ing following the disaster of the Jena
yesterday. Crowds are gathered a1
the arsenal and dock, waiting the announcement of the names of the dead.
Hundreds of dc snatches asking for details of the disaster have reached naval  headquarters  here.
The minister of marine, upon his
arrival here, consulted with the port
admiral, after which lie proceeded to
the  scene  of the disacter.
The maritime prelect has drawn
attention to an act of conspicuous
heroism performed by five sailors of
various ships who responded to his
call for volunteers to open the sluices
i.i the dry dock. Those men continued their vain efforts undeterred by the
death   of   iheir    leader,   Midshipman
cussed at  the  board  Of trade  meeting
lasi evening, when. In the course of
a   lengthy   discussion,   it   was  pointed
oul thai ihere was a probability thai
llu;   freight    service   wilb   the   capita!
city migbi be discontinued during the
winter months, as well as the passenger traffic. A communication from
the Victoria board of trade bad been
received, asking New Westminster to
assist in the effort they wero making
inwards   obtaining   heller .sei vice.
E. Goulet, Btatlon agent for the C.
P. It., in ihis city, remarked thai his
com] any had no available lii.ai for
passenger service during the winter
time, but in Bummer, the R. P. Rlth'e!
v as put on the run.
After a lengthy debate, in the course
of which the several transporta >���
companies wire handed valuable advice gratis by many merchants. 11
was finally decided thai the better
plan was for the Victoria board of
trade to take some action, as tha.
city was really the greater sufferer
as a resull of the present conditions,
as all the local merchants were purchasing iheir goods in Vancouver, on
account of the difficulties of obtaining supplies from Victoria within a
reasonable lime. The question will
also he dealt with later on in th i I ea-
son. and any suggestions which the
Victoria board may offer on the matter will be duly considered.

THURSDAY,   MARCH   14,   1907.
We take advantage m  the restful
ami grateful pause, in ihe strenuous,
tirade  of  the    Columbian    directed
against lhe Dominion government, Ulo
member for this city, and the -New
Westminster fishery delegation, to
gently call our jjoaious contemporary's
attention to the fuel, before ii shall
resume Its congenial task that it lias
been sadly wasting its breath by
"barking up ihe  wrong tree."
Assuming thai  Ihere is some ground
for   being   dissatisfied    because    every
point was imi won by our delegation
iii the eontroversj with the cannery
combine deputation    al    Ottawa, be-
lause a minor poinl or two was scored
by the latter In the decision announced   by   the   Minister   of   .Marine   and
fisheries���it   is well,  if  we  are    to
Btorm   and   scold   ami   denounce  and
protest,   and   consider  the   taking of
punitive and remedial measures, that
we should Qrst clear our minds of all
can!   and   hypocrisy   and   political   or
Other bias, and inquire honestly who
is  primarily  to blame  for the efforts
of the cannery combine and trap own-
ers to discriminate against the river
fishermen, making such headway that
they culminated In the astounding de-1
lnands   which have just   been  turned
down almost  i���  their entirety  by ibe
Minister  of   Marine  and   Fisheries al
If we are honest in this inquiry, we
shall be forced io confess thai the
man who ol ail others is primarily
responsible for encouraging and ab- '
hilling the canners in making such
demands Is none other I han Mr. Babcock, the Provincial Government's
Fishery Commissioner, who has constituted himself ever since his ap-
pointment, the champion of imps and
of restricting and curtailing the river
fishing, The very d* mauds made bj
the canners, for the closing of the
Fraser river to fishing above the
bridge and the prohibiting of fishing
altogether next yjar, he specifically
recommend.^; if he bad been the
l'a''-l avail! coureur and organizer of
tn.e trap owners and canners to undermine ami destroy the independent ri-
ver fishermen's Interests, he could
ni), have gone aboul thai work more
zealously and effectually. By virtue
of the authoritative and honorable
position which he occupied���and still
occupies���as the highly paid fishery
experl of the Provincial Government,
hi was almost necessarily given a
seat on the Dominion Fisheries' Commission, and his efforts were all directed in thai capacity to bringing
the majority of the commission (those
of them that needed persuasion) to
Ids way of thinking.
Thus fortified, with the Dominion
Fisheries Commission and the Provincial Fishery Commission behind them
and upholding theii- hands, and putting arguments iu their mouths and
Official authority lo back iheir arguments, iho deputation of the cannery
i en; duo an 1 trap m\ aers wenl lo Ottawa and presented their demands;
and were i onfronted by a delegn I in
of three from ihis city with nothing
:o support them bui the justice of
iheir cause, and a loyal determination
to win recognition of lhe same. Thai
they did win nearly everything in
Face of all lhe odds, is greatly to their
'"'���Id and thai of the authority to
whic a ihi v appealed. If there is tiny
denuni i.i ion ami retribution due, it
is owing in full measure to ihe Provincial fishery official aforesaid,
j whose solo raison d'etre appears to
(have been aashitlng ihe cannery combine nnd undermining the interests of
ihe river fishermen.

Tculay hardwood trees, such as tli
oak, walnut and usb, have been made
i more valuable by the invention of ve

the logs to be sliced up into layers of.

this process was all by band and wa
a slow and arduous undertaking.
Tha advantages of veneered wool
are that It will not crack, swell nor
warp In the changes from hot to cold
weather, and In the case of doors, for
Instance, It makes them lighter an 1
more easily handled.
For our finest pieces of furniture

The cabinet workers then apply
these slices to the articles of furniture, gluing them on with the grain

The VnllRlrr of Ihe Runt.
Omar Khayyam was a famous Persian poet and mathematician in the
twelfth century, who was employed by
the Sultan Malik Shah in revising the
astronomical tables and in making a
thorough reform of tbe calendar. He is ,
Melier known to us as the writer of
some 500 epigrams in verses of four
lines which are unsurpassed In their
pure died ion, fine wit mid crushing sn ]
tire. These clever and fascinating
quatrains were put Into Knglish by
Edward'Fitzgerald, who in 1859 pub
lishi'cl 'The Rubalyat of Omar," a rendering marked by exquisite melodiousness and by poetic insight and power.
Omar has been called the Voltaire of
the east because of his brilliant nnd
pungent wit. while bis depth of tenderness and profound thought, and his denunciation of the fate which dooms to
decay and death what is best and most
beautiful In the world reveals much
that reminds one of Byron, Swinburne
and sometimes Schopenhauer,
ConiolK   by   Ihe   Pennyworth.
It. may not be generally known that
a pennyworth of British consols eau
be purchased. Consols are not like
Shanes, which nre Invariably of a pertain denomination��� ��1, fo, ��10, and so
on���but can be divided up to any extent. It consequently happens that
very small amounts of this lordly sto'k
are bought to make up rv nd sums, but
no one can be registered at the Hank
of England as a holder unless he has
acquired enough to bring him iu four
pence a year ia dividends, and less
than ��1 will purchase a sufficient
amount for that purpose.���London

Crystal Sky  Columns.
Aii explanation of a curious optical
phenomenon, sometimes witnessed on
frosty nights, which Is called tbe"pse��-
do aurora."   Is  offered   by   a  scientist
The phenomenon takes the Cora ot
beautiful columns of silvery light
standing over electric arc lamps and
other bright lights and sometimes appearing almosl to reach the iienith.
The scientist says that sometimes the
evening star has a bright shaft below
as well as above, while the rising moon
stands In a broad column of light.
These appearances are duo to floating
frost crystals which keep their reflect- '.
Ing faces horizontal. On examination
bo found that the crystals concerned ,
In the exhibition wore thin six sided
plates of |ce, never more than one millimeter in diameter. When the wind
blows, these little piales are upset, imi.!
the columns of light caused by refiec-1
tlon from their Blirfaces disappear.

Considering that the whole of nncieut
literature was confined Vo manuscript,
lt is wom^rful tliat so much of lt has
come down to us. The preservation pf
some old writings has been almost
miraculous, To a single copy preserved In a monastery of Westphalia, for
Instance, do we owe all that we have
of Tacitus. This ls the more remarkable since thj emperor, of that name
hnd copies" of the" works"of his" distinguished ancestor placed In all the Imperial libraries and caused ten copies
of tliPin to be transcribed yearly. Still,
only the one copy has been found tn
modern times,
A pnpe of the second decade of l.lvy,
we nre told, was discovered by a man
of letters on a battledoor while he was
amusing himself In the country. He
rushed up to town, but he was too late,
for the battledoor maker "had used up
all his parchment the week before."
Two manuscripts of Cicero on "Glory"
were presented to Petrarch, who lent
tbem to an old preceptor. This latter
gent Ionian, being pressed by want,
pawned them and died without revealing the name of the pawnbroker, Two
centuries afterward  they   were  men
tinned In a catalogue of books be
queathed to a convent, bul could not
be found. It Is supposed that Petrus
Aloyoulus. the physician to the Institution, appropriated ihem and, having
transposed some of the thoughts t*
his own writings, destroyed the originals.
The original Magna Chnrta of England has certain mutilations, presuma
lily from a pair of shears. It Is said
that Sir Richard Cotton, calling one
day at Ids tailor's, discovered thai that
man was holding in his hand ready to
cut up for a pattern a copy of the
great Magna Charta, with ali ite appendages and seals.

Most courtly and gallant of li.sh Is
the three spitted stickleback, the lie-
loved "tiddler" of British youth. These
little lisb derive their name from the
sharp spines with which they are
armed and which they enn raise or depress tit will.
The female stickle'mck Is the model
wife of a mode' hatband. She does
not leave ber e s to chance, but establishes a nesl. or nursery for their
reception, over which h?r Irritated little husband keeps n jealous guard.
Woe betide the rival "tiddler" whu
rashly approaches too closely the domicile of his neighbor during the breed'
lng season. With all Ills spines fixed
for action the warlike parent steams
jut to offer him battle.
The contest that ensues Is desperate,
the combatants darting at each other
with lightning rapidity, biting and
Striking at each other with their spines,
a well directed cut from which weapon of offense will often rip up the
body of the adversary, sending him to
the bottom.
But most remarkable of all is the
decoration which nature bestows upon
the victor. The brilliant green of his
mail becomes tinged with gold, while
his red throat blushes to a deeper hue
than ever.
On the other baud, his vanquished
assailant, should he be fortunate
enough to escape with his life from Ihe
battle, loses bis brilliant and martial
uniform of red. green and gold and retires to some obscure corner of his native pond, attired in a humble civilian
uniform of sober and sorrowful gray.���
