"  Mr.    Qrahaiu was with the    Free
I'resa for one year and his versatile,
trenchant style of writing is well remembered by subscribers of this paper at   that time    of his connection
with tbe Free Press,        	
Tne Victoria Times in an apprecia
tion of him, says:
The late AU'. Uraham was a man
of wonderful energy and vitality, and
and{ up to the last entertained strong
hopes of returning to his duties in
London, where he was a valuable
member of the stall of the Daily-
Mail. Ha went to the old land two
or three years ago with the intention of taking the editorship oi s
weekly in the metropolis, but he gravitated unerringly to that department of journalism where his peculiar talents had the widest sway —
special' writing on the daily press.
He came under notice of the Mail
people and was placed on assign*
ment on the big Harmsworth Daily.
Sir Alfred Harmsworth was immediately attracted by his style, and
personally selected him lor a number of special assignments in which
he was particularly interested. The
wreck of the British warship on
Lundy island In the English channel,
about two years ago, called up his
spirit of enterprise, and he crossed
the Channel with an ugly sea running, in a lishing smack on which
the other journalists detailed for the
wreck refused to embark.
When Sir Alfred Harmsworth start
flguro in either team is a standing
puzzlo. Lorimer does not deserve
his placo against cither of the local
McKinley and Farmer, of Nanaimo,

Guelph, Fab. 1.—Rev. Robt. Torrance, D.D., on. of the foremost
Presbyterian minister, of Canada,
died suddenly at his home here yesterday aged 86 yttars.
i         ..  *
TOKTO, Feb. 1.—At a sectional
committee meeting of representative,
today. Baron Chlnda, vice fortlgn
minister. In reply to. a question on
the foreign emigration policy of the
government, pointed out that South
America was a favorable ground for
Japanese emigrants. A legation will
p. established in Chill to promote
better relations in both countries in
tha matter of trade, and emigration.
Ths government had been making
careful investigations which show
that Chili and ths Argentine Republic are favorable to emigration, and
wherever .aid emigrants are welcomed, the government will not prevent
going there.
It Is believed it will not be
sary to conclude any special treaty
for emigration, an   that existing stipulations   an    sufficient to protect,
Japanese subjects.
To another question as to whether
than 500 delegates and many more
visitors attended the first Inter-denominational missionary conference, ever held on this coast at tho Calvary
Presbyterian Church yesterday. Bishop John Waldon, of New York, secretary of the Board of Bishops of tho
Methodist t'liuroli, was the principal
speaker yesterday.
"That the condition of tho city is
bettor for tho making of Christian
than rural life," was tho startling
statement mado by tho bishop. "I
trust the interests of this country to
the peoplo of tho cities sooner than
to any othor section of our country's
population," ho said. The bishop
paid a high tribute to tho Roman
Catholic Church. "Aside from any
consideration of tho religious value
of the Roman Church," he said, "its
priests aro a mighty police power
for the preservation of order and decency among the alien population in
its cities.
      It was vory like the song  of
a bird—a caged bird, that, dreaming
of sky and stream and forest, slag,
in his sleep with head tucked1 beneath
a  wing, thus muffling the sound.
Like a flash the truth came to me,
I was being serenaded by that rarely    heard   musician,    the "singing
mouse!"    -Long ago I  bad read   of
aim, but had never before hoped  to
be honored by a serenade from   the
shyest of singers; be surs that I lay
I found his song Just what    it bad
perfectly quiet and listened intently,
been    described a. being, very much
like the canary's, only more soft and
sweet, altogether unmarred by harsh
shrill notes.    Ths writer of the    interesting   account of    the    singing
mouse, claimed that the creature  is
no strangs species, but only the common house mouse that has either inherited the gift   of   song or Kerned
tbe art    from older members of bis
race.     It is supposed that originally the   accomplishment was learned -
from canaries, and this seems    probable, as singing mice ore more  often found in bouses where ther. ore
canaries.    That they do learn    the
song from each other, and also that
it is   hereditary, is    proved by the
fact that if one is heard in a house
others are likely to moke themselves
known from time to time, even unto
many generations.
As for my own pet, he came every
night for several weeks, invariably;
between one and two o'clock. Always he faltered a little at first, '
but afterwards, becoming more surs
of himself, would let his voice out
fully, singing with ths pure abandon
of enjoyment.
The first few nights I wss afraid
to arouse my mother, who slept in
the same room but ln another bed,
lest the little fellow should cease If I
should speak. But after the first
two or three solos I ventured to call
her, and he was not startled In the
least, but sang on without pause as
If his ears were closed to all save
his own musical notes. After that,
at her request, I would always call
mother when the entertainment began, and never onco* did the mouse
become   silent
at the sound of my
VANCOUVER, Jan. 81- J, G.
Hurd, general manager of the Crow.
Nest Pass Cool Co., said today that
he expected the strike at Coal Creek
would soon be settled. The men
claim that the management has altered conditions of timbering lu such
- way that it means a reduction in
wages, and they demand an investigation.
The Company declined to allow th
old method of timbering to continue
and refused permission for the m.-n
to go to work unless tbey timbered
under the new arrangement, which]
they refused to do.
Other minor grievances were settled at last night's conference with
the management and the question of
timbering    will be discussed at    a
Joint meeting bo the operators   and
employees on Feb. 10.
It is not believed tbe strike    will
spread to the other properties of the
same company.
In the   Dominion    house Tuesday,
Messrs. Ralph Smith, Duncan Ross,
R. G. Macphoison, GalMhor and Kennedy all mado speeches In support of
giving a trial to the    Lemieux  arrangements.      If it were a  fgllure,
then the treaty could be ujrjgatod.
MacPhcrson said the government did
hat    British Columbia wonted  in
passing the order ln council to shut
out tho Japanese from Honolulu and
the Hindoos.    It was their duty  to
support ths    administration ln this
work.    The vote of 55 for the government was the largest this session.
The vote stood    45 for amendment,
100    against.      Sir Wilfrid Laurier
spoks of    the   Jnpan.-so fleet going
out alongside   tho British ships   to
meet a common enemy and  perhaps
son the Japanese    fleet anchored   In
Vancouver harbor to protect Canada
-ind British interests.   All' independents and labor voted with the  government.

VANCOUVER, Feb, 8.—J. H. Hawthornthwaite, Socialist member of the legislature, who unsuccessfully introduced a motion to
impeach Lt.-Gov. Dunsmuir in respect to his attitude with regard to
Oriental immigration, ran out of oxpletives at a mass meeting held
ln the city hall last evening.
Hawthornthwaite declared Dunsmuir was an inhuman monster, a
human hyenna and brute, and added that as the legislature refused
to allow his impeachment, he intended to perform that operation
on the presont occasion. Hawtbornthwaito advocated a three-
days' strike In all the Industrial Institutions in tho country as a
protest, it his proposed bill prohibiting the employment of Orientals in British Columbia be not accepted by the legislature.
Referring to the impeachment resolution, Mr. Hawthornthwaite
"Heaven knows that Dunsmuir has been guilty of enough crimes. I had tho right to hold thc scalawag before the bar of tho
house. You should have seen your governor stuttering and stammering through the speech from the throne, his knees knocking together. He thought he had a bomb, but he was not sure whether
it would go off. Then I made a motion for impeachment. There wns
consternation all round, but I lost no opportunity of telling those
Victoria parasites and codfish aristocracy what I   thought.
"If his honor had any conception of honor, any sense of decency or manhood, aftor he knows what the people of the province
think of him, ho would domand investigation and have Judgement
pronounced. He has broken e-ery labor law ol the province working his mines. The Workmen's Compensation Act is a dead letter
In Ladysmith since any man claiming benefits is sure to be out of
employment should he recover. I know I am committing lese majesty and am In danger of being put in your lock-up. But they
won't let mo talk In Victoria where I would like to tell the honorable scalawag what I   think ot him."

VANCOUVER, Feb. 3.- Ulchard
Davis, a farmer of Chllliwack, will
probably die us tho result of an in-
i Jury received last night from a rifle
.fired by a Chinaman, On l.ce.
j Davis, accompanied by a friend
named Richard Hall -were going
home late In tho evening, when the
two men heard a rifle shot behind
them.     This was followed by    an-
t-lub. A hard ninn to pass, lie is
quick in recovery, never loses his
head., and always knows where to
pass the bnll. Centre and wings lie
fed judiciously und Impartially on
Saturday, and tlie difference in the
p.uy of thut day and a week ago,
was largely due to his efforts.
Graham nlsu is getting into form.
He shows improvement ever- game,
and he had a day out on Saturday.
Me is easily tlie best inside left nn
tho Island, nnd is besides, a tiro-
less worker. Ubiquitous he was on
Saturday, nnd the despair of the visiting right half. As a rule lie is
not the kind of player that catches
lie is a muster of deft
touches mid deceptive passes, a kind
of play that is never showy. On
Saturday, however, ho hud as much
of the piny as nny two mon on tho
field, and was frequently cheered for
his work.
Grainger also was in fine trim and
his ••!- - wns always crisp and effective. He centred with absolute precision, not ono of over a score of
shots fulling anywhere but in front
of ironl. Ho was well looked after
by Strang who fed him unselfishly.
Sandy is nover above tak ng a bang
himself, and the way he turned the
ball into tho net on Saturday, surprised his opponents. Apart from
this shot, however, his marknianship
was away lieluw [mr, and it will o
a lung timo before Sandy sends as
many begging again. Arthur playod
a hard hustling game, und had ho
been us dangerous In front of goal
as he was clover in the open, he
would pretty near havo established
an island scoring record. Joo, too,
was there with the goods, worked
hard and centred finely; but hie
shooting also wus sadly at fault, i-r
ho should at least have bagged a
brace of goals. Of the halves, McKinley played his usuul effective,
hustling gamo and Simpson played
steadily and reliably right through,
lioth O'Connell nnd Hewlett came
through with flying colors; but they
would do bettor if they had a bettor working understanding with their
hulves and with themselves. 'Don
was groat in goal. He never made
the appearance of a mistake and
once stopped a shoo that seemed a
certnin scorer. Indeed, if Don would
only clear to the wings instead of
to tho centre when pressed it would
he hard to find a better custodian
in locnl footbnll.
lluforc the big game commenced tho
local and Kanalmo Juniors met
their second league fixture uf the season, and once more the home boys
hud to admit dofeut, und to say
farewell to their hopes uf League
honors. Three games in succession
they have playod and lost, and yet,
on two occasion, they wore entitled
to a draw, and ou Suturduy fully deserved to win. They playod all over

Premier McBride denied there was
auy agreement. He was willing to
allow the adjournment however.
ln moving the second reading     of
the bill to amend the Coal Tax Act,
lion. P. Q. Tutlow pointed out that
it was not     unreasonable to     take
this step.     He said the Crows' Nest
Pass Coal Company had last    year
paid to the government $55,000 milder the new act the company would
pay about §00,000 on tho same production.     The report of the Crows'
Nest Coal Company for 1006 showed
that in     the seven    years preceding
their net earnings were $2,107,000.
in the preceding year $350,000   bad
'been paid in dividends, being 10 per.
eent of the capital stock.     Ho pointed out that the company had     been
ablo to raise its capital from $3,500-
1000 to $0,500,000 by taking money
'from r«st and putting it into thc undertakings.        It would not be     a
hardship he thought, to ask such   a
[company for an additional sum     in
the way of taxation,
On Vancouver Island thero     wero
|two companies working.     The production last year was 1,195,000'tons
of the above 130,000 wero used     in
[operating, of the production 581,000
[tons were sold in Canada and 448,-
'000 tons _ elsewhere.       This meant,
[that practically half  tho production
was sold locally and half went over
to tho  United States.     Taking   tho
sum of     $4.50 as tho average price,
tho companies got n   little over $9,-
1000.000 as tlie value of the output.
Tho tux collected amounted to hardly two    per   cent, on    the amount,
'coal was therefore practically on tho
I same basis as the precious minerals
'which paid two    per cent less     the
cost    of treatment,     The price     of

about $7,50 a   ton of 2,000 pounds,
whereas the ton sold at the pithead

CHICAGO, III., Fob. a.—A. particularly active campaign is to be   car-
riod on this your by the Prohibition
party,    according    to   an announce-
[meat of plans made by1 the party of-
| tibials.       It is intended  to raise   a
fund of at least $100,000   for    the
fight,  on which nearly $20,000   has
already been subscribed.
1   Speakers will be sent into    every
state of the  Union to make   formal
| addresses and stump speeches on the
cause of total prohibition,-   Tho pro
gramme    will be carried "into    the
[enemy's country" in every locality.
'   A keen campaign is to be inaugurated in tho South,    Headquarters al-
I ready havo been established at Dallas, Texas, and preparations are   being made by thc local committee   to
force thc battle in ull Southern territory,   ln Texas a fight is also   to
be made to submit to the voters   in,
1009   a    constitutional    amendment
J prohibiting tho sale of liquor in   the
I State.    It Is feu red that a prohibition statute might be declared    unconstitutional under the present con-
'siiiution, so thc fight will bo made
for an amendment to the document.
