if no other country does so, will, ,;'.
the approaching second Peace Conference al The Hague, raise the question of taking steps to provide for the
mainienaui-e of international peace.
This, Stead says, will he done in the
form of two propositions, as follows:
First: That each country participating in  the conference  appropriate a
sum of money to be used In the propagation of ihe idea of maintaining in-j
lernatJonal jieace
Second: That each country participating in the conference render obligatory the observance of Article Bight
of the act of ihe Peace Conference of
18991, .permitMr.?; a third power to tender mediation, without giving offense,
between two disputing powers and also that   the  participating  powers ex-1
tend the scope of Article Kight so as
to bind the signatories in case of a
declaration of war, not to begin hostilities for a fortnight, in which interim friendly powers would have the
right to intervene, in an al tempt lo
adjust tbe quarrel.
The local Conservative "push" announces that
it will endeavor to warm up the main body tomorrow, if the main body will come and be warmed.

Mclnnes'   Position.
There was an enthusiastic meeting
ii. Victoria, Monday night, to hear
Macdonahl and Mclnnes on ihe political issues. The latter defined his position in this way:
"I did not come from the Yukon to
he a member of the opposition in the
British Columbia house. I have been
a member of the opposition before; 1
came to be a member of the new government of British Columbia, and I intend to be in that government under
Premier -Vlaedonald."
��� Now look out for telegrams from the upper
} country telling of the enthusiasm of the electors
} and the able speeches of Messrs. McBride and
| Bowser. Wonder why their able speeches are never
delivered in this neighborhood!
Member For Delta Receives Vote of Confidence���"Whispering Willie" and J. D. Taylor Attempt to Disturb

Victoria. B. C. Jan. 8,���The appeal
in the famous Goldstream water case
was decided this morning in favor of
the city of Victoria, Chief Justice Hunter disjoining.
All over the province Liberals grow more confident and enthusiastic day by day. The flowing tide
is-with them, and victory is sure.
"Yes," said Mclnnes, "in order to take a portfolio in the new government of British Columbia, I
gave up a job at $12,000 a year; but you would not
catch a Tory giving up a job like that."
At the close of a three hour political
meeting held in South Westminster
last evening, where John Oliver, W.
McBride,   and   J.   D,  Taylor spoke,  a.
] vote of confidence in ihe member for
Delta  was  unanimously passed  by the
i audience, showing conclusively ihai
the leaning of ihe public towards Mr.

much confusion as possible. The
conduct of these two advocates of the
McBrlde rule was loudly resented by
ihe electors, who frequently requested
ilieiu to sit down and shut up.
Among     Other     things     concerning
which  Mr.  Taylor  was  anxious  to  be
Informed was the Pallet-son land deal,
which   has  caused   so   much   concern
io some of the Conservative speakers
of late.    Mr. Oliver informed him that
the  Mr. Patterson  bought  the land at
ar  auction  sale  which had been publicly   advertised,   and   thai   the   price
which was paid, $lu an acre, was not
such a very low price considering lln

Rev. J. S. Henderson was the leader,
while Rev. .Dr. Sippre.ll delivered an
eloquent and stirring address upon
"The responsibility of ihe Church of
Jesus Chris:  regarding Education."
Mr. Sipprell in his opening remarks
slated his intention to deal with the
subject in its wide and general aspect.
Tie church was undoubtedly responsible regarding education, Education,
the sneaker said, was that process
ihai would bring out of a man all the
good and noble. Education was the
proper development of man, so that
he could have a broad and Intelligent
knowledge of God, for to know God
was the sum ami end of all true knowledge. The power to know was the
greatest power with which man was
endowed, and the point of view of the
would-be learner was most Important.

Catherine  Bailt  the Palace.
The Tetrovsky palace is a charming
monument to the more picturesque side
of Catherine the Great's character.   It
was her villa without the walls of Moscow, where she could live at her ease,
surrounded    by    her    intimates,    the
Apraxins, the Volkonskys, the Golitsins,
! the  Razumovs.     She  would have  n��
soldiers to guard her.   She preferred to
rest under the protection of ter owi
i people, and the people came crowding
j about the palace, saying:    "Make no
, noise!   Do not disturb our little moth-
'. er!"   She loved the fields aud woods of
Petrovsky. as well she might.   It was
��� In this neighborhood that she herself
awaited the approach of her coronation,
staying in Count Uazumov's wonderful
villa, which so astonished Lord Herbert
and William  Cox  in  1778,    She had
the palace built to commemorate the
Russian victories over the Turks auJ
intrusted the task to a native architect
who knew how to adapt Gothic lines to
Russian taste and to combine splendor
, with  comfort.     The  red   walls,   with
I their white stone  facings  and round
j towers,  seen  among the trees,  give a
delightful Imoression of elegant seclu
sion, since cutnerine-s day all the em.
perors of Russia have awaited the day
of the triumphal entry in tbe Petrovsky

The Nanalmo Free Press doles out
comfort to its afflicted readers in the
following: "Those who have not caught
la grippe yet will be pleased to hear
from a local physician that the cold
snap has frozen up most of the la
grippe genus. As scon as the thaw
sets in, however, he says la grippe
will be more prevalent, but not so
virulent as formerly."

was only about fifteen inches deep. As
no one has been reported as missing
to the police, the general impression
i- that some lad went away from the
ice after skating, and forgot his coat.
Messrs. Mayers and Preston, of the
Western Fuel Co., have turned their
handsome tug, the Dauntless, into a
coal barge. They found it impossible
to bring scows up the river at the pre-1
sent juncture on account of the ice.
They want coal for the supplying of
their patrons and as the Dauntless is
heavy and strong they have fixed it up
with ice guards and are carrying about
a hundred tons at a time from Nanai-'
mo. The Dauntless arrived in port
on Monday night, with the first load
and if the ice does not get too thick
will make another trip today. The,
hull of the vessel bears a few marks
where the ice struck it. behind the Ice
guards. The members of the firm

who informed the applicant that he
was just out of the commodity, and
sent him over to Dingle & Galbraith's

Fierce Sea  Monster.

headed shark? This fish is distinguished by the singular shape of
its bead, having the appearance of
the head of a hammer. The eves

the fish is irritated the colors of the
iris are like a flame. The raosl common Bpeciee arc long and slender in
body, which is gray, and the head is
black. It is usually about i leven or
twelve feet long an.! weighs up to
oOO pounds. It is bold and greedy
for blood and is often found around
ships even near the con-:.
It has not the strength of an ordinary shark, but is more ferocious
and can strike with as much force.
The sailors frequently have hairbreadth c-scay.es from this dangerous
creature of the seas.

Perpetual   Motion.

and then tries to persuade himself
and the public that he has discovered
perpetual motion. Now. perpetual
motion means the motion of a machine or a device that would continue forever or until it wore out
without the aid of any force external to itself. A machine of this
kind is an impossibility. Friction
and the resistance of the air are con-
stantlv opposing the action of machinery, and as matter, on account
of what is called inertia, cannot gen-
erate power that will make up for
this loss every machine must in time
come to rest, unless some external
force, such as ���wind, water or steam,
keeps acting on it. Perpetual motion is, therefore, impossible,���Chicago News.
To Make a White Flower Red.
Changing aj|hite flower into a
red one is a pi rformance suitable
for the garden or the drawing room.
The dry petals of a white rose or
any other flower must be first delicately and as far as possible uniformly sprinkled with aniline crystals. The rose should be shaken so
as to leave as little as possible visible. What there is will be only
trilling specks. By bringing to play
on it a spray of eau de cologne or
other spirit from a vaporizer���those
connected with a finger ring enable
the performance to be most mysteriously accomplished���the delicate
white petals can be promptly suffused with a rich crimson blush.

The population of the earth at the
death of the Emperor Augustus was
estimated at 60,000,000. Today it is
calculated that this globe has a popu-,
latlon of 1,603,150,000. Out of this vast!
number of more than n billion and a
half of human beings it is asserted that
all but mi Infinitesimal fraction of 1

There are seven great religions In tbe I
world. The Christian religion has the
greatest number of adherents, ."ijH.ooo,-
000. of this number 350,000,000 are
Catholics and 213,000,000 Protestants.
These two great divisions are sutidlvid-
ed into innumerable sects differing
from one another ou some point of
dogma or church government. Next in
importance comes the worship of ancestors aixl Confucianism, whose followers are 283,000,000 In numtier. Thin
belief Is confined almost exclusively to
tbe Chinese and Japanese. In India
there are 223,000,000 Brahmans. This
form of religion has decreased somewhat during r:>cent vers, owing perhaps to the continual ravages of plague
and famine in that country. But It still
holds the third place among the seven
great religions. Brahmanism Is hard
pressed, however, by the faith of Islam. There are 222.000,000 of these followers of the doctrines of Mohammed.
The fifth on the list are the Polythelsts,
the believers in many gods, who number 130.000.0on. The devotees of Buddha come next, 107,000,000 strong.
These, too, have their stronghold iu
India. The smallest of the seven grent
religions of the world is Taoism, with
44,000,000 adherents in the Chinese empire ind In Tibet.
The next greatest religion, in point
of numbers, to Taoism is the belief of
Japan, Shintoism. This has but 18,-
000,000 believers. The Jewish faith
now counts luit half that number of
adherents. But, unlike the other great
religions, the followers of the teachings
of Moses are not centered in any particular country, but are scattered all
about the world. Compared with the
foregoing, the religions of the Parsees,
while one of the most beautiful theoretically, has about the smallest following of any distinct belief in tbe
world, 150,000. This sect lias its home
in India and is best known to tho outside world by its curious burial cyis-
toms. the famed "towers of silence."

He's not an awkward schoolboy,

No; he's a man of forty
And several times a dad.
But he Is dazed and tongue tied,
His words all out of reach
And for the first time trylns
To make a public speech.
It seemed a simple matter
For him to do the part
When he was In hla study
And learning It by heart.
Now, meeting friends and neighbors
In public face to face,
He wishes that an earthquake
Would swallow up the place.
He stammers,  and ho stutters;
He fumbles at his coat;
A lump much like a football
Arises In his throat;
His knees begin to wabble;
His voice begins to fail.
He'd rather take a licklns
Or forty days in Jail.
Though large nnd fat and husky
And feeling tit to right.
He cannot face the music
And In it take delight.
