There is no fault to bo found with

WANT A CANADIAN INSTRUCTOR
AT ST. HELENA.
FREE TEXT BOOKS AT SCHOOLS
Victoria, B.C., April 28.—All arrangements have boen made by the
provincial government for the distribution of free books among the pupils of the different public schools,
of British Columbia. Hon. Dr. Young
minister of oducation, stated yesterday that orders had been placed with
Gage & Co., Toronto, and Morang
& Co., of tho snmo city, for the
standurd readers and arithmetics no-
cesSury. lt was the intention to
supply all material used in tho lower grades iu reading, arithmetic and
writing.
It was pointed out by tha minister that in the introduction of the1
now system there was ', a considerable
amount of detail work to bo done.
However, everything, he thought_had
beon attended, to. Forms hud been
issued to the' school superintendents
iu tho dim-rent cities and to thoso
a churge of educational institutions
o]sqwhero, asking for . Lnionmit ion
which they would be required to supply. This .related, principally, to tho
number of pupils in tho vnriqus localities, something the authorities
would require for the guidance of
thoso responsible for the distribution
Asked whether it .was the government's intention to re-imburse those
stationery establishments which had
kopt books that would bo supplied
free in stock, the minister replied
the negntivo. He explained that
this could scarcely be demanded as
tbo merchants had had upwards of
nine months notice. From what ho
could gather it wus not their custom 'to keop a heavy lino on hand,
buying from torni to term. Undor
such Circumstances 'they should bo
frco of those books, or nearly so, as
tho pronouncement of tho government's policy in this regard had been
made public in time to prevent thom
making tho mistake of laying in a
stock for the needs oi students for
tho forthcoming year.
Tho free supplies will bo distributed. Hon. Dr. Young states, at the
beginning of tbo term following the
ponding, summer holidays.

THE DISUSE OF ALCOHOL IN
THE TREATMENT OF
DISEASE.
Presiding over the thirty-firth annual meeting, of the London Temperance Hoapitai held recently in Great
Britain, Lord Alverstons, the Lord
Chief Justice, commented on the
notable progress of the Institution
ha* made la the treatment of diseases without the ordinary use ol
alcohol, and expressed satisfaction
ln the lact tbat alcohol waa being
more and more dispensed with aa a
medical agent in the general practise
of physicians.
The yearly records of the Temperance hoapitai, Lord Alverstono stated, continued to prevent undoubtabl*
evidence in favor of the disuse of alcohol a* a drug. The acope of th*
hospital waa yearly enlarging and
tbe progress made during the past
year had been especially noteworthy.
A splendid hall for out-patient* had
been oponed by the Duchess of Ar-
gyle, who hnd since become patron-
of the Institution; the buildings
had been renovated nnd furnished,
with every modern Improvement.
With the incrensod accommodation a
larger staff became necessary and an
especially ablo staff or physicians was
wns now In ohnrgo. The striking
statemont In the report which showed that during thirty-lour years the
inpatients hnd numbered 27,226,
nnd it hnd only been consldorcd need
fill to make trial of alcohol In 80
cases would not be without due
weight in medical circles.
From tills It wns clear that whatever thooietical valuo somo might
attach to alcohol as a drug, it
could bo almost entirely and safely
dispensed with, whilo tbo patlonts
themselves enjoyed immunity from
tihoso moral hazards which many ot
Ihem would bo exposal to by Imbibing alcohol In quantities howover
small.
At tho conclusion of tho meeting a
resolution of congratulation uiwn
tho excellent work accomplished at
lie hospital was recorded. The resolution also stated that tho meeting
rejoiced in tho knowledge that a
large reduction In the use of alcohol was commending itself to the
judgement and onterlng into the
practise of tho medical profession.

FUNERAL OF LATE SHI HENRY
CAMPBELL-RANNERMAN.
LONDON, Aprll 27- The funeral
services of the Church of England
were solemnized in Westminster Abbey at noon today over the body of
Sir Henry Campbell-Bonnerman, th*
late prime minister of Great Britain
who died April 22, In the presence of
a large gathering representing the
political life of England.
After the service* a abort prooes-
aion moved from the Abbey to Eus-
ton station, where a special train
took the coffin to Scotland. It waa
a typical gloomy London day and
a dismal rain was falling when the
simple cortege made its way along
the streets.       The Abbey and
with a ru»h the imprisoned waters
precipitated tbe whole frozen mass
right upon the village.
It came backed by a force like a
great tidal wave, breaking down all
barrier* and crushing some fourteen
pr fifteen houses, -The water stopped for a moment, then passed _.
down the stream again, flowing over
the site of the ten acres that had
slid into a new position.
/There we* no time for warning, no
possibility for escape, Occupants of
houses numbering over thirty, probably, wen Instantly killed or crushed anil smothered Into unconsciousness by the hundreds of tons of ice
end water and their remains will
be found among the wreckage of the
home*.
Work of rescue is by no means an
easy One, and In some instances dynamite may have to bs used to clear
awat huge blocks of ice and clear up
the debris.
As in all small villages, ths people
were almost as one .<,mily. Somo
connected by " j of blood, some by
marriage, and all by community of
interests, similarity of labor and
that intimacy and close association
which isolation gives.
To survivors who were not In the
path of the terrible ico jam and
flood, disaster comes with the  same
semi-final    for the
emblematic    of
pionship bf the Dominion.
The teams scored one goal each,
and will play'off on Tuesday next.
The match was witnessed by the
largest crowd that ever attendee »
football game in British Columbia.
From tho reports of the throo local
mon who witnessed the game, tha
teems appear to havo boen pretty
evenly matched. The Caledonians
play a pretty passing gamo and are
particularly good with thoir heads.
But they aro good collectively rather than Individually, und the ono noticeable thing in tho whole game was
that neither team can stay the 90
minutes. Such a- rush as Nanaimo
developed against Ludysmith in the
lust ten minutos of tho opening
game would havo carried cither the
Caledonians or tho Thistles off tho
field. While neither club is to bo
under-rated, there is ut least reason
to hope tbat tho Shiold may como
here.

NEW YOBK, April 25,-Robt. T.
Inglish, who had flve stitches taken
lu his heart, died yesterday at Yon-
kers, N.Y., after a battle against
death lasting It) days and 7 hours.
For the last two daya he haa been
unconscious. When English was removed to toe hospital be weighed almost 160 pounds. When the body
was weighed thiB morning it had
wasted away, to 60 pounds, The
stitches in the heart had not healed
and setlcimia had set in.
An autopsy showed that the statements of Doctors Dully and McCor-
miok, who performed the operation
of sewing up English's heart were
correct in every detail. Tbe wound
in the heart could plainly b* seen
relieving all doubt as to the reason
for the operation, Tho organs were
all affected by the septic conditions
which followed the operation. The
knife wound severed the cartilage of
the fourth rib and waa within
sixteenth of an Inch of the Inner
chamber of the heart. The wound
bad closed after tbe operation.
It was remarked by the phy.iclans
at the autopay that lt was remark'
able that ho should have lived ao
long. Only live or six similar cases
are on record'and the length of time
the patients lived was from ten to
eighteen hours.
English was vice-president of the
Mercury Athletic Club of Yonkers,
and rejoiced when he heard that Mor-
rlssey had won the Marathon race
at Boston. He sat up ln bed on
Monday and It is said that the sudden jar caused the relapse.
