Nanaimo. B. C. Dec 22.���A severe
explosion occurred at the Hamilton
Powder company's works, Northfield,
three miles from this place, at 5:10
o'clock this morning, the shock boing
most severe. Only one of the three
buildings was destroyed, and as far a
can be learned no lives were lost, the
watchman, the only man in the neighborhood, escaping without serious injury. The damage has not been ascer-
ta;ned.
Much alarm was manifested when
the explosion took piace, many people
hurriedly dressing under the impression that an earthquake had struck
sland. A few broken windows
constitute the total damage done in

" I"iie cause of the    explosion    will j

Mr. Maynard.    "As if often  the    way

Investigations following a rumor to
the effect that officers of the city
police force had b��9en seen drinking
in one of the city hotels while they
were on duty have led to the discovery tbat policemen in uniform have
been in the habit of frequenting public bars, but the guilty partli a are not
numbered among the locals, Vancouver officers being the liquor imbiber*.
It appears that some of the men who
have been coming over here in charge,
of prisoners for the provincial jail, or
patients for the asylum, have enjoyed
their brief absence from headquarter!
in a manm r not calculated to reflect
credit on the force, and their presence
in the hotels has ieen noticed by
peopl who were not sufficiently acquainted with the local officers to
realize that the drinking men did noi
bi long to the city force.
The  matter  will  in  all  probability
bi   reported to the Vancouver po.ice

SHELLMOUTH MISSION.
Like into the widows son of old. on
svhom the propbel breathed with reviving power, so in Inverse ratio must
the editor of the Columbian have
come within inhaling distance of ,b. ���
premier's breath on Friday night, and
it still affected him when b,~ gave his
readers thai Shellmouth tridge comparison with Hie Mission bridge case.'
The Shellmouth bridge is an Inter-
provi ti ridge cr s.sing  I te Assini-
boine river rtgln on the boundary of
Assiniboia and Manitoba and the Dom
inion governmenl  agtead    with    the
province ol Manitoba while Assiniboia
was yet a territory under the control
of the federal governmenl  to jointly
build  iii..i   b i.lge and  ! eep b  In re- !

Now tbe two cases are nol analogous
The Dominion   go rernm nl    rec 11 ed
from th" crown coiony or' Biiti h Columbia  the  twenty  mile railway  beit;
for a specific purpose i.e.  to twoupj
the Federal treasury for the cost ofl
building the railway    through    fromj
Port Moody to Golden to complete the j
national highway, the Canadian Pact-
fie railway  and an.v   revenues .arising j
therefrom must of necessity go to reduce  the   landed  debt of the  Dominion.   No application has aa yet been
made  for  the  Dominion..^  Uiild    or
.assist in  building a  tra JEW bridgt at
Mission  because the  people up there
are better posted than the Columbian
and do not consider the Dominion government under any oUligation to ren-

McBrlde    sarcastically    promises    to

lumbia.    Sir Wilfrid Laurier's experience of McBride In Ottawa  was not
mh as to Induce the Canadian Prem-
; ier to be .seen In his company   anywhere,   mucj;   less   to- allow him to
share the great oration which awaits
Sir Wilfrid whenever and wherever he

make "receptions to order" to assure
Sir Wilfrid that  he is ever welcome
in this western  province,    lii- -,-,-i"-:-

The dream the Columbian aad reminds one of an incideauin our provincial legislative council in early
days when a member from this city,
suffering from the effeC^ of night
sessions woJTe up from a naju iu Uie
caucus room and enquired the matter
then under discussion, and was told
that one of the island numbers want-
ed a wharf in his copsfnuency to
which he replied, "All r'ght, all riyht.
If ,,<��� gists a wharf in his constituency
I want one eln mine," and In 'b. query
as to where he woul I put if
"Never mind we will find a place for
It," and got his d mand siti.-fi^l. Now
the Columbian ..'inks that if Che Dominion governmenl nre giving'out any |
bridges, jt should ship a few out to
British Columbia, but if they were so
recfkless, you would hear lhe war

The terrible suffering b. t'iie destitute and hungry artisans and laborers
in Sunderland, England, Is now grim,
gaunt and acute, and it is heartrending to read the reports, especially at
this festivo season- Those who have
work are helping those who have
none, and it is touching to read of
school children taking Heir hungry
class mates home to share half their
dinner. New Westminster would make
a good investment by Immediately
cabling some assistance and be the
first of many Canadian cities which
woiiild immediately follow ��� In r example. We would spend n much more
merry Christmas if we rendered immediate help to our fellows in this
their time of dire need. Without waiting for red tape, Bon.edT.fe, preferably

FOR some time you have been planning to get hold of a nice little farm-something not to big, and conveniently near town.
Such a place as you could live on during the summer, for instance, and which would yield you all the farm and dairy supplies you would need and pay for itself besides.   We have just such a place for sale.   It has been placed in our hands exclusively and must be sold within the next week or two.
SITUATION-The property consists of parts of Lot 132, Group 2, New Westminster District, containing 22 acres. The situation is
charming; on the South bank of the Fraser River, about 5 miles from the city, on the new river road to Ladner.
IMPROVEMENTS-Of the 22 acres, 9 are thoroughly cleared and under cultivation, The land is level and the soil is of that rich
nature which has made the Delta of the Fraser famous for its agricultural products. Nine acres have been thoroughly
cleared and placed under cultivation and the whole tract, besides being benefited by the Delta dyke, has been thoroughly
ditched and drained.
BUILDINGS -The improvements include a fine, well built and well finished residence, with six
$2,200.   There are also the usual farm out buildings, including two chicken houses.
living rooms, etc.    Easily worth
L
WATER FRONTAGE-The water frontage extends for a distance of 480 feet, and consists of one ef the most valuable assets- for
at this point there is splendid deep water, while the proximity of the Great Northern Railway Co.'s new line to Blaine offers
additional shipping facilities, so that the frontage alone, for mill, cannery or other manufacturing purposes should easily be
worth the price now being asked for the whole.   Upon the frontage also is situated a GOOD WHARF with \a.rvo W A RF
HOUSE and a large SCOW HOUSE also is thrown into the bargain. K
THE PRICE The price is only $5,000, and the cash payment required is only $2,500. or even $2,000 'if other considerations are
satisfactory: balance to be arranged as desired. This is an opportunity which should not be allowed to go without vour investigation.

EOOKS  AND   BINDINGS.
A Critic's Compari._ori oi" the Modern
With ths Ancient.
"One of the strangest things about
the earlj pr utlng is the fact that the
paper and binding were >���> much bet-
ter than we have nowadays," said a St
i. e iis collector.
"l have books mi my shelves printed
ami   bound   b.v presumably   reputable
Arms, and yet after sis or eight years
of careful use the paper is coming to
l le :es and the bindings are gonp, while
side by side with them are books :.m>
years  old   with  paper iutacl   and   the
. bindings as good as new,   The difference is of course in  honesty of material  and   work.    In  the old  days  a
hide'   was   allowed   to   lie  in   the   tanner's   vats   for a   year   before  it   was
tlie.iisht fit for use.    Taper was hand-
! made of  real  linen  rags.    Now   book
' leather  Is  ready   two  or  three   weeks
, after the calf has  been skinned.    Pa- '
per is machine made of heaven know*!
what.   Of course ttiere may be honestly made paper and strong binding now,
as there were then,  but a couple of
hundred years ago good binding and pa-
( per were the rule.    Now they are the;
rare, also fhe costly, exceptions,    [t is'
true that the high temperatures of the
| houses, the erases and coal fumes may j
| have  something  t'> do  with   impairing
leather   bindings,   for.   as   everybody
j knows, a stoul eioth or canvas binding!
Is better than the leather now used.
The same Influences may also damage
the paper,  but still  the fact remains
that neither the temperature nor the
gases affect the work of the old print-
ers, so the difference, after all, is one
of quality."���St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

Peculiar   Combination   of   Events    Related  by  Andrew   Lang.
As to "the long arm of coincidence,"
it may be as long as is nei essary.
Nothing is Impossible to coincidence.
Au Instance of my own experience,
said Andrew Lang, convinces me of
this fact. 1 had been reading a foolish
book. "Out of the Hurly Burly," ami
some of the rhymes ran in my head.
'1 hey began:
Bury Bartholomew oat In th   w '"Is
In a beautiful h'.Io In .the ground.
hi the afternoon 1 drove with a party of friends, and we took the refresh
ment of tea at a house where there
were several .ither guests, all unknown
to me even by name. As two of these
Ihed at a place on our homeward
route, they accompanied us In our vehicle. As we passed a wood on a hillside one of these anonymous strangers
said to me, "This is the burial place of
the Murrays of Glendhubreac." I ab
seutly and automatically replied:
I: iry Bartholomew out In the woods
In a beautiful hole In the groin, I
A kind ..f chill blight settled on the
party,   though   oue  of   them   ta  rt'ully |
asked me what poet I was quoting.
When we had set down our two
strangers nt their own home I was
asked whether I knew the name of tb*
gentleman on whom I had expended
my poetical quotation? Of course I did
not know, and of course hi.s surname
was Bartholomew, while, as he seemed
in bad health, my citation bad an air
of brutal appropriateness. "Thus does
fortune banter us," for Bartholomew
Is a most unusual name In Scotland.
