Notes of the Exposition���Another Duel
Fiom Rothsohililo-Liibersuo Affair.
Paris, April 7.���The advance guard,
of the nrmy of foreigners inavding
Paris for the Exposition, has made its
entry and a very large proportion are
Americans. Tha hotels are already
filling up and the prices of everything
are rising.
At the exposition itself everything is
bustle and confusion. Heavy draught
teams line the streets adjoining tbe
exposition buildings waiting to deposit
their loads of exhibits. The American
exhibitors nro finding themselves seriously handicapped in preparing for
tbo installation, owing to the unex-
poted congestion on the railroads between Havre and Paris and also on tbe
tracks within tho exposition grounds.
There is a continnal struggle between
representatives of every nation to get
oars in the grounds, bnt the French
poonlo hold the key to the situation
and take good care that their own onrs
aro taken to their exhibit spaoe and
unloaded before those of the United
States and other nations. Russia and
Belgium are the only countries favored. United Stntes Commissioner Genernl Peck is disturbed by this situation
nud to expedite matters has stationed
men nlong the railway, from Havre
to Paris, lor the purpose of pushing
through the oars carrying Amerioau
Tho talk of society is of the crop of
duels springing from the De Lnbersac
do Rotbsohildo quarrel, wbioh is really
tbo fruit of ant i-Semite feeling. Tbe
affair is of trivial origin, dating from
the school days of the two principal
aotors, when on one occasion Oomte de
Lnbersno found Baron Robert de
Rothschilde iu possession of tbe college tennis oonrt and asked him to
quit. De Rothschilde refused and in
the course of a dispute whioh ensued
De Lnbersac oalled him a "dirty
Jew." The result caused an ill feeling lasting during the remainder of
their college days. Oomte Ue Lnber-
sao was recently a member of a jockey
club, and an unpleasant remark was
repeated to bim which was attributed
to his old disputant, and ho wrote an
insulting lotter to Baron Rothsobildes.
A It hough the seoonds deolared he was
n minor, and debarred from seeking
satisfaction, a meeting between the two
is only uoBtponed, as De Rotbsnhilde
is demanding to settle tbe mnttor on
the field of honor. The offensive reference to Rothscbilde's second, M.
Saint Allury, insinuating that he is a
Jewish coward, made in tho letter by
Oomte De Dion and Oomte Boni De
Oustollauo.ooting in the oapaoity of De
Lubersao's suoonds, has brought a challenge from M. Saint Allary to Oomte
De Dion who is tbe principal Beooud
of Do Lubersao. This attack on the
Rothsobildes is considered most unkind an they nre remarkable for their
generosity toward all oharitable under-
takings iu Paris.

Loudon, April 7.���From a oity of
nervous forebodings, political ���excitement and almost stagnant business,
Dublin has bean transformed into a
capital as gay and busy as any European oentre. The coming of the Queen,
though to a Ontholio oouutry iu the
middle of Lent, bas started a whirl uf
festivities suoh as bas not been in Ireland since tho good old dnys of whioh
Lever wrote. The Irish nobility have
flocked aoross the Channel from Eug-
lisb homes in unprecedented numbers,
and from tbe south, the west and the
north of Ireland itself, old country
families have poured into Dubliu.
Tbere ie a sulfioieut nnmber of tbe
members of the Ministry in the oity
to hold n Cabinet Council. There are
lovely women nightly dining in gorgeous dresses and shining W'th jewelry,
wbich has not been worn for many
days, to make an Irish lovee of which
any court might be prond. Tbe Ons-
tle, whore the Lord Lieutenant holds
bis away is naturally oentre of atrao-
rinn. but the aucieut building cnn hold
only a few. There tho Duke^of Devonshire, Dnke of Aberoorn, Marquis
of Lansdowne, Home Secretary Ridley
and a nnmber of Peers aud Peeresses
bave been dining in state every night
this week. The brilliant uniforms of
the officers of the Life Guards from
London, of the Duke of Connnugbt's
ni nil', ami the court nuilorm of Ireland's
dignitaries, nre nightly blended with
the blaok attire of the celebrated civilians. The Shelbourno Hotel has been
tbe oentre of gniety. There, almost
every visitor bas a title. Though many
of tbe most distinguished foreigners
learned with chagrin that thoy could
not get rooms and had to be satisfied
with bumble lodgings and dinners.
Owing to the presence of thieves
in the oity and tho very large
amount of jewelry oarelessly displayed, only those staying at the Sbel-
bourne are allowed to enter the outer
doors of tbe hotel without speoifying
whom they want to see, and nre kept
in the cold for further inspection. A
well known but badly dressed peer,
wbo seliloni visits Ireland, underwent
this ordeal tbe other dny, and almost
exploded with wrath whon a gold laced
porter barred his way and made him
show his cauls before allowing bim to
enter. The most popular form of
evening amusement bus been tbo chartering of trolley cars by largo parties
nnd taking rides throughout tin crowded and illuminated streots. With the
influeuoe of social gaiety,politioal considerations are temporarily in abeyance.

Greeted Yosterday by Fifty Thousand
Dublin, April 7.���The children's
demonstration, which olosed the
Queen's; week, was one of the most
gladsome days tbe Queen or Dublin
has known for years.. Oertain it is
that the Qneeu is making fresh conquests daily, and her many aots of self
Baoirflce have won the hearts ot Ireland's people. Today's demonstrations
had the elements of joy whioh the
Queen has experienced bnt seldom in
reoont gloomy months. Thore were
miles of oheering chidreu under a continuous oanopy oi fluttering flags.
Tho charming weather tended to make
the celebration in overy way delightful. The genuineness of tbe children

Dublin, April 7.���At about 4 o'clock
the Quoen and the Princess, nooom-
puiiind by a small escort of polico.drove
ontside of Phoenix Park into the
country near Dublin. The weather
was delightfully  spring  like   and tbo
gathered there Thursday evening when
Bouie random war talk took place.
Mr. Chamberlain is reported to bave
said seriously: "I think wo are dealing with better fighters as individuals
than any rogular soldiers of tho contingent. The Roers seem to me to
have been oautious and yet nro full of
Superlatives have been almost eliminated from the war comments and
with thi disappearance of possible foreign complications, the editors and
publio speakers take a mi dorate tone
The depressing inoidents of the w ek
have caused England to resign herself to a long straggle. Thn disposition to find fnnlt with the War Office
for not having anticipated the necessity of an enormous number Of horses
aeeras unjustified, for it iB learned
that before the relief of Kimberley
and the destrnction of horse flesh caused by the surrounding ol General
Cronje, the War Offloe wired to its
agents all over the world, particularly
In North and Sonth America, giving
unconditional power to buy hor.ios un-
Iimitediy until fnrther orders. Tbe
circumstances in the way of assembling and transporting animals were
such, however, that homes bonght in
a month oan hardly reach Lord Roberts before June.
Nothing more waa heard this week
of the movement intiated by Ministerial members of the Honse of Commons
to petition the Government to pro-
olaiin Ornuge Free State annexed to
the British Empire. London bankers
are transmitting gold or its equivalent
in large amounts to pay the eheoks of
British officeis who are held prisoners,
and tbe Standard Bank of Pretoria,
honors all such checks. Therefore, as
no limit is placed on the luxuries
bonght by prisoners, they live in
much comfort. In fact, tbeir messes
are probably mnoh better provided than
aro those of,the offloers at Bloemfontein. Some of tbe oaptives have been
there for months and have a regular
service, via Hamburg and Lorenzo
Marquez, wbioh bring tbem good
things to eat, smoke, drink and wear.
The British officers box, ..fence and
play various games, inolnding billiards.
There is no disposition here to make
much of tbe attack made on Prinoe
of Wales,Wednesday. But the British
see in it, the consequence of continental press attacks on Great Britain.
Thus the London Times says: "The
suppression of facts, the propagation
of glaring ialseboods and turbulent
abusiveness operating on the weak
minds are almost certain, sooner or
luter, to have an issue in aotions from
whiob to do the writers justice, they
would shrink with horror."
The Times holds tbe German press
responsible for the personal scurrilities
directed against the Prince, referring
to the Kladderadatsoh, whioh is not a
Socialist sheet, but whioh ranks up
towards London Punoh. Suoh alleged
scurrilities as tbe Kladderadatsoh
prints are sytematio, yat The Times
avers the German press is controlled
by tho Government and tbe German
law of lese majesto iB the moBt stringent in Enrope.
Lieut. Scott of the Pheasant
Shot by a Sentry at
Refused to Give Countersign
When Challenged by
The Guard.
Mines Resume Work at Rossland���News of the
Viotoria. B. O., April 7.���Close on
the heels of the disappearance of Assistant-Paymaster Clarko, of the Lenn-
der, comes a story from Esquimau
whioh is much more serious than tbe
one nbove mentioned.
About midnight last evening or
shortly before it, Lieutenant Scott,
Navigating Officer of H. M. S. Pheasant, being tbe officer of tbe wutub,
came ashore and walked up to the
Navy Yard for the unrposo of inspecting the guard, whicli since tbe opening of the war and the prevalence of
reports of Fenian machinations has
been doubled. This guard consisted
of four men and a non-commissioned
officer of the Royal Garrison Artillery,
a fact which* ronders somewhat curious his attempt to include tbem in his
tour oi inspection, it being a rule iu
tbe service that officers only visit
guards monnted by their own command. He was at once challenged by
tbe sentry, Gunner Higgins, but no reply, so it is alleged, was forthcoming.
The instruction of the gnards beiug
of late to challenge aud if not answered to Are; the sontry discharged a
blank onitridge. It is stated that instead ot taking the warning, the ofli-
oer turned and began to run. The
guard then fired two shots, both of
whioh too effect and Lieut. Scott
dropped. He was at once removod to
the naval hospital and the suigoon in
obarge being absent, the Burgeon of
the Egeria and those of other vessels
in port were summoned. The former
remained with him all uight and returning tbis morning, shook his bend
when questioned ns to the officer's
chances of recoovory. Ho remained
aboard but a few minutes then i('turned to bis patient. Lieut. Scott is a
young officer, boing still under
twenty-five. He has been two years on
tbis station,being posted to tbe Pheasant on her last commission October 17,
J. M. Kollie, M. P. P.,   Accuses Him
of Acting a Dual Role.
J. M. Kellie, M.P. P., in a letter

"A man who will act in the dual
oapacity of attrrney-general of tho

Shipments Will Begin.
Rosslaud, B C, April 7.-Thn shipments for the week wero 81)3 tons.
Tlm I.ci Roi sent 873 tons and the I. X.
L. 30 tonB to tbo smelter. A number
of miners in tne Lo Roi resumed work
tbis mcrning in a body and with the
beginning of noxt woek making nl
contracts will ensue. The men nre at
present working merely to test the
ground with a viow to determining.
what thn work is worth, this being
preliminary to agreeing on a contract
price. Similnr methods will be followed in tbo Wnr Eagle and the Centre
Star next weok.
Tho LoHoi now hns plenty of ntopes
opened to begin producing oro on tho
old scale as soon as the mine is in full
operation, but it will probably be a
week before tbo shipments much the
nvoruge whioh prevailed before the
shut down.
With the War Eagle and the Centre
Star tho oapacity of the nir compressors nud hoists will hnvo to bo centered
on development exclusively for the
next three months in older to opeu
enough now ground to justify a resumption of shipments, with a snfe
reserve of oro nhoud. The Iron Mask
is likely to continue shipping about a
carload a day, if not more. The Evening Star nnd I. X. L. will also ship
two to four carloads n month each.
Wbatevor deorease the nhipnients
mny show on nccount of the stoppage
of the supply from the War Eagle and
Ceutre Star, is likely lo be made up
from othor mines.wbich will come forward into the milks of the regular
shippors. These inolndo tbo Josie, the
No.J, nud the Niokle Plate, whioh nre
now putting up hoists for the purposo.
It is not an overestimate to sny that
before the War Engle and Centre Star
aro ready to resume shipping,Iho other
mines mentioned will hnve run the
woekly output of the camp up to the
average total wbich prevailed before
the shutdown. When these two mines
resume shipments, their productions
will probably constitute an increase
over the old totals for tbo camp.

Whether the convention at Vanoou
ver him nerved the good purpose of
clearing tbe air we shall not know for
a few days yet. It has disposed of
Mr. Martin as leader of tbe Liberal
party In the Province, but it remains
to be seen whether it bas disposed of
him ns Premier. In the one case only
a section of the people are directly interested ; tbe other cloBely concerns
the entire population. To defeat biro,
however, in his attempt to capture
Ibe Liberal leadership is doubtless a
lonii step iu the direction of ousting
him and his Government and getting
quit of  both.
What is to follow next will depend
largely, if not entirely, on the Lien-
tenant-Governor, After his failure
at Vancouver it might bo expected
that Mr. Martin would recognise and
acknowledge the hopelessness of bis
position and at once determine to give
up the light. But let no one be deceived into supposing that he will do this
ol his own free will. We shall be safe
iu 1 in lulling tbat tbe thing wbioh
any rational being would do is the
very thing which Mr. Martin will
not do. lie is never so completely in
hid true element as when defying public sentiment. To be contrary anddis-
' agreeable is to him the highest enjoyment of life. Any other mnn nnder
the circumstances would accept defeat
and go to the Governor with his resignation, but if loft to his own will Mr.
Mnrtin will bang on to office and
tiring on the olections whenever it best
suits his own convenience, with the
most sol lime iniliiTorence to any feeling
or opinion the public may have.
Then is nothing to expeot from him
except the unexpected. But the Governor may see in that extraordinary
outbnrat of indignation at Vancouver
tin1 Utter lutility of supposing that Mr.
Martin run ever carry the country, and
may resolve to bow to the storm and
call bim nil'. No rending of the constitutional barometer cnn tell us how
fur Hia Honor is compromised. It is
generally thought tbnt his fortunes and
Mr. Martin's are bound up together,
and that if one falls so must tho other.
No donbt if he permits his favorite to
play the game through to the end, he
must abide the consequences. But it
is possible lie may save his own skin
by abandoning Mr. Martin now. If
the fall of the Federal nxe oan be pro-
vented by the instant dismissal nf bis
present Premier, the Govornor bas n
deep enough regard for that first law
of nature to look aftur himself. This
is what mny happen. Bnt let no one
bnoy himself np with the hope that
Mi Martin will voluntarily surrender.
There whs n deplorable negloot of the
virtues In Mi Martin's make-up, and
the virtue nf resignation was not of
I       thai were cultivated.
H'ire is some history.    It   is   contributed by "Au   Irish-American Kpii-co
pal olergyuian,"   through a letter to p
New   York   newspaper:   "The   Queen
is of tho old Irish royal strain.    She is
not only a Gnelpb  and a  Stuart,   she
is one of   the   royal  O'Connors.    The
last Irish sovereign   of the   whole  island was Roderick O'Connor. His sons
were   slain.    His    daughter   married
Hugo de Lacy    Their  daughter   married 11 Ue Burgh, Earl of Ulster; from
them descended Ellen, wife of   Robert
Bruce, King of  Scotland.    (Curiously
enough, the mother   of   Robert   Bruce
was a  descendant of Rodeiick O'Connor, the last ol the great   kings, a supreme   monarch    of    Ireland.)   The
granddaughter   of Robert   Bruce,   the
Princess   Margery, nianiod   the  Lord
High      Steward     of     Scotland,   and
through   her tho  Stuarts  claimed   the
Scottish  crown.    From   thence   it  is
easy to trace bow the   royal   blood   of
Ireland, Scotland and   England   meets
in tbe   person   of   tbe leigning Queen
Victoria.    I   venture    the    statement
that il the Queen, on arriving in Dublin were to say:   'I   come not only  as
the   Queen   of   England,   but   us   the
daughter  of  the old   Itish   inouiircbe,
constitutionally    representing   tbem,'
and   appealing   as  n   daughter   of the
last  of   the  royal   O'Connors,    to my
kinsmen and subject,' there would be n
shout of  Irish   loyalty   jnd  chivalry
which   has never boon hoard since the
days of Taru. "

On the eve of tho convention Mr.
Martin's Vanoouver organ, Tbo World,
said: "We have every confidence that
the gathering tomorrow will be imbued with those lofty ideals which
have ever been associated with Liberalism, and that the issues to bo met
will be faced witb a determination to
do the best that in each one lies for the
common cause." We need say nothing of the^ssociatiou, but the particular ideal that imbued tbe oonvention
was so lofty that it was quite out of
the reaoh of Mr. Martin and his
friends. The issue it prevented was
faced witb admirable determination.
Some of them broke through the
doors���but never mind how it was
done, it was done, and that is tho main
It is believed tbat iu Nelson and at
other places in Southern British Columbia efforts ure beiug made to get
foreigners on the voter's lists through

Why Wenr llnl.f
Why do both men and women persist
In wearing huts': uskB Pearson's Mugu-
zinc. There are threo reasons why we
should wenr clothes. We mny wear
I hem for the snke of decency, for the
sake of warmth or for the sako of display. None of these rensous applies to
Ihe wearing of hnts. Of course, thero
are head coverings that nro warm, inch
us tbe Icelander's senlskiu hood or the
usbermin's toque; but, ns 11 rule, there is
no real warmth iu tho hut of either sex.
When a woman pins a light structure of
strew and artificial lluwers on thu top
of her hair, she never for an Insliint itu
ngines that the thing will keep her from
Inking cold. The masculine tup hat is
certainly warm on a hut day, but It is
very fur from warm In cold weather.
Neither are hats worn for the purpose
of display. Doubtless there nre times
when women make the hat the occasion
of displaying their fondness for dead
birds, muslin flowers nnd other beautiful
objects, but this is only when fashion has
decreed Unit big huts shall bo worn. At
olher times the female hat is so microscopically smnll lliut it could not bu suc-
ceeefully used for displaying anything,
As for men's lints, tbey never display
nnythiug except Ibe ntrociius tuste, which
make* them fashionable. Why, then, iii
Ihe name of nil that is sensible, do men
und women wenr huts?
As a rule, every mnn nnd every womnn
looks better Without n hat than wilh one.
This Is why we all take off our bats ��'

An Invalid staying nt one of the large
Sanitariums In the oust was astonished
the other day to hear her physician say
that n mnjority of the .MJO patients there
were 111, directly or indirectly, from eating half cooked cereals. Nothing, he declared, was moro ruinous to the digestion
than n breakfast made from uncooked
cereals. He included ull the Instantaneous foods of this kind in his diatribe, declaring that all were equally Indigestible
nnd ended with Ihe dictum that nny cereal must be homo cooked for at least
live hours before it Is in proper condition
to ho eaten. While this is perhaps a
rather radical view it is one that is held
by many authorities in domestic science.
Kvory housekeeper will like to err on tho
right side, nud sho will find thnt it Is
really a simple thing 10 cook the breakfast Cereal overnight. Stand tho double
boiler of breakfast food on the bnck of
the range when preparations for the
evening meal nre begun. By bedtime,
when tho kitchen fire goes out, it will
have had u long softening,   and  in tho
morning it will really not need to he cooked, only warmed. In winter, when tbo
lire is not npt to die out until late in tho
night, the dish is left stnndlug nil night
on the range. A single trial of the plan
will satisfactorily demonstrate that the
long cooking makes the food more palatable, ns it certainly ndds the comfortable consciousness that It bas probably
much increased its wholesomeuess.

Mr. Robertson said the aim was to
have a universal wage with tho Slocan
���or |!1.25 por dny for the miners, with
11 deducted for  bonrd.    This soale, ho
believed, would ultimately be adopted throughout tin Province. He foresaw this stiiiio time ago, nnd now that
the net I lenient has come, what little
animosity hnd been nrousoil over the
labor troubles should bo dropped and
everybody work together for tho upbuilding of the country. A good miuer
should be able to soouie employment
anywhere, irrespective of hia boing
either a union or non-union miner.

is in   prtab   ilurkni'.ii   with   a   lOgiag
liviir, Him mile   wiilo,    swollen fnr beyond itH niitiiriil   limits.    In   addition
to the vast loss to property in this soo-
tiou, it is calculated   that   between 80
and 40 lives  have boen   Bncrifloed   aud
tho reports ooming  in  from the tribn-
tui-y districts do not   tend to   iinprovo
inuiiiis.    The Hood is  not  unlike tho
disastrous Johnstown Flood somo years
ni;o, in that tin- raging  river,   already
swollen   beyond its  capacity, bore too
heavily  upon nn Immense dam spanning tin1 river  here, breaking   it  und
letting loose   a   reservoir of water  UU
miles lung, half a niilo   wide   and  (ID
feet  deepi   aud    carrying   dritti action
and  death  down  into  the  valley  of
the Colorado   Hiver.    The  gieat  dam
in Colorado River gave away  at   noon
today from tho   enormous   pressure   of
water and with   a  roar   aud   a  crash
swept   the  valleys   below    the     oity
wreoktng the Immense light and powsr
plant and   drowning   ei^ht   workmen.
Small   trees  began    decsending    the
river,   piling    np   agaiUHt   the   dam.
This weight was augmented every moment until   by 10 o'clook there was  a
maps nf debris lodged   against tho dam
wbioh  threatened  the   safety of  the
structure.    In   addition    millions    of
gallons of water, muddy  from its long
jonrmy, was  whirling   and  plnngin?
against the Oo-foot  wall  and  it  was
evident that no wall   could   withstand
the immense pressure. The crisis came
shortly after   II   o'olock,    when   suddenly, with a   report like tli3 roar  of
the oc3au, the  great   waste  of wator,
38 feet high and 500   feet   wide rolled
out uf the centre   suction of   the  dam
down the. lace of the  00-loot wall into
the river below.    This   left a yawning
gap in   the   very  middle of tho  dam
tluough   which   the   debris and wator
poured while thn Hood   was   threatening everything in  its   path.   The  re-
leased water   poured   iuto   the  power
house and caught  eight   employees at
work, drowning ull ol thorn instantly.
The  breaking of   the dam   caused the
wildest excitement   In the  oity.    Tbe
telegraph companies wired   at once   to
places below to   look out (or the grcut
wave and runner? were despatched on
horses to notify   those   living   in   tbe
valleys below tho oity. The telegraphic
messages served as a   timely  warning
to many, but the rushing   wateis   outstripped   the   horsemen    aud    many
houses weie picked up and swept away
hefore th�� occupants could get together
their valuables.    Large crowds gathered   on   the   river   banks   and   persons
were swept   into   the   river  when tbe
dam broke lint all woro saved by boatmen     A crowd of wbite people   numbering U0   living just below   tbe  dam
in tents were seen at their habitations
before the   dam   broke   aud have   not
been   heard   of   since.    It is   believed
that   all   of   them were swept   away.
One man attempting to cross the road,
leading to the bridge   across tbo river,
just as  the   wave   rolled  down,   was
caught and ho and his horse and bnggv
went clown with the  torrent and were
heard of no more.
A family of six nogroes living in
the valley south of tbe city are known
to have been drowned. It is estimated
that more than 100 houses have beon
destroyed and that the loss to propeity
will he great. The breaking of the
dam engulfed tho old water company's
plant below the city, and it is tonight
lying 16 feet under wuter, while tbe
oity is in darkness and without water.
Thn surface of the river throughout
the day hint beon dotted by small
houses or fragments of honaos and
drowned animals, along with trees and
dtibris, all of which bear testimony to
the ravages of tho floods in the moun-
tainsoui regions above Austin. In addition tn the Joss here the International and Great Northern and Austin
and Northwestern Railroads, both entering this city, hive soll'ered sovoroly.
The first named sustained a serious
wreck by reason of the flood this morniug. Thu south bound Oannouhall
train from St. Louis, ou the Interna
tiouiil ami Grent Northern, due nt 1
o'olook, was wreoked at Me Neil,
nine miles above hero as a result of a
washout. Tho 3ngin�� and cars plung
ei iuto u culvert, demolishing the en
gine and thb mail car, baggagu oar,
two day ousohea and one sleeper. The
ears left the track and rolled over on
their sides in four feet of water, but
110 lives wero lost nor wore any passenger-, badly injured. This is attributed
m Ilie fa-t that there wero not many
nn ihe train and it was running slow
at ih" time owing to a bad traok. Thn
mail clerk, Ora Davis, was seriously
braised, and Snglneet Mayhall and
Fireman O. M. Btaley were slightly
Injured. The Austin & North Western
road operated no trains today, duo to
