Sir Julius Ohas, Weitther, of the De
Beers company, out of ?S20,000, which
was advanced to carry on experiments
in the manufacture of diamonds, is a
genius; tliat he has really discovered
the secret of making diamonds, and
that be is now the victim of unjust
calumnies.
Lord .Vimstrong d( scribed a visit he
made to Lemeine's laboratory in
Paris. He said he put some of Le-
nuiine's powder into an empty crucible,
which was then placed in a furnace.
1/emoine did not interfere with the experiment When the crucible was removed it contained an agglomerated
mass of carbonized matter. Lord Arm
strong broke it open nnd found th.it it
contained numerous small diamonds.
He had an expert examine them.
Some Of them were found to be of
the purest water and were worth $5 a
Caret Others were less perfect. Lord
'Armstrong showed the diamonds thus
manufactured to bis interviewer.

Oliver hit the government  hard, producing convincing   authorities   showing    clearly    that    the    government
should have resigned    at    the    time'.
Lieut-Governor Dunsmulr reserved his1
assent to the bill.   By every means In

Premier McBride was attempting   to j
burke the question, but this shelving I
off of an admission on his part could ���
not be kept   up Indefinitely.    In    the

by stating that Ralph Smith had today (

emphatic in his denial of certain supposedly well authenticated rumors
about special trains, the stalling of
transcontlnentals In order to allow
him to reach interior points at a certain hour of the day, and other privileges which lie was credited with having received from that corporation.
A. E. McPhilllps, the Islands, followed the prime minister, (kiting a
number of authorities fii support of
the position taken by the government,
and accusing the leader of the opposition of insincercity in bringing forward a motion Implying a want of
confidence In the government. He
asserted that the province had no
authority to deal with the Immigration
question In denial of federal legislation, in his closing remarks, the
speake'r declared himself as being unalterably opposed to the immigration
of Asiatics, whether British subjects
or members of an alien race, irrespective of the friendliness or otherwise
of the particular nation to the mother
country.
The debate than adjourned.

A WHISTLER  STORY.
TVia Esgle ". .at Was M,-_e to Poss aa
a  Fighting Cock.
Apropos of something Whtetler once
told ;, cockfight story so vividly that
only a man with ;i sailor Instinct could
tell It as well, mimic it BO keenly and
enjoy it so thoroughly. It wjis ;j st,,rj
of a strange species of the American
cock, pictured to the smallest detail 8-i
beautifully that one forgot that it was
a stury.
Some American sailors were at a
cockfight in a seaport town in England when one "f them remarked to
the owner of the champion:
"We have -"t an American cock on
board thai can whip any bird here."
"Go fetch im on." said the champion.
"Chuck ini in and see.   If 'e licks one!
bird we 'ave plenty more to throw ln j
that can lick bany blawsted llameri-'
can bird you can fetch 'ere."
"All right.   Weil bring one," said tiic
sailors. When they got aboard they
rigged up nn American eagle. After
their own manner, they painted, trim .
nied. spliced and reeled tore anil aft
transforming the engie to a cock. Whcij
ready they went ashore to pit their
new American gamecock against all
England.
At the pit the sailors chucked In
their cock, which looked around for
Other surprises us be backed close to
the  Wall.
"Now, bring on your birds:" yelled
tbe sailors. A strutting rock was
thrown Into the pit and was another
surprise to the poor dismantled eagle
Ile backed up closer and closer to the
wall, wondering what would happen
next. Tbe cock walked three times
majestically around the circle, cuffing
at bis strange opponent, tbe eagle pitiably abashed and bedrabblcd, crouching lower and lower and looking
arounil nnd above him for nn explanation of what It all meant, while the
crowd were yelling madly for the
English lighter. The eagle made himself smaller and smaller, but at last,
finding that he could get back no further and thinking that something was
expected of him, and, as the cock
dashed at him again, stretched out his
long claws and took bis opponent by
the neck.
Here Whistler ended with nn imitation by motions of what the eagle did.
lie stretched out his arm, shaped his
hand like a claw, which by this time
looked like a real one, drew it to Ills
mouth and with one bite pulled off
tbe bead as he thought an eagle might
do It. Then he looked blandly about
the room, as the eagle had done, nt the
astonished crowd and said, "Now bring
on your other birds."���Otto Bncher lu

TOWNS WITH TROUBLES.
London's, trouble Is her Cog.
Tokyo's trouble is earthquakes. In
her worst 200,000 residents were killed.
The mistral is the trouble of Mar
Settles, an east wind that Increases the
city's death rate 50 per cent.
Calcutta's trouble ls cholera, and the
bubonic plague is the trouble of llom-
bay. Each city pays to her trouble an
annual tribute of 9,000 souls.
Bagdad's trouble ls the "Bagdad button," a sore that attacks practically
every resident and visitor, leaving a
button shaped permanent scar.
Madrid's trouble Is the solano, a summer wind from the southeast. It Is exceedingly hot and Is accompnnled by
blinding, choking clouds of dust, so
that notwithstanding a temperature of
105 or 110 degrees all windows must be
closed.���Philadelphia Bulletin.
The Science of Chamittry.
Chemistry' did not become a science
���In other words, chemistry proper did j
not exist���until the seventeenth century, and It was as late as the middle
of the eighteenth century liefore it began to amount to much. Tbe old ul-
chemy undoubtedly contained the
germs, or nt least the possibilities, of
the present day chemistry, but beyond
this the relationship between the modern science and the ancient delusion in
slight indeed. Still, it cannot be denied that It was ln the foolish search
for the "Philosopher's Stone" und tbe
"Elixir of Life" that men first bit upon
the   discoveries   which   were   destined
to develop Into the great science of today.-New York American.
The Sarcastic Cabby.
The   London  bobby   is  notorious   for, '.
ivei'grown  feet  and  bands.     Likewise,
the    London   cabby    Is   generally    accredited with never being al n loss for]
a reply.    One day a  bobby  lifted nobis band majestically to halt a cabby,'
liut the hitler crowded bis horse ahead. ;
"Didn't you see me .raise my   and?"
demanded the bobby.
"1 did see the sky darken a moment,
but my "orse was Bhyln' at your feet,"1
retorted the cabby aa he whipped up
and went on.���London Graphic.
The Danes and the Rav��jn.
Perhaps tbe Danes selected the raven
for  their standard out of  feelings of i
gratitude, for  before the Invention of
the mariner's compass they must have!
found him extremely useful.   The only
method  of determining whether land
was near was to let loose a raven.   If;
tbe bird saw land he sailed away for
ever; If he did not, he returned to the
Ship.���London Chronicle.

JOHNSTO
f��t_____-1
Hundreds of people visited our Store yesterday, some came tc look and see what was going on, others bought heavily. We had
the assurance of everyone that came through our doors that they never saw such Shoe Bargains in their lives. We were on the jump
all day and had to lock customers out at the closing hour of 6 p. m. Judging by yesterday's business we are assured of the MOST
SUCCESSFUL SHOE SALE EVER ATTEMPTED BY US.
We would again remind you that this is not the ordinary everyday Sale of a lot of odds and ends in shoes, but it is a bone-fide
Sale of our entire stock ���the "Warwick," the "Invictus," the "Walk-over," the "Empress," the "Cross," no matter what shoe you ask
for-EXPECT FACTORY PRICES. Why are we slashing our stock thus'.-Simply because our store .is undergoing a grand
remodeling and we are forced feo squeeze into smaller space while the work is going on. Spring goods, also, are creeping in which is
bothering us for space, as it will be six weeks yet before the alterations are completed.
Now,  About Prices!

some of the snaps.

Now, these are only a sample of what we can do for you in the shoe line. 0 ur store is turned upside down these days and is
scarcely recognizable as the regular BIG SHOE HOUSE ; but don't let that stop you-step in -take all the time you want inspecting
the many tables of bargains -THEN -IT'S 'UP TO YOU, to say whether you'll buy or not. THE VERDICT WILL NOT BE
HARD TO ARRIVE AT.

WORKERS  IN   SOUTH
ARE  HELD  (N  SLAVERY
VickBburg,    Miss..    Jan.    23.���The
right of the southern planter to hold
ignorant foreigners in slavery despite
human and statute laws hus been vindicated. The grjind jury in session
here had refused to Indict o. li. Crittenden, owner of Sunnys'.d ��� plantation
whom the federal government accused
with other planters, of vt-leting the
peonage  law.
The Inquisitors heard the evid no
i which the federal government hud ob-
i t.ained, listened to the statements of
��� the  victims of  the Mississippi slave
I laws and then voted "no true bill."
From   evidence   obtained   by     Miss
Mary   Grace  Quackcnbos,  a    woman
lawyer,  and other  federal investigators,   Sunnyslde   plantation   is worked
by "slaves" who are Indued by false
promises  to go  upon  the  soil  there.
Once they set foot within Its boundaries  they  are,  to' all practical   pur-
���poses,  prisoners.   If  they  attempt  to
leave debt charges are trumped    up
against them _nd they are arrested.
Then Hie beauty of Mississippi law
"protects" them.
They are taken before a country
justice of the peace, who probably has
"peons" on his own plantation, and
tried. j\one ever is acquitted, and
outrageous fines are entered against
them. Of course, they cannot pay

either a piano or organ is to be found
in every home or nearly so,    A good

buggy is generally  part of the equipment  and  so up to date are tins.1   in
many   cases   that  they    create    envy
when  visiting our city.    No city people live as well as do these tillers of
the soil, with their milk, cream, butter
and buttermilk, meat, fowl and eggs,
vegetables,  fruit and  fish  In  abundance.    No  people  are so independent
of the grocery,   No people are   more
social   and   glad   to  render  a   service
to the passer by and it would be bard
to find in those who have chosen the
rural life one wTio considers it lonely.
in  the  plowing,  seeding, haying and
harvesting  there  is   much to  occupy
the mind, as  well    as   the    physical
powei-s, and when the fall and winter
comes there are just the chores to do,
fuel  for the next  season  to provide,
visit friend and neighbors, sleep, eat,
drink and be merry.
Few   city   homes  can  compare     in
libraries, none are better posted    on
current   events and  the  person    who
thinks   he can   instruct  the   country
folk on any matter of public interest
will  fimJ  the  man on  the land well
educated.    This large, open and    free
life  with  its  real pleasure,  true  culture and  lasting satisfaction    is    far
preferable to the struggle, rush and
Jirtiflciallsm of the cities and we know
of no section under the blue vault of
heaven where it can be had to the full

BELLINGHAM   BANKS  ARE
NOW ON A CASH BASIS
Bellingham,   Jan.    .3.��� The    stable;
condition of the local banks and   the
confidence which the public repose in
them was well illustrated by the ease
and rapidity with which   cash    payments   were  resumed    and    clearing i
house certificates retired.    It is  now
ten  days  or  more  since  the    banks,
went on a cash basis.   The move was
accomplished without a flutter among
depositors, and almost before th ��� - m-
eivil   public   was  aware  of what    was
being done a large part of tli- certi'l
flcates thai  had been issued for the
purpose of protecting the reserves in
the hanks had  been   retired.    ThereI
are now, according to an estimate of I
one prominent banker, not more than1
$10,000    of  these    certificates    unre- j
deemed.    The banks  here have been |
ready for some time to take this step,
hut have to some extent awaited    a|
similar move by other banks.
Take notice that an application h is
been made to register M. W. Min-
thorne as the owner iu fee simple,
under a tax sale deed from the mayor
and treasurer of the city of New West-i
minster, to M. W, Minthorne, bearing
date the 10th day of February, A.D.'
1904, of all and singular that certain I
parcel or tract of land and premise-
situate, lying and being in the city
of New Westminster, in the province
of British Columbia, more particularly
known and described as; Subdivision
5 of block "A" of the middle aci\> ol
the south half of t'ne south half ol
lot 6, suburban block 12, map 506.
You and each of you an- r iiuired to
contest the claim of the tax purchaser
within forty-five days from the dat/e,
of the first publication of this notice,
otherwise I shall register M. W. Minthorne as owner thereof in fee. And
I hereby direct that publication of this
notice for thirty days in a daily news-!

McBRIDE'S  FOREKNOWLEDGE.
The   News-Advertiser  reports    Hon.
Mr, Bowser as reading in his speech
on the address a  telegram  from the I
secretary of  state  to  fne  lieutenant-1
governor in which he said, "Oan 1 rely on assurance that bill be reserved," J
and that the governor's prompt replyH
"that    assent    had    been    reserved," I
showed clearly that instructions    had'
been followed.
Now,  what  are    the    facts?    The
premier, on his own admission,    advised the lion. Mr. Scott, that resetra-
tion would  take place when the  bill
ted,    This Information  was given
by Hon. Mr, McBride in Ottawa prior
ta the passing of the bill and must
have  been   gi i en   w Ith  a   | uri ose  In
view, because, it so surprised the secretary of si it-1, thai   lie    v,Ired    the !
lieutenant-governor asking i; the   as
aurance could be relied    upon.    We
effect of the citation of this portion j
of the telegram  (because ll was not
read In full by Mr. Bowser)  goes to!
.show that bis honor had not received
any instructions with respect to    the I
proposed legislation, but thai   assent
wa3 withheld by the lieutenant-governor, if not on the advice of the' prom- j
ier,  at least  with   his    concurrence.
Every endeavor to place the responsibility on other shoulders only brings
it     back     with     added     force     upon
Premier McBride.

i.r for Prince Edward, Ontario. Mr.

Professor Edmund Burke, of the college of the City of New York, received ii letter from a press-clipping
agency. The letter Informed the professor that his patronage was desired,
and that as a sample of the work he
.would find enclosed a clipping from a
speech by President Roosevelt, in
which he had quoted the professor's
words. Professor Burke read the clipping nearly through 1 efore he realized
that the president was quoting from
Edmund Burke's speech on "Conciliation wiih the American colonies," delivered about In" years before Prof S-
sor Burke w;is born.���Dominion Press-

.N'ew York. Jan. 23.���The Herahi has
received the following cable des.iai.t-h j
. from Loudon:
There is much speculation here    a_
j to just what C. Arthur Pearson will do
1 with 'ihe Tim; s. From the very best
authority I have learned what will
happen to "The Thunderer" when he
I takes charge.    It   will    continue    to
. thunder,  but   it   won't thunder  in  tin i
old fashioned muzzle-loading   twelve-
: pounder style. It will thunder like a
breech-loading eleven-inch rilled gun.;
in  other   words,   the   price,   size ami1
j general appearance of The Times will
remain unchanged, but it will be Mr.
Pearson's   aim   to   make the   paper'
worth the six cents that    is    asked
for it.
For instance, the news will be
classified, and there will he headings
to the articles which will give ian Idea
of what the article is about. A column
or so of cable about a terrible theatre
disaster will not be headed simply
"United Stares." Paragraphs a foot
long will he abolished, and an article
will not be allowed to run over Int I
the next column for only itwo or three
lines. Also the present custom of
printing an article two or three columns long on some great pu. lie question and waiting six weeks or so before tue second article on the subject is published will be discontinui d.
This custom is presumably the result
of a belief that all Times readers
keep a file of the paper constantly ;it
hand and & summary of the contents
in their head.
The circulation of The Times now
is 55,000 copies daily, at six cents
each. Every copy is bought outright���
there are no returns, This circulation
is about twice as large as Mr. Pearson
supposed it was when he began negotiations to acquire the property.
