The "Chronicle" is having all the
luck, nnd its olllce promises to be-
. come a regular bureau of complaints
It began with a fond mother und
,1ms now beon nicely rounded off with
u young Indy. How young the lady
was wo ure. not told, und the editor,
with nn nmu/.iiig neglect of details,
doos not tell us whbthor sho was
married or single, nor utior a -word
about her uppeurnnce.   She mny iuive
3011 bountiful, or she mny' have been
lain, witty or dull, gracoful or awkward—the 'Chronicle leaves its readers guessing. Thoro is not u hint
evon nhout tho color ot her hair;
not a lino about her eyes, not a
word about her complexion.
This is nil tho moro remarkable in
thut tho-young lady wus complaining of having licen forced off tho
sidewalk by somo ignorant streot
loafers. Surely the young lady must
havc reflected something of tho agitation sho must have felt nt such
oafish unguliant conduct in hor eyes
and in her bearing. Now without
roubling tho young lady at all tho
'Standard"  would  like to Join   its
ro'tost to thut of tho "Chronicle."
Quite a number of our young men
forget themsolves on the streets. It
is nonsense to tnlk of hayseeds, and
nn insult ns well to a class of mon
who aro in the town overy day. It
is our own young mon tlio' Sta'ndnrd
is addressing, and it must lie said
thnt It is a mighty surprising thing
to find friend Carley raising thnt old
bogey of city superiority merely to
register a protest ngainst n Imd nnd
thoughtless habit which our youth
hns fallen into.
The Standard wouldn't have touched upon the matter at all hnd it
iot been for a lusty young gentleman who cutlet! to protest against
friend Curley's gratuitous insults and
uncalled for aspersions. Tho oditor1
himself wus speedily convinced that
the Chronicle man didn't have a log
to stand on, nnd, to save his wool,
parley's; not mine), refused to
give his euller friend Curley's nd-
ilress. There is not enough of liny
about for a single seed to flnd lodgment iu the hair, nnd our caller wus
unkind onough to suggest thnt friend
turlcy hnd invented the lady merely
in ordor to make a pretext on
which to pin his insults.
Of course, it was the editor's duty
to maintain a strictly opon mind
and ho always does his duty. But
no sooner hnd ho got rid of his caller than a second popped in. "Have
.vou scon tho Chronicle?" he liegnn
and—but no, this is for family por-
usnl, and really such remarkable language had never before been used in
a nowspnpor office. "Yes, we've rend
it," wo replied. "What's the matter? And how did you see It? Wo
thought you took the Standard, and
didn't you toll us "    Novor mind
thnt. Thnt, paragraph about tho hay
seeds is n lick at Old Country peoplo, nnd lot inc   toll    ybu "   but
no we cannot give nil that wns said.
The burden of it wjis that Old Coun
try pooplo had seen as many sido-
vnlks ns friend Carlo}' and know ns
much about cities as ho will over
know. And really we must risk the
Chronicle to be moro careful! Wo nro
rural, distinctly rural, ourselves,
and inclined to bo touchy on tho
point ton. More thnn thnt, and
worse than that, the Chronicle office
is appropriating all thc young ladies, Carley is surely laying up lots
'f trouble for himself.
It is a long timo since tlio town
wns visited by such u gale us blew
011 Thursday night. Tho wind seemed to roach it's highest volocity
about 12 o'clock nt midnight, ufter
■which its violence gradually abated.
At the time of writing the Standard
man hus heard oG no casualties except a few pots und tins uud puns
which hnd not been lashed tight on
the buck verandah, Two or three
dogs In tho neighborhood of Third
Avenue, nlso wore very plainly disgusted with their quarters und howled oven above the roaring of tho
wind to bo reieused. Some of tho
houses also were guilty of very improper rocking and shaking but in
this latter respect their shaking wns
nothing to that of some of the inmates. Howevor, it was quite a
relief ut duybreuk to rise-und flnd
the town whoro it wns tho night before nnd a matter for profound
thankfulness thnt nono of tho boys
wore on the transfer. Mad us things
over nro there is always room to be
thankful they wore not worse.  '
Don't forgot the football game tomorrow aftornoon. Two strong
teams hnve been picked and a good
game should bo seen. The committee has it In hands to see that two
full teams are on thc fluid nnd a
start will bo made promptly at thc
advertised time. Tho admission ns
stated Inst week will bo 25 cents,
and ns the game bus been got up
for tho benefit of two injured plnyors, this small sum will not be begrudged. It Is to lie hoped that the
weather will bo fine and there will
no doubt be a good turn out.

The German Emperor
MEW YOHK, Nov. 21.—What purports to lie nn absolutely ac- •
curate and authentic synopsis of the interview obtained from Em- *
peror William of Germany by Ur. Win. Jtayurd Hale, and subte- *
(|uontly withdrawn just us it was about to appear in the Century *
magazine, is printed in tlie World today. The Work! declares that *
that the article, as originally written was submitted to Dr. Halo •
and that it appears us changed by Ur. Hale. Tho, interview is said *
to have taken placo on the Imperial yacht liohenzollern. ofl Bergen, *
Norway, while llr. Hale was the Emperor's guest. The World •
summarizes tho main points of tho Emperor's Interview as follows:   *
Though King Edward of Great  Britain    had    boon humiliating *
him for more than two yoars and  that he was exasperated,     that *
Germany was thc paramount power in all Dm'ope, uud that    Eng- *
lund was trying to neutralize that power, though he hold Franco in *
tho hollow of his hand, and that   Ilussia was of no account since *
thc disastrous wnr she had waged  with .fapun. •
Tlmt is the pan-European war, which had been so much talked *
about, wus Inevitable, the sooner  it came tho better it would    lie *
for hlm becauso he was ready and was tired of suspense. *
That Great Britain had been a   decadent nation ever since     her *
victory over tho Transvaal and the Orange Freo State, because it *
was nn unrighteous; ungodly cause, and Divine judgment wus   oven- *
tunlly bound to overtake the poworful  which waged such a   war. *
That the Anglo-Japanese alliance was iniquitous, working again- •
st all the white races, England proving absolutely faithless     as     a *
Christian nation.     That Japan was honeycombing India with sodi- *
tion and flooding it with spies, while professing openly to bo Eng- *
land's friend and ally. *
That the only way to oounteruct this allianco was for Germany •
antl America to net together nt an early date, or America     would *
have to fight tho -lapam'se in ten   months.    That in the event of a *
groat war England would lose many of her large colonies, especially *
those in the   Pacific    ocean,     and that    all   taken     for Germany *
would  be Egypt,  though ho would 1 derate tho holyland from     the *
yoke of the infidel, presumably meaning tho Sultan. *
That the perfecting of Zeppelin's dirigiblo balloon would give •
Germany a powerful advantage in war, and she was ready to make *
use of It to the fullest extent. *

Standard  Correspondent at tho Gap
Tolls How tho Aocident
The Standard special correspondent at Cowichan (Jap sends the fol-
luwiug account ol' the sinking of the
tug Owen. Tlie Owen wus on her
way from Ladysmith to Vancouver
with a scow load of coal and something went wrong about one mile
outside of the hell Buoy, The tug
must ha\e been holed by a derelict.
log, At any rate it is hardly likely that, as was reported, she had
struck a reef. The Owen was a
wooden tug, and it is conceivable
that a large log would easily punch
a hole in her bows. This apparently is what happened.
Writing at noon on the day on
which thc accident occurred, the
Standard  special  correspondent says:
It seems thc Owen had giot n holo
punched in her hows, and sho began
to fill with water. Tho captain immediately ordered the scow to be
cut adrift, and turned the tug for
the beach at the lijrht house. It was
a perilous passage, and was faced
with true British pluck. The captain stuck to the wheel house until
ho got into shallow water. Down
below the entrinoer and his assistant
stood by engine and boiler until the
water drowned out the fires.
Meantime the mate and his deck
hand, with the cook, had got the
ship's boat cleared and out, so that
they could nil leave the sinking steamer at a  moment's notice.
At this stage the PS. Burrard
passed about a mile away, but e\i-
deijitlj" did not hoar the distress wliis
ties from the Owen, ns she kept on
her courso. The lighthouse keeper
hailed the passing Eagle, and the
latter got to thc scene just as the
doomed Owen heeled over and sank
In about twenty feet of water.
The captain and his crew had put
i|i a struggle to got the Owen to
the bench. Even after the engines
had stopped and the decks wcre flush
with the water, ihey hooked on with
their boat and labored at the oars,
tn their efforts to save the boat
Ihey lost aW their own effects, and
were left with nothing but what thoy
stood up in. H is pleasant to be
able to st. *te that in a large nie-ns-
uro their efforts were rewarded. The
boat is lying just a few yards from
the residence of F. Allison, the lierht-
houso keeper, and it will be an easy
matter to raise her. Sho is left
partly dry at low tide, and the hole
can be patched up, tho water pump-
odout, and she will float acorn nt
high tide. It was fortunate thot
the accident occurred so near to the
bench, as otherwise the tug would inevitably have been Inst.

Since the above wns writton the
Owen has been refloated nnd is now
in Turpel's docks for repairs at Victoria. Tho cause of the accident
was ono of the flukes of tho tug's

NEW VORK, Nov. 18.-A special
cable to tho Times from London says
that reports arc curront in London
that the suppressed interview with

Marion. She was bought at Ketchikan by Mr. Greer last summer,
and brought to Victoria and regliter
ed at this port. Owing to the ruling of tho Dominion government that
no vessel be placed on the register
with a name held by a vessel already rogisterd in Canadian shipping
it was necessary to change the name
of the tug and sho was christened
the Owen.
The Owen is a wooden steam tug,
S6.5 feet long and 17.8 feet lisom,
formerly owned in Seattle. Shs was
used in the general towage business

certainly cannot  be truly characterized as one of loyalty to British institutions."
The Ilrst thing to be said concerning this is that If this is 'the kind of
twaddle that takes back east the different results of the election there
und here need no further explanation. It has never been admitted
that the Japanese iuimiigrution policy had been dictated In the interests of the British Empire. It is
untrue to say that it was followed
either at tho express desire or under
the direction of the Imperial authorities, Exactly tho reverse of this
has been stated on the floor of the
British House of Commons, nnd the
Hon. .Walter Scott should roally have)
better manners than to make of
Winston Churchill a liar, and bettor

Thc action of the people of British

There is one other point. Liberal
newspnpers ln the provinco generally
hnvo made a point of splashing
these news items. It would be curious and more thnn interesting to
know why. The attitude taken up
liy some of the nowspnpers implies
hnt the electorate had no right to

fuct that there is manhood suffrage

defeat of Templeman that nothing,
was too se\oro or too vitriolic to
express its boiling wrath and deep
disgust of tho voters nnd of the city.
Tho attitude of mind is common enough and nil too human; hut botter
things ure expected of the editor of
c big city daily. Tho Times playod the game, a spirited game, none
too clean nor too scrupulous, nnd
should hnvo accol tod tlie rosult with
at least a good face ,even if at
heart there wero the iiangs of humiliation and the angry passions of
disappointment. Tho mistake thnt
it mad© hns boen re[ieated by tho
premier of Saskatchewan, thc Hon.
Walter Scott.
We wcro told day after day     that
our premier of ministers were spending tho money of the province fighting Dominion elections.     They were
neglecting thc     work thov were paid
to do' in ordor to tnko part in     an
election, which did not concern them.
Those and a   whole lot of the same
kind of things wo wioro told day often;

of them,     of course.     Hnd Richard
■McBride and     his ministry heen     of
the other     political color the Times
would simply have hounded thom'in

COLOGNE, Nov. 18,-The Kol-

demand for the moment and it removes great apprehension. Whether
the results now achieved should bo

matter which can be left for later
calm consideration. What the I
Chancellor was unable to say in tlio
Reichstag, pertly owing to the fact
that he was not in close touch with

Prof. Starr, of the University of Chicago, in a lecture to
his class on prehistoric archaeology.
Prof. Starr declares he has found
geometrically perfect mounds or enclosures closely resembling the modern basoball diamond in the southern
parts of Ohio and Indiana. These
are generally believed to havo been
for purposes of protection, but Prof.
Starr says:
"They are nothing more nor less
than tho old ball Holds of tho mound

theso old pooplo resembles our modern game closely. A ball mado of
wood or stone and Inclosed in skins

was an attack upon the cabin of
John Hayes and his family, which
resulted in the death of Hayes and
liis daughter. Hayes had Jumped n
claim which Walter Long had taken
up, and the settlers decided to rid
the country ol claim jumpers. They
joined Long in warning Hayes to
leave the country, and when he did
not go they went to the cabin at
night, shot through it, and attempted to set lire to it.
ln all sixteen persons were arrested for the crime. The Ilrst trial
wos that of Walter Long. It was
long and expensive and resulted in
his conviction to 35 years in prison.
Then followed the trial of hie brother Milo, who was sentenced to 13 J
years in prison. Two oi the men
turned statos evidence and they got
oil with a  jail sentence.

PEKIN, Nov.     19.—Prince   Ching,
president     of the Board of Foreign
Affairs, has forwarded direct to all
powers friendly to Cbiuu a  personal
letter in the name of Fu Yi, tho infant emperor of China, sotting forth
the crisis through which the throne
hus passod during tlie last week.
These communications make a pica
for the now rulers of China who aro
unaccustomed    to Chinese procedure,
and     emphasize the odiciency     with
which    the events of the past week
have been conducted.
Several of    tho   foreign legations
here   have    expressed thoir surprise
aud gratification at the manner     in
which the    government is managing
the situation,     lt had been expected
up to    the present   time that    the
death ol tho Dowager Empress would
precipitate trouble, but the way   in
which tho new government bas assumed its responsibility has created
conlidence among tho diplomats aud

Shanghai, Nov. 19.—The recent events at Pekin have been fully reported here and it is felt in Shanghai
that the future ot the Empire is
safe, providing* that the regent,
Prince Chun, retains the services and
the support of Yuan Shi Kal and
Chang Chi Tung,     the two members
of the Grund Council, who are    tlio     	
strongest of the presont day states- .. — ,,
men   of    China.    There is no fear    EXCelleilt   BO&FCllllg
here that the revolutionary societies (
will make trouble, and no troops
havo been sent from Shanghai or its
vicinity to Pekin. The Prince -Regent is regarded here as a good
man, but inexperienced in affairs of
the government and is weak, The
fact that ho is In dally consultation
with Chang Chi Tung is regarded as
good indication.
The valedictory of the late emperor issued in the form of an Imperial
decree at Pekin extols Ching's virtues and accords him praise for the
reform he introduced in the matter
of schools and industries, railroad
construction, mining development,
but particularly the promise to put
the empire on a basis of constitutional government within nine years.
This decree is considered as preserving the policy of the new government.
