The attention of the world probably will now
be centered on the political situation in St. Petersburg, which appears to have reached a crisis. The
dissolution of parliament by imperial ukase resulting
in Goremykin surrendering the premiership, and the
succession of Stolypin as minister of the interior, to
the post, the mass of troops in the capitol city, arid
general belief that the dictatorship is inevitable, all
make it appear that an armed conflict is impending.

Marine  Disaster   Happens  in  Vancouver   Narrows  and
Eight Out  of Sixteen People on Board
a Tug are Drowned.
Bight lives were lost in a marine
accident that occurred in the Vancouver Narrows on Saturday afternoon.
The C. P. It. Steamer Princess Victoria, outward hound, going at full
speed against the Inrushing tide ran
down and cut 111 two the Union Steamship company's tug Chehall3 also outward bound.
Including the crew there were fourteen people on board the Chehalis,
and the six whose lives were saved
are unable to give much account of
the disaster, it all happened so suddenly, ln the awful scramble for life
they knew nothing of what was happening around them.
The accident occurred about a quarter of a mile off Brockton Point, and
was seen by people both on the wharf
and in Stanley Hark. The Princess I
Victoria struck the Chehalis on the
pert, stern and literally split her in
two. Those on the deck of the ill-
fated lug were seen to be hurled,
through tlie air as the vessel teli into
fragments and disappeared beneath
the surface of the water.
The Princess Victoria at once re-i
versed her engines and let down her
lifeboats. Lighthouse keeper Jones, of
Brockton Point saw the accident and
also put out with a boat immediately,
and other boats round joined in the
work of rescue. By this means six of
the fourteen passengers were saved,
but It was evident that the rest had
gone down beneath the deck of the:
sunken tug.
The list of the drowned and saved
ia as folows:
W. H. CRAWFORD (deckhand.)
Two Japanese firemen (names unknown.)
R.   N.  RICH.
The Princess Victoria put back to
the wharf with her boats, and having
made her report proceeded on her
Captain Hause of the Chehalis, who
was among the rescued, was In an
unconscious state, and was taken at
once to the City hospital, where he
still lies in a half dozed condition.
Last night he was unable to stand
the  strain of an interview.
C. A. Dean, Ihe engineer of the
Chehalis, was picked up out of the
boiling tide race by light keeper Jones
of Brockton Point. The engineer was
suffering greatly from exposure and
nervous shock. When the tug went
down he was carried completely under, and for one sickening moment the
whirling propellor blades scraped his
body. He struck for the surface, however, and Mr. Jones sighted him in
the nick of time. Mr. Jones carried
him to the lighthouse and gave him
every attention, and a few hours afterwards he was sufficiently recovered
to return to his home.
One of the most thrilling escapes
of all was that of J. O. Benwell. Mr.
Benwell, P. J. Chick and Mrs. R, H.
Bryce were having luncheon together
in the cabin when the collision occurred. Both Mr. Benwell and Mr.
Chick rushed together to the door, and
with hand clasped over hand vainly
tried to open it. The tug by this time
was sinking below the surface of the
Inlet, and the water was rushing into
the cabin. By singular good fortune,
Mr. Benwell got his head through a
window, and passing through thus
struck out and came to the surface.!
After struggling about In the water
for some time he was picked up by
S Goldman, who had joiaed in the
rescue work with a gasoline launch.
All had happened so suddenly that Mr.
Benwell could hardly realize his po-:
sltlon until he came ashore. He found
then that his little ten-year-old son
was among the missing. Mr. Benwell
was heart broken by the discovery,
and could only speak in a broken and I
agitated manner of the dreadful occurrence.
The Chehalis had been chartered fori
the purpose of taking a party north
to investigate the oyster beds at Blun-
<ln Harbor. Mr. Shallcross was negotiating a sale of the oyster beds to
a syndicate of English capitalists, and
he wus taking with him Dr. Hntton,
of the Rock Bay hospital, who was
an expert on oyster culture, and was
to examine the beds and report. R,
il. Bryce, purser of the Cassiar, is
vice-president of the British Columbia
Native Oyster Company, and P. J.
Chick, former purser of the Cassiar,
was secretary-treasurer for the same
company. Mr. Rich was travelling for
pleasure as a friend of Mr. Shallcross,
und Mr. Benwell and his son were also'
on a pleasure trip. Mrs. Bryce was
going as far as Lund and was to wait
there until the boat returned. Before
leaving, Mr. and Mrs. Bryce had dined
with some friends at North Vancouver,
and semed very happy over the prospect of the pleasure they would derive
from the trip before them. Indeed, it
seemed evident that all went out in
high spirits.
Neither of the boats in the collision went out exactly on stated time.
The Princess Victoria was an hour
behind her schedule, and the Chehalis
1 ad gone over to North Vancouver to
pick up Mr. and Mrs. Bryce, so that
before the accident occurred, she was
really traveling along the north shore
of the Inlet. When tho boats collided
they were about in mid-channel in the
narrows, and  were in the  full  force
of the tide rip, which may account, ln
some degree for the accident.
Captain Griffin's Story .
Seattle, July 22.���Captain T. O.
Griffin, master of the steamer Princess Victoria, stated upon the arlval
of the boat in port last, night from
Vancouver that the collision between
his vessel and the Chehalis was due
to negligence on the part of the mas-
tei of the sunken steamer.
"We were outbound at the time ot
the collision." said , Captain Griffin.
"There was a gasoline launch on the
port bow and the Chehalis was on
the starboard side. If I had gone to
port I would have run down the launch
and had I steered the ship to starboard I would have struck the Chehalis. Seeing the position I was in,
and as the vessel was bucking a
strong tide, I steered steadily ahead
and blew two whistles. The captain
of the Chehalis did not answer, and
when we got close to him his vessel
seemed to be carried against the bow
of the Princess Victoria, either by
steering or by the tide. I gave the I
signal for full speed astern, but the!
Chehalis struck us near the bow aud
with the tide and waves from our vessel rolled completely over.
"The order to lower a boat was
given and we picked up five men
floating in the water. Another person
was seen floating near the vessel and
a life belt was thrown to him. With
the six survivors on board the steamer returned to the dock and reported
tbe accident. I did not learn the]
names of the men we picked up or
those drowned. I understand eight
���lersons went down on the Chehalis.'
The collision occurred off Brockton
Point, in Vancouver Narrows. The
Chehalis was out of sight within 30
seconds after she hit us."

One of the young sea lions which
had been captured by the halibut
schooner Squid last week, and which
had   escaped   while   the   boal    was   al
the C. P. N. wharf, was recaptured
on Saturday morning by some fishermen, who found i: entangled In their
nels. The sea lion was lulled and the
skin brought ashore by the fishermen,
who were under the impression that
they had captured B fur seal. Joseph
I'.eichenbach secured the skin, and had
it on exhibition In his store last Saturday.

Did you ever see bluefish charge a
school of menhaden at sea? That is
something worth seeing. The bluetts!)
throw their lines forward until they almost surround the menhaden, and they
attack them think aud rear. Tbe men-
b idea fairly make the water boil in
their efforts to escape, while all around
the enemy is at them tearing relentlessly, mtu all" this Commotion comes
a great shark. It's a picnic for the
shark, a school of menhaden all herded
up for its hem-tit. It swims leisurely
Into the midst of them, opens Its mouth
and takes in half a dozen menhaden at
a gulie lt swims around and bites out
half a dozen more from the school. It
gorges   itself   without   effort.     But   the
menhaden are not nearly as much disturbed by the presence of the monster
swimming about among them as they
are by the charging bluefish. Theshnrk
takes half a dozen fish or more at a
bite, while the bluefish only biles a
piece out of a single fish, but there is
only one shark, while there may be
thousands of bluefish plunging and
tearing incessantly and killing and
maiming at every stroke. The shark's
a brute, but under such circumstances
the menhaden have less of fear tuau
they have of contempt for him.

George  Eliot and  "Romola."
George Eliot's first arrangement witli
tba publisher of "Koruola" was for no
less a sum than 10,000 guineas. "As
that Is so very large a figure," he said,
"I must run It through fifteen niuiiU-rs
of the Cornhlll." "So," she answered;
"lt must finish In twelve numbers or
the artistic effect of the story will be
lost. 1 quite understand the necessity
for its prolongation from u commercial
point of view, so we'll say 7,000
guineas instead of tlie 10,000." Aud
7,000 guineas was accordingly paid for
the copyright. Three thousand guineas
seem a large sum to give up for un
artistic scruple, but she did it.

Oddly Shaped   Spideri.
The most peculiar spiders in the
world, as well as the largest ones, inhabit the island of Sumatra. They are
of all conceivable forms and colors, ani
some of them spin threads almost ns
large and strong as lhe grocer's twine.
Some queerly shaped spiders have
square bodies poised on long red lego,
nnd others bave crooked green und yet-
low legs which support heart shaped
bodies. One of the very oddest of the
lot has a body that looks like that of
a young turtle, the "shell" having round
knobs and pear shaped projections all
over it.

Great   Britain*  Rainfall.
Rainfall is a condition which bas
much to do with our health. A wet district with a good deal of subsoil water,
making houses damp, is a locality ln
which rheumatism and consumption
are likely to prevail. Over England
aud Wales the average yearly rainfall
is about thirty-four Inches, in Scotland
it reaches forty-six inches und iu Ire-
laud about thirty-eight inches. Possibly the wettest parts of Britain are in
Cumberland, where the rainfall may
attain 100 inches per year. One inch of
rain on one acre of ground means a
hundred tons of water.���London Graphic.

Emerson was uot the Brat to use this

was published ln 18G0. In the first series of the "Orevllle Memoirs,'' under
date March 22, 1830, occurs the following passage:
"Then will come the question of a

first to oast and stamp wllh an Official

One of the "seven wonders of the ancient world" was the Pharos, or light
tower at Alexandria. If you have a
popular account of that great structure
handy, read it carefully and note that
you are informed that the tower could
be seen at a distance of from 100 to
150 miles. Let us see if this could possibly be true. The curvature of the
globe Is (i.OO inches to tho mile. This
being true, we find that an object 100
feet high can only be seen at a fraction over thirteen miles. Figuring on
the basis of nn earth curvature of even

the light tower In question must have
been over a mile ln height If visible

Spring added another to the score, and
One more was added by Johnston before time was ci'lled. The Victorian-
were unable to score during this quarter, and it was pretty evident that they
would make a very poor showing by
the time the game was over.
During the second quarter, the visiters made several attempts to score,
but owing to the fine work of Clute,
they only managed to score once.
Three goals were added to Xew Westminster's score before the gong sounded, and with the score at C to 1, half
time was called.
The Victorians went up in the air

getting to be very ragged. A couple
