It is believed' that Mr. Lemieux,  the'present Solicitor General, will  be.chosen ta succeed Mr. Prefon-  tatne iu the cabinet, and that Mr.  Belcourt, M. P. for Ottawa, will become Solicitor -General. Others  hold that Mr. Belcourt will get the  vacant portfolio.  Tekiu, Dec. 2S. ��� Considerable  apprehension is felt here as it is  feared that the present irritation of  the Chinese against all classes of  foreigners .is .growing rapidly aud is  likely to spiead throughout the  entire country. The -'China for  the Chinese" anti-American boycott has been followed by much discussion of China's many wrongs at1  the hands of all foreigners generally  and a determination has been arrived at to claim complete icdress  for all such injustices. The withdrawal of all the international troops  frotiuCliina in 1900 was opposed by  the authorities at Shanghai and is  blamed lor the present trouble.  Moscow, Dec. 28.���Cannonading  continued all clay yesterday and,  today'the fighting has been renewed  with desperate vigor. The number  of casualties is increasing rapidly  and will reach a stupeuduous figure.  The 1 evolutionists are armed with  modern rifles aud revolveis and  time and again during the fighting  they have caused terrible .gaps in  the ranks of the government troops.

Berlin, Dec. 2S.���The conviction  prevails- dn .-the ��� German foreign  office ithat the Russian government  ,is holding its own aud that 'the situation is -believed to have improved  considerably, during ...the past .two  days.  St. Petersburg, Dec. 2S.���The;  Russian govefnuient-'-expeas'that  -the present revolt at Moscow will be,  crushed within the next four days.

The property -loss was  not given.      , ���  St. Petersburg, Dec. 2S.���Reports  which have been received here today go to show that over five thousand people were killed outright  and that fully fourteen thousand  other persons were severely injured  iu the fighting which took place on  Christmas Day at Moscow between  the'government troops aiid the revolutionary forces. Hate for one another had almost completely, converted both the soldiers and rebels  into unfettered madmen and they  fell upon each other like animals of  prey and committed the most horrible and before unheard of enormities.' The .entire population, other  than -combatants, was stricken with  absolute fear.  Paris, Dec. 2S.���Several of the  swiftest''French warships' have been  ordered to proceedwith all possible,  .haste to the Bailie sea,and to assist  iu the work   of   rescuing   refugees  of all nationalities from Russia.

Although**semi-order is prevalent  is many parts of the empire Russia's'  government is still face to face with  her people in a desperate stiuggle  and only the foolhardy risk predict  ���tions as to' what .the outcome will  >be. It may be a repnblic-or it may  be a monarchy iu the end, but most  .assuredly it will be n   -vcii tabic-hell  until either one or tlie other is firiii-  :ly established.  Moscow, Dec. 29.���The-backbone  ���of the insurrection in this city and  Burrouiidiuj; dialiiuL hub bc=n biokcn  and order is being rapidly establish-'  ed. -- The streets and buildings bear  the appearances of a-veritable battlefield after a desperate-and prolonged  combat.

How do you feel about  things in general?  But, more particularly, liow do  you, today, regard the things that  worried you so much just one   year.-  ?g��? , < -  There you arc���you have to slop  and try to remember just what you  were worrying, about one year ago.  Funny, isn't it? The things that  seemed so big and terrible a year  a'go, have so faded -into the  "ewigheit" that you have to stir up  your memory in an attempt to recall  them. As our French brothers  would say:    "It is to laugh."  Yes, you'll readily admit all .this  ���but, still, here you  are   hard   at  work   over  a   new crop of worries.  Don't yon know that  today's   worries   are   not  a bit more real than  those of a year ago?    Its all a matter of perspective.    If you can mau-  ""Tgc   lo   regard  today's worries just  as you are now able-to see those   of  just   one   year   ago, you will solve  the problem of calmness, poise and  peace.    Somewhat hard  to get over  the delusion of perspective, but it's  worth   while to try it.    Why don!l  you ?

The midnight service in the English church ou Christmas live was  well attended. Services were also  held in the same church at S a.m.  and 11 a.m. on Christinas Day.  The greater part of Atlin's population spent Christmas Day in a  quiet and sociable manner. During  the lale morning and early afternoon  people moved round and exchanged  calls and greetings. Quite a' few  skated, others curled and a number  went sleighing.  Diuneis at family and oilier boards  were pleasant features of the day  aud wc must say that the lot of the  average Atlin bachelor���who certainly enjoys an enviable privilege;  and whose welfare was and is always looked after by one or other  of his more fortunate friends���was  good to behold. : If he could have  partaken of each of the many good  feasts to which he had been invited  it is safe to say that he would not  have required further food for a  month.

Does'Mr. Joker realize that by  taking this means of being funny  that he places all those connected  with the Xmas tree in a very unhappy position.
