London, March ft.—Tlin overthrow of
Kin? Milan, for such his abdication rcallv
is, is regarded in diplomatic circles as a
severe blow to Austria's position in ihe
Balkans, and may possibly load lo war
between Russia and Austria. The Tiadi-
cal party in Servla, under tho leadership
"f M. M. Grintch and Ristics, arc in
favor of draHng closer to Russia
and were warm supporters of
Que"ti Nathalie throughout all her
troubles ■      with her husband.
King Milan undertook revision of Ihe ennsfntion and many important
chances were effected In the constitution;
bv which individual liberty and freedom
of the press were guaranteed. All religions sods will be placed on a footing of
equality. Suffrage was extended to all
inpti paving fifteen francs fl year in taxes
and all classes of Ihe community were
made elidible for election ns Deputies and
only a fourth of the Chamber In consist
of ex-officlal members. Tbe King however still retained Ihe right of declaring
peace ami war mid power of prerogative,
and summoning Skuptsehina, Milan's
Austrian views did not suit (lie Radicals
and thov demanded further amendment
of the constitution permitting thnChnm-
ber lo meet independently of the Royal
pleasure, and vesting represenlatives of
the people with power of declaring
PEACE ANP WAR.
There was not the least chance of Ihe revision committee advising such a sudden
and Revolutionary change, but unfortunately for Austria, Milan's difficulties
with his wife caused him to be regarded
bv bis subjects with a sentiment of very
ill-disguised nnd very well-deserved contempt. Consequently, at tbe last election Ihe Radicals were returned with four
working mnjoritv. Milan would have abdicated then hut for want of sufficient
means to support something approaching
royal stale in private life, but the
King was very poor and dare
not ask the Servian people for a
substantial retiring allowance) so he
chose the onlv alternative and knocked
under to the Radicals. Tbe revised constitution was iben subjected lo further revision on Radical lines, and the situation
will be finally discussed this week. Messrs
Grlntoh ami Ristics concluded to grant
Milan an allowance out of the state treasury so tbnt he might leave the country, as
a longer stay would promote disturbances
throughout Servla, and precipitate action
on the part of Russia and Austria
by compelling both powers lo support
their own party in Servla.
The political outlook in Bulgaria is also
about as black as possible. The relations
between Stambilorff, Prime Minister, and
Prince Ferdinand have become so strained that either one or the other must go
and either event would be tavorable lo
Russian interests In the Balkans. Roth
Stambilorff and tlie Prince are pro-Austrian politically, bill Ihe estrangement
lies In Ihe fact that Ferdinand desires the
Minister of War, Colonel MutkuroU'
removed. The latter, however, is Stoni-
bilnrlT's brother-in-law, of whose vote he
is always certain.
PR1NG1 FERDINAND
Complains be is a mere nonentity, and
maintains that lie ought to be the actual
head of tbe army instead of being as he
is, onlv tbe nominal one. Slamhilorfl"
narly has a large majority in tboSobranje,
ami the Prime Minister declares ami ac-
edes to the Prince's request. However,
the persecution to which Stambilorff, the
King Maker, subjected Major Papoff,
one of tlie best Bulgarian officers and one
ni" the heroes of the Servian war, has engendered a feeling of deep humiliation
throughout the country against the Premier, which may result in his overthrow,
If measures of extrication are nai speedily
devised for n wav out. of Ihe difficulty between Prince and his Minister, tbe conse-
quence will be very Important. The present situation in Romania is similar to that
of Servin.
Pro-Russian ami Anti-Russian lines are
so sharply drawn that the pro-Russians
who are In a majority may at any moment
compel King Charles te abdicate while
the state of politics in Hungary only invites Russian ascendancy and shows the
weakness of the triple alliance.
Madame Adam, in tlie "Contemporary
Review," gives the origin of tlie bail feel-
feeling which sprung up between the
Prince of Wales and Count Herbert Bismarck at the time of the late Emperor
Frederick's funeral. It is learned on undoubted authority that the coolness arose
from the cavalisr manner in which the
fount treated the Prince of Wales when
the latter attempted lo fulfill a delicate
diplomatic mission with which he was entrusted, The matter was concerned with
the
BRUNSWICK SU00I8SI0N.
The Prince undertook tlie measure al the
request of the Duchess of Cumberland,
whose entreaties were supported by her
sister, the Princess of Wales and the
Czarina.
Doctor Karl Peterl is mistaken in stating that Lieutenant Swaine has "stuck"
'II miles from the coast in his attempt to
reach Kinin Pasha through British. Last

it lias been found comparatively easy to

LEPROSY IN AI'STIlAI.IA.
The British colonial office has
received a dispatch to the effect
that leprosy lias put in an appearance
among the Chinese in New Sonth Wale*
•mil that the cry for prohibition of Chinese
immigration which had subsided for the
moment has been again revived by the
popular dread of perhaps the most horrible disease which aO'eds humanity. In
view of the large number of Chinese of
the poorest classes Included among the
immigrants here that several of them have
a leprous taint in their blood, it is nnl
surprising in as much, as leprosv prevails
more or less in many parts of China
lull especially in the districts around Coition and Foo Chow. The medical reports
nf foreign customs refer frequently to the
subject. It is snid that five great epidemics have been recorded since the Rf
teentli century, spreading now to district*
which were previously comparatively free
from the scourge. The spread of tlie dis
ease is due to the increased communication by means of traffic along Ihe coast
and up the Yang Toz river.
In 1R71 it prevailed around Amoy and
In 1881 the local medical officers said
it was common in Canton ami bad laid
linn hold of people in Hongkong and far up
HieYnng Tom has been noted for tbe
prevalence of leprosy, and the latter ha-'
Increased around Shanghai. The Chines.'
themselves appear to have pretty accurate
notions about leprosy anil attribute il to
infection and defective nutrition and climate, ami they oiinlny isolation and better diet as ' remedies. They
distinguish five classes of the desense
ami if is remarkable that in China as In
India there are more male than female
lepers. In India tlie poliev of the government In this treatment of lepers is av<.u-
■illv baled on the proposition that medial science as yet. has discovered no rem-
p'ly for the disease ami that the policy is
practically lo leave it alone,but a grant
of medical relief is given to lepers In voluntary hospitals and special asylums. To
any nne who has travelled in India
and seen tlie Indians, the marvel is that
so many are free from the taint of leprosy
Lepers go about like ordinary people, and
many are given in marriage. Fortunately, though, like most other diseases,
leprosy will only flourish in a congenial
soil, ami it is rare Hint average Europeans
stiller from accidental contact.

THE 8AM0AN DIFFICULTY.
Washington, March I).— Commodnn
Wnlder, who lo-dav was acting Seerotan
of the Navy, sold'to-night that the San
Francisco dispatch about the sinking of
the Nipsic in Samoa waters must be false.
The Navy Department, he says, has received no advice whatever about the alleged naval combat, and advices from
Auckland, New Zealand, Ihe nearest tele
graphic station to Samoa, would sureli
reach the department at Washington
sooner than at San Francisco. The naval
officer Is stationed at Auckland. witl
Instructions to telegraph to the department
ail important occurrences In Samoa, and
'be commodore feels confident that had
■titv such thing happened as the sinking
of the Nipsic this officer would have notified the department here. Apia, Samoa,
Is 5,000 and Auckland about 7,001 miles
from San Francisco by water, but tole-
Trapbically this station is :! Tin miles
nearer Auckland than San Francisco. As
■able despatches can onlv come from
•Vuckland to the United States via Melbourne, Bombay, London, and New York.
Commodore Wnlden also stated thai tbe
officers generally disregarded the storv of
Hie sinking of the Nipsic. As to there-port
that the IJnlted Spites war vessel Charleston was ordered to be completed immediately and gel ready for sea, tlie commodore says is absolutely false anil Hint no
such orders have been s«nt front the department.
OI'FICE SEEKERS   FBW.
Washington, March 0.—The crowd of
office seekers are smaller at this time than
on any other similar occasion. To-day
there was a noticeably falling off and by
noon in the Interior depart moot and post-
office department all visitors who wished
to see the heads of departments aojom-
nlisetl their object mid It-It. An explai.a-
fion is that notice litis been given by
heads of nearly all tlie departments thai
no changes would bo made for the present and until there was an epportunitv
for the examination of papers. Postmaster-General Wanamaker proposes, first,
to consider the President's postofflce appointments for which nominations have
been sent in. hut failed of confirmation;
and ho will then fill oilier vacancies In
ibis class, and he expects by the end of
'be week to be able lo consider applications for positions in department service.
The Secretary of the interior. Hen. Noble,
will probably appoint bis assistant secretary and some of (be heads of divisions
early next week, lie has had hut little
time thus far to consider the matter of
appointments bul papers on all cases are
on file at the department. Th ■ n.imi s of
al Intsl three of the candidates for Public
Printer have been formally presented to
the President, and the endorsement of
si.me of them seems to be weighty enough
to secure the four applicants positions in
the cabinet.

Letters From the People,
COURT FEE*.
Editor Cockier:—In perusing your
paper for a few days back, I noticed some
discussion on the question of fess appropriated by Justices of the Peace. Incidental to the hearing and determination of
cases which may finni lime to time be
brought before them. As I understand
the complaints of "Justitin," placed, by
the way, in a very fair and full manner
before tba public, they are to tlie effect,
that each Justice of the Peace imposes a I claimed to equal the lia
fee for his own hearing and determination
of a case. If such be tlie procedure, a
very wrong system seems to exist. As a
mailer of fact, only one fee can bo demanded and imposed.   Such fee can be
! divided between  the several Justices sit-
[tingupon  the case.   My advice for tbe
; future would be to pay the extra fee under
, protest and then sue for the amount so
, exacted, or to bring the matter before the
I Grand Jury at Its first sitting.   Il Is nol
very long ago when a Justice of the Peace
I w.is   sentenced in   Ontario   to  eighteen
I months, or two years' Imprisonment, I
forget  which, by one of the  Judges for

NOVELS   AND   NOVELS.
It was the "Wise Man" who said "Of.
making books there is no end," and In
also added that much study was a weariness to the flesh. But bad Solomon lived
in our day he would to a much greater extent have realized the truth and force of
hisstatement. Now-a-days we are treated
to all forms ami kinds of hooks, and lite
multiplication of these goes on unceasingly. All manners of subjects are written about in good, bad and Indifferent
way, until one's soul becomes weary as lie
tries to follow an infinitesimal number of
these which from time to time meets his ,
eye. A few of these we will consider, as
well as a question or two growing out of
this multiplication of books. After one
lias read lUrnrr's "The Immortal," has
thoroughly analyzed tbe motives of the
author ami digested his sentiments, the
question will naturally arise in his mind
whether or not it pays to read such novels ;
not from a financial point of view, of
course, but from a literary, or to be still |
more specific, from a menial standing
point.
Novels like Davdet's, and Zola's and
(Iaiiorui's. and the English snd American schools, Which are based on realism.
cannot bring rest to the rentier. He must
be perturbed the while he reads the book.
And it is absolutely impossible for him to
finish the work without drawing largely
upon tbe emotions. This ia not healthful j
any more than it is healthful to get angry ;
or intensely jealous or lo bats, or, for that
matter, toiove too earnestly. Each one!
of these passions, if allowed full sway,
will cut into tbe very heart of one's life.
Therefore, it is best to maintain throughout an equanimity in all things. By following that rule we conserve the forces of
our physical being, and the same argument applies to the mental being. If we
read books that create an unhealthy
sentiment, or drain our emotiens, we
impair the forces of our mind. Unhealthy sentiment is a poison, and
this expenditure of emotional force results
inadeadeningof the sensibilities. Another
argument there is against aconstant reading of unhealthy books, and it is a practical one too. Life in its best phases is
somewhat wearisome; we have enough
actual trials to meet and overcome, and
enough sorrow to bear us down; without
seeking for them in the pages of sensational novels. Of ceurse, it is a great art
to dissect character ami analyze human
motives and tbe cultivated reader finds
pleasure in studying tbe strength or defects ef the writer, whose books he reads'
Put in many of the sensational novels of
the day, we find little or nothing of this
art. We do not find nature exposed without artistic effects. Humanity is certain]?
bad enough without exaggerating ils
weakness for dramatic effect. We therefore get none of Ihe finesse of literary
genuis, but we become thoroughly acquainted with tbe brutal side of life. Is
this not a fact and will not the thoughtful
observant reader agree that it is ao. The
literary student undoubtedly finds some
pleasure In reading these books, because
he wonts to become acquainted with the
idiosyncrasies of contemporaneous writers. But does the man or woman who
reads for rest and to secure a respite from
the surging waves of events about, litem,
gain anything by their perusal? There
are no loporflc qualities in a modern realistic romance. There is about as much
of the anodyne in a book of this kind as
there is in tobacco or collec for some persons.
If one wants real pleasure, pleasure Dial
is refined and lasting, from book reading
he will not find it in perusing the wearing
and tearing sensational novel, but in tlie
old style of bookB, which so many remember with joy. No harm results from reading "Sinbad the Sailor," or Aladdin and
his lamp, or the pretty sentimental tales
of Sir Walter Scott, or Don Quixote or—
the long list of hooks which may be read
with delight ami profit. It is questionable
if it is wise to read sensational books albeit the mental palate is temporarily lick-
led with the food exciting as they do the
imagination and pandering to a mobid
laste. The idyllic and sentimental stories
in our opinion are harmless, They do
not rack tlie being, while they keep tlie
fancy fresh snd the mind at ease. If outwore to ask the question, which is the
better of the two, it is notdlfficult to find
the answer.
I hat tlie few people who read bis productions have been immensely amused on
r-ading that a gentleman has been left ns
"charge de affairs" at Chemair.us. Our
evening contemporary will do well to purchase Cassell's penny instructor and try I
to learn from il the correct phrase.
Well!—Well!!—Well!!! "A ribald
letttr,!" "Social interests, 11" "disgusting
1-tler.!!!"   "perished prematurely,!'!!"
legitmato enterprise!!!!!" Poor old c.oteiu.
Your senility is daily becoming more on I
more   apparent.   Come   now,   don'l   be
jealous because you got  "scooped."    You
ought to know too that life's too short and
eternity teo long  for yon to   imperil your |
chances hereafter in Hearing false witness !
against your  neighbor.    If vou can't tell i
tho truth always remember that you have
sot the ability to tell a plausible lie, Ami!
because you haven't,   and you   know it.
ond  feel    the  lamentable    lack—which i
after all   you cannot   help, since   nature
wasn't kind—don't   beeo   unkind.    You
are simply   mad.    Thai's   all,   ami such i
puerile   madness   does not   become your
ancient  dignity.   So  don't do  it again.
Are you   so OLD   that you cannot   or will
nol learn?   And if ail the newspapers on j
this coast   were of  your   stamp—but we ]
forbear,   You are not a newspaper.   Accept our  apology for nearly   numbering
you among them.

Agent,  Nanaimo,
Ai.Tiioctni there is no doubt that in
early ages China was tin most advanced
of all nations in art, science, and general I
civilization, for centuries it has in this respect hern asleep, and lias been relrogra- j
dint; while oilier nations have been rapid-
ly advancing. Now, however, il would
appear that China lias awakened from its
long stupor, ami has resolved If possible
to take its place ill Ihe march of progress.
11 has opened its eyes and perceives the
great advantages derived from European
civilization, and has thrown offtheleth-
aitliy in which II has 1 wen so long enwrapped. Instead of the Confucian the- j
arizing, which has prevailed among the
Mandarins from time immemorial, schools
and colleges are being established for
teaching modern sciences ami their application to human industries; and these institutions are overcrowded with young
men most anxious to learn. Already the
Chinese coast is provided with what is
generally conceded as the hesl lighthouse
service in tlie world. Throughout China
thousands of miles of telegraph wires arc
being erected every year, and the con-
el ruction of vast railroad systems has commenced.    It has also resolved to improve
and enlarge its existing network of internal water routes.

I lie Haul; of British Columbia.
The British Columbia Tannins Company K formed
for 1 Im purpose of carrying <m ine business of maun-
fat turing all kinds of leather, belting,trunks, ami the
manufacturing nf all kinds of leather goods and goods
in which leather forms any nan.
Any number of hldei Can lie procured at a reasonable price here and in I llier parts of the province.
Fuel can be procured here cheaper than in anv other
town in the province.
The shipping facilities here are of the best.
Any amount of hark for tanning purposes can be
procured in the vicinity.
A large proportion of the heavy leather now used in
rhia Province is brought from the United States.
The bides In this Province are better adapted for
heavy leather than the Eastern hides.
Now most of the heavy leather manufactured in
the Eastern Provinces is made out of hides brought
from Chicago, Northwest Territories and Hrinsli
Columbia.
Besides supplying this Province, a market for these
goqti.s can readily le found as far Castas Montreal,
Owing to the largely increased demand for these
mpnrad with any previous period and the
liich thi-. city affords for manufacturing
t.iern, a largs profit can be assured,
I*, i* also proposed to manufacture buckskin gloves,
as there is an unlimited supply of deer hides, and the
hides can be tauned and made Into gloves at a Rood
profit.
It is proposed to erect qutidings in the City of Nanaimo for the manufacturing of said articles! the
buildings ;ind machinery will com about $15,000.
The calls on the stock will not exceed ten per cent,
at any onetime and will nol he made oftenertnnn once
