1\1 I STORY OF  HER  l.ll't:.
Commissioner   Eva   ltuuth, the late
pre tern, commander of the United States
forces of the Sal va tion Army, Is the Gen-
eral's  fourth daughter.    She was eon
verted   at the age
her earliest days, in which she was able
lu take any pun at all in thc Salvation
war, her whole strength and energy
huve been spent in smne form of work
or other for the salvation of tho world, t
When quite a little miss she used to go
Sli3 personally interviewed and won over
the Council; she bad the matter tnken
up by Parliament, and eventually she
won, by the repeal of the obnoxious bylaw, lhe right for her unity to parade all
day if they chose to do so. Similar results followed the disturbances in Whitchurch, Eastbourne and other places,
When she received on lets  to  proceed
ti New Vork on her mission of mercy
mul love she was in the midst of arrangements for farewelling from the London I
" province "—corresponding to a chief
division here. When it is stated that she
had 860 Held olliccrs, about 200 cadets in '
training and 21,000 soldiers ill her command, it will be Been that she must have |
great administrative capacity.
Her lirst public meeting in America
contained a large hostile clement.  Each
meeting, however, resulted In a complete victory.    Some of the very people
I who hissed  ber  al   the   beginning were
left for   cheering her before she finished.   This,
by the   too,  not   because   of   any plea  to their
I eino'ons as regarded herself, for the ml-
i dresses in each case were of  a spiritual
increase, say to if 100 or $200 might
be more effective in keeping the
Heathen Chinee out, and that is the
object to be arrived at."
Our readers who dislike the Mongolian—and they are the vast majority—will read ihis utterance of a
lending Conservative paper with
pleasure. Mr. Laurier should treasure it.
Can't Draw the Line.
The ami-Mongolian agitation is
taking more tangible form in Vancouver. Lust week a permanent
local committee was appointed to
draft n petition to the Government
in favor of restricting immigration,
and also to communicate with the
mayors of Victoria, Nanaimo and
New Westminster, at tbe same time
forwarding to them copies of the
resolutions passed at the recent
Market Hall meeting.

not necessarily mean an anti-Japanese one (many people in Vancou

Social Inequalities.

London, July 21.—Tho Queen arrived
"n the city last evening ami to-dny, in
private, invested tbo Crown Prince ot
Denmark with the Order uf the (inner
und wiili u titsi ehiHS decoration ol ■ ic*
torlu and Albert cross. Upon both hie
suns. I'rince Christian and Prince
Charles, the Cram! Cross of the Bath
wus conferred ut the situie timo. 'I'he
tjiiecn will nut attend Hie wedding
breakfast. On Thursday, the duy niter the wedding, Her Majesty returt's
io Windsor, whence she intends to go
soon to the Isle of Wight. Among the
presents which hnve been received by
the Princess Mutiil is u magnificent sou
tnlre diamond from .Mr. William Waldorf Asior.
In  connection  with  the    approaching
wedding tt curious phase of Hritish philanthropy bus  been    developed    in    the
Chronicle,   ivhlch    newspaper    recently
urged the Princess .Mitttil not tu give her
sanction to cruelty  by  wearing osprey
plumes  in  her  hat.      In   response,  the
Chronicle litis received    tin    intimation
from the Princess to the effect thut slit
would not wear opprey plumes.     Upon
this  the Chronicle published tin  article
in  praise of Her Itoynl  Highness, and
commending her for her    kindness    ot
heart.     However, it wits observed tlmt
at the royal garden party tit Buckingham palace on  Monday of hist week,
most of  the  feminine  members  of  the
royal family were ttecorated with osprey
pinnies,     ln sore nuirizenient the Chronicle noted tins fact, and appealed to the
Queen to    forbid    lhe use    of    osprey
plumes Hy members or the royal family.
Prince Charles, the bridegroom, is the
seciiui son of the Crown Prince of Denmark, and it is therefore very unlikely
tlmt either  he  or any  of his descendants will ever ascend the throne of Denmark, which is. nt the best, tt  very  insecure piece of property,  for Germany
may overrun anil  own  the country,  as
Prussia did    Sculeswig-Holstein   thirty
years ago, whenever she iiiuls the grent
powers,  which  hnve guaranteed the integrity of Denmark, otherwise engaged
nnd unable to Interfere with her plans.
Prince   Charles   is   u   full     cousin   of
Princess Maud, and the match is said to
be the result of :, real attachment, n file
which will recommend it to many people
who otherwise might regard it unfavorably, Ever since the royal marriage net

It was announced at the tune ot the

that, the Americana do not approve of
Mr. Olnev refusing Ihe half b cause he
is nimble to get the whole loaf, it wiil
be worth while for Lord Salisbury to
make as many concessions as po-siuie
iu order to attain such a desirable ub-
jeet."
The Daily News also publishes au interview on this subject  with Kt.  Hon.
i James   ISryee,   Liberal   member  of par
liament for the south division of Aber
deen, and well known as the author of
"The American  Commonwealth."    Mr,
Bryce  thought   the  difficulties    in    the
way of an agreement wire lu no way insoluble.     Lord   Salisbury,   he  said,  had
been over-cautious und timid hi the ne
gotiutions.    He sees dangers that rally
do  not  exist.     His  proposal  to  exclude
matters affecting   the   honor   and   integrity of the nation  would    Bern usty
cripple '-he usefulness of a tribunal. .Mr.
Bryce thought that evi n territorial disputes   might  be   submitted.     He   would
not say that he agreed with .Mr. Olney
or that he did not with Lord Salisbury,
but ne certainly thought Lord Salisbury    .
had acted as though a general scheme I "I61"!." t01'
of arbitration and not one   solely   between  England  and  Ih"  Oni ed  States
was being uriangetl,   Mr. Bryce thinks
the proposal of a joint commission ot
arbitration  for  the   Vent y.uelu     dispute
/.voiild hnd a solution even of the settle;!
lands in question.    He believes that th,
presidential con'est will  not prevent n-r
delay   the  conclusion   of  n  treaty,   hut
still  he  would   like   to  see   Lord   S-.'.lia
bury push the negotiations.
Tiie Chronicle, Liberal, says: "With.
out desiring to appear in the least tin
alarmist, we believe tlmt the optimist
views prevailing here as to the settlement of the Venezuelan dispute nre not
shared by ollicial circles in the United
States."

i ied by their one-year old child and
two or three friends, had Btartedfor

and  when about ten miles out Mr.
Grant alighted to make inquiries of If the
the way and hitched the horse to a
| fence rail.    Others of the parly also
alighted, but before Mrs. Grant and
child  could do so the horse, which
had become scared by the fence rail
breaking, run uwiy at a breakneck
'speed, throwing the occupants out
with the above result, thechild miraculously escaping injury.     After
some  delay the services of Dr. Mo*

"Tosh" McKenzic Killed.
The notorious Tosh McKenzic who
formerly worked for Mr. Dawson in
this city, is dead, having been fatally shot by Ed. Bheehan at
Steveston on Tuesday. The latter
claims that the shooting was done
in self-defence, lie was in bis cabin
and McKenzic came in and ordered
him out, claiming that it was his.
Tlic altercation grew warm and Mc-
Kenzie drew a revolver, but before
he could use it Sheehan got bis revolver into action and shot McKen-
zie in the centre of the face. The
bullet took an upward course into
the brain and McKenzie's death
was almost instantaneous. The
coroner's jury found that "McKenzic
came to bis death by a bullet wound
inflicted while in a scullle with Ed.
Sheenan." At the preliminary examination of Sbeehan at Richmond,
Magistrate Atkinson committed the
prisoner to stand his trial for murder at the next assizes, and ho was
taken to the provincial jail at Westminster.
Nanaimo Trunk Una,I.
The sum of $8,000 was voted last
winter for the Nanaimo Trunk Road.
It was understood half of that sum
would be expended at ibis end, in
opening up the road from Dunsmuir
avenue, Union, to Hoys, where it
would connect with the so-called
road built last year to Union wharf,
ightest attention is given
to the wishes of the people hereabouts, or to their interest, tenders
will at once be culled for the construction of this piece of road. The
season is passing, and tbe people
are growing discontented. They
would like to know what is going
to be done about it.—Union News.
On Thursday evening Robt. Hanna, a
miner employed in No. I shaft, while
tilling his boxes through a curtain,came
into contact with a beam overhead,causing an ugly scalp wound and bruising

The Fanners' Outlook.
The waters are receding gradually
in the Fraser and Columbia valleys,
but the injury sustained by many
of the farmers is snid to be serious,
even more so in some respects than
-was that of the high waters of 18114.
The season is a month later, rendering it out of the question for farmers to raise a crop after tbe waters
subsides as was the case two years
since. Then there is the fact that
the water is quite tepid, and this
added to the scorching rays of the
sun scalds the growing crops, especially so the grass. It is asserted that
in two or three weeks at tbe furthest
the river will have assumed its normal state, and that if tbe weather
and the season prove favorable the
root crop may be a fair one.
