•Mr. K. S. Cunningham of this city, was
interviewed by a representative of 1 in.
Ny.w,H this week, respecting the origina'
attempt to conduce nn industry < f this kind,

What made jou start such an enterprise?
'• I was impressed with the idea, after a
eareful consideration, that a woolen mill
would pay in British Columbia. 1 had reasons to believe it then, and my knowledge
and obseivatiou since then have abundantly
satitfied me that I was correct."
Wliy is it, time the piestut mill at New
Westminster is not operated ?
"The came of tho.failure of thn mill at
that point was purely mUmuuagemeut. The
operators lacked experience and ability. It
makes but very little ^liOVreiici; what the
prospects are for any industry, for unless it
is handled carefully ami intelligently, it
must eventually fail. Whatever doubt there
might have been as to the practicability of
auch an enterprise then there is no need of
I any such doubt to exist today. I believe
that it was a grand enterprise then and
most emphatically, do I believe it to be the

The fact that Secretary Traey, In a
letter to Senator W. D. Waahburn, alg-
nifies his willingness to assign the Bailing ship Constellation to the duty of carrying to the starving people of Russia
the (lour and bruiidstiifts given for that
purpose by tlie northwestern millers
recalls the fact, says the New York
Times, that this ship has been on a similar mission before. This was in IMS,
when immense quantities of provisions
were given by the Americans for the
starving people of Ireland.
The Constellation is a pretty old (hip
now, and many of her timbers will not
stand the hardships of long cruises in
succeeding years, so that her mission to
Russia, if accomplished, will probably
be her last active duty afloat It will
be a fitting end to the career of a famous
old man-of-war.
The old Constellation, nearly all of
whose original frames hare been repaired and rebuilt In the present ship,
was completed and launched at Norfolk
in May, 1800, being the second vessel
launched under the then new organization of the navy. Commodore Stephen
Decatur's squadron in the West Indies
was her Hrst assignment to duty.
Ileforc the close of this cruise she encountered the French frigates L'lnsur-
gents and La Vengeance, trouble with
Franco being then In progress, and defeated them both, although the enemy
were greatly superior in guns and men.
She lost her mainmast is this action, a
midshipman and seven topmen going
with it. A gold medal was given to
Commodore Truxton, her commander,
by congress for his gallantry.
When In the Mediterranean on Its
second cruise the Constellation, then in
command of Capt. IT. Campbell, joined
the American squadron off Tripoli, a
squadron famous in naval annals. The
frigate Constitution, with Commodores
Decator and Freblo and Midshipman
McDonough, figured in the attack which
followed the Constellation's arrival.
After the victory the frigate proceeded
to Syracuse and saw no more active
duty of a warlike sort until June, 1813,
when she was' blockaded by a large
English foroe. Several attempts were
made to destroy or capture It by boats
from the English fleet, all of which resulted in heavy loss to the enemy.
The Constellation is put down in the
old records of the navy as a fleet sailor
and a stanch ship In heavy weather.
In her early days Bhc is credited with a
speed of ten knoto on a wind and twelve
and a half knots free, a speed which she
is known to have maintained even after
she attained to the age of three score
years and ten. In the summer of 1883,
when cruising with the naval oadcte
along the edge of the gulf stream, studding sails on, she made thirteen knoU
throughout a whole morning. In heavy
v#*tb9r she can outride any of the old
, aulpa. \% her crujef; In thejlediter-
' ranean in 18113, for •\amnMBavb.*.
, through srbeavy gale lb wt - %. , jTich
eighty-gun ship was lost, and during
the same night, while lying-to, she
weathered the French admiral's ship
seven miles.
The Constellation has been In every
part of the navigable ?lobe, and as long
as wooden sailing ships were the models
of the day she was among the foremost
of her class. Everyone of her lines u
symmetrical, and when she sails unrier
a full Bpread of stun1 sails a prettier
sight cannot be found. She is reported
to have beaten the whole llritish fleet
on a wind in the Mediterranean in 1534.
Although originally a thirty-six-gnn
ship the Constellation's battery has
been cut down in the course of her
many alterations until to-day Bhe carries but twelve, these being smooth
bores of an old type. She carried a
pivot gun amidships until 1833, when it
was taken out and her pivot ports built
in. For a good many years she has
been the practice ship attached to the
Naval Academy for the summer cruise
ef the naval cadets. This cruise only
lasts about ninety days, and throughout
the remainder of the year it has been
the cHstom of the department to put
her out of commission. These short
tours of active duty have resulted in
prolonging her life far beyond the period allotted to the frigates Independence, Ohio and L'nited .States vessels
which were built early in the century
and which have long since passed off
the navy list. The Constellation re-
turn"d from her last cr lisc with the
naval cadets in fairly good trim, and
were it not that, the new government
pr-ictice ship will noon be completed to
take her place at the Naval academy
she would doubtless live: to see several
more summer crutMS, and Llius perhaps
crown her glorious career with a century of service, for some of her timbers
nt least were a part, of the Constellation. Senator Tracy's statement in his
letter to Senator Vv'aslilmrn, that she
"can be sent at short notice." shown
that the "old ship is not dead yet."

Yesterday morning some men wen
hauling a seine in the gulf, and when
they were inside the second bar they
noticed a large fish in the haul, says the
Galveston News. In shallow water the
fish was found to be • sawfish, and a
large one at that. The seine was
dragged to the beach and the fish as-
cured. On iU back were six pilot fish, i
which held on as if they were part of I
the prize. With difficulty they wen
detached and four of them saved. The
aawflsh measured 1SX feet in length
and 4X feet in breadth and weighed 850
The pilot fish wen quite smalL In
deep water they swim before the sawfish on each aide of the anout or aaw,
and on reaching shoal water they attach themselves to the back of the
large fish by an oral sucker. This
sucker resembles the sole of an old-
fashioned rubber shoe, and the power
of auction is auch that it requires a
strong pull to detach them. Their special use or duty has loaf remained a
matter of dispute. J
A Victim »e Bis Theory.
Borne time ago an eminent Cincinnati
physician said: "When I began the
practice of medicine a young man whose
constitution waa even more powerful
than my own started in to practice
with me. His pet theory waa that a
man couldn't have too much fresh air,
that he wanted to have it circulate inside and outside of his body, and to that
end when the rigors of winter came on
he spurned thick clothing, which I insisted on wearing. If we rode together
the heaviest garment he had was an ordinary sack coat. I wore mufflers and
a great coat buttoned up to the ehin.
My young and ambitious partner has
occupied a narrow home in the cemetery a gnat many years, placed there

The German government will construct a separate buiUli ? at the fair
grounds to represent Germany and to
serve as u central point for the German
interests. Commissioner Wermuth will
have his office in this building. A feature of the German exhibition will be
the "German Village of the Middle
Ages," which will be built on the ".Midway Plalsanee" under the auspices of
the Deutsche bank of Berlin. It will
show the architecture and home life of
the German peasants of that period and
also the household Industries and German village life of the present day.

XVe are bound to pursue the road question so long as there is occasion for it. We
will not quarrel with 1'etrotiam V. Nasby
about cross roads. What we want is a
trunk road. The cross roads and forks will
be an utter consideration. We do not need
any forked roads just now. A trail will do
for a bide road for the present, but the main
road needs to be good so that it can be
traveled its entire length at all times of tlie
year. Low marshes that overflow to a
depth of four or live feet for a period of
three months each summer should be avoided altogether iu the through line. We are
glad to see Tne Xkws catch up the .strain

and see the need of doing something to hush

humbled us when we paid taxes to the District officials to use to construct roads near
Victoria, Vancouver and New Westminster
and at the same time think that we were so
blind that we could not see that they were
enjoying the fruits of our labor, while we
were quarreling among ourselves about
where the road should go, for fear it would
take a little oil'our north line or go through

We received last week the first issue of
The Mission Citv Nkwz, published by
Mr. A. H. Howclls. It is an eight-page
journal, well printed, and has a liberal share
of advertising patronage. We wish our
friend of the quill all manner of success in
his new venture,—Chilliwack Progress.
The Mission City News is a new weekly
published at the British Columbia city
whose name it bears. A Telegraph cor*
respondeat visited Mission not long ago and

forehead, Ilia heir like his beard was
gray and beautifully soft. It curled
about his face, His blue eyes were
largo and mild; Indeed the whole expression of his face was that of
rather melancholy patience.
As he walked along he dragged his
feet, giving a slump to bis gate—more
of Indecision than awkwardness. He
greeted Mr. Armil warmly, and
bowed a courtesy that was not so much
rough us untrained, to Miss Brainerd,
"This is my wife, Miss Brainerd," ho
said, i.i tlie same tone that any husband
mifrht have used.

As he stood in the doorway, his eyes
turned back to Leon. "Shall I come
too, pa?" said the child. Miss JJraraerd,
;-,t least, noticed a line quiver pass over
the man's faye before he answered:
"So. 1 shall come back soon. You stay
with your mother.*'
Still, she was looking at him. He
walked out alone. Then she rase, her

features: she felt a little thrill along
her nerves as she glanced at the woman
who had not spoken to her own husband for ten years. This woman did
not look capable of such weird obstinacy; she was pretty, as Mrs. Armil
had aald, but with 11 more delicate and
refined beaut,, than the minister had
expected. "She looks—whom does she
look like?" thought tho minister; "I
declare it is Mono Lisa. She has just
that mysterious smile."
Perhaps a photograph of Mona   Lisa
hanging side by side on the wall with
the Archangel  Michael suggested the
comparison.   Shf  wondered if it was
Mrs. Rogers' taste   that   had selected
them, or the quiet paper on the walls,
the little dash   ot  color in a crimson
drapery for the ugly mantle behind the

to  the  husband.    "Xo,"  she remembered, "Mrs. Armil  said that she  furnished the room to suit him,"
And after a glance at the wife's toilet, a brown alpaca gown made up with
profuse draperies and trimmings of
red velvet, she gave Mr. Rogers credit
for any evidence of taste.
Meanwhile, Mrs. Armil. who wished
to do honor to her guest, had introduced her, like the columns of a country paper as "Rev. Brainerd."
She now set the conversational ball
in motion with: "Rev. Brainerd's been
