou Saturday. Tho
home boys liuve never been seen to
such disadvantage this season as in
the game here with the Y. M. C. A.
boys. The Victorians got an impression of their play which must be
sharply corrected, und the team will
take the field determined to go from
start to finish. The team will be as
follows:
Goal—D. Morrison,
Backs—Morrison uud Hewlett.
Halves—Wynn, Clegg, McKinley.
Forwards — Grainger, Sanderson,

EFFORTS MADE TO CHIUSMAN-
121E CHINKS.
NEW YORK, Feb. 20,-At a meeting here tonight p»ans will be outlined and uu attempt made t arouse
public interest in the proposed Chinese Young Men's Christian association, which is expected to play 'an
important purt in the movement for
converting tho Celestials of the metropolis to Christianity. The Asiatic colony in Doyers, Mott and Pell
streets ls doily growing in population, owing to the Influx from ths
Pacific Coast, and the missionaries
are redoubling their efforts to leaven
the yellow mass with the religion of
the white devils.

It Is tho aim of the originaton of
the idea to provide a building, to

Struthers was now able   to   attend

and long low kicks, while on the left

was the lace. Thoro was moro fun
to the minute of thut game than in

moro comical than a circus

'spectators.
Altogether it was a fine trip, and
a 'Imtter bunch of boys to travel with
the manager has never known. *
Of course, it is impossible to travel without incident, grave or amusing, occurring. A supporter of thi
team will    not   forget
another    and the match
came
safe.
Just before thc conclusion of thc
first half Tom O'Connell got his hi)
hurt. Tho game was stopped . and
Tom left the field. He como back alter the interval, but was unable to
do very much. During this half
■the locals played practically only
four forwards, Arthur having gone
back to (V't'onneH's place. Still,
they moro than held the Kays, and
won out 5 goals to 2.
The only time tho Bays ever got
any hold of tho ball was about tho*i
middle of the second half. For quite
a spoil thoy got the boys fastened
up in their own half and forced soveral comers. But gradually, they
wero forced back, and time came
with the boys doing their utmost to
satisfy a leather-lunged supporters'
clamor for six goals.
Reviewing the game it must bo said
that the boys playod in fine form.
Not since the'opening game of tho |
season have the forwards put in such
forceful effective work, Joe was at
his best, and the Bays woro helpless
against their effective combination,
Jimmy ployed a great game, pnss-
ing most unselfishly to his colleagues
and again and again clearing the
way for a forward movement, He was
ably assisted by Jock and Arthur,
and the sume ploy next week will
settle Y. M. C. A. aspirations.
The half back line wus also good.

Tbo team aro vory fast in following up, kick well with either foot,
nnd most of tho forwards are dangerous shots. Tho backs and halves ure sure and steady, use their
bodies to advantage and in relieving
display great judgement' in placing
the pigskin, and as a result it is
usually deposited where ono of their
attacking division secures it.
All of tho players stood tho fast
pace that was set from the toot of
the whistle till the call ot timo, anil
at the expiration of the playing
time wero as fresh as when they
stepped on the field. The fine form
that this team haa shown throughout the season is due to the proficient coaching of Mr. Leonard Tall,
who has the boys in charge, and
this gentleman has been untiring in
his efforts to get tho team Into winning condition.
The Nanaimo    team    played good
football all through the two periods
and gave many instances of tho fact
that they are no mean exponents of
the game, but they wero up against
better team and seemed to     feel

Though tho dofence is desirous ni

an increase of 20 per cent, as compared with tho corresponding period
of a  year ago.

Question.
(London Times. )
The whole problem of Asiatic Immigration is so dllllcult, und of sucb
pressing importance, that it shouli
not be complicated by questions of
what virtually comes to be tho treat
moat of Individuals. But bosidjs
tho feeling of honor Involved ut
home, in India there is a very serious movement of public opinion to
be reckoned with. One of tho most
surprising features in the Blue-Book
on the subject is the curiously halting protest of the Indian government, and it is evident from news
wbich we have recently published
that' Mr. Moreley's more emphatic
language was much'more representa
tlve of opinion in the dependency.
Sevoral meetings of protest have
-..(ly been held in India, but that
held in Bombay last Wednesday iB
particular significance. It is not
often that Indians of ths Hindu,
Partee and Mahomedan communities
meet for a common object as they
did on this occasion, under tho auspices, too, of some of their most pro
minent leaders. The Agha Khan
who recently headed a most mport-
ant Mahomedan deputation to Lord
Minto and is the acknowledged loader of the Indian Musulmans, presided, while among the speakers was
Sir Pherozeshah Mehta, one of tho

All the seven thousand persons assembled condemned in no uncertain

DESCENDANTS OP THE  CRUSADERS.
As a recult of the recent Arnaud-
Courtler expedition into the South
ern Soudan the strange theory has
been launched in Paris that the Tua-
regs, the wild nomads of tho Saha
ra, are of Frenoh origin. The assumption is that they are the descendants of survivors uf the crusading army which King Louis IX.
landed at Tunnis in 1370.
The king himself died there, and
only a few strggglers of ths many
thousands who accompanied him ever made their way home. The oeneral statement of history has always
been that tbo rest died of pestilence
else wore slaughtered or enslaved
by the Mohammedans of tho coast.
Now it is suggested that a strong
band, well armed and mounted, may
have successfully resisted attack and
mado their way into the interior, incidentally'securing wives by attacks
on tho Nomad Arabs.
Many facts about the Tuaregs lend
a color of posslbllltv to this proposition. They clearly are not of
tbo same race as the peoples surrounding them. They themselves believe that they do not belong to Africa, They have a tradition of migrating thither somo centuries ngo,
but their story is that they are descended from the Turks, and roached
tho Sahara via Egypt. Their status as intruders is further illustrated iu the fact that they are irreconcilably at odds wllh all thoir neighbors. Whether among the Berbers
of the north or the blacks ot tho
south, they have no friends.
They aro t remarkably whito race
and those ot the north, who have intermarried little with Sudaneso women, are known as the "White Tuaregs," In face and stature they
suggest rather tho European thai
the Turk. Their strange habit nl
veiling their faces—the mon, for tbe
women go unveiled, though they art
Mohammedans—It explained by themselves at due to their dignity: lt Is
not worthy of a truo man to allow
himself to be looked at. But lt Is
goiierally believed that it is a survival of the need which strungers experienced to protect their tender skin
from the flying sand and dust. ol
the desert. Now lt Is suggested the
veil ls really a survival ol the visor
of the Crusader's helmet.
In oxploitlug this theory a Pans
newspaper published a portrait of a
Taureg chief who bears the very

Dr. Wm. Popper, in a most interesting paper presented at a recent
meeting of the Philadelphia County
Medical Society, discussed tbe causes
of death of eminent physicians. Ue
stated that Laennec fell a victim ,
a disease the nuture of which hu
had taken pains to describe. Lan-
cisl and Corvisart died of diseased
heart, and Boyle sank under the ravages of the disease of which he ha-1
been the most successful Illustrator.
Sir Benjamin Brorlie, tho great Burgeon, died or w*— of his right
shoulder Joint. Dupuytren, the moBt
famous Burgeon of tho lest century,
died of an empyema. -Refusing to
submit to an operation, ho said he
would rather end Hi life through
Cod's hand than that of a surgeon.
In more recent times Mllkullcz. who
wrote on cancer of the stomach, himself fell a victim to this disease
Fowler of Brooklyn, having written
ot appendicitis, died of this disease.
On the memorial tablet of Dr., J. W.
Lazear, who died of yellow fever, are
the words, "With more than tho devotion and courage ol a soldier, he
risked and lost his life to show how
tearful pestilence is communicated
and how its ravages may be prevented." Dr. Ouillotin, the inventor ol
the guillotin, had his own bead chop

physicians havc been great sufferer
from the gout, Sydenham said:

thero was absolutely no desire on the
part of tho province to involve the

It would ho shown that it wns advisable to prohibit the immigration

HLOODY BATTLE AT PERUVIAN
PORT.
ists were shot dead aud as many
mora wounded in a bloody buttle
with federal troops on the streets in
Iquique on Friday, December 20th
An incipeut rebellion among the Industrial classes in tho South Amur I-
in republic was thus suddenly ended through tho Arm action of President Pedro Montt.
Tho recent trouble ln Chili was
precipitated through intense dissatisfaction against the administration
of President Montt, generated
among tho mine -workers, who believed tbat in disputes between the
laborers and employers tho President
showed a' disposition to favor tho
employers. Several strikes on the
part of the minors ended dlsasterous
ly for the laborers, and the president was blamed for sympathizing
with the mine owners and lending
them his moral support.
The trouble came to a head flrst
In November, when there was a
sharp engagement between tho striking miners and the troops Bent by
President Montt to preserve order
Seven men wore killed and mnnv
wounded in that encounter. The
strikers at thnt time' showed such
strength as to make thom a menace
to thc safety of the government.
Fully 1)0,000 men had walked out at
Autofagnsta, Mejillcnes and at Cal-
leta Dura, and work in the mines
had boen completely tied up.
This lirst severe check of the unlawful methods of the strikers, although depressing did not have the
effect of thoroughly stamping out
their rebellion against law and order
nnd they set about organizing
more thorough and systematic opposition to the government. Accord
ing to the story told by Schwonger
thoy fomented a revolution throughout tho whole country and more especially in tlie coast towns, where
their influence was immense.
The strikers all armed, came into
violent conflict with the president's
forces at Iquiipio in tho beginning of
December, Tho result of another
bloody encounter, wus a loss to the
revolutionists uf 210 men killed and
0 wounded.
That tho rebellion was not stopped
by this Napoleonic action of President Montt is certain from tho • accounts of tlie Alexandria's olHccra
und others on tho steamer.
Toward the end of December 15,
000 armed strikers came down from
tho mines and camped outside Iquique threatening to burn the town If
their demands were not conceded.
President Montt on recoipt of this
news, issued orderd to the commanders of 'iho Chilean war ship
Ulnnoa Escalada and Mlnistro, Zen-
teno to proceed to Iquique and lan'l
murines, with machine guns, to corporate with the land forces in the
town,
The Hlanca Escalgda and Ministro
Zonteno arrived at Iquique on Friday, December 20th and at once
landed 500 marines and several machine guns. With tho regular land
forces under the direction of President Montt, thoy marched to meet
tho revolutionists, who by this timo
had made their way into the town.
Tho two forces met near tho outskirts of Iquique, and President
Montt sent a message to the reboi
commander, that lu order to avoid
bloodshed, he would glvo him
hour to disperse his men. ThiB offer
wns refused.
When the time was up the president gave them another hour to quit,
This they again refused to do, and
as a final act of consideration. President Montt allowed the revolutionists another quarter of an* hour in
which to lay down thoir arms. All
this time hurried preparations were
being made by the revolutionists tj
strengthen their position for resisting the forces of tbe Chilean government-
At thu expiration of the last quarter of an hour allowed by the president for tho revolutionists to surrender the government troops were ordered to flre. Instantly a tremend
ous fuislude began on both sides,but
the untrained forces of the rebels
wero no match for the government
troops with their machine guns. In
less than half an hour thoy wero
driven out of the town with a loss
of 500 killed and many wounded.
President Montt ordered the strikers hack to work, on pain of being
shot, and within uweek the mines
and all othor industries along tha
coast wore in full swing again.
When the Alexandria loft Iquiquu '
everything seemed perfectly tranquill!
and hor officers say that the strike
and trouble are over. President
Montt's firm action having thorough
ly disheartened the strikers, who
aro not talking revolution any more.
