THE RUSSIAN BEAR.
policy Seems to He Much ou tlie Lines «*
Napoleon's Foraer.v of 1'eter
the tis-eut'n Will.
The passage    through the Dandan
lllcs    of   two  unurined  Russian toi-
Jicdo-bpat    destroyers is an incident.
|u>parently    insignilicant    in   itself,
lut,   viewed   in the light    of   Great
ttitain's traditional distrust of Rus-
Ii;,   and  under  the magnifying glasn
li Irresponsible alarmists,     it     ap-
ears to be almost a menace to   thi;
|..\l-tenco of the Empire.    I-as Majes-
i.v'k representative at Constantinople
(ins    protested to the l'oite, who is
.e guardian of the Black   Sea, and
[hough no answer has been returned,
Ivtiy possible explanation has been al-
loatly- anticipated    and  discounted.
I'i he action of the Russians was    an
>peri violation of the Treaty of Par-
lis.    England assumes her attitude of
l\ i Lucius   indignation,     and    Russia
fpiiotly pursues her policy.
Sallsbur.v's Canons ~1» ig.
When    England and  France under-
ftooA to uphold the   tottjting Turkisl.
__.ni,-ire,  und threw themselves   upon
[Hi.ssia in the Crimean War, the for-
Imer country, as Lord Salisbury has
Isi.ice said,  "put its money    on   the
[wrong horse."   However, the '"wrong
thorse"   was   fust   under    the    wi.e.
[When the war was about at an end,
[Lord Lyhdhurst vigorously declared
that "theie could  be no place with-
| out  lirst  destroying  Russia's   Black
'Sea   fleet,  and laying prostrate    the
[fo locations    which    protested   it."
The ivf.it o    the    great    docks     and
de.en.es of Sebastopol,  ck-igned    in
1880 hy  an English eng. nee.',   were
demolished, at/6 the Treaty of Paris
Whi h concluded the conflict expressly
provided that the lortrers should nou
be rebuilt and that tne  Black   Sea
s'.iotild be free from the warships of
eve y power.    Tho key to the Black
Se i is the Dardanelles, swkigi.g os-
te.it .tLiusly    at the .Sultan's guide.
Russia's eye has ever teen upon i'

Piince Gortchnl off, whose ambitioii
It was to be the Li/enaick of Rust i.i,
».\w his opportunity in 1870 when
prance and'Germany weie ut war.
Jle i.sucd a curt notification of the
|, V_ar s intention to abrogate that
iause of the Treaty of Paris which
forbade the rebuilding of Sebustopol.
Fiance wus in no position to object;
England could not but liie a formal
protist. Thus Sebastopol is stronger than ever l.ei'oie.
An A Honed Hi-each of faith.
By the treaty of Berlin in 1878,
which made peace between Kussia
and Turkey after their second eon-
l.ict, all the powers were rewarded
for their kindly forbearance. It was
B then that Britain got Cyprus, while
tl,o Dlaok Sea was inucle formally
what it already was geographically,
a Russian lake No restrictions were
removed, however, from the passage
of the Dardanelles. These straits
were to remain inviolate. Tba
C-»..*'b land frontier was extended t<>
i.'ini.racc Kars, a port of |Batoum. It
vvas stipulated that Batoum shou'd
remain Unfortified, but Russia soon
found occasion to disregard that provision. This violation formed the
text for other charges of bad faith;
but it. is said now that there was a
secret understanding among the pow-
is.'s at the time of tho tre'y that
Batoum might be protect r "
*»•« Canal Business.
The Suev. Canal, cut at such tremendous cost of money and life, is
proving a lucrative investment to its
present owners. The net tonnage
passing through the canal last year
increased 42 l,.r»7!l tons over 1001.
The transit receipts were over tv.en-
ty million dollars—the h ghest re-
c'tved since the opening of the canal: :i,70f vessels passed through the
r.iinal IfcsJ yeur, of which 2,1(55 (lew

] ord Dundonald, who commands
the Canadian militia, is the proud
possessor of a grandfather, who,
though long dead, may yet prove the
salvation of the British Empire ill
time of need. Somewhere at Whitehall there exists a s.cret of which
tho nation would probably want to
hear more were Britain ever threatened with invasion. It. is the "secret war plan" of Admiral Cochrane,
tenth Eat 1 of Dundonald, grandfather of the gallant soldier who
bears the title to-day. It was declared to ho an invention capable ol
destroying any Toot or fortress in
the world. When ti:st he ma_e his
announcement, it vvas referred to a
secret committee consisting of the
Duke of York. Lord Keith, Lord Ex-
mouth, and the two Congreav.fi who
pronounced it "infallible, Irresistible,
but inhuman.*' It vvas on the latter
ground alone that the scheme was
not adopted. When the Inventor entered the service of Chili, the 1' ince
Regent extracted from him a _o emit
pledge that he would never b-;i'a.> h,s
knowledge to any other power. Ke
kept his promise, and though the
plans were reconsidered, and tho'r
adoption advocated when the Crliro-
an War broke out. the matter wus=
allowed to He in abeyance.

This shows a decline of two hundred

Australian population during the decade.
It has also been ascertained that
the average marriage aire of Australasian women is steadily advahe'nu.
In 1881 it was twenty-two an-1 a
half years; in I5'01 it was twenty-
four years. This is regaided as r.n
indication of a tendency to occct't
with reluctance the responsibilities of
the r.inr iage state; that the At s ra-

to physical incapacity than to individual unwillingness. The Few ."ou:h

' A j-,' I cries, 'but   I'll   produce my
nl',
" 'The waur for you,' says lie, 'for if
ye try to overthrow the law we'll bury
ye again, though ib should be at the
public expense.'
"Lads, that made me uneasy, and all
I could think to do was just to fling out
jny foot at the  bantam.
" 'Ye daur look ine in the face, Davit
Whamand,' I says, 'and pretend as I'm
no mysel'?'
" 'I daur do so,' he says; 'and not
only are ye no yersel', but I would never
.have recognized ye for sueh.'
" 'So, so,' I remarks; 'and ye refu e
to deliver up my coat?'
" 'Yes,' he says, 'and what's more I
never had your coat.'
"Lads, that was his cautiousness in
case twa lines of defense was needed before the bailie; but I said no more to
liim, for now the hoiife began to All with
folk wanting to make sure of me, and I
was keen to convince them I was in the
flesh before Davit prejudiced thetn. Ay,
llfghie, you was one of them as convoyed
me to Hender Haggart's."
"I was, Tammas, and when ye shut
the door on nie a mask of folk came
round me to hear how ye had broke
out."
"I daursay that, but their curiosity
didna interest me now Ye mind when
we got tn Hender's house it was black
and dark, him pretending to be away to
his bed? Ay, bul the smell of roasting
potateos belied that. As we ken now,
Hender had been warned that I was at
Davit's demanding back the coat, and
he suspected I would come next to him
for the waistcoat and the hat.''
"Ay, but he had to let ye in."
"Ou, I would have broken in the door
rather than have been   beat,   and  in the
tail of the   day  Hender   takes   the snib
off the door."
"He pretended he thocht ye a ghost
too, did he no?"
"No, no, that's a made up story. Hender and his wife had agreed to pretend
that, but when Hender came to the door
he became stupid-like, and when I says
'Ay, Hender,' he says 'Ay, Tammas.'
I've heard his wife raged at him about it
after.
" 'Nanny,' I says to the wife, 'it's ma
back again, and ye'll oblige by handing
ower my waistcoat and my hat.'
"I've forgotten to tell ye that when
I walked in, Nanny was standing on a
stool with a poker in her hand, the
which she was using to shove something
on the top of the press out of sicht. She
jumped down hurriedly, but looking
bold, and says she, 'These mice is very
troublesome.'
"Weel, I had a presentiment, and I
says, 'Give me the poker, Nanny, and I'll
get at the mice!' Says she, 'Na, na;' and
she lifts away the stool.
"All this time Hender had been looking very melancholy, but despite that, he
was glad to see me back,and he says in a
sentimental way, 'You're a stranger,
Tammas,' says he.      '
" 'I am, Hender,' says I, 'and I want
my waistcoat, also my hat.'
"Hender gave a confused look to the
wife, and says she, 'The waistcoat has
been sold for rags, aud I gave the hat to
tinklers.'
" 'Hender Haggart,' says I, 'is this
so?'
"Hender sort of winked, mer.-iing that
we could talk the thing ower when Nanny wasna there, but I couldna wait.
" 'I think. Nanny,' says I, pointedly,
"as I'll take a look at these mice of
yours.'
" 'Ye'll do no sieh things,' says she.
" 'I'm thinking,' says I, 'as I'll find a
black waistcoat on the top of that press,
and likewise a Sabbath Imt
"Hender couldna help giving me an
admiring look for my quickness, but
Nanny put her back to the press, and
says she, 'Hender, am 1 to lie insulted
before your face?'
"Hender was perplexed, but he says to
me, 'Ye hear what Nanny says,Tammas?'
" 'Ay,' I says, 'I hear her.'
" 'He hears ye, Nanny,' says Hender.
" 'But I want my lawful possessions,'
I cries.
"Hender hesitated again, but Nanny
repeats, 'Hender, am I to be Insulted lie-
fore your face?'
" 'Dinna insult hor before my face,'
Hender whispers to me.
" 'I offer no insult,' I says, loud out,
•but I've come for my waistcoat and my
hat, and I dinna budge till I get them.'
" ' Ye've a weary time before ye, then,'
says Nanny.
" 'I wonder ye wouldna be ashamed to
keep a man frae his  belongings,' I said.
" 'Tell him they're yours, Hender,'
she cries.
" 'Ye see, Tanimai,' says Hender, 'she
says they're min..'
" 'Ay,' I says, 'but ye canna j.retend
they're yours yersol', Hender?'
" 'Most certainly ye can, Hender,'
says Nanny.
" 'Ye see that, Tammns,' suys Hender,
riumphant.
" 'And how do ye mnke out as they
.re You-??' I anks him.
" 'Tell him,' cries   Nanny,
them for helping in his burial
'as ye got
that's how
'Tammas,' sirs Hender,
I got them.'
" 'Maybe,' I says, 'but did I give ye
them?'
" 'Say he was n corp,' Nanny cries.
" 'Meaning no disrespect, Tammas,'
says Hender, 'ye was a corp.'
" 'How could I have been a corp,' 1
argues, 'when here I ant speaking to ye?'
" Hender turned to Nanny for the answer to this, but she showed him hei
back,so he just sail in a weak way, 'We'll
leave the minister to settle that.'
' Hender, ye gowk,' I says, ye ken
I'm living; and if I'm living I'm no
dead."
"Lads, I regretted I hadnaput it plain
like that to Davit Whamand. However,
Hender hndna the clear-headedness
necessary to follow out sieh reasoning,
and he replies,
" 'No doubt,' he _:ays, 'ye are living
in a sense, but no in another sense.'
" 'I wasna the corp,' I cried.
" 'Weel, weel, Tammas,' says he, ln a
fell dignified voice, 'we needna quarrel

I can tell ye what she was proud of on

"What?"
"Before porridge-time no less than
seven women, namely, three frae Tillyloss, twa frae the Tenements, and twa
frae the Roods, chaps at the door and

she was proud or, add I would like to

"Ay, and it's perfectly appnlling to

VOLUME OF PAGES
EWSBURY HOLDS A MOST UNIQUE
PLACE IN ENGLISH HISTORY.
Battle of That Mama Fought 500 Years
A_e Celebrated on July 21, 1003-
Contributor to Historic Feativltlea ln
Shakespeare—Swift and Fiery March
of Hotspur—Lenoni of Shrewsbury.
Shrewsbury, in common with most of
tbe heroines in modern comedy, has
a past. But what is not, 'tis to l>u
feared, alwuys the case with the ladies mentioned, it is not a past to be
nshamed of. It is a page, almost, indeed, a volume of pages, in English
history, and Shrewsbury did not
mean that Englishmen at home, or
the world abroad, should remain forgetful of this. It does not happen
that the picturesque town on the
Welsh border has any very famous
local name upon her annals which
could be commemorated. But she had
something jnore considerable; she had
a great and teiriblo battle to remember which turned aside the whole
current of the kingdom's story and
formed the beginning of a fresh chapter in the chronicles of the throne.
Five hundred years ago, upon the.
verdant plain which, three miles
north of the ancient town, is bathed
by the Silver Severn, was fought
that desperate conllict, wherein Hotspur fell, with more than 2,000 ol
the best-bred gentlemen in the realm,
the issue of thc day being to confirm
the Crown to the Duke of .Lancaster
as Henry IV. Last Tuesday, Julv
21, was the actual day to be celebrated, that being the date of the
famous battle of Shrewsbury. 1 he
army of King Henry IV . trot that of
young Percy in Shrewsbury's i c. ri
meadows, when, out of a fo ce not
exceeding 12,000,on either side, tho.o
riva's left nearly a third of the
total number dead in the rlo er and
the corn, or liiruiilig, woumL-d. iroinj
the dreadful content into the market
place. All these tlvntrs liare been
called into    life ugi. n ! u    little
border town.
Shrewsbury,    howe\e .1  already
a magnificent contribi o. » he historic festivities in Shakespeare, and
with much good seme she made a
Shakespearean wee', out of the show.
Appropriate st uctures had been
raised; Mr. reason's companv had
been engaged, arid the program promised every day, besides lectures,
sermons, discourses, and excursions
pertaining to the e.ents to be revived, included one or more plavs of the
immortal dramatist. These, of
course, comprised "Henry IV.,"
"Hichard IT." and "Henry V.," from
the historical plays; nor could anv
better way be found for bringing back
to all minds that blood-stained and
tumultuous epoch. Most ol us, if
truth were told, get our English history from the Baid of Avon; and
even those who go deeper into records never really shake off Vie profound impressions left b.v his majestic genius. Wherever and whenever
we study thoso plays—and most of
all if studied or s en on the stago
within eyesight of the battlefield—it
is as if we lived in those fierce times.
Head "Henry TV.," and you want no
grander guide—nay, vou will hardlv
accept any other guide. The pages
of any prose history seem dull and
barren in contrast with the superb
power and piercing insight of Shakespeare. We see, as if they lived, the
armies draw nigh to Shrewsbury.
Hotspur marching swift and fiery,
hoping to meet Owen Glendower's
levies hastening from Snowdon and
Plynllmmon; while Henry of Lancaster, with his equal force of 12,001)
men, presses on from Coventry to interrupt the junction,  if that may be.
At noon the armies coine together
in that fair spot beyond the town
which still bears the name of battlefield. From noon till evening they
fight with such ferocity that long before sunset 6,000 or 7,000 are killed
or wounded. And this slaughter, |>,.
it remembered, was all wrought with
sword and spear on one side, und
with bows and arrows upon the other. King Henry IV. owned, indeed,
a big gun, with which, afterward, he
terribly frightened the Scotchmen at
Berwick, and Falstaff in the plav
talks about having his fat body (Hied up with lead. But the carnage at
Shrewsbury was mainly done by tlio
deadly cloth-yard shaft, which hus
perhaps been too lightlv abandoneJ
as a weapon of war. Prince llarrv
himself, for whom this Held was the
first of his warlike experiences received a wound in the face from uu
arrow, and Hotspur was slain by «n
arrow which pierced his eye. When
that, dauntless leader broke by an
early charge the ranks of the King's
army, the Royalists closed up be
hind him, and then for two sanguinary hours "by Shrewsbury clock"'
showered their steel-pointed shafts
into the clubbed and huddled rebels.
There must be plenty „f those fatal
weapons, winged "with the gray
goose feather." 6ven now lying uiul.r
the grass and the market gardens by
the Side .Of   the Severn.

Attracting Attention
on account of
i. Its Fraser River Placers.
As far back as the year 1858, successful placer mining was carried on at Horse Beef
bar, near the town of Lillooet. The adjoining ground is being worked with profit at
the present time,
A. company is now working a gold dredger on the Fraser, with gratifying success, and
a new company has been formed with a capital of $350,000, to operate an improved
dredge near the town of lillooet.
2. Its Promising Mineral Lands.
Anderson lake and BRIDGE river mining properties will prove themselves sufficient to
form a prosperous camp. Yet there are miles of  territory that remain ..unprospected
3. Its Fishing and Hunting Grounds-
Increasing numbers of tourists from all parts of the globe testify that the sportsman's
Paradise is here. Mountain sheep, bear, deer, and all kinds of large and small gaiiie
abound. Anglers find the lusty trout where least expected, aud fresh salmon cease to
be a luxury.
4. Its Salubrious Climate.<^~^>     |...,....,,.,...,.
In tlie dry belt, and at an altitude that renders the seasons temperate and equable,
the climate is most suitable for health-seekers. Semi-tropical fruit may be grown, and
at the present time, November, rosebushes and geranium plants may be seen in bloom
lil the gardens of the town
Nearest Railway towns are ashoroft and lytton, on the Canadian pacific railway.

The Governor-General, in addressing the children in tho park on Empire Hay, said: "With all the self-
