I .list Sunday ami Monday a hush fire
ueai loan ou Alpha Mountain created
some little slum among our citizens
especially when it became known that^
the hush was burning up to within fifty
vardsofthe two powder houses up the
creek. Over iv.onty tons of dynamite
were stored there and the explosives had-

CONCKRNING   BAKING   POWDKKS.
The Inland Revenue Department lias
issued ils report on Raking Powders
(Bulletin-No. 6:lh It contains analyses
of 150 samples ol powders bought oi dealers and manufacturer! in the Dominion,
85 per cent of which are found to be alum
mixtures. In view of the large proportion of this class of powders, Chief All"
nlyst Maufarlan" lecotnineiida that legal
proceedings be taken against parties selling them, an ihe grounds that Ihey are
unheal.thful articles of food, and believes
that their sale will he e md.juiue.I by the
Courts.
The analyses we:o mado by the Assistant AnyalUt, Mr. A. McGill. win fully
diacuWea the injurious nature ol nimn iu
baking powders. Mr. McGill adds; "In
my last-report I expressed my conviction
based on experimental evidence that alum in haling powder is dangerous to
health. The large mass of evidence since
accumulated lias more strongly convinced me of the correctness of tbat
opinion. My personal opinion is decide!}*
against the use of slum. The health of a
ns tion ia too serious a matter to be imperilled lightly, and if it be impossiblelo
secure prohibitory legislation, it is desirable tbat manufacturers bl alntu powders should bi required lu state the
cot,tents on the packages."
Professor Rullan, of McGill College
Montreal, who ma-'e a series of experiments on tho digestibility of bread baketl
with alum powders, is rpioteil as follows:
"The unanimous verdict of my experiments is that alntu powders introduce
into a form of food of universal use, a-
i:er.t8 which are detrimental to the functional activity of the digestive ferments.
They must therefore he predtidiciu! to
health and lhe only course is lo carefully
avoid them."

powders containing alum sold in this vi-

AAH   \   MilSiOMl LEGATIONS SAFE
All the Powers Receive Convincing
News of tbe Fact.
London, July 30.—At last the
British government is convinced
that the ministers at Pekin are safe.
Once the British consul at Tien Tsin
officially confirmed advices to this
effect, all doubts vanished.
LDtBlloii. Were HoldluK Out
Tien Tsin, July 22, via Shanghai,
July 30.—The latest advices from
Pekin, under date of July 15, say
that the legations were holding
out. The Chinese attacked the
legations on the night of July 10,
but were led into a trap by the
Americans and British and 1000
killed. Afterwards they continued
bombarding the legations more
freely.
Among the Chinese killed was
General Ma. The legations were
subsequently attacked with constantly increasing fury. These advices were brought from Pekin by a
courier.
New York, July 30.—The Commercial Cable company sends out
the following notice. "We are advised that communication between
Shanghai and Chefoo is restored."
Holding Them me HoataffM
London, July 30.—The latest
news from the far east seems consistent n ith the theory that the Chinese government has the foreign
ministers alive, but means to treat
them as hostages, while the stories
of massacre relate to other members of the foreign colony in Pekin.
Chinese officialdom, it is alleged,
openly speak of the ministers as
hostages, whose fate depends upon
the decision of the powers in relation to the threatened advance on
Pekin.
Reports are multiplying that a
number of foreigneis were alive to
a late date. Thus, Rome reports
that the propaganda fide have been
assured of the safety of Bishop Fa-
vina, while a telegram from Nankin
informs his family that Prince Cae-
tani, of the Italian legation, is alive
No confirmation of the various
favorable statements, however, is
for thcoming from really independent sources.
A telegram from Shanghai reports, on the authority of a Briton
w ho had been tor years in the ser-
vic e of the viceroy of Nankin, that
pr ior to the framing oi the Yang
Tse agreement with the consuls the
viceroy suggested Anglo-Chinese
occupation ofthe Yang Tse defenses,
but Great Britain declined. It is
reported at Shanghai that the pow-
eis have again proposed, through
Li Hung Chang, the peaceful sur-
re nder of the Woo Sung forts aRd
Kianguan arsenal, but that the Chine se regard the proposal as a
breach oi the existing agreement.
Hired New* ol-Legation..
Washington, July 30. The secretary of state received a midnight
dispatch irom Mr. Fowler, American consul at Che Foo, dated noon
July 29.    Mr. Fowler says:
"A letter from the German legation, dated 21st instant, received
at Tien Tsin, German loss is 10
dead and 12 wounied. Chinese
ceased their attack on the 12th.
B aron Von Ketteler's body said to
be   safe.     The   Austrian,  Italian,
Dutch, and Spanish legations destroyed and the French partially.
"A letter from the Japanese legation, dated 22nd, arrived at Tien
Tsin on the 25th. Ten battalions of
Chinese shelled the legations con-
sequtively from the 20th of J uns and
stopped on the 17th of July, but may
renew. The enemy are decreasing.
The German, Russian, American,
British and half the Japanese and
French legations still defended.
Japanese say they have food for six
days, but little ammunition. The
emperor and empress are reported
at Pekin."
mt* MlMloa la to Sow Dl»ror4
London, July 30.—Shanghai dispatches to the Daily Telegraph say
that Li Hung Chang declares that
tb* emperor, empress dowager and
foreign ministers are all safe. He
strongly favors holding the minis
ters as hostages, so as to secure
favorable terms for the empress
dowager and the rebel government.
It is obvious now that the object of Li Hung Chang's visit to
Shanghai is lo sow discord among
the allies through the consuls, but
as yet he has not met with much
success.
PieuaUh Aetof Treachery
An excellent Chinese source reports that the then governor of
Shan Tung, Li Ping Ling, left a
month ago for Pekin. A couple of
days ago, on his way to Pekin, he
entered Kin Chow and ordered thc
soldiers of his command to massacre the Christians. His soldiers
killed 2000 native Christians and
one French priest.

MISCELLANEOUS   NOTES.
THEV ABB MABIMRD AT 1.A8T
London, July 28.—Lady Randolph Churchill was married today
to Lieut. Corn wal I is West at St.
Peter's church, Knightsbridge. The
church was thronged with handsomely dressed women. There
was no restriction upon the number
admitted to the church to witness
the ceremony except the capacity of
the church, but only relatives and
intimate friends were bidden to the
subsequent wedding breakfast and
no reception was held.
mg A«l*»nee IB Beer
Chicago, July 28.—The Record
today says: Prices of corned and
rib beef have advanced from $1.25
to $1.50 per dozen lor one pound
cans. This is the largest advance
ever made by Chicago and western
packers at one jump. The cause is
the large demand by the United
States government and foreign
powers.
CONE TO PIECES
British Liberal Party Splips on the
Rock of Imperialism.
London, July 28.—Almost as remarkable as the breakdown of long
established social customs before
the tropical wave is the break-up of
the Liberal party. Were a general
election far distant, the condition of
the Liberal party would be serious,
but in view of 'he fact that the
conntry is face to face with dissolution, the situation of the opposition
seems hopeless.
The formation of a third party is
generally considered inevitable as
the result of the internal dissensions
now raging in the Liberal ranks.
Imperialists have thrown off the
mask and demanded control of the
party, maintaining that both by
numbers and influence they are entitled to dictate its policy. In this
they are opposed by the "Forwards,"
or anti-imperialist Liberals, with a
vigor and bitterness that can only
be compared to the acerbity with
which the Gladstonians assailed the
Liberal Unionists when home rule
brought the parting of the ways.
The climax of the strife that has
been simmering since the commencement of the Boer war came
Wednesday, wnen one-third ofthe
Liberal party voted to condemn
Colonial Secretary Chamberlain and
all hja works, one third voted with
the government to sustain him,
while the smallest section of all, in-
eluding the nominal leader, abstained from voting at all.
The government is considering
the appointment of a royal commission on the question ot the future of
the naval coal supply. This action
is greatly due to the increasing production and cheapness of American
coal and the diminishing supply of
Welsh steam coal with which warships are furnished.
_Hob;ituri» School House

New Orleans, July 28.—At a late
hour  last   night a mob which had
evaded the militia and the citizens'
police, attacked the Lafont school
house, Sixth and   Rampart street)'
upon the supposition that negroes,
had stored arms and ammunition in
the building.    They quickly gained
possession and fired the  structure
destroying it completely.
Ad Army of 5000 Boers Surrenders to
Gen. Hunter.
London, July 30.—The follownig
official dispatch was received from
Lord Roberts:
"Pietoria, July 20.—On July 26
MacDonald fought a rear guard
action with the enemy from early
morning until dark, nine miles outside of Nauuwport, in the Bethlehem hills, resulting in his effectually
blocking Nauuwport Nek to the
Boers' wagons. Hunter reports
that the enemy twice checked his
advance by holding strong positions
on two neks, one of which was
taken by the Scots, the Royal
Irish, the Wiltshires and the Lein-
ster regiments. Our casualties
were only five or six. The second
nek was taken during the night by
the Scots and Guards without opposition, the enemy retiring closelv
to Nauuwport.
"Prisoners taken stated that
1200 burghers would surrender, if
guaranteed that they would be
treated as prisoners of war and not
as rebels. To this I had assented.
As a result of these operations,
Prinsloo, commanding the Boers,
asked under a flag of truce this
morning, a four days' armistice for
peace negotiations. Hunter replied
the only terms he could accept were
unconditional surrender and until
these were complied with hostilities
could not cease. I expressed my
approval and told Hunter on no account to enter negotiations.
"As I am writing, a telegram has
come from Hunter, saying that
Prinsloo had written a second letter
expressing willingness to hand over
himself with his men, rifles, ammunition and other firearms upon condition that the horses, saddles, bridles and other possessions of the
burghers be guaranteed them and
they be free to return to their
homes.
"I have replied that the surrender must be absolutely unconditional, that all rifles, ammunition,
horses and other possessions must
be given up and that the burghers
would be considered prisoners ol
war. I added that Prinsloo's overtures will not be allowed in any way
to interfere with Hunter's operation,
which must be continued until the
enemy is defeated or has surrendered."
A later dispatch trom Gen. Roberts, dated July 29, confirms the
surrender of Prinsloo with 5000
Boers.
MUST Ol VB UP COMPliBTBLV
London, July 28.—A special from
Cape Town says:
"Gen. DeWet has offered to surrender on condition that his followers
be permitted to return to their homes
unmolested. Lord Roberts has refused anything except unconditional
surrender."

London, July 28.—The privy
council has dismissed the appeal
from the decision of the court of
queens bench of Lower Canada,
province of Quebec, in the case of
the Banque d'Hochelaga vs. Stevenson. The appeal of the Montreal Gas company vs. Vasey, from
the judgment of the court of queens
bench of Lower Canada, has been
allowed as to the appeal against
the award of $10,000 for refusal to
renew the contract, but the rest of
the judgment is to stand.
THR IIMKIIK AfiAINST SIFTON
London, Ont., July 28.—The
preliminary trial of Gerald Sifton
and Walter Herbert was commenced yesterday morning and continued all day. The evidence of |. Mor-
den, brother of Mary McFarland's
former sweetheart (Miss McFarland was engaged to marry Joseph
Sifton, the alleged victim of Gerald
Sifton and Walter Herbert,) was of
a very damaging nature. Morden
swore that Gerald Sifton approached him with a plan to kill old Sifton, but he refused to have anything to do with the proposition.
Attention has been so fastened,
first on South Africn and now on
China, that the Ashanti war has
been overlooked. Yet Sir Feeder-
ick M. Hodgson's escape from
Coomassie is a deed of pluck and
skill worthy to go down in history.
The campaign in the United
States is between prosperity represented by McKinley and calamity
represented by Bryan. As the people are enjoying prosperity, odds
are on McKinley. A Nebraska
farmer puts the situation in a nutshell when he said: "The farmers
of the state are out of debt and riding in carriages."
The total number of officers, noncommissioned officers and men who
left Canada for South Africa was
3,050, according to an official statement. Up to the time of going to
press the deaths reported numbered
91, not including 6 Canadians in
the imperial service.—Canadian
Military Gazette.
The invalided Canadian soldiers
may find London banquets as injurious to their health as Boer bullets,
unless they are very abstemious.
British Columbia may be favored
by a wave of public opinion that
will make the exclusion of the Chinese possible. But the Japanese
are now the cause of complaint on
the Pacific coast, and they are the
hope of the powers in grappling
with China.—Toronto Globe.
The Cubans are to adopt a constitution next fall, and establish a

American troops and officials will
leave the island.
PEKIN MASSACRE
A Fugitive From the Scene Tells the
Horrible Facts.
London, July 28.—The Daily
Mail has a bulletin from Shanghai
as follows:
Shanghai, July 28.—The manager of the Russian bank of Shanghai has received a letter from the
bank's New Chang branch, stating
that one of their Chinese representatives from Pekin, who had just arrived, confirmed the report of the
Pekin massacre. Torture failed
to shake the man's statement. He
declared that all the foreigners and
ministers were murdered. Seeing
death was inevitable, as the Chinese
swarmed into the legations, the
ministers killed their families at the
last moment. Sir Robert Hart, in
despair, committed suicide."
Loudon, July 28 —The Daily
Mail's Shanghai correspondent telegraphs that a Russian banker, who
left Pekin July 7 and arrived at
Shanghai July 25, says that when
he left Pekin ail the legations had
been destroyed and all the foreigners murdered.

Paris, July 16.—The Chinese minister at Paris, Yu Keng, has received the following imperial decree

Herman Bloomingdale Commits Suicide
at Victoria.
Victoria, July 28. —Herman
Bloomingdale, who was for fifteen
yenrs cashier for Simon Leiser, and
who had for the past three months
been suffering intensely from heart
trouble, shot and killed himself in a
bath in the Driard this morning.
He was an uncle of Mrs. H. G.
Seelig, whose husband died tragically some time ago. Deceased was
6s years of age and had been here
for many years, long enough to be
called an old-timer. He was living
at Mrs. Seelig's residence until
within a few days ago. When she
sold out, intending to go to California, he went to the Driard to
live.
TRADE PREFERENCE.
Preferential trade within the empire has been made a living issue
by the action of the congress of
chambers of commerce of the empire in London. A resolution in
favor of this policy was adopted
with the sole dissenting voice of
Manchester, coupled with another
resolution in favor ofthe formation
of an imperial council, at which
all the colonies should be represented. This is an endorsement ofthe
policy advocated by the Conservative party of Canada in regard to
tiade preference. That policy involves reciprocity, under which
each party would make tariff concessions in consideration of equivalent concessions by the other parties, from which advantages all
non-British countries would he excluded. It does not mean that one
colony would grant a preference of
25 or 30% to the others and then
wait for the others 10 follow suit.
That is the Laurier policy. It has
caused Sir Wilfrid to be overwhelmed with praise by British
newspapers and politicians, but it
has not obtained for Canadian products any preferred position in British markets. It is beautiful from a
sentimental point of view, but it is
not business.
The difficulty in the way of this
policy of reciprocity within the empire is that the principal products of
the colonies are articles of food. To
give the colonies the" preference,
the mother country would have to
impose a duty on food from foreign
countries. To this the British
workingman is violently opposed.
The question of protection or free
trade was fought out in the old
country on this very point of a duty
on wheat and the free traders Cob-
den and Bright illustrated their argument with the small loaf representing protection and the large
loaf representing free trade. The
picture of the large and the small
loaf comes before the mind of the
British workingman whenever the
tariff question is mentioned. It has
rendered him almost incapable of
giving a hearing to any advocate of
a tariff duty in any form. This is
the most serious obstacle which will
be encountered by those who attempt to carry any measure of imperial reciprocity through parliament. Mr. Chamberlain doubtless
had it iu mind when he made the
following guarded utterance in the
house of commons:
"If there were to be any kind of
fiscal arrangement with the colonies, I believe the only form that
would meet with the slightest favor
would be an imperial zollverein in
which there would be free trade
between the portions of the empire,
and duties as against strangers."
But. if the mother country should
become engaged in war with one of
the great grain-producing countries
of the world, a large part of her
food supply would be cut off and
she might be compelled to turn to
her colonies to make up the deficiency. The encouragement of
those colonies in producing the food
supply is therefore a measure of
self-defense. Further, the colonies
might contribute a proportion of
their customs revenue to an imperial
defense fund for the maintenance
and increase of the army and navy
By this means, the mother country,
share of the cost oi imperial defen '
might be reduced, while the arm'
and navy- -the means of defense^!
were made larger and more efficient
through the contributions of th
colonies. A duty on foreign food
products imported into the United
Kingdom could be made so small as
to hardly affect their selling prjCe
but might produce a respectable
revenue in the aggregate for the
imperial defense fund.

follows:
"We are receiving no assistance
from the authorities. Three legations are still standing, including
the British. We also hold part ol
the city walls. The Chinese are
shelling us from the city with a
three-inch gun, and some smaller
Hues are sniping us. We may be

"We would have perished by
Ihis time, only the Chinese are cowards and have'no organized plan
of attack If we are not pressed,
we may hold out a fortnight longer; otherwise four days at the utmost. .1 anticipate only slight resistance for the relief forces."
Sir Claude concludes by advising the relief forces to approach by
the eastern gate, or by way of the
river. The losses of the foreigners
in Pekin up to July 6 were forty
killed and eighty wounded.

New York, July 27.—A treaty of
peace between the government and
the revolutionists has been signed,
says a special to the Herald from
Panama. This action followed directly after the most desperate battle of the entire revolution, in which
the losses on each side were very
heavy.
Owing,   it is believed,   to   some
misunderstanding  of  the terms of
the armistice brought  about by the
American,   the   English    and   the
French consuls, the insurgents suddenly  renewed  their attacks upon
the suburbs of Panama.    The fighting   lasted   11   hours.    The  rebel
troops  made charge  after   charge
upon the  trenches  of the government troops, pushing forward with
a   recklessness  approaching closely
to  madness.    These  desperate assaults were kept  up all night long,
and were  met with equally  brave
resistance by the  regulars.    In one
ofthe entrenchments,   defended by
a detachment  composed entirely of
young men  from  this  city,   nearly
every   one   of   the  defenders   was
either killed or badly wounded.
The tide of battle was turned by
the arrival of an express train from
Colon with eight hundred fresh
troops to reinforce the government,
and the rebels withdrew.
Dead  and  dying men were lying
along the   Caledonia   road  beyond
the railroad bridge for half a mile,
sometimes     scattered    a  few  feet
apart   and   more   often   in   heaps
closely   packed     together.     How
many were  killed during the night
is not yet known, but   the   number
will reach into the   hundreds.    The
exact loss may never be known, for
many of the wounded men  crawled
into the way thickets.    As   quickly
as  possible  the   Red  Cross corps,
aided by the ambulance corps ofthe
British     cruiser    Leander,    began
gathering up and   attending to  the
wounded.    Cartload   after cartload
of corpses were gathered  together
and cremated. ■
Dr.  Carlos  Mendoza,  secretary-
general ofthe revolutionary government, went to the old station ofthe
Panama   railroad   under a  flag of
truce at noon.    He met there Gen.
Albana, governor   of Panama, and
discussed with him the  terms of a
treaty of peace between the  hostile
forces.    An agreement was reached
after a long conference.    Under the
terms of Ihis  treaty, the  surrender
of the insurgents is complete.   They
agreed to deliver up   all  arms, ammunition and ships in their  possession.    The  government grants full
amnesty  to   all the   revolutionists
and  the   officers are  permitted lo
retain   their   swords.      Foreigners
who fought in the  insurgent ranks,
are to be allowed lo  return to their
homes.    All political prisoners held
at Panama have been released.
Excitement in the city is already
gradually subsiding nnd there is
general rejoicing Ihat the fighting
has ended without the threatened
bombardment of Panama.
selling arms for use against her own
soldiers and sailors.
The diplomatic explanation is that
the hostilities, which caused a loss
of 800 to the allied   forces   in   one
battle,   are   quite   informal.     According to international law, nations
can fight, but they cannot be at war
unless they comply with certain formalities.     One of these is that the
ambassadors of each party must ask
for, or be tendered, their passports.
Neither the ministers at  Pekin nor
the Chinese government have complied with this formality.    The ministers have been too busily engaged
otherwise—namely,   in  rifle   practice—to ask for the precious documents, and the tsung li yamen may
explain the legations are too densely
surrounded by a mob of belligerent
Boxers to admit of their tendering
these documents to the ministers.
II the latter should have been  murdered, they never   will   get  these
passports and there will be a hiatus
in the proceedings.
For these reasons, there is no
war, although there is considerable
shooting in progress and corpses
are numerous on the banks of the
Peiho river.

Invalid Canadian Soldiers Feasted in
London.
Toronto, July 27.—The Globe
correspondent in London fays
Claude Cay ley, a former Toronton-

af the Strathcona Horse and the
first and second contingents were
present, representing the majority of
the leading cities of the Dominion,
including Vancouver.
During the evening it was announced that the earl of Kinnoult

Liverpool, July 27,—At the second day's racing of the Liverpool

The expenses of the Yukon custom house are charged to British
Columbia, but this province does
not get credit for the collections.
This is an injustice which could be
remedied by a little bookkeeping.
There are only 10 presidential

Socialists have   made  nominations.
A COMPARISON,
NOT ACCORDING TO HOYLE,
Louis H. Scott has been left
$7000 by an old maid whose life he
saved at Atlantic City. Most young
men are satisfied with a young
maid's gratitude for saving her life
and would be inclined to give the
old maid the go-by.
It is one of the  beautiful  fict:ons
of international law  thnt   China   is
not at war with the European  powers nnd the   United   States.      The
allied  powers   have   captured   the
Tuku   forts,   bombarded   and   half
ruined Tien Tsin nnd   landed  large
forces on Chinese soil, hut thev are
not at war with China.      The Chinese ambassadors remain nt Washington and at  Ihe   European  capitals, and diplomatic intercourse with
them is not interrupted,   while  thc
nations to which they are accredited
are   pounding   Chinese    cities    to
pieces and are rushing more  troops
to the scene.     These Chinese  ambassadors do not  complain  of the
injury to their official   feelings,   nor
ask for their passports,and the governments do not offer the passports.
While Great Britain is fighting  the
Chinese, it is actually necessary  to
introduce a special bill in parliament
to prevent the queen's subjects from
Edward Atkinson, the economist,
thinks that the United States will
dominate the world, because of
their abundance and variety of raw
products. Great Britain, he says,
lacks food, fibres, iron ore and
many metals. Germany lacks
food, fibres and many metals.
France has plenty of food, but
lacks metals, coal, timber and fibres.
The United States has abundance
of food, fuel, timber and all metals
except tin and all fibres except
wool and silk. Therefore all the
principal countries in the world are
dependent on others, except the
I'nited States.
But Mr. Atkinson has ignored
Canada as not worth considering.
Yet there is hardly a point of superiority possessed by the United
States which Canada does not also
possess. She has food to spare for
export. She has fuel in abundance.
She produces every metal produced
in the United States and nickel in
addition. She has a large supply
of timber.
The main differences between
the United States and Canada from
an industrial standpoint are that
the development of the latter is far
behind that of the former and that
Canada has not the variety of food
and fibre products which the United
Stutes -enjoys on account of its
diversity ot climate. But the re-
sour.es are present and an equal
expenditure of capital, skill and energy would bring as great, if not
greater, results than in the United
States.

The Russians are overflowing
with sympathy for the "liberty-loving Boers," but have none to spate
for the Finns whose liberties the
czar has taken away.
John Morley contends that the
Liberal party in Great Britain is face
to face with a condition, not a theory. He declares that the Liberals
must either do practical work towards the betterment of the condition of the working classes, or else
make way for the Socialists who,
he believes, will then consolidate all
the opposition to Conservatism.—
Vancouver World.
The total Dominion revenue collected in British Columbia in the
year 1898-9 was $3,184,023, while
the Dominion expenses were only
$1,380,321. But this province has
no representative in the cabinet and
the demand of its members for a
fair share of the money collected
falls on deaf ears.
Mr. Sifton is under fire again.
When the reserved claims in Yukon
territory were offered for sale at
auction, the best among them, for
which there were most bids, were
withdrawn. There is room tor explanation here.
The Kamloops Standard applauds
Mr. Bostock's decision to retire
from politics and says: "Mr. Bostock came to this country some
years ago, full of enthusiasm, full
ol honest wishes to better his fellow
men. He lound when he got behind the back door that the so-
called party of purity was infinitely
more corrupt than the more cynical
Conservative."
A statistician announces that of
the 70,000,000 people in the United
States only 312 are struck by light-

This reminds us of a favorite saying of Mark Twain.
The Government Labor Gazette,
to be published at Ottawa under
the direction of the department of
labor, will be edited by W. L.
Mackenzie King, who has studied
at the universities of Toronto, Harvard, Oxford, Cambridge, Berlin
and other European centers of learning.
The politicians are preparing for
an early Dominion election by
flooding the mails with literature
and arranging political picnics.
John P. Booth, the new speaker
of the legislature, is a veteran, having been a member ofthe first legislature after confederation.
Austialia has become a commonwealth and entered the British company of nations.
It is a pity that Russia, France

The Chinese proposal to send the
foreign ministers under escort ta
Tien Tsin is the only confirmation
possible of the assurances of Iheir
safety.
It is just a coincidence of cetirse,
but since the peace conference assembled this sin-cursed world has
heard nothing but war and rumors
of war.—Toronto Telegram.
Tbe statistician Mtilhall, ia an
article in the North American Review, estimates the population of
the United States at 76,200,000.
This is the lowest estimate, others
running over 77,000,000. The population has doubled in thirty years,
the greatest relative increase being
in the decade 1870-80.
Large exports of coal to France
have caused a scare in the old country, but Mr. Balfour says they will
be stopped by tbe bill against exports of war munitions, which is
now before parliament. While
they are fighting China, the powers
are preparing to fight one another.
lt is proposed to substitute tbe
maple leaf for the Dominion arms
on the red ensign, as it has become
recognized as the badge of Canadian nationality abroad.
It is denied both by Lord Strathcona and by 26 invalided Canadiaa
soldiers in London tbat Canadians
have wandered around that city
homeless and penniless. Some may
have squandered their allowance,
but none have had reason to he
homeless and all provision has been
made for their comfort.
Don't scratch a mosquito bite.
Patrick G. Close, an old citizen of
Toronto, did so and died of blood-
poisoning.
The proposal in the city council
to regulate street signs and verandahs came none too soon. It is
risky for a tall man in a tall hat, or
a small man under an umbrella, to
walk along Columbia avenue.
There is a bylaw lorhidding the
sweeping of refuse from the stores
onto the street, which appears to
have been forgotten by some merchants.
Speaking of conditions in British
Columbia,. Hon. Fred Peters of
Victoria said in an interview at
Montreal: "Confidence is already
restored to a considerable extent,
and new capital can come into Ihe
province without any fear of radical
legislation seriously interfering with
the country's development."
It is officially stated that 71 guns
of position, with 11,740 rounds of
ammunition, 123 field guns,with ni,-
400 rounds, and 297 machine guns,
with 4,228,400 rounds of ammunition have heen supplied to China since
April, 1895, by British firms. A
German firm has supplied China
with 460,000 Mauser rifles and
8,000,000 rounds of ammunition ia
the same  period.—Toronto  Globe.
The C. P. R. has offered to carry
5000 imperial troops daily trora
(J nc bee to Vancouver on the way
to China. Canada is on the short
route to the Orient and is prepared
j proveo it.
The cause of friction between
Canadian soldiers and imperial
army-officers is that a Canadian
does not surrender his right to think
and act for himself when he becomes
.1 soldier, l'aarderberg proves that
this individual liberty brings good
results. The Canadian is a citizen-
soldier; Tommy Atkins is a machine-sol iier. Imperial officers
trained to command the latter de
not know how to manage Ike
former.
