Mr. Carnegie's "Mutual Proie-cuon."
         ''.. \ ������*���,_.
Mr. Carnegie has issued through
the Peace Society, of which organisation he is president, a statement outlining what he considers
to be the most practicable step
for the limitation of naval expari-
sion in the interests of the world's
peace.
Mr. Carnegie suggests that
Great Britain and tne United
States should agree, the latter to
defend the British possessions ih
the Atlantic, including the islands in the south, and the latter
to protect the American coast on
the Pacific, including Hawaii and
the Philippines.
The agreement would terminate at the ond of five years upon
notice being given by either
party.

Sturgeon Falls, Ont., May7~-It
i-S reported that Chicago capital-
The possibility of a coastwise
lumber trade developing between
British Columbia and California
is suggested by the unusual charter of the American barquentine
James Johnson. Upon arriving
at Port Townsenrl recently from
Callao, Peru, captain carl Jensen
of the James Johnson received
an order to proceed to Milltown,
B.C., to load a cargo of lumber
for San Francisco or San Pedro.
The introduction of British Columbia into a trade that has for
years been held by Puget Sound,
Gray's Harbor and Oregon ports,
is deemed possible in the charter
of the barquentine. In shipping
circles the cnarter is known as a
foreign coastwise voyage, and as
far as the freighting of lumber is
concerned, this arrangement establishes a precedent, according
to the oldest local shipping authorities.
Under the present tariff restrictions the sale of British Columbia
lumber in California is apparently
impracticable, as an entry duty
of $2 a thousand is imposed. With
the poor demand for lumber and
the low prices, news of this charter was received with much surprise in shipping circles.
Considering the amount of
work that an assayer would have
had in 'the last two seasons it has
been a matter of surprise that no
assayer should have located in
this district before now. At present it is the custom to send
samples to the coast and have returns wired back, bringing the
expense up to a point greater
than would be the high prices an
assayer would have to charge.
Returns are rarely received in
less than two weeks and in some
cases much longer.
The passenger and freight tar-
riff of the Hudson's Bay Co.'s
river service have been received
at the local office and show a few
changes from the published rates
of last year. The passenger rate
down the river has been increased by $7.50, making it the same
as that up river, $17.50. Freight
lates continue the same with the
exception of the 20 per cent rebate allowed to shippers of 15
tons or over, which has been discontinued. Another freight class
has been added, which includes
gunpowder and high explosives,
���taW-tiff a rate of $75 ner ton
The extensive alterations to the
Omineca Hotel which have been
going on during the last few
weeks are now completed. The
hotel has been enlarged by the
addition of fifteen rooms, a commercial sample room, barber snop
and bath room supplied with hot
and cold water, etc. Everything
is arranged in a strictly up-to-date
manner, and every provision
made for the comfort of guests.
Numerous alterations and improvements have been made in
the New Telkwa Hotel at Telkwa.
The dining room has been enlarged, another sitting room and
a bath room added, and the
building renovated throughout.
The hotel is under the management of L. Mulvany, which is
ample assurance that the traveler's stay shall be attended with
much comfort and pleasure.
Things You cannot Do,
You can't stand for five minutes
without moving if you are blindfolded.
You can't stand at the side of a room
with both your feet lengthwise touching the wainscoting.
You can't get out of a chair without
bending your body forward, or putting
your feet under it; that is, if you are
sitting squarely on the chair, and not
on the edge of it.
You can't break a match if the match
is laid across the nail of the middle
finger of either hand, and passed under
the first and third fiingcrs of that hand,
despit of its seeming so easy at first
sight.
Ske<&a Philosophy.
We may not give a man credit
for much, who believes in nothing',
but we can be charitable enough
to give .him credit for living up
to what he believes in.
Exchanging the word 'want'
for the word 'need' has done more
to make me a rich man than all
my labor.
What I at one time thought, was
the greatest punishment for me
to learn, has proved to be my
greatest blessing and the foundation of the small measure of success I have met with, and that is
��� 'work^'
Wilt thou know the ways of the
world ? Then go thou out from
thy kjndred and thy father's
house, and be thou alone amongst
strangers, and verily thou shalt
know. But beware lest thou
comest to believe that selfishness
is the motive power of all action.
Nothing but liying out your
convictions will ever qualify you
for teaching them.
You may be proud, be rich, be
tall, but after all, in moral stature very small.
I am no occulist, yet I declare
you to be color blind in your moral
vision if you call any kind of a
lie a white lie.
Sarcasm and wit are twins, and
so much alike that at times even
the parents cannot tell which is
which.
It is too bad that your neighbor
doesn't come up to your standard,
and your neighbor's neighbor
doesn't come up to his.
The grasping meanness of the
wise may have something to do
with the proverbial parting of the
proverbial'parting of the fool and
his money.'
Querentibus.
In Italy time is reckoned on
the twenty-four hour system.
Thus, 3 o'clock in the afternoon
is there designated as 15 o'clock.
Midnight is 24 o'clock. The good
sense of this plan should commend its use by all enlightened
nations. ���Ex,

A Vision of Dreadnoughts.
"What do you suppose will happen,"
said the middle-aged man, "if this goes
bn much longer?" He pointed in consternation at a newspaper, full of facts
and figures about the naval forces of
England and other great powers, and
added: "I mean this building of Dreadnoughts."
"No one can blame the government,"
said the youth, as though he were willing to let them off easily, "for doing
its duty and making our navy, for defensive purposes, the most effective in
the world."
"Who's blaming the government?"
said the other. "Certainly, not I. On
the contrary, no expense of money and
energy seems to me too great for, our
security. All I ask iS: What will happen and how will it all end?"
"I am not a prophet," said the yduth,
in a discouraging manner.
But the elder man had rested his
head on the back of a comfortable chair,
and was now beginning to see visions.
"I can picture the seas of the future, "he went on, "alive with multi-
tndes of Dreadnoughts, circling from
end to end, the entire coast of the British Isles.
"On these vessels I see an army of
sailors. On land I see another army of
of men, building more Dreadnoughts.
I see also a vaster army of soldiers,
Territorial and Regular.
"We are about the year 1960: roughly, half a century from today. The
other nations with coast lines have been
building and building at the same rate.
The bristling Dreadnoughts throng the
seas. We have invented, on both sides,
means of turning them out much more
expeditiously, if not more cheaply, than
we can manage now. If the truth were
known, they do not want, on one side
or the other, to turn out any more.
But each country is compelled to do so,
because if it does not, another country
does. So on they go, thronging the seas,
filling the ships, recruiting the soldiers.
The nations are armed to the teeth and
ready.
"Ready for what ? For the long-expected explosion, for the long pent-up
fury, for war ! But, in my vision war
has, as yet, not come. What has prevented it ? Simply the amazing preparations of the rival powers. Each has
grasped and acceded to the maxim : 'If
you wish for peace prepare for war,'
and each has prepared with such effect
that peace has nrver been disturbed.
Nb,body.dare disturb it! The thought
,o,f the clash of these innumerable Dread-*
���nouglits is too ter-riblo, the fear of the
unheard-of armies grappling far too
great. So they all stand silently watching one another behind impenetrable,
ironclad walls.     ���*   . ,  .*.. . *;..
"That is my vision oi the armed tranquility of the  future.   They make a
World or armaments and call it peace.
But it is inavitable. While rivalries last
and competition endureB this must be.
three cheers for the navy of 1960 !"
. The youth offered some consolation.
'The navy of the  future,"  he  said,
'will not be  St&hdittg altogether useless.   In time Ettl'Opb Will compose its
tlifferences, and silence its suspicions of
itself.   It will be one and indivisible.
Then, with  a common conscience, it
will   ..."
"I know What you are going to say,"
interrupted the other. "You are going
to say that it will turn swords into plowshares���or whatever the quotation is���
and the Dreadnoughts into dancing saloons."
"Not at all," said the youth, who
did not believe in the perfectibility of
the human race. "Not at all. I was
going to say that Europe, with a common conscience and many ironclads,
will then be able to meet the Yellow
Peril at last. Go on with the building
of Dreadnoughts ! We shall want them
for our European navy of 19(50."���
London Daily Mirror.
Extensive Building in the West.
It is estimated that thirty million dollars worth of new buildings will be erected in ten cities
in Western Canada during* the
present season, says a Winnipeg
report. The twin cities at the
head of the lakes are expected to
share in this amount to the extent of six millions. Winnipeg's
share will run between ten and
twelve millions, and the remainder will be distributed between
Brandon, Regina, Moosejaw, Calgary, Edmonton, Victoria and
Vancouver.
In a Northumberland coast village chapel recently the preacher
referred to Christ's fishermen
disciples as "rough, ignorant,
uncouth types of men," "Hey,
stop that, mister," dramatically
interrupted a fisherman worshipper. "Don' t talk that way about
fishermen," continued the interrupter, who went on to loudly declare that they were as good as
those in any other walk of life.
Congregation and preacher were
gregation and preacher were alike
so surprised at the incident that
the man delivered his protest unchecked. The nastor afterwards
resumed his sermon.
