the excellence of the nursery stock
put out by the B. C. Nursery, of
Vancouver. Later Mr. Buindrith,
of that city, published a letter in
this paper discrediting the very existence of tho B. C. Nursery. Since
then other information lias boon
received at this office, showing conclusively that the B. C. Nursery
exists only on paper. It follows
that the agents who sell stock representing it to'he grown hy tho B.
C. Nursery, are doing business on
false pretences, and ranchers should
beware of them. Tho trees sold
may be good enough, or they may
not be. They have so fur been
purchased partly from ll. C. nurseries and partly in Oregon.' Parlies who deal in trees merely as
merchandise naturally drive close
bargains with the nurseries, and
as the nurseries are not responsible
to the ranchers either for the quality of trees or misrepresentation of
agents^ and as they are obliged to
cut pricps vpry low, it follows that
thpy do hot supply their best stock
to transient dealers. Our' home
nurseries are well deserving of
support, and the stock from thpm
is most likely to suit the l.opa.1 conditions. By buying from them

Cream Separator,
A CREAM BEPARAT0H lately set up
by Messrs. Light, and Whittakcr,
who operate the Shannon townslte
farm here, has excited quite a little
interest amongst residents here,
nnd as others of our readers may
be equally curious, the following
brief description may he in order.
The machine was mado by Lister I
& Co., England, and cost $12"), besides freight from Ontario. It is
the largest size for hand power,
and at a glance has much the appearance of a grocer's coffee-mill.
It is not materially lurger but is I
much heavier.   It requires a little
pull to start it going, but when
motion is up it runs easily, and
will continue going of it's own
momentum several minutes after
the operator lots go the crank. The
milk, fresh from the cows, Is
srtuined into a large dish or "hopper" placed over the machine, from
which n tap regulates the How Into
a heavy metal bowl inside, which
is the actual place of'scparution,
and which revolves at the rate of
7,'aX) revolutions a minute. The
milk conies out in two spouts set
over pails to catch it. (Ine spout
runs pure cream, nnd the other
skimmed milk, which mny be "set"
in linns for days without showing
ii particle of cream. It is dear,
therefore, that tho separation is
thorough. The milk from a dozen
cows may be put through In about
ten minutes. The principle seems
to be exnetly the snme ns that upon which gold is washed from Band,
i Cream (oil) is lighter than skim-
ed milk (water), and if the two
are mixed und let. quietly settle,
the cream will come to tlie top, ns
under the old milk pan process.
The same result mny be obtained
by motion, without the necessity
of the long wait, and it is upon
this principle that the crenm
separator works. The rapid
und even revolution of the
bowl containing the particles of
cream nnd water, causes the lighter atoms to separate from tho
heavier and risp to tho top, where
they overflow and pass along the
tube provided, to the creani pail.
So with the skimmed milk. There
is nothing about the material or
cost of construction to require a
cream separator such as we have
been describing to cost $125, and
the charge probably includes heavy
fees for tho pantentee. The m'u-
chine, to amateur eyps, could be
manuiaoture'd at d profit for kJ50,

Peer Hunting with Hounds.
To tha Editor ofscur.KV ioib .
Your timely paragraph re. deer
hunting with dogs should be appreciated not only in Langley and
Surrey but throughout the whole
province. In several niunniei-
palitios the deer are -lire to '«
killod out sooner or later, then why
reserve them for a few to the der-
riment of the many. Again no
man has the right to shoot a dog
imply because it Ut caught running
a deer, if bear or any other wild
animal was the object of pursuit,
and steps should be taken at once
to punish sqch a dastardly act, 'in-
worthy of nny one calling himself
a man. You may as well attempt
to make water run up hill a- to
stop a dog running a deer ii he
comes across the scent. In the
meantime the hears, ifrc, are t.< l»«j
allowed to roam at large doing all
the damage they possibly can.
The act against running deer
with dogs was to last four years
and will expire soon, and it is to
be hoped that it will not be renewed.

1 am pleased to hear that Mr.

that they have such a man amongst

Boworllt'*   Theory   Willi    Regard   to   the
Ilomaliia Pound In Slborla.
In Boworth's book, entitled "Tlio
Mammoth and tlio Flood," tho author
advances a unique theory with regard
to the remains of the mammoth, or hairy
i'li'|ilnnit, whioh is found in such im-
mouse numbers in Siberia. Tuobo oroa>
tuics wore so plentiful at ono timo in
Unit, country Mint ivory hunters found it
more profitable to go thoro lu search of
that, valuable nrtlolo than to South Africa, whore elephants are supposed to bn
»H uuinorous us baodJors in Now York
city. Dowqrth says that they nro invn-
rlnbly found under conditions which
make it oortaln that thoy could not hnvo
lived unless tho BurroondlugB nud oil-
nnitii liiul boon entirely different from
those existing »t prosout   Tho remains
of   plants UpOU which  they fod Olid tho
bouthorn contemporary sbolJs which aro
also frequently found with tlio remains
point tn u Midden uud wonderful ohunge
of ollmutla conditions.
If Profossor Howortb's argument is
to bo given any weight, tho Siberian
plateau is ono of tho most recent foa-
tures iu tho known physical geography
of tho world. Ho figures that tho platoon was suddenly raised to its present
height, and that, prior to its sudden olo-
Vation, it was a warm stretch of lowland furnishing pnsturago to thousands
of mammoth brutoa. Tho rapid olovn-
tiim, according to his deductions, suddenly congealed tho wntora and frozo
the gigantic animal bodies through nnd
through, thus preserving them intnet
until the present day. He saya that unless thoso animals hud been frozen immediately nfter death thoy would cor-
tainly havo decayed and disappeared.
In some places, far to the east in Siberia, ns well as in tho mountainous
regions of Alaska ou our continent, tho
remains of the mammoth and ot her great
extinct animals have been found at a
height of 17,000 foot above son levol.

"Tho matter of confidences between
counsel and client ia one of great interest nnd importance," said a woll known
jurist and ox-judgo tho other day.
"As to tho duty of a lawyer on tho
trial of a case whero ho has been informed by his client that ho is guilty,
tho best and most controlling example
Is that of Charles .lames Phillips, tho
eminent British barrister who in many
directions wus rated in his timo as second only to Lord Erskiuo.
"He was defending Courvolsler, who
was indicted for tho murder of Lord
Russell. During tho trial, on tho examination of a very important witness for
tho people, tho accused was much overcome, and in tho Intensity of ids emotion communicated cither to Mr. Phillips or to his solicitor the fact that he
was guilty of the crime.
"Mr. Phillips immediately asked for
nn adjournment of the case and for a
consultation with tho judges. Tho consultation was granted, and Mr. Phillips
Htated to the bench that tho accused had
confessed his guilt and requested the
judges to point out to him his path of
duty, The judges, nftor deliberation,
stated that ho would hnvo n perfect
right to make such legal and logical deductions from tho evidence aa ho
thought tended tothooxculputionof tho
accused, but it would bo unprofessional
to statu to tho jury any personal belief
of his innocence
"In his argument to tho jury Mr.
Phillips, carried away by his emotions
nud imagination, did state to tho jury
his own personal belief in the Innocence
of his client, uud this statement of his
occasioned much criticism afterward."

Au admirable female detective system is iu voguo iu a number of tho leading dry goods houses of this city.
It has boon provod boyoud a donbt
that tho female thief catcher is more
effective in tho unveiling of shoplifters
than the most sagacious slouth in tho
socrot service department of tho city of
Boston. Thief catchers liko tho veteran
Joo Knox, for instance, cannot ply
thoir vocation with any degree of suo-
cess for nny length of time in a largo
and flourishing dry goods house. This
1b because of the fact that thoir identities become known to tho dry goods
thief nftor a timo, nnd it goes without
saying thnt tho shoplifter will not begin
operations until oil danger of disoovory
from that quarter has passed away. Tho
professional shoplifter is as familiar
with tho figuruof the inspector ns she 1b
with her own likeness. Por this renson
unassuming and unsophisticated maidens aro put on tho qui vivo to forrot out
wily shoplifters aud bring thorn to
speedy retribution. Tho girls assigned
to prosecute detective labor nro woll
ndnptod for the work mapped out for
thorn. The superintendent or chief floor
walker is pretty certain to select a girl
with accomplishments befitting tho detective. If sho Is lacking in ncuteuesa
and fails to perform her work satisfactorily, another is substituted in hor stead
and tho benighted ouo is given a position in the storo.
Nor does tho competent dotnetlvo do-
pond entirely upon hor wits in determining who is a shoplifter aud who is
not She is generally a render of character and is very apt to ascertain hy a
study of a faco whether its owner is a
designing person or not. Tho shoplifter
ofton excites tho suspicion of tho spotter tho moment sho enters tho store.

Miaa Funuio Leabey and Miss Kittle
McNamco aro tho yonng detectives who
t aro employed to keep a vigilant lookout
for evildoers at a big concern in Pein-
bcrton squaro, and vory watchful and
conscientious detectives they are, as their
efficient services distinctly show.   Miss
\ McNamco is a modest little girl of 17
years, with jet black hair and cheeks
. liko a blush rase, aud Is considered the
i most prepossessing girl in tbo business.
Her pnrtuor, Miss Leabey, is an attract- .
, i ve blond, with a natty figure. Each has '
! her owu district to patrol dally, but
sometimes both can be seen in deep con- 1
versntion in the littlo office on tho Pern-
borton square side.    Tho most cautious
shoplifter would fail to detect in tho
demeanor of tbo twain tbe nature of
their calling, and thus it 1b thoy are
: able to exposo moro wrongdoing in the
store thnu any of the inspectors at po-
I lice headquarters.
When a shoplifter is oaught dead to
I rights, she is asked if she will not "pay
for tho artioles" stolen. This interrogatory ia merely mado in order to elicit'
an admission of guilt from the thief.
She is then taken to tho office to await
tbe arrival of an inspector from polico
headquarters. If aho has the appearance
of a woman of means, sho can easily
procure bail and thus escape tho pain
and dejection of a night in prison.
in speaking of ber experience, Miss
McNameo says that a largo porcoutage
of shoplifters aro women of good fain- {
ilios and comparatively woll off In !
worldly goods.
"Wo have to watob pretty carefully
to catch tho professional shoplifter," she
began. "You see, they aro up to all
sorts of chicanery and can easily hoodwink tbe salesgirl, who may be busy
with half a dozen customers at the same
time. You would never beliovo, to see
thou women on the street In all thoir
finery, that thoy would steal. Somo of ■
tho shoplifters are born thioves. They
haunt tho dry goods houses aud steal every timo they gut n chance. You may
not beliovo it, but 1 cau lull at first

Modern   Heroine*   at   Leant  Are  Longei
Lived Than Jane Auiiten'e Were,
Is tho human raco becoming longer
lived despite the frot nnd fever of modern civilization? It is nn interesting
question, nnd it mny vory probably bo
answered Bcmo day by scionco in tho
affirmative. Tho longevity of professional mon is now generally considered
to be greater than thnt of farmers or
mechanics. In other words, intellectual activity, although in many respects
more exhausting thau physical, has in
tho main a salutary effect upon tbo human frame. It may be tho nerves rather
than the muscles npon which wo mainly depend, after all. It is a commonplace of observation that tho big, hearty
men aro constantly dropping out of the
world, whilo thoso uf far moro fragile
organizations apparently livo on to a
ripe old age.
As to tho increasing longevity of the
raco generally, thero is no littlo Incidental testimony on this head to bo
gathered from various sources. Somo of
tho early heroes and heroines of ro-
numco aro old before they reach what
we should call middle life. And at tho
beginning of our own century Jane
Austen, whoso testimony is always unimpeachable, speaks of tho healthy aud
contouted woman of 40 as having a good
prospect of 20 years of life yot. Twenty
years! What woman of today tbiuka of
herself aa falling into decrepitude nt 00?

Upon tbo call of the house they sop*
•rated.—Detroit Tribune. One Grocer has been found who
says he will not handle
Royal Baking Powder!
And the reason he gives is of interest to
every housekeeper. It is that he can make
more money selling the other baking powders! He says he can buy all other powders
at from 20 to 50 per cent, lower price than
Royal, while he sells them at the same price.
That means when the housekeeper buys some
powder other than the Royal she pays the
same price, but gets a powder costing to make
and worth only half as much.
It is a fact that the Royal Baking Powder is
made from more highly refined, purer, and
more wholesome ingredients than any other
baking powder. Most of the others are made
from alum. All of them contain adulterants or
impurities. Absolutely pure cream of tartar and
soda, as used in the Royal, cost more than impure creamof tartar and alum; hence the greater
cost, as well as greater value, of the Royal.
The grocer who says he will not handle
Royal Baking Powder because he can make
more profit upon other jxiwders proves to the
consumer, most conclusively, the superior value
of the Royal over all other brands.

The world grew pure,  the heart graw
And sunshine gleamed a littlo while
Across the darkness of the atom.

It Is nnsafo to allow nny ordinary woman to outer a store with money. Sho

and Is constantly in need of tho latter.
Sho goes forth to purchase an opera bonnet beoansesho Is going to tho opera that

papers, and all tho denominational boards
will lie asked to furnish their missionary
publlealiuus for that purpose. Tho space
In Machinery hull to he devoted to tho special stato headquarters will be portioned
off among the various state unions, and
each will bo asked to decorate and fit up
its own spaco in somo characteristic and
Individual fashion. Undoubtedly this Innovation will add greatly to the attractiveness of tho stato headquarters, slnco if ths
plan Is well realized it will be postdblo foi
any delegate to spend an entire day In Machinery hull with profit nnd pleasure.
Iu addition to these stato headquarters
in tbo hall, each state will have some ono
of tbo Boston churches for a rendezvous,
and ns soon as tbo delegates arrive in Boston t hey will register at these churches
and bo billeted without delay. As far as
possible, tho delegates from each stato will
bu located In tho immediate vicinity of
their church headquarters, and no assignments of Individuals will bo mado in ud-
vunce of their reaching Boston. Some of
the state delegations will be sent Into the
beautiful suburbs of tho city. Tills has
been decided upon, because it will bo Impossible to comfortably locate all lu attendance within the city limits, but no doubt
those located outsldo will consider themselves very fortunate, since tho suburbs of
Boston nro among tlie most desirable surroundings of any city in America.
Tho observances of tho occasion will bo-
gin on Wednesday evening with meetings
at a score or more of tho city churches.
The next morning, and every morning
during tho sessions of tbu convention,
there will bo sunrise prayer meetings, at
tho same churches at half past 0 o'clock.
Tbe list of speakers who will tako part in
tho morning and evening meetings will
include, thu names of many of tbo most
widely known clergy men In tbo country,
among them being Dwlght h. Moody, Dr.
Harper, Dr. Tulmugo and others. Among
tlio speakers who will be heard In Mechanics' hall are Dr. P. S. Heusou of Chicago, who will also preside at the Saturday
meeting, beginning at !);.Juu. in., for tbe
purpose of Inculcating patriotic sentiment c. This meeting and two others for
the sumo purpose, to bo held at the same
time In tho two tents, will together form
one of tlie most important features of the
cut in- gathering. Hon. Klijah Morse, ono
of the representatives In congress from
Massachusetts, will bo among the prominent speakers at tho Mechanics' hall mooting, and ho wilt be followed by Bishop
Walters of tho A. M. E. Zioti church,
whi.se topic will bo "Tho Responsibility of
tlio African Church In America." At this
meeting also good citizenship banners and
diplomas will Iw presented to the societies
and local unions that havo dono most
woi-!t for good citizenship, Hov. William
Patterson of Toronto will make the prus-
eni;;tioti address. An open parliament
on tbe subject, "What Aro You Doing For
America?" will bo lal by Hov. William
C. Clarke of Chicago, who was at tbo forefront of the crusade against tho gambling
dens of thnt city.
IVi'sidctit ('lurk of the society will preside at thu patriotic meeting in tent No. 1,
where a feature will be thu hearing of
"voices" from different sections of America. Thus a prominent representative of
the west will glvu a" voice from tbe west,"
one from tho oust will give "a voice from
tbo east," ono from the south "a voice
from the south," one from the Dominion
"u voice from Canada," and soon. The
principal address will be delivered by
Bishop Arnett nf Mississippi. In tent No.
8 Dr. Hurrell of thu city of New York will
preside, nml then', too, will bu heard Ave
"voices" from different purls of thocon-
tltient. Hon. Neal Dow, the veteran temperance man, will also speak.
At the dose of tbe Mas Ion In the main
auditoriums, the delegates will gather on
Huntington nvcnuu and march with flying
banners and streaming (lags through the
streets to historic Boston Common, where
a nionsler open air deuiotistnilIon will be
made. The mayor uf tho city, the governor
of the state, Dr. Donald McLnureii of Detroit and other loading men will deliver
addresses of a put riot in nature, and Dr. S.
K. Smith, thu venerable author of "Amor-
lea," will read tbo words of his noted ode,
which will lie sung by tho multitude, led
by a chorus of 8,000 voices and nn Immense
orchestra. As a souvenir, ouch delegate
will lie presented with a handsomely Illuminated copy of "America" from Miss
Helen (ioiihi, who has made tliucommlttoo
of 1M.5 a gift of 60,000 copies for this purpose. Nothing so Important as this demons! rat Ion lias occurred on Boston Common
since the days of the Revolution. On Saturday evening then> will bo receptions and
rallies by the state unions, In which the
putrl.it ie Idea will have npmiulnont place.
On Monday there will Iw pilgrimages to
a number of places made famous In tut
■surly history of Boston.
Brings comfort and improvement nnd
tends to personal enjoyment when
rightly used. Tho many, who live better than others and enjoy life more, with
'ess expenditure, by more promptly
uiapting the wo* Id's best products to
tho needs of physical being, will attest
lie value to health of the pure liquid
axativc principles embraced in tbe
remedy, Syrup of Figs.
Its excellence is due to its presenting
in the form most acceptable and pleasant to the taste, the refreshing and truly
beneficial properties of a perfect laxative; effectually cleansing the system,
dispelling colds, headaches and fevers
and permanently curingpeonstipation.
It has given satisfaction to millions and
met with the approval of the medical
profession, because it acts on the Kidneys, Liver and Bowels without weakening them and it is perfectly free from
every objectionable sulwta;:ce.
Syrup of Figs is for sale by all druggists in fjOc ami $1 bottles, but it is manufactured by the California Fig Syrup
Co. only, whose name is printed on every
package, also the name, Syrup of Figs,
und being well informed, you will not
accept any substitute if oflercd.
How much they suffer when nervous,
weak und tired.
Nervous prostration Is a lingering,
tacking, living death to thoso afflicted,
though wholly incomprehensible to
others. The cause of this condition is
impure and Insufficient Blood.
Mako the blood pure, give it vitality
Htid it will properly feed the nerves and
make them strong. Mood's Sarsaparilla
cures iiervoUHiiess because it acts directly upon the blood, making it rich
and pure and endowing it with vitality
and ktrength-giving power. No other
medicine hus such a record of cures.
Thousands write that they Buffered
intensely with nervousness and were
cured by this great medicine. The
building-up powers of Hood's Sarsaparilla are wonderful. Even a few
doses are sufficient to create an appetite, and from that time on its healing,
purifying, strengthen in'/ effects are
plainly felt. The nerves become
stronger, the sleep becomes natural
and refreshing, tbe hands and Hmhe
become steady, and soon "life seems
to go on without effort," and perfect
health is restored. Such iu the uoik
which Hood's Sarsaparilla is doing for
hundreds of women today.

(jonLlonmn, H is eaBy for thoso ao-
nuaintocl with liis temper to irnag;
hie, will return home swelling with
complacency and guileless pride at
ihis fresh manifestation of the high
pedestal of foreign favor upon
which the credit of British Columbia has been placed all because of
tlie lofty administrative talents
possessed by the little coterie of
Victorians into lybose bunds the
(Government of this Province has
|)een placed by a wise and beneficent Providence, il is true that that
exquisite financier, Mr. IT. G. Vernon, to whom the people of this
country are under lasting obligations for bis transcendent services
-o generously bestowed in tlie important office of Administrator of
bands and Works, and who hits
now banished himself to England,
Ibere to continue his benefits to
litis public as Financial Agent
Abroad, for the trifling pension of
#0,000, freely given by an admiring
people- it is true we say, that this
talented Financial Agent was not
aide to placethe last little bagatelle
iif a loan, and strangely enough, it
became necessary to cull in tbe aid
of Premier Turner, who, as. is well
known, is a very Nintrod in Finances. Thus tlie loan was brilliantly
negotiated, and it hardly need be
slated that no one will begrudge
tho capable Turner his trifling trav-
dling expenses or tlie incapable
Vernon the small stipend that he
perhaps would not object to earning
if he could. Any meanness of that
kind might cause these gifted men
■to drop the public service in dud
geon, and a calamity of that kind
may not lie contemplated without
alarm. Certainly British Columbia
Is naturally blessed with wonderful
resources in agriculture, mineral?,
lish, ami timber, but tlie stupid
people in Europe who lend money
by (be million cannot be expected
to consider side matters of tliis kind.
Their confidence, us is abundantly
manifest, is pinned to the men of
genius who are building a million
dollar Parliament House for a new
ri'tllenienl of (if>,0(l() people, and
who oven aspire to bridge the pea
with u railway ferry boat for (he
benefit of some certain Victorian
business men, who ovary one knows,
cut a much larger figure than the
remainder ol the people of tlie Pre
of Victoria arc idolized. No indeed,
we must retain our Turner ami our
llaker, etc., at any cost, for without
the credit thut these Illustrious
men throw off like an emanation,
|l. I', could hope for no favors from
Ihe whimsical inonoylender*across
thu Atlantic. Indeed, ii almost
seems us though, iu Ibis lust financing trip, Promlor Turner mado n
mistake in nut bringing his confi-
(leiii'c-inspiriiig colleagues along

The paper referred to is called "The

or provincial security, we do not
consider Columbian three per cent:
at 95 an advisable investment
When the Hon. J. H. Turner, the
premier and Finance Minister left
for London on March 30th to
negotiate the present loan, it
was staled that it would
raise the funded indebtedness of
tlie Province to over $11,000,000. Of
tlie present issue, it is understood
that two-thirds will be required to
meet liabilities already incurred
If from tliis lie deducted tlie cost of
floatng the loan, interest, discounts,
etc., the balance left will bo small
probably not much more than
£100,000. For the year ending
June 80th, 1898, there was a Budget deficit of over #400,000, and for
last year thp deficit was estimated
at upwards of #700,000—a very
large percentage of tho gross rev
enuo. For about six years there
has been a chronic deficit of over
#200,000. Besides the debt of
#11,000,000-.-which is a heavy one,
having regard to the sparsity of tlie
white popplation—there is the
(piestion of tlie Railway guaran
tees. Moreover, the prospectus
itself is vague. For instance, the
loan is stated to lie required for the
construction of public works, Why
are not these specified ? It is known
that some time ago $(iOO,000 was
voted for Parliament Buildings at
Victoria. These are now in coups*
of construction, and we hear that
thoy will exceed the estimate hy
considerable sum. At any rate, it
cannot be claimed that they are
remunerative public works, and it
would appear to bp difficult to
justify such an expenditure in the
circumstances of the Province at
the presont lime. Apart from the
Provincial debt, it would have
been satisfactory to have known
something as to tlie state of the
Provincial guarantees for public
works, Miiuli as thoso of the Shu-
swap und Okanagan Railway, the
Nakusp and Blocan Railway, etc
Has tlie working of any of these
railways justified the guarantee "
We certainly have the promise
Unit no new debt will be incurred
for at least three years, but is this
assurance to lie taken to mean that
there will lie no further guarantee
on unreinunerative works, such as
the Canada Western Railway, of
which wo have heard so much and
which we are told the present Government is pledged to carry
through '.' The broad fact reniainp
that the revenue hup actually decreased during tbe last two years,
and since IW there has been a
considerable annual deficit. We
offer these remarks with the best

the subject of debate, and as thore
must be two sides to a debate, it
may reasonably be ex peeled that
full details will be brought out,
The other source of likely information is in Ihe libel suit of Fitzsim-

shortly come up for trial, and will

Smith's Falls, June 5.—At yes-
session of  the Montreal
t Conference, there was a
spirited discussion on the Manitoba
school (piestion.    Dr. Shaw endeavored by various means to shelve
the subject, but Ihe Conference was
.        . almost   unanimous   In  declaring
.'.'.'.'i!.''"!!..'..!!'! .! V.m".T.'.il I? IK I"K"inst FedS»rttl interference.
Reading the above telegram sug
gests that if opinion was almost
unanimous there could not have
been much room for a spirited discussion. The probability is that
Dr. Shaw, was of opinion that Federal interference could not lie avoided under the judgment of the Privy
Council, and that lie had a good
measure of support in that view.
It is hard to read the official documents in any other light than that
Federal interference is imperative;
either by the Executive or by Parliament, Following are the ('losing
sentences pf tlie judgment:
"Their Lordships have decided
that the Governor-Ceneral in Coun
oil has jurisdiction, and that tlie
appeal is well founded, but the particular course to be pursued must
be determined by the authorities to
whom it has been committed by the
statute. It is not for this tribunal
to intimate the precise steps to be
taken. Their general character is
sufficiently defined by tlie 8rd subsection of section '22 of tlie Manitoba Act. It is certainly not cssen-
tial that the Statutes repealed by
the Act of 1890 should lip re-enacted, or that the precise provisions of
these ptatutes should again lie made
law. The syptem of education embodied in the Acts of 1890 ne
doubt commends itself to, and adequately supplies the wants of the
great majority of the inhabitants
of the Province. All legitimate
grounds of complaints would be
removed if that system were supplemented by provisions which
would remove the grievance upon
which the appeal is founded, and
wero modified so far as might be
necessary to give effect to these
provisions. Their Lordships will
humbly advipe Her Majepty that
the questions submitted should be
answered in the manner indicated
by the views which they huve ex-
Thcpe words are not words of advice or opinion, but of judgment.
Taken in conjunction with the
whole tenor of the judgment the
only meaning that can be attached
to them is that there is a grievance,
that the Federal authorities have
power to correct that grievance, and
that they are required to do so.

According to the Victoiia Times
some of the inmates of the Old
Men's Home in that city, who are
being taken care of by the public
in their declining days, have been
enjoying themselves in a way to
make ono. admire the kindly benevolence of the management of tliis
benignant institution. Willi tlie
improved accommodation and increased conveniences that tlie new
Home at Kaniloops will likely afford, coupled with the entertainment now enjoyed, il is easy lo believe that the institution will be
duly appreciated by ull the old and
worn-out "hummers" in tlio Province. Says last Friday's Times:
"Several of the old men at the Old
Men's Home have been having a
liilarnus time during tlie last 21
hours. One of them was gloriously
drunk yesterday afternoon, and the
spree was continued this morning.
As one alderman put it, "The Opposition ure celebrating (be dismissal of the caretaker and tlie resignation of tlie chairman of Ihe committee.' It is supposed that liquor
was smuggled into tlie houso by
some outsider. It lias been suspected for some tjmg Unit one of

Trouble with Bedouin Arabs.
Constantinople,June5,- Advices
received here from Djeddah, the
Arabian seaport town of Mecca,
where the Consular officers of Great
Britain, Russia, and Franco were
recently murderously assaulted,
announce that a panic prevails
thero and it is feared the Bedouins
will attack the town. The latter
are hold responsible for the attack
upon the Consuls which resulted
in the death of thp British Vice-
Consul. A number of them were
arrested in consequence. Tliis has
caused an angry feeling among the
Bedouins, who demand their release and also threaten to use force
if the demands are not complied
with. The situation is so serious
that the Europeans of Djeddah are
hastily seeking refuge 0I1 board
mprchaut vessels in the harbor,
taking with them all they possibly
can of their belongings. It is also
said in advices from Djeddah that
the arrival of the Britisli Mediterranean squadron, numbering 17
warships of various ellipses, is anxiously expected even by the Turkish authoriiies, as thq garrison is
vory weak. In addition to the excitement caused among the Bedouins by the arrest of those pup-
posed to huve been connected with
the assault upon the foreign Consuls the Bedouins arp dissatisfied
with the quarantine measures
which the Turkish Government
has beon compelled to take at
Mecca, at the instance of tho
Powers, in order te prevent the
introduction of cholera |n northern
