Early next summer an Antarctic exploration expedition will set
out from St. Elmo, France. The
expedition will be under Dr.
Jean Charcot, the famous French
explorer who is now busily making his preparations.
Discussing his plans, Dr. Charcot said; We hope to be able, to
on our journey in July, and our
intention is to be absent for a
period of two years. In view of
contingencies, however we shall
have with us sufficient provisions
to last three years. Our expedition is bent on scientific work.
Of course, we shall try to get
as near to the pole as possible,
but if We fail we .shall do everything possible to acquire knowledge of the region.
An important part of our equipment will be motor sleds, which
are being generously built by the
Marquis do Dion. With these we
shall make experiments in the
Alps during this winter. Of
course, the geographical success
of our expedition will depend
upon the ice conditions and upon
what we shall find, but Grahame
and Alexander lands are very
rich for scientific research.
The ship foi- the expedition is
being built at St. Malo, and in
her designs we have been greatly
helped by the advice of Dr.
Bruce, the late commander of
the Scottish expedition. The ship
will be specially strong in view
of the ice pressure, and will be of
barquentine rig, with compound
engines of 550 horse power. She
is to be 135 feet in length, with a
beam of 30 feet and will Carry
230 tons of coal and 100 tons of
provisions, sufficient to-' last for
three years.
The crew will consist of 22
men, ten of whom were members
of my last expedition. The scientific staff, in addition to myself,
will number three naval officers,
two zoologists, one geologist, and
one scientist for magnetic and
photographic work.
With regard to the funds of
the expedition, the French chambers have already voted Soo.ooo
franc***, while another sum of
equal amount will also be voted
by parliament. Private subscriptions have already yielded G5,ooo
francs. The academy of sciences
has prepared our scientific program, and the Commission of
Missions of the Ministry of Public Instruction has drawn up a
very favorable report on the subject of our proposed expedition.
The marine department is giving the necessary coal and a very
valuable collection of scientific
instruments, while the Oceano-
grap'hical Institute of Paris,
founded by the Prince of Monaco,
is also helping me.

Successful Sale and Entertainment.
The entertain;'lent and sale of
work held by the Woman's Auxiliary last evening in the Mission
School room was a pronounced
success in every way. All of the
goods   which ,the women   have
been engaged in making for
nearly two months past found a

Loring, in charge of the booth
where these goods were displayed, were sold out early in the

Sites Discussed in Open Meeting ia
Bulkley Valiey.
A public meeting was held at the
New Telkwa Hotel on the evening of
Tuesday the eighth, and was attended
by some eighty odd residents of the
Balkley Valley. The object of the
meeting was to prove the desire of the
majority of the settlers to have a bridge
across the Bulkley River, above the
mouth of the Telkwa, built on the site
originally chosen by Mr. J. H. Gray,
who had ridden in, at his great inconvenience, on purpose to throw whal
lij-'ht he could on the subject. The chairman's duties were ably performed by
Mr. C. J. Hastings. Mr. E. Hoops
kindly acted as secretary.
In a very concise speech Mr. Gray
pointed out that he had carefully measured the river at three different points,
and from this measurement and an examination of the river bottom, had selected the site immediately above the
mouth of the Telkwa, giving it the
preference on account of the span being
shorter (100 feet), the bridge being in
the safest place from drift during high
water, and both piers being placed or
the solid bed rock. Added to this, taio
Mr. Gray, the fact that y^u have the
material on the ground and everything
ready to continue work, I should certainly consider the selected site the
more desirable one. In answer to Mr.
Stevenson's inquiry whether this material would not build a bridge three hundred feet further upstream, Mr. Gray
said: "It mijjht build half a bridge at
that site, but the plans would not dc
even for that half," and then went on
to give the measurements of the upper
span, and quoted the mien span as
measuring one hundred and fifty feet.
Rev. Mr. Stevenson said that this
material could be used to build half the
bnidge and a further appropriation
sought from the government: but could
not believe that it would be necessary
to procure new plans and specifications;
nor '-vould it icca3ion any delay.
Mr. Mark Carr then pointed out that
though half a loaf was better than no
bread, half a bridge was litte better
than none; and dwelt on the difficulty
of swinging a span across the river at
high water,
Mr. Stevenson then arose ahd made a
motion that any speaker might only occupy the floor for a limited time; and
then proceeded to make irrelevant statements for so long that he occupied the
rest of the time in apologising for, and
taking back most of them. However,
b". pointed >>ut that as Broughton & McNeil were the pioneers in the valley,
they wore entitled  to have the  bridge
! whose only desire is a bridge,
handy to the ferry, at once.
In a brief but effectual speech Mr.P.R.
White brought many weighty arguments before the meeting as to whether
the bridge should be built on the selected site or not. He also showed that
Mr. Stevenson had already acquired
a reputation for being of a flexible disposition, as he had at first
opposed the Copper River trail
and then,when it had become an assured
tiling, had turned and favored it. But
he (Mr. White) would like to know
of what use the Copper Trail would be
with no bridge at the Telkwa end of it,
and he felt assured that if the present
bridge idea was abandoned, our chances
for having a bridge for another year,
at least, were very slim.
Mr. Mar!: Can' t-gain went on to ex**
plain that there was no question of
friends or party, but having his bridge
gang on the ground and everything
ready to proceed with construction,
he regretted very much that this dispute over its location should have occurred; and, if there were any grounds
for it, that if had nr)t occurred earlier
as he was confident that if this bridge
was not built at once there would be no
bridge next summer and the unfortunate prospector, down from his claims,
would again have to starve himself and
his horse while awaiting the pleasure of
the whilom ferryman.
After several lively sallies, which
began to asurr.e the aspect of war between the rival townsites, Aldermere
and Telkwa, Mr. J. Thompson wisely
made a motion that a ballot be taken
whether the settlers of the valley wanted the bridge built on the selected site
or not. The ballot to be marked "Yes"
or "No." The motion was carried
unanimously and return? of the vote
showed the majorijy to be in favor of
the immediate building of the bridge
on the selected site.
There is no doubt that the majority
would have been much larger had it not
been for the fact that, though the meeting was fairly representative, there
were present a number of comparative
strangers, desirable ones too as wage-
earners are not so plentiful here, but
men who had absolutely no interest in
the country, and could not be brought
to understand that the stopping of work
at this time would mean the indefinite
delay of the bridge. Added to this a
natural soreness that they had not been
able to secure work on the bridge when
it was under way, it being absolutely
impossible to hire them ali, it was only
natural they should like to see a more
expensive bridge built, hoping that the
changes thus brought about would furnish them with employment.
It is hoped by the greater part of the
ranchers and all of the miners in the
country that by the time this article
goe3 to print the bridge tvill be going
merrily, o^ the old plans, in the old
place, wi.n the old gang, composed of
nen who have spent from four to twelve
years in this country; and if they do
happen to be sti angers to some of ua
it is only because th"ir time mostly has
been Bpent far from the beaten track;
hunting for the minerals they have
proved to exist. It is on the mines that
��� he future of our country most depends
08 the farming lands must lean to a
considerable extent on the rapid development of our mines for that profitable
market which is the essential.
The scientists are finding out
many things about ancient nations, some of which may be true
and some not. Inference is often
advanced as fact. Guesses grow
into possibilities, and possibilities
into improbabilities, and probabilities into certainty. Dr. G** M.,
Kyle tells a story which illustiates?
one method of argument. An
Assyrilologist boasted to an
Egyptologist that "the Assyrians
understood electric telegraphy
because we have found wire in
Assyria." "Oh," said theother,
"We have not found a scrap of
wire in Egypt, therefore we
know the Egyptians understood^
wireless telegraphy." ��� Home"

Laurier will finish his work.
The Conservative   idea  was to
have him finish it a few weeks
ago, but the  people  said they
would give him five more years
to clean up in.   Clean up is a
good word.    Sir Wilfrid will do
well to roll  it over in his mind
and prepaid.   Some newspapers
have heen saying': ''The hundred-
million-dollar   man   for   ours."
Well, we've got him.   it is now,
as we take it, up to the hundred-
million-dollar man to achieve another kind of reputation���& reputation for thrift and economy.
A man is not great simply because   he is expensive,  though
vulgar persons often reason that
way.   There is a better fame to
be won than that of being a high-
roller.    It speaks a sort of newness in our national life, a sort of
nouveau-riche purse   proudness
that we should be so keen  on
squandering.   At all events, it is
no sign of gentility.    It shows
rather   that  one is not to the
manor born.    It is the ostentation
I of a young country, and may be
noticed also in the United States.
The fact of the matter is that
this Canada of  ours  has  been
spending money like a drunken
sailor.   Its best friends, including
j Sir Richard Cartwright, say so,
although they are  too polite to
put it that way.   The national
transcontinental railway will cost
$250,000,000.   The Hudson's Bay
railway���if it ever comes to anything���will cost millions more.
These enterprises should be looked into with a view of finding
out the leaks.   It may even be
advisable to stop and think whether it is wise to build the Hudson's
Bay railway at all.   The United
States with twelve times as many
people as Canada, spends only six
times as much money every year.
Man for man, the Canadian spends
on his national business two dollars and a half to the American's
one.   The   game  of  borrowing
from John Bull we play with the
greatest hilarity.    Our future we
mortgage with   delightful  irresponsibility.    Once upon a time
it was the United States that had
the name of taking long chances,
and Canadians were supposed to
be good old sober-sided six-percenters.   Now Canada can teach
them   all   something    in    high
. finance.    It may not be time for
i a change, but it certainly is time
ito begin   saving our change.���

Men Record Thrilling Adventure in
Pacific Waters.
Attacked by a gigantic whale
which smashed their boat to
pieces by a mighty sweep of its
tail, Second Mate John Thomas,
Boat Steerer Joe Sever and four
seamen of the whaling barque
John and Winthrop, which arrived at San Francisco after a ten
months' cruise in the South Seas
and along the coast of Japan,
nearly lost their lives in the
blood-tinged waters.
They were far from the barque
when the whale, maddened with
pain, turned upon thern, and they
surely would hav-* perished had
they not clung to pieces of wreckage until picked up by a rescue
party, which had witnessed the
movements of the enraged whale
from the barque.
The whale had been harpooned
by Sever and with the harpoon
imbedded in his head and the
rope paying out like lightning,
was headed for the open sea.
For nearly half a mile the whale
boat tore along through the water
as if propelled by steam. Far
ahead the whale was spurting
spirals of blood-colored water into
the air. The line was now let
out slower and at last brought
taut, while the whale, apparently
realizing his ultimate defeat,
turned about and headed directly
for the boat.
Before the men could grasp
their oars ahd put about the leviathan was uptfn them and in an
instant they found themselves in
the water with pieces of their
boat floating ahout them. The
movements of the animal had
kicked up the water into foaming
billows and it was with great
difficulty that they could ket*'p
their heads above the surface.
No sooner had the whale demolished the boat than he dived
deeply into the sea, leaving a
blood-red trail behind. As best
they could the whalers clung to
oars and portions of the wrecked
craft. They were in the water
for nearly an hour before a rescue party from the barque reached them. Their predicament had
been seen by the man in the
crow's nest, who is always on
duty with a glass to watch for
such mishaps.

The Oldest Treaty.
The oldest text of a real treaty
now in existence is that of the
convention between RamesesII.,
king of Egypt, and the Prince of
Kheta, which embraces the articles of a permanent offensive
and defensive' alliance, with
clauses providing for the extradition of emigrants, deserters,
criminals and skilled workmen.
This treaty was drawn up in the
fourteenth cUntury B.C. and is
the earliest record that we have
of any international transaction.
The incumbent of an old church
in Wales asked a party of Americans to visit his parochial school.
After a recitation he invited them
to question the scholars and one
of the party accepted the invitation. "Little boy," said hn to
the rosy-faced lad, "can you tell
me who George Washington
was?" "Iss, surr," was the
smiling reply. " 'E was a 'Meri-
cange'ral." "Quite right. And
can you tell me what George
Washington was remarkable
for?" "Iss, surr. 'E was remarkable 'cos 'e was a 'Merican
an' told the trewth." The rest
was silence.��� cassell's Journal.
